Jon's magical night may not have happened if he listened to his wife, Tracey. Years ago, Jon told Tracey to tell him to say no if he was ever offered the Oscar® gig. When that day finally arrived, Tracey says she tried to talk him out of it...but Jon recanted and said he never thought he'd actually be asked!

Tracey watched Jon's antics from the audience on Oscar night, and although millions were also watching, she says she was never nervous for her husband. "I've learned over the years, I never have to be nervous for him," she says. "He always comes through."

Jon and his team of writers spent many long nights and weekends working on his Oscar material, and despite the hard work, Jon says he "had a ball." Oprah wants to know...would he ever host again?

"It was such a great experience," Jon says with a grin. "I don't know!"
