Whether you were stuck in your office or hiding under the covers nursing a hangover because you got a little carried away while celebrating your Monday off, there's a good chance you may have missed President Barack Obama's second inauguration this morning.

In summary, Beyoncé, James Taylor, and Kelly Clarkson sang, James Franco read a weird poem, and President Obama addressed the country. Here are the clips you need to watch so you can pretend you spent your morning being culturally and politically aware.

Beyoncé sings the National Anthem.

James Taylor sang "America the Beautiful."

Kelly Clarkson sings "My Country 'Tis of Thee."

James Franco reads a poem.

President Obama addresses the country.
