Mom-dancing has never been so chic.

In honor of Michelle Obama's national fitness initiative, Let's Move!, Jimmy Fallon donned a soccer-mom wig (with bangs, natch) and pastel cardigan to illustrate the evolution of mom dancing—and, luckily, Obama was his guest tonight, so he didn't have to get his groove on all alone.

Together, they showed off moves like "Go Shopping, Get Groceries," the classic "Raise the Roof," the is-it-silly-or-is-it-sassy "Hip Bump," the always-silly "Sprinkler" and the adorable "Happy Snapper."

We were especially fond of "Just the Hands Part of 'Single Ladies,'" too.

Who knew the first lady had such moves?! Eat your heart out, Harlem Shake.

Asked if she would ever consider sharing a presidential ticket with Hillary Clinton in 2016, Obama revealed that she's actually got her eye on another position that may be opening up...someday.

"And I hear that when Jay Leno retires...that The Tonight Show position is gonna be open and I'm thinking about putting my hat in the ring," she said.

"I got my hat in that ring," Fallon added. "What do you think?" Obama asked. "I'm done thinkin' about it," he replied.
