President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama stunned the audience on Monday night when they shared a dance at the 2013 Inaugural Ball.
Dressed in a beautiful custom-made chiffon and velvet red gown by Jason Wu, and Jimmy Choo shoes, Michelle Obama once again showed off her great sense of fashion. Her other accessories included a ring by Kimberly McDonald, and, of course, her new bangs.
She and President Obama were serenaded by Jennifer Hudson, who is the season three American Idol alum. Kelly Clarkson, who performed at the Inauguration on Monday afternoon, is also a winner of the hit talent competition.
Hudson, who was dressed in a form-fitting black gown, serenaded the couple at the Inaugural Ball, singing Al Green’s classic, "Let’s Stay Together." In January, while at a fundraiser at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, Obama sang part of the song and the video of him doing so immediately went viral.
Fellow performers at the Commander-In-Chief Ball included Jamie Fox, Marc Anthony, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley and Chris Cornell.
