Musician James Taylor helped to open the final night of the Democratic National Convention while offering a critique of campaign coverage.

"I've been watching the coverage," Taylor told the crowd after performing "Carolina in My Mind," a song that had delegates swaying and singing along on the floor of the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, N.C. "I don't get it. I mean: I'm an old white guy and I love Barack Obama. They must have got that one wrong."

Taylor then played "You've Got a Friend."
