John Legend got behind his piano and delivered some “feel good” vibes during his performance during Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ inauguration special. Watch the EGOT’s performance, plus deets on his wife Chrissy Teigen scoring a follow from Biden inside…

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States yesterday, launching a peaceful era across the nation.

After the day’s festivities, Biden’s “Celebrating America” inauguration primetime special aired, hosted by Tom Hanks, on television. Seated behind a grand piano near the Lincoln Memorial, John Legend delivered his rendition of “Feeling Good,” which was made famous by legendary artist Nina Simone in the ‘60s.

Catch the good vibes below:

He killed it!

After his performance, the EGOT thanked Biden for asking him to perform:

”Thank you for asking me to perform. It was so special for me to celebrate with the nation in front of the memorial to one of our greatest presidents. AND I loved honoring the late great Nina Simone, my constant source of musical inspiration,” he tweeted.

Earlier yesterday, John’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, hopped on Twitter where she jokingly asked Joe Biden to follow her since the @POTUS account that was run by Trump blocked her years ago:

”I have been blocked by the president for four years can I get a follow plz,” she tweeted.

Trump blocked Chrissy in Sumer 2017 after she tweeted him, “Lol, no one likes you.” Ha!

It worked!

The model mom has officially been unblocked by the @POTUS account and it’s now following Chrissy. She’s the only celebrity the account follows at this time:

”OH MY GOD!! I can finally see the president’s tweets and they probably won’t be unhinged,” she tweeted after Biden started following her.

Sweet!

John & Chrissy were in Washington D.C. yesterday for the festivities and they brought their kiddies, Luna & Miles Stephens:

Singer Demi Lovato did a cover of Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” with help from some virtual backup singers. Peep the clip above.

Singer Katy Perry – wearing an all-white Thom Browne ensemble – literally lit up the inauguration event with a performance of her track “Firework” outside of the Capitol as fireworks exploded in the air. Check it below:

Now, it’s time to get to work!  Day 1 has already been a busy one:
