Since it’s been years since we had the NBC Today Show at midnight (yes we still remember it), it’s easy to forget the show still airs on Seven in the wee hours of the morning.
It airs at 4am -5:30am in an edited version.
And with that awkward time comes lost opportunities to see some live musical performances in their famed Today Show concert series.
Recent guests have included Mariah Carey, Sean Kingston, Miley Cyrus, Natasha Bedingfield, Kings of Leon, Katy Perry, All-American Rejects, Rob Thomas, Jonas Brothers, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, Adam Lambert, Fall Out Boy, Jennifer Hudson, New Kids on the Block and No Doubt.

Some TV Tonight readers have suggested the show would be welcome back to its late night slot on 7TWO, in place of AFL matches. They would surely attract a bigger following in Sydney and Brisbane, not to mention their pull when big international news breaks.
