Barack And Michelle Obama Rock Out To Usher At BET Celebration

If there's anything that'll make people who love Barack and Michelle Obama even sadder than they already are with just a few months of their stay in the White House to go, it's another reminder of just how down-to-earth and cool they are.

How cool? I'm talking dancing-to-Usher-like-it's-2004-again cool.

Yeah, THAT cool.

That huge reminder of the Obamas' opulence came on Tuesday night when BET aired it's special, "Love & Happiness: An Obama Celebration."

The special was actually taped back in October when BET held the event on the South Lawn of the White House. To put it simply, it was pretty much the most lit party the White House has seen this year and a farewell to the first couple of these United States.

As Dave Chappelle put it on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, practically every cool black person was there — and Bradley Cooper.

The night was full of tributes to POTUS and FLOTUS. Samuel L. Jackson, for example, basically called him the coolest man on the planet (which, I mean, yeah).

There was also a speech from Angela Bassett, who paid tribute to Michelle Obama, saying,

You have been a beacon of light these past eight years. You have been a paragon of dignity in the face of the worst kind of politics. In the face of attacks and obstruction, you have been a reminder that the high road is the only road...

But nothing, and I mean nothing, tops the moment when President Obama got in the middle of a dance circle next to Usher and danced to Drake's "Hotline Bling."

Yeah, the Obamas are that cool.

These eight years passed by so quick.
