TikTok Sets Prom Week to Help High-Schoolers Who Are Missing Out

Diplo will host a live DJ set Saturday, April 25


High-school proms across the country are being scuttled by the coronavirus pandemic, and TikTok is trying to make up for the loss with Prom Week next week.

The weeklong event, daily at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET starting Tuesday (April 21), will feature in-application hashtag challenged and livestream events with creators, celebrities and surprise live musical performances.

TikTok is also rolling out two creative effects to help viewers get in the prom spirit. Actor John Krasinki demonstrated the Prom Portrait background here.
