From The House of Me:

We are delighted to confirm that although Annie Lennox has indeed been unable to travel to the USA for Idol Gives Back due to the Icelandic eruptions, she has not cancelled as reported by some news articles and will still perform on the show via video, accompanied by a live orchestra.

We also know that many of you have been trying to guess what song she will perform, well… we are pleased to announce here exclusively that Annie will perform a brand new song for the first time. The song will be available to purchase from iTunes USA after the show.
