Biden will be sworn into office on Wednesday (January 20)
The President-elect will be sworn into office on Wednesday (January 20) during a ceremony at the US Capitol in Washington D.C. along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
Variety reports that Gaga has been asked to sing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ during the ceremony, with Jennifer Lopez also set to perform. More artists are set to be announced for the inauguration in the coming days.
Gaga supported the Biden campaign ahead of November’s presidential election, appearing at a special drive-in event for Biden in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where she gave a speech and performed ‘Shallow’ and ‘Yoü and I’.
This year’s presidential inauguration is expected to be scaled back due to the coronavirus pandemic, and amid ongoing security concerns following last week’s violent events at the Capitol.
Biden and Harris are still expected to be sworn into office on the steps of the Capitol at 12pm ET on January 20, but much of the celebrations that usually take place afterwards are expected to be either virtual or livestream events.
