YouTube sensations The Piano Guys performed at the Trump Inauguration concert last night at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. The concert only had 10,000 attendees while the 2007 concert for President Barack Obama had 400,000. Donald and Melania Trump along with their family were seated by the stage behind a protective barricade as performers like 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith, and Jon Voight played. The real-estate mogul reportedly had difficulty enlisting A-listers to play at the celebration, with a number of stars – like Celine Dion and Elton John – refusing to perform.
The Piano Guys broke open a piano to sing One Direction’s “Thats What Makes You Beautiful.” But one thing stood out. As the lead singer asked the crowd to “stand up if you love America,” Donald Trump allegedly didn’t stand. Melanie had to nudge him.
Users took to Twitter to acknowledge this quirk. Vincent Patierno writes, “if you love America please stand up! **Trump: remains sitting.”
Cher, Julienne Moore, Katy Perry and Amy Schumer have said they will join an anticipated 220,000 crowd protesting The Donald at the Women’s March on Washington, set to take place the day after the inauguration.
