OH LAND TO PERFORM ON MTV'S "RESTORE THE SHORE" TONIGHT
11 / 15 / 12
MTV has announced that dozens of stars, artists and organizations have joined in the effort to #restoretheshore and help rebuild Seaside Heights, New Jersey – the heart of the Jersey Shore, which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Generations have grown up enjoying the iconic Seaside boardwalk, but with the city condemned and many local businesses and homes ruined, Seaside needs urgent help to get back on its feet. Thankfully, some of entertainment’s biggest stars are answering the call to action and will be part of MTV’s “Restore the Shore,” a one-hour fundraising special to air live at 11pm ET on MTV, MTV.com, MTV mobile and MTV radio tonight, November 15th.
“Restore the Shore” will feature live performances from Gym Class Heroes (with special guest Oh Land) performing the comeback anthem “The Fighter,” as well as “American Idol” Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips performing his stirring hit “Home.” Stars contributing messages of support who will be featured on-air include One Direction, Alicia Keys, Mac Miller, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Pharrell, P!nk, Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian, Ne-Yo, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, No Doubt, Carly Rae Jepsen, Swizz Beats, the Jonas Brothers, Ludacris, L.A. Reid, Wendy Williams and many more.
From 4 pm until midnight (ET) on Thursday, the cast of MTV’s “Jersey Shore” – as well as stars from other top MTV shows including “Awkward,” “Teen Wolf,” “Teen Mom,” “The Challenge,” and “The Real World” – will be live in MTV’s Times Square studio, calling donors to thank them for giving. Unlike a conventional telethon where viewers call in and hope to speak with a celebrity, MTV’s “Restore the Shore” will feature stars personally calling individuals who donate via Indiegogo at RestoretheShore.MTV.com
