Is David Ready for His Close-Up?


So, David is at the ALMA Awards, which we’ll get to see tomorrow night on ABC, 8 pm EST.  You can also catch it on Justin TV, which has a live stream of the ABC network.

Here’s hoping David does a fantabulous job with his performance.  It’s been quite a while since he’s had an on-stage performance (singing patriotic songs at sports events doesn’t count for me), so I hope he brings it and kills it.  Above all, let’s hope he shows what a Class Act he is.  Something sorely missing of late at award shows.  

I have no idea what song he plans to sing, but I just want his power vocals to soar, the way Alicia Keys tore it up on her VMA duet with Jay-Z on their hip-hop collaboration “Empire State of Mind.”  Yeah, as a proud New Yorker and Bronx native, I did kind of just download that baby on iTunes after it was over, mostly on the strength of Alicia’s vocals alone – fully understanding how Lil Mama got carried away.  That’s the strength of a performance.  Whatever David performs, I hope there’s a download of the song (and his vocals) available somewhere.  

High hopes, of course.
