5 Seconds of Summer, Sam Smith and More Set for NBC’s Red Nose Day Special, Mandy Moore to Host

Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley will co-host NBC’s Red Nose Day special to raise money and awareness for children in need.

The network’s sixth annual event, airing 9-11 p.m. EDT Thursday, will include musical performances, sketches and short films that illustrate how donations are used for children living in poverty in America and other countries.

Among the actors and musical artists taking part: Julia Roberts, John Legend, Bryan Cranston, Kelly Clarkson, Paul Rudd, OneRepublic, Steve Martin, 5 Seconds of Summer, Sarah Silverman, Ray Romano, Sam Smith and James Taylor.

Funds raised by this year’s Red Nose campaign will be directed to help combat the effect of COVID-19 on youngsters and the organizations that aid them.

In the pandemic, “some of the most vulnerable parts of our population are obviously going to be children,” Moore said. “The need has never been more critical to make sure that kids have health care and education and housing and food, all of the things that Red Nose Day and the campaign supports.”

Because of the crisis, the fundraiser’s Red Noses aren’t being sold in drugstores as is usual. Instead, they’re part of NosesOn.com, a website to make donations and get a “digital Red Nose” to share on social media, NBC said.

Red Nose Day has raised $200 million annually for programs including Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children’s Health Fund and Feeding America. The U.S. campaign, run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief, follows in the footsteps of the original British fundraiser founded in 1988.

The 8 Best Moments From ‘A Night of Covenant House Stars’

Jon Bon Jovi, Dolly Parton, Meryl Streep and more stars united over livestream on Monday (May 18) for “A Night Of Covenant House Stars,” a concert benefiting the Covenant House charity.

Actors like Streep and Diane Keaton read written letters from kids about their experiences with homelessness, while musicians and Broadway talent performed together (remotely). Hosted by Broadway veteran Audra McDonald and 60 Minutes anchor John Dickerson, “A Night Of Covenant House Stars” was part of the initial slate of programming for the new streaming service Broadway On Demand.

Covenant House provides “housing, food and healthcare to children and youth facing homelessness and the heroism of front-line staff working around the clock to keep them safe during the COVID-19 crisis.”

Below, Billboard has rounded up the eight best moments from the virtual event.


Broadway stars teamed up for a gorgeous cover of “Your Song”

Serving as the first big musical moment of the evening, Jeremy Jordan (who will also appear on the upcoming Smash reunion event, “Bombshell in Concert”), Bobby Conte Thornton and Laura Osnes gave a heartfelt performance of Elton John’s 1970 hit. 

Jon Bon Jovi offered a message of optimism

From his home studio, Jon Bon Jovi played an acoustic rendition of “Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night,” from Bon Jovi’s 1995 album Cross Road. Appropriately enough for the Monday night event, he sang, “I’m feeling like a Monday, but someday I’ll be Saturday night.”

Jordan Fisher brought Evan Hansen to our living rooms

Fisher, the fourth actor to play the title role in Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen, poured his heart and soul into a performance of “Waving Through a Window,” one of the most poignant songs in the musical. During his performance, Covenant House kids held up handmade signs about the help and support they’ve received.

Keala Settle was The Greatest Show(wo)man

Superstar songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul also appeared via video message to share their support for Covenant House and introduce Keala Settle, who sang “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman. Obviously, she nailed it.

Audra McDonald wished upon a star

Covenant House board member and Broadway icon Audra McDonald paused her hosting duties to treat viewers to a flawless cover of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” Just perfection.

Deborah Cox sang an anthem for those looking forward to a new life

Singer/songwriter Deborah Cox brought the house down with a rendition of “A New Life” from the 1990 musical Jekyll & Hyde.

Stephanie J. Block serenaded her 5-year-old

Broadway actor Stephanie J. Block sang “Not While I’m Around” from Sweeney Todd while holding her young daughter in her arms. That is all.

Dolly Parton encouraged us all to “Try”

There wasn’t a dry eye in the virtual house as the country superstar performed “Try,” a cut from her 2014 album Blue Smoke. “And try to make the most of every moment/ Cause if you never try you never win/ So try each day to try a little harder/ And if you fall, get up and try again,” Parton sang while playing acoustic guitar.


Watch CammWess Perform Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ Ahead of ‘The Voice’ Finale

The Voice finale is this week, and the remaining contestants aren’t messing around.

