Scarlett Johansson to host Nobel Prize concert

Feist, Diana Ross will perform

Scarlett Johansson is set to host this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Concert.

The 15th annual event is set to take place in Oslo, Norway on December 11 and will feature performances from Feist, Julieta Venegas and Diana Ross.

The gig will be held the day after the Nobel Peace Prize is given out to Martti Ahtisaari, former president of Finland, for his work resolving international conflicts.

“We’re extremely pleased Ms. Johansson will join us for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert,” said Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, in a statement.

“Her compassion and influence will help us tremendously in our mission of spreading the global message of peace.”

Additional acts are expected to be added to the concert lineup in the coming weeks.
