The world’s staying home right now, and that includes the people who sing, dance, and stand on X’s and convincingly recite words they were told.

But some in entertainment are still trying to bring us the goods, via music, humor, a productive message, or just some element of being interesting.

Here’s a rundown of a few offerings making their way across the pandemic’d net.

Some in showbiz are encouraging everyone to isolate, like the great, seemingly-normal Kevin Bacon. He’s participating in the #IStayHomeFor campaign, supporting domestic quarantine for those we love. Kevin’s person to protect: his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick.

#IStayHomeFor @kikkosedg! Hey everybody, it’s now so important to stay home and keep our distance from others if you are able. It’s one way we can help prevent the spread of #Coronavirus and save lives. The more of us who can, make it safer for those who can’t. So if you’re home too like me, post a video or photo with a sign like mine, telling who you are staying home for and ask 6 friends to do the same. Post it with the hashtag #IStayHomeFor so I can see and share. The more folks involved, the merrier – We’re all connected by various degrees (Trust me, I know!) I’m kicking it off with @jimmyfallon @eltonjohn @Brandicarlile @kevinhart4real @ddlovato @davidbeckham – but I encourage YOU ALL to join in too! Let’s use this 6 Degree thing to do some good! . . . . #Corona #Coronavirus #StayHome #StaySafe #6Degrees #ThinkingOfYou #SpreadTheWord

A post shared by Kevin Bacon (@kevinbacon) on

Saved by the Bell star Mario Lopez — backed up by Mark Wahlberg — wants people to stay fit while they’re stuck inside:

And if that doesn’t do it for ya, you can just watch Slater and the fam dance:

Comedic icon Steve Martin’s helping out, courtesy of a fantastic banjo performance in the woods. I love this guy:

One tweeter liked it so much, she decided to accompany the wild and crazy guy with her fiddle:

 

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher took to his kitchen sink to sing a song about washing your hands:

The incomparable Terry Crews did the same, and I gotta say, his wins by a mile:

Speaking of cleaning your claws, I don’t think you can get any better than Neil Diamond’s new song:

Jimmy Fallon and his daughters got in on the hand-washing act, too:

Singer Lizzo took to the webisphere with a strange half-hour combination of flute and mantra, including the observation that “the earth is not happy. … The earth is vibrating lower than it should be.” She wants to fix that: “Now I want you to imagine that you’re taking that fear off of the earth. Like a quick-change. It’s a wig.”

It hit one user right where they live:

“That was so beautiful and exactly what I needed! Thank you.”

British singer-songwriter (and GLOW actress) Kate Nash blew it, too — in her case, “Enter Sandman.” On the recorder:

Speaking of the UK, singer Robbie Williams thought everybody might like a cover of “Uptown Funk.” Ever wonder what a 77-million-albums-selling singer sounds like when he’s just in a room dishin’ it out?

Actor Sam Neill thought pandemic peeps want poems:

More on that “dishin'” thing, “Boom Clap” music star Charli XCX was beltin’ it out at home while she took care of business:

Some took time to share their passion projects. Singer Joe Jonas and his wife — Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner — served up a Lego Harry Potter village.

And it’s very, very creepy:

LeBron James just cut a rug:

So did UK singer Perrie Edwards and her soccer star boyfriend, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain:

Madonna gifted the world an alternate version of “Vogue.”

Again, ever wonder how music’s biggest stars sound when they’re just singing in a room like you do? Listen and learn:

As we round the last corner here, country singer Brad Paisley performed in concert from his house, and he even managed to finagle socially-distanced duets with stars Carrie Underwood and Tim McGraw:

And I’ve saved the best for last. The wonderful Keith Urban treated us to songs from his studio, and the country crooner — accompanied by wife Nicole Kidman — paid a moving tribute to the late Kenny Rogers (as well as to legendary songwriter Don Schlitz):

So there’s a wrap-up for ya on this isolated Sunday. What are your impressions?

I did keep one small bonus in my hip pocket. Props to terrific actress Michelle Pfeiffer, who used a simple photo to thank society’s real VIPs — doctors and nurses. They bravely do their jobs so that we may be well.

Michelle made her own T-shirt as a show of support. Way to go, Catwoman:
