Pretty sure the first lady's appearance last night on 106th and Park marks the first time a member of the presidential family guested on the video talk show.

Making the rounds to push President Obama’s “North Star” Goal—that by the year 2020, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world—Michelle Obama stopped by the show dressed cool in a leather blazer and casual gray slacks.

"So many young people just get into the grades and checking the boxes of the things they think they're supposed to do, but there's also a value in learning how to love to learn," she said. "I want my girls to be lifelong learners, but I also don't want them to take anything for granted."

She also said that she has been encouraging her girls to consider leaving home for college.

"I've been talking to my kids about college and getting them to think about how much fun it's going to be and getting excited about the possibility of living on a campus with other young people," she continued. "I don't want them staying at home up under me."

Hosts Bow Wow and Keisha Chante had a little fun with the FLOTUS, subjecting her to segment called the "Bowl of Randomness." Bow Wow held a tin bowl with questions for the first lady that she would pick and then have to answer.

The first question: What's one thing you miss about your life before becoming first lady?

FLOTUS: Being able to walk out the front door with no agents, walk down to CVS and buy some toothpaste.

Second question: On a scale of one to 10, how awesome was it when the president started singing, "Let's Stay Together?"

FLOTUS: It was pretty awesome. He has a really good singing voice.

Third question: What's your biggest fashion regret?

FLOTUS: Oh, that's a tough one. I'm kind of always happy with what I am wearing. Sometimes I forget I'm the first lady so I'm like running around in shorts. I know the first time we went on a family vaction I had shorts on getting off of Air Force One and that created a huge stink.

Last question: Who's a better dancer, you or the president?

FLOTUS: That's easy. Me.

She then broke out into a smooth shoulder hunch to emphasize her point.
