Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel had quite the eventful Tuesday. 

The "Suit and Tie" singer and his actress wife paid a visit to the White House today, and got to hang out with Barack and Michelle Obama, but it wasn't just to catch up on J.T.'s chart-topping album or talk politics.

Timberlake was part of an interactive student workshop "Soulsville, USA: The History of Memphis Soul," which was hosted by the first lady in the State Dining Room, and invited middle and high school students from around the country to take part.

"The White House is buzzing with excitement today as we celebrate the rhythmic groove of Memphis soul," Michelle Obama said, dressed in a buttercup yellow pantsuit and coral top. "Yes! Memphis is in the house!"

"Guess who @FLOTUSinvited to the #atTheWH today!? Watch the student workshop live stream starting 11am ET. -teamJT," the Memphis-native's team tweeted from his Twitter this morning. 

And it looks like Biel had a moment that she will cherish forever. "I hugged POTUS. I hugged POTUS. I hugged POTUS," she tweeted. One more time with feeling, Jessica.

Timberlake, along with musicians Sam Moore, Mavis Staples, Charlie Musselwhite and Ben Harper, all of whom were also present for the workship today, will be performing tonight for In Performance at the White House, which will be broadcast on PBS on April 16.
