- Michelle Obama joins James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke
- She sang Stevie Wonder, Beyonce and Missy Elliot hits including her own advocacy anthem ‘This is for my Girls’
- The First Lady said that when they leave, she will miss the people who have served them during their 7-year stay in the White House
Singer and host James Corden’s famous “Carpool Karaoke” has graced the vicinity of the White House. And guess who’s his next special guest to sit on the passenger’s seat?
Well, it’s no other than the United States First Lady herself – Michelle Obama.
The 52-year-old wife of US President Barack Obama had her game face on as she sang and dance with James while he goes around the White House Complex.
The segment started with a warming up chit chat between James and Michelle where the First Lady already showed her fun side.
As James drove around, Michelle pointed where the President’s office is and quipped: “My husband is in there somewhere. He better be, that’s where he said he was.”
The two then started listening to music. The first song? Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours”. And as it turns out, Wonder is the First Lady’s favorite artist.
“I know every Stevie song there is in the planet,” she told James.
After belting a Stevie, Michelle and James partied inside the car with Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”. Again, Michelle proved she can groove – even when sitting in a car.
James and Michelle also sang the First Lady’s advocacy anthem “This is for my Girls” when rapper Missy Elliot suddenly pulled a cameo appearance. The song was released on iTunes last May.
Of course, they did not miss the chance to sing together with Missy, her iconic hit “Get Your Freak On”.
In the middle of the interview, James asked Michelle what she’ll miss about living in the White House.
The First Lady answered: “I’m gonna miss the people. It’s the people you see every single day. They help you, they love you. You know their families, you know, to walk away from people you see every single day that’s gonna be hard.”
Asked if she will be missing “24/7 room service”, Michelle said: “The freedom you get in exchange of the privileges and the luxuries – you know seven and a half years is enough you know I can make my own grilled cheese sandwich.”
