I found this video on MTV. At about the 6 minute mark the First Lady walked up and said, "Mr. President, you didn't tell Beyoncé about 'Single Ladies'? Your rendition?"
"This is incredible, right?" Legend said looking out into the audience of tens of thousands who crowded around the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial for the all-star show. "It's overwhelming," Beyoncé added, as Legend encouraged her to "break into 'Single Ladies' right now."
Things got better a few minutes later, as Obama was giving warm hugs to B, Blige and Latifah. Michelle Obama walked up and said, "Mr. President, you didn't tell Beyoncé about 'Single Ladies'? Your rendition?"
The Commander in Cool laughed and said, "I'm not like Justin [Timberlake]; I didn't put on the outfit," referring to JT's now-infamous "Single Ladies" turn in a leotard on "Saturday Night Live." "[But] I didn't want my girls thinking that I couldn't, you know ... I got a little something."
A video shot by someone in John Legend's crew and posted on the Vibe magazine web site shows a long line of star-struck and emotional stars giddily waiting in the cold to meet Barack Obama, among them: Legend, Sheryl Crow, Queen Latifah, Tom Hanks, Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige.
