Black Pumas brought a little Texas to "Celebrating America," the primetime special in honor of the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The Grammy-nominated group -- who are up for three awards this year, including album of the year and record of the year -- staged their song "Colors" from Austin, Texas.

"Congratulations to President Biden and Vice President Harris on this historic win, we hope you enjoy the music," lead singer Eric Burton said before launching into a lively and emotional performance.

"Celebrating America," hosted by Tom Hanks, included the talents of Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters and more from all around the country.

Earlier in the day (Jan. 20), Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Garth Brooks all performed at the Biden and Harris inauguration.

Following the ceremony, New Radicals reunited for a lively rendition of "You Get What You Give" joining other acts including Andra Day for a virtual parade to celebrate the new president and vice president.
