Jimmy Kimmel Live aired its fourth annual (RED) benefit show on Monday. 

The host was joined by Bono, Will Ferrell, Kristen Bell, Channing Tatum, Snoop Dogg, Mila Kunis, Pharrell, Chris Rock, Brad Paisley and Zoe Saldana throughout the night.

“It’s refreshing to see so many stars joining forces to put a stop to something other than our president,” Kimmel said of his all-star roster of guests.

The show began with Kimmel and Bell hosting a QVC-style showcase of products for viewers to bid on to raise funds for (RED). Shortly thereafter they were joined by Rock when they recognized his voice coming from an Alexa speaker.

"Chris, you're the voice of Alexa?" Bell asked.

"Yeah, I'm the voice of a lot of things," the comedian replied. "I've actually been living up Shaq's ass for the last few years, I voice him."   

When the trio opened the floor up to questions from the audience, a familiar face showed up: Ferrell. The Saturday Night Live alum asked a number of queries, each while wearing a different costume. He then stole a Vespa scooter.

Later, Bell, Kunis and Tatum posed for a selfie with Kimmel’s head of security and sidekick, Guillermo.

Bono and Pharell took the stage to perform a stripped-down version of “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees.

The special episode also featured a (RED) Shopathon, which showcased many (RED) products and experiences for the most recent campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to raise money and awareness for the fight against AIDS.

Bono, who co-founded the organization, sat down with Kimmel for an interview during last year's special episode. Barack Obama, Ashton Kutcher, Bryan Cranston, Rita Wilson and Bell also appeared during the third annual benefit show.

The event took place ahead of World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.
