On Monday night, James Corden hosted, from his garage, a prime-time “Homefest” episode of The Late Late Show. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the show featured celebs and musicians from around the world; Corden said the show would help in “keeping people apart to bring them together.” Corden urged people to donate to the CDC Foundation and Feed the Children only if they could.
In Los Angeles, John Legend sang “Actions” and said the hardest part of quarantine was figuring out how to entertain the kids. Billie Eilish, also in L.A., showed her parents, brother Finneas and two puppies; her mom said to “pretend like it’s Christmas vacation” during quarantine.
