Several Lite Rock artists are involved with a benefit concert and telethon this Friday night from 8-9pm to benefit those impacted... by Hurricane Sandy.

Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Sting and Christina Aguilara have all agreed to be a part of the Friday night's concert from Rockefeller Center in New York City.

The concert, which will be broadcast on NBC-TV and it's cable stations including Bravo, CNBC, USA, MSNBC, and E!, will be hosted by Matt Lauer. A similar concert in 2005 raised over $50 million when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

Although I think the concert is a great idea with a great line-up, I wonder how much performing we will actually see with only a one-hour show.  Why so short, NBC?
