INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — If you watched "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Tuesday night, you saw former First Lady Michelle Obama.

The pair had a little fun surprising people on the elevator who were taking a tour of 30 Rock, including a group of women from Indiana. One of those women was Frances Johnson of Indianapolis.

Johnson and her three sorority sisters tried to get tickets for the Tonight Show, but they were already gone. So they were given a tour instead when they got hit with the big surprise.

"It was really quick, but we were all jumping up and down. Jimmy Fallon, he was as excited as we were, I think, because he loved our reaction to him and Michelle Obama," Johnson said.

She said afterwards, they went back to the hotel to have a mini-watch party of their appearance. Many people have asked them why they didn't get out of the elevator.

"What I didn't realize is there was a Secret Service (agent) right by me with his arm extended out, he was holding me in," Johnson said.
