    Billy Eichner brought his Fuse TV comedy game show back this year with big guests: Big Bird, Michelle Obama and recurring player on the show Elena!

    The first "Billy on the Street" segment of 2015 took place in a grocery store with Big Bird (who is Jane Lynch-tall according to Eichner) and the first lady competing in a new game, "Ariana Grande or Eating a Carrot." Yes, you read that right.

    Before getting into the festivities, Eichner asked Mrs. Obama if she and President Barack Obama watch DVRed episodes of "Hot in Cleveland."

    "A lot of Sports Center going on in our house," Obama tells him in the video above. "If I want to talk to him, I've got to know a little bit about football, basketball or whatever it is."

    "We are here for a very important reason: As we all know other than texting funny GIFs, one of the first lady's priorities has been to raise awareness of healthy eating and exercise for young kids and parents alike," Eichner said.

    Obama's Eat Brighter campaign aims to encourage families to eat more fruits and vegetables. She has teamed up with Sesame Street to get her message out.

    Meanwhile, Elena finally comes out and has no idea she's about to meet the first lady or Big Bird. When she's introduced to Obama, Elena doesn't really believe her eyes. "I just can't believe it. This is the best day of my life," she says. "You're not like an actress being Michelle Obama?...I love Michelle Obama, remember I told you I love her more than anyone?...I've never even been in a supermarket in about 10 years."

    The games include: "Which is better: Eating a carrot or Ariana Grande?", "Who's more deserving of a Kennedy Center Honor: Martin Short or a frozen box of corn?", and "Did you guys know Ted Danson was on CSI?"

    You can also see Obama and Big Bird slow dance in the video, as well as the first lady's opinion of the new all-female Ghostbusters reboot.
