YouTube’s virtual Dear Class of 2020 event is now happening one day later — on Sunday (June 7) — due to a memorial service for George Floyd being held in Raeford, N.C. on June 6.
While Swift will make a special appearance during the livestream’s first block, the K-pop boy band will be pulling double duty as commencement speakers in the second block as well as performers during the post-ceremony grad party.
Also on the docket are Lizzo and Katy Perry, who will open and close the graduation event, respectively, with special musical performances. Lizzo will open alongside the New York Philharmonic for a performance of “Pomp and Circumstance,” while Perry will “lead graduates in the ceremonial tassel turn at the end of the commencement celebration.”
YouTube’s Dear Class of 2020 will take place Sunday (June 7) starting at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT.
