TikTok is saluting the class of 2020 with special livestream series #TikTokGraduation.

The series kicked off Thursday, with Brittany Xavier giving viewers a crash course on adulting.

Friday (May 15) at 8 p.m. ET, Alex Ojeda will present a do-it-yourself style guide to help students prepare for graduation night.

However, the big event is set for Saturday (May 16) at 8 p.m. ET.

TikTok teamed up with the Entertainment Industry Foundation, the LeBron James Family Foundation and XQ Institute on a livestreamed ceremony with special guests including Bad Bunny, Loren Gray, H.E.R., LeBron James, the Jonas Brothers, the Obamas, Ben Platt, Megan Rapinoe, Yara Shahidi, Lena Waithe, Pharrell Williams and Malala Yousafzai.

Once the ceremony ends, graduation parties hosted by Dillon Francis and other special guests will happen on the @GraduateTogether TikTok handle, and creators can receive a virtual diploma via the new TikTok Graduation creative effect.
