Kanye West to Appear on Jay Leno Tonight

After his tirade at last night’s MTV VMAs, Kanye West may have a chance to defend his actions on the premiere of Jay Leno’s new show.

Jay-Z is scheduled to play on tonight’s debut episode (September 14) and he is set to bring out Rihanna and Kanye to perform their hit single, “Run This Town” from his latest disc, The Blueprint 3. As of press time it is uncertain if Leno will have Jay, Ye and Rihanna on the couch to speak on the awards ceremony.

As previously reported, Kanye bumrushed the stage as Taylor Swift was giving her acceptance speech for the Best Female Video award, beating out Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies.” Ye took the mic from Swift, declaring that “Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all-time.”

After the unpopular outburst, MTV asked Ye and his girlfriend Amber Rose to leave the show. Shortly after returning home, the outspoken rapper apologized to the pop singer on his blog.

Swift wasn’t the only star to be interrupted. Lil Mama hopped onstage unannounced during Jay-Z’s closing performance of “Empire State of Mind” with Alicia Keys. Although Hov brushed her aside as she tried to steal the spotlight, the young New York femcee held her ground, appearing alongside the duo for their closing B-boy stance.

The Jay Leno Show debuts tonight at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
