The night before becoming America's next first daughters, Malia and Sasha Obama got toasted by tweens. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers were among the acts that performed at the Kids' Inaugural Concert, an invitation-only event for military families and other area children at the Lincoln Memorial on Monday. Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, offered small waves to the crowd before taking their seats in the front row with their J. Crew-clad mother, Michelle Obama, and Vice President-elect Joe Biden's four granddaughters.

Look back at photos of all the first children.

"What an amazing show," Michelle Obama -- who also signed autographs -- told the crowd. "You kids are the future of this great nation. At this moment in our nation's history, we wanted you to be able to join in this celebration." The crowd went wild for the Jonas Brothers.

Both Malia and Sasha jumped up when the boys took the stage and started clapping. They danced along with their mom and Biden's grandchildren. Sasha even took several steps ahead of Michelle to take a picture. She was working the camera as the boys, one by one, walked to the section of the stage nearest to them.

The girls were equally excited about Lovato as they sang along to her songs. They also laughed as George Lopez took the stage and cracked jokes with the crowd. Another show highlight? Miley Cyrus. She dedicated her inspirational tune "The Climb" to the Obama daughters. "You girls must be awfully proud of your dad — and so am I," said Cyrus, who sang with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, on stage. After her performance, an out-of-breath Cyrus got off stage to shake hands with the Obama girls.
