James Corden has hosted a number of famous guests on his much-loved Carpool Karaoke series, but he’s never had someone quite as famous as First Lady Michelle Obama. Tuesday, Corden released the trailer for Ms. Obama’s appearance on the segment, and from the looks of it, it’s going to be a ton of fun.
The one-minute trailer finds Corden pulling up to the White House for what is ostensibly a tour, only to find that his guide is none other than the First Lady herself. She opens up about life in the White House, noting that it’s been seven and a half years since she last sat in the front seat of a car listening to music. The only exception, she says, was a few months ago “with my daughter who learned to drive.” Of course, the teaser with the First Lady comes just hours after Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, plagiarized parts of a 2008 Michelle Obama speech during the first night of the RNC, which makes this all the much better.
Soon after their conversation, the trailer cuts to Corden and Obama doing a coordinated dance to Beyoncé’s classic “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).” They even have the hand movements perfected. The entire thing seems like a good time, and we can’t wait to see the full version of it tomorrow.
Corden’s Carpool Karaoke has been a big hit for the late-night host. Adele’s appearance on it racked up over 100 million views on YouTube, and other stars like Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, Jennifer Lopez, Sia, and Gwen Stefani have also attracted tens of millions of views. It seems like Michelle Obama’s appearance might be destined for the same fate. Check back here tomorrow to see the full segment, and watch the trailer in the video above.
