ABC beamed some much-needed Disney magic into America’s living rooms on Thursday, along with more cheese than Mickey Mouse could ever hope to devour in a single sitting.
Hosted by American Idol‘s Ryan Seacrest, The Disney Family Singalong featured a wide array of familiar faces performing an even wider variety of timeless Disney jams. “From our living rooms to yours, we take a break and come together to share in the joy of Disney and some of our favorite music at a time when we need it most,” Seacrest said at the top of the hour.
Following a quick vocal warm-up, courtesy of Kristin Chenoweth (click here to watch), the show began with Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert — plus an impeccably choreographed cameo from Julianne Hough — serving up “Be Our Guest,” the iconic show-stopper from Beauty and the Beast. Watch:

* James Monroe Iglehart and the Broadway company of Aladdin: “Friend Like Me”
* Ariana Grande: “I Won’t Say I’m In Love” (Hercules) — Props to Grande for playing her own back-up Muses. Her enduring appreciation for Hercules is among her most admirable qualities. Watch:

* Donny Osmond: “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” (Mulan) — It hurts my heart that there are still people out there who don’t know that Osmond sang this iconic gender-role anthem. Hopefully this will put an end to that.
