It’s probably the second most awaited event in any inauguration, the president and his first lady’s dance.
At the Commander-in-Chief’s Inaugural Ball on January 21, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama danced to Jennifer Hudson’s beautiful rendition of the soul classic, Let’s Stay Together.
The president first gave a speech honoring American troops and urged the audience to give the brave men and women a round of applause. Afterwards, as way of introducing the first lady, he dropped this cute joke, “There’s one last thing I’ve gotta do. I’ve got a date,” to loud cheering from the audience.
The president then continued expressing his appreciation for the lady ‘who inspires’ him ‘everyday.’ Michelle Obama was radiant in a red chiffon gown from Jason Wu and shoes from Jimmy Choo.
It was a sweet, romantic take on an already-iconic dance. We wonder which couple are we going to see dancing next, in four years’ time!
