PLAYBILL BRIEF ENCOUNTER With Fantasia Barrino, Stepping Into Her Favorite Era in Broadway’s After Midnight – At the press preview for the new Broadway musical revue After Midnight, which began performances Oct. 18 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, Fantasia Barrino admitted that she was a bit nervous before offering members of the press a sneak peek of “Stormy Weather,” the 1933 tune by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler that she performs in the show.

    The AMAs just tweeted a preview of James’s appearance on Lance Bass’ upcoming show AMAs on Demand airing on 10/24.
    In this segment they are recapping the year 2013 for One Direction.
    (He’s a little like a wacky co-host, LOL)

    AMAs ?@TheAMAs
    From a leaked song to the #BestSongEver, 2013 was crazy for @onedirection! Watch @lancebass & @DurbinRock’s 1D recap

  • HMc

    yep a wacky co-host … LOL

  • justmefornow

    I’ve always felt that he and Casey are such characters they should have their own show, lol.
    I’d definitely watch.

    Excited to be playing @jayleno tomorrow!!! Make sure you DO NOT miss this!

  • roarpen

    So is this timeline thing just online? How long is James’ segment? Any publicity is good publicity when you are getting ready to release new music. : )

  • girlygirl

    I know we knew Angie was doing a Christmas tour, but did we know it was in support of Michael W Smith on his tour?

  • girlygirl

    Looks like there were a bunch of ex-Idols at the Opry tonight. Not sure how many of them were actually performing…


    Saw @AmericanIdol peeps at @Opry tonight! @AylaBrown & I were on s 5 & @ImMattGiraud 8!

    @rebeccasjones: @dannygokey @KrisAllen great to see you two tonight!

    (she works for Michael W Smith and tweeted earlier that she was at the Opry)

  • DragonFly

    A fast-paced banter like that only looks easy—impressed!, James could certainly be a worthy (zany) comedic co-host. He’s fitting in very nicely there.

  • DragonFly

    “I’d definitely watch.”
    Don’t think you needed to add that–it’s a given we’d be there. Paul McDonald, & Scotty also as I remember “bits” they went into when they were interviewed on AI together. Guess you could say James was the common “detonator” preventing any serious interview was going to happen LOL.

  • justmefornow

    I’m not sure how long his whole appearance will be. The 1st show from 10/17 I saw featured a rapper with Lance. They did a few segments like this and an interview about the dude and what he had going on, coming up, where to follow him, etc. stuff like that.
    I saw it on YouTube linked from the AMA site.

  • justmefornow

    Yeah not as easy as it looks. You have to read very quickly from a teleprompter. I love how he just goes with it and embraces the cheese, lol.
    He’s a natural.
