    Good news! Probably the first live TV performance of Darkside.

    This is good news for Kelly!  I can’t wait for her performance!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Excellent!  I’m hoping to hear Kelly sing “Darkside”.

    Between Kelly, Carrie, and the fact that Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen are hosting I’m going to be watching way more of this than I’d planned to.

    Excited to see Kelly perform Dark Side! She definitely slays that one live.

    Carrie’s hinted she’ll be performing something other than Good Girl. Maybe Blown Away or Two Black Cadillacs?

  • Nick

    Yes, time to move on to the Dark Side era. Let’s hope it picks up enough steam to carry album sales into platinum status!

    Whoa, is this announcement from 2012 or 2006?  haha  

    I’m excited for what will most likely be the first tv performance of Dark Side. Although it’s unlikely, I wouldn’t be surprised if something turned up before then.

    Maybe, just maybe, there will finally be that Kelly/Carrie picture people have wanted for years.  Oh who am I kidding, they hate each other.  ;)
