WATCH: Music Stars Perform At Biden-Harris Inauguration
The inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris featured performances by music superstars Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Garth Brooks.
Gaga belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner” while wearing a custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture ensemble by Daniel Roseberry – complete with a "gilded dove of peace" brooch.
On Tuesday, Gaga took to Instagram to share her hope that the inauguration would be "a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls."
Lopez, wearing all-white Chanel, lip synced Woody Guthrie’s 1940 folk song “This Land Is Your Land” with a little bit of “America, The Beautiful” and her 1999 hit “Let’s Get Loud” thrown in. She also said "One nation, with liberty and justice for all" in Spanish.

Near the end of the inauguration ceremony, Brooks came out and removed his black cowboy hat to sing “Amazing Grace.” Earlier in the week, Brooks – a Republican – said his appearance was "a statement of unity. This is kind of how I get to serve this country. It’s an honour to be asked."
The Biden-Harris Inauguration will wrap-up on Wednesday night with Celebrate America, a 90-minute special airing on most U.S. networks and on some social media platforms. It will feature performances by Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Demi Lovato, Jon Bon Jovi and Justin Timberlake with Ant Clemons.
