First Lady Michelle Obama is riding in the front passenger seat!
For the first time in about seven and a half years, FLOTUS sits up front for a very special segment of Carpool Karaoke, which comes as a surprise to host James Corden. The Late Late Show released a teaser for the upcoming segment, set to air Wednesday, and in it Corden drives to the White House for a tour.
Unbeknownst to the British talk show host, Obama had some free time so she decided to surprise him by getting in the car.
“Hey there! I hear you’re here for a 1:45 tour, and I had a little time on my hands, so you wanna go for a spin?” Obama asks to Corden, who stares agape at the First Lady.
Obama asks if they can turn on some tunes because she “rarely” gets to listen to music in the car. Corden happily obliges and first turns on “Get Your Freak On” by Missy Elliott.
Obama explains how she hasn’t really been able to “rock out” in a car since her daughter learned to drive and they got into the car together, so she was happy to be given the opportunity to just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Before the teaser ends, however, it cuts to Corden and FLOTUS singing Beyoncé ‘s “Single Ladies” and even doing her famous hand moves. With so much awesome footage already, we can only imagine what’s to come in the full Carpool Karaoke segment!
Previous guests include Demi Lovato , One Direction , Justin Bieber , Mariah Carey , Gwen Stefani , Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder and Jason Derulo, so the First Lady will be joining one legendary lineup.
