Lady Gaga, Garth Brooks Bring Star Power To Emotional, Multicultural Biden Inauguration

Lady Gaga belted out her own version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday wearing a dress Billboard characterized as a "Hunger Games" outfit.

Expectations for a new democratic era in the United States are high and it is hoped that the Biden-Harris administration will live up to this desire of the citizens.

Lady Gaga officially revealed what the brooch is about, tweeting, "A dove carrying an olive branch".

For her inauguration performance, Lady Gaga opted for a dramatic look.

Stepping out to sing the U.S. national anthem in a giant custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture look designed by Daniel Roseberry, the Star is Born actor took to Twitter to decode the meaning of the staggering brooch.

Ahead of her performance, Gaga said on Twitter that she wanted to "acknowledge our past, be healing for our present, and be passionate for a future where we work together lovingly".

A 360 from yesterday's pristine white Chanel getup, Lopez sported black leggings and a white long sleeve shirt with a white sports bra underneath.

At just 22 years old, poet Amanda Gorman captured the mixed emotions of the past four years with a poem in which she referred to herself as a "skinny Black girl, descended from slaves and raised by a single mother (who) can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one".

Other top-tier performers will be part of "Celebrating America", a 90-minute, multi-network evening broadcast hosted by Tom Hanks that takes the place of the usual official inaugural balls.

"But tonight we ponder the United States of America, the practice of our democracy, the foundations of our republic, the integrity of our Constitution, the hope and dreams we all share for a more flawless union", he said. Hosts Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria will be joined by basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, chef Jose Andres, labour leader Dolores Huerta and Kim Ng, the first female general manager in Major League Baseball history.

The celebrity component only increased over time, and one of the starriest inaugurations was that of John F. Kennedy in 1961.

Fast forward to the first Obama inauguration in 2009, where Aretha Franklin sang "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" at the swearing-in, and the new president and his wife, Michelle, were serenaded by Beyonce singing "At Last" at an inaugural ball.
