by at . Comments

Even the most cynical individual - like one who disparages Angelina Jolie by picking apart her motives and psychoanalyzing her actions with no evidence to back up one's negative claims - must admit:

Idol Gives Back is a very cool event.

The annual special gathers together A-list celebrities from every industry and raises millions of dollars for causes around the globe. Unless your name is Tim Urban, you must consider last night's broadcast to be a major success.

From Jennifer Garner reading to an infant, to Fergie using her sex appeal to encourage donations, we've posted a slew of Idol Gives Back photos below:
