Call us crazy, but does it seem a little odd that someone who threatened “We’ll put a boot up your ass”  in his song “Courtesy of the Red White and Blue” will now perform at the Nobel Peace Prize concert?

That’s right, country superstar Toby Keith will perform in Oslo on Dec. 11, one day after the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded, according to the Associated Press.  He’ll be joined by Wyclef Jean, Donna Summer, Luis Fonsi and Amadou & Mariam. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will co-host the concert.

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Oct. 9. It is awarded, according to inventor Alfred Nobel’s will, to someone who has done the most work toward “the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
