There’s been a lot of handwringing from entertainers and creative types about the upcoming inauguration. Fashion designers have declared preemptively that they would not dress Melania Trump, and a member of the Radio City Rockettes told Marie Claire that dancers were traumatized and sobbing at the prospect they might have to perform.
TIME recently published its roundup of singers and other entertainers who’ve spoken out about the inauguration.
22 entertainers sound off on whether or not they'd perform for Donald Trump's inauguration https://t.co/LLGRbYEXsV

Not surprisingly, most entertainers said they’d pass. Zara Larsson “would never do it,” Eric McCormack would were his “whole brain removed” from his head, and Issa Rae declared she’d have to perform “Weekend at Bernie’s” style, propped up and having her lips moved by assistants.
@TIME honestly I have no idea who 1/2 those people are.

@TIME Fabulous reporting Time. We should care why these nobodies want to be idiots and not preform…why?

@TIME the truth is it would be an honor for them

TIME didn’t check in with this group, but that’s OK — they let it be known they’ve been proudly appearing at inaugurations for a while now and posted a video of their moves.
