On Friday (April 17), John Krasinski deejayed his own virtual prom for high school seniors who are sadly missing out on the real thing due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. During last night’s fun-filled bash, Krasinski brought on a number of surprise guests to appear at the party, including stars like Chance the Rapper as well as Office co-star — and onscreen nemesis — Rainn Wilson. What’s more, Krasinski even enlisted the star power of the brothers trio and the rising pop songstress to perform for the 200,000-plus viewers watchin from home.
The Jonas Brothers, tailored in fancy prom-appropriate suits, jammed out a seamless acoustic performance of their number-one song “Sucker,” with Nick and Joe singing vocals as Kevin rocked out on the guitar. Soon after, Eilish was joined by her brother FINNEAS for a laid-back at-home rendition of “Bad Guy.”
It was a pretty exciting experience for all involved as neither Eilish nor the Jonas Brothers were able to attend their own prom.
(Prom starts at 9:28; Jonas Brothers perform at 12:38; Billie Eilish and FINNEAS perform at 15:37.)
Krasinski announced his virtual prom just a few days ago as a part of his YouTube series, Some Good News, in which the Quiet Place actor shares uplifting stories from around the world to spread positivity amid these difficult times.
Since launching the feel-good series, the 40-year-old has used the platform to do acts of good of his own.
Earlier this week, he surprised Boston healthcare workers with a special shoutout from Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz, who gifted medical staff lifetime tickets to their games. In another episode of the show, he surprised a Hamilton fan with a special sing-along from the original Broadway cast.
