First Lady Michelle Obama hopped in the car with James Corden for a Wednesday night edition of “Carpool Karaoke.”

“I rarely get to listen to music in my car,” Obama tells the affable host, asking him to “crank it up” when Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” comes on.

The pair engage in the signature moves to accompany Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and later in the segment, Missy Elliott hops in for a few verses of “This is for My Girls,” the song written by Diane Warren and featuring Elliott, Kelly Clarkson, Janelle Monae and others to promote education for girls worldwide.

“We feel blessed to have Missy on this song,” the First Lady says before the trio gets its freak on.

This might be the first time Corden has entertained a guest who really does sing like the rest of us when cruising in our cars – and it’s a delight.
