CNN 2010 Heroes Saluted By Celebrities
Hollywood was out in full force for the CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute taping last night (November 20) in in Los Angeles, CA. The ceremony was hosted by Anderson Cooper, and despite the star wattage in attendance, the Chilean Miners were the stars of the show.
The 33 Chilean miners who survived two months underground were given a standing ovation at a star-studded show in Los Angeles, along with five of their rescuers.
Cooper told the audience, “For 69 days we were amazed by these men. Their ordeal was unthinkable; their rescue, unbelievable. No one has ever been trapped underground so deep for so long and survived. They endured a nightmare, experienced a miracle, and in the end became each others’ brothers and heroes.”
The show will air on CNN on Thursday, November 25th at 8PM ET/5PM PT.
