Jimmy Kimmel assembles star-studded musical number for AIDS benefit

Posted on

ABC

Jimmy Kimmel turned his Tuesday night show into a benefit for (RED), a charity built to raise funds for the fight against AIDS. He assembled a star-studded crew of celebrities (including Neil Patrick Harris, Channing Tatum, DJ Khaled, Brandon Flowers, Halsey, and Julia Roberts) and together with the fancy dress, holiday vibes, and abundant talent, it wasn’t long before they gathered around the piano. Together, they formed The (RED) Pack and sang a delightful, cynical song called “We’re Going to Hell.”

The song listed opulent rich-people indulgences (“I’ve had lobster tails and caviar and truffles by the pound / They serve it on fine china, and I throw it on the ground”) before declaring, “If we don’t help people with AIDS, we’re going to hell.”

Singing wasn’t the only thing on display, either. At one point Harris and Tatum got into a tap dancing contest, with Tatum showing off his scene-stealing skills from this year’s Hail, Caesar! Unfortunately, they chose to do it on carpet, where no one could hear their actual tapping. 

“We’ll put it in later, it’ll be fine,” Kimmel said.
