Which version did their parents play for them? When it is the duo of Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello pulling up the inevitable “What a Wonderful World”… well, honestly, that could have either way, but they sounded great together, and paid off the suspense of which one is most likely to appear in a bolo tie. What the show did need a relative consistency of wasn’t HD quality or numbers of candles-per-piano — it was tone. (On her music stand, she had some kind of doodling instead of sheet music.) The special was intended to promote the practice of social distancing while staying together during the COVID-19 pandemic.[3][4][5][6][7]. The songs performed during the pre-show broadcast generated 6,000 in sales—up 75% from April 17, 2020. Boney M’s? And “Together at Home,” by design or happenstance, settled on a pretty solid one. One outlier on the silly end was co-host Jimmy Fallon joining the Roots for a cover of Men Without Hats’ “Safety Dance,” made palatable by how nurses and other medical pros, the official honorees of the show, became the dancing stars of the video. [43] Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert hosted the show, which was a syndicated broadcast that aired on April 18, 2020. He finished his number by letting the stereo tremolo circuitry warble for a few seconds while he did a little bit of jazz hands in the air — Paul McCartney, our international cheerleader to the end.

Breaking news alert: Some time between the first prime-time coronavirus relief special three weeks ago (“Fox Presents the iHeart Living Room Concert for America”) and Saturday night’s “One World: Together at Home,” Elton John has gotten himself to a piano. There’s a bit of an amateur element — or mandated mundanity — that’s suddenly making entertainment more fun as well as more real. Certain elements of that conjoined performance may remain a mystery, until they’re explained to us. “I miss you,” she murmured to the camera, sweetly, at the end. Why did Ronnie Wood’s licks appear to be live but Charlie Watts’ air-drumming not so much so? Just one problem: whatever smart device was being used barely registered her voice, as her brother’s cool-sounding Wurlitzer electric piano dominated the “track.” (You could even say that there ain’t so “Sunny” when her voice is gone.) (He got his own licks in, merging the song into his enduringly troubled “Love’s in Need of Love Today,”) Lizzo being the one to bring the familiar “A Change is Gonna Come” to fruition?

The One World: Together At Home special broadcast event united some of the biggest stars in music — including Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift — on Saturday night in support and celebration of essential workers and the World Health Organization (WHO). Congratulations - and thank you - to everyone involved.” [67], One World: Together at Home inspired Japanese rock band Luna Sea to design and host a similar event in Japan. The One World: Together At Home Concert is set to be a star-studded event with guests like Lady Gaga, Lizzo and Taylor Swift. When John Legend and Sam Smith sang a remote duet, there was no escaping the sight of Legend’s collective EGOT, in the shiny flesh, perched immediately over his shoulder. Not a problem. One was when Billie Joe Armstrong — looking more moptop than usual, a few weeks into the post-haircut era — sat on a futon and sang “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” a song about the death of his father that may be therapeutic for some of those who aren’t seeing a light at the end of the tunnel for themselves or their loved ones right now.

Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, said in a statement: "The One World: Together at Home special was an extraordinary response to an extraordinary situation. Eddie Vedder got a bit darker at his keyboard with “River Cross”; you could joke about how he needed that baseball cap brim to shield his eyes from all the candlelight, but his gravitas made for an appropriate intermission amid all the sunlit treescapes. Billie Eilish and Finneas might have had the best idea for an inspirational cover, at least in terms of putting a fresh spin on something that was a standard a few decades ago. They did. The most notable sellers from the two-hour television special were Taylor Swift's "Soon You'll Get Better", Maluma's "Carnaval" and Kacey Musgraves' "Rainbow", as they together accounted for 42% of the total song sales generated by the show. Kacey Musgraves’ “Rainbow” was the right song for the right moment, for obvious reasons — the rainbow being a staple of support for medical workers especially in windows in Europe right now — and her single-camera self-shoot was as simple and ideal as the show got. Instead of private individuals, funds were raised from corporations and institutions such as Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Rockefeller Foundation. As did the solemnity she inevitably struck on the other end of the two hours, joining up with Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli on their famous duet of “The Prayer” and turning it into a four-parter with John Legend (or five, counting accompanist Lang Lang). The special was also simulcast on networks owned by ViacomCBS (BET, BET Her, CMT, Comedy Central, Logo TV, MTV, MTV2, MTV Classic, MTV Live, Nick at Nite, Paramount Network, Pop, Tr3s, TV Land, and VH1),[49] NBCUniversal (Bravo, E!, MSNBC, NBCSN, Syfy, Universo and USA Network),[50] Walt Disney Television (Freeform and National Geographic),[50] Katz Broadcasting (Bounce TV and Laff),[51] Bloomberg Television, and on AXS TV.

[53] In Ireland, RTÉ (like the BBC) aired a unique version of One World: Together at Home fronted by comedienne and influencer Dorieann Garrihy and TV presenter Eoghan McDermott.[54]. Lady Gaga's jaunty "Smile," Taylor Swift's worried "Soon You'll Get Better" and the Stones' playful, practical "Can't Always Get What You Want" hit the right combination of notes. It provided a collective moment for the world to join together in the fight against the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. So politics were a long way from entering into any of it — although we are now at a sad and bizarre point where the nonpartisan act of supporting the World Health Organization, one of this show’s primary purposes, has suddenly been made into a political purpose itself. Lady Gaga's One World: Together at Home concert, organised with Global Citizen and the World Health Organisation, is taking place to celebrate the … The superstar on that earlier show that he’d been marooned without one when sheltering-in-place went into effect. But the show was willing to turn that smile upside-down on at least a couple of occasions. The other song to sort of/kind of dread hearing was “Let It Be.” Because surely that was the song Sir Paul McCartney was going to pull out, right?

