Sasha and Malia are officially the nation's First Tweens.

The Obama girls along with the first lady -- and a cabal of Chicago friends and White House staffers -- attended the Beyonce concert last night at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., for at least a portion of the pop diva's show, ABC News reported.    

Several concert-goers Tweeted around 8:40 p.m. that screams of excitement erupted in the Center when they found out First Lady Michelle Obama and the girls came to support Beyonce, reported Fab Empire.

The girls even got a shout out.

"This is for Sasha and Malia!" the bedazzled pop queen said before belting out her hit single "Single Ladies." During the song, President Obama was caught on video doing the dance.

It's not the first time Beyonce has serenaded the Obamas. During Obamas' first dance as first couple on inauguration night, the pop singer sang Etta James' "At Last" as the two shared a tender moment on stage.

At last night's show, Beyonce once again sang “At Last,” during which a video of the first couple on Inauguration night was shown.

Beyonce told Vogue magazine earlier this year she thought Michelle Obama was a role model for girls.

"She told me she was very happy that her girls have someone like me to look up to," Beyonce told the magazine. "And I'm like, 'Oh, my God.' You have to feel fortunate to be one of the people whom parents don't mind their children looking up to."

Beyonce aired a video montage featuring Shane Mercado, Justin Timberlake and Barack Obama singing along to her hit "Single Ladies" to kick off the U.S. portion of her "I Am..." tour in New York on Saturday, according to Rolling Stone
