While President-elect Donald Trump struggles to find celebrities to perform at his inauguration, President Obama's farewell party was filled with A-list stars.

While President-elect Donald Trump was putting together a sad, sad list of people who have agreed to perform at his inauguration (which is just 16-year-old "America’s Got Talent" runner-up Jackie Evancho and The Rockettes so far), President Barack Obama was busy partying with all the cool kids on the block.

Literally.

With the new commander-in-chief’s inauguration just around the corner, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama threw a glamorous farewell party at White House and a number high-profile celebrities showed up to say their goodbyes.

Attendees included George Clooney and Amal Clooney, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Bradley Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Robert De Niro, George Lucas, Jerry Seinfeld, Al Sharpton, Solange, Usher, Harvey Weinstein, Anna Wintour, Magic Johnson, Lorne Michaels, Nick Jonas, Chris Rock, Stevie Wonder, Lena Dunham, Jordin Sparks, Bruce Springsteen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracy Ellis Ross, Steve Harvey, Paul McCartney, Tyler Perry, Gloria Estefan, Jon Hamm and Meryl Streep, to name a few.

Even Jay Pharoah, who parodied the president on “Saturday Night Live,” was present at the star studded event.

And Chance the rapper was, justifiably, excited.

He also met Reverend Al Sharpton and the two of them discussed Al Sharpton’s bio-pic.
