“So here’s the deal. We’re all about celebration and happiness this time of the year,” she explained. “There’s a lot to celebrate in December. And today is a special day too.”

Dylan Dreyer said it was “one of the most special” days. They both turned to Craig Melvin, who drank his coffee. They asked him if they knew what day it was. “Tuesday?” he asked. “What are y’all doing?’

Sheinelle revealed that it was National Violin Day. She wanted to honor their co-host by sharing a throwback photo of Craig when he was younger and played the violin. Craig looked at his photo in embarrassment.

“Did you know that today is National Violin Day?” Sheinelle asked him. “You people cannot get that off of that picture!” Craig Melvin exclaimed.

Sheinelle ignored him and shared facts about the day. The camera kept his picture up for the viewers at home to look at. Craig sat there in embarrassment. Sheinelle suggested that he should do a live violin recital in the new year.

He was against that idea. Craig doesn’t think anyone needs to see that. Sheinelle said they should start a band, but he turned her down once again. Dylan noticed the awkwardness and suggested they move on the weather.

Calls out Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb

As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Craig Melvin was blasted by Hoda Kotb later this week. She called him a procrastinator. It happened when the co-anchors discussed last-minute holiday shopping on Friday’s broadcast.

“Christmas is nine short days away. It’s a big weekend for shopping,” Craig Melvin said.

“Procrastinators!” Hoda Kotb jumped in. She gave Craig the stink eye. Craig responded: “Come on, now!” Savannah Guthrie sat awkwardly in between them. Hoda continued: “Are expected to turn out in droves to scoop up those vital bargains.”

They eventually turned over the segment to Vicki Nguyen, who had to join in on the fun. What do you think of Craig Melvin’s co-host blasting him for revealing his hidden talent? Do you think he should play the violin live on Today? Sound off below in the comment section.
