The former first lady is touring the country promoting her memoir, "Becoming," and participated in a conversation Saturday night moderated by her longtime friend and former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

When the conversation shifted to Michelle's feelings about her husband, Jarrett announced a "special guest" and Barack Obama came on stage carrying a bouquet of pink roses for his wife.

The crowd at Capital One Arena leapt to its feet, leading the former president to compare himself to rapper Jay-Z.
