According to Us Magazine, the slow jam news session began in 2012, at the end of Obama's first term in office as a US president.

The second edition is to mark the end of his administration as the current leader of the country.

Introducing Obama to the stage, Fallon said, "President Obama stimulated long-term growth,”

"In 2008, the country wasn’t feeling in the mood. It was too tired, stressed, said it had a headache. Barack lit some candles and got some silky satin sheets. Told the American people, ‘Yes, we can.’"
