Having been left out of the 'We Are the World' remake to benefit Haiti, Huey Lewis recorded a solo version of the song in a parody shown on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC).

Lewis, a participant in the 1985 original, changes the lyrics of the song to "I am the world," sings backup to himself and mimics various other singers while wearing a variety of outlandish wigs.

The original 'We Are the World' was recorded almost exactly 25 years ago to benefit the charity, USA for Africa. Recently, 80 stars got together, including co-writer Lionel Richie and producer Quincy Jones, to remake the classic song to help with Haiti relief efforts. The video was supposed to debut last night during the Olympic opening ceremonies, but they just showed an excerpt. We have the full video here.

It's nice to see some of the same people involved in making the first video in the remake, but this version is populated by mostly new faces including Jennifer Hudson, Josh Groban, Wyclef Jean, and Kanye West, among many others. In fact, there were so many artists featured in this video, that I didn't even recognize them all. The new version is about a full minute longer than the original, and the real question is, how does it stack up?

Entertainment Tonight, Barbra Streisand, We Are the WorldDozens of stars gathered to out-sing and out-diva each other for 'We Are the World - 25 for Haiti,' a remake of the song that brought in $63 million for the Ethiopian famine 25 years ago. New footage of the recording was shown on 'Entertainment Tonight' (weekdays, 7PM ET on CBS).

Sure, it's a great cause, and we're sure director Paul Haggis will do it justice. Still, we have a feeling that Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion and all the rest will show up on an episode of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX) real soon.
