Even though no one was particularly worried that the Roots wouldn't make the leap from "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" over to to "The Tonight Show," there is still no official word from NBC on whether Philly's pride and joy will join Jimmy Fallon when he takes over for Jay Leno in 2014.

As I wrote in today's column, band members Black Thought and Frank Knuckles had tweeted that, yes, they would be making the time switch over to 11:35.

Now Questlove is confirming the move as well in an interview with Fuse, saying that "'The Tonight Show' is coming to us."

Still no official "Yes!" from NBC yet but I'm sure they're just hammering out contract details.

Watch the video below for more on what Questo had to say.
