Michelle Obama heading to your TV screens!

The 53-year-old former first lady is making her debut as a guest star during the upcoming season of Chef Gordon Ramsey‘s MasterChef Junior, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Other famous faces, such as Martha Stewart and the Muppets, will act as guest judges as a means of replacing former MasterChef Junior judge Graham Elliot.

Michelle does have some cooking show experience under her belt – she has previously made an appearance on Barefoot Contessa with host Ina Garten at the White House.

As first lady, Michelle also made healthy eating one of her biggest priorities with projects like the “Let’s Move!” campaign.

We can’t wait to see the episode!

Barack Obama Wipes Out While Kitesurfing with Richard Branson (Video)

Former President Barack Obama took a spill in the water while kitesurfing with billionaire Richard Branson – and it was all caught on video!

“One of the first stories Barack told me when he and Michelle arrived on Moskito Island was how, just before he became President, he had been surfing on a dangerous break in Hawaii,” Richard wrote on his website. “The new head of his security team turned to him and said: ‘This will be the last time you surf for eight years.’

Richard admitted he invited Barack and Michelle Obama to the island for a “complete break” after the Presidency.

What Are Barack & Michelle Obama Doing Next?

With their time in the White House coming to a close, you may be wondering what Barack and Michelle Obama have next on their to-do list.

The 55-year-old former U.S. President has plans to write a book, work on his presidential library, and start a foundation.

“I’m not going to Wall Street,” he explained in an interview with 60 Minutes. “The amount of time that I’ll be investing in issues is going to be high. But it’ll be necessarily in a different capacity.”

“I’m going to spend time with Michelle,” he added. “You know, we got some catching up to do. We’ve both been busy.”

It looks like he and the 53-year-old former First Lady will have plenty of time to spend with each other, as their youngest daughter Sasha will still be going to high school in Washington, D.C., and their oldest daughter Malia just secured an internship with Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein.

And Michelle? She is reportedly writing a memoir.

Look Back at Obama's Star-Studded Inaugural Concert in 2009

Donald Trump is definitely not the only president to have a pre-inaugural concert at the Lincoln Memorial, as he suggested at his event. President Barack Obama hosted one in 2009 and it featured so many stars!

Obama‘s concert featured such stars as Beyonce, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Shakira, Josh Groban, Usher, John Legend, John Mellencamp, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Renee Fleming, Heather Headley, and many more.

Denzel Washington, Steve Carell, Ashley Judd, Rosario Dawson, Tom Hanks, Queen Latifah, Samuel L. Jackson, and other actors also made appearances to energize the crowd of several hundred thousand people.

The performers lineup for Trump‘s inaugural concert featured much less star power.

Take a look back at the photos, which include Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha, who were just 10 and 7 at the time!
