Lady Gaga and JLo perform at the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, and they absolutely nailed it
For the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, the star power is very much here. The nation just got to see Lady Gaga deliver a National Anthem that will make you sob and Jennifer Lopez absolutely slayed a medley of “This Land Is Your Land” and “America the Beautiful.”
Gaga wowed the crowd in a stunning red skirt and matching lipstick as her powerful voice made the tears flow. Her rendition of the National Anthem was totally flawless, as anyone who’s ever attempted to belt out the classic tune knows is no small order.

Lopez brought her own emotional versions of “This Land is Your Land” and “America the Beautiful,” and if any dry eyes remained after that, we have no idea how. These women lent the perfect note to all of these patriotic songs.

Two weeks ago, the Capitol was under siege by a violent mob. Today, Lady Gaga turned to the Capitol, and pointed at the flag and sang “our flag was still there.”

People were also pretty pumped to see JLo slipping in a little “Let’s Get Loud” along with her patriotic tribute. She also spoke Spanish briefly, which people were very excited to see.
.@jlo said in Spanish: "one nation, with liberty and justice for all…"

As a Puerto Rican American, I’m in tears seeing Jennifer Lopez just kill this inauguration performance. Holy shit.

Basically, it was The Feels all around.
Jennifer Lopez was the last major performance before the world shut down in 2020 and here's hoping her 2021 performance is the start of our world beginning to open back up again pic.twitter.com/c5wgJGA3A6
