The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic makes people staying at home for quite a long time. With this, James Corden hosted an episode “Homefest: James Corden’s Late Late Show Special” on Monday, March 30, at 10 PM London time. The show was featuring many artists, such as Billie Eilish, Finneas, Andrea Bocelli, Dua Lipa, John Legend, Will Ferrell, David Blaine, and of course, BTS!
James realized that what happened today is tough. He admitted, “I’ve found it tougher than I ever thought I would. I found myself having these incredible spikes of anxiety and sadness when I allowed myself to think about my family back home in England, or my friends, or the people I love.” He also added, “It’s OK to feel anxious. The best thing we can all do is kind of breathe through that and put our minds in a positive place.”