As he sang “I’m Still Standing,” standing between him and a giant hedge was a large portable basketball hoop and a couple of balls. In the living room, or out in the grove? On April 18, 2020, the songs performed on the show sold more than 12,000 digital downloads—a gain of 735% versus April 17, 2020. (Also, let’s not read too much into anything, but we’re starting to get a strong feeling these two are dating.). One World: Together at Home spurred sales gains for the songs performed as part of the event. Smith, in what may have been accidental but came off as a hilarious case of rejoinder, had an Academy Award visible on a distant mantelpiece in the mirror, as if the Oscar were doing a “who, me?” photobomb.

In Canada, the special was watched by 3.13 million viewers on CTV and 1.33 million on Global. There must not have been time for the producers to recognize the audio problem and ask for a do-over, but it’d be nice if the siblings provided one in the form of a real studio recording. [66], Guinness World Records announced on May 22 that the global broadcast special set records for the most musical acts to perform at a remote music festival and the most money raised for charity by a remote music festival. Cher’s? George the Poet, Little Mix, Rag'n'Bone Man and Tom Jones only appeared in the UK broadcast.

In the end, did they sound splendid together? Pro cameras smuggled into the house and uploaded to a post-production FX house, or gutsy iPhone 5 grain? [69], One World: Impact is a six-episode digital series that shows how things have gone two months after One World: Together at Home.[70]. Or the casual irreverence that’s also getting folks through this — doled out Saturday night in occasional comic interludes from hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel or Fallon, who joked that, of the $50 million pledged by corporate sponsors before the show aired, “half of that was from holding Jeff Bezos upside down and shaking him for loose change”? But it was up to Swift — not usually thought of as a bracingly downbeat figure —who emerged as sober truth-teller at nearly the last minute, appearing alone, mirrored by her piano top, to perform a song she may be unlikely to sing under any other circumstance outside the studio, “Soon You’ll Get Better.” It’s the song she wrote about facing her mother’s recurring cancer, with verses so distraught they threaten to betray the deceptively optimist title as magical thinking. When we wake up with Billie Joe in the fall, will it be Swift’s wrenching ballad that we remember? And if it wasn’t clear why “Lady Madonna” needs to have the boogie-woogie stripped out of it, it was fun just as something different for Beatlemaniacs who are always welcoming surprises this late in the day. Apparently, and it worked just fine. But it was kind of delightful, regardless … even as it imparted the slightly unnerving message that what we want — the old normal — probably isn’t what we’re going to get. This too, was fine. There were 19 separate music performances in the two hours of “Together at Home,” and each of the 19 had a different producer, essentially: the artists themselves. The online portion of the event was hosted through YouTube by actress and presenter Jameela Jamil (first hour), actor Matthew McConaughey (second hour), actress Danai Gurira (third hour), singer Becky G (fourth hour), actress Laverne Cox (fifth hour) and actor Don Cheadle (sixth hour).

At the other extreme was Taylor Swift’s “Soon You’ll Get Better,” a cancer-themed ballad of sheer despair that the show needed as an 11:00 number, and as a reality check after so many assurances that everything will be all right, when we know that so many people won’t. Somehow, in their own way, the Rolling Stones split the difference, by performing “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” (They could have said, a la Bono, “Donald Trump stole this song, and we’re stealing it back,” but did not.) Produced for the BBC by Twofour, it featured additional performances from the acts featured in the main special along with exclusive performances from UK acts such as Little Mix and interviews with, and surprises for, front line workers.

The most notable sellers from the two-hour television special were Taylor Swift's "Soon You'll Get Better", Maluma's "Carnaval" and Kacey Musgraves' "Rainbow", as they together accounted for 42% of the total song sales generated by the show. She opened the show alone with Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile,” a song that can be played a little maudlin — but, yes, we all get the “though your heart is breaking” part, so she had fun with it as somebody swooped around her piano with a smartphone. (Divas who need diva-lovers: the luckiest people. It’d be nice to believe that, in the fine print of global lockdown orders, “getting a damn piano to Elton John” has belatedly been written in as an essential service. It's an honor to be able to officially recognize this unforgettable, 'I-Was-There' event as a record-breaker.

John’s piano was the most spit-shined instrument you’ve ever seen, but not everything about his appearance was polished to a fault. Vertical framing, or landscape mode? You might’ve hoped David Furnish and one of the boys were about to emerge and do some dribbling choreography to augment the upbeat tune, and that was not to be. The patron of the cause is Ursula von der Leyen (President of the European Commission). Lady Gaga gets so much praise that you kind of hate to dump any more on her, but besides whatever involvement she had in curating the show, her bookending appearances here were something else she got right. The accompanying music concert will take place on June 27, 2020, presented by Dwayne Johnson with performances by (amongst others), Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber. There was fieriness and purpose, anyway, in Beyoncé making a non-performing appearance to note that “black Americans disproportionately belong to these parts of the work force that don’t have the luxury of working from home,” and that “this virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate in America.” (Alicia Keys made much the same just-the-facts-ma’am point about racial disparities that may fall ultimately into the realm of either science or social science, or both.).
