Beyonce & Bono to Play for Barack

Beyonce and Bono will headline the group of entertainers slated to kick off Barack Obama‘s presidential inaugural festivities in Washington D.C. next Sunday during the “We are One” celebration. Garth Brooks, Sheryl Crow, Josh Groban, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen and Usher will also be performing, among others.

Beyonce will also be singing for the Obama‘s first dance after the inauguration.

The actual presidential inauguration will occur on Tuesday, January 20th.

WHAT SONG DO YOU THINK Beyonce will bust out for Barack?

UPDATE: Beyonce will be singing “At Last”! She said, “I am so honored that I will be performing for President Obama and the First Lady. To sing ‘At Last’ while they have their first dance is a dream come true. I could not be more honored and excited that they have asked me to be part of this moment in history.”

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    Beyonce is boring, annoying and her voice is ugly! NOOOOOOOO! Why did Jennifer Hudson change her mind again? Oh, right, she’s still mourning her loss.

  • ..

    You can say you dont like her or find her boring but you cant deny the woman sure has got talent!!and deserves 100000% to be on that stage!! You try to do what she does i think you wouldn’t last a second in the game

  • lakers fan in boston

  • mspin

    ugh why cant’t these stupid celebs just stay out of these political events, they mean nothing to us regular folks

  • hothothot

    why not Jennifer Hudson, she’s a Chicago lady???

  • ace tomato

    wtf. The Celebrity Machine that is Obama is formidable. Last time Beyonce was on this level she was served up to Robert DeNiro on a silver platter for his Lifetime Achievement or whatever award. He looked bored.

  • sharron Sadacca

    I will have lost all respect for Beyonce if Etta James is not on that stage performing “AT LAST” with Beyonce swooning with the rest of us! Pleas show some respect!!!!!!!!!

  • Halli

    WHy Beyonce? Iike her but someone who has a smoother singing voice would have been more tasteful.

    I think it was supposed to be Jennifer Hudson. Poor thing, I think she is still really damaged by what happened to her family.

  • Esther

    Beyonce, you suck on “At Last”. Leave the song to the one and only Etta James.
