Being that it was British Invasion week, naturally Simon Cowell coerced his biggest discovery to perform on the results show. Perhaps having One Direction on The X Factor might stop the ratings bleeding. After all, they have already sold 35 million copies in their relatively young career.
I have to say Liam, Harry and Zayn are looking pretty fine these days, especially the latter. The beard really suits him. Louis on the other hand needs to ditch his lame attempt to grow facial hair. He looks like a Three Musketeers reject from some high school production. Check out their performance below, along with the double elimination results.
Side note: The highlight for me on tonight’s episode was Mario dishing out “por favor” to Paulina. The Latina popstar was taking her sweet ass time deciding on who to send home. In all fairness, maybe she didn’t understand the gravity of situation until Lopez served up some espanol ;)
Based on the picture above, I’d say he has what it takes to be a bottom ;)
On America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks plays the dotting supportive mentor. On tonight’s Glee, Banks gets to channel her inner bitch by playing a tough modeling agent. Fittingly enough, her character’s name is Bichette. She reveals in the behind-the-scenes clip, her experiences as a young model with bitchy agents serves as inspiration for her portrayal.
If Banks isn’t enough to make you tune in to tonight’s episode, perhaps a shirtless Chord Overstreet will do the trick. Contrary to Bichette’s advice, I think Sam needs to gain ten pounds instead of losing it. More muscle preferably. He heads to New York with Blaine to visit Rachel, Kurt and Santana. Also on Glee tonight, the Gleeks pay homage to Billy Joel. Check out both Tyra’s BTS clip and “Movin’ Out” promo below.
Following the success of the first season of The Amazing Race Canada, CTV has just announced that the casting for Season 2 of the reality competition series is now open!
Fans and adventure-seekers now have their chance to take part in what would undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience where they can win big in the process. If you’re familiar with the series, you already know that they like to put together a very diverse cast and there’s usually a gay/lesbian team among the mix as well – wink wink;) If you and your boyfriend or best friend think you have what it takes and think Canada will be entertained by watching you both be pushed to your limits, don’t miss out on this opportunity! Now’s your time to shine and show the country who you are and the bond you and your challenge partner have together. A sexy and successful couple (who maybe like to take their shirts of during challenges? Yes please! Gay besties that bicker like an old married couple? I’m speaking from personal experience here – ahem… Adam). Or perhaps it’s you and a family member and whatever crazy dynamic you may have between you (good or bad). Anything goes so don’t be shy! If you procrastinated for Season 1 video applications and didn’t get around to submitting one, make a plan today and get ‘er done!
The deadline for submissions is Thursday, Dec. 26 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Those interested can go online now at www.CTV.ca/TheAmazingRaceCanada and submit an audition video and application for their chance to join host Jon Montgomery on road, on the race-of-a-lifetime adventure.
Overall, I thought X Factor Season 3’s Top 10 performed solidly as a whole tonight. They ranged from relatively tolerable to pretty good with only one being a borderline hot mess. What a difference a week makes? Maybe it’s my lowered expectations or the fact I was slightly distracted with household chores that did the trick. Whatever the reason, tonight was somewhat enjoyable.
Once again it’s a double elimination this week. How about a triple one next week? Let’s get this season over and done with. Check out all the British Invasion Week performances below.
While not the youngest guest host ever, Josh Hutcherson at 21-years-old is certainly on the younger end. Just in case you’re wondering, Drew Barrymore at 7, holds that record with Macaulay Culkin as the second-youngest person at the ripe old age of 11. At that age, I was still playing with my Lego ;)
Hutcherson joins forces with Saturday Night Live regular Bobby Moynihan for a series of clips promoting this weekend’s show. The two talk about everything ranging from their worst summer jobs to The Hunger Games. Josh even jokingly spoils the ending of the highly-anticipated sequel. Everybody dies… NOT.
The Peeta Mellark depicter revealed to E! News recently that his Hunger Games co-host Jennifer Lawrence gave him advice. “She told me to not hold back and to give it my all,” he stated. I’m sure wise words given she hosted SNL earlier this year. Not only will Josh have to live up to Lawrence’s performance but also Lady Gaga’s as well. The “Applause” singer’s episode last week matched a ratings season-high. Check out the promos below.
If you haven’t watched American Horror Story yet, now is the time. The latest anthology is killing it, giving the FX show its highest ratings to date. Also, the watercooler buzz is hotter than effort mostly in part to the fabulous trinity of Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates. These three women are some badass witches, especially Bassett. My eyes light up every time she comes on screen. You can tell she’s having loads of fun playing voodoo queen Marie Laveau.
It’s no surprise Entertainment Weekly put them on their cover. American Horror Story: Coven is a phenomenon. The issue which includes exclusive interviews with Lange, Bates, and Bassett, plus AHS mainstays Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy and Denis O’Hare hits newsstands this Friday. Also in the publication, Ryan Murphy reveals his dream cast list for future seasons of AHS and what’s in store for the rest of this season of Coven.
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.
