BOSTON (CelebrityAccess) – On Monday (November 28), the Earthshot Prize announced its performer and presenter lineup for the second annual awards ceremony taking place at MGM Music Hall at Fenway in Boston on Friday (December 2). Podcaster and TV presenter Clara Amfo returns for the 2nd year to co-host alongside actor and director Daniel Dae Kim.

The five winners of The Earthshot Prize will be announced by a stellar lineup of presenters including Academy Award-winning actor Rami Malek, actor and comedian Catherine O’Hara, actor and social justice advocate Shailene Woodley, and of course, The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton. Each winner will be awarded nearly 1 million in prize funding to help support their winning innovations, with the potential to repair and restore our planet.

This year’s awards will feature unforgettable performances from Singer-Songwriter and activist Annie Lennox; Grammy award-winning Singer-Songwriter Billie Eilish, accompanied by her brother and creative partner, FINNEAS; R&B duo Chloe x Halle and platinum-selling artist and activist Ellie Goulding.
