    Lady Gaga will sing the US national anthem at Joe Biden's inauguration

    The 34-year-old pop star is set to perform 'The Star Spangled Banner' when Biden and Kamala Harris are sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States respectively on January 20. Gaga will join the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake and Jon Bon Jovi in performing at the event whilst Tom Hanks is leading a primetime special to celebrate Biden's inauguration which will be broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC in addition to being live streamed on social media and Amazon Prime Video


    Gaga had previously admitted that she was left "kind of speechless" when Biden triumphed over Donald Trump in the presidential election in November.

    The 'Stupid Love' hitmaker said: "I hope you're all celebrating. I hope all the women in this country know that there is a real reckoning and a real change. I hope the people who have been oppressed by power ... I hope that you know your voices are heard. I'm just honestly kind of speechless. This is a very special day. It's a day where a lot of people ... have felt like we were living in a state of terror and aggression all the time and it's over. You can feel warm now.

    "I feel like the world just got a big hug from God. Go home and hug your families and hug yourself. May we all stitch ourselves back together after all this. Be safe and be peaceful. There's no need to gloat in anybody's face that Joe won. There's no need to be unkind. This is just a time for healing, this is a time for rest and a time for love. And the people have spoken."
