Idol Gives Back: Carrie Underwood and Elton John's Performances


The 'American Idol' alum sings 'Change', Mary J. Blige along with a number of celebrities performs 'Stairway to Heaven' and Elton John wraps the April 21 charity concert with 'Your Song'.

From Pasadena Civic Arena, "Idol Gives Back" host Queen Latifah along with her "Just Wright" co-star Common presents a performance from Carrie Underwood. The "American Idol" alum delivers "Change".

Prior to Carrie's performance, George Lopez appears in front of audience, taking over Ryan Seacrest's duty to announce the first round of the evening's result. He talked about considering to audition to replace Simon Cowell and then asked the seven contestants to stand up.

Instead of reading who got the lowest vote, he tells them to sit down again and relax, "It's about time that somebody judged the judges for a change." He jokingly critizised Randy Jackson for saying "dawg" a lot. After making jokes to the other two judges; Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres, he announced Simon was supposed to be eliminated and go home to England before adding volcanic ash has saved him.

A group of performers including Mary J. Blige, Randy Jackson and Orianthi share the spotlight to sing a star-studded rendition of "Stairway to Heaven". Closing the benefit concert is Elton John with "Your Song" and a message about safe sex.

    Carrie Underwood and Joss Stone knocked it Out of the Box.I thought Mary J. Blige was a better vocalist than what I saw on this show and Alicia Keys who I think is Great should have left Empire State of Mind in New York but this was a great show all together and I even let loose of some of my change to the cause.
