Who is who in the video We Are The World 25 For Haiti?

Asked by babygalll (2734points) February 27th, 2010

I have been watching the new version of the song We Are The World. There are quite a few people I don’t recognize. Does anyone know the who is who by order of appearance? Sounds silly, but it’s bugging me. I’ve seen the faces, but the names aren’t coming to me.

i just tortured myself with the video, i saw Pink, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson i think and some Haitian Kids running around looking joyful amidst all the ruins. Words can’t describe how wrong this whole concept is.

My son pointed out Justin Beeper in the very beginning, I recognized Josh Groban, Tony Bennett, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Barbra Streisand, (another son knew) Miley Cyrus, Wyclef Jean, Adam Levine (Maroon 5), Pink, Usher, Celine Dion, Fergie, Randy Jackson, at least one Jonas Brother (the boys think it was Nick), (according to my middle son) T-Pain, Snoop Dog, and I’m pretty sure I saw Kanye. I also saw Jeff Bridges.

An honorable mention goes to this version’s answer to Dan Ackroyd in the original, (gratuitous appearance by non singing comedian), goes to Vince Vaughan!

It was much easier recognizing the performers in this one with youtube and a pause button. I vividly remember watching MTV for hours trying to catch a glimpse of the original in order to identify all the singers.
