Facebook is working to make things right with a special event in May called #Graduation2020: Facebook and Instagram Celebrate the Class of 2020. The live-streamed special will feature a commencement address by Oprah and appearances by Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Awkwafina, Jennifer Garner, and Simone Biles. Facebook plans to announce additional guests closer to the event.
Cyrus will be performing her hit song from Hannah Montana: The Movie, “The Climb,” with a powerful message about not giving up, during the stream. The celebrities and other guests involved will offer recognition to individual high schools and colleges throughout the U.S. on a state-by-state basis, with photos and videos of the class of 2020 as well as messages from principals and deans woven throughout.
The event will take place on Friday, May 15 at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT and will take place over the course of several hours. It will be streamed over Facebook Watch, with individual clips being posted to the official Instagram account and celebrities’ handles as well. It may be an unorthodox celebration this year, but it’s a happy time nevertheless!
Miley Cyrus performed an acoustic cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Wish You Were Here” as musical guest on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live at Home.
Sitting next to a fire pit that lent the performance a red glow, Cyrus and her socially distanced guitarist Andrew Watt (who previously revealed he tested positive to COVID-19) delivered a faithful rendition of the 1975 single, with Cyrus harmonizing along with the riff at the song’s end.
This isn’t Cyrus’ first time tackling a Pink Floyd classic live: In September 2019, at Las Vegas’ iHeartRadio Music Festival, the singer added the band’s “Comfortably Numb” (and Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”) to her set list.
The “Wish You Were Here” performance marks the second time SNL at Home has recruited an artist to play an acoustic cover of a topical classic rock song: Last episode, it was Coldplay’s Chris Martin covering Bob Dylan’s “Shelter From the Storm.”
