In a special two-hour broadcast on Monday night's "Larry King Live," Hollywood stars helped raise nearly $9 million for Haitian relief efforts, a rep for the show tells UsMagazine.com.
Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul, John Mayer, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Seacrest, Nicole Richie, Joel Madden and countless other stars participated in the event called Haiti: How You Can Help.
"To come here and see people call in from across the United States, it was awesome," Lopez, who helped man the phones as viewers dialed in their donations to UNICEF and the American Red Cross, told "Extra."

In addition to taking calls, the stars auctioned off some of their prized possessions.
Actor Jared Leto beat out Seacrest in a bidding war over Larry King's suspenders and won them for $1000. In addition to the host, P Diddy auctioned off his sunglasses and Abdul brought a copy of the one-of-a-kind book, "Michael Jackson OPUS."

"It was wonderful to raise so much money and quickly," Abdul told Extra. "It's just heartfelt."
Both the Red Cross -- which earned $5.6 million -- and UNICEF -- which brought in $3.2 million -- kept their phone banks open after the show to handle the influx in calls.
