And for a bit of Jersey pride, you can catch part of Jon Bon Jovi's performance with Bruce Springsteen in this video…
Adam Sandler (accompanied by Paul Shaffer) told Sandy off in his own version of "Hallelujah."
Sure, he sort of wrecked the original song, but it was a humorous moment at the event and it got some laughs.
Among some of the other great musical moments from the night were classic rockers The Who and The Rolling Stones. Also performing were Alicia Keys at the piano and Kanye West in a skirt. And there was a performance by Coldplay's Chris Martin and REM's Michael Stipe of "Losing My Religion." Catch part of that one below...
We were also treated to a pretty fantastic set by beloved New Yorker Billy Joel. The concert provided hours of musical entertainment for viewers and hopefully raised a lot of money for the Robin Hood foundation to help those Sandy victims struggling as the weather gets colder and the holidays are upon us. The album is available for pre-order at iTunes, with an expected release date of December 18, 2012. All proceeds of the album from iTunes are said to be donated to the Robin Hood Foundation. And those who want to make a donation can go to 121212Concert.org.
