Today on The Ellen Degeneres Show: Ellen has a dance party with First Lady Michelle Obama.

And it’s just as fun to watch as you think it might be.

Introducing her Gimme Five (#GimmeFive) campaign, Obama said she challenged some friends (who happen to be celebrities like Beyonce and Ricky Gervais) to show her five ways they’re leading a healthy life.

Then she added a Gimme Five Dance, which will be performed at the White House Easter Egg Roll this year. To demonstrate, Obama challenged Ellen dance it with her, to which Ellen joked she was “very busy” and more of a “freestyle” dancer. Also, she’s in “better shape” than the First Lady.

Watch them get down to the tune of “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson with the “So You Can Think You Can Dance” crew.

The episode, which also features Bellamy Young — the fictious First Lady Melody “Mellie” Grant of “Scandal” — airs today at 4 p.m. on KMBC.
