Lady Gaga will sing the National Anthem at Joe Biden's star-studded inauguration.
Gaga, an outspoken critic of outgoing US President Donald Trump, will perform The Star Spangled Banner for the swearing-in ceremony in front of the US Capitol, Variety confirmed.
She and Jennifer Lopez are the latest big names to sign up to support the incoming US President.
The January 20 ceremonies will conclude with a starry live 90-minute prime time special hosted by Tom Hanks.
Performers will include Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato and Jon Bon Jovi, with others expected to be announced in the coming days.

The event will top off a day of celebration that will see Biden sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.
It will follow on from other events organised for the historic day, which along with the official Inaugural Ceremonies, also include a wreath-laying on Arlington National Cemetery, and a Parade Across America.
Trump struggled to find big names prepared to perform at his inauguration in 2017 – with Ex-America's Got Talent star Jackie Evancho the best known singer.
But Barack Obama's second inauguration set the high bar back in 2013 as it featured Beyoncé, Kelly Clarkson, and James Taylor.

As for Gaga, she has long been a supporter of Biden, joining him on the campaign trail last year.
She bedded the crowds in Philadelphia in November: "Vote for Joe. He's a good person. Thankyou."
Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO Tony Allen said in a statement that the inauguration was "a unique opportunity to spotlight the resilience and spirit of an America united."
He continued: "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.

“Our first priority is safety – so while many of us will be watching safely from our homes, we are creating real moments of connection that highlight a new inclusive American era of leadership that works for and represents all Americans."
