Earlier today Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America, and the first African American man to hold the office. And there were plenty of celebrities pumped up about the momentous occasion.

Hip Hop living legend Jay Z and his lovely songbird wife Beyonce Knowles were all about getting a taste of history in the making as they took in the sights and sounds of the Inauguration ceremony.

Also in the house was singer Sheryl Crow, who gave a killer performance at the pre-Inauguration festivities yesterday, along with Bruce Springsteen and U2.

And never to be left out, Sean “Diddy” Combs was spotted celebrating Barack’s big day alongside fellow well-wishers including Alicia Keys, Tobey Maguire and his wife, Jennifer Meyer.
