American Idol crowned its first winner on ABC Monday night, but it’s the ghosts of show’s past that really made an impression in a special segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

In a scene similar to the Michael Jackson-led music video for “We Are The World,” former Idol stars came together for a song telling fans what they’d been up to, and it’s hilarious.

Among the stars were former winners Ruben Studdard and Taylor Hicks, finalists Haley Reinhart and Sanjaya Malakar, and the infamous William Hung.
