The Brief: Jennifer Lopez "Let's Get Loud" inauguration performance memes began circling the internet after she sang "Let's Get Loud" at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.
On Jan. 20, Jennifer Lopez performed at the 2021 Inauguration Ceremony for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. During her performance, Lopez added her own special flair, singing “Let’s Get loud” as a segue from “This Land Is Your Land” into “America The Beautiful.”
Internet users were shook by Lopez’s remix and the way in which she was able to slip in a reference to her 1999 hit.

Others were emotional:
I am crying right now and it’s not because of this historical moment. It’s because Jennifer Lopez shouted Let’s get loud at the dang US Capitol for Inauguration.

Some hoped other performers would follow suit.
I hope Garth drops “Friends in Low Places” in like J. lo did “Let’s get loud!”

If JLo could sneak “Let’s get loud” into her inaugural performance I’m just really confused as to why we didn’t get “I wanna take a ride on your disco stick” in Gaga’s National Anthem?? pic.twitter.com/dUTu9byevg

Regardless, this internet user plans to take notes out of JLo’s book.
i’m slipping “let’s get loud” into any random statement from here on out.

Plus, it looks like the Biden Inaugural Committee was all for it.
Let's get loud… for our next president and vice president of the United States! 🕺

I mean, it was a historic day.
Gaga dressed like a Hunger Games sponsor. J Lo worked “let’s get loud” into this land is your land. Everything about this is so extra
