Madonna will offer a musical interlude to Jimmy Fallon's political episode Thursday night. 

The artist is set to perform on Thursday's Tonight Show, which will feature the first-ever appearance by President Barack Obama. She last appeared on the show in April 2015 to perform "Bitch I'm Madonna" with an elaborate dance routine after performing "Holiday" with classroom instruments and trying her hand at stand-up comedy. 

Madonna recently performed a tribute to Prince, singing “Nothing Compares 2 U" and “Purple Rain,” at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. 

"Where else besides The Tonight Show and New York City can you have the president and the queen on one show?" said Jimmy Fallon in a statement. 

During his term, Obama has made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, David Letterman's Late Show, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, but has yet to visit Fallon on his Tonight Show. First Lady Michelle Obama has also joined Fallon for several sketches on the late-night show, including the "Evolution of Mom Dancing."
