We are eternally grateful to the Archive of American Television and the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences for letting us be there on their behalf. This week we will be posting some of our favorite clips from our time hanging with the stars.
One of our biggest surprise moments of the day occurred when The X Factor's Paula Abdul came over to chat with us. We asked her who influenced her career and were thrilled to hear her mentor was one of our favorite performers of all time — Gene Kelly. She also gave a nod to James L. Brooks and The Tracey Ullman Show.
Watch Paula Abdul on the Emmy Red Carpet:
