On Friday Oprah debuted Will.i.am’s new Barack Obama video, "It’s a New Day."

The Grammy-winning hip-hop artist put together this post-election piece in just a few days, with a little help from his friends.

Celebs I spotted in the video on the first viewing included Will’s Black Eyed Peas bandmate Fergie, Aisha Tyler, Johnathon Schaech, Harold Perrineau, Olivia Wilde, Quincy Jones, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, Gayle King and, of course, Oprah. There are also plenty of shots from Tuesday’s victory bash in Chicago. Enjoy.

My thoughts on this historic election follow after the jump.
