The Winner Of X-Factor Is…

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Last night, UK’s popular talent competition X Factor crowned its series 7 winner and the gloves were off. The night opened with a performance of all the acts from the series singing with the group Take That. Remember them? With that, Part 2 of the finale began.

The first performance was from Matt Cardle singing Firework by Katy Perry. Listening and watching, I couldn’t help but cringe at his tone and pitch problems with the song that was clearly out of his range. However, by the end all the stops were pulled when violinist and dancers came on stage and streamers fell from the sky to give his performance an explosive kick. The audience seemed to love it and so did the judges who gave him a standing ovation.

Second up was boy band One Direction. If you haven’t been watching the show, they are a group of young men with slick vocals, adorable smiles and a few Justin Bieber haircuts. They perform Torn by Natalie Imbruglia. Its a great performance and judge Simon Cowell is loving on it. With strong harmonies and a good look, its no wonder many think they may be the first group to win X Factor.

Rebecca Ferguson rounded off the competition with her rendition of Sweet Dreams by Annie Lennox. It starts off slower tempo but as the song continues, it picks up leaving everyone on the feet. The judges loved it as well including her mentor, Cheryl Cole who said that Rebecca did so well and did it all on her own.

Really, JWoww? Really?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Looks like JWoww is following Snooki and The Situation in coming out with her own book about dating advice. I’m guessing these books are supposed to be comic reads because they have to know that we’ve seen their love life on Jersey Shore. She got dumped for getting too friendly with her costars, among others on the show, and she’s currently in a war with an ex who claims she owes him hundreds of thousands of dollars for being her business manager. Sounds like an expert to me.

Jenni Farley, her real name, is coming out with “The Rules According to JWoww,” this coming February. The book promises to give you “shore-tested secrets on landing a mint guy, staying fresh to death, and kicking competition to the curb”. The only thing that’s probably accurate about that promise is that the classy gal has likely literally kicked (or punched) the competition onto a curb.

Some of the tips include “Learn how to spot a man whore a mile away,” Rule No. 17 Bust his balls a little,” Rule No 53, “Hair belongs on your head, nowhere else.”

Brandon Mychal Smith Likely Out Of SWTS

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Last Monday on Skating With The Stars, Disney star Brandon Mychal Smith had the worst day of his life. After a great week of rehearsals, he fell ill Monday morning. Throwing up and having trouble breathing, the star was rushed to the hospital unbenounced to his partner until she saw him being loaded into the ambulance.

Sources close to the the Sonny With A Chance actor say that he is still under the weather and having trouble breathing. He has been skating on the ice but has had to take multiple breaks due to fatigue. The doctors are heavily monitoring the situation but it appears that Brandon may not continue with the show in the best interest of his health.

If Scissor Sisters lead singer, Jake Shears, had his way, “Invisible Light” would’ve been the lead cut from their third studio album, “Night Work” instead of “Fire With Fire”. Shears revealed this tidbit of info in a recent interview:

“That’s the heartbreak about it – it’s something I always follow, always going with my instincts,” Jake Shears said. “Because, if you put something out when you’re following your instincts and it fails, it’s all on you. ‘Invisible Light’ should have been the first single.”

In the end, the music video for “Invisible Light” is here at last. Better late than never. Unlike the campy video for their last single “Any Which Way“, this new visual is far more edgy. None of the band members show up in the music clip. Instead the music video is filled with images, some people might find disturbing and offensive. Nicolas Mendez directed the clip. Depending on your workplace, the video could be deemed NSFW as it contains female nudity and graphic violent images. So proceed with caution.

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

WOW, is all I have to say. The voting for the first round of our “Man Crush 2010 Showdown” exceeded our expectations. Over 22,000 votes were cast in just seven days. After all the seesawing back and forth, Scott Herman bested all others and has a secured a spot in the finals. Runner-up Henry Cavill came in second, losing by only 600 votes from first place.

All is not lost for Cavill fans. Depending on how the rest of the two remaining rounds go, he has a shot at two wild card slots. The finals will have the winner of each of the three rounds and the two crushes who had the highest number of votes but didn’t advance. With over 12000 votes cast, Cavill has a good shot of earning a finals berth and getting a little payback.

If you enjoyed “Man Crush 2010 Showdown” Round 1, you’re going to love Round 2. It has even sexier guys than the previous set. The list includes a trio of werewolves, a “Teenage Dream” and someone who hangs out with wild animals. Dangerous and sexy. Yum.

Another season of The Amazing Race wrapped up last night. Three teams remained:

  • Jill & Thomas: The Dating Couple
  • Brook & Claire: The Shopping Channel Hosts
  • Nat & Kat: The Doctors

Each of the remaining teams all had their ups & downs, but they’ve all earned their spot in the final three. In this final lag of the race, they leave South Korea and fly to Los Angeles where one of them will win the Amazing Race.
Jill & Thomas are determined to win, but most people want Nat & Kat or Brook & Claire to win since no all female team has ever won the game.

This should get the buzz going. After announcing they were to tie the knot a while back, the two took the time to cozy up for the camera to get their engagement photos out for the family and of course the public eye. The photos were taken back on November 25 in the Cornwall Room in St. James’s Palace by photographer Mario Testino.

Mario was hand picked by the couple to take the special photos. Prince William has worked with him before on a few occasions so the couple only saw it fitting to have photograph them to celebrate their upcoming nuptials. Kate Middleton wore an elegant white Reiss dress with Links earrings and William looked quite dapper in a Turnbull and Asser suit. Its also been said that Kate did her own makeup for the 2-hour shoot. I think she looks beautiful.

Narnia Voyages To The Top Of The Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

The third story in The Chronicles of Narnia made a splash at the box office this weekend with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I happened to have seen the film and loved it, so it’s no surprise to me that it did so well, with a $24.5 millon opening weekend. Nothing like a little magical movie every now and then, right? Tommy, on the other hand, checked out The Tourist and only gave it a 2.5 out of 5 rating, and considering the caliber of the lead stars (Angelina Jolie and Jonny Depp), it wasn’t that strong of an opening at $17 million.

A lot of the remaining movies weren’t new at the box office this weekend. Tangled came in third with over $14.5 million, bringing it’s total to $115,622,873. Insanity! Harry Potter came in fourth bringing its new total to over $257 million which is even crazier. I guess it was all movies for the family that ruled the box office this weekend, and that will probably be the same as we move closer into the holiday season.

Did you watch any films this weekend?
