Watch Lady Gaga Slay the National Anthem at the Biden Inauguration

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga brought style to the singing of the national anthem.

The bisexual "Poker Face" singer took the podium at the Wednesday inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. She is the first out member of the LGBTQ+ community to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at a presidential inauguration.

She belted in front of the U.S. Capitol in a black and crimson gown adorned with a large gold bird and a braided crown. Her earpiece and microphone were also a matching gold.

Beforehand, she tweeted, "Singing our National Anthem for the American People is my honor. I will sing during a ceremony, a transition, a moment of change — between POTUS 45 and 46. For me, this has great meaning.

"My intention is to acknowledge our past, be healing for our present, and passionate for a future where we work together lovingly. I will sing to the hearts of all people who live on this land."

Previously, Gaga nailed the "The Star-Spangled Banner" in 2016 at the Super Bowl.

In addition to Gaga, Jennifer Lopez performed at the inauguration with a rendition of "This Land Is Your Land" and "America the Beautiful."
