As details continue to emerge in terms of what happened on the night that Olympic and Paralympic sprinter Oscar Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Blake Leeper to the program.
Leeper, also a Paralympic "blade runner" who competed against Pistorius in the 2012 Paralympic Games, described Pistorius as a role model and inspiration noting that, "the times that I spent with him, he went out of his way to help me out."
"He's the reason why I'm here today. He's the reason why he inspired me to want to compete and compete on a high level until it gets to the Paralympic Games."
Later in the evening, actor and comedian Wanda Sykes joined Piers Morgan in studio to give her hilarious take on the most trending news topics of the day.
In response to the revelation by music recording executive Clive Davis that he is bisexual, Sykes poked fun at the time the announcement was made:
"1:00 in the morning, there he is, this is a good time to say you're bisexual because, you know, 1:00 in the morning, everybody's - 1:00 in the morning, everybody is bisexual."
Watch the clip and listen to the interviews as Sykes shares with Morgan her favorite Oscar nominated films of 2013 and Leeper explains Pistorius' competitive nature.
