President-elect Donald Trump said via Twitter he doesn’t want “so-called ‘A’ list celebrities” to attend his presidential inauguration in January.

Thursday night, the president-elect tweeted that he would rather have “the people” at his inauguration swearing-in ceremony at the U.S. Capitol next month in Washington, D.C than those members of Hollywood who did “nothing” for Hillary Clinton’s run for the White House. (RELATED: DC Metro’s Inauguration Day Card Omits Any Mention Of Trump)

“The so-called ‘A’ list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE,” Trump tweeted. (RELATED: Angry Celebrities Call For Electoral College Coup Against Donald Trump [VIDEO])


As previously reported, Trump allegedly wants nothing to do with big name Hollywood performers for his inauguration celebrations either, according to TMZ.

So far celebrities who are confirmed to be performing at his celebration include the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the famous Radio City Hall Rockettes.

“The Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a great tradition of performing at the inaugurals of U.S. presidents,” Ron Jarrett, president of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, said. “Singing the music of America is one of the things we do best. We are honored to be able to serve our country by providing music for the inauguration of our next president.”

Boris Ephshteyn, Director of Communications for Trump’s Inaugural committee told CNN Thursday, that the high-kicking dancers will perform at the ceremony.

“We’re extremely excited,” Epshteyn said.  “We’ve had a ton of great performers, entertainers, and just Americans reaching out wanting to be a part [of it]. And I can announce right now on your air that the Radio City Rockettes will be taking part in the inauguration celebration.”

The Beach Boys have reportedly been asked to perform but, “no decision has been made at this point.”

Singer Andrea Bocelli recently backed out of performing at the ceremony amid backlash from his fans. Country singer Garth Brooks has also declined to perform over negative pressure from fans, another report claims.

“They both bowed to the pressure,” one source said. “Their phones were blowing up, and they decided it just wasn’t worth it.”
