Like it or not, star power is a major part of modern political campaigns. Because they’ve selected a re-animated Cheeto beast for their candidate, the Republicans were forced to scrape into the forgotten hunks of yesteryear to produce Scott Baio. Meanwhile, the Democrats had their pick of current celebs with plenty of star power. So, to deliver a powerful speech about the value of a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency, they called on Pitch Perfect 2 director, Elizabeth Banks.

She took to the stage in a flawless dress, openly mocking Donald Trump’s walk and tone-deaf use of “We Are The Champions.”

She also delivered this slam:

“Some of you know me from The Hunger Games, in which I play Effie Trinket, a cruel, out of touch reality-TV star who wears insane wigs while delivering long-winded speeches to a violent dystopia. So, when I tuned into Cleveland last week, I was like, ‘Hey! That’s my act!”

Sick burn, but this is not all Banks brought to the DNC party. Banks also unveiled her “Fight Song,” an all-star ensemble acapella cover of the Rachel Platten hit.

We spotted Banks, Sia, Mandy Moore, Archer’s Aisha Tyler, America Ferrera, Jaime King, Jane Fonda, Mary McCormack, Rob Reiner, Mike Tompkins, goddesss Connie Britton, Eva Longoria, Kathy Najimy, Broadway legends Ellen Greene, Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel, Nikki Reed and husband Ian Somerhalder, Modern Family’s Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Pitch Perfect 2’s Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Ben Platt, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, and John Michael Higgins.

So basically: #Squadgoals
