Watch again! Thia Megia & Naima Adedapo on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno (Videos/Photos)

UPDATED: Backstage Q&A with Bryan of the Jay Leno show (scroll down)
Naima Adedapo and Thia Megia visit the set of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" last Friday- a first for Season 10. Not sure if this is going to be a regular thing moving forward but Karen Rodriguez didn't get an invite in the prior week. (video and more photos after the jump!)

They came as musical guests so Jay have them segueing to open and close the show in between commercials and talking with guests Vin Diesl and Ashley Tisdale.

Before the two sing, Jay chats about the mansion being haunted and Naima shares her 'ghost' experience.

Jay teases Thia "did you have anything creepy happen besides Ryan Seacrest?" The crowd laughs including the two guests. Jay comebacks with "We love the Seacrest!"

Thia then talks about her own 'ghost' episode at the mansion.

Thia and Naima sounded so good with Rickey Minor and his band! Not sure why its different from the Idol stage but Rickey's band seem to get the mixing right- not too over or under powering the singers. (FYI: Ricky Minor was a longtime musical director of American Idol until he was offered the Jay Leno stint last year.)

The two also have that "I'm-not-competing-anymore very comfortable and refreshed look.

The set:
"Teenage Dream" (?!) - Duet
"Dancing in the Street" (with the African inspired dancing) - Naima
"Heat wave" - Thia
"Umbrella (very short!!) - Naima
"Out Here on my Own" - Thia

Loved, loved that Thia closed her set with "Out Here on my Own" We want to hear this on tour! Can't wait to see both on tour!

Looking forward to their appearance on "Live with Regis and Kelly." The two are on their way to New York City where the show is staged. Catch it on Monday morning, April 4th.
