Justin Timberlake, Usher, Scarlett Johansson, Forrest Whitaker, Glen Close, Angela Bassett, Bebe Winans, WMG head Lyor Cohen and WMG executive Kevin Liles were also in attendance for the taping.
"We all of a sudden have swagger. America, we're cool now," Timberlake said of his feelings about the inauguration of President Barack Obama.
Usher was interviewed while coordinating volunteers for an organization called Service Nation. The group was renovating a Washington, D.C., school. "We call this group 'Generation S' or service-minded youth leaders, because we have to be the change," said Usher of his fellow volunteers.
