How did you manage to put everything together so quickly?

George Clooney, we hope you’re getting some much-deserved rest after everything you did to make sure last night’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon went off without a hitch. It didn’t surprise us to hear you say you hadn’t slept in days! You got more than 100 big-time celebrities to come together for this truly important cause, and you should be really proud of yourself. And even though you shrug off praise, saying that “Haitians are having a lot tougher time than us,” we just want to congratulate you on your incredible feat.

The night was a huge hit, featuring more than 20 musical performances and speeches from celebs in New York, Los Angeles, London and even Haiti! We were glued to the TV for two solid hours, and we can’t remember the last time a telethon has grabbed our attention like that. Watch one of George’s emotional speeches from last night below:
