Watch Michelle Obama Get Down to 'Uptown Funk' With Ellen DeGeneres

Mar 13, 2015

A preview clip released Thursday for an upcoming episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show shows Michelle Obama and the comedian dancing to "Uptown Funk," the Mark Ronson song featuring Bruno Mars that has become a very popular tune to spoof on the Internet. The dance party starts at the 3:13 mark in the clip above.

In fact, the First Lady was so excited to start dancing that her mic fell off. "Is it going to stay? Because there is some hip-thrusting, so. There's a lot of it, so..."

The dance-off was prompted by Obama’s “#GimmeFive” challenge, which celebrates the fifth anniversary of the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign to raise awareness about active, healthy living and combat obesity in the United States.

The full episode premieres March 16. So far, it does not look like the First Lady's appearance ends in a push-up contest like that one time.
