TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank) Take Over ‘The Arsenio Hall Show’


After an epic takeover by Prince, Arsenio Hall made up with his friends Tyrese, Ginuwine & Tank for having to cancel their last scheduled visit, and decided to make an event out of their return.

Well, it all went down Monday night when the gentlemen known as TGT returned to the show for a full-fledged takeover of their own! In a playful moment prior to hitting the stage, Arsenio made sure there would be no last minute changes this time by placing ankle monitors on the guys so they couldn’t leave without alerting security!

The R&B super trio kicked off the show performing a medley of “Take It Wrong” and “Weekend Love.” As the ladies in the audience were going crazy, they took a break from the stage to catch Arsenio up on what’s been going on since their last visit, upcoming tour plans, and speak about the breakup rumor. But it got real kinky when Arsenio opened up the Q&A to the female audience, who asked questions like, what music do they play when they’re ready to make a lady feel special? Who’s single and looking? and more.

To close out the show, Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank shut it down with an extra wild performance of “Next Time Around” and “Sex Never Felt Better.” As a special treat to the audience for an online exclusive, Ginuwine took everyone back performing his classic hit “Pony.”

This visit was not to miss, but if you did check out all the clips below!

Music’s biggest night is always preceded by another one of music’s biggest nights, The Recording Academy’s annual Pre-Grammy Gala. On the eve of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, music and Hollywood’s biggest stars joined Clive Davis for another memorable evening at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.

The four-hour event, which honored Universal Music Group chairman and CEO Lucian Grainge, boasted A-list performances and a star-studded guest list including Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Imagine Dragons, Ryan Tedder, Miguel, John Legend, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Barry Gordy and many more.

Davis led the crowd including Jamie Foxx, Miguel, and Swizz Beatz in singing “Happy Birthday” to Alicia Keys, who celebrated her 34th birthday Saturday.

Robin Thicke arrived with his beautiful wife Paula Patton and had the crowd on its feet with “Blurred Lines,” for which he was accompanied by Pharrell and a dancing T.I. The Neptunes producer kept a smile on the famous faces with his Oscar-nominated hit “Happy,” and joined Jennifer Hudson and Tip for “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel).”

R. Kelly paid tribute to Nelson Mandela with a tribal-inspired song, and Fantasia brought the epic evening to a close with her powerful performance of “Stormy Weather.”

Davis also remembered Whitney Houston, who died two years ago in the same hotel, “We all know that Whitney was the greatest contemporary singer in the world,” said the 81-year-old music mogul. “I don’t want the world to forget that, and I don’t want anyone in this room to forget that.”
