Was the heated Kanye West/Jimmy Kimmel feud all an elaborate set-up? News that Yeezy will be a guest on tomorrow's Jimmy Kimmel Live makes us wonder if the ALL CAPS Twitter battle between the rapper and the late-night host was just a joke, or if West is just trying to save face after being on the losing side of that battle.

ABC's brief press release merely read: "On Wednesday evening, Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Kanye West to Jimmy Kimmel Live."

If it's somehow not a gag (Kimmel insisted via Twitter that it it's not) this could make for some very colorful TV. (Twitter, brace for impact.)
