Why would a question about President Trump prompt Cher to eat cow's tongue? CNN's Jeanne Moos reports. Cher Eats Tongue Cher eats COW tongue rather than answer a question about Donald Trump. Cher and Trump have a history of bad blood. She's always tweeting horrible things about him. Then James Corden put her on the spot in a segment of his show called Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts in which a celeb has to choose between answering a delicate question or eating some god awful dish like cow tongue. When Corden asked Cher to name one good thing about trump, Cher bit the bullet, or rather the tongue. This happened on Corden's show which is coming from Britain this week. Will also include fab Carpool Karaoke of Corden and Paul McCartney singing "Baby You Can Drive My Car."

The Rockettes also performed at George W. Bush's 2001 presidential inauguration

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be performing at the swearing-in ceremony

(CNN) —  

Looks like President-elect Donald Trump will be holding an Inauguration Day Spectacular.

Inaugural committee spokesman Boris Epshteyn told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Thursday that the Radio City Rockettes will perform at the Washington ceremony next month.

“We’re extremely excited. 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,” he said.

The Rockettes are among high-profile performers booked so far for the inauguration, which has so far failed to attract the kind of star power that came to President Barack Obama’s inaugurations. Some major acts, such as Elton John, have declined to perform at Trump’s ceremony.

Apparently acknowledging the issue, Trump tweeted Thursday night, “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!”

Baldwin asked if there are more big entertainment names that he is keeping under wraps.

“We are not putting on Woodstock,” Epshteyn replied. “We are not putting on Summer Jam. We are putting on an inauguration.”

Asked who Epshteyn’s top three artists to perform at the event would be, he said, “It’s not about artists. My top three people I’d like to see at the inaugural are Donald J. Trump, Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump.”

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

“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,” Epshteyn said.

He also confirmed that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be performing at the swearing-in ceremony.

Former “America’s Got Talent” contestant Jackie Evancho will be singing the national anthem, Epshteyn said. Evancho also performed for Obama at the lighting of the national Christmas tree in 2010.
