GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Three: Trouble Looms For Ava, Cameron’s Heartfelt Song, A Liesl & Franco Duet

Courtesy/ABC

Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it the third installment of the Nurses’ Ball 2019 and this time there were several musical numbers to discuss, as well as story points moving forward.

Obrecht was back and in her full glory and that meant great news to GH fans to see Kathleen Gati appear on the Nurses’ Ball stage again.  However, Dr. O brought with her a friend, none other than Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth) who joined Frau Liesl in a rendition of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet “Guilty”.   The combo, obviously a play on how they do bad things to others (or have), and they have nothing to feel guilty about!  Then, there was that drop the mic moment, literally!

Cameron (William Lipton) has shown up at the Corinthos’ home to give Josslyn (Eden McCoy) a video message from Oscar (Garren Stitt) that he was holding on to per Oscar’s dying request to give to Joss.  Before he leaves, she asks Cameron to stay and watch it with her, but he tells her she should do this alone.  Later, Josslyn watches the video on her laptop.  Contained in the video is Oscar saying how grateful he was for their time together and that he hopes she will lives life to the fullest, starting with singing their song at the Nurses’ Ball.   Next, Josslyn comes down the stairs of the house in her gown ready to honor Oscar and she heads out to the ball.

When Joss arrives, Cameron is now taking the stage.  William Lipton performs a song he wrote called “North Star” against the backdrop of emotional images of the friendship between Cameron, Josslyn, and the late Oscar.  (You can watch it below.  It was one of the highlights of the ball thus far)

Lipton took to his Twitter account after the outpouring of kudos and support after his performance aired expressing: “Thank you so much for all your kind words for the song Cam was singing at The spotlight should be at the GH writers who inspired me to write this song. Their words in the script were so beautiful.”

Ava Jerome also took to the stage as the marvelous Maura West performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” as only Ava J. would do! A sultry chanteuse is this Port Charles bad girl, whose night may go from a cool performance to a nightmare now that a gloved figure has knocked out Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), which only leads to one conclusion .. serial killer Ryan is back.  Will Ava get her vengeance and kill the guy, or will someone else?

Elsewhere in story, Finn (Michael Easton) proposed to Anna (Finola Hughes) on-stage at the ball, and though it was a typical bumbling clumsy moment from Finn, it was all the same endearing, especially when Anna says “yes” to his proposal.  Later, the two spend some alone time where Finn explains why he chose the ring he did; harkening back to when she was blackmailing him in Europe (It was a Monaco blue sapphire he chose, and Monaco was the place where they started their unlikely pairing).

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) tries to warn Sam (Kelly Monaco) about Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), but her parents Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) come to her aid, and then Sonny once again threatens Shiloh.  Later, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) gets a call from Diane Miller that Nina (Michelle Stafford) overhears.  On the call, Willow mentions her baby’s father is in Port Charles.  Nina learns Willow had a baby, and Shiloh looks at Willow.

Laura (Genie Francis) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) are rescued in Canada, and Laura calls Kevin’s cellphone but it goes to voice message to warn him about Ryan heading to Port Charles.   Meanwhile, Curtis calls Chase (Josh Swickard) and tells him that Ryan Chamberlain is alive. and on his way to most probably the Nurses’ Ball.

So, what musical number did you enjoy the most on Tuesday’s Nurses’ Ball?  What did you think of Anna and Finn getting engaged?  Shiloh overhearing the news about Willow?  Josslyn receiving the video message from Oscar to perform at the ball? Comment below.

The ball was better today..
One act, I did like. (good one)
Dr. O and Franco..

Ava was good, as always..
Cameron’s song, I didn’t like the tear-jerker, not at all. That depressing crying stuff isn’t for me.
AHA – I’m not a soap masochist lol

No doubt Jordan will get dead Kevin’s kidney yuck ..

But Ava can’t sing!! I swear that stage isn’t big enough to hold Ava’s ego.
Everyone else was really good and professional.

No one sang well, none..
Dr.O was the best talent by far..
All the songs stunk lol
they were from the 40’s or somesuch era..

So, all in all, everyone rang a zero.
but== none are professional singers, so by that, they weren’t all that bad, considering.

I can’t believe you are watching this how embarrassing from the dress to the makeup to the awful singing ! Hide under a pillow ! The fact she got dropped into that storyline is embarrassing enough ! Very sad ! Genie does not need the money just exit ! They are still by all accounts not writing for her stop being so desperate still insurance whatever but do not humiliate yourself anymore Genie

su, I was a bit squeamish watches Ava on that piano! 🙂 And I admit that I DID squirm a bit watching the very “intimate” performance. Is it just me?

