Lizzo marked the win on Instagram with an emotional video, where she explained what the new administration means for her.
Speaking on the video, she said: "There are a few times in this country, where I’m hopeful. Like every time I’m hopeful it gets taken away from me. And this time I was hopeful, and I was scared.
"And I’m so excited to see a black woman in the White House, a brown woman in the White House, and be an American woman in the White House. And I’m so ready to see if America can hold itself accountable. If we can go into a new era where people are listened to, and fundamental changes can happen so that we can all live here, equally."

Of course, one of our favourite reactions came from Cardi B who posted a series of videos, writing: "I knew it !!!! I’m so happy ! Great way to start my day !!Congrats BIDENXKamala!"
Earlier in the week, she had shared a relatable video of herself feeling disheartened as she watched voting results come in on Tuesday night. "How these elections got me watching these states turn red 😒😒😒😒," she wrote in the caption of a short clip showing her smoke three cigarettes at once whilst shaking her head.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian, who hasn't directly announced who she voted for, gave us a strong indicator that she was on Team Biden/Harris as she liked rapper Kid Cudi's tweet (opens in new tab) endorsing the Democratic candidate. His tweet read: "Vote for Biden if you a real one."
Unlike Kim, her husband Kanye West did share his vote, revealing that it was his first time exercising his right to do so and that in true Kanye form, his vote went to himself.
"The first vote of my life We are here to serve We pray for every servant leader in the world," he tweeted, alongside a video of himself at the polling station.
The reality TV star celebrated the win with a picture of Biden and Harris.

Congratulations to President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris! Thank you for choosing to serve your country during these challenging times. pic.twitter.com/PEEPFexKFFNovember 7, 2020
Always one to lift our spirits, Chrissy made election night a little more bearable for us by tweeting throughout the night. "It’s insane what *our* fears are if we lose, compared to their fears if Biden wins. like we will prob all die or be handmaids and they’re worried about bathroom safety," she tweeted.
She even started "stress cooking" some guacamole at one point which she shared a video of.
As the wait for election results continued, Chrissy expressed her exhaustion with a hilarious picture of herself and her dog watching live coverage at midnight on Thursday. "I honestly dunno how steve (her dog) is still going im bout to die," she tweeted alongside it.
She was finally able to celebrate alongside her husband, John Legend.

Riverdale star Lili Reinhart celebrated by celebrating Harris appointment as VP. Earlier in the week she had turned to food for comfort during the stressful election night. "Just ordered an incredible amount of food because I’m an emotional eater and I’m scared," she joked on Twitter.
After watching the initial results come in, she then voiced her frustrations, following up with a second tweet (opens in new tab) that read: "I just don’t understand how all of the racist, homophobic, immoral, transphobic, misogynistic things Trump has said and stood for wasn’t a deal breaker for this many Americans."

CRYING @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris 🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍🤍 THANK GODNovember 7, 2020
It's a big emotional day for everyone, with Ariana writing: "CRYING @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris THANK GOD".
Earlier this week, and amid the conversations about election fraud and manipulation, Ariana Grande simply shared information of voters protection hotlines for every State with her fans. The image she shared read: "Call if you witness or experience voter intimidation or harassment happening at your polling station." While the second slide simply read: "count every mf vote."
Like Ariana Grande, Rihanna made it clear how she felt about the importance of counting every single vote as she dedicated six posts on her Instagram page to make the statement "Count every vote, we'll wait."
Her post came shortly after Trump sued the state of Pennsylvania to halt their vote counting. She's yet to post about the results.
Also - stop worrying what I tweet, BIDEN WON YALL 🥳🥳🥳😂😂😂November 7, 2020
Demi Lovato celebrated the win on Twitter, by writing: "Also - stop worrying what I tweet, BIDEN WON YALL".
Earlier in the week, the singer had expressed her disappointment at how close the numbers between Trump and Biden were earlier this week, tweeting: "Kind of terribly sad how close this election was. After this year and especially this summer it should’ve been a landslide. I don’t get it. Truly."
However, she kept spirits up by saying she's "not losing hope" and that her "faith is strong."
