CHARLOTTE, NC - The 2012 DNC has been pretty low-key when it comes to showcasing celebrity supporters of Barack Obama.  Until tonight.  Now that Obama's big moment has arrived, the A-listers have come out of the woodwork.  Tonight's red carpet convention rundown:

Singer/songwriter James Taylor

Recording artist Marc Anthony

Recording artist Mary J. Blige

Rock Band The Foo Fighters

Actress Scarlett Johansson

Actress Kerry Washington

Actress Eva Longoria


...and the the most famous man on earth.  I'm reminded of the most effective McCain ad of 2008, which was instantly branded as "racist" by the media, natch:

Can Obama recapture the magic tonight?
