Two new musical acts were added to President-elect Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day lineup Thursday, bringing the total number of confirmed performers for Jan. 20 to three.
Meanwhile, as reports of the Trump camp’s desperation to get A-list stars to perform at the ceremony grow, the list of musical artists who say they will not be there is much more lengthy.
Here’s the full rundown of people who will — and won’t — be in Washington D.C.
Evancho is probably best known for her appearances on the fifth season of the reality TV contest show “America’s Got Talent.” A classial opera singer, Evancho was just 11 years old when she finished second on the show.
Since then, she has released five studio albums, including three Christmas albums, and performed for President Obama at the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony and National Prayer Breakfast.
On Dec. 14, Evancho announced on The Today Show that she would perform the national anthem at Trump’s inauguration.
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, comprised of 360 men and women who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has performed at five previous inaugurations, according to a press release on the choir’s website. The last time came in 2001 during the inaugural parade for George W. Bush. They will perform at Trump’s swearing-in ceremony.
The choir is based in Salt Lake City, where the Mormon church’s robust presence led many political analysts to suggest that Trump’s comments about women, feud with Mitt Romney and brash political style would struggle in the state. Independent candidate Evan McMullin even appeared to be pulling even in several polls before the election.
Trump, however, carried the state by almost 18 percentage points, though he earned just 45.5 percent of the vote, the worst performance by a Republican in the state since 1964.
The Radio City Rockettes
The Rockettes, founded in 1932, have performed at both inaugurations for George W. Bush, according to a statement put out by the group’s owner.
The dance group, which is famous for its synchronized high kicks, has been a New York City institution since the 1930s and are especially popular during the holiday season.
According to Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn, the Rockettes will be involved in the inauguration festivities, which means they are unlikely to perform at the actual swearing-in ceremony.
