Tonight at 8:30 pm E.T. the first Democratic Presidential debate for the 2016 elections will go down on CNN! Before you tune in to watch the blue candidates duke it out on stage, get the details on everything you need to know about how it’s all going down!

Hillary Will Snatch the Spotlight! 

Our favorite, I’ll do anything for attention including hitting the Nae Nae on live TV, Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will take the center stage podium on tonight’s debate.

Everything You Need to Know About Tonight's First 2016 Democratic Presidential Debate! - Jawbreaker

On her direct right will be the young at heart highest-polling candidate, Bernie Sanders.

To the direct left of her will be former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who deserves your attention not only because he is the front man for a Celtic rock band called O’Malley’s March, but also because in his two terms as governor of Maryland, he legalized same-sex marriage, passed new gun control laws, increased the minimum wage, repealed the death penalty, decriminalized small amounts of marijuana and provided in-state tuition for some undocumented immigrants. Well damn O’Malley!

Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee will flank the ends of the stage as the fourth and fifth-placing candidates respectively.

Meaning that if the curtains open and close, they’ll be the last seen and the first to go!

Bae is Moderating in Vegas!

Eternal silver haired bae Anderson Cooper, will be hosting this year, and it’s all happening in Vegas! Dana Bash and Juan Carlos Lopez will also ask a few questions, but we’re here for a 360 view of Cooper and possibly Sheryl Crow singing the National Anthem.

Facebook Has Taken Over! 

Forget the new reaction buttons, Facebook is connecting you directly to your politics!

CNN and Facebook will be hosting the debate. Facebook is even letting you submit your questions Facebook or Instagram. But there’s a catch! Notorious race baiter and flip flopper Don Lemon, will be asking your questions for you. Don’t be discouraged, fam. Let’s still ask questions!

Papa Biden Ain’t Coming! 

We’ve been wishing, hoping, and waiting for Vice President Joe Biden to join in the presidential election, but sadly he hasn’t made a decision about running. If he changes his mind at the last minute though, they’ll squeeze in a podium for him!  Here’s hoping for a surprise, last minute cameo by Uncle Joe!

It Comes in… 3D? 

You can watch the debate on TV, via livestream on your laptop, and in 3D!

CNN partnered with NextVR to offer what they’re calling “the first-ever livestream of a news event in virtual reality.” If you have the technology you can feel like you’re close enough to feel the material on Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit!

However you join in, make sure you watch and stay informed. Don’t forget to tweet #DemDebate, we want to hear you sound off, fam!
