After a long day of Inaugural events, the president and first lady cut loose at their after-party with a host of celebrity friends.

The first couple was spotted leaving the Inauguration Ball in Washington, D.C. at around 10.30 p.m., according to the Daily Mail, after which they returned to the White House where the shindig took place.

The Obamas and their guests reportedly partied into the wee hours of the morning, and took advantage of several photo ops that were shared via Instagram and Twitter by attendees.

“I don't even know what to say. It's 3:15am and I just teared up seeing our president getting down at the white house,” John Legend's model girlfriend, Chrissy Teigen, tweeted.

Both she and Legend shared photos of themselves from the event.

Singer Eric Benet and his family were also in attendance, and his daughter, India, shared a photo of them and his wife, Manuela Testolini, posing for a photo with Katy Perry and John Mayer.

India famously did the dance for Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” alongside First Lady Michelle Obama.

Kelly Clarkson, who performed “My Country, Tis of Thee,” at the inauguration ceremony that morning attended the after-party with her fiancé, Brandon Blackstock, and wore a floral Oscar De La Renta gown. She shared a photo of herself and Blackstock in their “fancy” attire.

“Just partied at the White House. I kid you not, Michelle Obama stood up and got the party started ... seriously cool First Lady,” Clarkson tweeted as she left around midnight, according to the Mail.

However, many guests stayed a lot later. Perry tweeted at 3 a.m, “Just left the White House. All other parties from here on our will be judged unless they take place at the White House.”

Other inaugural performers in attendance included Alicia Keys, who performed at the Inaugural Ball earlier in the evening, and was accompanied at the after-party by her husband, Swizz Beatz.

The couple shared photos they took with the president and first lady. Beatz shared a photo of him and Barack Obama embracing among the festive crowd.

Apparently, fun was had by all. Teigen, who posted a photo of herself still in bed, tweeted on Tuesday morning, “Bleeeehhhhsjsksjsjskjsbsjsknsksksn. Worth it.”

The president and first lady, however, seemed to have no trouble geting out of bed this morning. They were up bright and early in order to attend the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Service at the National Cathedral in Washington.
