Selena Gomez celebrated the Biden/Harris win yesterday with the same amount of glee felt by parading Americans across the country. In a video on her Instagram story, she sings and dances along to Miley Cyrus's "Party in the USA" as she rides with a friend in the back of a car.

"There's a party in the USA," she says into the camera, laughing and smiling.

Cyrus also celebrated with her own song yesterday by posting this video of Biden playing "Party in the USA" on his phone at a podium:

"NOW it’s a PARTY IN THE USA! 🇺🇸🎉 @joebiden @kamalaharris," Cyrus wrote.

Gomez appeared to be in New York City yesterday during the festivities. Another Instagram user posted footage of people marching in the streets, and you can overhear Gomez saying "No one is illegal!" in the background.

Ahead of the election Gomez has been doing a lot of work to get out the vote and has encouraged other Latina voters to go to the polls and use their voices. On October 23, she spoke on a livestream conversation with Georgia's Stacey Abrams hosted by She Se Puede.

"You're amazing, and I'm a huge fan," Abrams said to Gomez. "I also have much more street cred with my 14-year-old niece because I know you. It means a lot, because I have very little street cred with her."

Abrams, who has become a hero of the 2020 election, spoke to Gomez about why Latina, Black, and other women of color are essential to America's future.

"When I ran for office the first time, it was because I wanted to speak on behalf of communities that wanted to be included," she said. "And what I learned was that my job wasn't to speak for them; my job was to create a platform and a space for them to speak for themselves....No matter who you are, when you stand for office, you're not standing for yourself...you are creating a space so that someone that looks like you, someone that had your experience suddenly has a belief that they can do it."
