Elton John this weekend will host the „Living Room Concert for America,” a benefit concert amid the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic featuring performances from Alicia Keys, the Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, Tim McGraw, and more.
The stars will all be performing "from their own homes, filmed with their personal cell phones, cameras and audio equipment, to ensure the health and safety of all involved." The concert will be aired without commercials on Fox, as well as iHeartMedia radio stations, this Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET. It will call on viewers to support Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation, as well as "pay tribute to the front line health professionals, first responders and local heroes who are putting their lives in harm's way to help their neighbors and fight the spread of the virus."
The benefit special will air in the timeslot originally scheduled for “iHeartRadio Music Awards,” which was postponed as a result of the growing pandemic. The Late Late Show host James Corden also set a special for next week filmed from his garage in which celebrities will join him from their homes, including Billie Eilish and John Legend.
