Michelle Obama is about to do prime time two times.

First came news last week that the First Lady will guest-star on the May 3 episode of NCIS. On Thursday, the White House announced Obama would also appear on the May 2 installment of The Voice.

Both appearances are tied to celebrating the fifth anniversary — and raising awareness — of Joining Forces, which she co-founded with Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden. The initiative seeks support for service members, veterans, and their families through job opportunities, employment resources, and easy access to wellness programs.

Both Obama and Biden will appear on Monday’s Top 10 edition of NBC’s singing competition, which will host an audience filled with active military, veterans and their families. The following night, Obama will play herself in a White House-set episode of the CBS drama NCIS, in which the First Lady will meet with Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) as well as the wife of a Marine for a Joining Forces roundtable. 

Last year, Obama and Biden appeared in an episode of NBC’s The Night Shift to promote Joining Forces.

Obama has guested in shows ranging from Parks and Recreation to Nashville to Shark Tank, and Biden made a cameo with her husband in the Parks series finale.
