‘The Voice’ Winner Jordan Smith

His blind audition wowed the judges – Gwen Stefani even raced out of her seat to give Jordan a hug!

adam-levine-jordan-smithAs the winner of  NBC’s Season 9 ‘The Voice’, Jordan Smith has a very unique voice – so high pitched that he’s often mistaken for a woman on the phone.  As a kid he dealt with self-esteem issues and always had trouble fitting in.  Jordan wants to show people it is okay to be yourself, even if you’re different.

Now newly engaged and a new album ready for release – Jordan Smith has been on an incredible journey and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon!

Jordan’s debut album “Something Beautiful” is scheduled for release on March 18th.

I spoke with Jordan during his time on season 9 of ‘The Voice’…


Drew Lynch “that guy that stutters”

Drew Lynch!

Portland, I expect you to  pack the house for this kid!

As seen on season 10 of America’s Got Talent, Drew Lynch won the hearts of millions! He was my favorite, I’m pretty sure I exceeded the allowable votes one is allotted for a contestant on America’s Got Talent. I wanted him to win SO bad!!

My 80 year old mother just loved him, said she wanted to bring him home. (and not in a weird way…get outta the gutter!)

I had the opportunity to talk with Drew during his appearance on season 10 of AGT….



A Child’s View of Christmas

During the holiday season, there’s nothing more heartwarming than to hear a child’s view of Christmas.  As adults, we cannot help but think back to our own innocent days.

Brothers, Van (9) and Nash (6)

Merry Christmas!  May the magic and innocence of the season stay with you forever!

Terry Crews – the Manliest Man Ever!


Every now and then the ‘fan’ in me gets in the way of the ‘interviewer’ in me.  Talking with Terry Crews was one of those times!

Actor, comedian, author, former NFL player, ultimate family and fitness enthusiast (those muscles!),  –  Terry Crews is a true renaissance man!

Terry returns Detective Sergeant Terence “Terry” Jeffords on FOX’s award winning comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine this fall for it’s 3rd season.   




Ryan Guzman – NBC’s “Heroes Reborn”


This is Ryan Guzman. He’s gonna be your next big crush!

Yes. He’s single. Very much so!

In addition to playing Carlos in the new NBC drama “Heroes Reborn”, Ryan has also starred in…

  • Step Up Revolution
  • Step Up: All In
  • Pretty Little Liars
  • The Boy Next Door – opposite JENNIFER LOPEZ

When asked how was it working incredibly up close and very personal with Jennifer Lopez in the thriller “The Boy Next Door”?

Ryan’s response… “It was fun, I’ll tell ya that!  Uh…it was a lot of fun!”  (…insert lots of giggling from Ryan here) 😉

A former collegiate baseball player, professional mix martial arts fighter, model and now actor – Ryan’s acting career has most definitely been on a fast track.

We’ll be seeing much more of Ryan Guzman and I’m looking forward to it!

Who’s Gonna Win the Million??


America’s Got Talent 2015 -Finale TONIGHT!!

Of all the reality ‘talent’ shows, AGT is one of my favorites.  The variety of performances is always entertaining – but it’s the backstory of each performer that draws me in.

I spoke with 5 of tonight’s finalist and I’m rooting for each and everyone one of them!

Who would you like to see win?
