Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Drake, Kanye West Scheduled For “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”

Next week’s string of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” will welcome three superstar hip-hop acts. At least two are confirmed for performances.

The syndicated talk show’s official website confirms Macklemore & Ryan Lewis for the May 17 episode. The duo will take the stage on an episode that also features interview guests Colin Farrell and Bill Hader.

While not yet confirmed on the official website, television provider listings say Drake is scheduled for the May 18 broadcast. The listings do not confirm whether he will be there for an interview, a performance, or both.

Television provider listings confirm Kanye West for the May 19 episode. West is listed as both an interview and musical guest; the episode will also feature “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson.

As recent scheduling changes have emphasized — Fifth Harmony’s advertised performance date was moved twice, Chris Stapleton’s confirmed performance was moved — all listings should be treated as tentative.

Those latest “Ellen” listings follow:

5/11: Wanda Sykes, musical guest Journey (officially advertised)
5/12: Alec Baldwin, musical guest Keith Urban (officially advertised)
5/13: Ryan Gosling (officially advertised)
5/16: Christina Aguilera, Bryce Dallas Howard, Kym Douglas (officially advertised)
5/17: Colin Farrell, Bill Hader, musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (officially advertised)
5/18: Drake (not yet officially advertised)
5/19: Taraji P. Henson, interview and musical guest Kanye West (not yet officially advertised)
5/20: Johnny Depp (not yet officially advertised)
