After Barack Obama showed off some respectable moves as a guest last year, this week it was Michelle’s turn on the Ellen DeGeneres Show dance floor – and phew, the lady knew how to move.

She showed her command of The Prep dance move and got on down to Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulders”, the song that her husband alluded to in a speech, while wiping some Hillary Clinton flak from his shoulders.

DeGeneres, launching her sixth season and the first show since she married partner Portia de Rossi, then told her that she dances better than her husband. “That’s what I have been telling him for years,” said Mrs Obama, “but I think this will settle it, don’t you agree?” We look forward to Sarah Palin on Ellen.
