  1. If this is filmed in NYC it’s a 10 hour difference so 8PM there is 6AM Sunday here on the east coast mainly , I’m not sure they’ll show it live and they’ll play it after MasterChef Sunday

  2. This sounds good. I quite enjoyed the performances at the bushfire concert so hopefully this will be as good but a little bit different (for obvious reasons). Currently enjoying a trial of Sling TV so will watch through there. Channel 10 will probably show it in 4 months time due to scheduling conflicts or Corona Virus specials or some other nonsense excuse and show it on Bold.

      1. Seriously, there is absolutely no reason why they wouldn’t show it live at 10am on the 19th and then again at say 7:30pm that night as an encore. Australian networks including Foxtel often find rediculous reasons to delay shows and then wonder why no one watches when they do show them. Nine at the moment it delaying doctor doctor for Corona specials after previously delaying it for scheduling reasons. Give me a break.

          1. Why get angry about it not being simulcast. Just no need – same day is good enough and with new content limited saving it for primetime makes sense.

            If it airing 9 hours or so later makes you “angry” just stay off social media for the day.
