Sure, their Dad will be sworn as the 44th President of the United States next week but guess what's even cooler: Malia and Sasha Obama get to see the Jonas Brothers live in concert!

The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Tuesday that the pop-rock trio will headline the Kids' Inaugural: We Are the Future concert, which honors military families, on Jan. 19 at the Verizon Center.

The Jonas Brothers – one of Sasha and Malia's favorite bands – will perform along with Miley Cyrus and her dad Billy Ray, Bow-Wow and Demi Lovato during a kid-friendly show hosted by Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden with special appearances by Rihanna, Usher and Shaquille O'Neal.

The concert will air on the Disney Channel at 8 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 19.

President-elect Barack Obama will get a chance to hear his own "musical hero" Stevie Wonder perform the next night at The Neighborhood Ball: An Inauguration Celebration, which will also feature performances by Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Faith Hill, Shakira, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys, the PIC confirmed Tuesday.

The live event, which will include the President and first lady's first dance of the night, will air live on ABC on Jan. 20 at 8 pm.
