Putting all hard feelings aside for a special event, Jimmy Kimmel reached out to Jay Leno ahead of his final episode of "The Tonight Show."

Filled with nothing but praise and adoration for his old enemy, the "Jimmy Kimmel Live" host congratulated Jay on his fantastic two-decade run as the face of the iconic talk show.

Taking to Twitter to forgive and forget, Jimmy wrote, "Issues aside, 20 years at #1 is a remarkable achievement. Congratulations and best wishes to @jayleno on an incredible run."

The drama between the two hosts began when Jay was taken off his show and replaced by Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy publicly announced his disliking of him on more than one occasion.
