Today’s presidential inauguration was a magnificent affair full of pomp, circumstance, and perhaps most importantly, cuteness. But which moments of the multi-hour ceremony were the cutest? My first thought was “James Franco’s poem, obviously,” but believe it or not, that wasn’t officially part of it, so here are my five runners-up.

4. The face Bill Clinton made behind Kelly Clarkson was similarly cute, but less in a “dear old uncle” kind of way and more a “friend’s dad you secretly want to bang” way:
3. The moment you realized Michelle, Sasha and Malia Obama had color coordinated their coats, gloves, and scarves with one another:

BONUS: Here’s the full video of Beyonce powering through technical difficulties to sing the most perfect version of “The Star Spangled Banner” that anyone’s ever heard. More bad ass than cute, but I feel like you need to see it.
