It started with an MSNBC clip that The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno was using for one of his comedy bits, when gorgeous TV anchor Tamron Hall caught the eye of Jay’s outgoing bandleader, Kevin Eubanks.

“Jay, who is the newscaster there — she was fine, who was that?” Eubanks asked last month, joking that Leno never played matchmaker for him.
On Wednesday’s show, Eubanks finally got his wish, as Leno brought out the stunning Hall, clad in a form-fitting blue dress, to bid the bandleader adieu.
“I’ll let you kids get acquainted!” Jay joked.
Eubanks, 52, announced he was leaving the Tonight Show last month, ending a 15-year stint as the show’s musical director since Branford Marsalis left in 1995. His last night is set for Friday.
