First lady Michelle Obama on Saturday will appear in the longest running Spanish-language variety show in America — Univision’s Sábado Gigante, which is taped in Miami.

The three-hour, circus-style show, hosted by Don Francisco, is known for is comedic sketches, performers, dancing girls, contests and tearful family reunions.

In South Florida, the show airs from 8 to 11 p.m. on Univision23.

The first lady will appear during a popular kids’ segment, “ Conversando con los Niños,” which resembles a “kids-say-the-darnest-things-routine.” She will promote her Let’s Move! national initiative against widespread childhood obesity.

Greeting viewers initially in Spanish, Michelle Obama will speak directly to Hispanic children, highlighting the importance of balanced nutrition and inviting them to join their family members in the kitchen to cook together and prepare healthy meals.

The network said viewers can join the conversation on Twitter via @sabadogigante as well as comment along with others on facebook.com/SabadoGigantepaginaoficial.
