Watch Lady Gaga Slay The National Anthem At Joe Biden’s Inauguration

On Wednesday, Lady Gaga belted out the national anthem at the historic inaugurations of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The Grammy winner wore a huge dove brooch and an impressively billowing red sculpted skirt as she sang into a golden microphone, delivering an emotional and powerful rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

She was followed at Wednesday’s ceremony by Jennifer Lopez, dressed all in white, who threw a line of Spanish into her medley of “This Land is Your Land” and “America the Beautiful.”

On Tuesday, Gaga shared a message on Instagram. “I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans,” she wrote. “A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance not fear. A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls. Love, from the Capitol.”

“Singing our National Anthem for the American People is my honor,” she wrote Wednesday morning on Twitter ahead of her performance. “I will sing during a ceremony, a transition, a moment of change—between POTUS 45 and 46. For me, this has great meaning.”

Gaga went on Twitter later to explain that the giant brooch accompanying her Schiaparelli haute couture outfit was “a dove carrying an olive branch. May we all make peace with each other.”
