President Obama’s final White House party is expected to outclass Donald Trump’s inauguration, as it reportedly features several top performers.

Beyonc√©, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney are among those who will be performing at Obama’s last White House party on Friday, according to the International Business Times.

Trump’s team has reportedly had some difficulty getting some of the big names in entertainment to participate in his ceremony, which will take place on Jan. 20. Some of those who have turned down invitations to perform at Trump’s inauguration include Elton John, Garth Brooks, Celine Dion, The Chainsmokers, Justin Timberlake, Andrea Bocelli, KISS, and Ice-T, according to The Wrap.

While Trump is receiving rejection notices from some of the biggest celebrities in entertainment, there are many famed individuals expected to celebrate with the Obamas before they pack their backs to leave the White House for good.

Celebrities such as Usher, Samuel L. Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Stevie Wonder, and Bradley Cooper are all expected to be in attendance for Obama’s last staple of fun of his eight-year presidency, according to Hollywood Life.

Despite the lack of attraction that Trump’s inauguration has received from some of the big names, he and his team seem to be OK with that, according to CNN.

Boris Epshteyn, director of communications for the Inaugural Committee, downplayed that major musicians have turned down invitations to attend and perform at the ceremony.

“This is not Woodstock,” Epshteyn said in a December interview with CNN. “It’s not summer jam. It’s not a concert.”

The Obama’s have been known to put on a good party in the past, Hollywood Life noted, adding that cellphones are usually forbidden and confiscated, while dancing is a must. Past parties have seen performances by the likes of Janelle Monae, Chance The Rapper, and Prince.

The president and first lady announced that they would be having this send-off when they sat down for an interview with People magazine in mid-December.
