Today's program was about second chances and Anderson's guests were Paula Abdul; Morgan Freeman; and Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., winner of this year's America's Got Talent. Anderson opened the program explaining why he wanted to do the show and talking a bit about each of today's guests ~
First up was Paula. There was a video of Paula's career highlights, discussion of her time on American Idol, Simon Cowell and now The X-Factor. There was even a trip into the audience for questions and a chance for a long time fan to meet Paula. Here's a short clip of Anderson's interview with Paula that led to this ~
Anderson's reaction to hearing Paula telling him "you make me feel like I’m watching waves crash over candy-coated rocks...and dissipating"
Next we see a video of Morgan Freeman's career highlights before Morgan comes on stage to sit down with Anderson for a very interesting interview, including their past connection ~
After the break, Morgan was back to talk about his movie Dolphin Tale, currently in theaters ~
Last, but not least, after a video of his road to winning America's Got Talent, we meet Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. ~
After the break, Landau performs Frank Sinatra, I've Got You Under My Skin ~
Anderson enjoys listening to Landau sing and after the last break, thanks his guests for coming and closes today's show.
