President Barack Obama might be buddies with Jimmy Fallon, but The Late Late Show host James Corden has made friends with First Lady Michelle Obama. The British comedian recruited Michelle Obama for the latest segment of “Carpool Karaoke.”
In the segment, which runs just over 14 minutes, Corden takes Michelle Obama around the White House grounds. That’s reminiscent of the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode with Jerry Seinfeld from last year, where the comedian was only allowed to drive Obama around the White House grounds. They were not allowed to go out into the streets of Washington, D.C.
The segment starts with Corden pretending that he’s been allowed to drive all the way up the White House gates to take a tour when Michelle Obama steps in. They then begin singing Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Words,” since Wonder is Michelle Obama’s favorite artist.
Michelle Obama said that she’ll miss the people at the White House that she saw every day when the Obamas leave. The clip also gives you an opportunity to see the First Lady sing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” Also, there’s a surprise guest who pops in at the end.
This was the first new “Carpool Karaoke” segment since the June 20 episode with singer Selena Gomez.
