Hosts Release Rivaling Musical Numbers (Video)Beloved NY1 anchor, new Williamsburg resident, and object of many a New Yorker’s cult fandom Pat Kiernan has now done multiple stints on Live, With Kelly! as one of the rotating guest hosts. His spots on the show have inspired a campaign to make him the full-time co-host of the show alongside Kelly Ripa. But he has competition. And he will address that competition ruthlessly.

Recently, former Jessica Simpson beau Nick Lachey—who has also done guest stints on Kelly! released a video of himself in the rapture of song, arguing his case for the job.

Not one to be shown up, Pat Kiernan teamed up with the Ice Theater of New York to submit his own entry: A take on Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” cleverly reworked for the lyrics “Sweet Kelly R.” This is one Canadian who will not go down without a fight (in song):

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
