Michelle Obama Channels Beyoncé During Carpool Karaoke with James Corden
First Lady Michelle Obama is the latest celebrity to join James Corden for a round of Carpool Karaoke.
In a preview clip ahead of tomorrow night’s episode (July 19, 2016), Corden drives up to the White House and says he’s there for a tour when all of a sudden the First Lady hops into his passenger seat. An open-mouthed Corden is shocked as Obama buckles herself in and tells him she heard he was taking a tour and had some free time, “so, do you want to go for a spin?” she asks.
Before getting into some hardcore karaoke, Obama admits that she rarely gets to listen to music in the car and reveals that in all seven years as the First Lady, she’s only done it once. “Maybe it was months ago with my daughter who learned to drive. That was the only time in seven and a half years that I’ve been in the passenger seat, listened to music, rocking out like this,” she confesses as Missy Elliot’s “Get Ur Freak On” plays in the background.
Even though it may have been a few years, the First Lady jumps right back in and channels Beyoncé with a pitch perfect rendition of “Single Ladies,” choreography and all.
