Lady Gaga wowed in a huge fuchsia Schiaparelli couture silk skirt and black top adorned by a large gold brooch of a dove carrying an olive branch as she sung “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Biden’s swearing-in ceremony. Gaga at one point gestured to the U.S. flag flying high over the Capitol, the seat of Congress that just two weeks ago was attacked by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump seeking to overturn Biden’s election victory. “She slayed it. I AM GAGA FOR GAGA!!!” actor Ed Helms wrote in a tweet. Ahead of her performance, Gaga said on Twitter she wanted to “acknowledge our past, be healing for our present, and be passionate for a future where we work together lovingly.”
Our TV shows hosts: Margie Rey and Melanie Murphy interviewed the Fabulous Lady Gaga at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills that honored Bradley Cooper at the 32nd Annual American Cinematheque Awards:
Country singer Garth Brooks, a Republican, chose jeans and a black shirt and took off his black Stetson hat to sing an unaccompanied version of “Amazing Grace”, asking Americans at the ceremony and watching at home to sing the last verse along with him. Afterward, before replacing his coronavirus mask, Brooks hugged or shook hands with Biden, former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, outgoing Vice President Mike Pence, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Garth performed Two Piña Coladas, which is a favorite of mine, that he also performed about 20 years ago at the Billboard Music Awards at The MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. – and he is always super nice, but Garth was at his best about 20 years ago – when he performed this song suspended 50 feet up in the air with cables as he sang as he flew over the audience!
