Bruce Springsteen has signed on to the Celebrating America TV special that will air on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and more next week. The long time Democratic supporter will be joined by John Legend and the Foo Fighters in performances of their own in the Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss-produced show.
With the already announced Tom Hanks hosting, Celebrating America will see Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington somewhat reprise their duties from last summer’s semi-virtual Democratic National Convention, which had the same producers. The Desperate Housewives and Scandal vets will introduce segments in the 2-hour special that starts at 8:30 PM ET on the 20th.
Biden and Harris are scheduled to give remarks of their own in Celebrating America.
The finale for the five-day America United themed event in a deeply and violently divided nation, Celebrating America has already made public that Justin Timberlake will be busting a move or two onstage.

Along with the TV networks, Celebrating America will be seen on Amazon Prime Video, Microsoft Bing, NewsNOW from Fox, and AT&T DIRECTV and U-verse as well as the PIC’s social media feeds
