63rd Emmy Awards — In Memoriam

This past Sunday, the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards was on. I was watching the show and switching back and forth with other shows I was watching in TV. One part I missed was the  In Memoriam part of the show. I thought that portion of the show was always a touching tribute to the stars that have passed away. I was able to find the video on YouTube (thank you YouTube)!

This year’s In Memoriam, the group The Canadian Tenors performed “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen. It was one of the best cover of the song that I have ever heard.

A clip tribute to TV personalities was show along with The Canadian Tenors playing the song Halleluyah. In onder of apparence: Cliff Robertson, Elizabeth Taylor, Anne Francis, James MacArthur, Peter Falk, Harold Gould, Stanley Frazen (editor), James Arness, Janet Maclachlan, Madelyn Pugh Davis (writer), Steve Landesberg, Blake Edwards (creator), Betty Garrett, John Cossette (producer), Bill Erwin, Barbara Billinsgley, Leslie Nielsen, Tom Bosley, Reza Badiyi (director), Leonard Stern (director), Ryan Dunn, Denise Cramsey (producer), Frank Potenza, Bob Banner (producer), Andy Whitfield, Fred Steiner (composer), Jill Clayburgh, John Dye, Jack LaLanne, Al Masini (director), Sada Thompson, Laura Ziskin (producer), Don Mederith, Sherwood Schwartz (creator), Bubba Smith and Stephen J.

I had never heard of the The Canadian Tenors (Official site), but after I heard them sing, I Googled them to find out more about them.

The Canadian Tenors are a vocal quartet (originally a vocal trio) consisting of Remigio Pereira, Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters, and Clifton Murray. (From Wikipedia)

Now I am on a mission to get some of their music for my iPod.



DWTS — My Recap

Well, the first show of Dancing with the Stars — Season 13  just ended. It was a pretty good show. Everyone looked like the were having fun dancing. Not too sure about those stars that the teams have to go up to to get their scores. I might just watch the show to see if anyone falls on the stairs. Just kidding… a little!!

Here is my 2 cents:

Top Teams (May not have been the best pair, but they were pretty entertaining):

Whoa, they may need to be the first to go home:

WOW — where did he come from?: Tristan MacManus — I love his accent and he’s not to shabby to look at!!


Here is the 411 when I Googled Tristan MacManus:

Tristan MacManus (Dancer) Tristan began dancing in Dublin, Ireland before moving on to develop his passion for dance in The U.K, Sweden, Italy, USA and Australia. He was heavily involved in competitive dancing, where he won numerous titles and had the honor of representing his country across the globe. At the age of 18 he realised that theatre work was what he loved most and began singing and acting in theatre productions throughout Ireland. From there he joined the UK tour of Simply Ballroom and then onto Las Vegas. This led to him travelling to Australia to BURN THE FLOOR, Floorplay. He took a year out to teach in Boston, U.S. After another tour with BURN THE FLOOR he was offered Dance Captain in the West End production of Dirty Dancing, where he also understudied the principle “Robbie”. He is delighted to be coming to Queensland for the first time.
