It takes a lot to silence actor, humanitarian, and social worker to the people Brad Pitt, but the folks at American Idol did just that on Sunday night.

Pitt was speechless after a nearly 30 second screamfest when he walked onto the American Idol stage to tape a segment for Fox’s second annual Idol Gives Back. Once the audience calmed down Pitt tried to say “thank you,” but his microphone wasn’t working. So Idol stage manager Debbie McVickers rushed up to see what was wrong and joked that she “just needed a reason to touch him.” Another female production assistant was also needed and McVickers joked again, “We need more women to touch him.” Oh McVickers you funny little so and so.

Last year, the inaugural Idol Gives Back campaign raised more than $75 million for domestic and international charities and this year they’ve already beat that number after a $200 million pledge by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to pay for 20 million mosquito nets for African families in need. Nice one, Gordo! The campaign also paid tribute to Pitt’s Make It Right foundation to help rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Don’t miss Idol Gives Back on Wednesday, April 9th and catch performances by Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, John Legend, Annie Lennox, Gloria Estefan and Mariah Carey.
