On Friday night, the Obamas will greet a star-studded list of celebrities for their final White House party.
Beyonce, who sang at the Inaugural Ball back in 2009 and performed the national anthem at the 2013 inauguration, will sing at the party. Her husband Jay Z, one of the president’s favorite rappers, is also expected to perform.
Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Bradley Cooper, George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Usher, and Oprah are also slated to attend the farewell bash.
CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King is on the guest list, as well as actor Samuel L. Jackson. Sir Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and David Letterman will also be there.
Chicago musician and one of President Obama’s favorite rising stars, Chance the Rapper, took to Twitter to confirm he will be attending.

The amount of A-listers attending the final Obama hosted party at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is a stark contrast to those expected to attend Donald Trump’s inauguration in exactly two weeks.
The president-elect is said to have been struggled gathering high profile talent to perform at his swearing-in on January 20.
Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion and Garth Brooks have all reportedly turned down a chance to play for the soon-to-be 45th president.
