And they’ve arrived – safe and sound. Mega-Hotties Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough arrived quietly into Toronto last night, up and at ’em early for a hectic Press Day for their Romantic Thriller, Safe Haven. The Adaption of the best-selling Novel by Nicholas Sparks is set to open this Valentine’s Day via Entertainment One‘s Alliance Films in Canada. The Film centers on Katie (Hough), a Woman who arrives in Southport, North Carolina, falling in love with Widower (Duhamel), which forces her to confront her dark, mysterious past.
Duhamel and Hough who looked a picture-perfect Duo together, appeared at KISS 92.5‘s Roz & Mocha Show (listen here) earlier today, before stopping-off at City‘s Breakfast Television (watch here), before completing a morning Trifecta capped-off at CP24 Breakfast (watch here). The Actors will be doing an afternoon of Press out of their Hotel, before appearing on an action-packed New.Music.Live at MuchMusic, which also will see Warm Bodies Stars Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. A Star-filled Day in the City indeed.
I caught-up with the Stars as they arrived for their Breakfast Television appearance this morning and they both were gracious to Fans stopping to sign Autographs and snap Photos despite being in a crazy rush to their next destination. The Festivities continue at Scotiabank Theatre tonight where the Canadian Premiere of Safe Haven takes place, as Duhamel and Hough walk the Red Carpet. We’ll be there, so stay tuned for our Interview!
Season Eleven Winner of American Idol, Phillip Phillips arrived in Toronto a couple days ago to promote his debut Disc from Universal Music Canada, The World from the Other Side of the Moon. Up and at ’em early, Phillips had a busy Press Day yesterday which had him at MuchMusic for a taping and today he performed live on CityTV‘s Breakfast Television.
Phillips is making the most of his Visit to the City and tonight, Fans in the east end will have a chance to see him live as he appears at Pickering Town Centre at 5:30 PM for a Autograph Signing. The handsome 22-year-old will be meeting Fans who purchase a copy of his Disc at HMV.
In addition to touring with Adult Contemporary-Pop Veterans Matchbox Twenty next year, Phillips just released his new Single Gone, Gone, Gone.

Teen Hearthrob Austin Mahone just gained a whole lot of new Fans this weekend with an appearance at MuchMusic‘s first-ever The Jingle Bell at Air Canada Centre performing alongside Bridgit Medler (who we spotted yesterday), Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted, among others. Mahone, who not unlike Justin Bieber, gained popularity virally and in just one year after getting discovered online, he now is signed to Universal Republic in the U.S.
The 16-year-old just released his brand new Single today, Say You’re Just a Friend (ft. Flo Rida), sampling its Hook from Biz Markie‘s 1989 Hit Just a Friend/Freddie Scott‘s 1968 Hit You Got What I Need.
I spotted Mahone – whose growing legion of Fans are known as Mahomies – earlier today grabbing some Breakfast with his Mom and two Bodyguards, one who was super-nice to snap a Photo of us. His Mom, always looking-out reminded him to keep his Drink lower not to be in the Photo, but as always, Boys will be Boys!

Love this Girl! Just having released her Universal Music Canada debut Disc, My Name Is last month, Bridgit Mendler makes her third visit to the City in three months, practically calling Toronto a second home now. The multi-talented Actress/Singer flew-in late last night for an appearance today at MuchMusic‘s inaugural The Big Jingle – think Toronto’s version of New York’s annual Z100 Jingle Ball. The day-long Concert held at Air Canada Centre featured super-hot Talents like Carly Rae Jepsen, Cody Simpson, Austin Mahone and Headliners, The Wanted. It is said that the latter caused quite a ruckus among Fans waiting at their Yorkville Hotel earlier this evening, according to Fan reports.
I spotted a more-Brunette-than-before Mendler having some low-key fun with Friends, playing Board Games with her Friends in the south-end of the City. Still donning her Stage Makeup, but relaxed in a Hoodie, she was super-sweet to stop and do a Snap before quickly tending back to her Friends who were breaking-out in a little Jam Session when I saw them. Mendler soon will be taking a break from Music to begin her studies at the University of Southern California next Spring!

Perhaps known better for his Collaborations, brilliant Producer/Singer/Songwriter Calvin Harris is in Toronto after a stay in New York, here promoting his latest Disc 18 Months, from Sony Music Canada. The Album already has topped both the UK and Scottish Album Charts, seeing a release Stateside just last week.
The 28-year-old Scotsman exploded onto the Pop Music Scene internationally back in 2008 with Hits The Girls and Acceptable in the 80s and already is gaining heavy Airplay for his new Single Feel So Close, which has achieved triple-Platinum sales in Canada already. 18 Months pairs Harris with some outstanding Vocalists including Kelis, Ellie Goulding, Florence Welch (Florence & The Machine), Tinie Tempah, Ne-Yo and of course his international Smash Hit with Rihanna, We Found Love, is featured also.
