Kanye West surprised fans last night (September 9) with an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Even the show’s host was surprised by West’s last minute booking.

Kanye performed his song, “Bound 2″ off Yeezus with a little help from singer, Charlie Wilson, The Roots and a young doo-wop choir, who adorably hammed it up for the cameras.

A leather chaps-wearing Yeezy kept things laid back, pacing the stage as he flipped off lines like, “Hey, you remember where we first met?/ Okay, I don’t remember where we first met/ But hey, admitting is the first step/ And hey, you know ain’t nobody perfect.”

It was a stark contrast to his most recent performance on the MTV Video Music Awards. There he performed “Blood On The Leaves,” shrouded in almost complete darkness, letting his shadow do most of the work.

Kanye is gearing up for his first solo tour in almost five years. The trek–featuring Kendrick Lamar as the opening act–kicks off on October 19 in Seattle, WA.
