Nick Cannon may have only just started his freshman year at Howard University, but he’s already scoring major points with his classmates.
The America's Got Talent host took the stage in the school's auditorium on Thursday to address the class of 2020, but he wasn't alone. Cannon was also joined by Late Night host Seth Meyers -- and Michelle Obama.
The first lady was greeted with a standing ovation from Howard students, before she, Cannon and Meyers answered a few questions. Obama also shared a few words of wisdom with the university's freshmen: "Don't rush to be ballin'," she told the crowd. "Grow into your lifestyle."
Cannon, too, seems to have walked away with a little FLOTUS advice.
"So at School today @sethmeyers and the First Lady @michelleobama came to check on me! Why does it look like FLOTUS is saying, 'Boy, I know you better not be up at this school acting a fool!' LOL," he posted to Instagram, along with a shot of himself on stage with Obama and Meyers.
While Cannon joked about "acting a fool," the AGT host assured ET that he's taking his studies very seriously.
"It's something I've always wanted to do, and I truly feel like it's the next stage in my life," Cannon said. "Entertainment is outstanding, but I truly want to utilize my voice, I want to be a part of a community, and I'm always encouraging young people and being an advocate for education, so I need to make sure I get mine first."
"I'm not just going to start, or stop in 2020," Cannon said. "I'm going all the way to get [my] PhD."
