And what a Presidential Inauguration it was! Yesterday (January 21) saw a pretty intense string of inaugural ceremonies, parties and sundry star-studded stuff, including (of course) a couple of powerhouse performances from people like Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson.

But last night kept the party going even harder, as Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and fun. all performed at the Inaugural Ball, which sounds like something out of The Hunger Games but was actually pretty fun!

Keys performed an endearingly clumsy version of “Girl On Fire” titled “Obama’s On Fire,” which doesn’t exactly work, but it was well-intentioned; Hudson, for her part, performed “Let’s Stay Together” while Barack Obama and Michelle Obama danced, and it was sweet and lovely. Then fun. showed up and did “We Are Young” and everyone was like “Huh? Well, okay, this song is cool, let’s dance anyway,” or something to that effect, probably. All-in-all, pretty good taste.
