At long last Kelly Clarkson delivers the music video for “Underneath The Tree” weeks after the adorable lyric one. The visual not only serves as the official clip for the track, but also as a promo for her upcoming NBC Christmas special, Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale airing on NBC Tuesday, December 11 at 10pm.
Clarkson and guests will celebrate the festive season with a comedic musical take on a traditional Christmas morality tale. Song selection will come directly off her just-released Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, featuring classics such as “Silent Night” and “White Christmas” as well as new material including “Underneath The Tree” and the title track.
Superstars Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire and Trisha Yearwood guest star on the upcoming holiday special. Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, William Shatner, Danica Patrick, Heidi Klum, Ken Jeong and Jai Rodriguez also make appearances.
Check out the music video below which features Kelly performing during her upcoming special and B-roll footage of her getting ready backstage. Given that she’s newly-married and has a baby on the way, I don’t blame her for taking the easy route with the clip.
Previously on The Voice, Ray Boudreaux and Caroline Pennell were shown the door. Definitely not a surprise as neither had much momentum on their side. With Pennell out, poor Cee Lo Green is officially without a team. As a result, he’s jumped on Team Blake to support Cole Vosbury. Serves Green right for picking Jonny Gray over Cole during the battles. Where’s Jonny now?
On tonight’s show, each singer hit the stage twice. With only six competitors left, pressure is on to separate themselves from the pack. The competition is too close to call and any slight mistake can make you vulnerable. Just ask Matthew Schuler. Last week’s fumble almost got him kicked out of the game. See below if he did enough to escape elimination this week.
Several weeks ago, a video showcasing Justin Bieber and his entourage goofing around at the Great Wall of China debuted online. The 19-year-old wisely decided to give the track a proper music video. Smart business move considering radio is supporting the track. I definitely don’t have Bieber Fever, but “All That Matters” is one of his better tracks he’s recently released. The electric guitar is beyond sexy.
The Collin Tilley-directed clip is relatively simple given the budget Bieber has access to, but it works. The sultry moody video is a perfect complement to the track’s stripped-down production. Check out the newly-released visual below.
Ellen DeGeneres must have male strippers on speed dial. It seems every time I tune in to her talk show, a new crop of shirtless studs are congratulating a guest for a recent engagement, wedding, pregnancy, birthday or some other random reason. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ellen congratulated someone for getting their period. Right?
On Monday’s episode, Allison Janney was the latest recipient of Ellen’s “generosity.” I have to say, out of all the ones I’ve seen, Allison appeared to have the most fun with it. She wasn’t at all embarrassed, and if anything, reveled in all the male eye candy. Girlfriend’s eyes were bugging out and her hands were touching the merchandise (extensively). Check out the clip below.
Happy endings are so overrated. At least according to Lena Dunham. The official Season 3 poster for Girls has been released with the tagline, “Happily Whatever After.” I don’t need it to be a laugh a minute, but something perkier than last year’s extremely somber vibe would be nice. After all, it’s technically a comedy.
For the first time ever, HBO includes the show’s boys in the poster. You’d never see the Sex and the City gals with their men on the promotional artwork. Those bitches wanted the spotlight all for themselves ;) I have to say, I like that Hannah (Dunham) and crew are joined by Adam (Adam Driver) and Ray (Alex Karpovsky). My only complaint is that Elijah (Andrew Rannells) isn’t featured. He should get some attention now that he’s returning after The New Normal’s cancellation.
Season 3 of Girls will premiere with a special two-part event on Sunday, January 12th at 10 pm on HBO. Following that, the highly-anticipated new gay series, Looking premieres. I can’t wait.
What do you think of the poster? I love the whole 4 am disheveled after a major rager look? Don’t you? Sound off below.
Since 1993, Barbara Walters has compiled ten public figures yearly for her annual 10 Most Fascinating People list. The chosen few run the gamut, ranging from fields of entertainment, sports, politics and popular culture. With her retirement forthcoming, the 2013 edition is reportedly her last for ABC.
As always, the number one spot on her list will not be revealed until the television special airs on December 18. Previous figures to earn the distinction as Most Fascinating Person include Steve Jobs (2011), Michele Obama (2009), Barack Obama (2008), J.K. Rowling (2007) and David Petraeus who received the honor in both 2010 and 2012. Find out below which nine people made the Top 10 list this year, but just missed out on the top spot.
Did you catch Lady Gaga’s holiday special on ABC? I didn’t, but stumbled upon the videos of the duets from the extravaganza. After checking them out, I’m half tempted to watch the entire thing. Perhaps, I’ll do it later this weekend as I’m nursing one of my hangovers ;)
During Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, the 27-year-old pop star enlisted some expected and some not so expected duet partners. While Elton John and RuPaul are a given, seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt join Mother Monster on “Baby It’s Cold Outside” was a pleasant surprise. Random, but appreciated. My favorite of the duets though has to be the one with RuPaul. They’re like two peas in a pod those two. The Drag Race host was serving fierceness from every pore of her body. Hunty definitely WEEEERKED it.
Clearly, Gaga enjoyed her time with the furry bunch. She’s set to join them on their eight film feature, Muppets Most Wanted, opening March 21. In the meantime, check out the vids below.
The episode, in terms of storyline, sucked major balls, but boy did Glee slay it with a couple of the performances. Watching Kurt’s Madonna cover band tackle one of my favorite hits from Madge was fantastic. If Lea Michele’s solo career doesn’t pan out, she should really consider forming a modern day S Club 7 with Adam Lambert, Naya Rivera, Demi Lovato and Chris Colfer. I could watch the five of them perform all night long.
As wonderfully enjoyable as that number was, my favorite of the night, and perhaps this season so far, was Janet Jackson’s “Nasty” and “Rhythm Nation” mashup. Once again, the show nailed iconic choreography from a classic music video. Jacob Artist was everything during it. If at all possible, he looked even sexier than usual. I can honestly say, he’s my favorite guy on the show currently. I’m sorta crushin’ hard on him these days.
As an aside, I really hope Ryan Murphy dedicates an entire episode to Janet before Glee signs off forever. Whitney, Madonna, Billy Joel and Lady Gaga have all had tribute episodes. Queen and Britney even had two. I think it’s about time Miss Jackson gets some loving too, like her brother Michael. Don’t you agree? Check out the wicked good Janet number below, along with all the performances including “The Fox” which was, I hate to admit it, kinda adorable.
