"My parents met working for Joe Biden in the Senate in the 70s", Wentz said in his caption, "To me he is a beacon of empathy, compassion, and kindness". It will also feature performances from Jon Bon Jovi, who campaigned with Biden in Pennsylvania, Demi Lovato, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons.

Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray said earlier that the FBI was looking into individuals who could possibly threaten the safety of the inauguration.

Lady Gaga will sing the national anthem at Joe Biden's inauguration and Jennifer Lopez will give a musical performance on the West Front of the US Capitol when Biden is sworn in as the nation's 46th president next Thursday.

The primetime programming will cap off the inaugural celebration that includes events ahead of Biden taking the oath, including their previously announced National Day of Service on Martin Luther King Jr. PIC CEO Tony Allen shares that these performers truly represent the upcoming Biden-Harris administration.

The country may be on edge because of the threat of potential violence looming over the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, but plans are going forward for TV specials and other programs created to mark the historic occasion. Meanwhile, Lopez and her partnerAlex Rodriguez, the former baseball player, "have been outspoken about the disproportionate impact of coronavirus on Latinos and the need to contain the virus, rebuild the economy, and unify the country".

The warnings follow last week's assault on the US Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump that left five people dead.

The ceremony will be held on January 20 on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol. Day and a nationwide COVID-19 Memorial to Lives Lost on January 19.

For those of you that don't have cable, you're in luck. It will also be available to stream, via the Presidential Inaugural Committee social media channels on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch. Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Bing, NewsNOW from Fox, and AT&T DIRECTV and U-verse will also carry live coverage of the program.
