First Lady Michelle Obama went on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Friday and showed off her dancing skills. Appearing on the show to promote her fitness initiative “Let’s Move,” the first lady demonstrated an uncanny ability to make the lamest dance moves look cool. Jimmy Fallon put on a soccer-mom wig and danced alongside Obama to “the sprinkler,” “go shopping, get groceries,” “raise the roof,” and “happy snapper,” to name a few.
In her first appearance on the NBC show, Obama joked she was considering a career in television. Fallon asked the first lady what her plans were for 2016, and urged her to consider running alongside Hillary Clinton. “I've said it here first—Dream Team, Michelle and Hillary '16. What do you think?” Fallon asked, according to the Associated Press. "You know, I have my eye actually on another job," the first lady replied. "And I hear that when Jay Leno retires that The Tonight Show position is going to open and I'm thinking about putting my hat in the ring.”
