Michelle Obama Jimmy Fallon

First Lady Michelle Obama will be a guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Feb. 20, during his first week on the air as Jay Leno’s successor.

The first lady’s appearance on the show last year became a viral video sensation, when she appeared in a segment called the “Evolution of Mom Dancing.” She had been promoting her Let’s Move campaign to promote physical fitness.

Fallon will make his debut as host of “The Tonight Show” on Feb. 17, with the show moving from Los Angeles to New York.

  1. Very inappropriate for a First Lady.

  2. James Clifford says:

    Congratulations, Jimmy Fallon. You just lost yet another viewer before your hosting of The Tonight Show even debuts.

    • cadavra says:

      Indeed. Because having the First Lady of the United States as a guest on your show is such a treasonous, un-American thing to do.

  3. First U2, now Michelle Obama? What a debut week!
