Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez will perform at Biden inauguration

Lady Gaga will sing the National Anthem at President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week, and Jennifer Lopez is also slated to perform, the president-elect’s inaugural committee announced Thursday.

Other participants at the Jan. 20 swearing-in ceremony on the West front of the Capitol will include Father Leo J. O’Donovan, a Biden family friend, who will deliver the invocation; Andrea Hall, president of the International Association of Firefighters Local 3920, who will lead the Pledge of Allegiance; Amanda Gorman, the first National Youth Poet Laureate, who will deliver a poetry reading; and Reverend Dr. Silvester Beaman, another longtime Biden family confidante, who will offer the benediction.

The latest inauguration lineup comes after POLITICO reported Wednesday that Biden’s presidential inaugural committee is producing a 90-minute, prime-time television special to celebrate his swearing-in — called “Celebrating America” — that will be hosted by Tom Hanks and feature performances from Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Ant Clemons and Jon Bon Jovi.
