That Marc Anthony sure knows how to end his set.

The crooner completed his inaugural performance by bringing "my wife," Jennifer Lopez, on to the stage with him, for a duet.

This thrilled the crowd at the Inauguration's Western Ball, held in the largest ballroom of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, where the guests also included Angela Bassett and Harold & Kumar and House star Kal Penn, reports The Washington Post.

The 10:25 p.m. appearance of Lopez also further put to rest rumors of a marital rift between the couple.

Earlier in the evening, Anthony had said, "I wrote this next song about Jennifer. I must have been psychic." The song was his decade-old "You Sang to Me."

"She didn't get the point, but eventually it worked," said Anthony, the Associated Press reports.

The couple ended their duet with a kiss. "Man, she's cute," Anthony said after Lopez exited the stage.
