Popstar Lady Gaga is the latest performer to join Joe Biden’s inauguration lineup. Three hours ago, Gaga shared the news in an Instagram post, stating: “I am deeply honored to be joining @BidenInaugural on January 20 to sing the National Anthem and celebrate the historic inauguration of @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris!” Gaga, who previously sang “The Star Spangled Banner” at the 2016 Super Bowl, joins numerous other musical guests including Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Ant Clemons, and Jon Bon Jovi.
Gaga has been known to speak about politics in the past, and has frequently denounced Trump. In early November of 2020, Trump even spoke about Gaga at a rally in Pennsylvania after the singer had announced her endorsement of Joe Biden. “Now he’s got Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga is not too good. I could tell you plenty of stories. I could tell you stories about Lady Gaga. I know a lot of stories about Lady Gaga,” Trump told the crowd. On the same day, Gaga joined Biden in Pittsburgh, delivering a moving speech that detailed why she made the decision to support Biden over Trump and urging others to do the same. “Vote like your children’s lives depend on it. Because they do. To all the women, and to all the men with daughters and sisters and mothers — everybody, no matter how you identify, now is your chance to vote against Donald Trump, a man who believes his fame gives him the right to grab one of your daughters or sisters or mothers or wives by any part of their body,” Gaga said (Los Angeles Times). The inauguration special, which is called Celebrating America and is hosted by Tom Hanks, will air at 8:30 PM on primetime networks ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC.
