Michelle Obama looked radiant in a long red gown at the Inaugural Ball.  She wore a dress by Jason Wu.  Who could forget the white dress she wore at the 2008 Inaugural Ball, also by Jason Wu.  The decision made the designer a household name.  Women’s Wear Daily reported that Wu was surprised the First Lady chose to wear another one of his dresses.

Alicia Keys performed a different rendition of her hit song ‘Girl On Fire‘ and changed the lyrics to say “Obama’s on fire, he’s walking on fire….” .  It was definitely fitting for the ceremony.  She looked beautiful in a red ball gown sitting at her piano.  Jennifer Hudson sang a version of Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’, as the first couple had their first dance of the night.

Other performers included John Legend, Black Violin, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Katy Perry.
