And you thought Glee had big-name guest stars.

Michelle Obama taped a special appearance for the hit series iCarly on Monday to help raise awareness to Joining Forces, an initiative that supports and honors U.S. military families. Executive producer Dan Schneider reportedly wrote the episode just for Obama and Joining Forces.

In the episode, Carly's (Miranda Cosgrove) two best friends break some rules to set up a web chat so Carly can speak to her dad, who's serving overseas. The first lady, who hears about the girls' efforts, then comes to talk to them about the importance of connecting soldiers with their families.

The episode is set to air in January.
