If Arthur Blank was dancing after last week’s win, what do you think he’ll do in the locker room now that the Atlanta Falcons are headed to the Super Bowl?

Celebrity fans celebrated the Falcon’s Championship victory against the Green Bay Packers inside the Georgia Dome and on social media on Sunday.

From Big Boi to former President Jimmy Carter, here is how local celebrities showed their love for the Dirty Birds:

Atlanta artists Ludacris, Jermaine Dupri and Young Jeezy treated fans to a performance of “Welcome to Atlanta” during the Falcon’s last game in the Georgia Dome.

The Falcons will play in Super Bowl LI Sunday in Houston Feb. 5. The game will air on FOX at 6:30 p.m.

The last time the Falcons played in the Super Bowl was in 1999.
