Celebs React To The 2020 US Presidential Election Results
Joe Biden was finally announced as President Elect after an agonisingly long vote count.
Watching the news yesterday, or scrolling through social media there was a definite mood. Joy.
Joe Biden was yesterday declared President Elect of the United States, after an agonising wait for the results. Counting began on Tuesday but Covid-19 meant far more mail-in ballots than usual which slowed down the process.
Kamala Harris will be joining Joe Biden in the White House as Vice President Elect, the first female and woman of colour to do so. Whatever your politics, it’s a historic moment for America.
Many A-listers were quick to share their happiness at the news, even some who hadn’t declared who they were voting for previously.
Best moment of my life (and kids?) https://t.co/UBzWAVH6yV

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend were watching and tweeting from their home in Beverley Hills up until the announcement was made.
Both are very vocally anti-Trump and took to the streets to celebrate after!

Kim had not revealed who she voted for in this election, with her husband Kanye West in the running this year and having met Donald Trump previously, fans weren’t sure which way she was leaning.
It seemed she may have voted for Biden after all as she shared his concession video to Twitter yesterday as well as a video of VP Kamala Harris.
