    what is this show going to be about? i dont get it. i personally dont care who hosts.

  • ben

    No problem with Nick being the host but enough of the HSM stuff already. It’s getting old, boring and what one might term….”DISNEY OVERKILL”.

  • Jennifer W

    i think its cool nick will be hosting the show. I really like Nick so its good he will be doing the show.

  • megan

    When i saw you said he was 38 i was like :O cos i didn’t think he was but I looked i up and it said he was born November 9, 1973 which would make him 34 not 38. But its cool.

    Sounds intresting I like Nick Lachey.

  • ….

    I was about to say…38?! Thanks for clarifying poster above LOL

  • michelle

    Eh seems ok. Kinda weird but I’ll watch because I’m a fan of HSM.

  • lovethekid

    :D
    i’m going to the long beach auditions. i have no clue what it’s about but if you make it on the show, i heard the real hsm cast will make appereances (sp?) and that’s a chance to meet zac!

    I guess its cool Nick will be hosting. I’m sure the show will do will no matter who hosts it, because of its popularity.

    I think Nick will be good as a host. He hosted the tree lighting ceremony in Rockafeller Center last year. His new album is coming out some time this summer. I wonder if it will drop around the same time the show starts which is July 20th. They’ve been leaking samples for a single so that should be out soon.

    I don’t think he will be able to take vacation from being on vacation with his lovely lady Vanillo.

    Isn’t that his current employment?

  • rolling eyes

    Doesn’t he know how to play with people his own age,

    or at least do a job that makes him look like an adult. This guy is so desperate to stay in the lime light, next he’ll be hosting….LOL never mind im not gonna go there…LOL

  • someone

    couldn’t he find better work than this?

    He’s ugly!

  • lj

    I think he was chosen partly because he went to a performing arts high school. That might have something to do with it. He’s producing a show about his high school for MTV.

    I don’t really care who hosts! I love HSM but it’s getting too far. They are killing it!!!! They have HSM EVERYTHING! Well except for maybe like toilet paper but that’s besides the point! Can’t they give it a rest! I hear they are making an HSM4! They aren’t even done with HSM3 and they’re already writing a script for a # 4! What the hell is it going to be?!? College musical?!?! OVER KILL!!!!!!!!!!!

    im a big fan of HSM. I run a fan club called HSM2-World (click name to visit the website) But because of the 4th HSm being made, i think its going a bit over the top a bit. It might start getting boring and probz most of the cast won’t do the 4th one!
