Inauguration: Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus join the celebration
Next week’s inauguration festivities are getting more star-studded by the day. The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced today that the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Bow Wow will perform at the Kids’ Inaugural, a concert honoring military families that will be held Monday night. Along with their parents, Malia and Sasha Obama are expected to be in attendance. There’s a reason the lineup features so many Disney stars: The event will be televised at 8 p.m. on the Disney Channel and then streamed on Disney.com.
The Disney/ABC Television Group also has exclusive rights to another major inauguration event: Tuesday’s Neighborhood Ball, the first gala of the night that the newly sworn-in President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will attend. Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Faith Hill, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Shakira and Stevie Wonder are all scheduled to perform. ABC will carry the event live from the Washington Convention Center at 8 p.m. Eastern time. (On the West Coast, it will air tape-delayed at 8 p.m.)
