Read on to find out what was heard...

Now, the historical inauguration that took place earlier this month has been anticipated for a very long time.

After a long and grueling 2020 election battle between Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Donald Trump, Biden was the one who came out in full force after 4 days of counting the electoral votes.

He was projected as the forty-sixth president of the United States...

Getty

And Democrats from all across the country immediately began celebrating Biden's success.

This was a history-changing win...

Getty

Because not only did Biden receive the most votes ever in a presidential election (81,284,000 votes, to be precise), but his vice president, Kamala Harris, is the first-ever woman to be elected into office - and not to mention her being a woman of color!

Biden and Harris were officially sworn into office a week ago on January 20th...

And as President Biden said himself, "it is a new day for America."

The inauguration day was as amazing as we'd expected...

​And alongside Biden and Harris' family, a whole range of politicians and star-studded guests were there to witness the occasion.

There were performances from the likes of Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez...

And Katy Perry finished the celebrations with a stunning performance of "Fireworks" outside of the White House.

But there was one performance that people literally couldn't stop talking about...

Getty

And that was the poem that Amanda Gorman recited during the inauguration ceremony.

Gorman is a poet and an activist...

And her work focuses on issues of oppression, feminism, race, and marginalization, as well as the African diaspora.

She published the poetry book, The One for Whom Food Is Not Enough, in 2015...

And last week, she made history by being the first ever poet to recite her own work at a presidential inauguration.​

Her poem was titled, The Hill We Climb...

And she was asked to emphasize the healing power of hope and unity over divisiveness in her impactful poem, and it served as a message of inspiration to many of us.

"Finding hope doesn't mean negating the tumultuous nature of this time," Gorman explained. "It means reconciling with it, facing it head-on. And that's what I plan to do in the poem — to walk our wounds so that we might move towards a bandage."

Soon after the inauguration, her 2 upcoming books, the poetry collection The Hill We Climb and a project for youth, Change Sings: A Children's Anthem, were at the top of Amazon's bestseller list...

And both are scheduled to be released in September 2021.

​So it's safe to say...

That Gorman is a pretty inspiring young woman!

And this week, the poet appeared as a guest on The Ellen Show to discuss her life-changing gig at the inauguration...

While also dropping a few little secrets of what actually went down on that fateful day.

She admitted that she actually didn't have the chance to practice delivering her poem as much as she would've preferred...

Which, of course, wasn't noticeable at all!

"Whenever I wanted to [practice] there was an interview, or it was my mom knocking on my door, bless her heart! I kind of had to be like, 'mom, maybe stay in your hotel room for like, an hour, I need to practice this!'. So I didn't get to practice it as much as I'd have liked to, but I'm really glad that I was still able to stick the landing."

DeGeneres then asked Gorman what it was like to be sat amongst such a wide array of famous people.

Speaking of sitting next to Jennifer Lopez and her husband Alex Rodriguez, Gorman said, "My mom kind of leaned in and whispered, 'That's A-Rod!', and I asked if she wanted to get a picture and she said, 'already done!'."

And then, Gorman mentioned something that she noticed about Barack and Michelle Obama.

"[Michelle] kind of kept yelling at Barack like, 'Stop hugging people. Stop getting close to people.' And then when I was done, she kind of pushed him out of the way and gave me the biggest, warmest Michelle Obama hug."

Gorman then said:

"Hah! I mean, Barack did share embraces with everyone from Lady Gaga and Hillary Clinton to Joe and Jill Biden that day, in addition to his fair share of fist bumps. She was just looking out for her hubby's safety and well-being amid the pandemic!"
