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 two experience:
So by this point, my mind was able to process that I wasn’t in Fall River and that I was indeed in the big Canadian city of Toronto. Who would of thought I’d land this crazy gig? I certainly didn’t.
Today was my Big Jingle outfit/sound check day! I hopped in the subway towards Value Village on Bloor and I was lucky enough to find the ONLY pair of plaid pants in the entire store. After spending a grand total of $5.99, I headed to the Eaton Centre to complete the outfit with a great chocolate brown shirt from TopMan.
Once back at the hotel, I gathered my media gear and set off to the Air Canada Centre for the Big Jingle soundcheck. Wow, was I dreaming? I mean, let’s be honest; there are so many people who would have loved to be in my spot. With that in mind, I made sure to soak in every moment as it came.
I filmed backstage footage with the MuchMusic digital team and even saw Cody Simpson, Shawn Desman and walked by Tom Parker, from the Wanted, while he was on the phone! Can anyone say st-st-st-starstruck?
It was the last time I could get rest, so I rushed back to my hotel, closed the window curtains, crawled into bed and bam… I was out like the light.
