He delivered a speech before the concert reflecting on all of the great musical acts that have made their way to the White House during his presidency.

After the speeches there is a video of Obama on the dance floor with Usher and Janelle Monáe. He can be seen in the middle of the crowd as everyone gets down to Drake's popular song Hotline Bling. As Obama's time in the White House comes to an end, he is certainly making the most of it and wrapping up his final events in style.
