Democratic National Convention 2020 Livestream: Watch Speeches From Kamala Harris & More

Tune in tonight at 9:00pm ET to watch the Democratic National Convention via our free livestream!

The Democratic National Convention went digital this year, and while the grandeur of the traditional, in-person event will be missed, it’s now easier than ever to watch at home. In fact, you don’t even have to leave HollywoodLife (or your couch) to tune in to all of the speeches and performances happening from August 17 to August 20. Just watch the live stream above, from 9:00pm ET to 11:00pm ET, to see politicians and celebrities make the case for electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in November.

If the first night of the convention was any indication, the programming is only going to get better as the week goes on. Viewers were treated to a presentation by actress and activist Eva Longoria, who will be replaced with a new celebrity emcee each day. Former First Lady Michelle Obama also gave an extraordinary speech about the necessity of voting in the 2020 presidential election.

Obama issued a dire warning to voters in her speech: “if you think things can’t get worse, they will” with four more years of Donald Trump as president. “If we have any hope of ending this chaos, we have got to vote for Joe [Biden] like our lives depend on it,” she said. “You simply cannot fake your way through this job. Being president doesn’t change who you are; it reveals who you are.”

It’s not just speeches during the DNC. A number of artists have come together to record gorgeous performances over the course of four nights. On August 18, John Legend will take the virtual stage. The following night, both Billie Eilish and Jennifer Hudson are set to perform. For alternatives to watching the DNC livestream, click HERE. And check out the full schedule below:
