First Lady Michelle Obama pulls no punches with Jay Leno

There's a lot going on at the White House that we just don't get to see.

But last night on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," Leno made sure to get to the bottom of things in his interview with First Lady Michelle Obama -- and he wasn't above doctoring a little video while he was at it.

First, the host got her to reveal what many of us suspected after the Commander-in-Chief's recent headline-making appearance at the Apollo Theater: the President likes to croon.

"He does have a beautiful voice, and he sings to me all the time," Obama told Leno. "He doesn't hesitate to show off his lungs to his wife."

They also talked nutrition, and Obama had brought along some of the White House honey. But the best moment may have come when Al Roker entered the conversation.  Leno played a TODAY segment featuring Roker speaking with the first lady about how she likes to box ... and then cut to her landing a solid jab at his face.

It didn't really happen, but Obama had a great sense of humor over it, noting: "I didn't mean to hit him that hard."

And when TODAY's Ann Curry and Matt Lauer confronted Roker over the clip, so did he -- after all, he's used to taking it on the chin.

"After that, she went after my family!" he laughed.
