Ellen DeGeneres and Michelle Obama continued their friendly rivalry when the First Lady returned for a segment on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (via video) on Monday.

The daytime host had some fun with Obama, remembering the duo’s famed push-up showdown in February (which was won by the First Lady). As a measure of revenge, DeGeneres decided to compare prom pictures.

The comedienne first revealed her own prom picture, where she was adorned in ’70s plaid. “That was a tablecloth at one point,” she said.

DeGeneres then showed the world a young Obama (then named Michelle Robinson) decked out for her prom and revealing a lot of leg in the process.

“That split was a little high,” said Obama. “I don’t know if I’d let my kids go out with a split that high.”

“Were you shopping at Pier 1 or something?” DeGeneres asked of the First Lady’s position on a wicker chair.
