AJ And Free Address Dating Rumors And 106 & Park’s Final Act
by Staff Editor
Yesterday was a bittersweet day for 106 & Park fans over the years, as audience members and viewers watched the last episode of the show air on BET.
Although the show is going digital, the show won’t be the same without fans tuning in to see their favorite artists be interviewed and perform for the “livest audience” around every weekday. The network invited all of the old hosts back for the final send-off of the music countdown series, and yes, AJ and Free were the main hosts this time. Joined by other veteran hosts Terrence J, Rocsi, Big Tigger, Julissa Bermudez, as well as newer hosts Bow Wow, Keisha Chante, Miss Mykie, and Paigion, fans got the full goodbye experience.
As far as AJ and Free go, it’s been almost a decade since the two hit the 106 & Park stage together, but once they hit the set, their chemistry didn’t miss a beat as they brought back that energy that we’ve all missed. They were the originators of the action that goes down on the show’s set, which includes AJ giving Janet Jackson a lap dance, their last interview with Aaliyah, talking to Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange all on one couch, and so many more.
We got a chance to talk to AJ and Free before the last episode came to a close, where they talked about some of the rumors back in the day, how they feel about the show ending, and when they were most star struck.
