President-elect Donald Trump reportedly isn’t seeking any big Hollywood names or performers for his inauguration parties and events.

Trump has been critical of his former opponent Hillary Clinton, who had the support of many celebrities who she showcased at the Democratic National Convention and rallies leading up to the election. Trump has no intentions of doing that when he officially becomes president, according to TMZ.

People involved in the preparations for the inauguration have told TMZ that Trump doesn’t want it to be “over the top.” He wants the ceremony and the parties to be “strictly traditional,” TMZ reports.

Trump “is hardly engaged in the party planning at all,” according to TMZ. The president-elect is more focused on the day after his inauguration when he can get to work in the Oval Office, rather than worrying about what big names will perform to welcome his administration.

“It’s almost as January 20 doesn’t really matter to him,” sources told TMZ. “He’s looking forward to January 21–his first real work day in the White House.”
