Beyonce dominated 2013 and it looks like the Queen B isn’t giving up the top spot in 2014.  According to Today News, Beyonce performed for First Lady Michelle Obama at her 50 birthday party.  

A birthday party to celebrate Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday took place at the White House, and it was studded with stars, including Magic Johnson, Stevie Wonder and Gayle King. Guests were treated to performances by Beyoncé and John Legend.

The gala for Mrs. Obama, who hit the mid-century mark on Friday, promised “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert,” according to a leaked invitation. Guests were encouraged to wear comfy shoes and eat before they arrived.

 

“There’s one thing I can tell you for sure … people will move,” senior White House adviser and close Obama friend Valerie Jarrett told The Associated Press before the party.

Over the past year, numerous rumors circulated about Beyoncé agreeing to perform at the party. Beyoncé has a longstanding relationship with the Obamas. She serenaded the couple during the president’s first inaugural ball in 2009, and last year, she performed at his swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol.

Although White House staffers were extraordinarily tight-lipped about party details, President Obama did reveal one birthday gift he gave his wife. Earlier this month, the first lady stayed an extra week in Hawaii after the family left their 15-day island vacation to return home.

As the party began to wind down Saturday, musician Smokey Robinson said, “We were here for the first lady’s birthday and that was the highlight, and the president gave a wonderful, wonderful speech about her, and then Beyoncé performed and wow.”

  • Did they let Jay-Z back in? I feel that they cut the Carter-Knowles after that stupid rap song.
