Simon Gets It Back at Idol Gives Back

During the fund raiser “Idol Gives Back” special on April 9, Simon Cowell gets a taste of his own medicine as he gets roasted for his V-neck shirts and haircut. This year, the Emmy-Award winning television event returns to raise awareness and funds for The Children’s Defense Fund, The Global Fund, Make It Right, Malaria No More, Save The Children, U.S. Programs and the Children’s Health Fund.

Aside from performances from this season’s American Idol contenders, the show will feature performances and support from more celebrities. Although Teri Hatcher’s vocal performance will unlikely land her a singing contract, it was still worth watching if only to watch a one-time unique performance collaborated by other television stars. More worthy performances were given by Annie Lenox, Fergie, John Legend, Snoop Dog, Maroon Five, and many others. Other celebrities who showed support were Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Bono, Jennifer Connely, Forest Whitaker, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, and many more.

The overwhelming support from the entertainment industry just proves that this event is not only worth watching, but also worth our charity.
