(CNN) –- Hollywood, shove over. Next weekend, it’s DC’s turn to sparkle.
Leading up to Barack Obama’s inauguration next Tuesday, the streets of the nation’s capital will be lined with red carpets to welcome hordes of stars in town to celebrate. Hot shots from the music industry and the silver screen will host events all over town in a four-day marathon of parties and special events.
Some celebrities coming to Washington were fixtures for Obama on the campaign trail, raising money and support for his successful presidential bid. Jay-Z is performing at a sold-out concert at the Warner Theatre on Monday night, while Oprah, one of Obama’s most powerful supporters, will tape her show from Washington inauguration week.
Bruce Springsteen, who appeared at several Obama campaign rallies, is rumored to be singing at a star-studded concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday night, along with other performers yet to be named. Mary J. Blige will be in Washington for the BET Honors on Saturday, and Nelly and Will.I.Am will perform at concerts sponsored by the Hip Hop Caucus. Pop stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers are reportedly headlining a free concert for children at the Verizon Center on Monday night.
Obama snagged a large percentage of young voters thanks to groups like Declare Yourself, a grassroots organization that was dedicated to getting 18-year-olds to register and vote. The group will celebrate with an event hosted by Jessica Alba and featuring performances by Maroon 5, DJ Samantha Ronson and some other surprises.
Inauguration Day promises more celebrity sightings all over town, starting with a performance by Aretha Franklin on the steps of the U.S. Capitol during Obama’s swearing-in ceremony.
There will be dozens of balls all over Washington in the evening - and while Obama will only stop by ten of them, others are sure to attract paparazzi attention. Ludacris will host the American Music Urban Ball, while Dionne Warwick hosts the American Music Ball of Legends.
But the Creative Coalition’s inaugural gala, taking place at the Harman Center in Washington, promises the most star-studded lineup: Anne Hathaway, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Susan Sarandon, Ashley Judd and Maggie Gyllenhaal are all expected to show up.
With more than a week to go until the big day, there’s still time for more celebrities and star-studded affairs to pop up.
