Reba Named Guest Announcer of Neil Patrick Harris’s ‘Best Time Ever’
Reba McEntire will appear on Neil Patrick Harris’ Best Time Ever on Tuesday, October 20th, as the show’s newest celebrity guest announcer.
The prime-time series, which features Harris and his guests in a variety of comedy skits, stunts, pranks, musical performances and audience giveaways, airs live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET. Reba joins a list of weekly guests whose names include Reese Witherspoon, Alec Baldwin, Shaquille O’Neal and Jack Black.
As fans of the show know, the guest announcer frequently does far more than just announce. During this week’s episode, Black brought the show to a close with a circus-worthy performance of Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild,” surrounded by acrobats and fire-breathing dancers. Reba could wrap up the show with a song of her own, or take part in a number of other sketches.
Next week’s musical guest for the recurring “Singalong Live” segment will be Omi, who will perform his Number One pop hit “Cheerleader.”
Reba has extended her run of shows in Las Vegas with Brooks & Dunn into May 2016, with six additional shows announced earlier this week. Reba and Brooks & Dunn opened their ongoing residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in June, ending Brooks and Dunn’s five-year hiatus in the process.
Meanwhile, “Until They Don’t Love You” — Reba’s current single from Love Somebody — is in its eighth week on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
