Renaissance is in the carpool karaoke! On Wednesday's The Late Late Show with James Corden, James Corden was joined by the First Lady aka Michelle Obama aka Secret Service code name Renaissance. And the latest edition of his late-night segment was action-packed with a killer playlist that included Stevie Wonder and Beyoncé's "Single Ladies."
Together the First lady and the late-night host drove around the grounds of the White House in Washington, D.C. When Queen Bey came up on the radio it confirmed that the First Lady not only knows every single lyric to Beyoncé's girl power anthem... but also the choreography. "We were making honey to put in our lemonade," she joked.
With the Obamas set to move out of the White House in the coming months, FLOTUS reflected on living in the legendary home. "I'm gonna miss the people. These are people that you see every single day. They help you. They love you, you know their families. To walk away from people you see every single day that's going to be hard," she shared, but she noted "the freedom" her family will get by being slightly removed from the public eye is enough. She also dropped a hint of her late-night snack preference of choice: "I can make a grilled cheese sandwich," she explained. "I can make a mean grilled cheese sandwich."
Speaking of Renaissance, Mrs. Obama explained how she ended up with that interesting alias. "We're all Rs," she said of the family's Secret Service code names. "I'm Renaissance. Barack is Renegade. For me, they just came up with it and said, 'Do you like it?' and I was like, 'Yeah, whatever.'"
As if watching the First Lady rock out to Beyoncé wasn't enough of a treat, she was joined by the one and only Missy Elliott, who recorded the song "This Is For My Girls" to promote the First Lady's Let Girls Learn campaign earlier this year. Did we forget to mention that the trio definitely jammed to Missy's "Get Ur Freak On"? "We got our squad, our girl power squad. We're talking about education... all over the world," Mrs. Obama said of her friendship with the legendary rapper.
