Michelle Obama has only a couple of weeks left as FLOTUS as her husband's second term as President of the United States comes to an end on January 20. Now, she has officially booked her last talk show appearance before the conclusion of her tenure as First Lady, and Mrs. Obama will appear one last time on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The Tonight Show has hosted Michelle Obama twice already over the past eight years, and her third and final stop as First Lady will take place on Wednesday, January 11. She brought the laughs in a big way for both of her previous visits, so we can bet that this third trip to The Tonight Show will be a fun way for viewers to say farewell to her as First Lady.
The First Lady first appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon in 2014, when she took part in an "Ew!" sketch with fellow guest Will Ferrell and the affable host. She managed to keep up with both comedians well enough, and the clip has been viewed more than 16 million - yes, million - times on YouTube. Her second appearance on The Tonight Show came in 2015, when she joined Fallon for "The Evolution of Mom Dancing, Part 2" as an unexpectedly hilarious part of her "Let's Move" campaign. For a blast from the past, take a look at the First Lady busting her mom moves with Fallon:
Michelle Obama will be the third major member of the Obama administration to appear on The Tonight Show over the past year. President Obama himself turned up to "slow jam the news" with Jimmy Fallon in June, and Vice President Joe Biden dropped by in September. We can't say just yet what Mrs. Obama will do to follow up on her last couple of Tonight Show appearances, but my fingers are crossed that there will be dancing involved.
Be sure to tune in to NBC on Wednesday, January 11 to see Michelle Obama's final TV appearance as First Lady of the United States on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Some other great guests will appear with Fallon over the next week, including Steve Martin, Kevin James, Emma Stone, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. You can catch The Tonight Show weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET.
