Tom Hanks said that his "yes we can" moment was when Barack "changed all the rules" in regards to US-Cuban relations.

John Legend has been a part of Obama's presidency since before the start, as he performed at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Legend said in the video,

Ellen Degeneres, who was recently honored by Obama with a Medal of Freedom, said that making a skit with Michelle Obama was "pretty cool."

The talk show host added,

It's safe to say we'll miss Barack's dancing skills in the White House.