CammWess kicked off the show with a stirring rendition of Prince’s iconic “Purple Rain.” It’s hard to believe the delivery was done remotely, as CammWess performed on a patio that looked like a full-blown arena stage with purple lights and haze. The hopeful star topped it off with a Prince-inspired satin purple jacket.

“I want to party at your house with the fog machine and purple haze, that felt nice,” his former coach Kelly Clarkson said of the scenery, as she swayed to the performance with a glass of red wine in hand.”CammWess, you know I love you, man. I’m like, it was so hard to not pick you in that one moment because you’re so, so gifted.”

“But the thing is, that’s going to happen in your career. People are going to doubt you, and the cool thing is, you have so much confidence,” she continued. “Look what you got yourself, and that’s what’s going to make you succeed in this industry is the confidence within yourself. You’re so gifted.”

CammWess’ excellence was no surprise to his coach John Legend, who “knew Camm wouldn’t let me down. He keeps delivering, week after week, and he’s such a soulful, gifted singer, but he comes with so much passion as well, so much artistry.”

“When the Prince estate reached out to me and said, ‘Will you vouch for this guy?’ I felt very, very comfortable vouching for CammWess and you see why,” the “All of Me” singer concluded. “He did such a beautiful job with that song and has done such a beautiful job throughout this season.”

Disney’s Kevin Mayer to Become TikTok CEO

Kevin Mayer, the Disney executive who oversaw the launch of the streaming service Disney+, is leaving his post at the entertainment giant to become CEO of the fast-growing social media app TikTok.

Disney veteran Rebecca Campbell will succeed him as chairman of director-to-consumer and international.

“I am very proud of what our extraordinarily talented direct-to-consumer and international team has accomplished in creating and delivering a world-class portfolio of streaming services, particularly Disney+,” Mayer said Monday in a statement.

Mayer joins TikTok at a pivotal moment for the app, which is owned by Chinese conglomerate ByteDance. Less than three years old, it has been on a quick ascent that has been aided by the coronavirus pandemic. In March, the app surpassed 2 billion worldwide downloads, according to third-party measurement firm Sensor Tower. Mayer also will serve as COO of ByteDance.

Mayer, who will report to ByteDance founder and CEO Yiming Zhang, also will face the tough task of easing concerns about TikTok. U.S. regulators are looking into whether the app is a national security risk. In early March, it also was hit with new complaints about its collection of children’s data.

“Kevin’s wealth of experience building successful global businesses makes him an outstanding fit for our mission of inspiring creativity for users globally,” Yiming said in a statement. “As one of the world’s most accomplished entertainment executives, Kevin is incredibly well placed to take ByteDance’s portfolio of products to the next level. I look forward to working very closely with Kevin on our global development and the next chapter of the ByteDance story.”

Mayer’s departure from Disney comes three months after he was passed over as successor to longtime CEO Bob Iger, a role that instead was handed to Bob Chapek, who was chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. Mayer was seen as a likely contender for the role given his long tenure at Disney, where he served as chief strategy officer, architecting such deals as its $71 billion acquisition of the Fox assets. He was upped to an operational role leading streaming for Disney in 2018 and oversaw the launches of ESPN+ and high-priority direct-to-consumer producer Disney+. Under his leadership, Disney+ has become an immediate success, garnering nearly 55 million subscribers in its first six months. His contract with Disney ran through the end of 2022.

“Kevin has had an extraordinary impact on our company over the years, most recently as head of our direct-to-consumer business,” Chapek said in a statement. “He has done a masterful job of overseeing and growing our portfolio of streaming services while bringing together the creative and technological assets required to launch the hugely successful Disney+ globally. Having worked alongside Kevin for many years on the senior management team, I am enormously grateful to him for his support and friendship and wish him tremendous success going forward.”

Campbell, the new chairman overseeing Disney+, is a 23-year veteran of the company who most recently was president of Disneyland Resort, where she oversaw Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. She also has served as president of Disney in Europe, Middle East and Africa and as president of ABC Owned Television Stations. The news of her appointment was made at the same time that Disney announced Josh D’Amaro as the new chairman overseeing Disney’s Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products group.

Though he has spent much of his career at Disney, Mayer does have some outside experience to bring to TikTok. He had brief stints as the CEO of Playboy.com and Clear Channel Interactive during the early 2000s.

Said Mayer, “It’s truly been a privilege for me to be part of the iconic Walt Disney Co., and I am enormously grateful to Bob Iger for his trust and confidence and to Bob Chapek and his senior management team for their collaboration and support over the years.”

