Michelle Obama demonstrates dance moves on 'iCarly' episode (Video)
First lady Michelle Obama is set to appear on Monday's episode of "iCarly," where she will bring some comedy to her cause.
Obama visit the popular Nickelodeon series to bring awareness to her initiative, dubbed Joining Forces, which helps support and honor the nation's military families. The organization was the creation of the first lady and Vice President Joe Biden's wife Dr. Jill Biden.
Carly Shay, the lead character in "iCarly" played by actress Miranda Cosgrove, is the daughter of an Air Force Colonel serving overseas. On the episode, Michelle Obama revealed that her daughters are fans of the show.
In the episode, which is entitled "iMeet the First Lady," Carly's friends Sam (Jennette McCurdy) and Freddie (Nathan Kress) arrange a webcast for Carly and her father after they learn he is not able to make it home for his birthday. The first lady comes to visit Carly to talk about her service to America as a member of a military family and to thank her friends for supporting her during her father's deployment.
"I'm here to say I'm proud of you," Obama said in the episode. "It can be really rough for kids who have a mom or dad way from home for a long time... As important as it is for Carly to support what her dad is doing, it's just as important that she has good friends like you who support what she's doing, too."
The show "iCarly" features Cosgrove, 18, as a girl who hosts an Internet show. The show started in 2007 and has featured guest stars like Jack Black, Jim Parsons and Jane Lynch. Michelle Obama has made television appearances on "Sesame Street" and "Iron Chef America: The Series."
