Hollywood star Will Smith will host this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert with his actress wife Jada Pinkett Smith. The couple said hosting the show would be an awe-inspiring experience.

"The opportunity to recognise the laureate's contributions to the world peace movement will be an awe-inspiring experience - we are both humbled and honoured to take part in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year," mirror.co.uk quoted Smith as saying.

The show, to be held in Oslo Dec 11, will feature performances by Wyclef Jean, Toby Keith, and Donna Summer, Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi as well as Amadou And Mariam, a blues and jazz duet from Mali.

The winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in Oslo on October 9.
