According to the First Lady, it has been seven and a half years since she could be “in the passenger seat, listening to music, rocking out like this.”
But she’s definitely still got it, and when Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” came on, she busted out some amazing moves. “We just dropped the mic into the hive,” she said. “We were making honey in the Beyhive. We were making honey to put in our lemonade.”

Hip-hop icon Missy Elliott made a surprise appearance in the backseat and the three rocked out to “This Is For My Girls,” a song she created for the first lady’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative. Viewers were also treated to the Obama and Elliott jamming to the now classic “Get UR Freak On.”
Beyond her epic dance moves, the First Lady had a Q&A session with the late-night host in which she talked about life in the White House. She admitted that she would miss all the people that she had come to know, though she was looking forward to being able to do things for herself.

“That’s nice, but the freedom that we’ll get in exchange for the privileges and the luxuries — you know, seven and a half years, that’s enough luxuriating. I can make my own grilled cheese sandwich,” she said.
