Everything you need to know about the 2016 State of the Union Address

Here is all the information you need to watch President Obama's last State of the Union address:

When is it?

The State of the Union will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 9 P.M. ET in the U.S. Capitol building. You can watch it live on all major networks and cable news channels and stream it on whitehouse.gov, as well as listen on NPR.

What will the President talk about?

In a recent preview, the President stated that that he will address "the big things" in "the years to come" in his final State of the Union. This probably means he will outline what he considers to be his greatest achievements and, more importantly, how his successor can build upon them.

What about a Republican response?

The Republican response will follow directly after the State of the Union by Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina. An ardent critic of President Obama and his broken policies, Haley will outline the Republican solutions that aim to fix President Obama's policy mistakes, including Obamacare, executive action on gun control, and the nuclear deal with Iran. 

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Miami will also deliver a Republican response in Spanish directly following the State of the Union. In a recent statement, Diaz Balart said "House Republicans are committed to putting our country back on a path to prosperity, creating solutions that will bolster the economy, cultivate job growth, and provide for a robust national defense."

What's going on in Florida?

Governor Rick Scott will also deliver his State of the State address tomorrow in Tallahassee to outline current and ongoing affairs in the Sunshine State.
