Michelle Obama is just days away from a two-day national tour celebrating the third anniversary of her “Let’s Move!” anti-child obesity initiative. So to get things rolling, the First Lady dropped in on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Friday night with hilarious results.
It was quite the double act.
In a skit called the “Evolution of Mom Dancing,” Fallon debuted his best mom-drag outfit consisting of white cut-offs, a pink cardigan, and white sneakers, while Michelle sported recently cut bangs, jeans, pink pumps, and a turquoise cardigan.
Showing off an array of moves such as “Go Shopping, Get Groceries” dance, the “Dougie,” “Hip Bump,” “Sprinkler,” “Oh My God, I Love This Song,” and even the “Just the Hands Part of Single Ladies,” the pair cut a rug in a series of moves that would put any disco-dad to shame.
The “Evolution of Mom Dancing” clip showcased the first lady’s graduation from awkward side shuffling to some serious shaking and has now, rather inevitably gone viral, The Guardian reports.
“That was so much fun,” a flushed First Lady told Fallon after the dance-off, before adding, “You’re a beautiful mom. Pretty hot.”
Asked if she thought husband Barack was a good dancer, Michelle replied:
“You know, I give him a B. His dancing is right here in the pocket. He’s got like three good moves. But they’re all right here,” she said, while dancing with her hands on her hips.
According to Us Magazine, Fallon also got in a sneaky question asking Michelle if she was tempted by a Michelle-Hillary all-female ticket for the presidency in 2016.
Sweetly sidestepping, the mother-of-two quipped back:
“You know, I have my eye actually on another job. And I hear that when Jay Leno retires that The Tonight Show position is going to open and I’m thinking about putting my hat in the ring.”
Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” tour kicks off on February 27 and will take in stops including Clinton, MS., Chicago, IL., and Springfield, MO.
She will slated to appear in a segment with Robin Roberts that will air on Good Morning America on Tuesday, February 26, as well as an episode of The Dr. Oz Show alongside Education Secretary Arne Duncan, which will air on Thursday, February 28.
A major announcement is expected in TheDr. Oz show about the “Lets Move!” program.
