ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) French President Francois Hollande arrived at the White House on Tuesday (February 11) to fanfare and pageantry as President Obama and the First Lady greeted him before an elaborate state dinner. The White House had invited about 350 guests. Some of the celebrity guests included 'American Hustle' actor Bradley Cooper and Emmy award winning actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, comedian Stephen Colbert and many others. The White House kept the guest list under wraps, along with who will sit at the head table, but revealed that soul singer Mary J. Blige will perform after the dinner. It is only the seventh such gala hosted by Obama and his wife Michelle since they moved into the White House in 2009.
