Oprah Crashes An 'OWN Show' Interview (VIDEO)

We've seen Oprah have plenty of surprise guests over the years, but on a recent airing of the new web series "OWN Show," she was the one who dropped in unexpectedly.

"Master Class" Executive Producer Jon Sinclair had Skyped in from Chicago's Harpo Studios to join "OWN Show" host Ami Desai and discuss Justin Timberlake's appearance on the upcoming season premiere of "Master Class." Sinclair was in the middle of explaining what qualifies the 33-year-old Timberlake as a "master" when he seemed to get distracted by something off camera. "This is funny," he says. "I think we have a special guest."

Suddenly, Oprah comes into frame. "Hello!" she says, taking a seat on the couch next to Sinclair.

"This is Ami," Sinclair says, introducing the host. "We're talking about 'Master Class.'"

"I heard you were," Oprah says to Sinclair. "I called you and they said you were here.'"

Desai quickly recovers from her shock and continues asking the two about Timberlake, one of the younger "Master Class" guests. Oprah echoes Sinclair's explanation for why Timberlake embodies a "master."

"One of the reasons why we thought he would be a good master, and he proved to be one, is because his level of self-perception, self-awareness and actualizing that is so keen that he's not just traveling through his life as a superstar," Oprah says. "He's a real artist who is thoughtful about his place in the world and what it took for him to get there."

Also during the interview, Oprah reveals which other Grammy-winning artist she'd love to see on the next season of "Master Class" and explains why she was originally looking for Sinclair before crashing the interview.

"Oprah's Master Class" premieres with Justin Timberlake on Sunday, May 11, at 10 p.m. ET on OWN.
