GMA: Josh Groban Co-Anchor Interview
Singer Josh Groban was at the desk on GMA this morning and said he was really excited to be at the “big boy desk.” “As a singer, I’m always in the music section. I’m honored,” Josh Groban told the anchors.
The anchors reached back into their video vault to produce a video from 2001 from Ally McBeal, where Josh Groban danced with Callista Flockhart. Groban looked young and awkward in the video, with longer hair.
Josh Groban laughed at himself, dabbing his eyes with a tissue to wipe away fake tears. He said he must’ve been 21 or 22 at the time and said it was a great experience because he’d just been signed for his first record and had never done any TV before. He later learned he was 23 and prefaced it with, “This just in.”
