Katy Perry speaks at Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's election night party at Javits Center on Nov. 8, 2016 in New York City. 

Plus: All the songs played at the event -- which was looking less and less like a victory party.

Hillary Clinton has used music to back her campaign throughout the entire 2016 election, whether it was Spotify playlists or live performances from her famous supporters at rallies. So it's no surprise that music was front and center at Clinton's Election Night party on Tuesday night (Nov. 8), including a speech from longtime supporter and pop superstar Katy Perry, who admitted from the event's stage that the support was not universal in her family.

Perry -- who started her career as a Christian singer -- revealed that her Republican and born again Christian parents Keith Hudson and Mary Perry voted for Trump. "But you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving," she said. "And this is the moment we need to remember that we all love our parents, and we all love our children."

While the event was looking less and less likely to turn into a victory party as votes poured in, music played throughout the night. So we rounded up those songs here.

Amid some of the presidential-esque fanfare that played during the rally were popular songs that are both inspirational and danceable, including Perry's music, which was featured twice in the night's playlist. See all the songs that were included in the rally and take a listen to distract yourself from your nerves over the neck and neck results.
