First lady, Ellen DeGeneres dance to ‘Uptown Funk’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama has brought the “funk” to Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show.

The first lady announces in a taped appearance that she and the “So You Think You Can Dance” All Stars will team up at next month’s White House Easter Egg Roll to teach everyone to dance to “Uptown Funk.” That’s the hit song recorded by English producer Mark Ronson and American recording artist Bruno Mars.

Mrs. Obama appears to mark the fifth anniversary of her anti-childhood obesity initiative.

As part of the anniversary, she is asking members of the public to tell her five things they are doing to lead a healthier life.

Show producers released a video clip of Mrs. Obama and DeGeneres performing the high-energy dance.

The segment is scheduled to air on Monday.
