The cast of Schitt’s Creek gave a Class of 2020 graduation performance in character, by singing Mariah Carey’s “Hero” for all the teachers.


Global (10 June 2020) – If any of you are like us, you were heartbroken when Schitt’s Creek released their final season earlier this year. The cast became a much-loved family to all the team members here at Good Things Guy. The comedy show ran for five seasons and brought joy to the world at large!

We won’t give any spoilers about the show but if you haven’t watched it yet, go now! You can find it on Netflix.

The Rose family, living a life of high-end luxury, face a shocking downfall when they learn all their money is gone. They are forced to move to Schitt’s Creek, where they have to adapt to life as poor people. Their lessons and adventures through the seasons are comedy gold. The show was the idea of father-son duo Eugene and Daniel Levy.

Currently, in the United States of America, the school years are coming to an end. Usually, prestigious universities will invite well-spoken celebrities to give commencement speeches and encourage the class to go forth and conquer. 2020 has meant the speeches needed to be adapted to suit the current climate. Graduation ceremonies were cancelled but they adapted how students could move on to their next phase in life.

YouTube hosted the Class of 2020 graduation this year, making speeches and performances from celebrities and academics available to every graduate.

The cast of Schitt’s Creek was part of it, performing “Hero” by Mariah Carey in honour of all the brave teachers and professors who persevered through lockdown to make sure students got the very best education.

“Dear Class of 2020 is a virtual commencement celebration bringing together inspirational leaders and artists to celebrate graduates, their families, and their communities.”

The entire celebration is basically the Oscar’s for graduating university, and we loved it! If you would have graduated this year, this one is for you too!

You can watch the entire show (prepare for 4h30m) here or just watch the Schitt’s Creek performance below.
