After almost five years on the 'TODAY' show, Meredith Vieira  left her post as co-anchor of NBC's top-rated program.

It was an understandably emotional farewell for Vieira, who thanked the crew members of the show and all of her viewers. "All of you I will put in my heart," she said.

"I'm so honored to have sat with all of you," she added, before joking, "Most of you."

Vieira announced her departure last month, citing the instense work schedule as her main reason for leaving. Vieira also got a special farewell from legendary singer Carole King, who performed her hit single, 'You've Got a Friend.' As you can predict, she was moved to tears.

Take alook at Meredith's emotional farewell below along with some hof her most memorable moments on the show.
