On Sept. 16, Time revealed the stars who will deliver the program, headlined by Harry and Meghan, Trevor Noah, Sandra Oh, John Legend, and Kumail Nanjiani. Musical performers include Jennifer Hudson, Halsey, and the Weeknd.
The 2020 edition of the Time 100 will be the first ever to announce honourees on a TV special. In an exclusive promo video released by E!, the event previewed the type of "pioneers, artists, icons, and titans" who have previously received the coveted honour. Dwayne Johnson, Viola Davis, Roger Federer, and Jennifer Lopez appear in the clip, which also previews the 2020 TV event's celebrity presenters. The video shows Harry and Meghan, but only in a publicity photo.
