Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West will perform on premiere of Jay Leno Show



Hip-hop doesn't exactly come to mind when we hear the name Jay Leno, but that hasn't stopped him from lining up an all-star cast of performers for his return to TV on Sept. 14. The chinned one will have Rihanna, Jay-Z and Kanye West all on the same night -- take that, Conan O'Brien!

All three will perform Run This Town from Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3, which will come out on Sept. 11, Access Hollywood reports (listen to it above). "I always come on strong," Leno boasted about the date.

He'll also come on lighter, since he told reporters he's dropped a little weight since leaving The Tonight Show: "I've been running four miles every day," he said. "Lost 12 pounds just trying to get into shape." We're lost 15 just trying to figure out why that trio agreed to be on the premiere of The Jay Leno Show.
