GLEE's Darren Criss, Naya Rivera and Amber Riley were among the performers who participated in Saturday's celebration of the 2013 PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION. Below, check out the cast's cover of Amy Winehouse's Valerie and Christina Aguilera's Beautiful!

Katy Perry, Usher, Brad Paisley, Smokey Robinson, Marc Anthony, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and John Legend were among the superstars who also lent their talent to the event which drew more than 35,000 attendees. The concert was held at the Washington Convention Center over the Martin Luther King holiday weekend as the President begins his second term of office.

At today's official swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the Capitol Building, Beyonce performed The National Anthem while American Idol winner Clarkson took on My Country Tis of Thee. James Taylor sang his version of America the Beautiful.

A statement from President Obama read: "Vice President [Joe] Biden and I are honored to have these wonderfully talented musical artists perform at the Inaugural ceremony. Their music is often at the heart of the American story and speaks to folks across the country."

Broadway veteran Darren Criss recently starred in the revival of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS. Prior to his role as "Blaine Anderson" on "Glee," Darren Criss was best-known for playing "Harry Potter" in Team StarKid's A Very Potter Musical and Sequel, for which he contributed to the musical scores.
