Beyonce will sing Barack and Michelle Obama's first dance song on inauguration night.

Huge score!

Unfortunately, the song she'll be singing has not been announced.

A Presidential Inaugural Committee spokeswoman said, "It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment."

Beyonce is part of the star-studded cast of the official Neighborhood Ball that will be televised on ABC.

Mr. Bey, Jay-Z, will take part in the festivities as well.

We hope the song is our fave Beyowulf tune, Crazy in Love!!

    I read this unfortunate news hrs ago.. Sad to hear that our beloved president to be will be subjected to the fucking shrills of this bullshit as singer…



  12. 12

    Lol…why not call John Mellancamp, the one that endorsed his ass all over, or Bruce Springsteen….the other fool?!?! Ohhhh, they are too white…



  13. 13

    Wow, that's cool. I can't wait to watch it. TD, can't be more star-studded and pricey than the Reagans. Puh-leez!

    the commercialization of the presidency begins!!!



  17. 17

    If what I read is true, shame on you beyoncé. Did you or did you not abandon your dog at your recording studio offices ? The employees take care of him, waiting for the day when you will pick him up, it's been 6 months now ! Botch !



  18. 18

    Who cares about Be-on-shit…



  19. 19

    i hear you Swan. but still, it's becoming like the Oscars or something. you can't go one freakin' day w/o hearing some celebrity brag how they're going to "be there". just another photo op.



  20. 20

    She has a huge fat ass.



  21. 21

  23. 23

    Crazy in Love??? While it's a fun song, it's hardly classy enough for this event! Grow up.



  24. 24

    yawn, how much did her daddy pay for her to be in it? they were desperate to get her there to perform and the Obamas were not interested, I guess her dad made some mad arrangament$$$ with one of the producers of the event. Lame…this ho will bring nothing but shame and ghettoness to the white house.



  25. 25

    Re: orchidgirl – Goodbye Orchid.. And don't worry about LG anymore.. She's a lost cause… I am elated to say she is making a fool of herself….

  27. 27

    Re: tasty dish – agreed…..tally so far $160,000,000……but we will be expected to step up and sacrifice for the good of the nation…..or should i say forced to sacrifice…..makes me want to puke



  28. 28

    She should sing Crazy in Love, she needs to think long term with this, and that song will stand the test of time. If she sings some obscure new song, that'd show one big ego.



  31. 31

    wowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowow i SERIOUSLY THINK THAT BEYONCAYYYY SHUD BE A aKTRESZ iNSZTED OF A SINGER



  32. 32

    Can't believe the Pres-Elect picked this opportunistic thief to sing at the Inauguration. Maybe the bitch will sing one the many songs she's stolen and called her own claiming she wrote them like Irreplaceable or If I Were A Boy.



  33. 33

    Well, she's been pushing for it really hard. She kept saying on all the entertainment shows that Obama should call her to have her sing at his inauguration.

    Although, I'd really rather they'd asked someone like Aretha Franklin, who is a living legend, or someone like John Mellencamp or Bruce Springsteen.

  37. 37

    fuck tard



  38. 38

    I hope its NOT "Crazy in Love"….as a matter of fact I hope she doesnt sing any of her ballads. It'd be nice to hear something classic like Etta James, "At Last"….or some Billie Holiday. I'm not big on Beyonce….and if I could have it my way, Adele or Duffy would perform for Mr. and Mrs. President.



  39. 39

    I agree that I DO NOT like how this becoming some kind of celebrity star studded event. Especially since Beyonce did not do anything big to get people registered to vote, she does NOT care about common people and are problems. She only wants to be apart of this to help boost her ego. I think a common voter, who could sing, should have gotten the chance to do some things. I do like Beyonce but I dont like how she has to be in everything. Heck she made 82 milli last year, pay some peoples mortgages! I didn't buy her album because I am a state employee who, due to the economy, did not get the raise we were promised and my rent went up! I can not afford to buy music, see movies, or take a nice vacation. But I voted for change and I know what it is like to struggle financially. SHE DOES NOT!!!

    Re: mamajud – Hi, mamajud!



