Miley Cyrus, Chris Colfer Hit CNN Heroes Red Carpet

With its celebration of ordinary people and extraordinary achievements, the CNN Heroes Tribute was a different kind of red-carpet event than the usual Hollywood affair—but that didn’t stop some of our favorite celebs from showing their support at yesterday evening’s ceremony! And photographers snapped some great shots when the stars came out last night to support this celebration of people who have dedicated their lives to making a difference.

Miley Cyrus, who showed her support with a performance of her hit song “The Climb,” showed up on the arm of Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne himself!) and was all smiles in a gauzy yellow gown. She later took to Twitter to express her gratitude for the opportunity to participate. “What a glorious night to be apart of. Thank you for having me on your stage @CNN Such an honor.”

Also in attendance? “Glee” actor Chris Colfer, who looked fresh-faced and dapper in a well-tailored suit, and “Scream 4″ star Emma Roberts, who beamed in a strapless LBD.
