President Joe Biden delivered his second State of the Union address since taking office Tuesday night, his first speech given to a divided Congress.

The president's speech at the U.S. Capitol took place about one month into the 118th Congress, where Republicans have secured the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives after two years of unified Democratic control of the federal government.

Presidents and individual members of Congress have often used the nationally televised gathering as an opportunity to promote their preferred policy goals and objectives by inviting and highlighting specific individuals they view as beneficiaries or victims of public policy solutions or problems in the U.S.

The following pages highlight eight notable guests who attended this year's State of the Union address.
