"Do you think Michelle Obama is Beyoncé's Beyoncé?"

In case you missed it, first lady Michelle Obama brought the house down at the Democratic National Convention Monday night.

Best speeches, DNC night 1: 1. Michelle Obama 2. Everyone else

Discussing her children and husband in what was an intensely personal speech, she made an emotional case for Hillary Clinton.

She said Clinton "has the guts and the grace to keep coming back and putting those cracks in that highest and hardest glass ceiling until she finally breaks through, lifting all of us along with her."

"That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves," she said, growing visibly emotional.

"And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.

"And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States."

President Obama responded with pride and love on Twitter.

Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.

Or, as the internet put it:

My swag different, that bag different My wife Michelle, I brag different. #DemsInPhilly

People couldn't look away.

I love hearing Michelle Obama speak. So captivating. I could listen to her explain the origin of broccoli.

There were a lot of feelings.

This gonna be me when you leave the White House @FLOTUS

The black community after @FLOTUS gave her speech #DemsInPhilly

In a weird way I think how @FLOTUS feels watching the girls on the lawn of the slave-built WH is the same way everyone feels watching her.

I'm going to miss the dignity the Obama family brought to the office & to the country

Michelle Obama speeches are like hot tea (with a slip of whiskey) before bed + a firm but gentle read that makes you gather your entire life

Queen Bey was invoked.

Do you think Michelle Obama is Beyoncé's Beyoncé?

It must be so nice being the only woman Beyoncé wishes she could be

Of course, there were jokes about Melania Trump.

"I feel like me and Melania might still have sex / I made that bitch famous."

this was the Michelle Obama speech to plagiarize

Michelle Obama really had the best speech of the RNC and the DNC. Crazy.

I have to say #Michelle Obama's speech was pretty good. If u missed it, no worries, Melania #Trump will repeat it at some point.

Some noted her classy shade.

CNN can't seem to put their finger on how Michele Obama spoke about Trump but not by name... baby, that's called shade.

Michelle shaded Trump, Bernie, Bernie or Bust and Twitter, without mentioning any by name. Propped up Hillary perfectly. Flawless execution.

michelle obama is eating donald trump while his whole family watches

Many hoped she would be on a future ballot.

Michelle Obama has my vote for President in 2020.

Can Michelle Obama run for office in 2020.
