Jodi DiPiazza previously made headlines when she sang "Firework" with Katy Perry at the 2012 edition of the autism fundraiser.

Young Jodi DiPiazza definitely keeps good company.

The 13-year-old stole the show, again, at "Night of Too Many Stars," Comedy Central's biennial autism fundraiser, joining "Weird Al" Yankovic for a duet of "Yoda," a Star Wars-inspired take on The Kinks' classic "Lola."

DiPiazza played piano and sang lead vocals while Yankovic, dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi, beamed proudly and lent vocal support. Later in the performance, the duo was joined onstage by the Actionplay Chorus, seven children with autism who excitedly provided backing vocals.

This was DiPiazza's second smash success at the Comedy Central telethon. Back in 2012, she made headlines by appearing with Katy Perry and singing a stirring duet of the latter's hit, "Firework." Watch her latest performance below.
