Mariah Carey, Beyoncé Knowles and Usher are among the singers being pressured to give back money for performing for family members of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Nelly Furtado is the first to open her wallet.

"In 2007, I received 1million$ from the Qaddafi clan to perform a 45 min. Show for guests at a hotel in Italy," the singer, 32, writes on Twitter. "I am going to donate the $."

Carey also reportedly received $1 million from the Gaddafi family. Knowles and Usher performed for them at an undisclosed price.

Nelly Furtado, Sarah McLachlan Likely at Olympics Opening

The 2010 Winter Olympics may be lacking snow, but that hasn't stopped the leaks.

The first names of likely opening-ceremony performers have filtered out, thanks to spies at the rehearsals and a commercial for the Vancouver Games that aired during Saturday Night Live.

Canadians Nelly Furtado, Sarah McLachlan and Bryan Adams all seem a lock for Friday night. Best bets are also rockers Rush and jazz singer Nikki Yanofsky, also both Canadians. The '80s band Devo will be among the bands performing at the Games' medal ceremonies.

So far no word on Shania Twain, the overwhelming first pick of 62 percent of readers in a PEOPLE poll, nor for other Canadian poll faves Avril Lavigne (24 percent) or Celine Dion (7 percent). Furtado got 2 percent in the poll.

POLL: Who Do You Want to Perform at the Olympic Opening Ceremonies?

Originally posted 02/03/2010 10:45AM

The world will be watching as the Winter Olympics kicks off Feb. 12 at Vancouver's BC Place Stadium. And while the traditionally lavish proceedings introduce the competing athletes to viewers, the host country is responsible for providing the headlining entertainment. (Remember China's awe-inspiring fleet of dancers and musicians during 2008's summer games?)

Typically, the performers herald from the host country – and Canada has produced a ton of world-renowned talent – from Bryan Adams to pop upstart Justin Bieber to Neil Young. Already, Shania Twain carried the Olympic torch in freezing temperatures through her hometown, Timmins, Ontario. Hopefully she'll get a chance behind the mic in Vancouver, too.
