Some of the world’s biggest pop stars – from Beyoncé to Ariana Grande – joined the cast of High School Musical for the Disney Family Singalong, which aired Thursday evening.

The hour-long special brought together beloved Disney classics and stars, which offered the world a brief breather from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and allowed folks to sip tea in bed and dance to Disney beats.

Broadcaster ABC threw the ultimate living room party with Disney Family Singalong, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, Billboard reported.

In a star-studded constellation of a cast, it featured Michael Bublé, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera and Zac Efron. The star did not sing with the rest of the High School Musical cast, however, due to “patchy” WiFi, Efron explained.

From our living rooms to yours, we take a break and come together to share in the joy of Disney and some of our favourite music at a time when we need it most,” Seacrest said as he introduced the show. 

The show was packed some incredible performances, such as bisexual teen star Auli’i Cravalho belting “How Far I’ll Go”.

To, well Beyoncé herself singing “When You Wish Upon a Star” for the Disney Family Singalong.

And Ariana Grande singing “I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)” from Hercules in full costume.

Darren Criss performed Jungle Book’s “I Wanna Be Like You” complete with playing every instrument and the monkeys. 

The cast of High School Musical finally reunited, sans Zac Efron, making the dreams of a thousand millennials finally come true.

OK, but is Disney Family Singalong available to watch in the UK?

The special aired in the US Thursday evening, but British fans across the pond might struggle to stream the show.

ABC is only available in the States and, at the time of writing, no known plans have been cemented to show it in the UK.

Nevertheless, the world may be a seething cesspit of chaos, but the UK does have Disney Plus, the mass media giant’s own bid into the streaming service world.
