America's First Lady was joined on the TV show by members of 'So You Think You Can Dance'
America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama has appeared on US TV’s ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ dancing to Mark Ronson‘s hit ‘Uptown Funk’.
British producer Ronson released the single in November 2014, recently reaching the one million sales landmark in the UK. Ronson is also reportedly earning $100,000 (£65,000) per week through Spotify streams of the track alone.
The producer and the track’s guest vocalist Bruno Mars appeared on ‘Ellen’ themselves in January, involving the entire audience in their performance. Now, Michelle Obama has danced along to the song on the show with a dance group.
Michelle Obama was on ‘Ellen’ promoting the 5 year anniversary of her ‘Let’s Move’ health and fitness campaign, being joined for ‘Uptown Funk’ by members of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’. Watch below.
During his recent address at the Oxford Union, the rapper said the President “calls the home phone”.
However, appearing on chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week (March 12), Obama said he did not think he had the musician’s phone number. “I’ve met Kanye twice,” he said. “The first time when I was a senator, and he was with his mom. He had just gotten big and he’s from Chicago… He was very soft spoken, very gracious.”
He added: “Then, about six months ago, he came to an event. Look, I love his music, he’s incredibly creative, but I don’t think I have his home number.”
