UPDATED: Miley Cyrus, Mary J. Blige, Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka, 'Glee's Darren Criss, 'Idol's' Stefano Lagone were among the performers at the event benefiting the Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to the LGBT community under age 24.
The A-listers were out in full force at the Hollywood Palladium on Sunday night for the Trevor Live show benefiting the Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to the LGBT community under the age of 24.
Lady Gaga was honored with the Trevor Hero Award for "being an inspiration to youth and increasing visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community." The singer recently founded the Born This Way Foundation to empower youth to be proud of who they are and to accept others as they are.
Gaga was introduced by the family of Jamey Rodemeyer, the gay teen who committed suicide in September after years of being bullied. Gaga has paid tribute to him in the past, including at September's iHeartRadio music festival in Las Vegas. The singer has repeatedly said she wants to make bullying a hate crime.
"This award means more to me than any Grammy I could ever win," the singer said in accepting her award.
Meanwhile, Google Inc. received the Trevor 2020 Award for "increasing visibility and understanding of LGBTQ issues" for their efforts to improve workplace equality.
The night also featured performances from Miley Cyrus, Mary J. Blige, Lee Ann Rimes, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka; Glee's Darren Criss; American Idol finalist Stefano Langone; and American Idol winner Kris Allen; among others.
Among the other stars in attendance were Zoe Saldana, Christina Hendricks, Julie Bowen, Amber Heard, JC Chasez, Eddie Cibrian, Josh Duhamel, Fergie, Jayma Mays, Zachary Quinto, Julianne Hough, Diego Bonato, Queen Latifah, Amy Poehler, Christina Applegate, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
