After a thrilling week of speeches and rallies, the Democratic National Convention comes to a close on July 28 with an epic speech from Hillary Clinton — oh, and a performance by Katy Perry! So what time will these ladies be on stage? Find out when right here!
Hillary Clinton has already made history at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, becoming the first woman to be nominated for president of the United States from a major political party. The last thing on the 68-year-old nominee’s schedule for the DNC is a speech formally accepting her nomination and addressing the delegates, but not before superstar supporter Katy Perry gets the crowd riled up with a pro-Hillary performance! You can expect to see it all go down around 10 p.m. ET live from Philadelphia!
Although the DNC hasn’t announced an exact time for Hillary to take the stage for her speech, the convention will be finished around 11 p.m. ET. It’s also unclear how long Hillary will be speaking, but it’s anticipated that she’ll begin her address an hour before the convention wraps.
As for Katy, she’ll serve as the pre-intro introduction by performing on the very stage where Hillary will speak. She’ll likely be singing her song “Roar,” which is on Hillary’s official campaign Spotify playlist. Katy is seemingly raising money for the campaign during the performance, as she asked fans to text KATY PERRY to 47246 while she’s on stage.
Adding to the history-making excitement, Hillary’s daughter Chelsea Clinton will be introducing her after Katy performs. Talk about girl power! And the best part? You can watch everything as it happens with a live stream!
It’s been an awesome week for Democrats, with one incredible performance and empowering speech after the other. Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys have also performed in the party’s honor prior to Katy’s convention-closing show, and President Barack Obama delivered a passing-of-the-torch speech that moved everyone on July 27. Hillary made an appearance on the DNC stage after Obama’s address, but now it’s time for the nominee to take the stage herself — and we’re sure the Wells Fargo Center will be bursting with excitement!
