Diana DeGarmo Interview: The Holidays, The Young and the Restless and More (Video)

Diana DeGarmo was one of the many stars that took part in the Hollywood Christmas Parade Concert earlier this month where she performed a duet with fellow “American Idol” alum Ace Young.

We caught up with Diana on the carpet right after her performance to chat about the experience, the holidays and what it’s like working on “The Young & The Restless.”

On the song she performed: The song is an original written by Ace Young and myself. We wrote it because we wanted to have our own Christmas song. I have to admit it’s become my favorite Christmas song.

How has it been working on “The Young & The Restless”: They luckily slowly eased me into the shooting schedule. I like the challenge…Angelina is getting the soap opera dream. It’s fantastic.

On how she plans to spend the holidays: My first Christmas in LA will be spent sleeping in and hopefully ordering food from Whole Foods so I don’t have to cook.

You can watch Diana’s performance, along with performances by Cody Simpson and Jasmine V as well as the Hollywood Christmas Parade on the Hallmark Channel tonight at 6pm.
