Today's D.C. VIP: the Dutchess.
The annual event, expected to draw nearly 30,000, kicked off this morning with hundreds of children scouring the South Lawn looking for eggs. The Fergalicious one sang the national anthem after the president welcomed guests with a primer on the Egg Roll's history.
Fergie is set to grace the stage again later in the day as part of a free concert that will also feature Ziggy Marley, kiddie rockers SteveSongs and Imagination Movers, Jessica Jarrell, The Electric Company and the DC Youth Orchestra and Greenbelt SITY Stars.
Several celebs are also scheduled to join first lady Michelle Obama to read passages from children's tales on the storytime stage, including Home Alone bad guy Daniel Stern, Babe's James Cromwell and Mr. Fergie, Transformers star Josh Duhamel.
The event, which is being simulcast online at the White House website, concludes at 5 p.m. ET.
