Some were able to contain their excitement until after the event ended.

"Leaving the White House after the celebration of President Obama’s birthday. His last birthday as President," Reverend Al Sharton wrote.

Tonight was a night I will never forget. #BarackObama #happybirthday,” Nick Jonas -- taking a break from his tour with Demi Lovato -- simply stated after the party.
