Gay Comedian Billy Eichner Pays A Screaming Hilarious Visit To David Letterman: VIDEO

"Let's play a game and you scream at me and stuff." Classic.

Openly gay and hilarious Billy on the Street comedian Billy Eichner made his first appearance on The Late Show and, after receiving the above instruction from David Letterman, proceeded to yell his way through an absurd game called "Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?" Pilot Inspector? War Admiral? Blue Angel? Moxie Crime Fighter? It is shockingly impossible to win.

The results are laugh-out-loud funny, and it is clear that Eichner's caustic brand of comedy has a new fan in Letterman. "Do you have any more games we can play? I just like being yelled at! It's exciting," says Letterman, and with Eichner in command it's hard not to believe him.

OXD favorite Kiesza appeared on Letterman Thursday, bringing some no-joke choreography to the Late Show stage.

The Canadian pop singer is best known for her international hit "Hideaway," whose single-take music video has gone viral.

On Letterman, Kiesza brought the video's choreography alive onstage. The often-prickly Letterman seemed genuinely impressed, flashing a big grin when he came onstage at the song's end.

If you're into old school diva anthems, "Hideaway" will probably float your boat — think a 2014 update on 90s house classic "Show Me Love" by Robin S.

Continuing to take the nation by storm, British singer-songwriter Sam Smith appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night for a performance of his single "Stay with Me".

Forecasters say that Smith's new album In the Lonely Hour could sell more than 150,000 albums this week, probably not enough to top Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence, but a huge debut nonetheless.
