The guest list at the Obamas' farewell party Friday night had as much star power as a Hollywood awards ceremony.

 

Outgoing President Barack Obama on Friday night hosted a farewell party at the White House which featured a guest list packed with A-listers.

Celebrities from actors to musicians flocked to the presidential soiree to honor the Obamas ahead of the transition to a Donald Trump administration on Jan. 20.

Attendees included Solange Knowles, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Jerry Seinfeld, Nick Jonas, Jordin Sparks, Usher, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, Jay Pharoah and Chance the Rapper, according to celebrity posts on social media.

“The sound check of life,” Knowles captioned a photo that showed her performing at the event. “Was truly the ultimate, ultimate honor. Can’t even put into words. Really. We will miss your excellence, your grace, and the phenomenal legacy you have let us all share.”

The A-list affair stood in contrast to the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump, who has struggled to find entertainers willing to perform at the event.

Meryl Streep, Paul McCartney, Tom Hanks, George and Amal Clooney, Stevie Wonder, Robert De Niro, George Lucas, Lena Dunham, David Letterman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bruce Springsteen, Chris Rock, Tyler Perry, Jason Sudeikis, Jon Hamm and Tracy Ellis Ross were also spotted arriving, according to CNN reporter Betsy Klein.

Musician-actor Nick Jonas posted on Instagram a photo of himself with his "Kingdom" co-star Jonathan Tucker, writing, "Straight off the plane to the White House."

Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Jay Pharoah posted a photo on Instagram of himself with singer Kelly Rowland, rapper Wale, Usher and NBA star Carmelo Anthony's wife La La Anthony, writing "All that Ebony at the White House Ayyyyyyyeeeee..We looking like the last episode of 106 & Park out this Bih??????."
