    [AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais] Last night, President Obama and Mick Jagger and friends partied in the White House East Room, which was converted into a blues club for "Red, White and Blues." The party celebrated blues music, which was a very appropriate nod to New Orleans' Fat Tuesday without getting religious or...ya know...Bourbon-Street-y.

    Everyone's favorite part was when Mick Jagger handed President Obama the mic to sing "Sweet Home Chicago."

    The concert will air on PBS stations nationwide on Monday.
