WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) – It’s not exactly the Red Carpet ceremony, but President Barack Obama’s second-term inauguration has an unmistakable Hollywood look.

There was a loud cheer for Beyonce and Jay-Z as they took their places at the Capitol Monday to watch Obama take the public oath of office for his second term. The two stopped to chat with Rev. Al Sharpton.
