Buzz developed this week about Michele possibly getting picked to perform at tomorrow’s event.

Donald Trump’s inauguration has hit a few speed bumps over the last two months, with numerous performers – including a Bruce Springsteen tribute band – pulling out. However, the team behind the inauguration are likely thanking their lucky stars as Grammy-winner Chrisette Michele – who recently appeared on Obama’s 2016 playlist – has reportedly agreed to play.

The rumor even sparked a less than friendly reaction from The Roots’ Questlove.

This week, New York rapper Azealia Banks expressed an interest in performing at Trump’s inauguration.
