Ahead of Monday’s big inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama who will begin his second term as Commander in Chief, the White House has released the official Inauguration Day playlist.

All of the artists have some role in the Inauguration event; starting Saturday there will be a ball and ceremonies where these major musical artists will perform live.

The playlist is as follows:

- “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)” (Stevie Wonder)
- “I Was Here” (Beyonce)
- “Mi Gente” (Marc Anthony)
- “Carry On” (Fun.)
- “New Day” (Alicia Keys)
- “Mud On The Tires” (Brad Paisley)
- “Turn Up The Love” (Far East Movement)
- “Edge of Glory” (Glee cast cover)
- “Your Smiling Face” (James Taylor)
- “Ordinary People” (John Legend)
- “Firework” (Katy Perry)
- “Breakaway” (Kelly Clarkson)
- “My Mic” (Nick Cannon)
- “Something Special” (Usher)
- “Higher and Higher” (Walt Whitman)
- “Get Ready” (Smokey Robinson)
- “Future” (Mindless Behavior)

It’s interesting that the Glee version of “Edge of Glory” was selected. We suspect Lady Gaga was unavailable (due to her Monster Ball tour), or they wanted the Glee cast but needed an inspiring song. Either way, deciding between Gaga and the Glee cast is a tough call.

We’ll be sure to share the live performances of these songs if and when they become available over the weekend. You can subscribe to this playlist through Spotify.

    It’s the Born This Way Ball not the Monster Ball.

    So are all graduates going to be back for Edge of Glory, or just those on the show now?

    Well, I was excited for this thing but now I’m less excited. I hope I get to see Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Usher, FUN and maybe Brad Paisley, Alicia Keys, other than that, no thank you. I wonder if there will be commercials during this thing?

    Beyonce’s “I Was Here” is a very beautiful ballad, and seems very fitting for the occassion,

    I’m probably in the minority but I don’t appreciate all this pomp and ceremony around an inauguration ceremony. It is supposed to be a serious affair, especially with all the issues in the world at the moment. Instead he’s acting like a 16 year old girl planning their next big party.
