GH social media accounts teased: “After bringing down the house last year, we couldn’t wait for you to see Chase’s latest Nurses Ball number – so here it is! This is the only place you can watch his entire performance before it airs next week.”

The 2019 Nurses Ball begins tomorrow on the Friday, May 17th episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

Well, Josh always brings his A game. It was great and the portion with Katelyn was sweet. Loved seeing the smoke coming out of “Shiloh’s” ears. LOL!

he so cute and I just love him and willow together. Love the performance, not cheesy like some tend to be, so hopefully the count for cheesy will be low this year.

^^^^ “…the count for cheesy will be low this year”

Laugh out loud – getting the giggle

that Harrison Chase IS a show unto himself. it’s too bad that this “run” may have outlasted it’s true intent

other than to showstop their best… it’s so funny how we see very little of the blowhard build that Frank Valentini “dullard” troupe dare to care about the Nurses’ Ball.

Sonny / Carly / Jason /Sam / Finn / Michael / Peter / Franco

even in the last 4-5 years ^^^ his pets do very little. are we resting their acting chops?!?! oh my god.. getting the giggles . Jeez!

I’ll take some SHARP Chedder

I’m hoping for a full disclosure on Dr. Neil Byrne… come on.. tell me he doesn’t have any resemblance to Alec Baldwin AND as Tuc Watkins father

FUN’ny Post.

Josh did a great job. Ryan Peavey could never hold a candle to this mans talent! Willow, she is cute. Why cut your hair sweetie? But anyway, nice sneak peek.

Josh did quite well. His performance was entering.
but- the song, bad choice LOL

The British rock band Coldplay is OK
but-
the American- Chainsmokers ‘electronic’ music is annoyingly Yuck-
I would never download the song, not if free LOL

{{ can’t hold the bad choice of that song against Josh, not his fault the song is quite somber LOL
Something upbeat and toe-tappy happy would have been good.

Ugh. I’m really trying with our American soaps. Maybe it’s having watched the same stories play out year after year over the course of many shows come and gone. To be fair I’ve been watching since the late 60’s. Now with britbox and hollyoaks on Hulu, I’m loathe to watch. Thanks to YouTube TV I’m glossing over episodes from July-December 2018 after trying and failing to engage with the first half of the year 2018. Right now DAYS has my full attention with Marlena’s wedding but I’m not sure how long that’ll last and when the show drops off again. Oh well. I read lots of comments here and it’s quite discouraging and makes up my mind to just not bother with the others. I’m not going to waste time slugging through recaps and fast forwarding 3 soaps hours at a time. Our daytime needs a Renaissance. TPTB want them gone. I can’t.

Good song choice. Looking forward to the Nurse’s Ball. Not looking forward to more Shiloh, Monotone Sam, or The Parking Lot FLOP! “Paxie”=ZERO chemistry. I haven’t watched this week. My face would freeze cringing at PLP.

^^^ “…The Parking Lot FLOP! “Paxie”=ZERO chemistry”

I couldn’t find another site to start my bitching, so this will have to do. Am watching the first day on the red carpet, and of course the whole thing is being ruined for me, with the spotlight being on Nina and all of her stupid ridiculous antics. Reminds me of a freshly caught fish, left to just flounder around. I just wish someone would put her out of her misery! Can’t even enjoy the guests because of her eye rolling, and utter lack of professionalism. Why have they let her ruin something that most of us were looking forward to?

Nina is a bit awkward. The character never seemed to take-off. & The Nina and Willow “dynamic” is SO stupid.

Thanks for your reply. Nina ” a bit awkward?” Don’t get me started, again! Sorry, I can’t stand her anyway, but she was way worse than Lucy Coe’s antics. Seeing as how Lucy was off, trying to seduce Kevin, she couldn’t do her usual shtick, and we got stuck with Nina.

Watch the video Chance has a great voice and he can move what a singer he is .I love the nurses ball it fun to watch .

Violet Lemm

Adorable! He didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed his moves more than the song itself. but what I loved more than anything was the smoke coming out of Shiloh’s rotten ears, even in the video. Can’t wait to see it on TV.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

Photo: ABC

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar’s Memorial Brings With It Remembrances By Those Who Loved Him

On Monday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) summoned family, friends, and loved ones to honor Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt), since he just past away due to his battle with brain cancer.  Oscar had his own way he wanted everyone to mourn his death and Ned and Olivia carried out his wishes.

When everyone gathers together, Ned and Olivia announce that Oscar wanted this to be a celebration.  After everyone arrives they sit picnic-style and some get up to speak to remember the amazing young man that Oscar was.  It turns out to be Michael (Chad Duell) who starts the tribute by saying that Oscar was brave to date his intimidating sister.  Next, Cameron (William Lipton) touches on his journey to friendship with Oscar.  Joss (Eden McCoy) finds the courage to go next and remembers how she had a crush on Oscar and how he wasn’t easy to talk to but how she was intrigued because he was mysterious. She then tells show she eventually fell in love with Oscar, and how she will never forget him.  When Drew (Billy Miller) gets up next, he breaks everyone’s heart by stating that he will be eternally grateful to have known his son and will always carry him in his heart.

Next, Ned asks everyone to follow him to the meadow.  Once there, Ned and Olivia hand out seeds to the attendees.  Then, Ned and Olivia reveal a plaque dedicated to Oscar, as everyone throw up seeds that land in the grass for it to grow.

Finally, Kim (Tamara Braun) speaks. She talks about how she raised Oscar on her own, and how after she learned he was sick, she brought him to Port Charles so he could meet his true family.  And with the analogy of the seeds, she says it helped Oscar blossom and how it enriched his young life.  In a heartbreaking moment, she thanks Drew for giving her son courage and being his dad when he needed it, and to Joss for being her son’s first love.  Kim hopes that Joss will come back to the meadow often and think of him.  They share an emotional hug.

Later, after Drew thanks Ned and Olivia for putting this all together for his son, Sam (Kelly Monaco) finds him and tells him he was a great father … and is a great father.  He wants to make sure that Scout knows he loves her.

Back at the meadow, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds Kim in tears alone at Oscar’s plaque. He tells her he understands the deep pain and void she is going through, but she has to hold on to how Oscar touched so many lives.   Once Sonny leaves, Kim in tears looks up to the sky and says she’ll always love her baby boy.

The episode featured touching performances by Tamara Braun, Billy Miller, Eden McCoy, and William Lipton, who all carried the Oscar dying storyline so beautifully along with Garren Sttit.  Additional kudos go to Lisa LoCicero and Wally Kurth, who as Olivia and Ned, kept Oscar’s memorial moving forward, and were also emotional throughout.

So, what did you think of the episode and the performances? Are you sad Oscar is gone?  Comment below.
