WATCH: Lady Gaga Performs At Obama’s Staff-Only Inaugural Ball

We don’t know about you, but we were so caught up in the excitement of Monday’s inaugural balls (and, of course, that inaugural gown) that we forgot that last night held even more excitement in the capital. President Obama honored thousands of White House and campaign staffers at one final celebration Tuesday night, and enlisted what he called a “couple of people who are pretty good musicians — Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.”

There was no media allowed in the event, but through the tweets, Instagrams, and cell phone videos, it’s clear that this was the party of the year. No small feat, given that it’s only January.

Gaga took the stage in a peroxide blonde bouffant wig and white, laced-up dress with eyeball-esque shoulder and hip embellishments. According to reports, when Obama mentioned the musicians, Michelle “danced with her arms,” prompting the Prez to quip “It’s been a long weekend. She’s getting a little silly now.”
