February 8, 2015, 12:10.50 am ET
Yes I am a huge Chris brown fan!! And honestly he's an inspiration to me, one of the main things I've learned from him is that no matter how hard life gets, never give up. Throughout time we've seen him struggle but he was strong and he never gave up on making this incredible music. We all know how the media likes to point out the bad in people but Chris here is a great man, a talented one. I think he deserves to be on that stage and team breezy would love to see him perform. PLEASE get him there
February 7, 2015, 12:17.48 am ET
The Vamps are growing bigger and bigger every day and they are so talented I think that they shout have the chance to come and sing on the show. I could not come last year but this time I made it a commitment to come. Please put them on the show. I love them. His fans would be so happy to hear they are coming to New York again. Everyone would agree with me!
February 4, 2015, 10:07.05 am ET
These boys are so talented and they're fame is getting bigger by the second. Having them on the show again will be great to boost them up even more again! They are everything to me and I would love to make it this time because I couldn't come last year :( please make this happen
February 2, 2015, 9:54.21 pm ET
Shawn Mendes's career has had a great start, and I think all his fans would be so happy to see him, it would be good for Shawn and the Today Show

Shawn Mendes is a rising star and the 2015 teen heart throb😻 shawn is so talented and has great music!! He would also attract a huge crowd!!!! many girls probably will agree with me that they would want shawn mendes to come to the today show!!!😻😊
January 25, 2015, 2:45.15 pm ET

May 9, 2014, 12:31.38 pm ET
Why can't Today use their platform to showcase lesser known artists? Are the scared of rating drops? I hear these artists above everyday on the radio, I don't want to listen to the same songs over and over. But I guess it's all about that $$$, right?
May 8, 2014, 6:06.50 am ET
Why don't you have one direction or 5 seconds of summer
May 5, 2014, 7:15.42 am ET

5 Seconds of Summer are 4 hard working lads that came along way to make music and to please their fans. Their EP came to #1 on Itunes for most pre ordered. I think that the Today Show crew would be surprised by how many people would come to see the lads. I also think that it would mean the world to many fans,of theirs, to be able to see them on such a successful news channel. The boys have come a long way, and they would be honored to perform on the Today Show.
March 11, 2014, 6:12.57 pm ET
March 10, 2014, 8:45.53 pm ET
please bring 5 Seconds Of Summer to the Today Show. It would mean the world to be and my best friend. We are their biggest fans.

February 27, 2014, 8:32.26 pm ET
Please bring back 1D! Biggest fan since day 1 coming over from ireland hoping to see then again!!
February 24, 2014, 1:59.29 pm ET
Ironically, I'm not gonna beg for VIP tickets. I'll go if I want to hear the music. It's that simple. Do rather than beg.
February 21, 2014, 8:25.54 pm ET
It's my life goal to meet him. I've been trying to see him in concert for years but I've had no luck. It would mean the world to me. 💕💖💞😘
February 3, 2014, 12:08.24 pm ET
