It may not be prom season, but that's certainly not stopping Netflix, Janelle Monáe, Galantis and Jonathan Van Ness from throwing their own digital dance.

On Tuesday (Dec. 15), Netflix announced their brand new virtual event, "The Prom: Tonight Belongs to You," a livestream celebration of Ryan Murphy's new Netflix film The Prom. Hosted by Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness, the event will feature a special headlining performance from Monáe, followed by a full DJ set from Galantis.

Along with these special performances, the event is also set to feature multiple cast members from the Netflix film (based on the 2018 Broadway musical of the same name), including stars such as Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, Keegan-Michael Key, Andrew Rannells, Jo Ellen Pellman, Ariana DeBose, Nico Greetham, Logan Riley, Nathaniel J. Potvin, Sofia Deler, and Kerry Washington.

“Prom is such a special event for most people, and I can’t be more excited to be hosting 'The Prom: Tonight Belongs to You' so we can build a prom for everyone,” Van Ness said in a statement released with the news. “Everyone deserves to be celebrated, loved and appreciated! So come join us and bring your 'Unruly Heart,' and definitely your 'Zazz' hands!”

"The Prom: Tonight Belongs to You" will stream live from Netflix's YouTube channel Saturday, Dec. 19, at 8 p.m. ET.
