President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are here to make your day a little brighter.
During BET’s ‘Love & Happiness: An Obama Celebration’ concert special that aired Tuesday night, all eyes were on the duo as they danced and sang along to Usher’s performance.
As the 38-year-old singer belted out his 2004 hit, “Yeah!,” POTUS and FLOTUS pulled out all their best dance moves, which you can see in the video above.
But the dancing didn’t stop there. They were off their feet and jamming throughout Usher’s entire set, as many fans (and the singer himself!) documented via Twitter.
“Tonight is all about Love & Happiness,” Usher wrote, accompanied with a clip of the couple rocking out as he sang “You Make Me Wanna.” “#ThankYouObama.”
“Go on with yer bad self, President Barack Obama,” another exclaimed. “Go President, that’s MY President. #ThankYouObama.”
Get it, Michelle!
The star-studded musical celebration, which was hosted by Terrence J and Regina Hall and marked the Obamas’ final musical evening in the White House, also featured performances from Common, Janelle Monae, The Roots, Bell Biv DeVoe, De La Soul, Michelle Williams, Kierra Sheard, Jill Scott, Yolanda Adams and former Hamilton star Leslie Odom Jr.
“Ever since 1801, when the U.S. Marine Band played the first reception hosted by [President] John and [first lady] Abigail Adams, live performances have always been a part of life at the White House,” Barack explained to the crowd. “[That] may not sound like a big deal to you, but that was sort of the twerking of their time. There will also be no twerking tonight — at least not by me. I don’t know about Usher.”
“It’s with a little bit of bitter-sweetness that this is our final musical evening as president and first lady,” he said, adding that this is an “essential part” of the American experience. “It’s a mirror [of] who we are, and a reminder of who we can be.”
