While you’ll have to check out the clip above to get a taste of what you can expect from this special, the tribute will feature a number of familiar artists taking on songs from the Beach Boys’ library.

Additionally, the special will include appearances by Drew Carey, Tom Hanks, Jimmy Jam, Elton John, Harvey Mason jr., Bruce Springsteen, and John Stamos.
