Michelle Obama Gets 'Funk'-y on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (VIDEO)

Don’t believe her, just watch!
When First Lady Michelle Obama visits The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, she’s bringing some serious dance skills.
In celebration of the fifth anniversary of her Let’s Move initiative, Obama, 51, has enlisted several So You Think You Can Dance favorites to pull together a choreographed group routine that will be performed on the White House lawn at this year’s Easter Egg Roll.
Obama – who has been challenging celebrities including Beyoncé, Ryan Seacrest, Nick Jonas, Michael Strahan and Hugh Jackman with her Gimme Five campaign – invited Ellen DeGeneres to preview the dance to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘s “Uptown Funk.”
“Your people said you’ve been practicing for a year,” teased DeGeneres, 57, before they traded gentle trash talk about their 2012 push-up competition – all of which was just a warm-up for what turned out to be quite an elaborate set of moves.
Oh, and as Obama noted, “There is some hip-thrusting.”
When Obama leaves the White House in January 2017, she should strongly consider at least a moonlighting gig in the dance world.
