Though focus of the night was Entertainment, the Music quickly mixed with Politics.Tony Plana
, who plays Betty's father in the television series "Ugly Betty," said he was ecstatic about President-elect Barack Obama's victory. He said an Obama administration could improve the lives of all minorities. But he also said Hispanics deserved a better spot on the inaugural festivities list. It's a concern this event tonight is not an official event of the administration. It's a little sad for me Latinos had to organize their own event," Plana said.
He said he hoped it did not mean Hispanics would be relegated to a back seat. The event was organized by the National Council of La Raza and other Hispanic organizations.David Archuleta
kicked off the night with "The Star-Spangled Banner" and he was quickly followed with Music by War.
