From Lady Gaga To Tengku Zatashah: The Reactions To Joe Biden's Inauguration On Instagram
There was an unmistakable swell of hope and optimism when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as the US President and Vice President respectively yesterday, a feeling that spread across the world including Malaysia
On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States with Kamala Harris as his Vice President. The world watched in rapt attention as this historic moment unfolded; among its significance is the fact that Harris is the first female and first person of black and South Asian descent to be Vice President.
Here's what Hollywood celebrities and our own Malaysian personalities posted on Instagram in response to the inauguration:

Katy Perry chose to belt out her hit Firework on a TV special for the inauguration—accompanied halfway in the performance by spectacular fireworks, of course.
Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons performed their new song Better Days as part of a TV special honouring the inauguration.
In the caption, Timberlake wrote: "Today we all watched @joebiden and @kamalaharris take office — and make history. Tonight, @antclemons and I are deeply honored to perform our new song, BETTER DAYS, as a celebration of everything this administration represents... as well as a reminder to keep our eyes on the road ahead. We have a lot of work to do, but I’m feeling very hopeful for this country right now."
