It would have been nice if President Joe and Dr. Jill Biden, as well as Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff, would celebrate their inauguration with a series of televised dances at crowded opening balls. But COVID-19 didn’t have it. Instead, the inauguration planners put together “Celebrating America,” a program hosted by Tom Hanks with an all-star cast.
All-star you say Why yes.
Cast includes Bruce Springsteen, The Foo Fighters, Tim McGraw and Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line, John Legend, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, Katy Perry and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington will also perform. Just like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Chef José Andrés, Union leader Dolores Huerta, and Kim Ng, the first female MLB executive director.
The event will be broadcast from 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and MSNBC are streamed on YouTube and elsewhere.
