Donny Osmond shuts down GMB host as fans slam embarrassing interview

GMB's Ed Balls tries to sing with Donny Osmond

Donny Osmond awkwardly shut down Good Morning Britain host Ed Balls as he tried to sing with him on Wednesday.

The 65-year-old who found fame as a teen star in family band The Osmonds joined the ITV show via video to promote bringing his Vegas show to the UK.

The singer was in full party mode as he kept breaking into song and Ed couldn’t help but try to join in.

Referencing an Osmonds classic, Ed invited Donny to duet with him as he pleaded: “Give me this moment: Love me for a reason…”

Instead of continuing the song though, Donny put his hand up to Ed and replied: “Let me sing it, OK?”

Charlotte burst out laughing as she commented: “Yeah! He’s like, ‘leave it to me.’

“Stop singing! We want to hear it from Donny! You take it away.”

Donny went on to sing the chorus of the popular tune himself before adding: “It’s going to be such a moment singing that with my brothers.”

“Beautiful,” Charlotte agreed, adding: “Honestly, it’s been so great to talk to you this morning.

“Thank you for talking to us, have a wonderful time on the tour.”
