President Obama and the First Family lit the 2010 National Christmas Tree on Thursday Dec. 9 on the Ellipse in Washington, D.C.
The event was hosted by hip-hop artist and actor Common, who was joined by the likes of B.B. King, Maroon 5, Sara Bareilles, Miss America Caressa Cameron, Ingrid Michaelson and more.
And the Obamas are appreciative.
But maybe Sasha likes Santa better.
Here’s “America’s Got Talent” runner-up Jackie Evancho. We imagine she’s thinking, “Booyah, Michael Grimm! Who has two thumbs and is singing for the POTUS and Santa? This girl!” Or something like that.
Michelle Obama reads a holiday story to the kids, but she can’t compete with the tree. Dude, it’s huge.
