Hey Los Angeles …

… the 1990s called–they want Michael Bolton AND Mario Lopez back. You’ll understand in a moment why this odd duo should be shoved back to the decade when Saturns were THE “It” car to have.

From Racked.LA.com:

Oh I hope you’re sitting down for this bit of news, and I hope your hair salon is closed for the day since after reading this, you’ll want to get a mullet.

Michael Bolton Joins Santa To Celebrate The Grove Tree Lighting

The Grove is gearing up for a big shopping season. The arrival of a 100-foot-tall Christmas tree at the end of October marked the beginning of the shopping center’s 10th annual holiday celebrations, which get an official kick off this Sunday, November 11th. It’s on that date that The Grove will light its tree with a huge party involving balladeer and Jack Sparrow imitator Michael Bolton.

The holiday show will begin at 7:30pm and will feature a “snowfall” and the sounds of Bolton plus Melanie Fiona, Colbie Caillat, DJ JibbJock, Scotty McCreery, Rickey Minor and His Band and Phillip Phillips. Santa will also make an appearance; Mario Lopez and his dimples will emcee. The ceremony will conclude with fireworks.

Now, if this Michael Bolton was performing, I’d deal with the surly LA crowds to watch.
