WASHINGTON--Went to the Kid's Inaugural at Washington Convention Center on Sunday night and I hate to say this, but I didn't get it.

There were a lot of young kids who were still riding on their father's shoulders, but the music was way over their heads.

After all, Usher, in his black leather jacket and pants, not to mention the bright red athletic shoes, isn't "Gabba Gabba."

He's the kind of performer who can make young teens like Malia swoon, but young kids are likely want to check out the restrooms.

Also on the bill: Katy Perry, Glee Cast Members and the Walt Whitman Soul Children of Chicago.
