The night’s line-up includes Bono, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox, John Legend and Snoop Dogg. [Ed note: Because nothing says family entertainment like Snoop Dogg.]

While no charities or organizations have been named yet as beneficiaries of the event, there no doubt will be a wide range of groups set to take part. From the article,

“While last year’s two-hour show was spread over the course of two nights, this time around, “Idol Gives Back” has been condensed to a one-night, but still two-hour, show. It airs Apr. 9.”

I haven’t watched Idol for a few seasons, but I love the idea of leveraging the massive audience numbers to help make a difference for charities. For more info, check out the official site here.
