“Michelle Obama will ride with @JKCorden on tomorrow’s #CarpoolKaraoke! http://share.ew.com/awZ8uEl”
A promotional video of Obama’s appearance was posted to YouTube by the Late Late Show.
People Magazine gushed about the show:
“I rarely get to listen to music in the car,” Obama tells Corden in a preview clip released late Monday. “I’ve been in a car – maybe it was months ago – with my daughter, learning to drive. That was the only time in seven and a half years that I’ve been in the passenger’s seat listening to music, rocking out like this.”
And rock out she will! The 52-year-old will be jamming out to Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On” and Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” – even dancing along to the latter’s iconic dance.
