After lively banter with Ellen DeGeneres, including a reference to the contested push up competition of 2012 (Ms. Obama: “Don’t let me take off my jacket,”) the First Lady appeared in a dance routine with the popular talk show host to push her new #GimmeFive campaign.
Watch the two get busy to Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” (start at about 3:17 for the moves):
This Monday, you can watch the entire FLOTUS interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” with some of the cast from “So You Think You Can Dance.” The first lady stopped by “Ellen” to commemorate the fifth anniversary of “Let’s Move!” with the new #GimmeFive social media initiative that asks participants to share five ways they are being healthy.
Ms. Obama revealed that #GimmeFive would be part of this year’s Easter Egg hunt, and that stars like Beyonce and Ryan Seacrest are already on board.
