DWTS 12 Sesaon Finale: And The Winner Is…

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

Last night, Dancing With the Stars crowned their season 12 champion, but not without 45 minutes of recaps, reflections and fillers to keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The night kicks off with a full out performance from the pros while introducing the couples from the entire season. Following the recap of Monday night’s performances, the Black Eyed Peas take to the stage for a dazzling performance.

The judges describe the final three and their thoughts followed by performances from the season’s fallen stars. The performances are better than the first time around. Petra Nemcova and her partner Dmity redo their Waltz with a special performance from Josh Groban performing You Raise Me Up. Between a few of the performances from the stars, we are treated to a song from The Go Go’s singing We Got The Beat while “Officer Maks” dancing with three of the sexy female pros.

The Voice: Battle Week Three Videos

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Ugh, two singing competitions to recap in one night. FML. Too boot, the Vancouver Canucks were playing to advance to the Stanley Cup finals. They won, just in case you were wondering. It was too much to handle in one evening. Thank God, for digital recording.

It was week three of the battle rounds and you know the drill by now. Each of the judges pit two singers to battle it out in the ring. Sia, Monica, Blackstone, and Reba McEntire were back to help the judges mentor the kids. IMHO, the battles this week paled in comparison to the previous two rounds. Hopefully this isn’t a sign that my interest is waning from “The Voice”. Perhaps, I’m feeling a little jaded this week since two of the decisions I didn’t agree with. Continue reading to find out which two.

It’s great to see (and hear) Alanis Morissette so in love. We’ve known her to sing songs of heartbreak or just sombre songs in general, but this one’s different. She had to go through those darker times in order to be able to come up with hits like like You Outta Know or Uninvited, but now that’s she’s madly in love with her husband Mario “MC Souleye” Treadway, and we get to hear another side of her.

For their one year wedding anniversary, Alanis Morissette has released a song called “Into A King” that is written to and about her man. She uploaded it to Soundcloud and announced it on Twitter. Alanis starts the song off singing about them falling in love: “‘It started harmless enough/Animal infatuation/But something within it prevailed.” She then goes onto singing about the actual anniversary in the chorus, saying: “Happy anniversary, baby / You’ve gone from a prince into a king / Happy anniversary, darling / I’ve gone from a maiden to a queen.”

The song is so romantic and heartfelt, it’s sure to make it into your “love song” playlist. I can’t wait to hear what she comes out with next!

I was recently in the Sunshine State for the first time about a month ago and immediately fell in love. While I was in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, plenty of people kept telling me to check out Key West. Unfortunately, time didn’t permit me to head there. Hopefully you’ll have a chance to go and tell me all about it. The Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa is located within walking distance to the world famous Duval Street.

American Idol 10: Top 2 Performances

In: Donovan, TV Shows

At long last, we’re finally at the Nokia Theater. It’s come down to Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery to fight it out for the “American Idol” crown. Not only is it an all-country final, but it’s the youngest final in Idol history. Would the cool deep-voiced country boy prevail over the Georgia Peach sweetheart?

For the final live performance show of the season, the two have to sing three songs apiece. The first being a redo of an earlier favorite performance, followed by a selection picked by George Strait for Scotty and Carrie Underwood for Lauren. It’s funny how the producers asked two country singers to pick the round two songs, but didn’t show them at all. Perhaps they’re saving it for the bloated 2-hour finale. For their last performance, the two perform their potential singers selected by Jimmy Iovine.

Before we get to the performances, Ryan Seacrest reveals a little behind-the-scenes drama. During rehearsals Lauren blew one of her vocal chords, causing producers to panic as to whether the singer could perform. There were even rumblings that Haley Reinhart might be brought back to sing in her place. Yeah, right that was ever going to happen. After pumping Lauren with medicine and treat her, the doctors clear her for the finale. Going into the night, Scotty was an overwhelming favorite. Then when you factor Lauren wasn’t physically at her best, it practically ensured a victory for McCreery. Would this be a cakewalk for him? Watch the performances and find out.

Often times, we at Homorazzi.com are invited to attend some pretty wicked events. Unfortunately, due to geographical issues we can’t be everywhere and have to miss out on some amazing things. Last night’s Coca-Cola’s 125th anniversary in NYC was one of them. The world’s most beloved beverage, first enjoyed on May 8, 1886, celebrated the momentous milestone by throwing a great party to launch a commemorative book and iPad app published by Assouline, the purveyor of the most coveted fashion and art books worldwide.

Several VIPs were in attendance including Whitney Port (The Hills, The City), Kelly Bensimon (The Real Housewives of New York) and Adam Lippes (Owner & Designer of ADAM). They along with other guests were served with Coca-Cola infused hors’devours such as Coca-Cola glazed lamb skewers. Sonnier & Castle also provided Coca-Cola cupcakes. For beverages, Cuffs & Buttons mixologists crafted Coca-Cola and slow-aged Nicaraguan Flor de Caña rum cocktails, as well as popcorn & butter infused Cognac and Coca-Cola, titled the “Filmograph Redux”. Everything sounded so tasty.

The Coca-Cola iPad app will be available to download on iTunes on June 2nd. It allows you to enter the world of Coca-Cola with a curated selection of interactive animations, photographs, advertisements, and designs of the brand as well as exclusive video content, social history, film, and pop culture.

Oprah’s second to last episode aired yesterday and it did not disappoint! Part two of Oprah’s “Farewell Spectacular” was just as star-studded as the first. This time around, Tom Hanks passed the torch as host to friends of the daytime queen, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.

From there, the surprise guests rolled right in!

The great Maya Angelou read a personalized poem to Oprah while Alicia Keys accompanied her on the piano. X Factor’s Simon Cowell gave a ‘shaky’ introduction to Rosie O’Donnell who entertained the crowd with a hilarious rendition of “Fever.”

One of the bigger surprises had to be when Oprah’s longtime boyfriend, Stedman, walked onto the stage. For a man that is usually neither seen nor heard, it was nice to finally see him take the spotlight. Stedman gave a heartfelt speech on Oprah’s ability to change so many lives, adding that even today she still insists on bringing her own bagged lunch to work!

Christopher Meloni Leaves Law & Order SVU

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Noooooooooooooo!!! Say it isn’t so. According to TVLine.com Christopher Meloni aka Detective Elliot Stabler won’t be returning to solve sex crimes for “Law & Order SVU’s” 13th season. When NBC unveiled its new fall schedule last week, things looked optimistic that Meloni would return to SVU. Mariska Hargitay just inked a deal that would keep her on the show but in a smaller capacity- fewer episodes for the same money. Meloni on the other hand, was asking for a raise. Reports say negotiations were still underway as of late Tuesday (May 24), but things never materialized.

When it was reported Hargitay would be returning on a limited basis, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s name floated around as a potential successor to the badge. With Meloni, who’s a big draw for the show, leaving, series creator Dick Wolf has to find a new male lead. Since Meloni is quite popular, only “big names” are being considered as a replacement. I don’t care how big of a name they find, no one will ever take Meloni’s place. Both Mariska and him have been the two main protagonists of the show since its 1999 debut. And that’s the main reason why, SVU is the only Law & Order show still standing. Their chemistry is undeniable.
