The Obamas held the last musical event of Barack’s presidency, BET’s Love And Happiness: A Musical Experience, on the south lawn of the White House last night. As the AP reports, the show featured performances from Jill Scott, Usher, the Roots, Bell Biv DeVoe, Janelle Monáe, and De La Soul, among others, and Obama took advantage of his final opportunity to show the nation his sick dance moves, grooving to Drake’s “Hotline Bling” and dabbing with Usher in the middle of the dancefloor. “There will be no twerking tonight. At least not by me,” Obama joked at one point. “I don’t know about Usher.” He also called out Dave Chappelle, who happened to be in the audience: “Dave, you have your own block party! This is my block party.” Watch some of the action below.
