American TV viewers can tune into Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert on Sunday on a couple of channels.

Cable's Freeform will air the event live beginning at noon MT — and it's a big event.

In addition to Grande, scheduled performers include Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, the Blacked Eyed Peas, Take That, Pharrell Williams, Usher and Niall Horan of One Direction. It's a benefit for the victims of the May ww terrorist bombing in Manchester, England, which killed 22 people and injured many more.

"This Sunday, when Ariana Grande and her friends return to the stage, the world will stand united with families in Manchester and across the United Kingdom," said Ben Sherwood, president of Disney/ABC Television Group, in a prepared statement.

In addition to the live telecast on Freeform, sister network ABC — Ch. 4 here in Utah — will air an hour of highlights from the event after Game 2 of the NBA playoffs. (So probably beginning sometime between 8:30 and 9 p.m.)
