Gaga Adds Taylor Swift and Sam Smith to Her Benefit Show Lineup

Is the world ready for "One World: Together At Home"? Discuss.

Lady Gaga’s One World: Together At Home concert special just got even more exciting.

On Tuesday, the Chromatica queen revealed that she’d added two superstar singer-songwriters to the lineup: “You Need to Calm Down” legend Taylor Swift and nonbinary pop singer Sam Smith. The A-list artists—and other additions, including JLo and Oprah Winfrey—rounded out an already robust list of talent who have signed on for the televised show, which supports the World Health Organization (WHO) in the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

As NewNowNext previously reported, Gaga teamed up with the advocacy group Global Citizen to fundraise for COVID-19 relief efforts.

Her backing was a huge success: Gaga and her Little Monsters helped raise upwards of $35 million for health-care workers across the globe, and the artist announced the One World: Together At Home special as a celebration.

The benefit show will also feature appearances from Elton John, Lizzo, John Legend, Billie Eilish, Finneas O’Connell, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Billie Joe Armstrong, Eddie Vedder, Chris Martin, David Beckham, Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli, Burna Boy, J Balvin, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban, Kerry Washington, Lang Lang, Maluma, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Shah Rukh Khan, and Idris and Sabrina Elba. Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Stephen Colbert will host.

Tune into One World: Together At Home this Saturday, April 18, starting at 8pm EST. Fans in the U.S. can watch the show on CBS, NBC, or ABC.
