BET Inaugural Ball

Politicians such as Colin Powell hobnobbed with celebs like Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, and Ashanti at BET’s Inaugural Ball at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. The former Secretary of State even got on the mic and sang with Wyclef Jean. We wonder who’s the better dance, Powell or Obama?
