Justin Timberlake and Demi Lovato are honored and excited to be performing as part of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘ Inauguration next Wednesday (Jan. 20).
Justin expressed his excitement about performing at the inauguration this morning on the “Today” show.
I got the phone call to be asked [to perform at the inauguration], and I was just like, ‘Uh, yes!’. I’m very excited. There’s a song that I wrote with a new artist who was just nominated for a GRAMMY, Ant Clemons, and we wrote a song called ‘Better Days.’ We’re going to be performing it at the inauguration. So incredibly excited. What an honor.
Justin also took to his Instagram account to share his excitement with the world.
A few months ago, during lockdown, @antclemons and I wrote a song together called BETTER DAYS. (I actually recorded my final vocals for this song on election night…). This past year brought a lot of frustration, grief, anger — and there were times when it was easy to feel powerless. This song was our way of doing what little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful… and keep working towards a better, more equal future.⠀ ⠀
I’m very honored to announce we will be performing this song on January 20th for the Presidential Inauguration. We have a long way to go to fix, undo, and rebuild this country… but I hope now, despite the past four years, we are on our way.
Lovato also took to her Instagram account to share the good news.

Jan. 20 will be a great day and I share in the excitement of Justin and Demi. May God bless President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as they start the process of putting the pieces back together.
