As reporter earlier, the Whitehouse and Jimmy Fallon announced that President Obama will appear for the first time on the said show, to be taped on the campus at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

On the first part of the show, Fallon mention that the US president has recently asked the Congress to stop the interest rate on Stafford student loans from rising this summer, telling The Roots singer Tariq that the news does not need a joke.

“That’s right I want to slow jam the news. And I’m not the only one!” Fallon tells Tariq, as the curtain opened and President Obama appeared and the two gentlemen shook hands, as the crowd cheered and gave him a standing ovation.

“I’m President Barack Obama. And I too want to slow jam the news!” Mr. Obama told the cheering crowd and the 37-year old show host gave him a microphone and asked him to help him deliver the news, as the band performed short background music.

After President Obama and Jimmy Fallon delivered the news, there was a short commercial break and The Roots introduced Mr. Obama again with a few notes of “Let’s Stay Together,” the 1972 Al Green tune that the president sang a few lines at the Apollo Theater in Harlem last January.

Later, Jimmy Fallon interviewed President Obama and they talked about recently controversial news including the latest issue with the Secret Service, and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney; and even took some questions via Twitter read by Fallon.
