President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have just a couple of weeks left on their lease in the White House, and they seem intent on going out in style. Last night, the POTUS and FLOTUS threw an epic all-night rager to celebrate the end of eight long years in office. Lasting until the early morning hours of Saturday, the party was a strictly VIP affair; Deadline reports that the star-studded guest list featured Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and other heavy-hitters in the entertainment industry. Also in attendance? Former Late Show host David Letterman, who was probably the only person who could get away with wearing a sweater.

Other revelers at the closed-door party reportedly included Bruce Springsteen, Chance the Rapper, John Legend, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul McCartney, Lena Dunham, and Samuel L. Jackson. SolangePharrell, and The Roots are rumored to have performed (via the Daily Mail), with Solange Instagramming a photo of herself on stage with the caption: “The sound check of life… 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.”

Damn. Wish we were invited.