Why High-Profile Hacks Could Increase Amid Pandemic-Prompted Remote Work

Hackers are threatening to release a treasure trove of private data stolen from one of Hollywood’s top talent law firms if it doesn’t pay a $42 million ransom — and experts say companies are increasingly vulnerable to attacks like this because their employees are working remotely during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks earlier this month was hit by a ransomware attack — with a group called REvil taking responsibility for the hack and posting online part of a Live Nation employment contract for Madonna’s recent world tour as proof that they stole 756 gigabytes of data. On Thursday, the group released documents pertaining to Lady Gaga in retaliation for the firm’s refusal to pay the initial $21 million ransom. It says from now on it will auction off one person’s file each week, beginning with Madonna’s on May 25. (The group is also threatening to release harmful information related to President Donald Trump, but he’s never been a client of Grubman Shire.)

The firm, which also reps the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Usher and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, said in a Monday statement to The Hollywood Reporter that it’s working closely with law enforcement and its clients have been overwhelmingly supportive.

“The leaking of our clients’ documents is a despicable and illegal attack by these foreign cyberterrorists who make their living attempting to extort high-profile U.S. companies, government entities, entertainers, politicians and others,” a spokesman for the firm said. “We have been informed by the experts and the FBI that negotiating with or paying ransom to terrorists is a violation of federal criminal law. Even when enormous ransoms have been paid, the criminals often leak the documents anyway.”

Since the novel coronavirus pandemic began shutting down physical offices across the country in mid-March, countless employees have been working from home. The mix of societal distraction, stress and blurred lines between personal and company equipment is a recipe for cybersecurity disaster.

“Ransomware is often spread through phishing emails, macros embedded in attachments or by visiting ‘infected’ websites,” says one data privacy and security expert for a multinational law firm. “Employees may be on heightened alert for suspicious emails or be blocked from certain websites when they are in their office, but they may have their guard down or may not be limited by the in-office security controls when they are working from home or on their own devices.”

Robert Kang, an adjunct professor of cyber-risk management at Loyola Law School, expects that demand for cyber professionals will skyrocket with many companies turning to in-house cyber lawyers, something he says is long overdue. “Malicious actors are exploiting the confusion caused by the pandemic to engage in cybercrime,” says Kang. “The increased volume of remote workers is stress-testing many companies’ cyber defenses like never before.”

He likened an in-office operation with solid cybersecurity to a castle surrounded by impenetrable walls. “Each remote worker is like building an outpost away from the castle — but with a tunnel to it,” says Kang. “In other words, increasing the number of remote workers increases the number of targets that a malicious actor can attack. That’s why guarding each outpost is so crucial.”

A simple, common error could cause big cracks in a company’s armor: delaying the installation of operating system updates. “They could have critical security updates they’ve never done that allows a hacker to come in,” says Hemanshu Nigam, a former chief security officer of News Corp. who advises Hollywood talent, professional athletes and companies on cybersecurity. “Once a hacker is in your laptop they follow you right into the company even if you’re using a secure VPN.”

Nigam says hackers are aware there’s a high demand for information on the spread of coronavirus and they’re customizing their phishing emails to focus on that content. “There’s an obsession with getting constantly updated on the pandemic,” he says. “It’s always in the back of all of our minds even if we’re focused on our work.”

He recommends hiring white-hat hackers to do penetration testing and find areas of vulnerability within the company. “We’re actually doing this for a major white-label company right now, asking their employees to click on links related to COVID-19,” he says. “Then we’re going to train employees on all the clues we buried into the phishing email that people should have noticed and known it was fake.”

Hackers are looking for “efficiency, speed and easy access,” says Nigam, who also worked as a federal prosecutor specializing in computer crimes. “It’s no different from guys who break into cars. They’ll walk from car to car, lifting door handles.”

While Kang says the “best line of defense is hiring a dedicated security team,” he and the other experts agree there are a few key steps companies can take to avoid becoming an easy target: require employees to install updates or remove their administrative access and do it for them; use a virtual private network (VPN); train employees on phishing emails; make sure everyone is using a secure Wi-Fi connection with a strong password; use a content management system that allows extra layers of security for sensitive documents; make sure essential documents are backed up so they can be more easily restored if the company is hacked; and require two-factor authentication to access company systems whenever possible.

The last one, two-factor authentication, requires having not only a password but also physical access to a device that receives a one-time-use code. “A hacker isn’t going to be holding your phone,” says Nigam. “It may take an extra 10 to 15 seconds, but that 10 to 15 seconds can save the company millions of dollars in costs of recovery and reputational damage.”

