Over the last few days, the US has been waiting for the results of Tuesday's presidential election.

Due to an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots being requested, votes are taking longer to process, which means a clear winner hasn't yet been determined.

The race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden remains very close, with paths to victory hinging on results in several key states including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Nevada.


And on Friday, Joe Biden took the lead in the historically Republican state of Georgia.

Joe Biden now leads by 917 votes out of the 4.9 million tallied, with less than 1% still to be counted. However, the margin is so narrow that a recount could be called.

It was good news for Democratic supporters who took to Twitter to share their delight — one of whom being none other than Mr John Legend.

John, who has been vocal in his support for Biden throughout the campaign and performed at a rally in Pennsylvania the night before the election, hopped onto Twitter to share a video of himself singing "Georgia on My Mind" in celebration.

However, we all know that whenever John tweets anything, his wife, Chrissy Teigen, is waiting to roast him. And today was no different.

"He has been waiting to post this for 5 hours," she wrote alongside her retweet of the video.
