Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is helping celebrate America’s hardest working heroes — and he’s got a dream team of Hollywood heavyweights to help him do it.
With help from Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Keegan-Michael Key, Terry Crews and Rob Riggle, Johnson leads the music and comedy performance Rock the Troops, which was taped at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii with 40,000 servicemen and women, plus their families, in attendance.
In a preview of the upcoming special, Johnson paced the stage and asked the crowd to participate in taking the “biggest selfie the world has ever seen.”
“They protect our country so that we can have a country,” Matthew McConaughey later tells the audience,”and to that I say, ‘Alight, alright, alright.’ “

In another clip, the stars pay tribute to America’s armed forces.
Says actor Chris Pratt in a pre-tapped video, “From me, and your brother and sisters in uniform, we’re all proud of you.”
He also urges, “Now get home safe.”
Johnson adds to the men and women, “We’re so proud, we’re so honored, we are so privileged to bring you guys this show. We wanted to create something historic for you, and I think we’re gonna do it.”
“The best part about it is that we’re gonna do it all together,” he concludes.
Rock the Troops premieres on Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on Spike.
