Stars out for Motown celebration

Seal, Nick Jonas, Sheryl Crow and Jamie Foxx were among the stars who attended the White House for a celebration of Motown music.

Jamie, Seal and Nick joining John Legend in launching the East Room concert celebrating the Motown sound with a high-energy medley in which the four took turns as backup dancers, complete with some smooth dance moves to the likes of Get Ready, The Way You Do the Things You Do, Can't Get Next to You and Ain't Too Proud to Beg.

Not to be outdone, the trio of Natasha Bedingfield, Jordin Sparks and Ledisi took a Supremes-esque turn singing Stop! In the Name of Love.

John delivered a soulful rendition of Heard It Through the Grapevine that left Jamie, who was also the show's host, to joke that nowadays the story was more likely to be "heard it through my Twitter."

"I'm going to tweet it right now," he joked.

President Barack Obama and the singers paid homage to the genuine Motown greats in the lineup: Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder.

Smokey teamed up with Sheryl to sing one of his earliest hits, You've Really Got a Hold On Me. And then he turned the stage over to "another guy who was here right from the beginning" - Wonder.

Wonder said he'd really just come to watch, but couldn't resist, performing You Are The Sunshine Of My Life and kicking off the finale that brought all the artists back on stage for Dancing In The Street.
