Rita Ora was among the stars at Global's annual Make Some Noise Night, which raised £645,432 for various charities.
Singer Ronan Keating surprised guests as he joined a star-studded list of performers, including X Factor judge Ora and X Factor presenter and singer Olly Murs.
The event, hosted at London's Supernova, saw celebrities and musicians uniting for the charity, set up by Global - which aims to give a voice to smaller charities and projects which struggle to be heard.
Irish singer Keating said: "When I was asked to do it I was delighted, the event last year raised a lot of money and where the money goes is incredibly important, for those charities that don't have the opportunity to raise money like this, almost forgotten charities in a way, it's important that Global do what they do."
For the second year in a row, Global united its radio brands - Heart, Capital, Capital Xtra, Radio X, Classic FM, LBC, Smooth and Gold - to raise money for disadvantaged young people across the country.
Smooth and Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway said: "This is what's brilliant about the job that we have that we're lucky. Our job is to communicate to people, all sorts of things, whether it be on Smooth or TV, you're there to communicate all sorts of issues. Sometimes you're delivering bad news but when you do things like this, you're giving a lot of hope and doing something positive."
Talking about Good Morning Britain's latest addition, TV personality and journalist Piers Morgan, she said Morgan has "got such a huge personality and he's a brilliant journalist".
"I've known him for a lot of years and he just brings all of his 'Piers Morganness' to the mix," she added.
Auction prizes on the evening included a private dinner with magician David Blaine, a tennis lesson with Tim Henman and tickets to VIP events like the X Factor Live final, the Baftas and the 2016 Wimbledon Men's Final.
Stephen Miron, Group CEO of Global, said: "Once again, Global's Make Some Noise Night has been a terrific success. We have brought together Global's eight radio brands, which reach 24 million listeners every week, to raise a record amount of money to help disadvantaged youngsters.
We have also raised awareness of the extraordinary work that smaller charities and projects are doing across the UK."
