Ever wonder what will happen during the last five minutes of late-night TV talk shows? They let musicians onstage! Here are tonight’s notable performers:
Late Show With David Letterman (CBS): Jesse Harris With Norah Jones
Harris (who wrote Jones’ hit “Don’t Know Why” and played on Bright Eyes’ I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning) will perform “It Will Stay With Us” from new solo album Watching The Sky.
The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (NBC): Prince
The first of three consecutive Leno appearances to promote three simultaneously released albums that will be available exclusively at Prince’s local hometown store (Target, whose corporate HQ is in Minneapolis). It would be wild if it turned out that Prince owns Target.
Late Late Show (CBS): Ra Ra Riot
The Syracuse, N.Y., band will be playing “Can You Tell” from last year’s The Rhumb Line.
