Katy Perry Closes 'Celebrating America' Special With Epic Fireworks

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 long white gown, 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.
