VIDEO: Star Spotlight on Jay Leno

You've already welcomed Jay Leno into your living room for 17 years as the host of The Tonight Show so there are certain things you already know about the comedian: He's got a famously prominent chin and he's quick with a one-liner. But did you know he's secretly a fan of teen pop music?

"I listen to them all so much now…I couldn't possibly listen to them anymore than I am already!" he says. Okay, so maybe Jay – whose new primetime The Jay Leno Show premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on NBC -- was joking about his music tastes, but he does like Miley Cyrus. "She's a nice kid," he tells iVillage. "She lives like three miles from the studio, and I see her riding her bike. When I see these child stars acting normal, to me that's a good sign."

That could mean we'll be seeing Miley as a guest on The Jay Leno Show, which the funnyman promises will have more laughs and some interesting musical pairings. Watch our exclusive video to find out what's different about Jay's new show and why screaming women were the reason he got into show business.
