John Legend, Billie Eilish, BTS + More to Perform at James Corden's Special Quarantine Show
Artists will be streaming live from Los Angeles, South Korea, and more!
(SPOT.ph) Shows and concerts have been postponed or canceled due to COVID-19, but artists are still finding ways to reach out to fans and viewers. Several artists—like Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody and Ben&Ben—have gone online to serenade listeners. In an effort to entertain folks at home while they're in quarantine, comedian and host James Corden has invited artists like singer-songwriter John Legend, current Grammy awardee for Best New Artist Billie Eilish, and South Korean boy group BTS to perform at HomeFest: A Late Late Show Special which will air on CBS on March 31, 10 a.m. (Philippine time).
Because of the quarantine, all the artists and personalities set to appear on the special will be broadcasting from their own homes. Corden will be hosting the show from his garage and introducing performances from Finneas O' Connell of "Ocean Eyes" fame, Italian opera singer Andrea Bocelli, and British pop artist Dua Lipa. Magician and illusionist David Blaine and actor Will Ferrell will also appear for some added fun.
The new setup forgoes the show's usual format of a live audience, a live band, and celebrity guests answering Corden's interview questions from behind his desk. Producer Ben Winston says it hasn't been the easiest thing mounting a show that would broadcast from the London, Italy, South Korea, and Los Angeles, but he hopes that it can bring a good dose of cheer to anyone who needs it right now.
You can livestream HomeFest on the CBS website.
