Donald Trump announces who will perform at his Inauguration… and it’s not Kanye

US President-elect Donald Trump has revealed who will sing the National Anthem at his Inauguration Ceremony in January.

And during his time in office, he's had audiences with the likes of James Taylor, Common, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, Jose Feliciano, Kendrick Lamar and Rihanna, to name a few.

But reports in the US have suggested that incoming president, Donald Trump, hasn't been so lucky and has been struggling to find big-name acts to perform at his inauguration ceremony on January 20.


But it looks like one singer has been confirmed: 16-year-old opera singer and former America's Got Talent contestant, Jackie Evancho.

The classically trained singer confirmed that she would be singing the US National Anthem when she appeared on America's Today Show on Wednesday.

Names like Elton John and Garth Brooks have floated around as possible entertainers for Trump's inauguration but both artists have shot down those rumours.

After Kanye West met with the Republican billionaire earlier in the week, Twitter went into meltdown with the suggestions that the Chicago rapper might perform at the ceremony.

However, the headline-grabbing meeting seems to have been tied to Kanye's wish to discuss “multicultural issues,” rather than an upcoming political performance.
We can safely assume the likes of Adele, Queen, R.E.M., and Neil Young, who’ve all objected to Trump using their music over the course of his campaign, are out of the running.

“I would never do it,” Swedish singer Zara Larsson recently declared. “And most other smart people wouldn’t do it.”
