Several female celebrities are scheduled to appear at the final day of the Democratic National Convention. The lineup includes…
1. Mary J. Blige
She’ll be performing early in the night, along with Marc Anthony and Foo Fighters.
2. Scarlett Johansson
She’s scheduled to speak after a performance by the Foo Fighters and remarks by South Carolina Rep. James E. Clyburn, and before Caroline Kennedy. ScarJo is an independent who campaigned for Obama in 2008 and John Kerry in 2004.
3. Kerry Washington
Washington, an Obama ‘08 supporter, will appear alongside Johansson, who she also starred in L’Oreal commercials with.
4. Eva Longoria
Also in those L’Oreal commercials? Eva Longoria, who’s one of seven Californians with a co-chair post on Obama’s re-election team. She’ll be speaking later in the night, after former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and before Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer.
5. Alexis Bledel
It’s a little unclear what Alexis Bledel’s role at the DNC is, but she told Just Jared readers to “tune in tonight for a special live feed (at 8pm EST) to see what I’m up to here just before President Obama addresses the nation.” (But it’s good to know that Rory Gilmore is still on the Obama beat after all these years.)
6. Natalie Portman
Will the Oscar-winning actress show? She’s not on the official schedule, but rumors have been circulating about an appearance for days.
And then there are the after parties…
7. Jessica Alba
She’s hosting a closing fundraiser called Super-O-Rama at the Fillmore in Charlotte with husband Cash Warren. Pitbull and Scissor Sisters are scheduled to perform. The party is a joint effort of Priorities USA Action, Majority PAC and House Majority PAC.
