Kevin Durant, Bill and Melinda Gates, Misty Copeland, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Russell Wilson, Ciara, and the casts of HBO's Euphoria and the CW's Riverdale were among the other newly announced participants for the June 6 event, which will feature inspiring videos from the class of 2020 and musical performances by the likes of BTS, Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, and Camila Cabello. Barack and Michelle Obama will each deliver commencement addresses.
