For the first time in American Idol history, it’s an all-female Top 5. The last time females dominated a season was back in Season 3 when Jasmine Trias, Diana DeGarmo, LaToya London and Fantasia battled it out. Too bad Jennifer Hudson got booted so soon in the competition. Collectively, the Season 12 ladies are far stronger and arguably the best Final 5 ever. Usually there’s a weak one, but all of them are pretty solid.
Given that it’s an all-ladies affair, one of the themes for this week’s show is “Divas“. Naturally Mariah, Whitney, Celine, Beyonce and Dolly Parton are in the mix. Try to match them up before you go further. The second theme is one of my favorites- “The Year You Were Born“. The first time the FOX reality show used this theme was when Carrie Underwood wowed with “Alone.” I’m counting on each of the ladies to deliver this week.
Who picked the best and worst? I’m worried again for my girl Amber Holcomb. Her song choices seem uninspired (Divas) and odd (Birth Year). I’m thinking with the latter, she’s going for that “My Funny Valentine” vibe she showed during Vegas.
On the flip side, I feel Angie Miller and Candice Glover chose wisely with their choices. Glover’s pick for the year she was born is surprising. I can’t wait to see what she does with it. The last time this song was performed was during Hollywood Week Season 9 and he had everyone talking the next day. Find out all the songs below.
I don’t think there has ever been such a huge amount of opinion regarding an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race as there is about last night’s episode. I’m not going to talk about the show because I already did in my review. What I want to do is post Roxxxy Andrew’s reaction to the episode last night.
Here it is:
Seeing this post might surprise you since I don’t usually recap The Voice, but I love the Battle Rounds. Even though the blind auditions get all the hype and higher ratings, I’m all about this portion of the competition. I love it even more since Mark Burnett implemented the steal last season.
Speaking of which, I was surprised three contestants were stolen out of a possible six. With each judge only receiving two steals each, there’s still lots of battles to see. One mentor actually used both their allotted steals tonight. Silly, silly, silly. Overall I agree with all the judges’ winner picks with exception to one. Find out who below.
Two legendary actresses from classic television shows have signed on to appear as a lesbian couple on the FOX musical show. Even though the network hasn’t officially renewed the show, both actresses are expected to return should Glee come back for a fifth season.

FINAL FOUR! Did you guess right? I TOTALLY DID! Roxxxy, Jinkx, Detox and Alaska! KAPOW!
The final four- as in every season- have to do a mini pageant, and this season it was the SUGAR BALL! Each of the queens had to make 3 looks:
This was Roxxxy’s challenge to lose 100%. I said it last week, and I totally believed it right up until the end of the episode. Alaska was doing well, but she was having trouble with her candy couture: it kept breaking apart. Detox was struggling, as I feel she has been all season and I still don’t know why. Honestly, Detox is FIERCE, but girl, sometimes you just done have it. And, then there’s Jinkx, oh poor poor Jinkx. This episode was just a a plain ol’ mess for her from the antlers, to the skirt to the unrealized looks. Jinkx was definitely in over her head on this challenge, which was sadly unsurprising because I totally knew this was coming. And, now for the point of the entire episode: has Jinkx just been lucky this season? Roxxxy and Detox seem to think so, and I can’t say that I disagree.
Lionsgate debuted the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards. I have mixed feelings about this. While I enjoy getting a peek at the highly-anticipated sequel, I hate the fact I have to wait until November 22 to see the film. The wait is going to be excruciating.
For the first trailer, the movie studio avoided any footage of the Quarter Quell. Instead, it focuses on Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta’s (Josh Hutcherson) Victory Tour. After her rebellious joint win and public defiance, Katniss has become a beacon of hope. Clearly not happy with this, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots to take her down. ”Because of her, they all pose a threat. Because of her, they all think they’re invincible,” he says. Cue new cast member Philip Seymour Hoffman who plays new Head Gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee.
THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour” of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
Sadly, Hoffman is the only newbie featured in the video. Jena Malone and Sam Claflin are nowhere to be seen. I fully expect Lionsgate to roll out a few more trailers in the coming months, revealing only a morsel of goodness each time. I was really looking forward to seeing the new aquatic arena where the previous victors battle it out. Hopefully, next time they reveal it. Check out the first look at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire below.
Tonight on Big Brother Canada we picked up after Thursday’s double live eviction. We watched Alec and Topaz walk out the door and a nail biting Head of Household competition kick-started for this weeks HOH.
From the beginning everyone had a different approach for the challenge. Jillian wanted to start from the top and make her way to the bottom and the rest pretty much chose the same method of doing the exact opposite. Ultimately Jillian’s method paid off and she became the new HOH for the 3rd time this season.
Were you annoyed by Victoria Grayson’s faux death on last year’s season finale of Revenge? As much as I love the character, the fake out was very daytime soap 101. Knowing fans of the show didn’t appreciate the stunt, series creator Mike Kelly promises to change that on the Season 2 finale. He revealed that a major death will take place on the two-hour finale airing May 12. “One of our core cast members will not survive the finale,” he says. Here’s what he told TVLine.com.
“Our audience will not have to wait to find out the identity of the person that didn’t survive. We will let them know within the two hours. It’ll be a surprise who it is – and it’s certainly a surprise to Emily.”
How great is it that we don’t have to wait til the Fall to figure out who? Who do you think will meet their maker? Given that Kelly stated it’s a major character, I only added series regulars on the poll below. Cast your vote on who you think is bidding auf wiedersehen? After that, keep reading to find out who I predict it’ll be.
