Michelle Obama The Voice

TVLine Items: FLOTUS Visits The Voice, TVD Grad on Mercy Street and More

Michelle Obama‘s IMDb page is in need of some updating.

The First Lady, who will guest-star on the May 3 episode of NCIS, will also appear on Monday’s installment of The Voice, NBC announced Thursday.

In celebration of the fifth anniversary of their Joining Forces initiative — which calls on Americans to rally around and support service members, veterans and their families — Obama and Dr. Jill Biden will join host Carson Daly, the four coaches and an audience filled with active duty service members, retired service members and military families to discuss the program.

    As unconventional as it can be to have a First Lady do an appearance on a show like the Voice, if it’s to plug something related to supporting vets I’m all about it. Supporting the troops is probably one of the most bipartisan things you can do…

    I admire and respect our First Lady so much!

    Only 266 and this nightmare will finally be over.

      Really? Nightmare? Hyperbole much? Come on – it has not been a nightmare…unemployment is under 5%, gas is under $2.00, etc… i could go on and on but i’m sure you are a conservative republican tea bagger who may or may not be a racist against the president who wears blinders to any accomplishment that our president achieves.

      • Charles g says:

        Having gas below $2 is not an accomplishment. it is a harbinger of fiscal failure. The unemployment rate is not below 5% when you count those that have stopped looking for work. and Pres. Obama will be the first President without one year of GDP growth over 3%. Yeah the last 8 years have been just great. there is not a single policy he has that has worked. Plus he has increased the national debt by more than 100% since he has started. And Please do not call me conservative, as I am not. just a realist

    I live in the area where Mercy Street is filmed. I may just have to find the exact location so I can see Chris Wood. Loved him on TVD and I’m liking him so far on Containment.
