Hope for Haiti Telethon Raises $57 Million

By

Friday night's "Hope for Haiti Now" telethon, organized by George Clooney and broadcast on pretty much every channel they play on the treadmill at the gym, ended up raising a whopping $57 million for relief efforts in the earthquake-devastated nation. Our favorite number was Justin Timberlake's "Hallelujah." But it was certainly not the only excellent performance, and the resulting album was the No. 1 seller on iTunes in eighteen countries this weekend. [NYT]
