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
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.

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)

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
