If you’re upset about the results of the presidential election, BET is here to remind you that President Obama, perhaps the coolest president we’ve had so far, has not yet left the White House. Last night, BET aired Love & Happiness: An Obama Celebration, otherwise known as that celebration with a lot of black stars and Bradley Cooper that Dave Chappelle talked about in his SNL monologue. It was truly a glorious event. Savor some of the highlights below.

Obama kicked things off with an emotional speech.

Angela Bassett praised Michelle and Barack’s love for each other. Really, it’s all too much to bear.

Leslie Odom Jr. performed a Hamilton-style rap.

Usher got everyone on their feet.

Common brought out the praise.

The night capped off with a whole bunch of stars accompanying Barack and Michelle in a rendition of Al Green’s “Love and Happiness.”
