Bill Clinton, Neil deGrasse Tyson, James Franco join Stephen Colbert to sing 'We'll Meet Again' instead of 'goodbye'

Dozens of celebrities, from Bryan Cranston to Willie Nelson, appeared on Thursday's Colbert Report to wish Stephen Colbert well in his new endeavors.

During the episode, Colbert embraced his immortality, discarding his bucket list — which mostly included a variety of fried foods — and saying there was no need for goodbyes, since he'll live forever. Instead, he joined a number of celebrities, including Bill Clinton, James Franco, and Neil deGrasse Tyson, to sing a heartfelt "We'll Meet Again."

The song also featured U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the cast of Sesame Street, and a special appearance from Santa and Abraham Lincoln. Check out the star-studded affair in the video below. --Meghan DeMaria
