The committee behind December 11's Nobel Peace Concert has named Scarlett Johansson as one of its two hosts, following in the footsteps of last year's impressive pairing—Uma Thurman and Kevin Spacey. Among the artists scheduled to perform are Feist, Diana Ross and Seun Kuti.
"We're extremely pleased Ms. Johansson will join us for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert," Geir Lundestad, the Norwegian Nobel Committee's non-voting secretary, said in a statement. "Her compassion and influence will help us tremendously in our mission of spreading the global message of peace."
