“I was left speechless when I was asked to perform!” she added. “Tune in with various tv networks [and] live streaming services @bideninaugural #Inauguration2021.”

Tom Hanks will host the 90 minute primetime show on January 20, featuring such stars as Timberlake, Lovato, Ant Clemons and Jon Bon Jovi.

The celebration will take place virtually with a mix of pre-taped and live appearances across the country instead of the usual in-person festivities due to the pandemic, per Politico.

The program starts at 8:30 ET p.m. and will air on broadcast channels ABC, CBS and NBC, CNN and MSNBC. It will also stream live on the “Presidential Inaugural Committee’s social media channels” as well as Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Bing, NewsNOW from Fox, and AT&T DIRECTV and U-verse, per Entertainment Tonight.

“We have witnessed countless heroes this past year step up to the frontlines and serve their fellow Americans, so we are telling their stories, spreading their collective light, and celebrating the best of our country and its people with this prime-time program,” Tony Allen, the CEO of Biden’s presidential inaugural committee, shared in a statement with the outlet..
