This weekend's must-watch TV was an absolute no-brainer – and thankfully, the One World: Together at Home concert delivered as promised. Curated by Lady Gaga, it's best thought of as the spiritual successor to Live Aid, featuring a similarly jaw-dropping line-up of mega-stars all trying to raise money for a good cause – in the case of 2020, that being the WHO and coronavirus frontline workers around the globe.
Gaga dubbed the event "a love letter to the world@ and highlights included (minor spoiler alert?) Jennifer Hudson's breathtaking rendition of Hallelujah – a stunning cover of the classic Leonard Cohen song that's right up there with the Jeff Buckley version. Paul McCartney certainly looked like he was having fun, too, even if there was a hint of student union karaoke about his performance. Elton John, on the other hand, positively rolled back the years and was in vintage form.
Other major takeaways from the night? Celebrities have really nice houses to self-isolate in, you definitely don't want to play a drinking game involving the word 'unprecedented' any time soon, and Eddie Vedder's voice is one of the wonders of the modern world.
While it has now aired live in the US, you can still easily watch One World: Together at Home online if you missed it- and those in the UK have the official BBC broadcast to look forward to tonight. Below you'll find all the information you need to stream the One World: Together at Home concert for free wherever you are this weekend.
The event was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert – but they're almost an afterthought. As briefly hinted at, the One World: Together at Home line-up is beyond the wildest dreams of even the biggest festival promoters, boasting musical legends like Elton John, The Rolling Stones, and Stevie Wonder; celebrity royalty including The Beckhams, Oprah and Samuel L. Jackson; and three of biggest acts of 2020 in event curator Lady Gaga, Billie Ellish and Taylor Swift.
Beyond that, disgruntled 90s youths get their fix thanks to Eddie Vedder, Billie Joe Armstrong and Alanis Morissette. Even classical music fans get a treat courtesy of Andrea Bocelli and Lang Lang – while those after an even smoother groove can look forward to Alicia Keyes, Usher, and Jenifer Hudson.
And for those who like to keep things firmly PG, there's Chris Martin, Michael Buble and The Killers – because nothing screams 'lockdown' like a weekend singalong on Houseparty.
