We're not worthy of the best Halloween costumes from 'Today,' 'GMA'

In a move of synergy that suggests Jack Donaghy is still hanging around 30 Rockefeller Plaza, The Today Show anchors dressed in their Saturday Night Live best for this year’s Halloween episode. The results were eerily accurate at times, but that may have something to do with the crew probably having access to Studio 8H’s wardrobe department.

Nick Cannon talks whiteface controversy on 'Good Morning America'

Nick Cannon stirred things up on Instagram last week by posing for photos in which he wore skin-lightening makeup. Captions for the photos indicated that Cannon was playing a white character called “Connor Smallnut.”

Cannon went on Good Morning America this morning to talk about the stunt, which he did to promote his upcoming album — his first in over 10 years — which is titled White People Party Music.

“It was one of those things, obviously, even when naming my album title and doing the character, I knew it would spark some controversy,” Cannon said. “But I feel like it’s a conversation that’s needed because we all have differences, we embrace it.”

'Les Miserables': New Broadway cast performs on 'GMA,' and we should all pay attention

It’s been a hot French minute since we last talked about Les Misérables. One of the longest-running and most cherished Broadway musicals of all time was back in the spotlight in late 2012 with a buzzy, big-budget movie adaptation, packed with singing celebrities (and Russell Crowe) and enough close-ups to make even Norma Desmond cringe. To say that theater fans were divided on the final product would be a heavy understatement.

That’s all water under the Pulteney Bridge, though, because Les Miserables is back — and what’s more important is that it’s safely returned to the hands of real musical theater performers who promise to return the beloved title to its former glory.

The cast of the second Broadway revival (which opens March 23) took to Good Morning America to offer a little taste of the newly reimagined production, performing the Act 1 counterpoint extravaganza “One Day More.” Watch the performance below (and keep in mind that it was 9 in the morning), then find out who you’ll be geeking out over in the coming months.

Lea Michele talks past year: 'I couldn’t have done it' without friends -- VIDEO

Lea Michele is ready to take her victory lap.

After years on Glee, Michele’s debut album Louder dropped this week. The actress/singer spoke with Good Morning America Wednesday about her professional triumph — and her recently turbulent personal life. (Michele’s onscreen and offscreen boyfriend Cory Monteith passed away in July.)

George Stephanopoulos didn’t waste any time, asking right off the bat how Michele’s been doing over the past few months. “I’m really very, very, very thankful for all the amazing people I have in my life,” the 27-year-old replied. “I know that sounds like something everyone says, but honestly, my friends and my family, they got me through this and really, really have been there for me and I couldn’t have done it without them.” READ FULL STORY

Chelsea Handler: 'I'm not racist. I date a lot of black people' -- VIDEO

Despite what her Oscar tweets may have indicated, Chelsea Handler is emphatically not a racist — at least, according to Chelsea Handler.

“People are mad at me all the time. If I was worried about that, then I would be spending a lot of time online. I’d rather be a little bit more productive,” she explained to George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Tuesday, after he brought up her controversial Academy Award-night comments — including this message about Sunday’s Best Supporting Actress winner: “#AngelinaJolie just filed adoption papers #lupitanyongo #Oscars -@chelseahandler.”

Okay, cool! Thanks for clearing that up, Chelsea. This would be the perfect time to change the subject. Right? Right?

Yeah, no. “I’m not racist,” the comedian continued, laughing as though the very idea were utterly ludicrous. “I date a lot of black people, so that would be a difficult thing to explain to them.” Palm, meet face.

Disney’s Frozen has become such a sensation that the question isn’t have you heard the Oscar-nominated song “Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen, but how many times have you heard it today?

Well, it’s about to be at least one more! Good Morning America hosted an epic sing-along event Wednesday morning that spanned across New York City and the country with the addition of videos submitted by fans. Just a couple of days before performing the song at the Oscars, Idina Menzel kicked off the song along with her castmates for the new Broadway musical If/Then, which starts previews next week. From fancy figure skaters to glowing gospel choirs, everyone seems to be able to channel their inner-Elsa pretty well. Even Kelly Ripa, Michael Strahan, Jack Hanna and the casts of Newsies and Avenue Q lend their vocal support.

Amanda Knox reacts to new guilty verdict on 'GMA' -- VIDEO

Amanda Knox appeared on Good Morning America Friday to speak with anchor Robin Roberts about her recent conviction.

Yesterday, Knox was found guilty of murder and sentenced to more than 28 years in prison for the 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher. Knox, now 26, spent four years in an Italian prison before she was freed by an appeal. Italy’s supreme court then ordered a re-trial, and that’s when Knox was found guilty by an appeals court.

Knox told Roberts that she was with her family when she found out the latest verdict.”I’m going through waves of emotion in response to it,” Knox said. “My first reaction was, ‘no, this is wrong, and I’m going to do everything I can to prove that it is.'”

Raffaele Sollecito, Knox’s former boyfriend who is still in Italy, was also found guilty yesterday. “I don’t know what I would do if they imprisoned him,” Knox said. “It’s maddening.”

Knox’s voice quivered at points in the interview as she discussed the possibility of imprisonment and her sympathy for Kercher’s family.

“I feel like the only way that any of us can get any of sort of acknowledgement and understanding and consolation is through understanding,” Knox said in the interview’s conclusion. “I understand that this is really difficult, and I can only testify to what happened to me, and hope that people believe me. But I think the answers are out there.”
