The Obamas’ First Dance

January 21st, 2009 // 8 Comments

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama (in her now much talked about ivory Jason Wu gown) enjoyed their first dance last night on Inauguration Night at the Neighborhood Ball whilst being serenaded by Beyonce. Beyonce kept Sasha Fierce from coming alive on stage and managed to give Barack and Michelle their moment. Mostly. You know it was her idea to have her own spotlight going. Egotist.

“First of all, how good looking is my wife?” Obama asked the crowd. Yay! How? A lot. As a friend of mine remarked, it’s about time we had some hot people in the White House.

Beyonce sang Etta James’ “At Last,” and the couple was formally introduced by Denzel Washington. Get this – they hit TEN inaugural balls last night. Ten. And they probably weren’t even allowed to drink. When club-hopping becomes a chore. After the 7th dance, Shell musta been like “Can you go get us out of Iraq now, while I save the economy? My dogs are barking.”

What a night. This hat will always be part of our fondest memories.

Featured in the gallery: Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Ray Romano, Leonardo DiCaprio, Shakira, Alicia Keys, Queen Latifah, Nick Cannon, Mary J. Blige.

    You know Bey-Bey was jealous and regretful she wasn’t spotlight dancing and just providing the mood music for the celebrated couple huh!?
    J-Z better become a gazillionare genius showman quick or there is gonna be hell-OH to pay!?

  2. T-Bone

    Beyonce seems like a nice person, but she is totally overrated. She’s not even a great singer. She just happens to be pretty.

  3. Sylvia

    Beyonce has no style when it comes to dressing up.

  4. Pudenda Shenanigans

    Why did Michelle wear a gown made out of toilet paper? It was awful.

    Worst gown in Presidential history.

  5. David in Chicago

    I have to check my rules of men’s dress, but I don’t think a white tie is appropriate with a standard cut jacket with center vent in back.

    YOU ALL ARE JUST RACIAL AND CAN’T LOOK BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL LIKE MICHELE,OBAMA AND BEYONCE AND ME.
