Actress Scarlett Johansson is to co-host this year’s Nobel Peace Concert, which will be headlined by Diana Ross.
The event is to be held in Oslo, Norway on 11 December, which is the day after the Nobel Prizes are presented.
Also on the bill are Canadian musician Feist, US country singer Dierks Bentley and Nigerian performer Seun Kuti.
Johansson’s “compassion and influence” would help to spread a “message of peace”, Nobel committee member Geir Lundestad told the Associated Press.
Johansson said she was “truly honoured” to have been invited, and paid tribute to the winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize, Martti Ahtisaari.

“2008 has proven to be an extremely strong year for an immensely diverse group of filmmakers tackling a range of subjects and forms in new and dynamic ways,” Executive Director Michelle Byrd said.

By the way, this will be the last update for about a week or two as I am currently moving on transferring the site to another host. The updates will resume once everything is moved over.

In an effort to raise its socially conscious voice to the already loud socially active part of its environment, YouTube has launched a campaign with the lofty “Millennium Development Goal” of “cutting global poverty in half by 2015.”
The campaign, “In my name,” unites the online destination with Global Call to Action Against Poverty, Oxfam International, Save the Children and Comic Relief to help spread the message that poverty around the world needs to be eliminated.
To get out the word, YouTube last week unveiled a dedicated micro-site, YouTube.com/inmyname, where visitors can upload videos stating their name, home country and a message to their government about the need to meet the poverty goals. Among the celebs who already have put videos on the site are Mischa Barton, Ellie McPherson, Kristin Davis, Annie Lennox, Scarlett Johansson, John Legend, Wyclef Jean and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.
