For many late-night viewers, the annual performance signifies the arrival of the holiday season. When David Letterman announced plans to retire in 2015, fans of his show knew that Love's last performance would be something to remember. The "Late Show" crew pulled all the stops out for the performance that was taped Dec. 18 and aired Dec. 19.
