Lady Gaga, BTS and the Obamas Will Headline a Virtual Grad Ceremony for the Class of 2020
Published May 05, 2020It's shaping up to be a weird year, and things just keep getting stranger. Thanks to the coronavirus and social distancing measures, it's unlikely that students will get to celebrate their graduations in person this year. But YouTube has stepped up to the plate with plans for a star-studded virtual grad ceremony.
On June 6, YouTube will host a special called "Dear Class of 2020." The event will feature commencement addresses from both Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, respectively, plus a joint speech from them both.
Other celebs set to appear include BTS, Lady Gaga, former secretary of defense Robert M. Gates, Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, and Malala Yousafzai.
Best of all, BTS will perform at a virtual grad night after-party. No word yet on whose parents are out of town for the real after-party.
