Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys at Inaugural Ball 2013

Which Inaugural Ball Siren Did It Best — Jennifer or Alicia?

No matter how you spin it, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys took a no-holds-barred approach to evening-gown glamour and the stage. Which is exactly why we're putting their fashionable fate in your hands. Jennifer performed in a body-hugging black halter gown, glitter-soled platform pumps, and voluminous waves to serenade the Obamas' first dance with a sweet rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." The flattering formfitting shape of the dress complemented her svelte silhouette but never felt too sexy for the event. While Jennifer's ensemble was totally breathtaking, if you're looking a jaw-dropper, then look no further than Alicia Keys's red beaded Michael Kors gown and matching red peep-toe heels. The songstress performed a remixed version of "Girl on Fire," called "Obama's on Fire," in a shimmery long-sleeved, ruched-bodice number that — while somewhat modest from the front — revealed a sexy cutout in the back. Her diamond drop earrings and diamond-encrusted bangles polished off her red-hot statement look. So, whose ensemble gets your vote: Jennifer's black, body-skimming gown or Alicia's beaded red one?
