Who Is Performing at the DNC

August 31, 2012
maryj.jpgRepublican National Convention, you had your moments of glitz and Hollywood flair. Now, it's the Democrats' turn.

Foo Fighters, Mary J. Blige and James Taylor are among the musical acts slated to perform at the Democratic National Convention. They will perform on Thursday, along with Earth, Wind and Fire, Delta Rae and Inspire the Fire. Marc Anthony will sing the national anthem.

Jessica Sanchez
will perform Wednesday, as will Branford Marsalis, who will play the national anthem. Ledisi performs Tuesday and Amber Riley (yes, of "Glee" fame -- hello, youth vote) will sing the National Anthem.

Does this line-up beat the RNC's, which included Kid Rock, Journey, 3 Doors Down and the  Oak Ridge Boys?

Depends on your tastes, and if you want your event to have the same flair as, say, Jennifer Lopez's wedding. Celebrity favorite DJ Cassidy, who has DJed for Lopez's wedding, as well as Beyonce's and Kim Kardashian's, will be providing the soundtrack on Tuesday and Wednesday. DJ Cassidy is no stranger the political stage, having DJed a presidential inaugural ball and helping to launch DJs for Obama.
