Glee Cast, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley To Perform at Inaugural Events

The Glee Cast, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley and more are set to perform at 3 Inaugural events.

The Presidential Inauguration Committee announced today the guest list for the Inaugural kids’ concert and balls would include artists from across the musical spectrum. Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, Far East Movement, fun., members of the cast of Glee, John Legend, Katy Perry, Marc Anthony, Mindless Behavior, Nick Cannon, Smokey Robinson, Soul Children of Chicago, Stevie Wonder and Usher plan to take part in the festivities.

Three balls are scheduled for the Obama 2nd inaugural: The Commander-in-Cheif’s ball and The Inaugural Ball are set for Jan 21. First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden will hot the Kid’s Inaugural Concert on Saturday, Jan. 19.

I’m assuming the Glee cast will perform at the kid’s concert, but the White House did not release details about which celebrities would perform where.

It has already been reported that Kelly Clarkson, James Taylor and Beyonce will perform patriotic songs at the inauguration ceremony. Read more about that here.

    Glee cast members ? with an s for plural ??wow ! Hopefully it will be Lea Michele (Rachel), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Naya Rivera (Santana) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) singing “How will I know” from Whitney Houston… That would be great !

    Or a Naya Rivera and Darren Criss (Blaine) duet.
    Or Lea, Amber, Darren and Chris singing “my favorite things”…
    Or Amber Riley and Chord Overstreet (Sam) singing “Human nature” from Michael Jackson… and the other members as a choir…
     sigh, keep on dreaming…
