Beyoncé will sing for Barack and Michelle Obama’s first dance on inauguration night on Tuesday.

It is unknown which song she will perform for the President-elect and future first lady just yet. “It is our hope that we can keep the song secret until the moment,” Presidential Inaugural Committee spokeswoman Linda Douglass told The Associated Press.

Beyoncé is also part of the lineup for the official Neighborhood Ball that will air on ABC with performances by Jay-Z, will.i.am, Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Sting, Faith Hill, Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, and Maroon 5.

“I’m there. I can’t wait. I feel like all of us, we’re ready to do whatever we have to do. Whatever they want—if they need me to volunteer, they need me to sing, I’m there, and I’m ready. I’ve never been so patriotic! I’m just beyond excited,” the “Diva” said back in November.

UPDATE: Beyoncé has revealed that she will sing Etta James’ “At Last” during the new first couple’s first dance.

“To sing ‘At Last’ while [the Obamas] have their first dance is a dream come true,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.”

    this is not a televised event so who cares they could have chose Macy Gray and still no one would have known unless someone posted online like this. however, the most sought after gig was to perform “at the Inaugaration” not at an untelevised dinner. this is lame! and who cares who performs at the ball no ones listening no way-they’ll all be drunk by then, this is a slap in the face. but if Bey is happy im happy for her.

  9. tired of B

    First of all I like B as a peformer. what makes me so mad is when peolpe have their opinion about something people think that they are hatin. I\’m tired of B. she didn\’t do anything for the worl to get Obama where he is today. I feel like Tina Turner or Patti Labelle should have song the song. They actually grow up in the civil rights movement. B always wants the attention and when she was interviewe d after the song she had to say oh I\’m here and I sung. She always makes everything about her. She never went through hard times or slavery and again that was a slap in the face to have all those young singers there especially here. she knoe role model she gets naked to sing and dance. Again she is a wonderful performer but she doesn\’t have the age and and have\’nt live through the struggle.

  10. tired of B

    You could see her entire breats in that dress B had on and JayZ needed a hair cut and throw those glasses away
