Update: Thursday night, NBC issued a press note confirming Madonna as an interview guest for the February 16 “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

The official “Tonight Show” website was subsequently updated to reflect her forthcoming visit.

Friday night, both references to Madonna were removed. She does not appear in the latest press lineup, and her image is no longer featured on the show’s official website.

Currently, only interview guest Robert Irwin and musical guest Rag’n’Bone Man are listed for the February 16 “Tonight Show.”

It thus appears Madonna will not, in fact, be appearing on that episode. Headline Planet will provide an update in the event a new date is confirmed.
