With the presidential inauguration quickly approaching on January 20th, viewers are learning about what they can expect. Today, it was announced that Justin Timberlake and Demi Lovato would be performing virtually that evening for “Celebrating America,” a 90-minute live special. According to USA Today, the special will also include remarks from President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. The special will also include a tribute to COVID-19 first responders.
Demi and Justin both took to their Instagram pages to share the news. Demi shared a photo with the caption, “I’m SO honored to announce that I will be joining @joebiden & @kamalaharris for their special event, “Celebrating America” on January 20th at 8:30 pm ET/PT. I was left speechless when I was asked to perform! Tune in with various tv networks & live streaming services @bideninaugural #Inauguration2021.”
Justin shared a preview of his new song, “Better Days,” which he will be performing. He captioned the Instagram post, “A few months ago, during the lockdown, @antclemons and I wrote a song together called BETTER DAYS. (I actually recorded my final vocals for this song on election night.)”
He continued, “This past year brought a lot of frustration, grief, anger — and there were times when it was easy to feel powerless. This song was our way of doing what little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful… and keep working towards a better, more equal future. I’m very honored to announce we will be performing this song on January 20th for the Presidential Inauguration. We have a long way to go to fix, undo, and rebuild this country… but I hope now, despite the past four years, we are on our way. #Inauguration2021.“
Jon Bon Jovi, Ant Clemons, and Tom Hanks are also set to appear during the special, and other performers are set to be announced soon.
