Prom is usually a night you’ll never forget, and John Krasinski made sure that’s still true for students in quarantine.
“The Office” actor hosted a virtual prom on his YouTube channel, “Some Good News,” where he has been hosting a weekly, feel-good talk show amid the coronavirus pandemic. On Friday, Krasinski went live with Billie Eilish, the Jonas Brothers, and Chance the Rapper to give students all over the country a special prom even though theirs has been canceled.
In one clip of the live stream, Krasinski, Billie Eilish, and her brother Finneas O’Connell had trouble with an internet connection. But once the awkward technical moment was fixed, Billie launched into her hit song “Bad Guy.”
“You guys are the best,” Krasinski said. “I absolutely adore you guys. I’ve been a big fan of yours forever.”
“Shut up,” Billie responded. “You know how big of a fan I am of you. Everyone knows. Thank you for being you, John.”
The Jonas Brothers also showed up to the prom, wearing tuxedos. Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas all sang their single “Sucker” for students.
