Cape Town - Barack Obama made a surprise appearance on television on Tuesday when he performed on the "Slow Jam the News" segment of the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon show, reports the Huffington Post.

The United States president received a standing ovation when the host announced his presence on the show.

When he entered the stage he said: "I'm President Barack Obama, and I, too, want to slow jam the news."

The president used the karaoke-like performance to speak out against rising student fees at university level.

"Now is not the time to make school more expensive for our young people."

"There's some in Congress who disagree. They say keeping the interest rate low isn't a way to help our students.
 
"They say we should be doing everything we can to pay down the national debt - well, as long as it doesn't include taxing billionaires," he said.

The Roots as well as Jimmy Fallon were on stage with the president. In their verse, the hip hop group also made a crack about new couple Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
