Justin Timberlake Performed “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” at the White House, and Got the President to Sing Along

Justin Timberlake performed for Barack and Michelle Obama at a White House event on Tuesday night, to celebrate Memphis soul music.

He sang Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay” .and got everyone to join in at the end, including Obama.  The full concert airs next Tuesday on PBS.

Here’s video.  He asks the President join in at the 4:00 mark. Obama does SING, or at least he mouths the words, but unfortunately he wasn’t mic’d, so you can’t actually hear him.

Obama probably WAS singing. Remember when he sang a few bars of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together”?  And just for fun, here’s an old video someone made, which has Obama “singing” Justin’s “SexyBack”.

Here’s another video from the White House event. At the 1:30 mark, Obama nominates Justin to sing at the wedding of one of his staffers.

Also, what happened to all those dire predictions about government cuts and the ‘sequester’? Remember how criminals were going run free, and the TSA would suffer?  But there’s money for a Justin Timberlake concert at the White House???
