Beyonce Knowles warmed up for Super Bowl 2013 for President Obama

The Super Bowl Halftime Show for 2013 has a leading act in Beyonce Knowles and she got a little warm up this week by singing for President Barack Obama.

Beyonce looked stunning in a sparkling black dress as she performed at the inauguration of President Obama in Washington DC.

The 'Crazy In Love' singer wowed the crowd and was cheered on by fans and her devoted husband Jay-Z.

More on the performers...

Kelly Clarkson delivered a stunning performance at Barack Obama's inauguration yesterday as well.

Accompanied by the United States Marine Band, the 30-year-old singer overcame initial nerves to sing a rendition of 'My Country, 'Tis of Thee'.

She tweeted: "What an honor to be a part of history! Obama's presence was powerful and his words unforgettable. It's a proud day for America! (sic)"

A number of celebrities were quick to congratulate Kelly on her performance, with Bette Midler tweeting: " 'My Country Tis of Thee' never sounded better! Thank you @KellyClarkson & US Marine Band! (sic)"

Meanwhile, James Taylor delivered a touching acoustic-driven rendition of 'America the Beautiful'.

The 70-year-old member of the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame has been a big advocate of President Obama's re-election.

Later that night, Barack and his First Lady Michelle had their 'first dance' at the Commander-in-Chief's Ball, as Jennifer Hudson sang Al Green's 'Let's Stay Together'.

The couple then headed to the Inaugural Ball, where scheduled performers included Alicia Keys, FUN., members of the cast of 'Glee', Black Violin, Brad Paisley, Far East Movement, Katy Perry, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Usher, Smokey Robinson, Soundgarden and Maná.

Barack and Michelle again danced as Jennifer repeated her performance.
