Anybody else planning on watching this?
Stevie sounded terrible. Just sayin’.
Why are they not introducing the performers, or putting an overlay at the bottom identifying them?
I was just wondering the same thing. I’m not all up on pop culture and that blonde singing right now is amazing - who is she?
Christina Aguilera (sp)?
I think star presence is not supposed to be important here. They aren’t saying the names of the performers on the Radio-Canada French language show for Haiti either.
Once Christina stays away from that warbley shit she does she’s very impressive and smoking hot to boot.
Oh and that’s Sting
Which is exactly why I didn’t clock to her name.
I’m not that bad.
I’m guessing they are not showing names for fear that it would seem intentionally self promotional.
You can usually see who’s who by watching the chatter at http://twitter.com/#search?q=hopeforhaiti
I was watching but I got too sad…
I’m watching… some of these performances are incredible.
I have to say nearly all the singers are knocking it out of the park. I hate Justin Timberlake’s own music but he was absolute class on this.
Does anyone know if they’re going to make the songs available, like a fundraiser album or something? Because I would totally buy it.
Just as I was typing an answer Tom Hanks gives it on the show. Available on iTunes if you missed his bit.
I’m actually surprised at how much I’m enjoying this. I usually hate this Hollywood crap, but the performances are beautiful and the production is hopeful rather than like a remembrance service.
Adding how much they have personally donated would help as well
Yes, it’ll all be on iTunes.
J Hud’s “Let it Be” made me tear up.
I was surprised myself. What is impressive is that a 2 hr special of this quality was thrown together and played on all the broadcast stations.
I was impressed how well organized it was. There was some hits and misses musically, but they actually stayed on schedule and stayed on message. I hope whoever organized this does the Oscars!
