World peace is giving Sarah Jessica Parker and Gerard Butler a chance!

E! News confirms Friday that the dynamic twosome are confirmed to host the 19th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert, the celebration traditionally held in Oslo, Norway, the day after the awarding of the prestigious honor. Jennifer Hudson and Seal were previously announced as headliners for the event.

This year, the Nobel Peace Prize will be presented to the collective European Union.

Hudson and Seal join Norwegian rap group Karpe Diem, Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør and Iranian-born Swedish singer-songwriter Laleh on the concert lineup, with more talent to be announced in weeks to come.

"Through music, they will help celebrate and promote peace, informing audiences of the extraordinary contributions of the Nobel laureate," said Geir Lundestad of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Well, without a doubt they'll at least get people groovin' in their seats.

The concert takes place Dec. 11 at the Oslo Spektrum Arena.
