Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson & James Taylor Tapped to Perform at President Obama's Second Inauguration

President Barack Obama's second inauguration plans are beginning to shape up. Beyonce will reportedly take the stage at the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, and will be joined by Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor during the event.

Clarkson will sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee", which Aretha Franklin sang at his first inauguration in 2009. Taylor will sing "America the Beautiful", and Beyonce will perform the national anthem.

Additional announcements regarding entertainment to the more low-key, scaled down second inauguration will be announced in the coming days.

An estimated 1.8 million people gathered on the National Mall to watch the first inauguration, however, in light of the tough economic times, the second celebration will be smaller and will feature just two official balls.
