Courtesy/ABC

The singing, the dancing, the drama, the red carpet arrivals, all that GH fans have become accustomed to is back for the 13th time when General Hospital airs its Nurses’ Ball episodes.

Circle your calendars for May 22nd and make sure you RSVP to Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring)!

GH execurtive producer told Soap Opera Digest on the upcoming episodes: “This will be GH’s 13th Nurses’ Ball, and each year our wonderful viewers have come to expect plenty of music, dance, glamour and of course an abundance of drama. This year will be extra special, as we’ll have several tribute performances honoring the work of contemporary artists who have recently passed away, including David Bowie. There a lot of amazing performances and special appearances in the works. You won’t want to miss it!”

Watch the first promo featuring clip’s from last year’s ball announcing the May 22nd debut of the on-screen event.  Then let us know, who do you hope will be performing at the Nurses’ Ball? Comment below.

The nurses ball should had been a partially live two hour special where viewers could call in and make donations or bid on soap props like Tracys painting which could had raised a lot of money!!!

hey thats a great idea, if they did that, they would prob get real advocates of hiv to appear on the show, like elton john and sharon stone auctioning items from the show.

OR they could have surprised us all and aired the live Emmys in a VERY short form..Announce the winner..say thanks..NEXT! All the space for drama would be a number or two..done and done.

This was an event that had relevance at one time. It was an event that was brilliantly restored 5 years ago…..but the past three attempts have been carbon copies of the last! Naked men have no place at a fundraiset for AIDS. Shall we feature a bunch of cigarette smokers at a benefit for Lung Cancer????

Dan
Guest

Jenny, I’m not sure how men dancing in their underwear, not naked, let’s not be over dramatic now, have the same correlation to AIDS that cigarette smokers do to lung cancer. Care to explain that one?

This is an AIDS fundraiser. Not a Fun Raiser!!! Learn what this is about!!

Agree! I can’t emagine any hospital fundraiser on the planet with male dancers/strippers. So lie class

No need for the male dancers, really tacky with kids attending the ball. Enough already. Lucy can go too, a new host is needed

Amen to everything you said!…Time to put a fork in that overdone flaky flibbertigibbet act otherwise known as Lucy Coe. It ceased to be funny and charming many moons ago….oh wait, it never was!

Milo and his tacky dancers should have gone out the door with RC, as I assume it was his creation but perhaps it’s more the influence of FV.

Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Wally Kurth (Ned) are highlights.

Unfortunately, after the ball, Epiphany and Felix will be returned to cold storage until next May.

Will Lucas be taken out of cold storage for this year’s Ball?

From what I’ve seen, Ryan Carnes (Lucas) doesn’t really seem to want to be on the show. If so, it’s a shame as he’s a legacy character who’s easy on the eyes.

Lots of story to tell for Lucas

Shay
Guest
Shay

Yes, Yes, YES! to Kathleen Gati! Her Liesl O. could definitely do Bowie justice with her strangely offbeat, yet, absolutely phenomenal, talent!!!!!! As for Epiphany and Felix, the showrunners really missed the boat by “cold storing” both of these characters….they could have been the 21st century versions of GH’s Jessie Brewer and Amy Vining! (And it would have spared us all the insufferable Amy2, who looks to be headed toward “Fatal Attractioning” over Nathan.)

Love both Kathleen and Wally, both are such talented individuals!
Amy2 IS insufferable! She’s Tuesday/Wednesday “filler.”

Steve…. He is actually not a legacy character. Cheryl the hick and Julian Jerome are not legacy characters.

Steve
Guest

Jenny,
Respectfully, would you say adopted characters are not considered legacy? Lucas was adopted and raised from a toddler by Bobbie Spencer and Tony Jones.

