In the days leading up to The Big Jingle airing Wednesday December 12 at 9E/6P we’ll be giving you exclusive behind the scenes coverage thanks to our Big Jingle Kik Correspondent, Denique LeBlanc! Here’s his day one experience:
When I woke up, I had to make sure I wasn’t dreaming… I opened the window curtains and there it was; the city of Toronto. I finally made it! We walked in the cold to the MuchMusic headquarters and met up with some of the digital team members. They were so fab!
After getting a tour of Much, I was thrown into a room with the VJs to rehearse my lines for The Wanted introduction. It was very unplanned but let’s be honest, that’s what I am all about. And hey, I’ve always wanted to be a TV personality so you have to start somewhere, right?
After the quick rehearsal, I was lucky enough to film a live hit in the NML studio with VJ 2.0 winner Liz Trinnear, talking about The Big Jingle 2012. With festive spirits, Liz and I worked those camera angles and had a blast!
Finally, I got the chance to take some rad photos and learn what truly goes on behind the scenes of MuchMusic… what else could someone want for Christmas?
@martini084 Thanks!! We're only as young as we feel, right!?
@dinealonemusic Everybody's guessing #1...what's your guess for #100?
@TheJeremyFisher Aw, shucks. We're big fans of yours too! When it comes to stop-motion, puppets and bicycle tours, nobody beats Mr. Fisher.
@RealTeenRescuer BDAY TWINZZZ
@TheFamousLM Just one? ;)
Our actual b-day is tomorrow, but today is our gift to you...the '100 Greatest Videos Ever' countdown starts at 11AM ET! 🎉🎶🎈🎁
@Gentle_atheist 1/2 of our schedule is still music.
@FearlesslyJulii You just might be in the "30 Years of Much" special tomorrow 9E/6P...hint hint.
@JuliaMXx SO many Much employees also have VHS copies of their favourite I&I specials. Even though we don't have VCRs anymore.
