Democratic candidate Joe Biden predicted victory when he stood meters from pop star Lady Gaga on Monday night in Pittsburgh, his last campaign appearance before election day.

"Folks, I feel like we're going to get together tomorrow for a big win," Biden said after joking that the western and eastern Pennsylvanians had reason to be happy because the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia are both right now had won.

"It's time for Donald Trump to pack his bags and go home," added Biden.

Gaga pitched the Pittsburgh crowd that they finally had a chance to make Trump pay for his infamous "Grab & # 39; em by the p ****" comments – by voting for Biden in Pennsylvania on Tuesday .

"Now is your chance to vote against Donald Trump, a man who believes that his fame gives him the right to grab one of your daughters or sisters or mothers or women by any part of their body," the singer told a car conference Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pitt Panthers.

"Vote for Joe, he's a good person," she added.

Gaga later played & # 39; Shallow & # 39; and & # 39; You and I & # 39; on a white piano.

She told the crowd about how she had previously lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, thanks to an ex-fiancé living there, but called Biden announcing from Scranton, her new Pennsylvania guy.

Biden visited Oakland with Gaga, who stood under Pitt's famous Cathedral of Learning, to encourage young voters to vote on election day.

“You can have that choice. You can own it. I'm serious. I count on you. We are counting on you, "Biden told a group of students, some of whom were working outside of volunteering for the Democratic campaign.

Gaga wore a dazzling & # 39; VOTE & # 39; mask, a black pant suit with a large bow and sky-high heels. She wore a fan that said, "I'm a Biden and Harris fan," even though it was 39 degrees.

"Now Lady Gaga will speak and I will sing," joked Biden earlier during a surprise stop on the University of Pittsburgh campus.

"We've been friends for a while – I can't thank you enough for everything you do," Biden told the pop star.

& # 39; I'm so excited. That's wonderful. Thank you all, ”said Gaga.

Across the state, John Legend will play the same role in Philadelphia, alongside Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate Kamala Harris.

The legend supported Senator Elizabeth Warren in Democratic Elementary School 2020.

The Philadelphia performance of Legend – and a brief speech by Patti LaBelle – were shown on the Jumbotron screens at the Pittsburgh event.

The singer brought Ms. Chrissy Teigen and the couple's two children to perform on stage. The legend played "Never Break", inspired by Teigen, who miscarried in early autumn.

As he spoke to the crowd, he reminded them that he had attended the University of Pennsylvania at Philly.

"But don't hold me responsible for all of our alumni," said Legend. "Some of them, you know, slip through the cracks."

Trump attended Penn & # 39; s Wharton Business School.

The legend also went after the handful of hip-hop stars who recently came out for Trump, including 50 Cent who complained about Biden's tax plan, which taxes Americans who make more than $ 400,000 a year more than they pay now.

"Some of your favorite former rappers got caught up in these lies," Legend said. I think they formed a new supergroup, "the sunken place," he said, a "get out" reference.

The legend then surprised the drive-in crowd and brought in Common to perform their civil rights anthem from the movie "Selma", "Glory".

The celebrity surrogates were added to the schedule on Sunday.

& # 39; Good morning PENNSYLVANIA! I'm so excited to see you today and SING for you !!!!!!! "Gaga tweeted Monday morning before arriving at one of the bluest population centers in Pennsylvania.

The announcement that she would perform with Biden was warmly welcomed by the Trump campaign, which immediately labeled her an "anti-fracking activist".

The pop star reacted cheerfully to a statement from the Trump campaign released by communications director Tim Murtaugh on Sunday evening.

"HEY TIM HEY," she wrote. "SO HAPPY TO LIVE IN THE GLAD, LIVE FREE IN YOUR HEAD."

She hashtagged the tweet with Biden-Harris.

On Saturday, Gaga was criticized for appearing in a video that made fun of "rednecks".

“Hey, this is Lady Gaga. I am voting for America, which means that I am voting for Joe Biden, ”she says on the spot.

The pop star is camouflaged – but with over-the-knee boots and large sunglasses – and drinks a beer while leaning on a pickup truck.

Trump, who is concluding his five rallies in Grand Rapids, Michigan – where he ended his campaign in 2016 – may find Gaga's appearance as a welcome sign as he is – as the New York Times recently said – very superstitious.

Lady Gaga also appeared on behalf of Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic nominee rally.

At an earlier event in Pittsburgh aimed at black voters in the North Point Breeze and Homewood neighborhoods, Biden performed with a local celebrity, former Pittsburgh Steeler Franco Harris.

The ex-senator and former vice president told the audience how the Rooney family, owners of Pittsburgh's six-time NFL Super Bowl-winning franchise, had been there for him after his first wife and young daughter were killed in a car accident in 1972 had been.

"The Rooney family had flown out with a few players: Rocky Bleier and Franco Harris with the footballs and no ads," Biden told the crowd. You spent 45 minutes with my boys. Then they got on the plane and went home. & # 39;

"We are as a country. We look out for each other," added Biden.

Biden's wife, Jill, also did her part in securing the vote in the Pittsburgh area by stopping by a sheetz on Monday. The chain of gas stations is a favorite of western Pennsylvanians, where there is a violent conflict with Philadelphia's Wawa.
