Last Wednesday, CBS announced plans to release the “Homefest: James Corden’s Late Late Show Special” with host James Corden on March 30, Variety reports.

The special will feature Corden in his garage talking to his guest stars in their homes around the world, USA Today reports.

The show is set to air tonight at 8 p.m. MT, and will feature Billie Eilish, BTS, Will Ferrell, John Legend and even more well-known celebrities, Corden announced in a tweet.

“Late Late Show” executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe told Deadline: “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. 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.”

The “Late Late Show” said on Twitter it hopes the special will be “bringing people together to keep them apart.”

In addition to bringing people together, tonight’s special will be focused on encouraging viewers to follow CDC guidelines as well as government regulations in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19, the Hill reports. The special also aims to raise money for the CDC Foundation and Feed the Children.
