"Youre doing something new at the White House for the Easter Egg Roll, right?" the host asked.
"In honor of the fifth anniversary [of the Lets Move campaign] Ive issued this challenge. Were calling it #GimmeFive and were using the hashtag #GimmeFive on social media," Michelle said. "Were asking folks all across the country to #GimmeFive ways their leading a healthy life. Weve got a lot of celebrities involved," she said, thanking BeyoncéNick Jonas and Ryan Seacrest for theirinvolvement. "Were gonna take over the Easter Egg Roll this year with a #GimmeFive dance, and actually the So You Think You Can Dance all stars are coming to the Easter Egg Roll to teach the whole South Lawn this dance."
She added, "I have actually challenged this woman right here to learn the #GimmeFive dance."

The audience cheered as Ellen reveale that shes been "practicing somewhat." The comedian continued, "Im very busy, very, very busy and Im not really good at choreography. Im more of a free style."
"Youre more street?" Michelle asked, which Ellen confirmed. The Finding Dory star then admitted, "I have tried to learn the dance, and so if thats your challenge...You have learned the dance I assume?"
"Yeah, Ive been...Im busy, too, you know!" Michelle said with a laugh. "But I have taken [lessons] backstage. I just sort of looked over and I just thought, Maybe we can do this...if youre up for the challenge!" Ellen agreed, but added, "The thing is your people said youve been practicing for a year so."
"My people?" Michelle asked. "You think I have people?"
"Yeah, so many people," the comic joked. "Everyone was telling me. Well, listen, Im in better shape than you so what well do is…I mean, we know that from the push-up competition [in February 2012]."
"Yes, clearly," Michelle joked before clarifying that she won the push-up competition.
"You did not," Ellen protested. Michelle fired back, "I did! I absolutely did!"
Ellen jokingly accused Michelle of cheating, then made peace. "OK, lets not [argue]...Youre pretty."
Michelle suggested that they see whos more in shape "here, now."
"A push-up competition again?" Ellen asked. FLOTUS replied, "No! No! The #GimmeFive."
"Look how scared you were of that!" the host joked.
"Dont let me take off my jacket," Michelle joked. "Dont make me take off my jacket!"

Once they hit the dance floor, Ellen told her, "Youve rehearsed it, youve practiced it and its part of the Lets Move campaign. Its important to move. Its important to dance." Sensing Ellens competitive spirit, Michelle warned her, "I got the dance steps the same time you got the dance steps, so dont even try it!"
Before they danced to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars "Uptown Funk," Michelles mic pack fell off.
"Oh, I couldve taken you down!" Ellen joked.
"Is it gonna stay?" Michelle asked as a P.A. fixed her microphone. "Because there is some hip thrusting."
