Now, that’s what I call TALENT. I could be wrong, but I don’t think an audition like this has ever appeared on any of the Got Talent shows anywhere in the world. It’s a shame really. After watching this, I really do think singing strippers should be mandatory for every vocal competitions.
The 24-year-old hopeful showed off all his assets for the Australia’s Got Talent judges (Dannii Minogue, Brian McFadden and Kyle Sandilands). Literally. While Dylan Yeandle sang Tom Jones’ “Sex Bomb”, he shed his clothing as he showed off his better stripper moves. He truly was a sex bomb. Blasting sexy grenades all over the place. Dylan even resorted to flirting with the judges, especially Sandilands. Does Dylan play for our team or just a straight cock tease?
All the judges, even the boys, enjoyed the performance. Afterward, they all complimented Dylan’s body parts, from his legs to his package. Funny enough, they barely touched on his singing abilities. Not surprisingly, they all gave him three yeses. The host even gave him a “tip” when Dylan walked off the stage. I really need to visit Australia. It truly is the gay Disneyland- hot boys everywhere.
The CW’s fall schedule was going to look pretty regular for a while when hit shows 90210, Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and Supernatural all got early season renewals. That left veteran One Tree Hill on the bubble with Hellcats and Nikita. In the end, the veteran would stand strong and take Nikita along for the ride leaving Hellcats in the dust along with Life Unexpected and Shedding for the Wedding.
Now that Smallville has come to it’s epic conclusion after 10, long running seasons, The CW really needs to find a show that can carry on that sort of longevity. Heavy hitter Gossip Girl seems to be doing just fine on it’s own but with the wrap of of this season, I think that the kids of the upper east side may only have one more year under the belts. I am curious to see how 90210 will survive with the kids moving on in to college and spreading out all over the place.
Then of course, we have One Tree Hill which doesn’t seem to die. Even though many of it’s original key players have since moved on from the show, its popularity still continues to thrive with it’s audience but I’m banking on this next season being it’s last. So now we bring in the newbies. We have a Vampire Diaries like witch-a-thon, a butt kicking Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV and an O.C. sweetheart makes her debut in Alabama. Should make for an interesting fall.
This week’s Man Crush was so hot, two of us were fighting over him. LOL. Here’s the story. Both Tyrell and I noticed Chris Powell while watching “Dancing With The Stars” at our respective condos. Powell was in attendance to promote his upcoming show on ABC, “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition“. The second I laid my eyes on him, I knew he was going to be this week’s Man Crush. Tyrell was also smitten and started a draft titled, “Meet Chris Powell”. Immediately, I texted him to let him know he beat me to the punch. We jokingly fought over him and Tyrell was gracious enough to let me have him ;)
I thought Bob Harper from “The Biggest Loser” was cute, but Chris Powell has me saying, Bob who??? As mentioned before, Chris will be one of the featured trainers on ABC’s new weight loss reality show. He’ll guide participants through their transformations by moving into their homes. By assuring that they have the proper nourishment and exercise movement, he provides a fresh perspective to individuals whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight.
“The human body is an amazing machine that we can transform naturally,” Chris says. “I have devoted my being to developing innovative lifestyles and tools to enrich the lives of others, and each life changed has been a remarkable gift.”
Powell first gained national attention when he helped an obese David Smith lose 401 lbs in 26 months for a TLC special, “The 650-pound Virgin“. He parlayed that exposure into appearances on other national shows like “The Oprah Winfrey Show“, “20/20“, and “The View“. For those of you out there wondering what his relationship status is, unfortunately, he’s married with children. Be sure to catch all of Chris’ hotness when “Extreme Makeover: Weight Lose Edition” premieres on ABC on May 30, 2011.
Previously on America’s Next Top Model, the final three took on a romantic photo shoot and all of them delivered… for the most part. Andre Leon Talley was not impressed with Hannah’s foot and she got the boot. She was always cannon fodder. Molly was called out first, continuing her late game surge. Left to fight it out in the finale with her is Brittani. It’s actually a pretty decent final two. Could you imagine if Tyrant had suckered us with Alexandria and Kasia. God. I would’ve died. So here we are. The Blonde vs the Brunette. Hilariously Snarky Molly vs Brittani the Redeemer. Will Tyrant reward Molly’s rise from the heinous weave makeover? Or will Brittani’s comeback from her mid-cycle meltdown be too good a story to ignore? Who will be America’s Next Top Model?
