Jimmy Fallon Enlists Ariana Grande, Kevin Hart & Will Ferrell For 'Tonight Show' Super Bowl Special
With Super Bowl fever in the air, Jimmy Fallon has announced his guests for The Tonight Show's post-Super Bowl telecast this Sunday coming to you from the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix, Arizona. Ariana Grande is slated to perform with house band The Roots while Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart are set to compete with Fallon in the ultimate Lip Sync Battle, Deadline reports.
Depending on your time zone and how much time the big game takes, the special might air on February 2 for some viewers. The Tonight Show will follow the Super Bowl XLIX broadcast, a new episode of The Blacklist, and the late local news.
Fallon will continue to take his show on the road next week, from Monday through Thursday, in Los Angeles at Universal Studios Hollywood. It will be the show's first broadcast from L.A. since moving back to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.
As Deadline points out, next week's guest on the West Coast include Michael Keaton, Gwen Stefani, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Young, Vin Diesel, Carl Reiner, Will Smith, Rosamund Pike, and Jack White.
Super Bowl XLIX takes place this Sunday, February 1. Katy Perry will perform at the halftime show along with guest performer Lenny Kravitz. As previously reported, John Legend and Idina Menzel will perform at the pregame festivities with Menzel singing the national anthem and Legend singing "America the Beautiful."
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 EST on NBC.
