  • Degrassi Video Yearbook: Adamo Ruggiero and Lauren Collins

    Posted on 11/23/2011 by Lisa

    Adamo Ruggiero (who played Marco on Degrassi) and Lauren Collins (who played Paige) put together a mix of Degrassi episodes featuring iconic fashion.

    Here's Part 1 of their introduction:

    Watch Part 2, and all the full episodes they mention, in Adamo and Lauren's Degrassi Video Yearbook.

    Isn't it great to see them hanging out together again? I miss Marco and Paige. I dug through some old photos and found this shot of both characters (and Manny!) during one of those iconic fashion moments.

    Paige loses her temper, and Manny loses her dress.

  • Hey, remember Queen Bees?

    Posted on 11/23/2011 by Lisa

    A few years back, when TeenNick was still called The N, and I was still called The-Lisa, we aired a life-changingly good reality show called Queen Bees. It's about seven mean girls living in a house together as they compete to see which of them can change the most.

    I don't like reality TV, but I loved Queen Bees, and I'm so excited for the chance to watch it again. If you missed it the first time around, here's a peek at what's coming:

    We'll be showing Queen Bees every weeknight at 9pm et, starting on Monday.

  • Songs from Degrassi: "Nowhere to Run"

    Posted on 11/18/2011 by Ryanmcl

    DEGRASSI SPOILERS below if you haven't seen the new episode yet. But if you watched and need to know what songs were playing, the generous Degrassi Music Team is happy to share the info and the stories behind how the songs got there!

    TeenNick's Degrassi

    "The Sun Shines At Night" by The Submarines
    The closing moments of the episode, as Clare and Jake turn out their lights Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
    "We had our ears on this song for a while, waiting for that special moment. Not only was it the right time of the day, but the lyrics smashed into Clare and Jake's minds -- both on either side of the wall -- both feeling the same thing. The wall still separates them, but the song means there's a shred of light in the dark."

    "Celebrate Love" by Michou
    The wedding scene. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
    "Such a sweet song for such a bittersweet moment. The song is about more than just Clare and Jake, it's about the juxtaposition of the marriage behind them, and the breakup before them. There's a celebration in the birth of one love and the death of another -- the song works on so many levels here."

    "Legendary" by Mr. Downstairs
    As they're driving away from the cabin. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
    "This song really feels like a culmination of a whole story, and cabins are such great places to get to know one another. When they leave, we're leaving an entire story behind, and the song gives us a nostalgic feeling, wishing we had one more day up there."

    Here's another behind-the-scenes video shot on the set of Degrassi: Nowhere to Run.

    "It's really dark, really late, and full of bugs." - Aislinn Paul (Clare)

    If you could sit by that fire, making s'mores (or making out), with any Degrassi character, who would it be?

    Justin Kelly plays Jake on Degrassi. For his Degrassi Video Yearbook, Justin chose six of the best school dance episodes. Here's his intro:

    Justin picked out some great episodes, and his descriptions made me laugh out loud. Do you agree with his choices? Degrassi has had a lot of dances over the years... which ones would be on your Top Six list?
