Inauguration 2013 Performances: Full List of Musicians Performing This Year

President Barack Obama's second inauguration will be held publically on Monday. The president will have a separate, private swearing in on Sunday.

The Sunday event will be a brief, sparsely attended ceremony in the Blue Room of the White House. The reason behind the Sunday swearing in is the Constitution requires the president's official term to start on Jan. 20. As this year that date falls on a Sunday, there will be two ceremonies; one on Sunday and a larger, public ceremony on Monday, followed by a parade and inaugural balls. 

One of the public's favorite part of all the inaugural hoopla is the fanfare and celebrity glitz it  receives. The inaugural balls feature A-list performers and this year's list does not disappoint. 

At the Commander-in-Chief's Ball, where President Obama and Vice President Biden will honor the men and women who have served our country, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, Chris Cornelll, Jamie Foxx, Marc Anthony, and Jennifer Hudson are all slated to perform. 

At The Inaugural Ball, Keys and Paisley will be joined by Black Violin, Far East Movement, fun., John Legend, Katy Perry, Mana, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Soundgarden and Usher. 

Earlier in the day at the public swearing in ceremony Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, and James Taylor will perform. Beyonce will sing the national anthem, Taylor will perform "America the Beautiful," and Clarkson will sing "My Country 'Tis Of Thee."
