US first lady makes guest appearance on 'iCarly'

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Teen star Miranda Cosgrove says she usually doesn't get nervous about taping episodes of her Nickelodeon comedy "iCarly," but that changed when first lady Michelle Obama taped a recent guest appearance.

The 18-year-old Cosgrove says the idea of having Obama on the set made her "nervous," but the first lady was approachable and is a "nice, pretty normal person."

Nickelodeon and the White House are joining forces to bring awareness to the ways kids can support U.S. military families. "iCarly" is a good fit because Cosgrove's character is the daughter of an Air Force colonel who is serving overseas.

The episode of "iCarly" featuring the first lady will air Jan. 16.
