“American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert will help welcome Jay Leno back to late night in March.
The “upcoming events” section of Lambert’s web site says he’ll be performing his song “Music Again” on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday, March 2 — Leno’s second show back after the failed prime-time experiment and subsequent shakeout of NBC’s lineup.
Lambert’s bulletin follows reports this week that Jamie Foxx would be Leno’s first guest on the new-old “Tonight Show” March 1. As was the case with Foxx, NBC isn’t commenting about possible bookings.
Speaking of things old and new, NBC has unveiled its first promos for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” 2.0. One that aired during Olympics coverage on Wednesday (Feb. 17) is a play on the Leno-at-10 spots the network ran before the start of the season (although we’re guessing Conan O’Brien isn’t laughing), and the other uses the Beatles’ “Get Back.” Take a look.
Will the Lambert news get you to tune in to “The Tonight Show”? What do you think of the promos?
