The short clip began with Dua Lipa featured on the whole screen, but her team immediately joined her from the safety of their homes as she began singing.
The artist’s band consisted of two men on guitars and a woman on a keyboard. Dua Lipa’s vocals were also accompanied by two female backup singers. Meanwhile, six female dancers wearing leggings grooved to the upbeat tune throughout the three-minute performance.
Aside from Dua Lipa, other artists such as Billie Eilish, John Legend and the K-pop group BTS joined Corden’s Homefest special. The series of online performances hosted by the talk show host aims to raise money for charity amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the episode, Corden uploaded a short message for his viewers on his Twitter page yesterday. He explained that the broadcast was meant to “bring some joy and some music into your home at what is without a question one of the strangest and scariest moments in all our lives.”
