'Late Late Show' host James Corden is known for his comedic 'Carpool Karaoke' segments with celebrities -- generally singers and actors. The talk-show host just took it up a notch by having First Lady of the US Michelle Obama in the front seat.

Having the President's wife singing Stevie Wonder and Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' with Missy Elliot in the back seat is bound to go viral online. Not only is it great exposure for the Late Late Show and the iconic rapper, it's also a way for Mrs. Obama to reach out to a younger American audience. The fun carpool demonstrates that the current US Presidential family is in touch with young adults, combating the notion that politicians are stiff and unapproachable.

Barak Obama was one of the first American politicians to use social media when campaigning for office. He recognized the importance of the youth vote and found a channel to interact with them. The First Lady's ride with James Corden reinforces this and will make the Obamas one of the most memorable political couples in the world, leaving a ground-breaking legacy behind them.
