Published Jan 20, 2021The one story that has dominated the discourse so far today is Joe Biden being sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. The former Parks and Recreation guest (and former VP) and his running mate Kamala Harris were sworn in as president and vice president, respectively, and some famous names were there to help out.
Lady Gaga was on board to sing the National Anthem and belted it out into a shiny gold microphone. After Kamala Harris was sworn in, Jennifer Lopez sang "This Land Is Your Land" and "America the Beautiful," though she also added a line from her 1999 single "Let's Get Loud." Then, following Biden's inauguration speech, Garth Brooks sang "Amazing Grace."
All three performances are available below. A virtual parade featuring many, many artists (including New Radicals) will take place later today.
