When the entire class of 2020 can’t go to prom because of the coronavirus restrictions, what do you do?

Get John Krasinski to host a virtual one instead, of course!

The actor and host of hit YouTube series Some Good News has held an online party for teens who are stuck at home because of school closures.

Krasinski wore a tuxedo for the occasion and recruited famous friends Billie Eilish and The Jonas Brothers to take part in the event too.

During the show we learn that Billie never went to her high school prom….and neither did Kevin, Nick or Joe Jonas!

The prom also featured surprise guests Rainn Wilson and Chance the Rapper.

Krasinski had announced earlier in the week that he’d be hosting the event and shared a photo of himself from his own high school prom:

Krasinski started his YouTube series Some Good News just a couple of weeks ago so he could help share some positive stories during the coronavirus pandemic. The full episode featuring the prom will be out on Sunday, April 19.
