Kelly Clarkson To Perform At Obama Inauguration

Kelly Clarkson has been added to the bill of performers set to wow the audience at President Barack Obama's second inauguration ceremony. Clarkson will perform "My Country 'Tis of Thee" at the event.

Others set to perform are Beyoncé ("Star-Spangled Banner") and James Taylor ("America the Beautiful"). All three singers were selected by the President himself. Richard Blanco, the son of Cuban exiles, will be the inaugural poet.

Obama will be sworn in for his second term on January 20 on the steps of the Capitol building.

Beyoncé and Taylor both appeared at Obama's first inauguration in 2009. Lady Bey performed a cover of Etta James's "At Last" for Obama's first dance with First Lady Michelle Obama during the Neighborhood Inaugural Ball.
