Although the 2020 NFL Draft will take place virtually this year because of the global pandemic, the event will not be held without music from some of your favorite big name artists.

The 2020 NFL Draft was originally scheduled to occur in Las Vegas, but as we all know, the ongoing coronavirus restricted and altered many plans of society, events, and businesses.

The show must go on.

For the first time in NFL history, this year’s draft will be held online. However, the NFL won’t allow the pandemic to stop viewers from being entertained. This week, the NFL announced that the draft will include musical performances from several musical artists.

Before presenting the first musical guest, the 2020 NFL Draft will be live streaming “DRAFT-A-THON LIVE“, a virtual fundraiser that will go towards COVID-19 relief efforts.

Kicking off the 3 day event will be powerful vocalist and Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson on Thursday night, at 8 p.m. ET on April 23rd.

Following Hudson will be none other than Kelly Clarkson who is scheduled to perform as part of the 2020 Draft Preshow on Friday, April 24th at 6 p.m. ET.

Clarkson tweeted in excitement that her performance day just so happened to be the date of her birthday.

Wrapping up the draft week on Saturday at 12 p.m. ET (April 25) will be performances by R&B singer H.E.R., OneRepublic, Luke Bryan, and Leslie Odom, Jr.

You don’t wanna miss any of these top performers, so be sure to catch all of them at the 2020 NFL Draft starting tonight, April 23rd at 8 p.m. ET on NFLN (NFL Network), ESPN, and ABC.
