Corporate sponsors included Fox network parent company News Corp., ExxonMobil, Allstate and Ford. In addition, Ryan Seacrest, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell donated their salaries for the evening.


The evening's most stunning commitment of resources may have come from British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who announced that the country would provide funding for 20 million mosquito nets to be sent to Africa, at an estimated cost of $200 million. (Thanks, Great Britain!!)
