Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon and writer Chris Tartaro are ... "The Chickeneers. " Things got a little egg-centric on the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" set Thursday when "The Voice" judge, "Parks & Rec" star, late-night host and TV writer performed their rendition of "Ho Hey!" by Grammy-nominated band the Lumineers. Dressed as chickens. Clucking their way through the whole song. No words, just clucks. Bock , bock and everything. The quartet was costumed as bright yellow fowl, a la Big Bird, and delivered a nearly straight-faced performance of the hit song in celebration of Easter this Sunday.

Jimmy Fallon is used to welcoming guests to “Late Night,” but this week he's been hitting the talk-show circuit to promote “Guys With Kids,” the new sitcom he produced. On Thursday he paid a visit to “The Late Show,” where he and David Letterman, the very first host of “Late Night,” talked shop. Although his dislike of Fallon's NBC colleague, Jay Leno, is legendary, Letterman frequently welcomes other late-night personalities to his show and is rarely anything but gracious (except, of course, when the subject of Leno comes up)

As Times pop music critic Randall Roberts wrote in a recent profile , Earl Sweatshirt is building a complicated relationship with fame -- even as his upcoming major-label debut promises (or threatens) to bring it closer. The L.A.-based rapper -- part of the Odd Future collective that's also given us Frank Ocean and Tyler, the Creator -- takes a hard look at that relationship in his song "Burgundy," which he performed Friday on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. " "My grandma's passing, but I'm too busy trying to get this stinking album cracking to see her," he raps over the Roots' instrumental backing, "My priorities messed up, I know it / I'm afraid I'm gonna blow it. " PHOTOS: Concerts by The Times If that weren't clear enough, notice that he spends the first third of the three-minute performance offstage (and the rest of it nearly swallowed up by his oversized hoodie)

Alternately serious and silly, President Obama weighed in on the ongoing Secret Service scandal and even "slow jammed" the news as he taped an appearance on NBC's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday. Obama, already the first sitting president to appear on "The Tonight Show," "The Late Show" and "The Daily Show," treaded even deeper into the overnight hours as part of his two-day, three-state tour of college campuses to press his case to extend lower interest rates for some student loan programs.
