Katy Perry is performing at Joe Biden’s primetime inauguration special on Wednesday, and she’ll have a handful of patriotic microphones to choose from.
On Tuesday (Jan. 19), Perry tweeted a photo of four mics — one white, one bedazzled with the flag, one covered in silver stars and one resembling Lady Liberty’s torch — with just a heart and an American flag emoji. The picture was retweeted by the Biden Inaugural Committee before they made it official with an announcement that Perry would be performing on the Celebrating America TV special after Wednesday’s inaugural ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Tom Hanks will host the primetime special, which already includes Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake, Jon Bon Jovi, Ant Clemons, Bruce Springsteen, John Legend and Foo Fighters performing at “iconic locations across the country,” according to a statement from the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
Celebrating America will air Wednesday from 8:30 to 10 p.m. ET on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC. It will also livestream on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch accounts. Amazon Prime Video, Twitch and NewsNOW from Fox will also stream the event.
