Though much of the inauguration will be celebrated virtually due to COVID-19 risk, the IRL event is set to feature performances from Lady Gaga and J-Lo. A virtual “parade across America” will include musical numbers, TikTok stars (like Nathan Apodaca or ‘Doggface’), comedians, athletes, and other representatives of American culture.
In the evening, Tom Hanks will host the “Celebrating America Primetime Special” which will feature Ant Clemons, Jon Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, John Legend, Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, and Kerry Washington. Fans of these artists have expressed their enthusiasm on social media, creating Biden inauguration memes about what the performances may entail.
Once again, a scene from The Simpsons looks a lot like reality:

Some memes point to Trump and his administration’s disappointment, anger, and denial that he was not re-elected.

Please excuse any above misspellings of inauguration. It’s tricky!
