[ Cheers and applause ] I saw the first episode — and, you know, I can sympathize with you.

>> Are you excited about the new album that just came out?

>> I am. It just debuted in the top ten today.

[ Cheers and applause ] So I’m, very, very excited.

>> Is there kind of a little competition between you and nick since yours came out during the same day?

>> You’re right on the information, they decided to push it back. There’s no competition, it’s all healthy.

>> All right. And how’s the marriage going, everything good, it’s stressful to be on TV, i know.

>> Yeah. It was a little stressful having the cameras with us for a bit. But we adjusted to it. We’re trying to learn from each other.

>> Oh, my goodness, that was terrific. You people are better than me. Great job, Emily. How do you think you did?

>> Good. Good.

>> It’s like — you get a lot of the same questions about your show and all that.

>> Well, i mean, that’s how the red carpet is. Everybody asks you the same questions, but she had a good way of wording them and — no, really you were relaxed.

>> Absolutely.

>> There’s always good to interview an artist relaxed or else it will make them nervous.

>> A good point. You guys vote at home, if you think she had stuff together. So vote for your red carpet correspondent at the VMAs tomorrow night. Will it be Emily, Aprell or Sara? Cast your vote today. Time for a quick break though. When we come back, we have Hilary Duff in the house. Where she is? She’s chillin’ somewhere, with Quddus. TRL VMA week continues after this.

>> Yeah, at a radio, actually.

>> I’m sure you heard her voice.

>> She’s from where I’m from.

>> Yeah.

>> From Burleson. We’re both from the same area, so that was weird.

>> Did you ever think of singing together. Imagine what that would sound like?

>> I know. That’s an — she’s an awesome vocalist.

>> Congratulations on your album become being in the top ten. We saw you perform last week.

>> I know. Always when I come to TRL the fans are so amazing. And when you sing its just makes you want to keep singing. I didn’t want to stop with one song, but it was great.
