Michelle Obama and DJ D-Nice teamed up for their online Voter Registration party on Instagram live.

Last week, DJ D-Nice had all of Instagram rocking with his series of star-studded #ClubQuarantine. The iconic DJ managed to pull in crowds of more than 100k but tonight, numbers for the duo’s #CouchParty are expected to surpass that.

The Couch Party is in collaboration with First Lady Obama and her nonprofit organization “When We All Vote” and is being hosted on Instagram live. The event is not only a way to have a great time during this period of self-quarantine, but also to encourage everyone to register to vote via Outvote.

OutVote is a mobile organizing platform to connect with unregistered voters. The organization had more than 3,000 volunteers to text during the event. By using “laptops, iPads, or smartphones,” the volunteers will make it their mission to contact 50,000 people about voting by 9 p.m.

“As the country’s reality continues to change in the wake of the coronavirus’ ongoing impact on individuals and communities, When We All Vote is committed to exploring innovative and safe ways to reach voters where they are—at home,” the group said in a statement per The Hill.

Listeners who’ve tuned in have already danced on their couches to disco hits such a George Benson’s “Give Me The Nights” as well as the Sister Sledge hit “Thinking of You.”

“Get at least three of your friends to vote,” D-Nice urged his followers, adding that the goal is to hit 50,000 followers.

Celebs such as actress Tisha Campbell, fashion designer Dapper Dan and comedian Loni Love jumped into the virtual building early at the 6:30 p.m. ET start time.
