White House

The Inaugural Balls: Red Carpets and Black Limos (Photos)

January 21, 2013

The President and first lady Michelle Obama made three stops Monday night, attending the Commander-in-Chief's Ball and both floors of The Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center.

The Obamas danced to Jennifer Hudson singing "Let's Stay Together." 

After briefly greeting Hudson and waving to the crowd, the first couple left the stage. The presidential motorcade arrived back at the White House shortly after 10 p.m.
