Friends see each other in times of need, especially when the risk is that of a riot on the day on the high alert of the US political agenda: the inauguration ceremony of new president-elect Joe Biden and his deputy Kamala Harris, expected on January 20. Thanks to the climate of tension that ignited the Capitol on January 6 and the danger of new outbreaks of Trumpian rebels that could appear during Biden’s swearing-in speech, the Democrats decide to involve two internationally renowned stars to express their support for the new president: it’s about Lady Gaga, which will run a live version of The Star Spangled Banner as he did at the 2016 Super Bowl, and of Jennifer Lopez, that we will see soon in the cinema in the film Marry Me with Maluma.

The names, anticipated by Variety, will take part in the ceremony at the Capitol together with Andrea Hall, a career firefighter; Amanda Gorman, who will recite a poem, and Father Leo O’Donovan and Reverend Silvester Beaman, who will bless Biden’s first term as president. From what it says Variety, it seems that other artists will also be involved, of which the Biden-Harris team has chosen, for the moment, not to mention. The event, one of the most anticipated and most watched for this year, will be accompanied by a virtual parade and other streaming events before the broadcast of a prime-time television special hosted by Tom Hanks.
In the specific case of Lady Gaga, we can speak of a relationship of friendship and mutual esteem with the new president Biden, given that the pop star supported him throughout his electoral battle against Donald Trump. “Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the American people, you have just given the world one of the greatest acts of kindness and courage that humanity has ever seen. Nothing but love for our new commander-in-chief and the first female vice president elected to the White House, ”Gaga tweeted after the election results. In short, the event, both in terms of entertainment and on a political level, will undoubtedly be one of the most anticipated not only by the Americans but also by the entire planet, with the hope that everything will take place in a peaceful manner, avoiding the intervention of the National Guard.
