The ‘Daisy’ singer oozes pride while performing ‘Firework’ from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, while the ‘Commander in Chief’ songstress shows off amazing vocals with her rendition of ‘Lovely Day’.
AceShowbiz – The celebration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration continued Wednesday night, January 20 with a TV special “Celebrating America”. Hosted by Tom Hanks, the show featured performances from the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and Demi Lovato among others in remote places.
As the final performer of the night, Katy oozed pride as she sang her hit “Firework” from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial while pyrotechnics bursting behind the Washington Memorial illuminated the sky. She was wearing a Thom Browne all-white cashmere coat, satin corset and floor-length skirt.
While the “Teenage Dream” hitmaker belted out the song, there’s footage of President Joe Biden with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris with second gentleman Doug Emhoff standing on balconies overlooking the firework display over Washington, D.C.
Justin, meanwhile, teamed up with Ant Clemons for an uplifting performance of their collaboration “Better Days”. Singing from inside the iconic Stax Records in Memphis, the duo took it to the streets mid-song while being backed by a socially distanced band in an empty Memphis intersection.
