There’s nothing we love than a sweet collaboration between two musical souls and that’s what we got this morning on Big Morning Buzz Live. Host Nick Lachey joined forces with tonight’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee John Oates on a stripped down, “modern” cover of the Hall & Oates hit song, “Out of Touch.
On Big Morning Buzz Live, Nick Lachey traded in his boy band days for the hair metal world of Steel Panther. He joined the band for an epic performance of ”The Burden of Being Wonderful.” We have to admit Sweet Nicky looked pretty sexy rocking alongside lead singer Michael Starr. Sadly, we don’t think Lachey will stick with the look even if it would make for a pretty great change of pace.
On Saturday, March 22nd, Big Morning Buzz Live host and 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey partnered with VH1 to give young students a chance to explore their love of music. The network hosted its third annual VH1 Save The Music Foundation Family Day at New York City’s The Anderson School, PS 334. A father himself, Lachey spent the day traveling the halls of PS 334, meeting students and taking hundreds of pictures with fans of all ages. Lachey even had the chance to re-explore his love of the saxophone, an instrument he hasn’t played in nearly 20 years.
On Big Morning Buzz Live, host Nick Lachey and special guest Regis Philbin provided Vanessa Minnillo with special treat. She was the unsuspecting honoree of a duet by the two singers. The whole thing was prompted by a fan who asked if the two men would ever sing together and, of course, Philbin being the showman that he is jumped on the idea. But they couldn’t possibly sing a duet to each other so they found Nick Lachey’s wife, who happened to be in the audience with their son Camden. After she handed off her adorable son, she took center stage and tried hard not to swoon. Watch their performance of Frank Sinatra’s “It Had To Be You” above.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Backstreet Boys global pop domination. A.J., Brian, Howie D, Kevin and Nick recently stopped by Video Hits One headquarters here in the heart of Times Square to promote their new album, In A World Like This, and our lucky photographer Jen Marigliano got to follow them around for the day.
John Legend always makes fans swoon, but with his latest album Love In The Future, he proves he’s just as romantic in real life as he is in his music. The album was inspired by his relationship with his supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen, who joined him in a very intimate video for “All Of Me.”
Last week, we laid out the case as to why Cassadee Pope might just be the next big country music star to emerge from the reality singing competition factory. You’ll be able to decide for yourself when her new album, Frame By Frame, drops tomorrow. Before that, though, take a listen to Pope’s hit single “Wasting All These Tears,” which she performed on Big Morning Buzz Live With Carrie Keagan this morning.
The list of successful musical acts whose careers have been launched on televised singing competitions can be counted on two hands. The U.S. version of American Idol has been most successful so far, producing bona fide stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Phillip Phillips, and Daughtry, and the U.K.’s version of X-Factor is of course responsible for unleashing the reigning world champion of boy bands, One Direction. The other singing competitions here Stateside have had less success up to this point, but the recent champion of The Voice, Cassadee Pope, looks well positioned to be the first breakout star from that program.
VH1′s September You Oughta Know artist Lorde visited VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live today to perform her smash hit “Royals.” The Kiwi teen looked chic and simple in an adorable black turtleneck and skirt ensemble and repeatedly played with her most famous asset: her glorious locks.
Lady Antebellum joined Carrie Keagan, Jason Dundas and the rest of the VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live family to discuss lead singer Hillary Scott’s pregnancy and how it has affected the group. They even gave us (and the world) a special treat singing an a cappella rendition of “Golden,” which appears on their latest album of the same name.
