'Weird Al,' Jodi DiPiazza perform 'Yoda' at Night of Too Many Stars

Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars featured bits ranging from hilarious (Paul Rudd and the “Wheel of Rudd”) to heartfelt (Gilbert Gottfried and Owen Suskind reciting lines from Aladdin). But the best musical moment happened when Jodi DiPiazza took the stage with one of her “favorite performers,” “Weird Al” Yankovic, to perform his Kinks parody “Yoda.” 

This is the second time DiPiazza, a 13-year-old accomplished pianist with autism, has performed at the event. Back in 2012, DiPiazza brought down the house when she was accompanied by pop star Katy Perry to perform “Firework.”

Yankovic came out in full Star Wars garb and the two were later joined by a choir of children with autism. 

Night of Too Many Stars, hosted by Jon Stewart, raises money for autism education.