For individuals who may be impacted by a hack during the crisis, they advise taking steps to monitor and freeze credit and signing up for a service like LifeLock that scans the dark web for your information proactively. Especially in Hollywood, it’s important to remember the rich and famous are extremely valuable marks.

“If you are in that category, you should be ultra-aware you’re a target,” says Nigam. “When hackers see news that one major talent law firm got hacked, you get a lot of copycat hackers waking up and saying, ‘Let’s try that.’ It proves to the hacking community that there’s gold at the end of that attack.”

Here’s the full statement from Grubman Shire’s spokesperson:

“Our elections, our government and our personal information are under escalating attacks by foreign cybercriminals. Law firms are not immune from this malicious activity. Despite our substantial investment in state-of-the-art technology security, foreign cyberterrorists have hacked into our network and are demanding $42 million as ransom. We are working directly with federal law enforcement and continue to work around the clock with the world’s leading experts to address this situation.

The leaking of our clients’ documents is a despicable and illegal attack by these foreign cyberterrorists who make their living attempting to extort high-profile U.S. companies, government entities, entertainers, politicians, and others. Previously, the United States Department of Defense, HBO, Goldman Sachs, as well as numerous state and local governments been victims of similar cybercriminal attacks.

We have been informed by the experts and the FBI that negotiating with or paying ransom to terrorists is a violation of federal criminal law. Even when enormous ransoms have been paid, the criminals often leak the documents anyway.

We are grateful to our clients for their overwhelming support and for recognizing that nobody is safe from cyberterrorism today. We continue to represent our clients with the utmost professionalism worthy of their elite stature, exercising the quality, integrity and excellence that have made us the number-one entertainment and media law firm in the world.”

Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber Speak Out After ‘Stuck With U’ Hits No. 1

Following the announcement that Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s collab “Stuck With U” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Grande her third Hot 100 topper and Bieber his sixth, Grande wrote a lengthy Instagram note addressed to fans and even some skeptics about the success of the charitable single, which will benefit the First Responders Children’s Foundation.

“Thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much,” Grande wrote Monday (May 18) afternoon. “There’s so much to celebrate today. However, i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren’t the driving force in anything i do. i’m grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn’t have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn’t upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise i couldn’t ask for another f–king thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don’t usually do (i don’t give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)…my fans bought the song. JUSTIN’S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherf–kers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they’re some of the greatest people i know. sales count for more than streams. u cannot discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason…..), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you’re even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it’s a blessed position to be in. i’ve had a lot of “almost number ones” in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL …. and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. love u all a lot.”

Bieber also commented on “Stuck With U” going No. 1, denying speculation on social media that improprieties aided the song’s chart debut. He went a step further, pointing out that if anyone had an issue, they shouldn’t go solely after Grande: “This is my song with Ariana Grande and I’m honored to work with her to help raise money for a good cause. If you gonna say her name make sure you say mine because it’s our song.”

“Stuck With U” also starts at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 108,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 14, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The song was on sale in a variety of physical/digital combination offerings during the tracking week, including copies autographed by Grande and Bieber. Consumers could purchase cassette, CD and vinyl singles, each with a digital download; the download would be sent to consumers upon purchase, with physical versions due to arrive at a later date.

“Stuck With U” is the first of a musical compilation benefitting charitable organizations from the duo’s manager Scooter Braun’s SB Projects that will be released over the course of the year. Following news that the song topped the Hot 100, Braun took to Instagram to congratulate both artists and hail healthcare workers during the pandemic. “Thank you to all the first responders and their families. Let’s keep raising money for them as they sacrifice for us. Nuff said,” Braun wrote.

How Billboard Came to Its Calculations in This Week’s Race For the Hot 100 No. 1

Pop fans anxiously awaited the announcement of this week’s No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 today (May 18), with new singles from rapper 6ix9ine (“Gooba”) and the pop star duo of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber (“Stuck With U”) likely to be in contention for the chart’s top spot.

Ultimately, Billboard announced that “Stuck With U” had debuted atop this week’s listing, with “Gooba” landing two spots below at No. 3 in its first week. (“Say So,” last week’s No. 1 from Doja Cat featuring Nicki Minaj, finished between them at No. 2.)

