Virtual pop star Hatsune Miku will make her U.S. television debut tonight with an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The Vocaloid-powered singer will perform, in hologram form, at the show's Ed Sullivan Theater in New York.

Hatsune Miku's appearance on late night television comes the day before an art exhibit dedicated to the synthesized singer opens in New York City. Titled "Universal Positivity," the art show features works from original Hatsune Miku illustrators, toys, apparel and other merchandise, as well as projected videos and performances by Miku and her band. Miku will appear at live performances in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre on Oct. 11 and 12 and in New York at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Oct. 17 and 18.

The Late Show with David Letterman airs on CBS at 11:35 pm ET.

Later this year, Sega will release Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f 2nd in North America. Crypton Future Media's rhythm game will hit PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on Nov. 18 with localized English-language lyrics. In 2015, Hatsune Miku comes to Nintendo 3DS with Project MIRAI Remix.
