Carpool Karaoke is taking the White House!

Last month Michelle Obama used her brand new Snapchat account to tease an upcoming appearance on The Late Late Show – and now the big day is almost here!

The First Lady and James Corden will take their song-filled ride on this Wednesday’s episode, killing time with the speechless 37-year-old late night host before his tour of the White House.

“I rarely get to listen to music in the car,” Obama tells Corden in a preview clip released late Monday. “I’ve been in a car – maybe it was months ago – with my daughter, learning to drive. That was the only time in seven and a half years that I’ve been in the passenger’s seat listening to music, rocking out like this.”

And rock out she will! The 52-year-old will be jamming out to Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On” and Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies” – even dancing along to the latter’s iconic dance.

In another preview released to AOL’s MAKERS.com the First Lady and Corden sing “This Is For My Girls,” – the girl power anthem inspired by the Let Girls Learn initiative and the 62 million girls around the world who do not have access to education. Penned by the legendary songwriter Diane Warren, the recorded version features vocals from Kelly Clarkson, Zendaya, Janelle Monée, Kelly Rowland, Lea Michelle, and more pop luminaries.

(“This Is For My Girls” can be downloaded on iTunes).

Obama’s full The Late Late Show with James Corden segment will air on CBS Wednesday.
