Niall Horan, Katy Perry, Tyler Oakley and Drake are among the stars paying tribute to the outgoing President.

The internet has been reacting to President Obama's final days in the job, paying tribute to the work he's done over the last eight years as well as generally getting their feelings out as he prepares to depart.

President Barack Obama gave his final speech in office last night (January 11th), thanking those who've supported him and asking the American to, once again, believe they can create change in the world.



Regardless of your political persuasion, there's no denying that this man is a seriously inspiring speaker.

And it looks like we won't be the only ones missing Barack when he leaves next week, with many famous faces taking to social media to express their gratitude.

Here's just a few of the musicians, YouTubers and other celebrities tweeting about Obama today:








We're not crying, you are!

As if that wasn't enough, the First Lady Michelle Obama also found time to break our hearts all over again with this message and throwback picture.



What a journey!

But the award for greatest celebrity internet tribute undoubtedly goes to Drake for this smooth piece of photoshop brilliance:



Big up yaself O! 

We'll miss you Barack, thanks for the last eight years.

C-Span, Giphy
