The graduating class will also be treated to performances from Lizzo, Camila Cabello, Chloe x Halle, and Maluma.

After the symbolic graduation cap toss, the festivities will continue with a grad night party hosted by YouTube Music featuring performances from Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, BTS, and CNCO.

“Dear Class of 2020” will stream live on June 6 starting at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT.
