Justin Bieber is slated to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight (watch The Tonight Show weekdays at 4E/1P on Much) and we’ve got our DVRs set. The Canadian singer finally ended his media hiatus in August, ramping up his promo schedule to prepare for his upcoming fourth album.
This week’s appearance on The Tonight Show is a big one for Bieber, who has mostly appeared on the late-night circuit as a punchline for the past few years. Fallon has always been a great re-entry for struggling artists, inviting the troubled Lindsay Lohan on his show last year to help the actress gain some good press.
Will tonight be another step for Bieber on his way back to the top? We think so. Here are nine things we’d love to see on JB’s return to The Tonight Show.
1. A Performance
We’re hopeful that we’ll see AT LEAST one performance from JB of his new track What Do You Mean?, but will young Bieber give Tonight Show fans a sneak peek at what else he’s got coming down the music pipeline?
2. Album Details
Speaking of the musical pipeline, Bieber’s camp has been pretty quiet on album details. We know the new record drops November 13 and we assume that What Do You Mean? is the lead single, but that’s about it. Bieber has been hinting at working with Drake and hopefully we’ll get confirmation of that duet during The Tonight Show. Producers? Guest vocalists? Number of songs? We’ll take anything at this point.
3. Image Rehab
Justin may have won over the beef-loving crowd during Sunday’s MTV VMAs with his tearful performance, but his days of drag racing and egg throwing aren’t that far in the past yet. Bieber took two years to tear down his image and it’s likely going to take more time than that to repair it. Being humble, gracious and continuing with his charity work on The Tonight Show and in the future are all steps the pop star needs to keep taking to get his career back on track.
4. Status Update
Sunday’s VMA performance didn’t include a single camera shot of Selena Gomez while Bieber was performing, a big step in the public finally letting go of Jelena. So who is the young millionaire dating right now? Uncle Jimmy should definitely be getting to the bottom of this.
Justin is a notorious practical joker and since Fallon seems to be up for anything, expect to see some serious pranks being pulled at 30 Rock. I’d keep my eyes open and my head up, Roots.
6. Special Guests
The countdown for What Do You Mean? pulled in some heavy hitters on the A-list and showed that Justin still has a lot of friends in Hollywood. Now the question is, will any of them make an appearance on The Tonight Show?
7. The Hair
Justin’s mane continues to captivate us with every slice of the scissors and dip of the dye. His recent ode to Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo and Juliet stunned us at first, but we warmed up to the new ‘do pretty quickly. It’s been three days since Bieber debuted his latest look at the VMAs, which means he’s probably already onto the next trend.
8. The Impressions
Notorious impressionist Jimmy Fallon has taken on everyone from Neil Young to, well, the Biebs. We’d love to see the two team up and reenact Miley and Nicki’s confrontation at the VMAs. Just a suggestion.
We haven’t seen Sara without an ‘H’ for a while and we think we know the perfect new friend for her…
