Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Kanye West are set to be the first musical guests to kick off Jay Leno’s new show. The trio will perform a single off of Jay-Z’s new album, called Run This Town.
Jay Leno’s new show debuts on September 14, and though Jay is starting off huge as far as his musical guest line up, the network says future shows will have fewer musical acts. Instead, Jay will feature an interesting combination of performers.
Leno, who resigned as host of “Tonight” in May, is hoping to count of guests to do more than just talk.
Leno’s new show, titled ‘The Jay Leno Show’, will feature one or two celebrities, the occasional musical guest, and will keep the popular “Headlines” and “Jaywalking” segments, but they will now air near the end of the show.
Jay is having an electric car track built near the NBC studio in Burbank, where one of the things he will implement into the new show is called the “Green Car Challenge” in which celebrities will race around a track for the title of the fastest green celebrity.
The series will air weekdays at 10 p.m. EDT.
