John Krasinski is hosting a virtual prom tonight for seniors in quarantine

High school seniors are understandably upset that coronavirus has effectively canceled prom — but never fear, John Krasinski is to the rescue.

The Office star, who has recently made a turn as the host of the coronavirus counter-programming YouTube show Some Good News, announced this week that he will be holding a virtual prom on Friday. "First of all ... you're welcome," Krasinski said in the announcement, which included a delightfully dorky photo of himself in his own prom outfit. "Second of all, I can't take it anymore how much you are all missing your prom. So let's do something about it! Let's have an #SGNprom!"

Throw on your party attire and get ready to slow dance with your cat to "Forever Young," starting at 8 p.m. ET, below. Jeva Lange
