Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Usher, Brad Paisley to Join Inauguration Festivities

Inauguration 2013 just got a whole lot poppier.

Remember on Tuesday when we hinted that Katy Perry would be coming to perform at President Obama’s inauguration? We were right. The Associated Press reports today that the “Teenage Dream” singer will perform at the official inaugural balls on January 21 and at a children’s concert on January 19, along with Usher, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and the cast of Glee.

Also on the lineup to perform at the three official inaugural events are Fun, Far East Movement, Mindless Behavior, Nick Cannon, and Marc Anthony. There’s also a rumor that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be performing at the January 22 ball for staff—you may remember Jay-Z rapping “I got 99 problems but George Bush ain’t one” at 2009’s event. Will you be able to get tickets to any of these events? Almost certainly not, unfortunately.
