We're huge fans of James Corden and his always-entertaining Carpool Karaoke segment. Who knew he could get the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama to rock to Beyonce and Stevie Wonder on the passenger seat? And that's not all, Missy Elliot joins in, too to sing "This is for the Girls" with them.

What's even more awesome about the FLOTUS dropping some serious vocal calisthenics and dance moves? She gets to share her initiative Let Girls Learn, which aims to get girls around the world educated. Her message to kids in the US? "Don't take your education for granted." Did you know that she joined Snapchat to help spread awareness about this advocacy? Now, that's dope.
