Michelle Obama does Uptown Funk

There’s a new reason for Uptown Funk to be stuck in your head, as Michelle Obama made her on stage debut with the catchy tune and a whole heap of backup dancers on Monday.

The First Lady added some funk to the 137th annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday afternoon as she danced on stage in the presidential backyard in front of 35,000 guests.
Michelle’s groove with the So You Think You Can Dance All Stars celebrated the fifth anniversary of the First Lady's "Let’s Move!" campaign battling childhood obesity, with the theme of the event named #GimmeFive.

But this was not the first time the moves of the First Lady have been put on show, with Michelle performing ‘The evolution of Mom Dancing Part 2’ on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week, and a dance-off with Ellen on the entertainer's show earlier this year.
Her performance of "The Dougie" at Alice Dean Middle School in 2011 also went viral.
And with moves like that - mum-like or not - we don’t blame her for showing them off every now and then.
