Michelle Obama isn't turning 50 until next year, but don't worry — she's already got her party plans under control. 

The First lady has enlisted superstars Adele, who picked up an Oscar for Best Song this year, and Beyonce, of Super bowl and Inauguration fame, to sing her into the big 5-0 on January 17, 2014. 

The Obamas have clearly gotten over Beyonce's lip-sync mishap, which means the rest of the world should too.

The first couple also plan to pay for the party's expenses out-of-pocket, since it's a private fete, not a State one, RTE News reported

According to a source, "Adele has graciously accepted and waived her usual fee for the high-profile private performance. She will sing a selection of her most-loved hits for the First Lady and her friends," the Daily Mail reported

How sweet of you, Adele!  

As for Beyonce, her fangirl video letter clearly continues to work wonders:
