President Obama Snubbed By Legendary Singer Al Green!?

He did what?!

Snubbed is perhaps too harsh a term, but Al Green had the opportunity to sing at Barack Obama's inaugural ball on Monday and the legendary crooner DECLINED!

Boooo!! We would have LOVED to have seen him! If the 66-year-old icon didn't feel like singing, he could've at least paid lip service to his Commander-in-Chief by pulling a fabulous Beyoncé, LOLz!

So why didn't he do it? Apparently it was a scheduling conflict — Al had prior commitments.

Aww, the President must have felt so dissed!

Thankfully, Jennifer Hudson picked up the slack with her wonderful rendition of Al's biggest hit, Let's Stay Together!

Get it, gurl!!

Jennifer Hudson Is A Stylish Singer At The Inaugural Ball

Where was our invite to the Dreamgirls reunion!?

Jennifer Hudson had the distinct honor of performing at the Commander-In-Chief's Inaugural Ball last night in Washington DC.

The Oscar-winner looked divine in a classic black gown and glittery Charlotte Olympia pumps as she performed Al Green's Let's Stay Together for Barack and Michelle Obama's first dance.

How freaking cool is that?!

Her raven tresses were a mass of luscious curls and her makeup was beautifully understated.

Congrats, Jen!
