Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief aired live and commercial free across many networks and platforms Wednesday night. The one-hour special, which was based in Los Angeles with stages in New York, Nashville, raised more than $44 million for those affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The star-studded telecast featured a slew of celebrities including appearances from Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, Cher, Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Billy Crystal, Kerry Washington, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Dwayne Johnson, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder and many more.

There were also musical performances from some of our favorite reality stars including The Voice coaches Blake Shelton and Usher who joined forces for a performance of “Stand By Me.” In Nashville, Demi Lovato, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and CeCeWinans performed the Beatles “A Little Help from My Friends” and American Idol’s Tori Kelly joined “Despacito” singer Luis Fonsi for a performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” 

Watch all three performances below.
