World Wide Exclusive - Two Hours Late

I was recently at a dance party in Burbank (a.k.a. a taping of The Ellen Degeneres Show). This was the show where Mrs. Mariah Carey-Cannon made her first public appearance. In true Diva fashion, when the show started, there was no sign of Mariah. It was lots off fun watching how creative the show staff were at dynamically re-ordering the show. They were able to make the situation into a fun time (full studio audience and no guest could be a bit stressful!). They re-arranged the order and even taped a segment for next week (Hilary Duff). Ellen had to change into different clothes for the segment for next weeks broadcast. That turned into a bonus for us - an extra long and enthusiastic audience dance competition. Everyone was having so much fun - we didn't notice that Ellen had returned and was sitting in her chair enjoying 'our' show! A fellow near me did a flip down the stair at one of the cameras - and then a head spin right on the stairs. Ellen stood up and clapped for him! Periodically during the show they would cut to the camera at the front gate scanning for Mariah. It was worth the wait. Beyond, just enjoying the contrast in style and personality between these two woman - my favourite part was watching Mariah's entourage dash out at each commercial break and primp and fuss through the entire break.

The musical guests were a very cool, all vocal band called Naturally 7. They use no instruments - everything is their voices. Check out one of their videos here on YouTube.
