Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez are headed to the inauguration.
President-elect Joe Biden's inaugural committee announced Thursday that Gaga will perform the national anthem at his inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20, and Lopez is scheduled for a musical performance as well.
Additionally, the committee said Thursday the inauguration will feature an invocation from former Georgetown University president Father Leo J. O'Donovan and a poetry reading from National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, while firefighter Andrea Hall will lead the pledge of allegiance and Reverend Dr. Silvester Beaman will deliver a benediction, according to ABC News.
Biden's inauguration has been scaled back due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and officials have urged Americans to stay home to watch it amid rising coronavirus cases and security concerns after last week's attack on the Capitol building. Following Biden's swearing-in during the day, a primetime inauguration TV special hosted by Tom Hanks is also planned for the evening. Brendan Morrow
