The One World: Together At Home concert aired on RTE last night.
Curated by Lady Gaga in collaboration with the World Health Organisation and Global Citizen, the One World: Together At Home concert took place on Saturday night - broadcasting on Irish TV last night.
Featuring some of the biggest names in showbiz, the event saw some of the world's most well-known singers, actors and celebrities come together (virtually of course) to voice their support for frontline healthcare staff working tirelessly in the fight against Covid-19.
Hosted by US talk show hosts Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colvert, Doireann Garrihy and Eoghan McDermott took on hosting duties for the RTE version which saw over 100 artists perform from the comfort of their own homes - raising close to €120million in the process.
Little Mix impressed with their acoustic rendition of their song Touch, while Taylor Swift delivered an emotional performance of a new song called Soon You'll Get Better.
I need everyone to stop doing whatever they're doing and LISTEN to Little Mix performing Touch (acoustic) for #TogetherAtHome BBC event.

#TaylorSwift said she’ll never perform this song live because of the emotional toll it takes on her (it’s about her mom’s battle with cancer). But she did it for #TogetherAtHome. This one really hit close to home. We will all get better soon. 💪🏾 https://t.co/QyVNcK5Ax5
