Jimmy Kimmel invited a whole bunch of celebrity guests to his show on Monday to help raise money for AIDS-fighting charity (RED).
In its fourth annual (RED) benefit special, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” saw Kristen Bell, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Pharrell, Mila Kunis, and more take part in sketches and singalongs, all in the name of charity.
“It’s refreshing to see so many stars joining forces to put a stop to something other than our president,” Kimmel quipped.
Bell, channelling the enthusiasm of a QVC presenter, earned some major “Good Place” karma by hosting the (RED) Shopathon segment, where viewers could bid on items to help raise money for the charitable cause.
The “Frozen” actress was joined by Saldana, Chris Rock (the new voice of Alexa), and even country singer Brad Paisley, who was tasked with cleaning up after Kimmel’s sidekick Guillermo apparently let a raccoon loose on the beauty products.
Later, (RED) co-founder Bono talked about the charity with Kimmel and revealed that he’s teaming up with Lady Gaga to offer a special experience to those who donate.
“[Gaga] and I are going to write a song about the winner of this sweepstakes,” Bono explained.
The U2 singer also performed a stripped-down duet of the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” with Pharrell.
At the end of the show, Kimmel gathered his all-star celebrity lineup for one big singalong. “If we don’t help people with AIDS, we’re going to hell,” the group sang as they poked fun at their fame.
