The Best and Worst of the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit
Yesterday’s 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy relief raised over $30 million dollars, but it wasn’t all good. We’re still cringing for Bobby Moynihan’s awkward appearance as his ‘SNL‘ character “Drunk Uncle,” for example.
Kanye West wore a skirt, which is bad in and of itself, but it was a leather skirt, which is always terrible. And Adam Sandler. Oh, Adam Sandler. You don’t have to take our word for it, here’s visual proof of the highs and lows of the 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy Benefit Concert.
Drunk Uncle makes us feel uncomfortable
Adam Sandler becomes the one-millionth person to cover ‘Hallelujah’ with ‘Sandy, Screw Ya!’
Kanye rocked a skirt
And many people Tweeted about Kanye’s wardrobe…
Kristen Stewart mumbled through her presentation on Sandy’s damage. And also dressed like a bumblebee.
Billy Crystal did some bad jokes about ‘Homeland’ and how kids don’t know who he is. We get it, Billy — you’re 1,000 year old.
Paul McCartney joined members of Nirvana onstage…
… And then didn’t play any Nirvana songs. (What, Sir Paul wasn’t down with ‘Rape Me’?) But Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear performed a new song called ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ with Macca. Do we smell a new supergroup starting? Hey, it can’t be any worse than the Traveling Wilburys.
Roger Waters of Pink Floyd played with GE Smith from ‘SNL,’ some dude who sang like three songs and Eddie Vedder.
Finally, Bon Jovi joined Bruce Springsteen onstage (!!!!!) and practically exploded New Jersey! So, not all bad.
