[VIDEO CLIP OF INTERVIEW.]

MR. TOM WILLS:  We’ve heard you sing.

PRES. OBAMA:  [Chuckles.]

MR. WILLS:  We’ve seen you do stand-up at the Correspondents’ Dinner.  I was just wondering if you would give any thought to being on “American Idol” or “America’s Got Talent.”  You’d be a big hit, Mr. President.

PRES. OBAMA:  [Chuckles.]  Let me tell you.  My wife and my daughters find me embarrassing enough when I start performing.

MR. WILLS:  [Chuckles.]

PRES. OBAMA:  They certainly don’t want a large, national audience seeing me i- — in those kinds of situations.  So, I’m – I’m going to try to keep it – my singing to the shower most of the time.

MR. MARTIN:  [Chuckles.]  I understand.
