Praise sweet baby Jesus!!! Sam Heughan and all his sexy Scottish swagger aren’t going away anytime soon. Starz just renewed its hit series for not one, but two seasons.

“The world of Jamie and Claire is expansive and emotionally complex. The audience has rewarded ‘Outlander’ with their praise and loyalty, and we know we will deliver the best seasons yet in the years ahead,” said Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg, Presidents, U.S. Programming and Production, Sony Pictures Television. “Starz has been an incredible partner and has truly helped shape this into one of the most iconic premiere series on the air today.”

Outlander, which is currently in the middle of its sophomore run, will now last until Season 4 at the very least. Season 3 will be based on Diana Gabaldon’s third of eight books in the Outlander series, Voyager, while Season 4 will be based on the fourth book in the series, Drums of Autumn.

The renewal shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Season 2 premiere set a record for the network. Do you watch the drama series? Declare your love below.

martin-solveig-tkay-maidza

Mark my words!!! This infectious track is going to be a major club anthem this summer. Martin Solveig has crafted himself a definite smash.

The French record producer enlisted the vocal talents of rising Australian rapper Tkay Maidza for “Do It Right.” He also wisely chose to incorporate the instrument-of-the-moment, steel drums, with his intoxicating slinky beat. The clanging cowbells are also a nice touch.

Watch the slick visual below directed by Monsieur L’Agent. The colorful building they filmed at is absolutely striking. You have to check it out.

zoe-saldana-tlc-lip-sync-battle

Lip Sync Battle is about to go intergalactic. The Spike TV show will air an one-hour special next Thursday featuring an epic battle between Star Trek Beyond’s Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto. It’s going to be one for the ages for sure.

Based on the quick teaser, Saldana definitely didn’t just come to play. She brought on TLC’s Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas to join her during one of her performances. Gotta say, Zoe does a decent job of channeling her inner Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Someone really wants to win.

If Quinto wants to beat Saldana, hopefully he also has a celebrity cameo up his sleeves. I wouldn’t be surprised if Missy Elliott popped up. After all, he attempts to dress up as the “Get Ur Freak On” rapper. Attempt being the operative word. Quinto should never do drag again 😉 Check out the promo below.

Watch out Fifth Harmony and Little Mix! You might have some competition on your hands courtesy of Kelly Rowland. The 35-year-old former Destiny’s Child singer just released the first promo pic of her yet-unnamed girl group. And based on first impression, they look pretty fierce. At the very least, they don’t look like a trainwreck 😉

Shyann Roberts, Kristal Lyndriette, Brienna DeVlugt, Ashly Williams, and Gabrielle Carreiro were assembled by Rowland on her BET reality show Chasing Destiny. Unlike some other reality shows, Kelly appears to be invested in making the group into a success. “These ladies are very talented and they’re very, very ambitious and excited, and I’m ready for the world to hear them,” she told Chicago’s You & Me This Morning.

Their first single won’t be released by Epic Records until later this year, but you can check out their wicked harmonies on their sensational cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” Give it a listen below and be sure to keep an eye out for this promising act.

barbra-streisand-2016-tonys

Mark your calendar folks. On June 12, Barbra Streisand makes a triumphant return to the Tonys stage. CBS just announced the 74-year-old legend will present at the 70th Tony Awards. Too bad, she’s not performing.

Believe it or not, this will mark her first appearance at the ceremony since 1970 when she received the “Star of the Decade Award.” The homecoming is perfect timing since Babs is releasing her third Broadway duets album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, after completing her nine-city North American Tour in August.

James Corden is hosting the 2016 Tonys and will feature appearances by Cate Blanchett, Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Carole King, Audra McDonald, Saoirse Ronan, Patina Miller, Nathan Lane and Oprah Winfrey. If you’re a betting man, I’d place it all on Hamilton. The mega-hit has 16 nominations and will no doubt convert many of them to wins.

sense8-make-out-session

Sense8 Season 2 can’t come here soon enough. Seriously!!! My friends better not even think of contacting me once Netflix uploads the new episodes. I’ll be off the grid for at least a couple of days.

Over the weekend, the cast were seen celebrating Sao Paulo Pride in Brazil. And by all accounts, it appears everyone had a gay ole time. Especially the men. Brian J. Smith, Miguel Angel Silvestre and Max Riemelt all participated in a little tonsil hockey with each other during the event.

While it’s pretty obvious, some of the makeout sessions were for future episodes, in some instances, it appears it was just for fun. I don’t blame them. I’d gladly make out with any of them, with or without a camera filming 😉

Check out plenty of pics and videos below from the parade.

Euro 2016, which is a month-long European soccer championship tournament taking place in France, kicks off in just a few days. To get into the spirit, Warner Bros UK just released a new Suicide Squad promo, highlighting the villains as if they were professional athletes.

Each member receives a soccer field position and some statistical info that’s fun and somewhat informative. Not surprisingly, Will Smith’s Deadshot is the center forward while Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker team up to become an “unorthodox center midfield duo.”

Suicide Squad invades theaters on August 5. Check out the whimsical promo below.
