Michelle Obama, Jimmy Fallon show off their 'mom dancing'

(CNN) – First lady Michelle Obama has some moves–and so does Jimmy Fallon.

The pair teamed up for a video on the "Evolution Of Mom Dancing," which was released online Friday before the first lady's appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

Fallon and Obama appeared to be gearing up for some sort of showdown earlier in the day on Twitter–perhaps a repeat of their matchup from last year.

In February 2012, Obama invited Fallon to the White House for a calisthenics challenge, where the two competed in basic exercises as a way to promote her "Let's Move" campaign against childhood obesity.

And Friday night's appearance was shaping up to be Round Two.

    ""In 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a voter identification law passed by Indiana, leading many experts to conclude that it would be hard to challenge such laws in court.
    Since the last presidential election in 2008, some 15 states have passed or tightened legislation requiring people to identify themselves before voting."

    "Nice try, but you're lying as usual."

    In 2012 the Voter IDE laws were struck down in every state covered under the 5th Clause. Furthermore, several prominent Republicans, including RNC Chair Preibus, have publicly admitted that the Voter ID laws were an attempt to suppress the vote.

    "Nice try, but we gotcha." Once Again.

    Umm no. That 2008 case is true and many experts did think that. Then, in 2012, AFTER that Indiana case was decided, those experts were proven wrong when blatantly racist attempts to suppress and dilute minority votes in TX were tossed out byb the federal court. YOU are teh one lying and you payed zero attention to the importance of chronology. Besides, nobody is saying Voter ID laws are PER SE racist attempts to suppress and dilute minority votes. Rather, voter ID laws are a vehicle for trying to hide those attempts in SOME instances. Other voter ID laws haven't even been challenged because they were fair on their face.

    It will drive them up the wall with accusations that Michelle Obama "cheated". Take a good look at the picture. Observe the end of the rope behind Fallon compared to the end of the rope behind Michelle. Notice how Michelle's end is *not* laying on the floor? That's because there's a second person behind her pulling the rope with her. It's two against one.

    the federal government uder the racist obama administration uses archaic laws from days gone by to claim racism where none exists today in order to leave our elections wide open to voter fraud. once these laws are struck down due to their abuse, states all over the country will be able to protect the integrity of our elections.

    There were emails between TX state legislators that came into evidence in which they literally discussed...LITERALLY, SPECIFICALLY AND EXPLICITLY DISCUSSED...using the redistricting and other methods to try to minimize the effect of the rapidly growing minority population and prevent it from causing the GOP to lose districts or electoral votes. Your tinfoil hatted conspiracy-style frothing at the mouth blather is wholely without merit. I don't even need to bother addressing your paranoid delusions about widespread voter fraud that has consitently been proven not to exist.

    Oh dear, I guess we needed a puff piece to get our minds of the next crisis. We will all be wishing we could avoid the real problems we face. Certainly, there are some in D.C. who would like us get away from the real issues. There are others who do not believe the problems exist. The bottom line is we, American citizens need to be very aware of what Congress is doing and let them hear from us.