Okay. I gotta say this. It’s my first recap since the cast list for the Cycle 17 all-star edition was announced. OMFG. Do you know how much I raged to see Tyrant pick haggard old drama girls like Dominique, Lisa, Camille, and Alexandria. Awful. Seriously awful. Thankfully Alison and Kayla are in there to give me somebody to root for. The drama might just be too much. And speaking of delusional drama queens… where is Jade? She’s right up there with Camille and Alexandria. Turns out she didn’t like the contract they wanted her to sign. She said it was too one-sided. Hmmmm…. Whatever happened I am so effing glad Jade and her third-person crazy will not be back on my TV. Preach.
So here we are. Down to two. We start off in the bus with the two girls congratulating each other and retelling their sob stories. Molly was adopted and has abandonment issues. She went to rehab. Brittani had a mother with some sort of anxiety disorder and grew up in a trailer park. You can’t even make this shit up. They both talk about why they’re gonna win and how nervous they are about the CoverGirl commercial and shoot.
It’s the Final 3, ya’ll. We’re only one week away from crowning this year’s American Idol. Who’ll it be? Scotty, Lauren or Haley? Millions of people are waiting on the edge of seats to see who’ll battle it out at the Nokia Theater next week. I can’t believe I’m one of those people. At this point last year, people (including me) were wondering if Idol could survive without Simon Cowell. Surprisingly, the answer is a resounding… yes.
As in past years, the remaining Idols sing three songs apiece- contestant’s choice, Jimmy Iovine’s choice and judges’ choice. Beyonce was on hand this week to coach the Idols with their individual picks. Obviously, B wasn’t just there to show off her mentoring skills but rather to promote her new single and debut her brand new music video for “Run The World (Girls)“. Not surprisingly, she wasn’t the most insightful when it came to give the singers constructive comments.
All three received a hero’s welcome back in their respective hometowns. Even fourth place James Durbin attracted a sizable crowd for his homecoming. I’m sure with tomorrow’s hour long results show we’ll see much more of their hometown visits. Unfortunately, one of them will be heading back home tomorrow. Metaphorically speaking of course, since the finale is next week and everyone is sticking around to practice for it. Check out how each contestant fared in each round below.
Being the number one network in the country affords you a lot perks. One of them being, you don’t have to tweak your schedule too much. That being said, when you’re on top you can’t rest on your laurels either. CBS picked up six new shows in total for the 2011 TV season. Five of them will premiere in the fall, with one waiting in the wings for mid-season.
I have to admit, besides “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race“, I don’t watch any CBS shows. I never got on the CSI bandwagon, “The Big Bang Theory” or even “How I Met Your Mother”. I checked out the now-canceled “$#*! My Dad Says“, but mentally checked out before the first commercial break.
Over the years, CBS has been teased they’re the senior citizen network, due to the fact they skew way older than the other networks. No matter how hard they try, they stay geriatric. You can’t change like that overnight, but based on their new shows, they are at least moving in the right direction.
“Comedy was a priority. We also wanted to get more women. we’re very excited about introducing some strong female pieces and also some strong female-appeal pieces.” Nina Tassler, President of CBS Entertainment
Before we check out the new shows and timeslot changes, here’s a list of all the shows who bit the dust this past season.
Canceled Shows: “As the World Turns”, “The Bridge”, “CHAOS”, “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior”, “The Defenders”, “Live to Dance”, “Mad Love”, “Medium”, “$#*! My Dad Says”
Last night, Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas blew away the competition when they received one round of a perfect thirty and then managed to grab an extra 15 bonus points when they were the winners of the Winner Takes All Cha Cha. All of these points left Ralph Macchio in the dust and at the very bottom of the leader board. Kirstie Alley fell to the middle of the pack while Hines Ward and his partner Kym Johnson did an incredible bounce back from the injury they had experienced in the week and scored a perfect 60 for the night.
Tonight, we discover which three couples will be moving on to the finals to perform their freestyle routine to try and win the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy. Tonight, we are also treated to performances by Stevie Nicks and Pitbull & Ne-Yo perform their hit Give Me Everything. I can’t wait.
It’s week two and we’re back “Beyond the Thunderdome“, I mean the Battle Ring. Doesn’t Thunderdome sound so much better though? Replace Carson Daly for Tina Turner and we’re all set. Last week’s matchups on “The Voice” were so good, I was a little worried I’d be let down this week. The second round of blind auditions totally sucked, compared to the premiere. The producers definitely stacked the first week.
While watching the episode, I began to wonder exactly how much time the judges spent coaching with their team. Even though the battle rounds are spread over four weeks, it’s clear they were all filmed the same day. In fact, I’m curious to know what the time was from the blind auditions to the battle rounds. Was it all filmed in just a couple of days? If so, poor contestants.
Back on hand to guest mentor the competitors this week were Sia, Monica, Blackstone and Reba McEntire. Speaking of which, I’m loving both Monica and especially Sia. Watching their expressions during the performances crack me up. Watch all of the battles below.
