Lady Gaga delivered a stunning performance of the national anthem at Wednesday’s inauguration of President Joe Biden.
In typically extravagant fashion, the pop star dressed in a jaw-dropping navy and red Schiaparelli Haute Couture gown adorned with a golden dove symbolizing peace. She completed the look with braids and a coordinating gold microphone, earning comparisons to royalty and “The Hunger Games” on social media.
Her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” was theatrical and rousing, with arms raised as she smiled and looked around at the masked crowd surrounding her outside the U.S. Capitol. Compared to her more measured and emotional performance of the anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl, her inaugural take on the song was dynamic and uplifting, showcasing her signature vibrato and impressive range.
