Nick Lachey And Big Morning Buzz Live‘s Favorite Performances Of The Season

View Photo/Video Gallery

It’s been a great year and a lot of fun on the set of Big Morning Buzz Live. As the current season draws to a close ahead of summer, Nick Lachey, Jim Shearer and the production staff look back on a number of buzzworthy live performances to pick their favorites of 2014. Everyone from Sam Smith to Pharrell Williams took the stage as Lachey and Shearer introduced fans to the hottest new bands and artists each morning. “This cycle we had some of the best, coolest artists perform in our studio,” says Associate Producer Sofia Gomes. We couldn’t agree more! The show saw no limits to genre, attitude, style and even studios. And nothing really beats The Fray performing on a bus. How is that for a musical version of Snakes on a Plane?

If Sam Smith’s Performance Of “Stay With Me” On Big Morning Buzz Live Doesn’t Make You Teary, You Have No Soul

Earlier this year we told you that Sam Smith was poised to take over the world. Well, we hate to say we told you so, but…it’s definitely starting to look that way! The young British soulster stormed the charts in 2013 with vocal turns on hits like Disclosure‘s “Latch” and Naughty Boy‘s “La La La,” and now he’s striking out on his own with the release of his debut disc, In The Lonely Hour. Tapped as June’s You Oughta Know artist, Smith swung by VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live today to serve up a stirring rendition of “Stay With Me,” his third single. Was it amazing? Yes! Did we tear up? Maybe…

A Week With Pharrell Williams

View Photo Gallery

It’s Friday and that means Pharrell Williams‘ weeklong stay at Big Morning Buzz Live has come to a close. All week, the singer graced the stage, performing songs from his hit album, G I R L. Nick Lachey and fans were delighted watching him as he and his team of backup dancers tore through “Marilyn Monroe,” “Happy,” and “Come Get It Bae” and bringing the fun, funky vibe to the set. In addition to all the performances, the singer sat down with Lachey to discuss who he wants to work with (“I’d play the tambourine on Prince’s album”), if political office is in his future (He’s “happy with the bowling pins [he's] juggling now”) and his love for “nasty parts.”

Is Pharrell Hiding “Little Sister” Miley Cyrus From The World?

Pharrell and Miley Cyrus struck up a unique musical bond that was showcased on the former Disney’s starlet‘s 2013 album, Bangerz. An endorsement from the producer extraordinaire helped Miley’s credibility, allowing her to become more than the girl who twerked all up on Robin Thicke at the VMAs. And she’s returned the favor by lending vocals to Pharrell’s latest solo album, G I R L. Lovers of liner notes and music nerds have probably noticed that Miley’s not listed as a featured artist on “Come Get It Bae,” but that unmistakable drawl is most definitely hers. So what gives?

Who Is Pharrell Williams Dying To Work With?

As you know, Pharrell Williams has graced us with his presence by taking over Big Morning Buzz Live all week long! With more than 15 years in the music game, we can’t possibly rattle off all of the hits the spectacular producer has given us. But one thing is indisputable — the man is clearly a musical genius.

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.

Nick Lachey Ditches Pop Music For Hair Metal + Steel Panther

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.

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.

Watch Regis Philbin + Nick Lachey Serenade Vanessa Minnillo

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.
