Best Tweets of the 2013 Inaugural Ball

The inauguration of President Barack Obama’s second term kicked off with a ceremony and a parade on Monday and was topped with two inaugural balls, the first of which was open to the general public and the second, the Commander-in-Chief Ball for military families, both held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. As many as many as 30,000 guests were expected at the main ball where the President and First Lady celebrated and danced while celebrity singers such as Alicia Keys and Stevie Wonder performed. Of course Twitter went crazy for the event. Check out the best tweets of the 2013 Inauguration Ball.

We’ll start off with a tweet from the First Lady herself, Michelle Obama. Barack and Michelle shared a tender moment on the dance floor as Jennifer Hudson sang Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together. Check out this amazing snapshot:

Basically, Michelle Obama’s dress was the most tweeted about topic of the ball. Michelle elegantly wore a red Jason Wu gown to the event. Michelle also wore a Jason Wu gown at her first inaugural ball in 2009, but wore white the first time around.

The night was surely filled with drunken debauchery. I can only imagine what some Congress members will be regretting in the morning as they fight off killer hangovers.

Alicia Keys wowed many with a spin on her song Girl on Fire.

She’s not kidding. Only Obama could turn Cheez-Its into fine dining.

Bill Nye, The Science Guy, was in attendance and all he could do was criticize the lighting. #scientistproblems

Last, but not least… this guy. Everyone had a great time except for him. For heaven’s sake, someone buy this kid a drink!
