Prince‘s three-night stint on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno kicks off this evening, and while we love Ra Ra Riot, the Purple One has to be our pick of the night. He’s promoting his new three-disc set, which goes on sale at Target this Sunday, and the launch of his website, LOTUSFLW3R. These multinight stop-overs are a growing trend (U2 spent an entire week with Letterman, and Chris Cornell will appear on Carson Daly tonight for the second night in a row), and while we’re not sure we’ll be tuning in should Nickelback announce a month-long residency on Larry King Live, for now we approve. More Prince!

Also scheduled for tonight:

All-American Rejects on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Blue October on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Jesse Harris with Norah Jones on the Late Show with David Letterman
Chris Cornell on Last Call with Carson Daly
Ra Ra Riot on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson
