Now it’s time for you to weigh-in and let us know what was your favorite musical performance? Is it sultry Ava’s (Maura West), “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”, Cameron Webber’s (Wiliam Lipton) original song, “North Star”, the GH Nurses rendition of “Best of My Love”, Josslyn Jacks’ (Eden McCoy) emotional “A List Of Things To Do”, Chase’s (Josh Swickard) rousing “Something Just Like This”, Liesl Obrecht and her buddy, Franco’s take on “Guilty”, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia Falconeri’s (Lisa LoCicero) “Get Closer”, or Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) version of “Nothing Without You”?

They were all so good this year that it was difficult to pick just one. I went with Cameron’s song, but the Nurses did a really wonderful job and I failed to mention that before. Great job!

Without doubt, Cam’s “north star”! That young man is a natural, so comfortable on stage.
Next, Ned and Olivia–though I think they could have made a better choice in song.
Ava? I squirmed a bit, I must admit. (Ahem!)
Chase’s was a bit of a disappointment. He’s a good singer, but, again, the song choice was not the best.
Valentin–not scintillating. His piano playing is proficient–and, I suppose, his singing.
Meh!

Hi Nancy! 🙂
Ava performed-
Film noir sultry female singers were mostly poised on a piano, it was the sexy thing back in that era. lol
Ava was Vamping according to those days/song..
She did well..

But I gotta say;
the choice of songs were all lowkey sleepers and weepers..
Not one toe-tapper so to say..

Now– the Boomers (the huge percent of soap fans) were from the era of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard etc.
or=
The Rolling Stones, Beatles, Led Zeppelin (still a fav to All gens) The Doors (forever great) Velvet Underground, The Who, Van Morrison.
((I heard them many times, My mom, Grandparents still get down to them, I checked out and have played their tunes))
But- the songs of the Ball= 2 thumbs down.

Heey Boomers!!
— Rock ‘n’ Roll Will Never Die — !!

Those were the days huh.
And betcha when driving you are tuned into Your Golden Oldies! Singing along reminiscing of the day.
And– the Nurses Ball music choice Stunk!

So- which of them were the best… I gotta say none because of the songs they performed.

Hey again, su!
I do like a range of music–and I’m an alt country fan forever. Am liking the sisters Shelby Lynne and Allison Moorer’s new album. And give me some Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings anytime! Emmylou Harris is a perennial favorite.
And, of course, I can still sing all the words to the songs I used to hear on the radio back in the day. You wouldn’t remember “Your Hit Parade”; I used to sneak in the house as my sister and I were using the old wooden (yes!) push mower and put my hand on the back of the old radio (for better reception) and listen to Patti Page, Kay Starr (“Cross over the Bridge”–can still remember all the words to that one), etc.) And, of course, I’ve been playing Bob Dylan’s winner “Time out of Mind” this week. And I have to play Jerry Jeff Walker’s classic “Ridin’ High” ever now and then. I do love music; I’m all over the map, as you can tell.

You can clearly tell that Mike has run it’s course.. to prop, Sonny… mentions at this year Nurse’ Ball… that they performed

mentions Summertime

OKAY Mike “did” engage

I agree with you. The songs were yawners, and even Ava did not top her performance from last tear, which I loved. I can still see the look on Sonny’s face! The performances were also lackluster.

My vote is for Kathleen Gati-minus Franco. I don’t think singing is his strong suit, maybe alone, never heard him sing, but him chiming in with her, spoiled it for me. Her voice is beautiful alone. The year she sang You Were Always On My Mind to Nathan and daughter Britt, just tore me up.
The rest of the performers were good, and did their best. I did miss Magic Milo, who is always a winner. I would have enjoyed a surprise performer, someone totally unexpected, and never heard from before. I loved Epiphany and the other nurses. They are good singers.

Exactly, Violet!!!! Dr. O can always stand alone on her own talent….no co-star required! Franco’s stilted addition to the song simply interrupted KG’s incredible mojo as Port Charles’ resident NB diva…..but she was still magnificent! The GH showrunners should definitely have Liesl purchase her own nightclub in order for her to incorporate a regular cabaret act into the show! She totally has both the voice and versatility to perform a wide range of musical offerings! More Dr. O please!

Harry

Right? I mean, when did Franco become the little joiner? I was so enjoying the purity of Kathleen’s pitch-perfect voice before Kermit the Frog decided to join in.

Shay

Tell me about it, Harry! Are Franco and his lovely Liz destined to be the “Ozzie and Harriet” of Port Charles? Next thing you know, he’ll be wanting to lead a pack of Cub Scouts on their summer camping trip! All of this sweetly domesticated, pillar of the community-style reformation really doesn’t suit Franco’s once-mirthful madman of murderous misdeeds persona. The change is simply too great to be plausible.

Violet Lemm

OMG, what a wonderful idea. I would love to see something like that come to fruition..They might call it the Wizard of O’s. The possibilities are endless.

Shay
Shay

Yes, Violet! The possibilities are indeed endless! Given her mysterious Dr. O moniker, there are so many clever names for a club that could be drawn upon by Liesl! Simply “O!” would say it all, or how about “O My!” Or “O No!” The there’s “Liesl O’s”—-sort of a play on the famous “Jackie O,” or the slightly naughty “Big O’s!” Whatever its title, I envisage some decadent, atmospheric, slightly shady den of iniquity circa the late ‘20’s Weimar Republic…we could expect no less from this glorious bad gal goddess! Lol….Quite frankly, I don’t care what her nightspot would be called….I just like the idea of Kathleen Gati having a place to showcase Obrecht’s amazing talent 24/7, 352 days a year, because she really is that awesome, no matter the genre of music she performs. It’s all topnotch with this superb songstress in the equation!

Cameron hands-down! Vocal performance, guitar-playing, songwriting, emotion!

Also, nice to see much love given to songs from the 1970s:
Get Closer (Seals & Crofts)
Guilty (Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb)
Best of My Love (Emotions)

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
