Some artists have reportedly turned down invitations, while others are being criticized for accepting.
It seems there's as much controversy surrounding Donald Trump's inauguration as there was surrounding his campaign.
The inauguration committee has struggled to line up groups and individuals to perform.
A Trump transition team member claimed Elton John would perform, but John's publicist was quick to deny that.
The Beach Boys have reportedly been asked to perform, but they haven't decided whether they'll accept the invitation.
Thursday, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir announced it will sing at the swearing-in ceremony.
The choir has performed at inauguration events for five previous presidents: Lyndon B. Johnon, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
The New York Times has since reported that dancers' appearances are voluntary, and they're never told they must perform.
Earlier reports based on an email from the dancers' union, the American Guild of Variety Artists, indicated the dancers were required to perform, per the details of their contracts. But the statement received by the Times contracted the union's claim.
