Katy Perry Closes ‘Celebrating America’ Special With Epic Firework Display Following Joe Biden’s Inauguration

Katy Perry is welcoming the Biden administration! The 36-year-old singer was one of many stars to perform on Wednesday’s “Celebrating America” special following the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Perry, dressed in a custom Thom Browne ensemble, belted out her 2010 hit, “Firework”. The singer appeared in front of the Washington Monument to wrap up the special, with Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, appearing to watch the performance and epic firework display.

The new mom took to Instagram on Tuesday night to tease a little of what fans could expect from her performance — a collection of patriotic mics.

Proud fiancé Orlando Bloom then took to Instagram to praise his other half after her performance, posting:
