Jessica Lange’s much-hyped cover of Lana Del Rey didn’t disappoint. Her alter ego Elsa Mars performed “Gods And Monsters” on last night’s Halloween-themed episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Lange served major Marlene Dietrich diva realness during her performance. She can definitely rock that feather boa like no other. Ryan Murphy wasn’t exaggerating with his description teasing the number.

As glamorous as it was, I’m still giving the edge to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal” cover on episode two. Watching one twin providing background vocals for the other was everything. Do you agree? If you missed last night’s episode, Lange’s number was a definite must-watch. If you caught it, why not watch it again below. Enjoy.

Recently, rumors of Gwyneth Paltrow and Neil Patrick Harris possibly guest starring on American Horror Story: Freak Show surfaced. If it’s true, hopefully Harris doesn’t let this opportunity slip through his fingers.

When asked which role was the one that got away, the 41-year-old actor revealed it was for Murder House. In an interview with SiriusXM Entertainment, he explains the gay couple murdered in the house played by Zachary Quinto and Teddy Sears was originally offered to his husband David Burtka and himself.

In the end, it’s not like it hurt his career. NPH has done quite well for himself, winning a Tony recently and being named the host of the 2015 Academy Awards. Find out below why he turned it down even though his hubby wanted to do it.

Some longtime viewers of American Horror Story have taken issue with Ryan Murphy changing the show’s theme music for Freak Show. Turns out there’s a reason why.

Season 3 Voice standout Melanie Martinez released her debut EP earlier this year. One track featured on the well-received offering was “Carousel.” Being a fan of the show, Martinez reached out to the show’s producers about using her spooky gypsy-sounding track once she heard of the upcoming theme. A couple of days before the promo aired, the network finally reached out to her. Naturally, she was ecstatic “The whole thing was just crazy,” she told HuffPo.

Melanie just released the accompanying visual for “Carousel.” Naturally it’s set in a carnival environment filled with all things spooky. Directed by Adam Donald, Melanie chases a buff blond guy who ends up deceiving her. Though the clip and beat have an eerie feel, the lyrics are quite sad, comparing the search for true love to going round and round aimlessly on a carousel. Give the entertaining visual a watch below.

Did you love watching Jessica Lange spectacularly cover David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” on the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show? If so, I’m sure you felt the same way about episode two’s musical number.

On this week’s episode it was Sarah Paulson’s turn to take the spotlight. She gave a flawless rendition of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Love that she was able to provide her own background vocals due to having two heads. The whole thing was so whacky, it was awesome. I can’t wait to see what else Ryan Murphy has up his sleeves.

After what I felt was a rather slow premiere, the second episode had me captivated. Love the introduction of Michael Chiklis and Angela Bassett’s characters. And how insane is Finn Wittrock on the show? He makes Twisty The Clown absolutely sane. Speaking of which, I change my tune on how freaky Murphy’s clown is. The visual of him without his mouthpiece was terrifying. I’m definitely going to have nightmares because of that.

Did you enjoy the second episode? Who’s your favorite character so far? Did Paulson do Apple proud with her cover? Sound off below.

FX Renews American Horror Story For Fifth Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows
american-horror-story-season-5

FX has only aired one episode of the latest season of American Horror Story, but it’s already renewed it for a fifth season. Not surprising given that Freak Show set a record as the most-watched TV episode in the network’s history. It generated 10 million total viewers (6.54 million 18-49), according to Live+3 numbers, besting Coven‘s numbers last year of 7.27 million by 38 percent.

Ryan Murphy teased he planted clues for Season 5′s theme in the first two episodes of Freak Show. Some fans predict it could revolve around aliens given this year’s locale of Jupiter and Jessica Lange’s character’s last name of Mars. Do you have any theories?

Speaking of Lange, she previously stated the fourth installment of the popular FX anthology would be her last. Murphy recently revealed he’s hopefully he could convince Jessica to change her tune. Would the show be the same without Lange? Sound off below.

Taking a page from his other series, Glee, Ryan Murphy will be uploading music from American Horror Story: Freak Show to iTunes. He revealed due to popular demand, a downloadable version of Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life On Mars” will be available soon.

If you thought Lange’s performance on the premiere was fantastic, Murphy teases her Lana Del Rey cover featured in an upcoming episode will be “something to behold.” Kurt Cobain’s music will also be featured on the new season.

Did you watch the AHS: Freak Show premiere last night? I’m reserving full judgement after the next episode. The 90-minute premiere was a little too slow-paced for my liking. Also, Twisty the Clown wasn’t as scary as I had anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, he was creepy but he was a bit of a letdown after all the hype.

Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Lange were as fantastic as usual. Someone please give Paulson an Emmy statue please. It’s long overdue for her amazing work on the series. I can’t wait for the other ‘freaks’ to be introduced next episode which also happens to be 90 minutes long. Relive Lange’s performance below and share your thoughts on the premiere afterward.

We’re less than a week away from the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show. Who else can’t wait til Wednesday, October 8 to see what other insane things Ryan Murphy has in store for us?

I joined the AHS bandwagon a little late and only began during last season’s Coven. In preparation for Freak Show, I binged watched Murder House and Asylum last weekend and enjoyed both much more than I thought I would. I have to say Murder House and Coven are my favorites. That whole asylum setting is too freaky for my liking. It’s amazing how Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and the rest can so easily inhabit such vastly different characters for each season.

FX just released the main title sequence for Freak Show. As expected, it’s jam-packed with creepy visuals. But how does it stack up when compared to the previous iterations? Watch all clips below and be sure to cast your vote for the creepiest opening credits.

At long last Ryan Murphy has bestowed us with the first look at the season’s main antagonist Twisty The Clown. As if clowns weren’t scary enough. This one could give Stephen King’s Pennywise in It and Ronald McDonald himself a run for their money as the most frightening clown in history.

The creepy trailer also gives new footage of Sarah Paulson playing conjoined twins Bette and Tot Tattler. It shows them joining Jessica Lange’s traveling freak show in Jupiter, Florida with one commenting they’re “entering the gates of hell.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on October 8 on FX. Check out the promo titled “Monsters Among Us” below.
