On Saturday, November 7th—after four nights of waiting for mail-in ballots to be counted—Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were announced as the projected winners of the 2020 presidential election. Having flipped the two major states of Georgia and Pennsylvania, both of which Trump won in the 2016 election, Biden won both the electoral college and the popular vote, beating President Trump by over 4 million votes.

Celebrities who backed Biden during his campaign took to social media to celebrate his win, as well as drive home the gravity of Harris becoming the first Black woman, Asian American woman, and woman period to enter into office as Vice President of the United States.

And as these celebrities will tell you, this Democratic win is a major cause for celebration.

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend joined the masses in celebrating in the streets of West Hollywood. "Everyone is so beautiful and so happy I'm crying," Teigen wrote in a November 7th retweet from the parade.
