  • 21/01/2013

It's not exactly a red carpet ceremony, but United States President Barack Obama's second-term inauguration had an unmistakable Hollywood look.

There was a loud cheer for Beyonce and Jay-Z as they took their places at the Capitol to watch Obama take the public oath of office for his second term, before Beyonce sang the US national anthem.

Also during the ceremony Kelly Clarkson sang ‘My Country, ‘Tis of Thee’ and James Taylor performed ‘America the Beautiful’.

Actress Eva Longoria was seated on the platform outside the Capitol. Also in the crowd were singer Katy Perry and John Mayer.

Former Boston Celtics great Bill Russell was in the crowd too.
