    Points of Light Gala TV ad

    They had a TV ad for the Points of Light Gala at the Kennedy Center and they showed Carrie singing Instant Karma and then her song was in the background for the rest of the commercial so I guess she made the cut for the show!

    Cant wait to watch it. There are so many Carrie things/events/music that we are anticipating to watch see and listen. Imagine just 2 months ago we felt so down and frustrated and how things have changed now. Life is sure like a wheel and we are on top with excitement right now. It is a good feeling. Carrie is truly an inspiration to us carriefans.

    Some fans on here were concerned since the taping was two hours and the show to be aired is only
    one hour that some part of it has to be left out and were worried about Carrie's performance and
    speech making the show.

    I just hope this doesn't get preempted -- I thought I saw something that the president is going to have speech broadcast to the nation on Monday evening! But don't quote me on this -- it was some defense place or something!

    Yes I remember that but I also got the impression, based on press releases for this event, that Carrie was on the A-list for this event and from what I could see was getting as much if not more ad time for the event than Garth Brooks...so it never entered my mind that her performance and /or speech would be cut ...but given the time constraints I can see how some might come to that conclusion and it might happen for more than 1 person, but that that might happen to Carrie...never, never crossed my mind.

    I heard the same thing. I hope it is not preempted.

    Wouldn't earn points for Obama - Current president preempting a program honoring one president with three others in attendance?

    The presidential address is scheduled for 7:30 PM ET. The Points of Light special is at 8:00 PM ET. So as long as the address is less than 30 minutes (which I think it will be), it won't affect the primetime TV schedule.

    Ad in the fact that he would be talking about the "kinetic military action" aka:war in Libya that seemingly has no leader except the FRENCH (which IMO is so freaking ironic and odd that we could preempt 3 hours of TV programing and still not figure that one out) AND that he already preempted AI a couple of times. And isn't Dancing with the Stars back on about then too?

    Thanks y'all for reminding me of this - I had forgotten to set my DVR! With all my daughters wedding plans, other daughters cheer competitions and the other daughters dance competitions I have fallen behind on my Carrie obsession (as my family calls it!)

    Ummm Cary...? You HAVE seen our president speak before right? His "let me be clear"s and "let me just say"s and "umms - aa's" usually take that long. But as I am assuming those times posted are EST and not MST I believe I will be in the clear because even Obama can not run over that long.

    Normally presidential addresses are scheduled in primetime. But this one is scheduled in the half-hour prior to primetime. Since Obama along with all the other living presidents are actually a part of the Points of Light special, it is certainly possible that the air time of the speech was specifically picked to avoid a schedule conflict with the special.
