• Day three of the 2020 Democratic National Convention is scheduled to begin a 9 p.m. on Wednesday
  • Scheduled speakers include House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Kamala Harris, and former President Barack Obama
  • Billie Eilish and Jennifer Hudson are scheduled to perform during the convention's third day

Day three of the 2020 Democratic National Convention looks to be the most jam-packed of the four-day convention. In a program titled “A More Perfect Union,” Wednesday’s speakers will peer into the future and outline how a U.S. led by Joe Biden will get Americans past the current pandemic, address social injustice, and drive the country forward.

“America is not going back to where it was before Donald Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic and subsequent economic crisis, because for too many people, that wasn’t good enough,” a DNC press release said. “As he leads us out of crisis, Joe Biden will help build back better. He will have a historic partner in these efforts: the first female vice president."

Day three will start at 9 p.m. and feature eight speakers, along with musical performances by two of the music industry’s biggest names. As with the previous two days, it will be televised live on all major networks and online through their respective news websites. Day three will also be livestreamed on Facebook, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube.

The featured speakers and performers:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

The senior senator from Massachusetts looks to serve as another unifying voice encouraging progressives to support Biden. Warren is a former law professor at colleges including the University of Houston, Harvard University, and the University of Pennsylvania. She was one of the many Democratic candidates running in the 2020 primary to be the party’s nominee in the November elections. She was considered a frontrunner at the end of 2019, but ultimately withdrew from the race in March 2020.

Billie Eilish

The first musical performer of the night, Eilish will follow Warren to demonstrate her support for Biden and Harris. Eilish popped onto the music scene with her 2017 debut EP “Don't Smile at Me,” before her popularity exploded with her 2019 debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi

The longtime U.S. representative from California and current House speaker can also be described as “public enemy No. 1” in the eyes of President Donald Trump. Pelosi was first elected in 1987 and is currently serving her 19th term in the U.S. House of Representatives. It is also her second time serving as House speaker and she is the only woman to hold the position.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

The former Secretary of State, former U.S. senator for New York, former First Lady, and former presidential candidate is set to appear on Wednesday. Clinton served in the Obama administration alongside Biden from 2009 to 2013 before leaving the administration amid criticisms over the Benghazi attack and e-mail controversy. She has also been one of the most vocal critics of Trump going back to their tense and aggressive 2016 presidential campaigns.

Gov. Tony Evers

The Wisconsin governor is currently serving his first term and previously served as the state’s superintendent of public instruction. Evers has consistently found himself at odds with conservatives in the state courts and Legislature. The courts struck down his stay-at-home order in May 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham

Grisham is serving her first term as governor of New Mexico and was the first woman and Hispanic elected to the governor’s office in 2018. She previously served as the U.S. House of Representative from New Mexico’s 1st congressional district from 2013 and 2018.

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords

Giffords previously served as the U.S. representative from Arizona’s 8th congressional district from 2007 to 2012. However, she was forced to resign after an assassination attempt while she was in Tuscon, Arizona, in January 2011. Giffords was one of 15 people injured and 6 others killed by paranoid schizophrenic Jared Lee Loughner, who is currently serving a life sentence.

Jennifer Hudson

The singer, former “American Idol” contestant, and actress is the second scheduled musical performance for the night. Hudson is one of the most prolific and decorated performers today with multiple awards including an Oscar, BAFTA award, Golden Globe, and a Grammy.

Sen. Kamala Harris

Biden’s running-mate for the 2020 election, the U.S. senator for California will appear Wednesday to formally accept the nomination for vice president. She was also part of the packed 2020 Democratic primary field, but ended her own campaign by December of 2019.

Former President Barack Obama

The 44th president of the United States will close out Wednesday to repeat his support for his former vice president. Obama previously endorsed Biden in April 2020 and has remained in the public’s eye since then, typically seen either alongside Biden or criticizing Trump in response to the current president’s continued attacks against the former president.
