THIS WEEK: GH Nurses’ Ball 2020: What Will Go Down? Who Will Perform?

Courtesy/ABC

Even the coronavirus pandemic cannot stop the GH Nurses’ Ball!  The long-running ABC daytime drama series, who on any “normal’ year in our lives, would air these episodes in the spring, usually in May, is now going to air their staple event this week in August.

GH recently returned to production amid Covid-19, and now their annual songfest, and dramafest is about to be revealed for 2020.

In the promo for this week, looks like Nelle (Chloe Lanier) is on a mission that will collide with the ball, while Lucy (Lynn Herring)) as usual is in distress over the big event, and who knows what else might go down with Ava (Maura West), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and others?

Watch the teaser from ABC below, then let us know who you are hoping to see perform at the ball? And, what you hope happens to some of your favorite couples or Port Charles residents via the comment section below.

TPTB should tune in to the Nurse’s Ball from the 90’s. Those episodes were so well-done. I miss the 80’s & 90’s in Port Charles!

Budget budget budget budget! Did I mention budget? They just don’t have the budget to do it like they used to.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping this year’s Nurses’ Ball will be exciting and well done. Good luck everyone!

Please put this Nelle saga to rest. Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet—-it’s beginning to look like a rope-pulling contest going nowhere. Make her Nina’s daughter and put this never-ending-story to bed, as well. I must be Nelle’s only fan—-plus, after all is said and done, Carly will always be the villainess to me. The same can be said for Maxie and “et tu Brute”.( in more ways than one–eg: his hair. What is that? No rhyme or reason)—-soooo boring; so fruitless; so unproductive; so superfluous. This guy truly gets under my skin.… Read more »

“Eek” , mouse run; oh, it’s just Lulu I was floored, as she’s laying in to “brother” ( step I might add ) Nicholas, about his relationship w/Spencer. she has the audacity to throw: “what is more important than restoring my trust in you” even Laura would be miffed, grandiose step aside little one… I do not wish this all on Dante I agree with you ; @Nelle. ^^^^ “… Give the girl a spot to lay her head and plant her feet” Bam ! this is it ! because of her constant “mow over” every one knows the history…… Read more »

Hey, Patrick….I won’t get into insipid Lulu–you said it all and well. I expected so much more. And, this new Brook Lynn with those witchy eyebrows and scrunched up face is perplexing—-looks either angry or pmsing. Everyone is getting on my nerves except Ava , Nelle and Nikolas. Michael is his boring self —I would die if I were married to his type. Too bad Maxie is pregnant with Brute’s baby—will the child inherit that hair? Did you notice the malignant/satisfied smile on his face when embracing Maxie? This guy is an oxymoron personified. Can’t stand him!! Why, oh why… Read more »

Hi Celia!! 🙂
To give some drama and a total emotional fan bitch fest-
Maxie should have an abortion !!_______________
and-
Lulu– well, I’ve been thinking;
to send the Lulu character to your house to keep you company 24/7
but- I luvs yah too much to hurt you so badly ;)____________
Michael needs to get a brain tumour and turn him into a livid nasty villain charater. _______________
GH needs some dark crazy bad guys!
somebody to make our skin crawl_________________
GH (all) the soaps) are being written for nursing homes to keep the people calm.. like a viewing lobotomy thing lol

Oh Lordy!!!—, how much I’ve missed your comments, SusieQ—-Lulu and I would not hit it off—-I wonder what music she listens to—Lawrence Welk? None of the younger crowd acts young—-not even the teens—- Nelle is obviously leaving—-there goes the entertainment. I really wanted her to stay, but not as a killer—-I shouldn’t have been surprised; but, I admire Chloe her absolute talent. The character never put me to sleep. Even “the crazy bad guys” have turned into pussy cats. I thought new Nik would show some umph—he is a turn-on, in my opinion, but he’s also a puppet —-I am… Read more »

I – really – like how fast they MOVED, Valentin I didn’t think he had the 50 percent shares PLUS Lucy as tiebreak? As dastardly as they can? lets hope they let Valentin , perhaps actually get to know Ned why not forge an unlikely “ally”. get Ned back in the game…. sure would beat the boy scout routine with Michael. dag PUHLEASE for the love of GOOD ACTING I don’t know, do the writers have it in them to give us a corporate intrigue espionage… outside of mob sting bite and upchuck. as for Jason being in hosp… lots… Read more »

Who’ the dead man walking? Drew?

Most likely Taggart. His “death” in the hospital was obviously suspicious. Nobody actually saw him die, so a lot of us suspected it was a fake death all along. Made fairly obvious by Jordan suddenly having this mystery burner phone with an unseen person calling her frequently. Curtis answered the phone today, so apparently Taggart didn’t think that was a safe way to communicate anymore, so he took his chances and met Jordan in person… probably assuming that most of Port Charles would be focused on the Nurses Ball, so he wouldn’t be seen. Now the only question is how… Read more »

Everything you said makes perfect sense—-Davy suspects it’s Taggart , as well. I suppose revealing his “undead” condition would hinder any investigation concerning Cyrus—–whom, may I add, is on a short leash—will be gone soon enough.
I also think Drew is somewhere out there—-perhaps in oblivion ?—until a replacement is considered —-and some kind of far-fetched plot.

It would be great if it was Drew, but its probably Trina’s father. I can’t even remember his name. That’s how much I missed him.

maybe Sean but i dont care anymore…im almost done with soaps and even thinking leaving social media altogether!

No, Jimmy….don’t do that. Post once in a while—-everything has changed due to the virus. And, even after a vaccine is in effect, I doubt we will ever recapture our personal norm.
Chances are, given what a germaphobe I am, I will be wearing masks for the rest of my life. LOL.
Good to see you here, my friend.

I just watched the first episode of the NURSES “Ball” telethon. In my opinion that was the worst episode I can remember. I know covid probably changed things but, it was horrible! If you can’t do something right, don’t do it at aĺl.

Agreed, Davy—I guess my expectations were too high. What a let-down!! Even with Covid, there could have been some entertainmthe cast is interacting….so, what’s the problem? Money? Maybe, today? Not over yet.
Hmmmm, Trina’s father. Never thought of him. That’s how much I missed him, too. LOL.

I am finding the Ball extremely boring but I must say that Carly and Nina looked very pretty,unlike when in character, Carly snarkey and obnoxious and Nina constantly squinting and frowning,like she’s in pain does take away from their natural looks. Speaking of looks, I recently watched an at-home video with Maura West and couldn’t believe my eyes. She looked at least ten years younger than when she’s playing Ava with all the makeup. You can tell they are trying to work the COVD into the script in this Ball thing without saying anything explicit. If I hear the words… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
