Actor John Krasinski hosted a virtual prom to help high school students around the nation that have missed out on going to their school dance due to the coronavirus.

Krasinski hosted the virtual dance on Friday evening with featured guests including Billie Eilish and the Jonas Brothers.

The invites for the event were sent out Wednesday via Instagram, featuring a picture of Krasinski from his high school prom.


"First of all... you're welcome," he said of the picture of his younger self. "Second of all, I can't take it anymore how much you are all missing your prom. So let's do something about it! Let's have an #SGNprom"

The online prom took place on Krasinksi's YouTube channel Some Good News, an outlet the "The Office" actor has used to share positive stories amid the coronavirus outbreak that has featured prominent guests such as his former costar Steve Carell.

During the live streamed event, Billie Eilish performed "Bad Guy" along with her brother Finneas O'Connell as Krasinksi danced along with a decked-out prom theme backdrop.

Later on, he featured the Jonas Brothers performing a TikTok-inspired dance and musical performance of their song "Sucker."


He also brought on several other guests throughout the event, including Chance The Rapper and "The Office" costar Rainn Wilson, according to USA Today.

Krasinski has used his platform throughout the pandemic to host various live events, including the gifting of "Hamilton" tickets for a 9-year-old girl's birthday earlier this month.

The recipient, from Florida, previously had tickets to see the acclaimed Broadway show in Jacksonville but was canceled due to concerns about COVID-19.

Krasinksi followed his Friday night virtual prom with an after-party performance by DJ D-Nice on Instagram Live.
