Watch Michelle Obama join James Corden for Carpool Karaoke

US First Lady Michelle Obama joined comedian and television star James Cordon for Wednesday night’s episode of Carpool Karaoke on The Late Late Show.

Although her security detail limited the drive to the White House compound, Mrs Obama rode shotgun as she sang along to hits by Beyonce and Stevie Wonder with the British host.

Singer, Missy Elliott, joined the ride for the song “This Is For My Girls”, which is promoting Mrs Obama’s Let Girls Learn initiative that supports girls’ education worldwide.

The First Lady also rapped along to Missy Elliott’s 2001 hit, “Get Ur Freak On” and the First Lady confessed she had only ridden in the passenger’s seat of a car once in the last seven years.

Previous guests who have joined the League of Their Own and Gavin and Stacey star’s Karaoke segment have included Adele, Sir Rod Stewart, Sir Elton John, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and One Direction.
