Alec Baldwin To The Rescue: I’ll Sing At Your Inauguration (TWEETS)

You’ve probably heard about Alec Baldwin’s hilarious portrayal of President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. You’ve also probably heard about Trump’s tweets responding to the teasing he’s gotten from Baldwin and the SNL crew.

The Upcoming Inauguration

You’ve probably also heard that some popular entertainers have turned down the invitation to perform at the inauguration. According to the Daily Beast, these performers politely declined:

  • Elton John, who said it wasn’t personal. Trump was “nice to him” when they met, but being British, he didn’t want his work used in any American elections.
  • Garth Brooks
  • Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli
  • KISS
  • Producer David Foster
  • the Washington, DC area high school marching bands

The Wrap reported that the inauguration team was offering to pay steep fees to performers and to offer plum positions to insiders who could broker an appearance by Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, or someone of similar stature in the entertainment world. No one has confirmed yet that any of those three entertainers has been contacted,
