Even the commander in chief likes to cut a rug, occasionally.

"Oh, [President] Obama, he's got this one little move. I was like, I've got to watch this so I can imitate this move!" Jennifer Hudson told PEOPLE of the scene at First Lady Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party last weekend.

"They loved it. They enjoyed themselves, that's for sure," the Grammy and Oscar winner added.

The American Idol alum, 32, who caught up with PEOPLE at Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival LIVE Concert Series launch on Wednesday, famously serenaded the president on his own 50th birthday in 2011. But on Saturday, she had the night off.

Watch: What's Michelle Obama Getting Barack for Christmas?

Originally posted 12/20/2013 01:00PM

The rules of being in a famous family are slightly different than being in a normal family. For example, on Christmas you or I might try to keep what we're giving our loved ones a secret, so as to preserve the moment of surprise so crucial to the holiday.

However, Michelle Obama, as a famous person, is not bound by those conventions.

President Obama: 'I've Got 3 Opinionated, Strong, Tall Women'

Sitting down for their annual interview with PEOPLE Managing Editor Larry Hackett and Washington, D.C., correspondent Sandra Sobieraj Westfall, President and Mrs. Obama reflect on the year's difficulties, both in the political arena and the smaller challenges he encounters at home.

"I've got three opinionated, strong, tall women," says President Barack Obama. "If they get together, they can have fun about my ears or being too loud, or how I dress."

If only that genial ribbing was the worst of his year. The President, joined by Michelle Obama in the White House's Blue Room, also answered questions about the glitchy launch of healthcare.gov – yes, he tried to log on, and initially found it "frustrating" when he couldn't – and his awkward call to German Chancellor Angela Merkel after it was revealed that the U.S. National Security Agency was listening in on her conversations.
