Justin Timberlake has described US President Barack Obama as the "coolest guy" he's ever met.

The 'Mirrors' singer says performing at the White House earlier this year was an incredible experience, especially when Obama arrived halfway through his soundcheck.

"Man, he's the coolest guy I've ever met," Justin revealed to Jay Leno during the Tonight Show in the US this week. "Let me just say that.

"We rehearsed and he had some meeting out of stage, I felt weird, like I'm in his house, this is where he lives, and he's not there!" Justin recalled. "But he shows up in the helicopter and the helicopter lands and the things rolls out and he gets off and it's like.

"The camera operators, the producers, everybody who was rehearsing, we all stopped to watch President Obama and he struts off the thing and it was like dead silent," Justin revealed. "And I looked at everybody and I said, 'Uh, Daddy's home!'"
