Stars Come Forward for American Idol Gives Back

by at . Comments

For at least one week, the homoerotic exchanges between Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell won't be the focus of American Idol.

Hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, tonight marks the first of a two-night event called Idol Gives Back. A slew of celebs and performers will grace the FOX stage, with poor African towns and citizens receiving proceeds from the event.

Contestants, such as Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis, will sing "life anthems" meant to inspire those around the world.

Meanwhile, the list of stars set to make an appearance continues to grow. Daniel Radcliffe will be on hand, not dressed like Harry Potter, we presume.

Keira Knightley will hopefully have a good meal first and then use that sexy British accent to lure in donations, as well. Should we also be expecting an accent from Sacha Baron Cohen? Or will he leave the character of Borat at home? Tune in to find out!

The actors will take to the stage alongside singers like Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Annie Lennox, Pink and Gwen Stefani.
