How did Katy Perry make Jon Stewart cry?

It was a particularly special duet of her song Firework…

DAILY SHOW HOST Jon Stewart was moved to tears on TV in the US over the weekend after Katy Perry performed a duet with a young autistic girl.

Night of Too Many Stars featured the talents of Seth Rogen, Kevin Bacon, Stephen Colbert among others, as well as a performance of Call Me Maybe featuring Carly Rae Jepsen…. and Harvey Keitel!

It was Katy Perry and Jodi DiPiazza who stole the show though. Eleven-year-old Jodi was diagnosed with autism at the age of two having never spoken or made eye contact with anybody.

After beginning ABA therapy Jodi’s love for music was discovered and she now studies composition and got to perform with one of her heroes.
