Jennifer Hudson showed them how it's done at the Commander in Chief's Ball tonight. President Barack Obama danced with first lady Michelle Obama as Hudson cut loose with a rousing rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."
That song and Obama are not strangers.
The last time Obama met that song in public was a year ago, at a fundraiser at New York's famed Apollo Theater. He crooned a few bars, to the delight of the crowd. Then he joked he'd survived the Sandman — a reference to Sandman Sims, the tap dancer who chased unpopular acts offstage at the Apollo for decades.
Also: Here's what you've undoubtedly been looking for — a picture of the first lady and her gown.
