Blige, Melissa Etheridge, and Kelly Rowland. Additionally, Hall sat down with award-winning actress Janelle Monáe, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and poet, activist, and TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year Amanda Gorman.
Hall’s love of fashion remains a core element of the show with the stylish host spotlighting the hottest up-and-coming designers, sharing her favorite deals with a weekly segment called “Shop Tam Fam,” as well as the latest do-it-yourself hacks, crafting trends, and cooking and baking demos.
