A few years ago, Susan Boyle surprised Simon Cowell and the world with her angelic voice. Since then, Boyle has conquered the music charts across the globe. While Bai Shuying may not have the same beautiful vocal prowess as Susan, she has the potential of being an internet sensation like the Scottish songbird.

65-year old grandmother Shuying auditioned for the new season of “China’s Got Talent” and wowed the audience and judges with her talent. Alex sent me the link and told me it was a must watch. I had no idea what he was sending me. Even after watching it for a few seconds, I still had no idea, as there were no subtitles. All of a sudden, the Chinese granny started to bust a move. Shuying was throwing down some serious Michael Jackson moves. All self-taught, I might add too.

Yikes, I can’t tell if Mike Sorrentino (aka “The Situation“) is in the wrong, or his dad, Frank Sorrentino. I’m thinking the latter. This guy totally reminds me of Lindsay Lohan’s douchie dad, Michael Lohan.

In this video rant, The Situation’s dad rants about how Mike has forgotten about the little people now that’s he’s at the top. To put it bluntly, it’s about money. He talks about having asked a “favor” from Mike in the past and was denied by him, apparently leaving him with welfare as his only option. Well, instead of welfare, he’s written a tell all book called the “Confrontation With Situation”. Gross. In a press release, his estranged father explains, “I think people should know what I know. Hard core partying, drugs, sex, crime elements, you name it, it’s in there. Some of it is funny, some of it you won’t believe, and underneath it all, well, it’s a hell of a situation, and I think you know what I mean. Based on what he did to me, my attitude is f*ck the little f*ck” and I’m not holding anything back.”

Last night, the remaining five couples battled it out with not one but two dance routines. The first was a rehearsed number with music they had all week. The second routine came from the the Instant Dance round where the couples had rehearsed their number but only received the music after their first dance. It was a lot of pressure and some seemed to buckle under it but a few did rise to the occasion.

I was the most impressed with Kirstie Alley who really brought the heat to her first performance and allowed her to receive her first 10 of the season. Chelsea Kane also stepped up her game with her Waltz but Ralph Macchio still continues to lose steam despite his early lead at the beginning of the season.

Elimination results kick off after Kirstie Alley and her partner Maks perform the encore of the evening. Hines Ward & Kym Johnson are safe and so are our encore dancers. Horray! The first performance of the night comes from DWTS veteran Michael Bolton. Snooze. He was only filling for Adele who due to feeling under the weather could only perform one song, Rolling In The Deep and thank god she did. With a routine choreographed by Travis Wall and featuring himself and Nick Lazzarini with two female partners, this performance is definitely one of my favorites this season.

Cam Gigandet Colors His World For GQ Fashion Spread

In: Donovan, Fashion

Cam Gigandet is all about contradictions as of late. For his upcoming movie, “Priest“, which opens this Friday May 13, he plays a vampire hunter. Just a few years ago, he played a vampire in the first installment of “Twilight”. The hunter now becomes the hunted. His latest flick, “Priest“, delves into very dark theory, yet he’s all sunshine and bright colors for his spread in GQ magazine. I love a man who flip flops *wink*.

This summer is all about color and it’s no more evident then in Gigandet’s fashion editorial for the latest issue of the men’s magazine. Photographer Cedric Buchet snapped the hottie, and former Man Crush of mine, on the technicolor streets of San Miguel. The city is known as Mexico’s artiest colonial town. I love the art direction of the shoot and glad color is back. So long dreary days of winter.

Book Review: The Color Purple

In: Dan, Random Reads

A few months ago I was down in Seattle visiting fellow cast member and close friend, Alex, who was in town for the week catching up with family and friends since his move down to LA. During this trip Alex passed along my late birthday and Christmas gift, The Color Purple by Alice Walker– both the book and the film! Alex and I have been discussing this story for years, especially since our girl, Oprah, made her film debut and garnered an Academy Award nomination for her epic portrayal of either Sophia or Celie (I am guessing as I have yet to watch the film).

I recently wrapped up the book – as I definitely believe in reading a story before watching the film adaptation – and I was incredibly surprised with how much I fell in love with this story. I’ll admit, I wasn’t familiar with the storyline or even the writing style of Alice Walker prior to cracking open the pages of the book. Honestly, all Alex and I would talk about was how I had to read the book and watch the film; he never gave me any details or further explanation. The opening chapter began with the statement, “Dear God”, and instantly touched me. The protagonist, Celie, is deeply religious and has consistently turned to God to carry her through the hardships she has experienced as a black woman living in a time when that fate in live was the lowest ranking on the human totem pole.

The Voice Contestants’ Professional Pasts

In: Donovan, TV Shows

When Frenchie Davis popped up on the premiere of “The Voice“, a few moaned that she shouldn’t be allowed to perform since she’s already had her shot at fame. Davis was infamously booted from “American Idol” during its second season. Topless photos of her popped up and the producers deemed her unworthy to compete for the Idol crown. Since then she’s appeared on Broadway in “Rent” and done various professional gigs. But that hit record remained elusive.

Now she’s back on TV and competing in another reality singing competition. She’s not the only one though. Not only have some appeared on Idol also, but there are others who’ve competed on other shows and even won them. Then, a few others have been signed to record labels and released albums. Maybe Taylor Hicks or Ruben Studdard should’ve thrown their hats in the ring too. They’re both doing squat these days. Would that be fair? Before you check out tonight’s episode of “The Voice”, learn about the professional pasts of some of “The Voice” contestants.

What do the Green Lantern and Ron Weasley have in common? They both think milk does a body good. I certainly couldn’t agree more, especially in the superhero’s case. Ryan Reynolds and Rupert Grint are the two latest celebrities donning milk moustaches for the “make mine milk” campaign in the UK. Previous celebrities featured in the British version of “Got Milk?” ads include Elle Macpherson, A-Team cast, The Wanted and most recently Usher.

The campaign was created by the Milk Marketing Forum in hopes of “reviving the nation’s love” for milk. The 22-year-old star of the Harry Potter films completed a challenge of drinking a pint of low-fat milk to promote the new ads. He did it in a respectable 20 seconds. Here’s why Grint lent his face for the initiative:

“I come from a big family and my mom always made sure we had lots of milk to drink as kids. It’s low in fat, refreshing and good for you, and really tasty too,” Grint said. “Nowadays I still have milk with cereal for breakfast and always try to pick up a milky cappuccino when I’m on set or on a photo shoot – it’s important to get your daily dose of milk.”

A while back, I had found a Glee Spoiler that turned the Glee story lines upside down. The return a recurring character that would change Rachael Berry’s story arc for the finale of the show. The one to return? Jesse (aka Jonathan Groff). His return sparks rumors that he is trying to win back Rachael’s heart.

In tonight’s much anticipated Prom episode, Lea and Jonathan revisit old harmonies and great vocal chemistry to cover Adele’s massive hit Rolling In The Deep. However, its not your usual Glee cover. This one has some a cappella appeal and sounds quite amazing with the random background vocals coming from those around them.

I am really excited about tonight’s episode especially with the MASSIVE SPOILER that came from an extra who worked on Glee quite frequently when she released who won Prom King and Prom Queen on her Twitter page. Tonight’s episode is not to be missed.

Watch Lea and Jonathan sing some Adele here.
