Springfield to sing at Daytime Emmys

NEW YORK (AP) — Rick Springfield will perform his '80s hit "Jesse's Girl" and other songs at the Daytime Emmy Awards later this month. [...]

Springfield, 56, returned to daytime TV last year to reprise his popular "General Hospital" character, Dr. Noah Drake, which he portrayed from 1981 to 1983.

Brian Frons, president of ABC Daytime, said this year's Daytime Emmys "will be a must-see television experience, and we are thrilled Rick will be opening the show."

"His performance will be sure to create an energy and frenzy that will make for a very entertaining evening," Frons said in a statement.

Energy! Frenzy! SPRINGFIELD!!

It's a shame I'll miss this.
