They will be joined by the "Queens of Drama," the co-hosts of "The Talk," the co-hosts of the new lifestyle chat show "The FAB Life," and several other big stars from "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless."
"The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" will be telecast live exclusively on Pop on Sunday, April 26. Today, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and Pop announced the first round of presenters which includes cast members from "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," "The Young and the Restless," along with personalities Nancy O'Dell, Regis Philbin, Steve Harvey, Marie Osmond, Craig Ferguson, Shemar Moore and Alex Trebek.
As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy are Scott Clifton as Liam Spencer and Jacob Young as Rick Forrester, respectively, on "The Bold and the Beautiful," Chad Duell as Michael Corinthos on "General Hospital" and Kristoff St. John as Neil Winters on "The Young and the Restless."
Remember in 1998 when Carly (then played by Sarah Brown) stepped away from Michael's stroller for the tiniest of moments which led to his kidnapping by the hands of Tony Jones, who previously was led to believe Michael was his before Carly proclaimed the child to have been fathered by Jason? Fast forward to 2015, we find Sonny (Maurice Benard), seemingly in the Tony role, being kept away from his child by an all grown up Michael (Chad Duell), who tells his adopted father, "Step away from the stroller now" in this week's promo for ABC's "General Hospital."
ABC has confirmed that it will be recasting the contract role of Kiki Jerome on "General Hospital" with "The Young and the Restless" alum Hayley Erin (ex-Abby Newman). She is set to first air sometime in late February. Kristen Alderson, who originated the role, opted to leave when her contract was up earlier this month. She last airs in early February.
After joining the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" in the contract role of Starr Manning in 2012, which she originated in 1998 on "One Life to Live" when she was just 6 years old, Daytime Emmy Award winner Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome) has decided to leave the daytime drama series.

If you tuned into the Friday, October 24 episode of ABC's "General Hospital," you may have noticed a familiar face with a new do. Actress Kelly Sullivan returned as the spirit of Connie Falconeri, who was murdered last year by Ava Jerome (Maura West), in scenes with Maurice Benard's Sonny Corinthos. The return of a normally blonde Sullivan to "GH" comes just days before the actress is set to make her debut as a brunette Sage Warner on CBS' "The Young and the Restless."
“One Life to Live” fans had the privilege of literally watching Kristen Alderson grow up via her portrayal of Starr Manning, a role she landed back in 1998. And “General Hospital” fans then had the unique privilege of watching the actress shed the character she’d played for nearly 14 years on OLTL and embody her new character — Kiki Jerome — right before their eyes. The journey has been filled with a lot of ups and downs, but Alderson recently shared with Soap Opera Network that Kiki is finally coming into her own — which she couldn’t be more thrilled about!
With photography by Brad Everett Young, several of daytime's hottest young stars including "General Hospital's" Kristen Alderson (Kiki), Chad Duell (Michael), Ryan Carnes (Lucas), Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix) and Ian Buchanan (Duke), "Days of our Lives'" Brendan Coughlin (T), Allison Paige (Bev), Guy Wilson (Will), Jen Lilley (Theresa), Billy Flynn (Chad), Casey Moss (JJ) and Kevin Riggin (Rory), and "The Young and the Restless'" Camryn Grimes (Mariah), along with stars from "Baby Daddy" (Derek Theleer), "Teen Wolf" (Stephen Lunsford) and "Power Rangers," have taken part in the Dream Loud campaign that hopes to bring music and the arts programs back into schools. "Port Charles" alum Brian Gaskill is also featured in the campaign, among countless others.
Soap Opera Network's coverage of the red carpet during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards continues, this time with "General Hospital's" Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos), who was nominated for Outstanding Younger Actor. He didn't end up taking home the Emmy at the end of the night, but he shined like a winner anyway!
