UPDATE 1/19, 9:30 PM
Larry King opened tonight's show with a report from D.L. Hughley at the HuffPost's pre-inaugural ball at the Newseum in Washington D.C. Hughley detailed the many celebrities on the guest list saying "everybody's going to be here." King ended the segment by mentioning that he planned to stop by the party himself.
After a commercial break, King returned to the Newseum where Hughley briefly interviewed Arianna about the party.
Arianna had her hands full greeting as many of the 2,800 guests as she could. Here's a few moments from the exciting night.
Arianna, Sheryl Crow, Sting, and will.i.am counted down to midnight.
We'll be covering the ball with live video updates and highlights from the event, so be sure to follow the ball as it happens tonight from 9 p.m. to 1 .a.m. EST.
