New Jersey Native, Bon Jovi's performance featured footage of him surverying the damage in New Jersey and speaking with victims of the storm along with an unplugged version of his hit, "Living on a Prayer."
Other celebrity appearances included Billy Joel, Jimmy Fallon, Steven Tyler, Mary J. Blige, Tina Fey, Jon Steward, Whoopi Goldberg, Danny DeVito and NBC's Brian Williams. Images of victims begging for help, paired with visuals of the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy were shown throughout the show to remind viewers how intense the damage was and how much help is needed.
Arguably the most emotional performance was the last one, when Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band closed with the song, "Land of Hope and Dreams" to tell the victims that there is hope, people do care about them and we will come together to pick up the pieces and re-build.
