Sting, Josh Groban, John Legend and This Is Us star Chrissy Metz are slated to perform at NBC's fifth annual Red Nose Day Special, it was announced Monday (May 20).

The four artists join previously announced Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton as performers at the event, hosted by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews. In addition to music performances, the special will also feature Saturday Night Live stars Michael Che, Colin Jost and Kate McKinnon in a sketch and Daryl Hall and John Oates debuting the video reimagining of their hit "You Make My Dreams."

Celebrities including Reba McEntire, Julia Roberts, Saoirse Ronan and Chrissy Teigen will also be in attendance at the star-studded charity event. 

The two-hour-long special airs at 8 p.m. on Thursday in support of this year's Red Nose Day campaign, which raises money and awareness to ensure impoverished children in the U.S. and around the world are "safe, healthy and educated." In its four years in the U.S., Red Nose Day -- created by Yesterday and Love Actually director Richard Curtis -- has raised almost $150 million.
