A warm coat, and Furtado's all set
TORONTO -- Victoria-raised pop star Nelly Furtado says she loves playing gigs on New Year's Eve -- even if it means having to freeze in icy climes, which will be the case Monday night when she takes the outdoor stage at Niagara Falls, Ont.
"It's fun and you get to be onstage and you get to serenade all the couples that are kissing at midnight. It's a great vantage point," she said in a recent interview, noting she was shopping for a coat that was warm enough for the gig.
Furtado plans to bring the party by singing a mix of new and old tunes from her five albums at Entertainment Tonight Canada's fourth annual New Year's Eve at Niagara Falls. The two-hour show, hosted by Cheryl Hickey and Matte Babel, starts at 10 p.m. on Global.
Other acts on the bill include electro-pop trio Dragonette and Vancouver rockers Hedley, Furtado's fellow Free the Children charity ambassadors.
Hedley lead singer Jacob Hoggard is known for pulling pranks and Furtado is bracing for a surprise of some sort.
"I'm sure his prank will be showing up with, like, no shirt on. Like, Niagara Falls in the freezing, sub-zero temperatures and somehow being able to sing, without a scarf on," she said.
"That's what rock stars do."
