Watch the Obamas Get Down to Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Barack and Michelle Obama were seen enjoying themselves during a stop on the Carters' "On the Run II" tour.

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were spotted getting all the way into Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s performance on Saturday night, during a stop on their “On the Run II” tour.

Fellow concertgoers filmed the Obamas dancing from their box seats at FedEx Field in Landover, M.D., and as you might imagine the video evidence was posted everywhere, as lucky fans were eager to share how their night was made even more special than expected.

It is no secret that the Obamas are big fans of Beyoncé and Jay-Z. During the 2008 campaign, Obama noted that Jay-Z was on his iPod.

Beyoncé performed at the first couple’s inaugural dance in 2009, as well as at the presidential inauguration in 2013, and partnered with Michelle Obama for her “Let’s Move” campaign, aimed at fighting the childhood obesity epidemic.

The former first lady was also filmed dancing with Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, at another stop on the tour, in Paris, two weeks ago.

Even more dancing lies ahead, in the compilation of fan-made videos below.
