We not only just finished wiping the last tear from our eyes after witnessing our President take the oath into his second presidential term and deliver an inspiring speech to the American people, but also from thinking about some of the most silly and shocking moments of the 2013 Presidential Inauguration!
First off, let's just get this out of the way… Beyoncé absolutely SLAYED the National Anthem and judging by her reaction when it was all done (above), gurlfriend knew it!
Now, on to the rest of our list of the most HIGHlarious, Memorable & WTF Moments Of The 2013 Presidential Inauguration!
Poor Sasha Obama! Even her cute little coat and freezing D.C. temps couldn't keep her awake during her booooring dad's inaugural ceremony. Sorry, Sasha fierce! Maybe next time, the White House can get Justin Bieber to host all further political ceremonies!
Meanwhile, older sis Malia was too busy poppin' and lockin' for Michelle to notice how bored her 11-year-old sister was. Now, THAT'S a great way to keep awake!
Only the Queen B can make tearing out your ear piece look so fierce and divalicious! Get it, Bey! Work that piece like nobody's business!
Oh, and did we mention that Kelly Clarkson and Beyoncé were just, like, chattin' it up backstage at the Capitol before their performances? NBD, whatevs!
Me and B just hangin' out ….don't worry about it. Seriously, God did good. She is so beautiful! twitter.com/kelly_clarkson…

Speaking of which, looks like a certain former president (*cough*Bill Clinton*cough*) was just as starstruck by the Since U Been Gone singer. Nice photobomb, sir!
(And, watch all of Kelly's AH-mazing performance of My Country Tis Of Thee HERE!)
Talking about WTF photobombs, oh, it's just Paul Ryan fangirling behind Jay and Bey….
We love our prez, but oops…he did it again. He somehow managed to flub his oath for the SECOND TIME! Watch it all go down (below)!
And lastly, after Katy Perry performed at the 2013 Kids' Inaugural Concert, she later gave a shout out to the most memorable moment of the 2009 Presidential Inauguration, posting a TwitPic of an absolutely adorbsies teeny tiny Aretha Franklin bow hat that overshadowed the entire ceremony:
