State dinners are a White House tradition, in which the president and First Lady invite heads of state, diplomats, and yes, sometimes A-list entertainment talent to eat, drink, and mingle.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama carried out their very last state dinner on Tuesday night.

In addition to welcoming Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, the Obamas took in a number of notable stars, from Jerry Seinfeld to hip-hop heavyweights Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean.
