Now that much of the world is practicing social distancing, celebrities have had to get creative with how they get their content out there. And though the quarantine TikToks and at-home TV monologues have been entertaining, arguably the most successful virtual performer to date is Dua Lipa.
On Monday, March 30, James Corden hosted his very first at-home episode of “The Late Late Show.” For the music segment, the late night host invited Dua Lipa to do a virtual performance, and she absolutely crushed it.
From her flat in London, the pop sensation called “all [her] mates” and “put on a really special performance” of “Don’t Start Now.”
As you can see in the video above, that performance included not just Dua Lipa’s entire band, but also her backup dancers. (Somehow the dancers manage to stay perfectly in sync. Unreal.)
Naturally, people on Instagram were impressed by Dua Lipa’s video chat concert — even celebrities.
“So f***** rad,” fashion designer Jeremy Scott commented on Lipa’s video. “This was so cute I saw it last night!” Katy Perry said. Normani, meanwhile, was left speechless — all she could say was “wow.”
On March 27, Dua Lipa released her sophomore album, “Future Nostalgia,” a week early. Until quarantine is over, carefully coordinated virtual performances and Lipa’s killer LP will have to suffice.
