Tonight, “The Late Show with David Letterman” is officially coming to a close, but CBS is being kind enough tonight to give you a brief taste of what to expect early. In the video below, you can see Dave awkwardly run from one side of the stage to the other one last time, and then come out to greet an adoring public.
If there is one thing we can say right now, it is that this is going to be emotional. The crowd gives him a standing ovation, and there is a slight change with how the CBS Orchestra chooses to play him in. What remains strange about all of this is that while Letterman seems to be embracing for the most part all of the tributes, he is also a very low-key guy. This is a person who chooses to avoid the spotlight, rarely does interviews that are not on his own show, and also lives a relatively private life.
This episode even has a mysterious list of guests at the moment. We know that Foo Fighters are set to perform one last time (“Everlong” is one of his favorite songs), and there are many A-listers currently in attendance. We honestly don’t even want to be spoiled very much on what happens on the show, mostly because this is something that we are going to love watching and simply being in the moment for.
We will be back a little bit later tonight for a full review of Letterman’s final show, including some of the people who are in attendance to watch it all play out.
