Will.i.am's Sunday appearance on "Meet the Press" had some viewers scratching their heads.

The artist joined the show's roundtable discussion with host David Gregory, and spoke as an Obama supporter and a philanthropist. He weighed in on the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, the public's frustration with Washington, D.C. and education. His appearance got some positive feedback from viewers, while others were very confused as to why he was there to begin with. The move drew scrutiny on Twitter for the show, which has fallen to third place in the ratings behind CBS News' "Face the Nation" and ABC News' "This Week":

CORRECTION: Will.i.am did not comment during the panel's discussion of Benghazi.
