Michelle Obama shows off her funky dance moves in an upcoming segment set to air Monday on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

On Friday, producers released a fun preview clip, which finds the first lady taking on a not-so-simple routine with DeGeneres and dancers from the "So You Think You Can Dance" All Stars. They all get down to "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars -- and it's definitely worth a viewing.

At one point near the start of the dance Mrs. Obama stops everything when her mic's battery pack falls off.

"There is some hip thrusting," she says. "There's a lot of it."

She wasn't lying.

The first lady didn't appear on DeGeneres' show just to dance. She paid a visit to the set to talk about the fifth anniversary of her anti-childhood obesity initiative.

Mrs. Obama previously displayed her push-up skills on the show.
