Elton John Hosted The iHeart Radio Living Room Concert For America Last Night

March 30, 2020 / Posted by:

The iHeart Living Room Concert For America aired on Fox last night, and many famous yodelers sang from their houses, which are infinitely nicer than yours. But don’t worry, unlike Gal Gadot’s Concert For Attention Whores Who Need Attention, this concert benefited a good cause with proceeds from the sale of merchandise going to feeding the hungry and helping people fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Elton John hosted the series from one of his homes, a home that doesn’t have a piano in it. Oh man! How unfortunate that this person with multiple homes was at the the single home without a gigantic expensive piano! Oof! But Elton did pull out a keyboard, one which his sons use for lessons. He explained (via Billboard):

“I don’t normally play a keyboard like this.”

Yeah, we’re all making some tough sacrifices in these dark times, Elton. He also dedicated his music to “the incredible heroes” fighting coronavirus before singing Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me. Elton closed the show and teased some post-coronavirus touring, since he was supposed to start the North American part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour but had to postpone for obvious reasons. He said:

“When this is all over and done with, I’ll be out there playing for you again.”

Other performers included Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, Alicia Keys, Dave Grohl, Mariah Carey, Billie Joel ArmstrongSam Smith, and Tim McGraw, Lady Gaga, and the Backstreet Boys, who all performed separately:

Also, of course Mariah came ready with a wind machine:

100% of the proceeds from purchase of merch goes to Feeding America and the First Responders Children Foundation.

And can we talk about Ellen DeGeneres‘ backyard?

We’re all going on walks down the street with masks and latex gloves on, while Ellen can step out her backdoor and into the Amazon.

And the most surprising part of the concert was that Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello didn’t use their performance of her song My Oh My to exhaust us and grab attention by doing it in their underwear.

Good to see they left the full-blown attention-whoring on the backburner for now. Save it for café windows, award shows, and personal social media!
