Every year, the White House Correspondents Dinner is the biggest night in Washington, D.C., promising the most celebrity appearances and parties to hit the nation’s capital outside of Barack Obama’s Inauguration. Celebs need to be invited to the black tie dinner by a news organization, which makes for some seriously funny bedfellows. But a ticket to the event is a seriously hard thing to come by, so celebs are happy to cozy up to just about anyone — hello Kim Kardashian and Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. Other celebs on hand to watch Jay Leno‘s painful performance included Justin Bieber (not even old enough to vote!), Jessica Simpson, Gabourey Sidibe, Kristin Davis, the Jonas Brothers with Demi Lovato and Jessica Alba, who raced down to D.C. after completing the Revlon Run/Walk for breast cancer with Halle Berry and Trey Songz in New York earlier in the day.
