In honor of Red Nose Day, NBC arranged a special show for all our favorite celebrities to participate in. But in addition to having fun, they raised substantial amounts of money to change the lives of many children. On this 5th annual Red Nose Day in the US, NBC’s special edition hosted by Terry Crews united the biggest superstars from music, comedy, and entertainment. Apart from featuring performances from Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, and John Legend, Hollywood Game Night made its return. But to make it even better, Kelly Clarkson, Kenan Thompson, Kristen Bell, Jennifer Garner, Sean Hayes, Jeff Goldblum, Leslie Mann, and Thandie Newton competed in teams on it.

Following the two-hour special Red Nose Day on NBC, Hollywood Game Night made its return featuring Emmy-Award winning host Jane Lynch. The teams on the classic game show included Kelly Clarkson along with Jennifer Garner, Thandie Newton, and Jeff Goldblum. They were up against Sean Hayes, Kristen Bell, Leslie Mann and Kenan Thompson who competed as a team. Some classical games on Hollywood Game Night this year were “How Do You Doo-et?,” “Popped Quiz,” “Hold My Balls,” “Where Ya Goin’?”. We even to see a brand new game “Jane’s Pool Jamz.”
Apart from the Kristen Bell and Sean Hayes game fun, the special featured a fun video re-imagining of the classic Hall and Oates hit “You Make My Dreams” featuring talent including Julianne Hough, Rob Gronkowski and “This Is Us” star Chrissy Metz. SNL star Kate McKinnon and popular YouTuber Lilly Singh came together for the sketches. Apart from all this, viewers were shown films on how Red Nose Day changes the lives of many children in the US. To top it off, there was also a mini-sequel of the iconic Oscar-nominated film “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” titled “One Red Nose Day and a Wedding.”
The groups led by Lynch together helped raise over $150,000 in just one hour. But this donation comes just as an addition to the more than $1 million Mars Wrigley and the M&M’S brand are donating to the campaign. Both of these remain national partners for the 5th annual Red Nose Day.
Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning writer-director Richard Curtis created Red Nose Day. But for the fifth year in a row, NBC helped make a difference with its program!
