Michelle Obama kept it classy, even though we secretly wanted her to respond to Melania Trump’s Republication National Convention speech

Winner and loser of the week: Michelle Obama slays in "Carpool Karaoke"; Tom Hiddleston has to be Taylor Swift's boyfriend

Winner:

Michelle Obama. While the world went into complete meltdown mode over Melania Trump's Republication National Convention speech - parts of which were taken from Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech - the current First Lady was staying classy. The Internet waited patiently for Obama to tweet out a response, hoping for a Katy Perry-style reaction gif. But nothing. Instead, we got the most epic "Carpool Karaoke" with Late Late Show host James Corden. The two talked about the secret service, joked about being members of Beyonce's "Beyhive" and discussed the rare treat of leaving the White House. "I've been in a car - it was months ago - with my daughter who learned to drive," she said while the two drove loops around 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. "And that was the only time in seven and a half years that I've been in the passenger seat listening to music, rocking out like this." We saw Michelle dance to Stevie Wonder, Bey's Single Ladies and the song This Is For My Girls, which benefits Obama's Let Girls Learn initiative. The highlight, of course, was watching her dance to Get Ur Freak On with Missy Elliot in the back seat. And while we still hope for a side-eye remark on the plagiarism, this was a solid consolation prize....
