Kathie Lee & Hoda Hit 500,000 Facebook Likes
It is an extra special Winesday Wednesday on the fourth hour of the Today Show. Both of the hosts started off the show in dog costumes to say thank you to the over 500,000 Facebook likes they have racked up.
If you are wondering why they were dressed up in dog costumes, it is because Kathie Lee was on her hands and knees begging and barking like a dog the other day trying to convince people to continue liking their Facebook page. They also revealed today that if they can reach one million Facebook likes, they will get out the dunk tank and let some celebrities dunk them.
I don’t think Hoda wants them to get one million likes though. She knows it will just end in a bad hair day.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Yoda Hoda On Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Last night, on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Hoda Kotb was on the show to do her Yoda impression after a Jimmy Kimmel fan wrote in to the show saying she loves Hoda and she loves Yoda and she wanted the two to be combined. Hoda came through during the show and did a pretty good Yoda impression.
Remember when the Today Show dressed up as Star Wars characters in 2009? That would be the same time that Yoda Hoda made her first appearance on television.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Justin Timberlake “SexyBack” As Barber Shop Quartet
It is Justin Timberlake week on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and yesterday they did a performance of Timberlake’s “SexyBack” as a barber shop quartet. It was actually a pretty good rendition of the song and both Kathie Lee and Hoda loved the song. Or it could have just been Justin Timberlake. Everything he does is cool even when it isn’t cool.
A little bit of trivia from Kathie Lee as well. She told Hoda she worked with Justin Timberlake on his first movie, Model Behavior.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: iPad vs Paper Commercial
Kathie Lee and Hoda checked out a pretty funny commercial called iPad vs paper. The commercial centers on a father who is trying to make his family go all digital. When his daughter does homework on paper, he tells her to use the iPad. When his wife leaves a Post-It note, he tells her to use the iPad. But when he ends up in the bathroom without any toilet paper and asks for help, his wife slides his iPad under the door.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Michael Pollock Plays Piano For Billy Joel
While sitting in the audience at a Q&A with Billy Joel at Vanderbilt University, student Michael Pollock got up enough courage to ask Billy Joel if he could perform with him. Surprisingly Billy Joel told him to get on stage. And even more surprisingly, Pollock is a master on the piano.
The two played “New York State of Mind” together and at the end of the performance, Billy Joel said not to forget the name Michael Pollock.
