After delivering his second inaugural address, reviewing the troops, and presiding over the inaugural parade, President Barack Obama concluded the first day of his last term with two inaugural balls. There, Obama thanked the troops and danced with his wife to Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of the Al Green classic, “Let’s Stay Together.”

What follow are some of the best photos from the star-studded evening:
