WATCH: President Barack Obama's 2013 Inauguration, Inaugural Balls

Barack Obama ceremonially took the oath of office this morning (he was officially sworn in Sunday, per the Constitution)...

... then delivered a truly progressive inaugural speech.

Mrs Carter, dripping om 130 carats of emeralds, slayed The Star-Spangled Banner. (Update: She lip-synced.)

At the luncheon following the swearing in, first lady Michelle Obama served up some mean eye rolls to house speaker John Boehner.

Then later in the night, the president and Michelle Obama (in a Jason Wu gown) were serenaded by Jennifer Hudson.

While we're not surprised, Jamie Foxx and another man sung Ray Charles' "I Can't Stop Loving You" to each other for vice president Joe Biden and second lady Dr Jill Biden. HUD!

Alicia Keys was there, too. She changed the words of her recent single to "Obama's on on Fire."

PS: If you want to see the complete 2013 inauguration ceremony, here it is:
