It's one of the biggest weekends in the history of the US, duh, and for many people, it's a 4 day weekend.
Unless you've been hiding in an underground railroad, hole, on the moon, or in a coma, you know it's because it's INAUGURATION WEEKEND!
AKA BYE BYE George W. Bush and HELLOOOO Barack Obama!
To kick off the weekend, there was the "We Are One Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial" yesterday, which aired live on HBO.
I've been reading up on it, and looking at pictures from people at Fox 5, and it looked AMAZING.. And it's not even the big day yet.
Anyways, if you're like me, and don't have HBO, and/or were watching football all day yesterday (Go Cardinals!), have no fear! It'll be streaming on HBO.com at 1:00 or 9:30pm E/T today! Just click right here and then "Watch It Live Now" and you should be set!
A couple reasons why you should watch it: Beyonce, U2, Mary J. Blige, Garth Brooks, Usher, Stevie Wonder, Shakira, and Will.i.am are just SOME of the performances. Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Steve Carell, Jack Black, and Tiger Woods are just SOME of the people who make appearances. Not to mention, tons of pre-recorded messages from A-listers such as Ellen DeGeneres!!
So tune in. And sometime afterward, I'll have a whole review of the show for those of you that just don't have the time. :)
As always, feel free to tell me how YOU felt about the show, especially if you have already seen it, or were THERE!
