Jon Bon Jovi is among the first batch of confirmed musicians set to perform during Celebrating America, a live 90-minute special airing the evening of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.

Per USA Today, the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) confirmed the special will also feature performances from Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato and Ant Clemons. More performers will be announced closer to the special.

Tom Hanks will be hosting Celebrating America, which will air at 8:30 PM EST/PST on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC and MSNBC. The special will also stream online via the following platforms: The PIC’s YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch accounts; Amazon Prime Video; Microsoft Bing; NewsNOW from Fox; and AT&T DirecTV and U-verse.
