First Lady Michelle Obama will be a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Friday, EW has confirmed.

The First Lady is dropping by to celebrate the third anniversary of her Let’s Move! initiative, although talk about her recent hairstyle change (bangs!) also seems likely. The other guest for Friday’s episode is Scarlett Johansson, who coincidentally was an active President Obama supporter during the recent election.

While this will be the first time Obama has sat down with Fallon, it won’t be her first appearance on the program. Last February, she was part of a pre-taped sketch where Fallon came to the White House and challenged the First Lady to a push-up contest and a potato sack race. Perhaps Friday’s show will feature a rematch.
