Jimmy Kimmel is the host and executive producer of the late-night talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on ABC. He has hosted such high profile events as the 2007 American Music Awards and the 2007 ESPY Awards. Kimmel co-hosted Comedy Central's "The Man Show," served for four seasons as on-air prognosticator for "Fox NFL Sunday," and co-hosted Comedy Central's long-running and popular game show, "Win Ben Stein's Money," for which he received two Daytime Emmy nominations and one win for "Best Game Show Host" in 1999. Kimmel's company, Jackhole Industries, formed with partners Daniel Kellison and Adam Carolla, are responsible for "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Man Show," "Crank Yankers," "The Andy Milonakis Show," "Gerhard Reinke's Wanderlust," "Too Late with Adam Carolla," "The Adam Carolla Project" and the made-for-Comedy Central feature film "Windy City Heat."

P!nk (Alecia Moore), since her debut in 2000, has been widely hailed as a fearlessly talented singer/songwriter, and the Pennsylvania native's genre-defying creative risk-taking has propelled her to global stardom. To date, the chanteuse has sold 24 million albums cumulatively worldwide. Her previous albums include: her 4 million-unit selling debut, "Can't Take me Home" (2000); her sophomore follow-up, "M!ssundaztood" (2001), which sold 11 million worldwide; the 2.7 million worldwide seller "Try This" (2003); and her recent effort, "I'm Not Dead" (2006), sold over 5 million units globally and spawned the hits "Who Knew," "U + UR Hand," "Stupid Girls" and "Dear Mr. President." Her 5th studio album, "Funhouse," will be released on October 28, beginning with her #1 single, "So What."

Jonas Brothers' meteoric rise as a pop culture phenomenon has come with countless highlights. Most recently they released their third album, "A Little Bit Longer," which debuted at #1, selling more than 525,000 units in one week. Paired with their eponymous CD and the "Camp Rock" soundtrack, they are the first group to have 3 albums in the top 10 in a single week. Leading up to the album, Jonas Brothers starred in the Disney Channel Original Movie "Camp Rock," which is the largest non-sequel premier for the Channel. They also sold out their headline U.S. tour in record time, including three nights at the famed Madison Square Garden. Jonas Brothers are currently in production on the new Disney Channel Original Series "JONAS," set to premiere in May 2009. In addition, Jonas Brothers started their own foundation to give back, Change for the Children (see www.changeforthechildren.org ) to support programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination and a will to succeed.
