Mike Myers Serenades Obamas At The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize Ceremony (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The 4th annual Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song was awarded to Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and funnyman Mike Myers helped honor the two songwriters by singing their hit, "What's New Pussycat" along with some signature charisma and dancing.

With President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama sitting front-row center, it makes for a pretty memorable performance.

The award celebrates lifetime achievement for artists who use song to promote musical expression and cultural understanding, but manages to have a little fun along the way (there's a surprise ending!).

The celebration also included performances by Sheryl Crow, Diana Krall and Stevie Wonder.

It airs Monday, May 21 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS.
