Michelle Obama's #GimmeFive Dance

Here's a riddle for you: What happens when you bring together the First Lady of the United States, one of the funniest women on TV and some of the country's most celebrated commercial dancers?

On Monday, First Lady Michelle Obama got together with fellow dance-lover Ellen DeGeneres to talk about her #GimmeFive challenge. In celebration of Let's Move's fifth anniversary, she's asking Americans everywhere to show off five ways they stay fit and healthy. Among those who've accepted the #GimmeFive challenge? Umm...Beyoncé:

NBD. But the First Lady had a different challenge in mind for Ellen: a dance-off of sorts. She challenged Ellen to learn the brand-new #GimmeFive Dance—and to perform it on the show. And, as you can see, they had some serious backup: "So You Think You Can Dance" All-Stars Travis Wall, tWitch Boss, Jasmine Harper, Robert Roldan, Kathryn McCormick and Marko Germar. Phew. No pressure, at all.

See how it all went down!

(Btw, we love Mrs. Obama's vocal support of dance as a central part of a healthy lifestyle.)
