Don't leave home—we're bringing the stars to you!

HomeFest: James Corden's Late Late Show Special, which airs on Monday, March 30 at 10/9c on CBS and CBS All Access, is bringing people together to keep people apart. And, naturally, it's helping out some great causes along the way!

The show will feature James from his garage, chatting with some of the biggest names in music and entertainment, and will include musical performances by BTS in South Korea, Andrea Bocelli in Italy, Dua Lipa in London, and Billie Eilish with FINNEAS and John Legend in Los Angeles—all from the safety of their homes.

The special will also feature appearances from David Blaine, Will Ferrell, and many others.

James and the entertainers featured in this special will encourage viewers to follow the recommended guidelines from the CDC and government officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the strain on the medical community. Additionally, information will be provided on how viewers can donate money to The CDC Foundation* and Feed the Children**.

"Since The Late Late Show came off the air, we have been thinking of different ways to try and make a show at this time," said The Late Late Show Executive Producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe. "With the help of some wonderful guests, we are going to try to put on the best show we can, to entertain, raise awareness, raise money, and hopefully lift spirits. Shooting from James' garage may be far from perfect, but under the circumstances we hope it can help someone, somewhere, who needs some cheer right now."

Under normal, non-pandemic circumstances, James invites the audience to join in on the fun each weeknight on the Emmy Award-winning The Late Late Show with James Corden, which features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games, and sketches. The show regularly features viral segments such as "Carpool Karaoke," "Crosswalk: The Musical," "Drop the Mic" and "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts." The show holds the YouTube record for the most-watched late night clip with "Adele Carpool Karaoke," which has 214 million views.

*The CDC Foundation: The CDC Foundation, a nonprofit organization, helps serve all of the many needs that arise during an emergency response that the federally funded CDC cannot cover. Your dollars will help communities prevent, detect and respond to COVID-19, deploy emergency staffing with the skills required to meet the needs on the front lines at the state and local level, fund and deliver critical home essentials, such as food and medical needs to quarantined and isolated individuals, develop education and awareness campaigns to advance prevention and reduce stigma, and build capacity and infrastructure for global response efforts and other immediate needs as they evolve.

**Feed the Children: Struggling children and families need your help more than ever during this COVID-19 crisis. Each dollar donated will provide $7 worth of the food and essentials we are working tirelessly to get into the hands of the most vulnerable.