I guess when Shiloh dies, it will be Sonny who will be accused, since he’s been threatening him lately.
As an afterthought, do we think Dr.Byrne and Scott have the same hair stylist?

I always love the ball. Just some random thoughts. Um…Franco? Cute and all that you’d sing with liesl your buddy. Do you remember that she shot your wife about 4 years ago! For that matter…does Elizabeth? Not sure a supposedly reformed serial killer should be jumping up on stage with a fellow sociopath and singing Guilty. What was gimmicky and cute under Carlivati 5 years ago sometimes doesn’t sustain for the long haul.

Why don’t Kevin and Ava tell EVERYONE in their immediate circle about their plan to flush out Ryan??? Wouldn’t it be better to have EVERYONE in on it so they know what to expect?? Keeping it as a secret only manufactures drama and anger aimed at Kevin…which is counter productive to the goal of getting Ryan!! Stupid move from normally smarter characters.

That kid Cameron has positioned himself as a MAJOR talent and heartthrob. His baby faced cherub looks are so deceiving! His acting is great And his singing voice is beautiful! The song was a little long…but I think him and Joss could be a supercouple…if they both stick around.

I like that young black nurse. She is SO cute. Why did they not make her Epiphany’s daughter? It would have anchored them both in more of a family way. I enjoy any screen time she gets…she is so bubbly and cute.

Josh Swickard just keeps getting better and better! He has chemistry with everyone…and I like him with willow. I alSO like Michael and Sasha. I don’t know what the plan is for her character but I like seeing a fun side of Michael…and they have mad chemistry!

Franco and Liesl’s duet was the best of the whole ball. Kathleen Gati really is a goddess!!!

Kathleen has a beautiful, pitch-perfect voice. And Ava had to follow that? THUD!

Loved young William Lipton’s song. He’s a natural! And he wrote it too? Wow, impressive! He’s a keeper!

No Frisco Jones:

Cannot stand Babs Streisand BUT her and Barry Gibb live doing “Guilty” is a classic. Franco and Liesel, NO!

I dont think ONE note was on key to Ava’s song BUT she did look good!

Cameron has a future. He is acting better, handsome and will sing better. But for now, no Frisco Jones!

I find myself really enjoying the Nurses’ Ball this year! All of the performances have really great. “Chase” was fantastic, though I didn’t understand the dancers and him constantly referring to their cellphones. ~ Guess I’m too old to get it. Loved “Liesl” and “Franco’s” duet. I suspected he was going to perform when he made up some story about “Lucy” needing him backstage…as if. “Cameron’s” song was the highlight for me. It was fantastic and I loved all the pictures of the friends and family flashing on the screens. “Ava’s” number was kind of weird choreography-wise for me, but still “Ava”. Not having seen Wednesday’s episode, I can’t help but feel that that martini she drank at the end will be drugged. We’ll see…

Loved Dr. O and Franco. Loved Ava. Tired of Ryan (poorly written), Paxie (just, YUCK), and Oscar (NuMorgan).

I am afraid all of the praise has gone to Maura West’s head because that lady cannot carry a tune to save her life. Following on the heels of Dr’s O’s seamless, pitch-perfect performance, it was an embarrassing spectacle to watch.
West can act (albeit a bit too hammy for my taste) but she can’t sing, can’t dance.
A triple threat she is not.

Shay

Yes, Harry!…Dr. O’s rendition of “Guilty” was absolutely amazing!!! In addition to her “pitch-perfect” vocal performance, she also looked the part of musical diva to the glitzy hilt! The only things missing from this unforgettable scenario were some priceless reaction shots of utter incredulity at her temerity from Scorpio and Anna…THAT would have been the icing on the proverbial cake for me! As for MW’s Ava….exactly what you said! And I must add that I found Franco’s contribution to Liesl’s richly-deserved star turn equally as wooden and awkward….though he did clean up very nicely! Whilst I get the intended dark humor that these two legendary GH evildoers feel no guilt for their prior antics, I think Valentin would have made for a better dastardly duetting duo avec Obrecht…James Patrick Stuart CAN carry a tune with the best of them and is a real showman…Then again, the only person who could have truly done justice to that song with Liesl would have been her once-beloved Cesar! (Or maybe even Fluke???) Regardless, Kathleen Gati’s immense talent made this NB worth watching! Well done, Dr. O.!
