Michelle Obama, who’s Let’s Move campaign enlisted Beyonce last year to help get children to hit their Dougie, will kick off 2012 with a little random dancing on the hit Nickelodeon sitcom, iCarly—this time to show her support for military families.
The First Lady will guest-star in an episode in which Carly (Miranda Cosgrove) and her friends set up a surprise birthday party webcast for Carly’s dad, an Air Force colonel who, because of his obligation to his country, can’t make it home to celebrate with his children. Mrs. Obama surprises Carly to commend her for supporting military families—an accolade that Mrs. Obama, too, has enjoyed since founding Joining Forces, an initiative she founded to help, support and recognize American soldiers and their families.
Of course, when there are celebrities on the premises, they just have to appear on Carly’s webcast, iCarly, and once they’re guests, random dancing is involved. If you don’t know about it, ask your kids. Michelle Obama cuts a mean rug in front of iCarly cameras, too. Check out the sneak peak clip featuring Sasha and Malia’s mom, a.k.a. “Your Excellency,” getting her dance on to Maroon 5’s “Can’t Stop.” Adorable!
