Stephen Colbert, Uncle Sam (a.k.a. Jon Stewart), Hamilton (a.k.a. Javier Munoz) and a little orphan encouraged viewers across America to get out and vote tomorrow with a showstopping musical number! What’s more, they encouraged voters to not cast their ballots for a ‘wussy’!
If the opening of The Late Show on Nov. 7 didn’t encourage you to vote, we don’t know what will! Stephen Colbert opened the show with a musical number that started with him and a little girl dressed as an orphan singing about voter intimidation (of course), followed by a surprise appearance by Jon Stewart dressed as Uncle Sam (naturally), then a surprise rap by Hamilton‘s Javier Munoz (duh) and a group finish that included a firefighter, an astronaut, and a crossing guard, all singing in unison about the importance of voting on Nov. 8.
Jon even found a way to make a musical dig at Donald Trump, by singing don’t vote for the “wussy,” who will “try to grab your mom’s…” Whoa, Jon! “Not in front of the child,” Stephen said. It’s so funny, you have to see it for yourself.

Stephen was busy encouraging the little girl to exercise her right to vote, when Jon came out as Uncle Sam telling her it was her right not to as well. But then, when Stephen told Jon that Donald was running, he did a hilarious spit-take on Stephen. Then they did one more for a huge laugh. After that they both insisted, “You’re voting young lady!”
Then Javier came rolling up on stage and rapped about how important it is that everyone vote on Nov. 8. “History has its eyes on you.” Yes they do! “It’s all agreed. We’re all voting tomorrow! Because now is the time,” they all sang in unison as a huge crew dressed as different professions came out behind them to encourage people to go vote!
