Dua Lipa was among the big names that joined hands to help American students celebrate their graduation amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Dua Lipa, 24 was part of an all-star cast of celebrities taking part in the 'Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020' special on Saturday.
The one hour concert was organised to help US students honour their graduation after celebrations across America were cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
Donning a colourful top and crisp white jeans, Dua Lipa belted out her new single Break My Heart while video of students dancing was incorporated into the performance.
Barack Obama gave students an inspiring talk as part of the A List filled concert – taking a swipe at the current Trump administration in the process.
TMZ reports the former President took aim at the current President without bluntly naming him: “Barack recommended the grads do what they think is right, and not do what they think is easy or convenient.
“He said that's how a child thinks – and in some cases, how certain people in power think too,” they report.
Meanwhile a host of A List celebrities were also part of the concert to perform and offer nuggets of advice.
The Jonas Brothers performed their new single X, while actress Zendaya gave the students some advice for the future.
"Thankfully, being a senior is so much more than just your senior year,” she said. "It is every moment from the day you were born up until right now. The tiny moments, the big ones… they all add up to the class of 2020," she added.
Chart superstar Pharrell Williams gave an inspirational address, saying: “A great speech, like a great song comes from the heart."
"It's only when the words flow from authentic emotions that it can actually really resonate with the many, versus the few.”
Grammy winning artist Alicia Keys also featured on the show to sing her ballad Underdog.
While Pitch Perfect star Ben Platt and his brothers Henry and Jonah performed a medley of tunes including Graduation (Friends Forever) by Vitamin C and Forever Young by Bob Dylan.
While ex-President Obama told students: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of you in the graduating class of 2020 as well as the teachers and the coaches, and most of all the parents and families, who guided you along the way."
