Gaga won five honors Sunday, most of them for her No. 1 hit with Ariana Grande, Rain on Me, which the pop stars performed live for the first time. The Weeknd, the first performer of the night, paid tribute to Jacob Blake and Breonna Taylor — two Black people who were shot by police officers — after winning video of the year and best R&B for Blinding Lights.
Saturday night’s One World: Together At Home Concert aired on most of the major networks, along with some cable nets and streamers, bringing together a who’s who of A-list stars and musicians under the curation of Lady Gaga. Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel opened the show, which wasn’t a fundraiser, but promoted themes of unity and positivity.
The pop star announced One World: Together At Home, a televised event featuring Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Billie Eilish aimed at fighting the coronavirus. It will air April 18 at 8 p.m. ET simultaneously on ABC, NBC, CBS, iHeartMedia and Bell Media networks.

The NFL and Pepsi announced Thursday that the pop star will take the stage Feb. 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston. The game will be broadcast by Fox.
