Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez will perform at the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.
Variety reports The Bad Romance hitmaker, 34, will perform national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, for the swearing-in ceremony of Biden and Vice-President elect Kamala Harris, which will be held on the West front of the U.S. Capitol building.
On The Floor singer Jennifer, 51, is also on-board to perform – before a TV special airs which features Demi Lovato and Justin Timberlake.
Oscar-winner Gaga is a long-time supporter of Biden and has been vocal throughout this election season, joining the future president on the campaign trail.
She also filmed a controversial campaign video for Biden back in November which showed her wielding a can of beer and rocking a camouflage get-up as she preached to the election’s vital swing states.
Also joining Gaga and Jennifer at the ceremony will be firefighter Andrea Hall who will lead in the Pledge of Allegiance and first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman who will recite a poem.
Next Wednesday’s inauguration will largely be conducted virtually in keeping with safety protocols amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The special, titled ‘Celebrating America’, will air on the evening of January 20, just hours after Biden is sworn in as the 46th president of the United States.
