FatMusic will be the focus of Thursday's (March 10) episode of the NBC reality show "The Apprentice," with appearances by Lil' Kim, Eve, Fat Joe, Barenaked Ladies, Moby, Gene Simmons, Lil Jon, Simple Plan, New Found Glory and Jadakiss.

Each of the artists will be approached by contestants to donate a "personal experience" to be auctioned off for charity through music channel Fuse's "Daily Download" program. The team whose auction items raise the most money for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation will be declared the week's winner, while a member of the losing team will be fired by show patriarch Donald Trump.
