Brad Paisley performs 'Nobody's Fool' from the 'Cars 2' soundtrack on 'Good Morning America'With two songs on the 'Cars 2' soundtrack, Brad Paisley could be opening up a whole new, younger audience for himself. That was certainly the case Friday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), when Paisley performed his song 'Nobody's Fool' for a crowd that included a four-year-old lifelong fan.

Anchor Robin Roberts was interviewing Paisley, who was named CMA Entertainer of the Year and will co-host the awards with Carrie Underwood in November, and asked him what his favorite song to perform was. "Anything new that's a hit, anything that's brand new, because you haven't worn it out and you're still experimenting with it," said Paisley, noting he was learning in front of the fans.

Roberts pointed to the boy in the crowd, who was hoisted on his father's shoulders, and suggested Paisley use him as inspiration. The father said it was his son's fourth birthday, and that Paisley had been his favorite "ever since he was two" years old. "His whole life," Paisley said. It doesn't get too much more brand new than that.

Alicia Keys on 'Good Morning America'Alicia Keys sounded an optimistic note Tuesday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Keys has every reason to be feeling good: she just released a reissue of her debut album, 'Songs In A Minor,' to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Keys is happily married, the mother of an 8-month-old son, and she's spreading her wings as a producer on Broadway with a play called 'Stick Fly.'

'GMA' host Robin Roberts asked Keys if all of that makes it into the music somehow. "That's what also the tenth anniversary is about, you know, the future," she said. "It's about celebrating where I've come from so we can really continue to go on into the future. Because it's going to be an incredible future."

Keys also performed her love letter to her home town, 'Empire State of Mind (Part II),' as the cabs and people passed behind her in Times Square. It made a perfect setting for a song about the city.

Five-Year-Old YouTube Makeup Expert Makes Over 'GMA' Ladies

Five-year-old makeup guru Madison Hohrine on 'Good Morning America'Should a five-year-old be giving advice on anything? If it's YouTube sensation Madison Hohrine, whose makeup tutorials have garnered over a million views, quite possibly. Wednesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Bianna Golodryga and Robin Roberts got some tips on makeup from Madison.

Madison thought both of them looked pretty, but said that Roberts could use blush on her cheeks. Golodryga also needed some blush, and also some pink lipstick and purple eye shadow. "Clearly I needed a lot more help than you did," joked Golodryga, addressing Roberts. "I love when someone says, 'You're pretty, but...'" said Roberts.

For the record, Madison's mom has stated in the notes of at least one of her YouTube videos that she doesn't let Madison wear makeup, and that mom lets Madison borrow her makeup -- Madison has none of her own. That is, until the sponsors start calling ...

Lara Spencer Tries Out for Cirque du Soleil on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

Lara Spencer tries out for Cirque du Soleil on 'Good Morning America'Cirque du Soleil doesn't just take anyone off the street who can do strange, bendy things in the air. It takes a lot of time, hard work and dedication, as Lara Spencer found out Tuesday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Spencer put herself through aerial training and took a spin on the "Wheel of Death" with the cast of 'Zarkana,' Cirque du Soleil's new show in New York City.

"It's one thing to play dress-up in the Cirque performer's clothing," said Spencer. "It's quite another to walk in their shoes." Spencer had a little trouble with a spinning-hoop stunt. "Even barely moving, I'm dizzy and dazzled by the difficulty of this trick." She did a bit better with a wire-aided backflip.

The main stunt was the aforementioned "Wheel of Death," which looks like two hamster wheels spinning on an axle suspended above the stage. Spencer went three rounds with that but didn't like it one bit. If they need another woman for the show, Spencer thinks Robin Roberts would do nicely.

George Stephanopoulos and Robin Roberts of 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC) used an obscure word when squaring off against teenage Scrabble champions in a lightning round of the word game this morning.

Stephanopoulos and Roberts spell out "waker," which is a legitimate word, but nevertheless seems a bit of a stretch. "Someone who wakes someone up," Stephanopoulos said, by way of explanation. Okay, okay. You win.

Raquel Welch lets loose with a vulgar word while discussing what it takes for women to be successful in a man's world on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC.)

Welch argues that it's possible for women to be assertive without being aggressive, and that those who are the latter run the risk of being labeled a "b-tch." To be fair, the word that Welch uses really isn't that bad, but both she and Robin Roberts react like it is.

Why Was the Tiger Woods Speech Treated Like a Presidential Address?

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 19th 2010 12:41PM
Tiger Woods speechIf you're looking for analysis of the Great Tiger Woods Apology of 2010, you've come to the wrong place. Our friends at TMZ, PopEater, and Fanhouse will have it all broken down from a personality, gossip, and sports perspective. No, what I'm here to talk about is the TV aspect of the coverage, and all I have to say about it is... it's troubling.

Why? Think about what happened this morning: all four networks interrupted their regular programming to show the speech. There was pre- and post-speech analysis from sports reporters as well as the news folks. There was a podium and a blue curtain. If you didn't know that Tiger Woods was about to speak, you might have thought that President Obama was about to step out and address the nation. Instead, we got Tiger talking over and over about how he's failed himself, his wife, his friends and his family.

I'm not sure what made me feel dirtier: the fact that the networks made it seem like a presidential address, or that I was actually watching it. Video and more after the jump.

During his interview with Robin Roberts on '20/20,' R&B singer Chris Brown, who beat girlfriend Rihanna in February, said he wasn't aware of his anger management issues, forgot the crucial life lesson he learned while witnessing the alleged abuse of his mother by his stepfather and pointed out how his altercation with Rihanna has made him a changed man.

According to Brown, he was unaware of his inability to deal with anger, and never had domestic abuse problems before. "I never, ever had problems with anger," he said, "no domestic violence with any of my past."

Diane Sawyer Leaving 'Good Morning America' After This Week

by Leonard Jacobs, posted Dec 7th 2009 10:55AM

Now it's official: On this morning's broadcast of 'Good Morning America,' co-host Diane Sawyer confirmed what industry wags had predicted all along: she'll leave 'GMA' at the end of this week in preparation for taking over for Charles Gibson, who leaves 'World News' on Dec. 18.

Sawyer will begin anchoring 'World News' Dec. 21, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

With Sawyer's departure from 'GMA,' there's a seat on that program left to be filled -- and late last week we reported that George Stephanopoulos, ABC News' chief Washington correspondent and longtime host of the Sunday morning news program 'This Week', has been offered the gig, although no official word has been made.

If confirmed, this will also leave a hole in 'This Week' to be filled, perhaps by Robin Roberts, next year.
