The run-up to Biden's inauguration has been a tense one, to say the least.

Since his election victory on November 7th, our country has experienced political tensions like never before.

Most people argue that Biden's win was a fair one...

After 4 long days of vote counting - and plenty of recounting - the Democrat was projected as the forty-sixth President of the United States.

Upon the news of his victory, Biden Tweeted this:

"America, I'm honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country. The work ahead of us will be hard, but I promise you this: I will be a President for all Americans — whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the faith that you have placed in me."

However, people on the other side of the political spectrum are not convinced by the legitimacy of the Biden-Harris win.

Trump instantly attacked Biden's win with several accusations of electoral fraud - all of which are yet to be proven or backed up with any evidence.

Of course, his loyal supporters lapped up his unfortified claims without hesitation...

And, as a result, the already tense divide between the Republicans and the Democrats only deepened.

Clearly, Trump had been doing everything in his power to challenge the election result...

But, on January 6th, enraged Trump supporters took matters into their own hands.

After repeated instructions by the former president to "fight for the White House," hundreds of his supporters stormed the U.S Capitol...

During which a joint session of Congress had convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's election win.

Things quickly became violent...

And the world watched on, horrified, as the building was overtaken and vandalized by the rioters.

It was clear to see that the police were completely overwhelmed...

Getty

And disgracefully underprepared.

But now that both candidates have been officially sworn-in without any disturbances, it seems as though people's focus has shifted to something else entirely...

Getty

And yes, it involves Lady Gaga.

Before the inauguration, it was announced that the pop singer would be performing the national anthem at the event...

Getty

Which was a performance we were all excited about...

We were even more excited when she posted this yesterday:

She also had some hopeful words for the American people before the special day...

"I pray tomorrow will be a day of peace for all Americans. A day for love, not hatred. A day for acceptance, not fear," she wrote.

Captioning a photo of herself in a Leia Organa themed outfit in the Capitol rotunda.

"A day for dreaming of our future joy as a country. A dream that is non-violent, a dream that provides safety for our souls," she continued. "Love, from the Capitol 🇺🇸."

Gaga shared that she was "deeply honored" to perform at the event...

And even though her rendition of the anthem was nothing short of amazing...

Getty

Some people couldn't help but focus on something else...

It seems as though a lot of critics aren't happy about the fact that the singer chose not to wear a mask...

Getty

Even though she has been "preaching" about the measures on the lead up to the event.
