One of the most celebrated events in America is the inauguration of the President of the United States. Last night (Manila time), it was a star-studded celebration at the White House.
One of the most-anticipated appearances at the inauguration was of Beyonce, who arrived at the White House, looking wonderfully stunning, with his husband Jay-Z.
Beyonce stepped on stage and delivered an amazing rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" with the President looking on, smiling.
After singing the national anthem, Beyonce shook hands with US President Obama and gave the First Lady Michelle Obama an embrace. The R&B icon, together with her husband Jay-Z, were all smiles as they stepped out of the platform.

First-ever "American Idol" Kelly Clarkson was also at the White House. She belted out to "My Country Tis of Thee" giving it a wonderful rendition of the American hymn which is one of her best moments of the past few years.

Alicia Keys, on the other hand, modified her hit song, "Girl On Fire," making it fit for the occasion, and for the President.
Accompanied by her grand piano, Alicia started to sing, "He's living in a world and it's on fire. Filled with catastrophe, but he knows he can find a way.... Everybody stares as he goes by, 'cause they can see the flame in his eyes. Watch him as he's lighting up the night. Everybody knows that Michelle is his girl, together they run the world... "He's the President and he's on fire..." Alicia then changed the title of her song to "Obama's On Fire."
