So who actually attended President Trump’s Inauguration?

Donald Trump at his Inauguration Ceremony

It’s no secret President Donald Trump had some problems securing A-list talent for his Inauguration Ball.

President Obama previously had the likes of Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Stevie Wonder.

But President Trump attended three balls on his inauguration day and there were no A-listers in sight.

Jackie Evancho, 16-year-old America’s Got Talent runner-up from 2010, sang the national anthem at the swearing in ceremony.

Political figures, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, George W and Laura Bush and Democrat Jimmy Carter were also in attendance.

Other notable celebrities at various inauguration events include actor Scott Baio, Duck Dynasty reality television star Willie Robertson, Oscar-winner Jon Voight, Caitlyn Jenner and comedian Chonda Pierce.

Tony Orlando, most famous in the 1970s, sang Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.

Texas musician Josh Weathers also took to the stage, but said: ‘I know that nobody in this room knows who I am.’

In the end, the likes of Toby Keith, 3 Doors Down and Lee Greenwood performed at Trump’s Make America Great Again concert, a day prior to his inauguration.

‘We’re not playing games’

For their inaugural dance, Donald and Melania Trump danced to My Way and gave a cheeky nod to the audience.

Addressing the crowd after his inaugural dance, Trump said: ‘People that weren’t so nice to me were saying that we did a really good job today.

‘They hated to do it, but they did it.

‘And I respect that,’ he said.

‘Now,’ the president added, ‘the fun begins.’
