Last night, Lady Gaga did double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. With a strong opening monologue, the scene was set for a great show full of laughs and strong musical performances. Actually, before Gaga greeted the audience, we were treated to a hilarious sketch train wreck Toronto mayor, Rob Ford with Bobby Moynihan taking on the role. I was crossing my fingers that they’d do a sketch on this and thought Moynihan was perfect.
Gaga wasn’t afraid to make fun of herself throughout the show and I felt that in particular she really shined in the mockery of herself as “Old Lady Gaga“, playing herself in the future after people have forgotten about her. Her vocal performances were very strong and it was great that she had R. Kelly on the show to perform “Do What You Want” along with her. The two looked like they were having a lot of fun and they certainly weren’t afraid to get intimate with each other to bring the steamy lyrics to life.
Check out a handful of the sketches and musical performances from last night via the videos below. How did you think Gaga did on the show? What was your favorite sketch? Share your own opinions below in the comments.
After twelve seasons of Project Runway and three All-Stars edition, Tim Gunn is finally getting his own show. Although technically not a spin-off, the premise of his new reality show sounds like a mashup of Project Runway and The Voice. I will say though, Under The Gunn is a cute show title.
Gunn won’t be the only Project Runway alum on the series. It’ll also feature three fan-favorites who’ve competed on the original fashion competition. They will each mentor a group of five up-and-coming designers. After which, the contestants will be critiqued by three notable fashion experts. Find out who the mentors and judges are below.
Threesomes, bath houses, open relationships, bears and a shirtless Jonathan Groff… and that’s just the tip of the iceberg in HBO’s second promo for its upcoming new gay series Looking. Unlike the first clip, this one has dialogue and gives a better (albeit brief) look into the San Francisco-based show. I have a feeling this is going to be a home run and the next, and dare I say it… better Queer As Folk.
Glee’s Jonathan Groff plays a video game developer named Patrick. While successful in his career, he’s completely the opposite in his personal life. Also part of the cast is Frankie Alvarez. He’ll play Patrick’s bestie named Augustin. He’s a politico with a really big ego and has a problem settling down. Murray Bartlett, Russell Tovey and Scott Bakula round out the cast.
Looking premieres January 19th, 2014 on HBO after Girls‘ third season premiere. I’m so excited. Check out the new series trailer below.
I wouldn’t say Thursday night’s results were shocking, but definitely surprising. I can’t believe the truly awful acts advanced, let alone escaped the bottom three. Instead, the ones that were cut were actually acts that didn’t make me cringe whenever they performed. What was America thinking? Check out all the results below, the Save Me sing-off and performances by Selena Gomez and Fifth Harmony.
The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is one of my favorite events of the year. No lie. I look forward to it like a child does Christmas Day. This year, I finally got an in to check out the event but prior obligations prevented me from flying out to New York City. Oh well, maybe next year.
CBS doesn’t air the fashion show until December 10, but the extravaganza was held last night at the Lexington Avenue Armory. Fashion TV was on hand to film a sneak preview of the Angels strutting the runway with their elaborate oversized wings. In addition, they give a sneak peek at performances by Fall Out Boy, A Great Big World and Taylor Swift. The latter even sashayed along with the models. Stick to your day job TayTay. Watch the video below.
Holy expect the unexpected Julie Chen. MTV is stealing a page from Big Brother’s book of twists. For the first time in 28 seasons, the veteran reality show is shaking things up and implementing a twist when it heads back to San Francisco.
As usual, seven attractive strangers will live in a house and have their lives taped. We’ll soon find out what happens, when people stop being polite, and start getting real and messy. One month into their three month stay, the group will go away for a day trip. When they return, they find out their exes have moved into their house as well. SHOCKER!!! The show will be retitled to Real World: Ex-Plosion to reflect the change.
Can we just stick a fork in it, because The X Factor is done. I don’t even know why I’m still covering it. With dwindling ratings and mediocre talent when compared to The Voice, the FOX show is on major life support. Even Simon Cowell looks disinterested with the outcome. It’s the same look he had during his last season on American Idol. Dare I even say, he’s embarrassed sitting on the panel. I would be too, if these are the best twelve acts from the auditions. With that being said, the only performances I can stomach are usually Cowell’s groups. Smells like sabotage to me.
Thankfully, producers are expediting things by having a triple elimination this week. After last week’s technical mishap, one act was immediately cut before the performances. The unlucky one to get the boot was Carlos Guevara. At least America is getting it right. He’s horrible.
Too bad viewers weren’t in charge of song choices and everything else. Perhaps, the X Factor could be saved. Nah! Nothing can do that. Oh well, let’s get to the performances.
Reunited and it feels so good (AGAIN). For all you Friends fans pining for a reunion special or movie, here’s something to tide you over for what will possibly never happen. As much as I want a full-fledged reunion, I don’t think that will ever come to fruition.
Courteney Cox and Matthew Perry are reuniting once more. Since the iconic comedy, the two have appeared together to promote Jennifer Aniston’s co-hosting gig on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and also on Perry’s now-canceled NBC sitcom, Go On. Matthew is now returning the favor for his former TV wife and stopping by the fifth season of Cougar Town.
Go On creator Scott Silveri, who also worked on Friends, stated that “there were no trades” between his show and Cougar Town. “We just sent them some wine. I know they like that over there,” Silveri joked at the time, adding that “it was really fun to see the two of them together.”