  42. 42

    I'm going to have to leave DC and go to LA since all the celebutards are coming here. Gah…I hope they don't stay long.

    Re: stcjanell – amen



  44. 44

    Is there anything to the rumor that she is tossing in a few free BJ's after the show?



  45. 45

    I love that she stood like that the entire night, her stylist must have told her that its the only way to pose when your arms are big because it makes em look small.



  46. 46

    Wow. That's really unfortunate. I find her repulsive.



  47. 47

    she should sing the jefferson's theme song, "Movin on Up"



  48. 48

    what a joke.

    Re: The One. The Only. MILK – You took the words right out of my sickend mouth.

    Re: stcjanell
    Absolutely excellent points. It would actually be smarter to have a community group choir perform, than Beyonce, Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers. Good grief, who put the list of performers together?! I understand Bono, because he has fought for human rights for decades, but pop stars?

    Although I just saw the list of all performers and it includes Aretha and Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Mary J. Blige, which I see as more suited to perform at an inauguration.



  51. 51

    awesome i hope she performs her song Halo or Diva i hope its not relating tot hem cause then she would do proud to be an american but expect the unexpected its Beyonce-The Best



  52. 52

    I heard that Oprah plans on going down on both Mickey and Barack that night.



  53. 53

    These celebs are so up their own ass that I bet they have no idea what the hell they're celebrating…they'er acting like its the fucking Oscars or something… :-(



  54. 54

    She'll sing AT LAST, by someone I am not sure of (Etta James?) She even said so during an interview. I can't stand this fat fur-whore.



  55. 55

    *they're*



  56. 56

    Oh not her! It wasn't like her ego wasn't massive enough already! Now she's going to think she's the greatest fucking singer in the entire world!
    Her ego will then begin to multiply geometrically. Soon it will develop its' own nation and attempt to take over smaller nations. It will then procure its' own selection of nuclear arms and doomsday will quickly follow!

    Re: Phil-dohRe: The Dangler – lmao loooooooooooooooooooooooool i love Beyonce but looooooooooooooool that was hilarious but ur a hater Bitch and beyonce is the best so back off



  58. 58

    J Huds turned down this for the SuperBowl? Beyonce must be happy!



  59. 59

    I bet the song is "who let the dogs out"…hahahaha



  60. 60

    She's going to sing the Jefferson's theme song



  61. 61

    Re: Phil-doh – hahaha, SCORE ~ you guessed exactly right ~ and she butchered "at last" so badly that i am sorta happy to see that she is going to attempt to sing, live, a song that's so clearly out of her league.



  62. 62

    Is Beyonce and Micheal J. Fox going to Blue Diamond Inaugural Ball?



  63. 63

    Is Beyonce and Micheal J. Fox going to Blue Diamond Inaugural Ball? I also just heard that Tyler Perry (Madea) is coming with Wyclef to the Green Inaugural Ball.

    I heard it was "OLE BLACK MAGIC". The magic will be that Obanana does not sell the USA with a bunch of his liberal morons, like when Tip O'neil was running the government.



  66. 66

    ANY WHITES SINGING?



  67. 67

    Oh NOOOO why would someone want Obama and Michelle deaf???
    B is sooo overrated, she needs to stop yelling that much, her last records are just pure yelling and computer arranged… she used to be a good performer back in the DC's days…



  68. 68

    its politics not hollywood? is obama just biding his time before he star collaborating with jay-z? does he just want to be a big ol celeb?
    also… kind of amusing how everyone involved is black, i can say this because i am black. hmm,

    fuck you, from france.



  69. 69

    She'll be singing At Last by Etta James!!!!



  70. 70

    it has been said through the grapevine that beyonce will be singing, 'at last' for the obama's first dance together….however it was supposed to be kept a secret…cat's outta the bag ladies and gentz



  71. 71

    She had to beg to get it. remember she was going on and on about wanting to sing at the inaugural? I guess they finally relented and gave it to her. Therefore technically it wasn't an invite she just houndd them to death, to make herself feel a part of. I wish they had refused her request but oh well.
