Last Night's Rainforest Benefit @ Carnegie Hall-This Year's Theme "Top 40 Hits from Proms"

When I first saw this, I didn't know what it was from...it seemed like a weird 70s variety show as it has singers, dancing men in underpants, Elton John, a draq queen (oh wait, that's Lady GaGa heh). But nope this is Debbie Harry, Bruce Springsteen, Lady GaGa, Elton John, Shirley Bassey, and Sting at last night's Rainforest Concert at Carnegie Hall in NYC.

Every year, this benefit has a "theme;" given the setlist from this year, I believe it may have been "prom songs" or "Top 40 Hits of the Last Few Decades" because it includes Madonna's "Material Girl," Springsteen's "Dancin in the Dark," Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom," among others. Obviously the person filming is a Lady Gaga fan given all the zooming in on her and such. And I'm such a girl, I kept looking at Gaga's boots thinking, "Those kind of look like the Alexander McQueen "Claw" boots, I wish they'd do a decent shot of them."

The video below is from the "all-star jam" at the end that was...wait for it...Journey's "Don't Stop Believin." Do not adjust your computer, what you are about to see really is real.
