A Beautiful Night in Pictures!

Heart and soul. The Obama's are the most beautiful couple in the World!








The President thanked Led Zeppelin for behaving themselves at the White House, since they have a reputation for "hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around."



Hoffman got ribbed about Robert Redford, the competitor for his first onscreen and career-making role in The Graduate.




The President was more serious as he described Guy's career, telling the tale of "the humble country boy who used to milk cows on a farm outside Baton Rouge" who is now "one of the last guardians of the great American blues." The 76-year-old legend is the son of a sharecropper, and made his first guitar out of window screen wires,


Makarova, he said "remains as humble as ever -- once saying, Im never proud of what Ive done. Sometimes, Im not ashamed.

"So thank you, Natalia, for the understatement of the century," the President said.



The honorees were feted on Saturday night with a State Department dinner, hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

10. Absolutely!

We are so lucky to have those two powerful, great couples at the head of our country!

I hope Hillary runs in 2016. . .It will be nice to have her as the first Woman president, and to have Bill back in the White House.

And I'm certain that the Obamas would feel really good about leaving the White House in the hands of the Clintons. . .again!

5. Love Buddy Guy.

Glad to see him honored.

One of my first dates w/ my late husband was to the Shrine Auditorium in LA to see Makarova perform. She was breath taking.

6. Thanks sheshe! I love that group photo with the Clintons this time

Here what Hillary had to say about Letterman..

Clinton also took special note of Letterman, saying he must be wondering what he's doing in a crowd of talented artists and musicians.

"Dave and I have a history," she said. "I have been a guest on his show several times, and if you include references to my pant suits, I'm on at least once a week."

11. He looks like Johnny Carson there.

Which is weird, cause he normally looks like Dick Van Dyke.
