On American Horror Story: Freak Show we’ve seen the cast cover David Bowie, Fiona Apple and Lana Del Rey so far. On last night’s episode, the FX anthology took on Nirvana. It was Evan Peters’ turn to step up to the mic to show off his vocal chops. I have to say, he did the grunge classic “Come As You Are” justice. I can’t wait for Kathy Bates to show what she’s got in an upcoming episode when she covers Hole’s “Doll Parts.”

If you’ve been scratching your head trying to figure out Ryan Murphy’s decision-making process for why he chooses the songs, he recently revealed his reasons to Entertainment Weekly. “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through,” Murphy shares. Kinda makes sense, doesn’t it?

If you missed Peters’ performance, give it a whirl below. And if you have, give it another spin. Definitely worth it. It’s one of my favorites this season, in addition to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal.”

Move over John Travolta!!! Matt Bomer rocks the pompadour like no other. Should Hollywood ever film a remake of Grease (and it probably eventually will), producers should really consider the White Collar actor. Dude would make an excellent Danny Zuko.

OUT.com gives an exclusive first look at the 37-year-old actor’s guest appearance on American Horror Story: Freak Show. Bomer makes his first appearance in a “very strange, odd” role on the November 5th episode which is being touted as the most horrendous hour in the anthology’s history.

“[He’s in] maybe one of the most disturbing things we’ve ever done and a true horror scene,” Ryan Murphy previously teased to the Hollywood Reporter. He’ll reportedly share the screen with Michael Chiklis and Finn Wittrock. Based on the photo above, it appears his character finds himself in Twisty The Clown’s hideout in the woods. What brings him there? Is it hoping for too much that Wittrock and Bomer make out ;)

Excited for Bomer to get a little freaky? Any predictions on what his character will be up to? Sound off below.

The 41-year-old entertainer recently revealed he passed on a role that would’ve seen his husband David Burtka and himself playing the slain gay couple in Murder House. Neil Patrick Harris will finally get his second chance to appear on American Horror Story.

It’s been confirmed that Harris and Burtka will guest star on Freak Show. Harris will pop up in the last two episodes as a chameleon salesman, while his better half will appear in the season finale. Burtka’s part hasn’t been revealed yet but it will involve Jessica Lange’s character.

This isn’t the first time NPH has appeared in a Ryan Murphy production. He popped up in Glee‘s first season finale. That role earned him an Emmy for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. Will lightning strike again?

Neil and David aren’t the only ones recently announced to appear on Freak Show. Find out which Asylum alum is returning below.

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.
