No one likes to be out-done by his partner. And your other half's a UN Goodwill Ambassador, you especially can't miss an oppurtunity to do your bit for a good cause, so Brad Pitt will be joining an all-star line up when Idol Gives Back  returns next month.

Bono will be back again for his second year helping out, as will Idol alums Chris Daughtry and Carrie Underwood. Making their debuts in the night of skits, performances and visits to deprived areas will be Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Annie Lennox, John Legend and Snoop Dogg.

Organizers including Simon Cowell and Idol creator Simon Fuller decided to bring the event back after last year's two-part special raised $76million in donations for children in the U.S. and Africa. The money paid for food as well as programs to improve the health and literacy of some of the poorest children in American and Africa. "This year's event will be bigger and more ambitious than ever," says an Idol rep. Brad will make sure of that.
