With the coronavirus pandemic forcing people to stay inside their homes, all locked up, a lot of important things came to a halt. While some people had to cancel wedding plans, others had to shift plans to move, and graduates across the world are now losing out on a very special day - their graduation ceremony. Now, Facebook has come together with a bunch of celebrities to host a virtual #Graduation2020 ceremony on Facebook Live, to make up for the loss of an actual graduation day. The event is being hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

Facebook’s event is being co-hosted by Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak. But why is this being done? “The ceremony will acknowledge high schools and colleges in the U.S, by name, state by state, including photos and videos of the class of 2020, and messages from deans and principals across the country,” according to a statement. The ceremony is hosting live performances from a number of artists, including Miley Cyrus who is performing her super hit song The Climb.
