Jimmy Kimmel: an Eminem exclusive

David Letterman had U2; Jay Leno had Prince. And now Jimmy Kimmel will be presenting an exclusive, multi-night stand by Eminem, who has been out of the public eye for a while but is coming back with a new CD, Relapse, due out May 19.

According to an ABC press release, on Friday, May 15, Kimmel will feature Eminem as his only guest; the rapper will be interviewed by Jimmy and perform. On Tuesday, May 19, the Friday show will be rerun -- but with a new musical performance, live from Detroit. On Friday the 22nd, there will be yet another new song by Eminem, also from Detroit, along with guests Hank Azaria and Anton Yelchin.

Longtime "Jimmy Kimmel Live" fans may remember Jimmy's one-on-one basketball game with the performer, a comedy segment from the show's Super Bowl week in Detroit.
