The Concert for New York - Carrey causing... waves!

What a night it was on October 20th, when 16 million viewers tuned in to the "Concert for New York"! The second multi-star benefit event for September 11th relief efforts aired live from Madison Square Garden, and following countless celebs from music and show biz, Jim Carrey entered the stage at the final.

Not only did he decide to be a flag instead of waving it, physically turning into the stars and stripes one (a hilarious sight), Carrey also impressively displayed his endless "trust" in the police and firemen by stage diving into the audience!

His tone then changed into a very serious and touching speech expressing his respect to the victims and helpers. He said "This is the end of a selfish and cynical age, because you reminded us of who we really are."

Carrey introduced Paul McCartney, stressing the privilege to announce and perform with people actually greater than himself (oh his wonderful irony) and later returned to the stage during his last two songs to sing along with many other stars that joined in. Needless to say, the overall atmosphere at Madison Square Garden was absolutely electrifying.
