HipHollywood has exclusively obtained the set list from Ne-Yo’s big performance at the White House state dinner for China on Friday night and it is everything you would ever want it to be.
The singer hit the stage following a lavish dinner inside the East Room and performed several classic hits. The entire set list included: “Because of You,” “Nobody,” “So Sick,” “Ribbon in the Sky (cover),” “Miss Independent,” and “Time of our Lives.”
Ne-Yo’s mother, Lorraine, who stunned in a long, silver beaded gown, accompanied the singer, who is expecting a baby with longtime girlfriend, Crystal Renay.
And while Ne-Yo served as the night’s entertainment, it was Michelle Obama’s exquisite gown that really stole the show. FLOTUS arrived to the soiree in an incredible, custom black Vera Wang mermaid gown, a look that Wang herself could not ignore.

And if amazing singing and a gorgeous First Lady isn’t enough, the menu for the evening was spectacular.
President Obama, Michelle, Chinese President Xi Jinping and dozens of other guests reportedly feasted on lobster, poached in butter and served with traditional rice noodle rolls embedded with spinach, shiitake mushrooms and leeks prepared by Chinese-American chef Anita Lo and White House executive chef, Cristeta Comerford.
According to the White House, the meal was inspired by autumn and highlights “American cuisine with nuances of Chinese flavors.”
