President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration is shaping up to be quite the spectacular event. The Radio City Rockettes, famous for their Christmas Spectacular in New York City, have been confirmed as the third celebrity performer at Trump’s inauguration in Washington D.C. next month.

In an interview with CNN, inaugural committee spokesman Boris Epshteyn said, “The Rockettes are a wonderful group, they’ve been a part of American culture for decades — almost 100 years. They represent many women from around the country and they’re really what’s best about America. So, we’re very excited and honored to have them be a part of the 50th inaugural.”

The Rockettes also performed at George W. Bush’s inauguration event in 2001.

Other performers that are currently lined up include 16-year-old Jackie Evancho, an “America’s Got Talent” alumna, who will be singing the National Anthem, in addition to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. All of the confirmed performers have been met with backlash on social media.

Social Media Reacts to Trump Inauguration Performers

Artists who have publicly refused to perform at Trump’s inauguration include Elton John, Idina Menzel, John Legend and “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert. The search continues for an A-list performer for the event, which is less than one month away. The president-elect tweeted Thursday about the lack of A-list celebrities, calling on “the people” to partake in the festivities.

Inauguration Day 2017 takes place Jan. 20 beginning at noon on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
