What event inspires hugs from Shonda Rhimes, words of wisdom from Elizabeth Warren and a little Eminem? Only the Democratic National Convention.

A new behind-the-scenes video from Hillary for America gives viewers a backstage pass for last week’s convention in Philadelphia.

Choice highlights? For one, Warren’s advice to Sarah Silverman ahead of the comedian’s speech: “Tough women have to get it done, right?”

Later, former President Bill Clinton watches wife Hillary Clinton speak from backstage, with Meryl Streep perched nearby.

The former secretary of state greets running mate Tim Kaine with a triumphant cheer while President Barack Obama gets pumped up for his speech with a little dance session to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”

Later, the president chats about his speech with Bill backstage, joking, “I hope you don’t mind me saying, she’s a little more qualified than you.”

“You should be proud of her,” Obama adds to the former commander-in-chief.

Bill responds, “I am so proud.”
