Good Morning America Summer 2014 Concert Series Lineup!

Good Morning America revealed their Summer Concert series lineup this morning! While we’re a little disappointed by the lack of boy bands and other Secret Fangirl favorites, it’s still a solid lineup. And we always love to see country artists in New York!

All shows are free and take place at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Just make sure to line up (early!) before the shows 7am start time to guarantee a space. Only the Jennifer Lopez and 50 Cent concerts will require an advance (free) ticket. Stay tuned for details. Unlike the Today Show concert series, there are no “fan passes” for GMA concerts. Attendees are encouraged to enter the park via the 72nd Street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6am, when the park opens to the public.

As we said in our Today Show Summer Concert announcement, what better way to start your day by than seeing your favorite artist before work/school etc?

Nick Carter & Jordan Knight Announce Joint Album & Tour, Nick & Knight!

As we’ve said before, Good Morning America gets all of the important fangirl announcements!  This morning, Nick Carter and Jordan Knight stopped by to drop huge news:  they recorded an album together, Nick & Knight, and are going on tour this fall!

The album will be released on September 2nd.  Pre-orders are up now at NickandKnight.com, and you’ll receive a digital download of their first single “Just The Two of Us” instantly!

We’ve seen collabs from within boybands before (such as Jordan Knight’s “Stingy” feat Donnie Wahlberg), but this is the first cross-boyband duo in history.  Since NKOTBSB was pretty much the greatest thing that has ever happened in the history of boybands, we are beyond thrilled for Nick & Knight!

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 2nd at 10am local time.  And don’t forget NKOTBSB are a close knit bunch – you never know who could stop by your show!  When we saw Jordan Knight in NYC, Donnie Wahlberg & Jonathan Knight stopped by.

Backstreet Boys Announce Summer 2014 North American Tour on GMA

We’re so glad we made the switch from The Today Show to Good Morning America recently – GMA seems to get all of the important fangirl announcements.  Like this morning, when Backstreet Boys revealed they will be heading back out on a North American tour this summer!   We were getting majorly concerned that it was already March and we had no boyband tours to look forward to this year (We even made a list of forgotten bands who could reunite) so we are so excited that Backstreet’s Back in 2014!  This will be their second North American tour since Kevin Richardson rejoined the group last year, just in time for BSB’s 20th Anniversary.   Avril Lavigne will be joining the tour as well, so get ready for a night of early 2000s nostalgia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 21st 2014 at 10am local time.  Be sure to visit BackstreetBoys.com for info about fan club pre-sales, VIP packages, upgrades and after parties!

Join the Hunter Hayes 24-Hour Road Race To End Child Hunger

Just a day after Hunter Hayes revealed the May 6th release date for his new album, “Storyline,” he announced he’ll be having a 24-hour concert marathon to celebrate!

On May 9th and 10th 2014, Hunter will be playing 10 shows in 24-hours, in an attempt to break into the Guinness Book of World Records for most concerts played in a day!   Even better, the shows are all taking place in the country-music deprived Northeast!   That’s right NYC:  after rocking a sold-out show at Webster Hall last year in celebration of the release of “Encore,” and drawing a huge crowd a few days later at Good Morning America, Hunter is FINALLY back in New York!   He’ll be hitting venues all over the tri-state area, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

The 24-Hour Road Race appropriately kicks off with an appearance on Good Morning America, and wraps up in Philadelphia the next morning. We’ve never been to a concert that started at 2am before, but this sounds like a fun way to see Hunter and be a part of his history making celebration!  Regular admission tickets on sale now are just $10!

James Maslow and Cody Simpson Join Dancing With the Stars Season 18

As we’ve said before, we generally stay away from reality TV shows.  Unless of course they star a current or former boy band member.  In which case, we are ALL IN.

We’d been expecting Cody Simpson to join the cast of Dancing With the Stars, since he kindly asked his fans if they thought it would be a good idea back in December.

Cody Simpson DWTS offer tweets

But we had no idea that one of our favorite boy band members, James Maslow of Big Time Rush, would be joining the cast this season.  He was so good at keeping it secret we literally screamed when it was announced on Good Morning America this morning!!

Watch the announcement clip below.

We haven’t been invested in DWTS since the season of Lance Bass and Cody Linley, but you can bet we will be tuning in and voting for James every week.  (And Cody.  But mostly James).  We can’t wait for his dance moves, the glittery costumes he’ll have to wear, and of course the infamous James Maslow sass.  We’re hoping James will be around for a while, so apologies in advance for all of the vote spamming we’ll be doing.

Also joining the cast?  Winnie Cooper and DJ Tanner!

The 18th season of Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 17th at 8pm on ABC.

Tim Tebow Premieres T-Mobile Superbowl Commercial

Not to be un-American or anything, but we fully admit we have absolutely zero interest in football.  Superbowl weekend?  Nope.  For us it is Davis Cup Weekend (Go USA!) and new Zac Efron movie weekend.   We also had absolutely zero interest in Tim Tebow, that is until one of us saw him getting breakfast one morning at Sarabeth’s and realized just how good looking he is. (trust us, TV/photos don’t do him justice.)
So we were thrilled that our one and only football crush co-hosted Good Morning America today, rocking a plaid suit!  (AND Austin Mahone performed!!!  Morning TV doesn’t get much better)

He also premiered his new commercial with T-Mobile, in which Tim tells us all the things he’s been able to do without a contract, like “save puppies.”
The commercial will air during that Super Bowl thing on Sunday, or if like us, you already have tickets to see “That Awkward Moment,” you can watch them below via T-Mobile’s youtube.
