Michelle's Instagram post was no small shout-out, either. The post garnered over 258,000 likes and nearly 2,000 comments.

Meanwhile, Hillary's Instagram was mostly silent compared to Michelle's post about Keys' Broadway show. The former secretary of state, who boasts 6.2 million Instagram followers, posted a few days after Michelle to celebrate Suffs' Tony Award nomination.
