Thanks to a small minority of people who care about children, Stephen has to sing Rebecca Black's "Friday" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." (3:24)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK,

EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU.

NATION, BEFORE WE GO ANY FURTHER

TONIGHT, I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE

LATEST, THE VERY LATEST ON THE

KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT FRIENDSHIP

BETWEEN ME AND JIMMY FALLON.

[LAUGHTER]

AFTER THE AUCTION OF MY PORTRAIT

RAISED $26,000 FOR ARTS

EDUCATION AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS

THROUGH DONORSCHOOSE.ORG I MADE

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

I AM HAPPY AND THRILLED TO

REPORT THAT MY BEST FRIEND FOR

SIX MONTHS, JIMMY FALLON, WILL

BE MATCHING THAT $26,000 TO

DONORSCHOOSE.ORG.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WHICH THEN LED MY BFF FOR SIX

MONTHS JIMMY TO MAKE THIS

ANNOUNCEMENT.

>> HERE IS THE THING: I NEVER

SAID THAT.

IF WE CAN RAISE $26,000 BY THIS

FRIDAY, I'LL PROMISE THAT MY BFF

FOR SIX MONTHS, STEPHEN COLBERT

WILL COME ON THIS SHOW AND SING

FRIDAY WITH THE ROOTS.

>> Stephen: HERE IS THE THING:

I NEVER SAID THAT.

I'M SHOCKED.

I'M SHOCKED.

IT IS ONE THING FOR ME TO PLEDGE

HUGE SUMS OF HIS MONEY WITHOUT

ASKING BUT HIM TELLING PEOPLE

THAT I PROMISED TO SING WHEN I

DIDN'T?

WHAT DOES HE THINK I AM?

MADE OF MUSIC?

I'M A MAN OF JIMMY'S WORD SO I

AGREED TO SING THIS SONG IF THEY

RAISE $26,000 BY FRIDAY.

WHEN I WATCHED JIMMY LAST NIGHT,

THINGS WERE LOOKING GOOD.

>> AS OF TONIGHT I'M HAPPY TO

SAY WE'RE AT $10,326.

WE'RE ALMOST THERE, PEOPLE!

>> Stephen: WAIT, WAIT, DID HE

SAY ALMOST THERE?

SORRY, JIMMY, LESS THAN HALFWAY

IS NOT ALMOST THERE.

I LEARNED THAT WHEN I TRIED TO

EXPLAIN TO THE MANAGER OF MY GYM

THAT MY SHORTS ALMOST COVERED MY

BUTT.

[LAUGHTER]

NOW JUST TO MAKE EXTRA SURE THIS

FUND-RAISING WOULD NEVER HAPPEN,

I CALLED YOU ON THE COLBERT

NATION TO STAY AWAY FROM

DONORSCHOOSE.ORG/FALLONCHOOSE

PROJECT.

I HAVE TO SAY YOU REALLY

DISAPPOINTED ME BECAUSE AFTER

ONLY THREE HOURS AFTER

YESTERDAY'S SHOW JIMMY AND I'S

DONORS CHOOSE PAGE HAD RAISED

$26,043.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

I KNOW.

I AM JUST AS OUTRAGE AS YOU ARE.

IT'S TO NOT YOUR FAULT.

THOSE WHO DIDN'T DONATE, YOU ARE

THE TRUE HEROS.

NOW I HAVE TO SING THIS FRIDAY

THING ON JIMMY'S SHOW.

REMIND ME WHAT THE SONG IS

AGAIN.

♪ FRIDAY, FRIDAY ♪

THAT'S ENOUGH, THAT'S ENOUGH.

I GOT IT.

THANK YOU.

DAMMIT.

[LAUGHTER]

I'VE GOT TO PRACTICE IF I'M

GOING TO PULL THIS THING OFF.

♪ MONDAY ♪

♪ TUUUUU -- TUESDAYS ♪

W, WE EEEEEEN -- WEDNESDAY ♪