Using that theory, Scott Baldwin and Emily Quartermaine would not be considered legacy, yet Hayden Barnes would even though she never had any interaction with Jeff Webber.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Not to make too fine a point of it, Steve, but Scotty would be a legacy character because of his late mother, Meg, not stepfather, Lee Baldwin! I looked it up and the character of Meg first appeared—with her little son in tow—on GH in 1965. Cannot get much more historical than that! As for Emily, she was never a real Q, or even related to anybody who came before her on GH, so no, she’s definitely not legacy! Now when it comes to Hayden, well, she’s just a horrible mistake of a GH character, period….and trying to reinvent her… Read more »

I think the nurses’ ball advocates HIV/AIDS donation in alerting and reminding the viewers of this worthy cause. after all, the NB is not a telethon. Although, the idea of a live NB for the purpose of call in donations is an interesting idea.

When they do have the guys do their dancing storyline have redirected the children to other rooms or sets. Generally, if I remember, Emma or Jake usually does her numbers early and the guys do their later and near the end of the NB.

ONE thing that would get GH major publicity for the NB is if they could snag Richard Simmons to do a cameo. He has been in the news a lot lately and for him to be on the show would hit every news show, website and newspaper.

Wouldn’t that be great, and if they did a spoof of the early ’80’s workout classes with the girls in headbands and leg warmers and the guys in short shorts-so fun!

Shay
Guest

That would be a more tasteful alternative to the same old “Chippendale-esque” segment that has become truly tiresome, dmr! .As far as Richard goes, I can only hope that if he were to make a return GH appearance, then it would be more in-step with his ’80’s persona, when he was sweet, sympathetic and caring as an exercise instructor who just wanted everyone to lead healthier and happier lives. That more recent monstrous creation that was popping out of closets and glitter-bombing people was simply a heinous headcase…and really not one bit funny!

I look forward to seeing what happens this year. I do hope that all the nurses that we’ve hardly seen in recent months like Epiphany and Felix will have more to do than poor Milo did last year. And then there’s Lucas who’s been in surgery so much that we haven’t seen or heard of him in months. The Nurses’ Ball is a time to see the cast show off their talents and I’d rather see more of the “non-contract” players than guest stars. I definitely don’t need some “name” person coming in to entertain. I’m a soap fan who… Read more »

Love the Nurses Ball, it’s been a staple of the show for so many years. It’s always fun seeing the cast show off their talents in singing, dancing, and yes even taking off their clothes, lol. You will never get a complaint from me about the gorgeous men of GH doing their yearly, shall we be nice and call it, a dance routine. A shame that some people can’t take the stick out of their back and enjoy the show for the fun and entertainment it is. Maybe Leave it to Beaver reruns would be more appropriate for some.

This week on ABC’s General Hospital look for the news of Jason (Steve Burton) being buried under the rubble in the cave explosion on Cassadine Island to have a ripple effect for his family and loved ones.

In the latest promo, Drew (Cameron Mathison) looks to deliver that news to Sam (Kelly Monaco) and her new beau, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna).  Then, Anna (Finola Hughes) delivers Jason’s fate to Sonny (Maurice Benard) as food goes a-flying! Finally, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has the task to report to Carly (Laura Wright) what happened to Carly’s bestie and almost husband!

How will Carly get through losing Jason and as she gets closer to the truth that Nina (Cynthia Watros) and Sonny had a romantic past and lingering feelings for each other, while the two were in Nixon Falls?  Will it all be too much for her to bear?

What will happen with Sam, now that Jason is gone, Drew is back ,and she is a new relationship with Dante?

Then, who will become Sonny’s hitman with no Jason around?  These are major questions left to be answered with the departure of the character of Jason from the GH canvas.

So, let us know what you think the fallout will be when Jason’s loved ones learn what happened to him? Do you think GH plans to recast the role, given that the pandemic is not going away anytime soon? Let us now via the comment section, but first check out ‘said’ ABC promo below.

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Photo: Podcast One

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.

What did you think about how Steve and Bradford addressed their disagreement on the vaccine mandate within the podcast? Will you be seeing Steve and Bradford live if they come to your town in 2022? Comment below.