This was met with some controversy on social media, as 6ix9ine had taken to Instagram shortly before the chart’s reveal to assert that streams of his single had been improperly discounted, and allege that the powers behind “Stuck With U” had “bought” their No. 1 through ill-gotten sales totals. (Grande, Bieber, and manager/”Stuck” co-writer Scooter Braun all later took to Instagram to deny the rapper’s claims.)

In the interest of transparency, Billboard wanted to clear up the Hot 100’s chart rules and tabulation process, the calculations that go into the determinations of its final rankings, and the stats accumulated by the two singles that marked this week’s highest debuts. Here are the facts.

The total stream count for “Gooba”: 55.3 million combined audio and video U.S. streams for “Gooba” were reported to Nielsen Music/MRC Data and Billboard for this week’s Hot 100.

6ix9ine’s claims that not all of his streams were properly counted: Streaming numbers visible to the public on audio and video data platforms do not reflect the volume included in Billboard’s chart calculations. Neither do the stream counts that services make available to content owners (including 6ix9ine and his team) directly through a proprietary data feed or dashboard.

Instead, each data provider provides a post-audit number to Billboard and Nielsen Music/MRC Data — excluding streams that do not meet long-standing charting parameters, such as U.S.-based-only plays, minimum play length, excessive plays and lack of user verification. This is applied to all songs from all artists. (Billboard has reached out to YouTube for further comment about their play statistics for “Gooba.”)

The 30 million streams that 6ix9ine said Billboard counted matches the included chart total for all video plays. That number is more than double any single-week video stream total for any song so far this year.

The discrepancy between YouTube’s visible play count for “Gooba” (over 180 million) and the number of streams Billboard counted for the song this week (55.3 million): Counts for a video on its YouTube page are for global plays, and absent any other auditing filters mentioned above. Billboard counts only U.S.-based plays for its charts.

The Hot 100 forecast 6ix9ine referenced in his Instagram video: The chart forecast referenced was not created nor provided by Billboard to the industry. Those with access to sales, streaming and radio data from various sources often create their own chart models and update them at their own frequency. Billboard does not distribute any Hot 100 ranking forecast to labels, management or artists.

The late 24-hour sales spike for “Stuck With U” alleged by 6ix9ine in the video: “Stuck With U” was available to purchase through the week as a digital download, as well as in various physical format/digital download combinations through Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s webstores. The sales spike is likely referring to sales on Thursday, May 14 — the final day of the tracking week — when signed “Stuck With U” singles were put up for sale in Grande and Bieber’s webstores.

A signed single or album is an accepted form of sales available to any artist and has been noted repeatedly within Billboard chart stories when such items have impacted the Hot 100. 6ix9ine, meanwhile, released a non-signed CD single/digital download on the last day of the tracking week via his webstore.

As noted in this week’s story announcing the results on the latest Hot 100, “Stuck With U” sold 108,000 in the tracking week ending May 14 and “Gooba” sold 24,000, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

6ix9ine’s claims that “six credit cards” were responsible for a hefty percentage of the “Stuck With U” sales: Billboard and Nielsen Music/MRC Data conducts audits on all sales reported with access to purchase-level detail, and works with data partners to recognize excessive bulk purchases and remove those units from the final sales total. All titles this week, as in every week, were put under the same scrutiny. (Billboard has reached out to Fame House/Bravado, retailer and reporter of director-to-consumer sales, for further comment about the sales data provided for “Stuck With U.”)

6ix9ine’s claims that Billboard would not “disclose” information about data when askedBillboard and Nielsen Music/MRC Data were open and forthright with all information pertaining to “Gooba” with 6ix9ine’s team. That includes explaining the Hot 100 methodology and how the final ranking and chart points for “Gooba” were calculated. Billboard and Nielsen Music/MRC Data cannot, however, provide granular detail on a title to anyone but its content owner.

How the Hot 100’s multi-metric calculations are tabulated, and how it led to this week’s results: The Hot 100 has a locked-in methodology, updated at least once a year, with each metric divided by a certain number, which results in an average chart ratio whereby streams are the most heavily weighted factor, followed next by radio airplay and then sales. Each song has its own ratio breakdown based on its specific activity, which contributes to the overall chart average each week .

Overall, “Stuck With U” drew 28.1 million U.S. streams, 26.3 million in radio airplay audience and 108,000 sold in the tracking week. “Gooba” had 55.3 million U.S. streams, 172,000 in radio airplay audience and 24,000 sold.

Those sums resulted in the songs’ respective rankings on this week’s Hot 100.
