How Did the Divas Do?

If you missed it, you can watch the performance of “Just Stand Up” from "Stand Up to Cancer" here.

Personally, I was a little disappointed with the performance. Nicole Scherzinger (of the Pussycat Dolls), who was filling in for Sheryl Crow, just didn’t cut it. Mariah Carey looked totally bored—probably because she has such a small part in the song. Someone apparently didn’t tell Natasha Bedingfield to not attempt any ad-libs (Yikes!). And without Melissa Etheridge the song totally lost its heart and soul, although Mary J. Blige did a good job trying to compensate.

But how cute was a clearly starstruck Miley Cyrus?

And since this is an “Idol” blog, I will say that Carrie Underwood did fine…

Of course the important thing is that “Stand Up 2 Cancer” raised money for a very important cause. We should be getting some numbers on just how much in the next few days…
