Who better to usher in four more years than Katy Perry?  Don’t answer that question.

The singer, who likes her costumes loud, headlined the Kids’ Inaugural Concert at the Washington Convention Center on Saturday (January 19th).

First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the event, put on for military families in Washington D.C. ahead of Mr. President’s second inauguration.

Obama, rocking her new bangs and an amazing belt, addressed the audience.  ”You see, when we said we wanted to host a concert to honor our military kids, let me tell you, everyone wanted to be here. Usher wanted to be here. 

“Katy Perry wanted to be here. Nick Cannon, the folks from Glee, and all the other amazing performers — they wanted to be here, too. And let me tell you, they’re not here for me. 

‘”hey’re not here for Dr. Biden. They are here for all of you. Because they know the kind of sacrifices that you all make every single day.”

Usher also performed, along with Glee‘s Naya Rivera and Darren Criss.  And many a star checked in via video, including The Wanted and Ellen DeGeneres.

Alas, it was Perry who made waves in her pin-up gear.  Are those rhinestone tights?!
