michelle obama carpool karaoke

James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” has been nothing but TV (and Internet) gold so far, but this latest episode might be the best one yet. Riding shotgun with Corden on The Late Late Show last night was Michelle Obama, who once again proved why she’s the baddest First Lady of all time (of all time). Cruising round the White House grounds, James and Michelle belted out numbers by Beyoncé and Stevie Wonder before picking up a VIP (very important passenger): Missy Elliott. Watch it all go down below.

idris elba desiigner panda

Jimmy Fallon debuted a spanking new game with a little help from Idris Elba on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show. Dubbed Box of Microphones, this latest musical goof around involved — you guessed it — a box of microphones, with each mic having a different voice-altering effect. After each picking a mic at random, Idris delivered a chipmunk cover of Desiigner’s “Panda” while Jimmy brought us a robot-voiced rendition of Drake’s “One Dance.” The guys then wrapped it up with a hilarious auto-tuned duet of Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’ “Endless Love.”

childish gambino atlanta trailer

In addition to his new album Pharos, which will be debuted over the course of three shows in Joshua Tree, CA, we’ve also got Donald Glover’s FX series Atlanta to look forward to this fall. Starring, written and directed by Glover, the show, according to the official description, “revolves around two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race will make their quest anything but easy.”

After announcing the series will premiere on September 6, FX has rolled out a new teaser trailer for Atlanta. Like the first clip that hit the ‘net last month, this latest promo doesn’t give too much away, but we do see Glover waking up in all kinds of situations while hustling his way to hip-hop stardom. The grind is real.

2 chainz colbert

2 Chainz has been putting in serious work in the studio lately, but he recently took a break from the booth to make an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. As well as giving Colbert a quick primer on his career, Tity Boi talked about his CEO,000,000 clothing brand and GQ web series, Most Expensivest Shit. In the spirit of his upscale exploits, 2 Chainz and Colbert sampled some gold-laced popcorn which apparently goes for $5 a kernel. You won’t see this stuff been thrown about in the cinema.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis turned the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon inside out on Wednesday. The Seattle duo decided to throw on the suit and tie, starting off their performance of “Dance Off” in an office setting, grabbing some friends before moving through the lobby of Rockefeller Center before blasting through The Tonight Show studio stage.

From there, it turned into quite a dance party as the audience clapped along and cheered Macklemore’s every move. The appearance was in support of the pair’s No. 1 album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. Watch the performance, plus Macklemore & Ryan Lewis going head-to-head against Elle Fanning and Steve Higgins in a game of Catchphrase below.
