Tomorrow is the 4th of July, and if you’re a true reality TV fan, you’ll be supplementing your picnics, BBQs and parades with a little PBS time! Why? Well, three reality TV favorites will be featured on A Capitol Fourth: American Idol champion Phillip Phillips, The Voice winner Javier Colon, and last but not least, Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron! Keep reading to find out why Bergeron agreed to host A Capitol Fourth.
Are you excited for PBS’ A Capitol Fourth? You should be! Some of the finest musicians in the nation will be performing on the National Mall. The exclusive lineup includes American Idol winner Phillip Phillips (in his first public performance since the big surgery, to boot), The Voice champ Javier Colon, country singer Josh Turner and Glee star Amber Riley. If, by some chance, you aren’t a fan of any of these musicians (shame on you!) you’ll still want to tune in solely for the opportunity to see Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron.
Bergeron is thrilled to be moving his hosting talents to PBS for a day. He explained to USA Today why he was so eager to take on the job: ”It’s a unique event. The opportunity to be the host, on live TV, for the nation’s biggest birthday party was just too good to pass up.” Bergeron then reflected on past Independence Day celebrations, commenting fondly on the joy he felt during family gatherings. This love of family is the main reason why he’s “really looking forward to the spectacle of this massive birthday party, this massive family gathering in Washington.”
Check out Tom Bergeron and his fellow reality stars tomorrow at 8 pm EST. As Bergeron says, “it’s going to be quite a night.”
