Cult rockers They Might Be Giants will swing by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight to promote the latest record Join Us. The new disc is their first non-children's album since 2007, so the group are likely to let out years of pent-up adult angst and sexuality in a blast of anguished vulgarity. Just kidding! They will almost certainly play a song that is adorable, cerebral and catchy because that is what They Might Be Giants do. But you know, maybe not! Tune in to find out.

Anna Calvi - Late Show with David Letterman, CBS 11:35 p.m.

Vanessa Carlton - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 p.m.

Chris Young - Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC 12:00 a.m.

Austin Brown - Lopez Tonight, TBS 12:00 a.m.

They Might Be Giants - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 12:35 a.m.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
