Madonna will be the musical guest on Thursday night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which will feature President Barack Obama. This marks the first appearance for The Commander In Chief on the late show.

The singer made headlines earlier this year when she paid tribute to Prince at the 2016 Billboard Awards. The performance was widely contested due to the fact that she only artist scheduled to pay homage to the late musical legend.

As she closed the ceremony with her homage to The Purple One, BET posted a video shading the singer in a now-deleted tweet with the words “Yeah we saw that. Don’t worry. We got you.”

While President Obama has appeared on a string of talk shows including Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Show with David Letterman, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report, Thursday night will be the first time he appears as Jimmy Fallon’s guest. Even First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on the SNL alum’s show in a series of comedic sketches.

Madonna herself had previously appeared on the show last year, where she performed her single “Bitch I’m Madonna” while “[fulfilling] her dream of performing stand-up comedy.”

“Where else besides The Tonight Show and New York City can you have the President and the Queen on one show?” said Fallon.

Aww….You guys are so sweet. See you soon xoxo! 🇺🇸 @jimmyfallon
