John Krasinski was joined by superstar Billie Eilish and The Jonas Brothers, who performed on his latest installment of his YouTube series Some Good News on Friday. 

‘Welcome to prom, class of 2020,’ he said, while introducing a teenage fan who is missing her prom due to the school closures. 

The tuxedo-clad actor, 40, kept his virtual program upbeat, as he joked about being an ‘elderly person’ and learning to navigate TikTok.

The star-studded virtual prom featured a number of surprise guests, including his former The Office co-star Rainn Wilson, who urged Krasinski to create an unforgettable evening. 

Later into the show, five-time Grammy winner Billie Eilish stepped in with her brother Finneas for a special performance, which had technical difficulties due to delayed internet speed.

‘You guys are the best. I absolutely adore you guys. I’ve been a big fan of you since forever,’ Krasinski told the duo after thanking them for coming. ‘The fact that you used The Office in a song blew my brain out, and I don’t think I fully recovered.’ 

Following her performance of Bad Guy, Krasinski joked she may have ‘hit an all-time career low’ by appearing on his show, which was created amid the coronavirus pandemic.

While serving as the evening’s DJ, the Quiet Place star also ushered in brothers Kevin, Nick and Jonas Jonas, who dressed up for their performance. 

Joe, who is expecting his first child with wife Sophie Turner, donned a white tuxedo and a black t-shirt, while Kevin kept it classic with a bow tie and Nick went all out with a glitzy blazer.

After singing Sucker, like Eilish, the hitmakers also admitted to never having gone to their high school proms.

Krasinski described the interaction as a ‘beautiful moment.’

 ‘First of all… you’re welcome. Second of all I can’t take it anymore how much you are all missing your prom. So let’s do something about it!’ he captioned a grainy photo of himself from high school. 

‘Yup, I’ll DJ with some friends on Friday 8 EST/5 PST! Stay tuned!’ he wrote on Thursday, before sharing a hilarious TikTok video encouraging his four million fans to tune in.
