Fans at Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s “On the Run II” concert in Paris on Sunday spied former first lady Michelle Obama in the audience along with her two daughters, 17-year-old Sasha and 20-year-old Malia. Barack Obama was missing in action, as he traveling to Africa for an Obama Foundation conference.
Obama couldn’t have asked for a better spot in the crowd, scoring prime placement next to Beyoncé‘s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, right by the stage. Both women were filmed dancing along to the music — and while Knowles-Lawson stopped to take a seat and rest, Obama kept moving. We’d expect nothing less from this dancing machine.

The former FLOTUS wore an all-white ensemble for the show, rocking a white tank, shorts, and a blousy top worn open, plus taupe espadrille heels. But it was her thigh-baring shorts, which featured a drawstring waist, that got the most attention.
Michelle Obama wearing shorts is what’s giving me energy this morning 😍 https://t.co/5xgIdnIpRM

The Obamas aren’t merely fans of the Carter family. Beyoncé sang “At Last” at the 2008 inauguration ball and returned four years later to belt out the national anthem. Michelle Obama returned the favor last September by dressing up as the singer in a “Formation”-inspired tribute for her birthday.
