Obama Danced With Prince Weeks Before He Died, Ex-President Tells Letterman

Obama Danced With Prince Weeks Before He Died, Ex-President Tells Letterman

The six-episode series will feature appearances by Tina Fey, Jay-Z, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Howard Stern, and President Barack Obama.

Reclining in a chair, with a studio audience in a darkened theater in the background, a tieless Obama chats amiably with Letterman about the time he was invited on stage at a Prince concert several months before the musician's death. "Then Sasha pulls me up, which surprises me because she always mocks my dancing, but I have 'dad moves.'" Cue the presidential dancing advice for dads across America. "You gotta stay in the pocket".

Last week, it was revealed that Barack Obama would be stepping back into the talk show circuit, at least to visit David Letterman for his upcoming Netlix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

Obama said Prince pulled Obama's younger daughter Sasha up to dance with him.

Ahead of Friday's premiere episode of David Letterman's new Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the streaming giant dropped the first clip.

Barack Obama: And I think the key is, is what we call staying in the pocket.

"They start doing like karate kicks and all kinds of stuff", Obama added.

The monthly talk show will see Letterman interview an impressive lineup of influential guests. We're looking forward to seeing the former "Late Show" host take on a new project.
