Michelle Obama On Carpool Karaoke with James Corden; Missy Elliot Joins Carpool Karaoke? [VIDEO]By Sarah T., UniversityHerald Reporter
It seems that talk show host of "The Late Late Show" and comedian James Corden can scratch one more thing off the bucket list.
ABC reported that in a very rare chance, Corden was able to have the First Lady of The United States of America to join him in one of his show's segment. The First Lady, Michelle Obama joined Corden in a segment called, "Carpool Karaoke."
The segment started with Corden rolling up the gates of the White House. Hirality ensues as he was being questioned by the gate guard, and his reaction was that of a suspicious person - stammering, and sweating profusely. After a few funny moment, Corden was let into one of the most secure locations on Earth. He drove a bit further, and stopped to pick up one of the most influential woman in the world.
Mrs. Obama entered the Cordens car, then they both acknowledge that what they're doing is the 1:45 tour of the White House grounds, saying she had a little time on her hands and would be happy to join Corden, and after a few casual talks, Corden turns on the car stereo and the carpool karaoke begins.
They started off singing to one of the First Lady's favorite songs, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" by Stevie Wonder, and Mrs. Obama's vocal chops were right on the money. After the song Corden asked what she would be missing the most when her husbands term in office is over, to which Michelle replied that the people is what she's going to miss the most.
The next song they tackled was a song by the Queen B, Beyonce's mega hit, "Single Laides." After having fun with singing along with the track, Corden began asking about the secret service codes. The secret service codenames for her is Renaissance while the President's is Renegade. Corden the asked what would be his secret service codename, suggesting either "Papa Smurf" or "Tiramisu."
They suddenly stopped to pick-up an extra passenger - Award Winning Rap Arttist, Missy Elliot. And sang with them on another Beyonce track "For my Girls." A report by Billboard says that it was done for Michelle's charity, which promotes education all-over the world.
Corden then suggest that they take it back, alluding to Missy's 2001 hit, "Get Ur Freak On." It seems like the First Lady has some mad rapping skills, and can hold her own with Missy Elliot, and Corden.
