Kristen Stewart introduced Jon Bon Jovi at the 12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief, and the New Jersey rocker proceeded to bring the house down at MSG.

On the road doing press for On the Road, Stewart made a surprise appearance in New York to make a plea for donations to the ongoing relief efforts.

"She flew in from California just to be here tonight because she wanted to help out," Master of Ceremonies Billy Crystal told the sellout crowd Wednesday.

"She got here in three seconds because that’s what vampires do when they fly at night, they go very fast. Please welcome, a fantastic young actress, Kristen Stewart!"


"I am here to talk to you about New Jersey tonight," Stewart began, tucking her hair behind her ear in typically awkward fashion and launching into some terrible statistics.

Not the least of which? Sandy caused $37 billion in damages to New Jersey alone.

Who better than to raise cash to rebuild than the pride of the Garden State himself, Jon Bon Jovi. Stewart quickly gave way to the N.J. native’s emotional segment.

Bon Jovi, who also appeared during Bruce Springsteen’s 12-12-12 performance, moved the crowd with a rendition of his biggest hit, "Livin’ On a Prayer."

JBJ and his band also performed "Wanted (Dead or Alive)" and "Who Says You Can’t Go Home," with Springsteen joining him on the latter. Pretty great.

Between these big names and a Nirvana reunion, the A-list event helped raise tens of millions of dollars – $30 million in ticket sales alone, before donations.
