Michelle Obama leads Team USA to dodgeball win against James Corden's Team UK

While it's debatable which country is better, but at least on the dodgeball court, the former first lady showed who's the boss

Former First Lady Michelle Obama indulged in a patriotic game of dodgeball tournament on Monday's episode of 'The Late Late Show', leading her Team USA to victory against host James Corden's Team UK.

The face-off began during the segment when Obama and Corden got into a debate over whether the United States or the United Kingdom was better.

After the duo compared a list of musicians and sports, the two eventually decided to finally settle the argument on the dodgeball court as they each recruited celebrity friends for their teams and had a friendly game of Team USA versus Team UK competition.

Obama enlisted the help of Mila Kunis, Allison Janney, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Waithe and Kate Hudson for Team USA. With Kunis, at one point, saying: "Listen, when Michelle Obama calls and asks you to do anything, you just say yes."

While the former first lady said: "You would not believe how easy it was to get people to do this. All I had to say was you're going to throw a ball at James Corden."

Corden brought on UK's Harry Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Bradley and  Reggie Watts for his team. Watts, however, is not British.

"When James Corden calls you, you initially ignore the call," Styles said. "Then, he keeps calling you. Then, he keeps texting saying 'Hey, did you get my call?' Then, he shows up at your house, your work, your hairdresser, your pilates class and your shower."
 
Obama, just before the match, gathered her team up for a pep talk and gave a twist to her iconic statement, saying: "When they go low, we go low. Cause that's dodgeball."

The tournament began with both the teams singing the national anthems as Team USA took the first round. Obama made her presence known quite early in the game as she took a swift shot at Styles and took the singer out. 

Team UK, however, after a quick tea break, rallied and won the second round but eventually, it was Obama's winning strike which won Team USA the trophy.
