Crystal Bowersox is NOT going home. If you missed her touching performance last night, please do watch.
ANYway. It was a star-filled night on Idol Gives Back. The two-hour-plus show devoted most of the airtime to raising funds for children’s charities with a series of celebrity pleas and performances from Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood, Elton John, the Black Eyed Peas, along with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as Bill and Melinda Gates.
The most touching segment was with Annie Lennox and a precious little girl she met…a tiny little 7-year-old girl who has pneumonia and AIDS, which could have been prevented if her mother had had access to anti-retroviral drugs when she was pregnant. It’s totally heartbreaking; the little girl weighs what a 1-year-old should weigh. This little beauty never complained, and always had a smile.
