America has a president who not only knows Beyonce’s song “Single Ladies,” but has seen the “Saturday Night Live” spoof of the video featuring Justin Timberlake as a background dancer, and has even mastered the song’s hand flip choreography.
As the Obama family took time out to greet each performer from the “We Are One” concert at the Lincoln Memorial, one of the artists, John Legend, had a video camera rolling to capture the entire experience for his Web site.
While speaking with Beyonce, Michelle Obama is seen on the film saying to her husband, “Mr. President, you didn’t’ tell Beyonce about ‘Single Ladies’? Your rendition?” Obama laughed and said, “I’m not like Justin. I didn’t put on the outfit. …[But] I didn’t want my girls thinking that I couldn’t, you know…I got a lil something.” He then flips his hand back and forth and said, “This part, I got.”
The rest of Legend’s video, lasting just under 12 minutes, shows such artists as Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Josh Groban, Tom Hanks, James Taylor, Sheryl Crow and Forest Whitaker standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial anxiously awaiting the handshake and/or pound/hug from the new president.
