Bruce Springsteen And John Legend To Perform On A TV Special To Celebrate The Inauguration Of President-Elect Joe Biden

Bruce Springsteen and John Legend are the latest headliners set to perform on a TV special, Celebrating America, to celebrate the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.

The New York Times reports that the Dancing In The Dark singer, 71, and All Of Me hitmaker, 42, will join Foo Fighters during the prime time special.

Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria and Little Fires Everywhere star Kerry Washington will also be included in the 90-minute show hosted by Tom Hanks.

Other stars included in the line up are Demi Lovato, Jon Bon Jovi and Justin Timberlake.

Elsewhere, Fall Out Boy is stated to play on We The People, a pre-inauguration performance as his parents met working for the future president.

After Joe Biden beat Donald Trump in November, Wentz posted a throwback shot of himself as a child being held by Joe Biden next to his mother, Dale Lewis Wentz.

He said that his parents met when working for Joe Biden in the Senate in the 70s and that to him, he was the beacon of understanding, empathy and kindness.

It comes after it was announced that Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez will perform at the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.

Variety reports The Bad Romance hitmaker, 34, will perform the national anthem, The Star-Spangled Banner, for the swearing-in ceremony of Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, which will be held on the West Front of the US Capitol building.

On The Floor singer Jennifer Lopez, 51, is also on board to perform before the TV special airs which also features Demi Lovato and Justin Timberlake.

Oscar-winner Lady Gaga is a long time supporter of Joe Biden and has been vocal throughout this election season, joining the future president on the campaign trail.

She also filmed a controversial campaign video for Joe Biden back in November which showed her waving a can of beer and rocking a camouflage get up as she preached to the election’s vital swing states.

Also joining Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez at the ceremony will be firefighter Andrea Hall who will lead in the Pledge of Allegiance and first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman who will read a poem.

The invocation will be delivered by Father Leo O’Donovan and the benediction by Reverend Dr Silvester Beaman, both of whom are longtime friends of the Biden family.

But it seems that this is all turning into a concert more an inauguration and I’m assuming all these stars will play for free and if not, then all the money will be fed back to the people of the redistribution of wealth programme, and if this carries on the way that it seems to be there will be more performers than supporters.

And the question here is, what difference, in reality, do the American people think Joe Biden will make to the country? As Hollywood cheers and the working class cry because these stars wouldn’t spit on the little people if they were on fire.

But people will watch it on TV, some because of the importance of what is a truly historical event, others because of the music, although I honestly don’t see any relevance of these performances and it just seems to lack gravity, but then I guess after the four years that the American people have had with Donald Trump, they need some song to soothe their hearts.

However, when all said and done, this is just going to be another freak show, no matter how many celebrities perform there, and every man and his dog will want to be there.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
