★ NEW HALLOWEEN SONG FROM THE GHOST OF I, KANDEE!!
Last season we mourned the loss of this beloved “teen pop sensation” and the middle-aged entertainer. Yesterday I was visited by his ghost that informed me that, he misses you guys so much that even death can’t stop him from performing for you! If you know him, you know this will be special. Not to mention a miracle!
★ HALLOWEEN THEREMIN SET BY STEPHEN HAMM!!
What’s creepier then the sound of a theremin? NOTHING! We welcome back Stephen Hamm for an exclusively halloween theremin set!!
★ SPECIAL HALLOWEEN COMEDY BIT FROM AARON READ!

★ OUR FIRST EVER REAL WEDDING ON TALENT TIME!!!
The bitcoin Buddha and president of Talent People Productions, Christopher Filiatrault and his lovely partner Glenda are getting married, halloween style live on the show!! We have some surprises planned for them. Knowing that their family will have to sit through the entire show before seeing them get married makes me very happy. It will be fun!
