Beyoncé To Sing National Anthem At Obama Inauguration

President Barack Obama is kicking off his second term in style, getting Beyonce to sing the "Star-Spangled Banner" at his inauguration. The event will also feature performances from James Taylor ("America the Beautiful") and Kelly Clarkson ("My Country, 'Tis of Thee").

All of the performances will take place on the steps of the Capitol building, where Obama will deliver his second inaugural address.

Lady Bey is no stranger to performing for the president, as she previously performed Etta James' "At Last" for the Obamas when they shared their first dance as President and First Lady at the Neighborhood Ball in 2009. She and her hubby were also big fundraisers during Obama's second campaign, pulling in $4 million at an event at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club.

President Obama's second inauguration ceremony goes down in Washington, D.C. on January 21.
