Kanye West Among Seth Meyers’ First Guests on ‘Late Night’

Late Night with Seth Meyers

Kanye West will be among the first guests on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

The "Bound 2" rapper is part of a star-studded line-up including John Mayer, Lena Dunham and Vice President Joe Biden, who will all appear throughout the week when the chat show debuts on NBC on February 24. Among the other guests will be Kelly Ripa, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Sophia Bush, Trio, Brad Paisley and A Great Big World.

The news comes after network NBC announced that Amy Poehler, who co-starred with Seth on Saturday Night Live and its comedy news sketch "Weekend Update," will be appearing on the first show.

Seth has succeeded former Late Show host, Jimmy Fallon who is stepping in to replace Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. Jay wrapped filming on the chat show last week after over 20 years as its host and fought back tears as he thanked viewers for their loyalty. The 63-year-old funny man was joined by a galaxy of stars for his last ever broadcast at the Burbank Studios in California, including Kim Kardashian and Billy Crystal, who led everyone in a comedic rendition of The Sound of Music's "So Long, Farewell" along with Jack Black, The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons and chat show legend Oprah Winfrey.
