These artists are headlining Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony
We are less than a week away from the official inauguration of Joe Biden. In preparation for the historic event, the artists headlining the ceremony on Jan. 20 have finally been announced.
Earlier this week, we learned that Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Jon Bon Jovi and Ant Clemons will help celebrate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris' inauguration on Celebrating America. The special televised event kicks off at 8:30 P.M., following the conclusion of the ceremony on Jan. 20.
Although Demi Lovato and Jon Bon Jovi have not revealed what they will be performing, we do know that Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons are debuting a brand new song. The duo wrote "Better Days" while in coronavirus lockdown and Timberlake even recorded his vocals on election day back in November.
Now, we finally know the two artists who will be performing exclusively at the inauguration on Wednesday, Jan. 20. Lady Gaga is set to sing the national anthem while Jennifer Lopez will perform a musical number.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced the lineup on Thursday. PIC CEO Tony Allen shares that these performers truly represent the upcoming Biden-Harris administration.
According to the PIC, Lady Gaga "worked closely with President-elect Biden's It's On Us campaign to address sexual assault on college campuses" during the Obama-Biden administration. Meanwhile, Lopez and her partner Alex Rodriguez, the former baseball player, "have been outspoken about the disproportionate impact of coronavirus on Latinos and the need to contain the virus, rebuild the economy, and unify the country."
Despite last week's Capitol riots and the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the inauguration ceremony is going ahead as planned. The ceremony is happening on Jan. 20 on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol. Due to COVID-19, attendance will be limited.
Following the inauguration ceremony, Celebrating America will be available to watch on numerous platforms. The event, which will be hosted by Tom Hanks, starts at 8:30 P.M. ET on multiple platforms including ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and MSNBC.Presidential Inaugural Committee
