Tomorrow's the big day, and you're either super psyched for it, or you're preparing to stick your head in the oven.


Either way, here's a rundown of who's playing DONALD TRUMP's inauguration . . . and who's protesting it.



The Supporters:



TOBY KEITH is helping to kick things off by playing TONIGHT at the pre-inaugural Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial.



He'll be joined by 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood, and R&B legend Sam Moore . . . formerly of the legendary duo Sam & Dave, who did "Soul Man"


There will also be a performance by the Frontmen of Country . . . featuring Lonestar's Richie McDonald, Restless Heart's Larry Stewart, and former Little Texas singer Tim Rushlow.



Jon Voight will speak at the event.



Also Thursday night, Big & Rich will be joined by Cowboy Troy at the Great America Alliance Inaugural Gala.



As for the actual inauguration on Friday, JACKIE EVANCHO from "America's Got Talent" is singing the national anthem.  And even though there's been some controversy, the Radio City Rockettes are still slated to perform.



The Mormon Tabernacle Choir will also perform at the ceremony.



Tim Rushlow from the Frontmen of Country returns Friday night, when Tim Rushlow & His Big Band play standards from the American songbook at the Freedom Ball.  



Their selections will include Frank Sinatra's "My Way" for Donald and MELANIA's first dance.



Tony Orlando and Dawn will perform at the Salute to Our Armed Services Ball . . . and there are unconfirmed reports that the Beach Boys are playing an event tonight, and Michael Flatley will dance for Donald tomorrow. 



(Check out a few more performers here.  So is Trump lying when he says the "biggest celebrities in the world" are coming to his inauguration?  Discuss.)
