On Wednesday (Jan. 20), Lady Gaga joined the ranks of acts who have performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at a presidential inauguration — but which star did your favorite rendition of the national anthem?
Then-Vice President Joe Biden stood behind Beyoncé as she performed the anthem during President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in 2013, while America’s Got Talent singer Jackie Evancho took on the task for President Donald Trump’s inauguration in 2017.
We’re just going to focus on the last three pop acts who performed for the poll below, but the United States Navy Band Sea Chanters sang the patriotic tune for Obama’s first inauguration in 2009, while President George W. Bush had Army Staff Sgt. Alec T. Maly (2001) and Air Force Tech. Sgt. Bradley Bennett (2005) perform the song for his inaugurations.
Go back in history and watch the national anthem performance from the last three presidential inaugurations before voting for your favorite one!
