If you’re in other than the US you will have to use Hola, Anonymox or other sort of browser app/see it, but it’s well worth it.

At the last Night of Too Many Stars in 2012, then 11-year-old Jodi DiPiazza performed “Firework” with Katy Perry and brought the house down. This year, she returned to perform “Yoda” with Weird Al Yankovic in his parody of “Lola” by The Kinks. They were also joined by the Actionplay Chorus, a group of children with autism,

DiPiazza was diagnosed with autism at age 2. She has accomplished a ton in her young life, being a student at the Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division, as well as studying piano, voice, music theory, composition, jazz piano, guitar, and songwriting. When she was just 9, she wrote a song called “Heroes of Autism” for Toys R Us and helped that campaign raise more than $3 million.
