The future President of the United States will be the 46th POTUS in the history of America tomorrow with Kamala Harris who will also be sworn in as Vice President tomorrow. As imagined, current President Donald Trump has refused to attend the inauguration ceremony, after recently being impeached twice in his term.

But on to who will be there, all former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will be in attendance. Apart from great political minds, pop icons and stars will also be in attendance. According to BBC, there will be performances by entertainers Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, as well as a TV special called Celebrating America that evening, hosted by Tom Hanks and featuring performances by Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Jon Bon Jovi, Ant Clemons and John Legend.
