Keith Richards, Lauryn Hill join Jimmy Fallon's Bob Marley tribute week

Jimmy Fallon is giving viewers two more reasons to lose a little sleep in honor of Bob Marley.

Last week, EW’s Music Mix announced that Late Night With Jimmy Fallon would spend this week paying tribute to Marley, with each of the week’s musical guests performing a classic cut by the reggae legend. Ziggy Marley, Chris Cornell, Jennifer Hudson, Jakob Dylan and Lenny Kravitz were already signed on for the salute (which kicks off tonight with Ziggy), and now the show has announced that Keith Richards and Lauryn Hill will both be joining in the fun.

Hill, who has had five children with Marley’s son Rohan, will be the musical guest on Thursday night’s show (May 12), when she is scheduled to perform a pair of songs in an extremely rare television appearance.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stones guitarist and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides star Richards will sit down with Fallon on Wednesday night (May 11) to chat about the movie, his recent best-selling autobiography and the current status of his seminal band.

He’s not currently scheduled to perform, but Richards has a hard time turning down opportunities to crank up his guitar, and considering his enthusiasm for reggae, it seems likely he’ll be tipping his pirate hat to Marley in some fashion.

Who are you most excited about seeing perform a Bob song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this week? What tracks should each artist try to tackle? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Any opportunity to see Lauryn Hill is exciting. After how wonderful Jennifer Hudson was last week on Fallon promoting her new album, I’m also really looking forward to her version of “No Woman No Cry”!

    Not sure about Jeniffer Hudson she oversings too much they should have opted for Erykah Badu. Jeniffer’s voice is irritating.

        This is a phenomenal woman who has grecad us with her impeccable talent. I love Miss Hill and I hope once more you will grace my generation with the beauty of your talent. I love you, may Jah bless all your days and I hope your children will take after you with your mastery of langauge and composure. I just miss the presents of your music on radio stations and music channels. A woman with self-respect and dignity and I am disgusted that they would compare Lauryn Hill to Nicki Minaj.
