Michelle Obama Does Carpool Karoake With James Corden and Missy Elliott
Posted on July 21, 2016
President Obama took a ride with Jerry Seinfeld on an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee so we suppose it's only natural that First Lady Michelle Obama joined James Corden for a round of Carpool Karaoke. James drove up to the White House gates for a tour, but the guard hassled him and had him divert to a side drive. At that point Mrs. Obama hopped in the car and said she was there to take him on the 1:55 tour.Mrs. Obama said she never gets to listen to music in the car what will she miss and what will she "accidentally" slip in her bag. Mrs. Obama laughed and told James not to steal anything. She said she will miss all the people, the staff. She admitted that 24 hour room service is nice, but the freedom she will gain will be worth it. She also discussed her Secret Service code name (Renaissance) and James wanted to choose a code name for himself. He wants to be Tiramisu.
Mrs. Obama did the bit to promote her charity endeavor, Let Girls Learn which promotes education for girls around the world. They sang Stevie Wonder's "Signed Seal Deliver" and Beyonce's "Single Ladies" and even broke out some Beyonce choreography. The two were joined by surprise guest Missy Elliott who popped in to the back to sing "This Is For My Girls" and "Get Your Freak On." They edited the part where they picked up Missy, so it looks like she just kind of beamed into the back seat. The whole thing was just really upbeat and fun. As for the timing of the lighthearted sketch: make of that what you will. Take a look:
