Last night’s premiere of ‘The Voice’ on NBC featured Christina Aguilera encountering a former Mickey Mouse Club castmate, who auditioned on the program with a cover of ‘Trouble’ by Ray Lamontagne. Aguilera at first didn’t seem to recognize the singer even after he said his name, but eventually made her way backstage to catch up with the 36-year-old. After greeting Tony, his wife Rachel and son Liam, Aguilera confessed a secret from another Mickey Mouse Club member, Britney Spears. “I remember Britney had the biggest crush on you. She won’t mind me saying that,” Christina enthused, though it was apparent the wife wasn’t as excited to hear the revelation.

Tony Lucca checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@tonylucca) on Friday (July 31), talking about performing at The Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans with The Revivalists. ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ alum writes:
Played New Orleans last night and actually got a chance to walk around a bit before the show. the venue was too far from the French Quarter to walk, being that it was probably 95 degrees with about 70% humidity. as well, the Quarter is usually the only part of New Orleans I’m ever able to visit anyway. instead, I strolled through the warehouse district and came upon the Canal Street Historic District. I remember that this was where most of the reporting took place during Hurricane Katrina. I recalled the images of National Guard tanks rolling through the streets, military commanders shouting orders, troops with rifles at the ready. like so many, I was glued to the tube for the weeks that followed that horrible calamity. I still get worked up just thinking about the nightmare that was the Bush administration and just how blatant their disregard was for helping the people of Louisiana. here in Baton Rouge, my friend told me that they went from a city of 300,000 people to a city of 1,000,000 almost overnight. that’s unimaginable!
Tony Lucca held his ‘Shotgun’ CD release party at the Key Club in Hollywood, California on Monday (March 29). Pictures from shootingstaragency.com have since been removed.
