In this 2008 interview with SIDEWALKS host Cindy Rhodes, Donny and Marie talked about their performing style and their new variety show at the Flamingo in Las Vegas.

Brother and sister Donny and Marie Osmond have been performing all their lives. They are both singers, actors, and dancers. One of their earliest TV appearances was on “The Andy Williams Show,” where Donny and Marie’s older brothers (Alan, Wayne, Merrill and Jay) were regulars. As the years progressed, they became successful solo artists: Donny in the rock scene and Marie in the country music world. Their teaming and popularity grew when the Osmond siblings became the youngest primetime hosts of their own variety show called “Donny & Marie” in the mid ’70s. The duo recorded several albums together prior to and while starring in their hit TV series. The two reunited on TV in 1998 in the syndicated “Donny & Marie” daytime talk show. In recent years, Donny has been a game show host, a Broadway performer, a TV magazine correspondent (“Entertainment Tonight” and spinoff “The Insider”) and actor in such movies as “College Road Trip.” Marie is a successful doll designer and seller, a weight loss pitchperson, and was a contestant on the fifth season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Since 2008, the siblings are still performing at The Flamingo Hotel with their stage show.
