I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango: May 4-8

In late night, talk show, television, tv on 05/03/2009 at 3:30 pm

Mega-viral-flavour-of-the-moment U.K. singing sensation Susan Boyle, says Entertainment Weekly, was destined to be a star. Quebec singer Bernard Lachance might have a similar world-famous destiny, but he’s fought for every bit of exposure and success, and his efforts are being rewarded Tuesday when he is featured on Oprah in a segment taped last week and reported on here by Gazette reporters Max Harrold and Catherine Solyom.

“What can I say? Oprah is like a religion,” the singer told the Gazette on Saturday. The story is an amazing one. Let’s all tune in and hear Lachance experience his latest big moment.

It’s enough to make me feel inspired. Alternating with hopelessness. Check out the rest of the talk-show listings while I go out and get some Haagen Dazs.
