So what’s more nerve-wracking: Reading off a teleprompter in front of a national TV audience, or performing a song in front of the same audience? If you answered the former, then you have something in common with Florida Georgia Line.

“I’d rather play a whole show and I’d be less nervous than getting up there and trying to read,” singer Tyler Hubbard told “The Ralphie Show” ahead of this weekend’s American Music Awards. Last year the duo presented an award; this time the group has four nominations and will perform. “It’s just a whole another ball game for me at least but we got through it.”

Florida Georgia Line is up for Best New Artist, Single Of The Year, Favorite Country Band, Duo or Group, and Favorite Country Album. Of course the band’s big 2013 was fueled by the hit “Cruise,” with a crossover-friendly remix featuring rapper Nelly.

“We grew up listening to him,” Brian Kelley said of the “Country Grammer” star. “When we got the mix back, I still think about it. I’ll never forget the day we got it back. We were on the bus, and we listened to it probably a hundred times.”

Hubbard noted that Nelly proved to be more than just a solid musical collaborator.

“He gives us all kinds of advice. He’s a smart, smart guy,” Tyler said. “One thing that we definitely took from the beginning was, he’s just big on, yunno everything is just happening so fast for us and he’s just like, ‘Man, you can only be the new guys once. So just enjoy it, live it up, and keep working hard.’”

FGL will round out the year with a performance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and some December commitments before calling it a year on December 16. Suffice to say the southern boys haven’t quite acclimated to the northern weather yet.

“We’ll be back in New York, trying to stay warm,” Hubbard said. “I need to find me a scarf.”

“You probably won’t recognize us on the float,” added Kelley. “The only thing that’s going to be showing is our eyes and maybe our nose. We will be bundled up.”

Life & Style Weekly reports that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might be back together. Senior News Editor Jordi Lippe also talked about Britney Spears’ past with Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus not wanting to be seen with Lamar Odom on “The Ralphie Show.”

“American Idol” season nine finalist Tim Urban stopped by “The Ralphie Show” because he’ll be performing at Miss Connecticut USA this weekend. It serves as the state qualifier to Miss USA, and yielded the current national crown-holder, Erin Brady. I am a judge for the competition.

Tim also talked about his single, “Perfectly You,” and the current state of “Idol.”

You may not have heard much from Leona Lewis lately, but that doesn’t mean the “Bleeding Love” singer is sitting idle.

“I’ve been recording my album,” Leona told “The Ralphie Show” on Wednesday. “I’ve been touring as well. Yeah, I’ve been doing this in bits and pieces.”

The latest piece is Christmas, With Love. Lewis recorded the holiday album over the summer, and it hits shelves on December 3.

“Literally, when I started recording in the summer time, obviously British summers are not known to be really hot,” Lewis explained. “But, it was literally the hottest summer ever. So it was so weird recording when it was just kind of beaming hot outside.”

Like her label mate Kelly Clarkson, Lewis did decorate the studio a little bit to get in the spirit. With so much time thinking about the holidays, the singer also already knows what she wants from Santa.

“I actually want a gramophone,” she revealed. “I really want to play some old records at Christmas.”

Lewis also talked about some of her family traditions, such as opening up one present on Christmas Eve. Then of course, there’s that final night before the big day – or as the singer calls it on her holiday single, “One More Sleep.”

“The song is about waiting for Christmas day and waiting to see your family, your friends,” Lewis said. “I get really, really excited about it. So it’s basically that night before Christmas kind of feel.”

Yes, when Lewis was younger, she even went as far as to leave cookies for Mr. Claus himself before that last night. Miraculously when she would wake up, there would only be crumbs left.
