His team knows the Inauguration is a perfect opportunity to appeal to as many demographics as possible, which would explain the musical performers who were announced today.
But the question remains, who is the Obama administration targeting with each performer? Specifically?

Please hold the Mayan apocalypse jokes, but Kim Kardashian is pregnant with Kanye West's baby. Kanye made the announcement during his concert in Atlantic City, telling the audience, "Stop the music and make some noise for my baby mama" while pointing to Kardashian.
This Internet-exploding news wouldn't have political implications, except as a way to avenge the British for believing that they could out-celebrity-baby the United States, were it not for a certain Kanye lyric…
And I'll never let my son have an ego
He'll be nice to everyone, wherever we go I mean
I might even make him be Republican
So everybody know he love white people
Various Bush progeny have dibs on the next few election cycles, but come 2048, Kimye is going to be apocryphally quoting Thomas Jefferson on "the government you elect is the government deserve" at his inaugural address.

Have you ever been attacked by a pack of rabid skunks? It sucks right? But remember how when you were in the hospital and the skunks were still managing to find you and feast upon your flesh when the nurses weren't looking, you got some nice flowers and you didn't have to do your own laundry for a few weeks? Well, if the skunks are the Bush presidency, then the flowers and laundry thing were The Daily Show's comfortingly hilarious coverage, and last night we got to enjoy some flowers and no-laundry again without having to relive the agony of that whole skunk debacle.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

This morning, on The Today Show, a great American hero stared down his greatest nightmare — somebody whom he has never met saying something mean about him — and emerged victorious…
No human being should ever have to endure such hurtful opinions coming from a borderline insane person — least of all a person whose whimsies had the potential to alter millions of peoples' lives — so, you've really got to respect Bush for allowing this incident to be considered water over the levees.
