Diamond Jubilee: JoBros, JHud, Coldplay, Faith Hill & More

From the Jonas Brothers and Jennifer Hudson to Coldplay and Faith Hill, music megastars braved the rain last night in L.A. to pay tribute to MusiCare’s Person of the Year, Neil Diamond.

I was there twittering away on the soggy red carpet and also from inside L.A. Convention Center’s West Hall, where 2,200 people not only helped honor Mr. Diamond but also raised money for MusiCares, the recording academy’s program that supports music professionals in financial crises.

Read on for my play-by-play tweets.
