ITV to air Audience With Donny and Marie Osmond

by Lisa McGarry


For the first time in many years, the Osmond duo will be appearing together in the UK in this hour-long special for ITV1, An Audience with Donny & Marie.

The musical extravaganza, hosted by Donny and Marie, will be based on their hugely successful Las Vegas stage show. They will be singing some old favourites and some new songs in front of a celebrity-packed audience.

In 1976, the pair had their first US hit variety show, Donny & Marie, where they performed songs such as I’m A Little Bit Country, I’m a Little Bit Rock and Roll. They have had huge success with top 10 hits such as I’m Leaving It All Up To You and Morning Side of the Mountain.

Donny and Marie say: “We are looking forward to bringing a bit of Las Vegas to the UK and performing some of our old favourites with some new surprises for our dedicated fans.”

Alongside the musical segments, Donny and Marie share some anecdotes from their showbiz background and stories from their personal lives.

Viewers will see Marie sing Paper Roses and Donny perform Puppy Love and the brother and sister duo even have a dance off to see who throws the best moves!

Donny is flattered when Linda Lusardi reveals she had posters of him plastered all over her walls when she was younger and shares with the audience the story of when Marie and her dad had a box delivered to their hotel room. Upon opening it, they discovered a girl who was trying to get to Donny. Their father was so impressed with her dedication that he took the girl to Donny’s room, where she proceeded to scream and then pass out!

Join in the music and laughter and share a fun hour in the company of two of the world’s most successful performers.
