The 'Glad You Came' singers admit their highlight of the year was meeting the US First Lady.

The Wanted have confessed that they were told by Michelle Obama that she is a big fan of the band.

The 'Gold Forever' singers were asked to pick out their highlight of the year, and Siva Kaneswaran said a meeting with the First Lady was top.

"The highlight of our year so far has been meeting Michelle Obama," he said. "She was so normal with us. She told us that The Wanted were on her playlist."

He added: "I'm sure we're on her 25 Most Played on her iPhone."

Earlier this year, the band revealed that the US President Barack Obama and his wife's children were fans of the group and were congratulated on all their success in the US.

The Wanted have enjoyed huge popularity across the pond in 2012 with the release of their single 'Glad You Came'. 

Meanwhile, the band performed a stand-out set at this past weekend's Jingle Bell Ball and said it was great to be back performing in the UK again.

They are also planning on releasing their new third album in April 2013.
