Courtesy/ABC

This week saw the conclusion of the four-part GH Nurses’ Ball 2019. Throughout the episodes, several of the cast members of the ABC daytime drama series took to the stage to perform musical numbers through the lens of their characters.

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”?

Cast your vote below in our poll, but before you do, you may want to check the performances again at the bottom of the post before you make your selection.

Then let us know in the comment section your thoughts on the best performance.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

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.

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
Guest

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… Read more »

Shay, it was nice chatting with you on the 56th (anniversary thread). Still wading through to see what I missed during my sabbatical. Brilliant idea about the nightclub, PC needs one again! The talent should be allowed to shine more than once a year—or during the occasional karaoke at The Rib. I’m not a song and dance guy by any means but dare I say that some of those performances (especially over the years) were rousing? In complete agreement on the supremely talented Kathleen Gati. I hope you’ll be able to find time once again for GH amid the British… Read more »

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)

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Tells Nina He Knows Exactly Who He Is; Jason & Carly’s Wedding Comes to an Explosive Conclusion

Is it game over for Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros), or does she have another trick up her sleeve to keep Sonny (Maurice Benard) to herself, now that he remembers who is he?

On Friday’s dramatic episode of General Hospital, “Mike” looks to be gone and Sonny has come back in full force complete with a super hero moment escaping from being trapped underneath the beam that had fallen on top of him inside the burning Tan-O.  Sonny makes his escape after inhaling so many fumes, that he needs medical attention and is rushed to the hospital with Nina going along with him.

Inside the hospital, once given the all clear, Phyllis (Joyce Guy) tells Nina, “Mike” is asking for her, while Jax (Ingo Rademacher) pleads to let the doctors handle this situation.  But, Nina heads inside the room to see Sonny.  Then came the dramatic moment that many GH fans were waiting for.  As Nina calls him “Mike, he rips off his oxygen mask in anger and says that his name is Sonny and he remembers everything!  Nina does a pivot, knowing she is caught, and says the name may have have been a fake one, but they cannot deny the way they feel about each other.  She tells him that she honestly loves him and Sonny defiantly tells her NOT to say that.  Meanwhile Jax confirms to Phyllis that Nina always knew that “Mike” was Sonny and hid it from her and Sonny for months!

Back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly’s (Laura Wright) wedding comes to a conclusion! No one interrupts the wedding and the two look lovingly at each other to start their new life together as husband and wife.

Courtesy/ABC

After the ceremony, mobsters Ms. Wu, Vincent, and Charles have a moment where she says “be wary of tomorrow”.  Jason and Carly have a moment alone where Jason looks truly in love with Carly now and all of those feelings he had buried for years have now come back to the surface. How will this all play out when Sonny comes back into everyone’s lives, alive and well?

After the reception had ended, Jason and Carly get in their limo to drive away as newlyweds.  She asks Jason what Ms. Wu whispered in his ear at the reception, he says she confirmed something he already knew.  Meanwhile, Vincent and Charles get in their limo.  Charles shares the world is about to be a better place without Carly and Jason in it.

Next, Carly tells the driver to start the car, and we see a bomb device under a car and the chapel blown up as the show comes to its conclusion.

Our bet is that the Novak/Buscema car was blown to bits, not Jarly’s limo thanks to a Wu double-cross, but we shall see next week! Great performances from Maurice Benard, Cynthia Watros, Laura Wright, and Steve Burton throughout this one.

So, what did you think of the moment Sonny told Nina he remembered who he is? What did you think of Jason and Carly’s nuptials? What do you think will happen next? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Courtesy/ABC

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.
