Wow! They sure found a new guy quickly!
Just two days after Kevin Eubanks announced his resignation as band leader on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, we've learned that American Idol musical director Rickey Minor will be succeeding him in the position!
Although an official announcement will be made later today, NBC has confirmed that Minor has joined the late night talk show and will be debuting on June 7th!
Not bad, Jay! Pretty solid replacement, if you ask us!!
What do U think?? Are U excited about Rickey's new job??
