President Barack Obama is pulling out all the stops for his final day of campaigning before voters head to the polls on Nov. 6.

With Election Day less than a week away, the Commander-in-Chief, 51, has called on two of his biggest and most famous supporters -- rock legend Bruce Springsteen and hip hop mogul Jay-Z -- to help wrap up his campaign in style. Both will join the President at his final rallies on Monday, Nov. 5.

The star-studded push will kick off in Madison, Wis., where Springsteen, 63, will perform and introduce the POTUS. The two will then head to Columbus, Ohio, where they will be joined onstage by the "Empire State of Mind" rapper, 44, a longtime pal. (Both Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce Knowles, have stumped for Obama in the past. They even held a $40,000-per-head fundraiser for the campaign in September.)

The final stop on Obama's trail will be Des Moines, Iowa, the state that launched his first successful run for President in 2008. There, he will hold his final rally, with a third performance by Springsteen and a special appearance by First Lady Michelle Obama
