ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos told Inside Edition: “You may see Donald Trump speak on more than one night. He says he wants some showbiz at this convention, and he's determined to get it.“

Indiana Governor Mike Pence is said to be Trump's running mate, according to The Indianapolis Star. The governor has dropped his re-election bid, a telltale sign of the decision. 

Trump's family will be front and center in Cleveland at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

“You know who Donald Trump loves and values — it's his family, Stephanopoulos said. "That's why you'll see a member of his family speaking out every single night, starting with Melania.” 

Trump's wife will indeed be speaking on Monday, the opening night of the convention.

On Tuesday, oldest son Donald, Jr. and youngest daughter, 22-year-old Tiffany Trump, will speak.

On Wednesday, Eric Trump will take the stage.

But Trump fans won't want to miss Thursday's lineup, with daughter Ivanka taking the mic, followed by the big acceptance speech by the billionaire himself.

“This whole convention is a surprise,” Stephanopoulos said. “Who would have thought a year ago that Donald Trump would be the nominee of the Republican Party.”

Other speakers during the week include former football star Tim Tebow, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Trump's onetime rival, Texas Senator Ted Cruz — who has yet to endorse him.

"Think about four years ago, who would have guessed that Clint Eastwood would have had that 15 minutes talking to the chair," Stephanopoulos said.

He added: "Something crazy always happens. Given what we have seen already at political rallies on this campaign, we will see the city of Cleveland, all the security really ramp up for the possibility of something going on." 

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is planning a star-studded convention of her own, with Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato and Lenny Kravitz performing when the DNC hits Philadelphia beginning July 25.
