Eva Longoria, Kal Penn, Mary J. Blige, Scarlett Johansson, Earth Wind and Fire,
Kerry Washington, Tom Hank, James Taylor, and the Foo Fighters took to the stage, either performing or speaking. Common, Marc Anthony, Rosario Dawson, Jeff Bridges and Hill Harper were also among some of the other celebrities in attendance at the DNC. Ashley Judd was probably the only one there as a delegate of Tennessee.
