Every celebrity that will be attending Joe Biden’s inauguration

420Doggface has filmed a segment ffs 💀

Joe Biden’s inauguration is finally upon us. Today Trump is ousted from the White House to make way for Biden’s arrival. Although Donald announced that he wouldn’t personally be in attendance, there is still an inauguration to be held – and as you can imagine, every celebrity you could possibly think of wants a slot to perform to get some of that lucrative air time amidst the biggest television moment of 2021 so far.

So, from the expected to the completely unexpected (TikTok skateboard guy, anyone?!), here is a list of every massively famous celebrity performing at president-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

John Legend

The first of many acts that make Trump’s inauguration look like a child’s tea party is John Legend, who will take to the stage to celebrate Joe Biden’s inauguration. This man has many fingers in many pies, so it’s no surprise that he’ll be heading to Washington, but the next one is a bit of a shock to say the least…

If last year you were told that someone by the name of “420Doggface208” would be performing at one of the biggest political events in history, you’d… well you probably wouldn’t be surprised because 2020 was an absolute shit-show, but here we are.

According to TMZ, Biden and his team are big fans of Nathan Apodaca’s viral TikTok in which he skateboards down a road to Fleetwood Mac, and he’s already filmed a special appearance for the event. Going viral in 2020 for the TikTok, it became a massive worldwide trend that even got the likes of Mick Fleetwood and Stevie Nicks involved.

I expect nothing less than a cringeworthy recreation of the same video, on the same road, with the same drink.

Lady Gaga

Trump’s inauguration saw America’s Got Talent contestant Jackie Evancho (me neither) perform the national anthem because nobody else wanted to do it, but for Joe Biden’s inauguration they’ve clearly pulled out the big guns by booking none other than Lady Gaga to perform.

This is going to be a good one I’m sure.

Amanda Gorman

The youngest inaugural poet to ever perform, 22-year-old Amanda Gorman will be reciting a poem for the inauguration ceremony. “The Hill We Climb” is a commentary about the state of modern America, and she even added parts to the poem following the storming of the capitol earlier in January.

“I’m deeply humbled to be taking part in such a historic moment,” she told Teen Vogue. “It’s an honour not only to be the youngest inaugural poet but to be a participant in an inauguration that symbolizes much-needed change, as embodied by President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris.”

Bruce Springsteen

You probably need little introduction, but for those that do – Bruce Springsteen is responsible for some all American classic tunes, from Born to Run to Dancing in the Dark. Judging from Biden’s general vibe, I wouldn’t be surprised if Springsteen was a personal request.

Justin Timberlake

Classic Justin or don’t bother, it really is that simple.

Jennifer Lopez

Another of the raft of celebrities flying into Washington DC to watch Biden become president is Jennifer Lopez, who will be there to perform onstage. Jenny from the Block, hopefully.

Eva Longoria

Actress Eva Longoria will be joined by Hamilton creator Lin Manuel Miranda for the Latino inaugural, taking place a little later than the main proceedings.

Kerry Washington

Another high profile name added to the lineup for Kamala Harris’ and Joe Biden’s inauguration is Kerry Washington, who will be presenting various sections of proceedings with Eva Longoria.

Demi Lovato

Lovato recently had people a little confused when she announced that she had a song in the works in response to the riots that happened in the capitol. Let’s hope this performance is a little better received.

The Foo Fighters

It never ends. If neither pop music, old American music or TikTok stars aren’t for you then do not fear, for The Foo Fighters will be performing.

Bon Jovi

If anyone’s going to change the lyrics of their classic songs to fit the current political narrative, let it be John Bon Jovi with Livin’ on a Prayer.

Tom Hanks

And finally, we have Tom Hanks, who will be hosting the entire thing (possibly from his bedroom on a webcam, but hopefully not). Has there ever been a bigger gig?
