Holy lookalike Batman. While the stand-ins for Beyonce, NeNe Leakes, Solange Knowles, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are a little busted up, the Mariah Carey impersonator is on point. Honestly at times, I thought I was looking at the real Mimi. I guarantee you will to. An impeccable job in casting indeed.

Todrick Hall previously filmed a Chicago parody featuring famed Disney characters performing “Cell Block Tango.” He once again looks to the musical for inspiration. But this time with a little Orange Is The New Black spice with Leakes as the HWIC (head warden in charge).

Watch the ladies explain what they exactly did to get them locked up. Here’s a little hint with Mariah’s crime. It has something to do with Ariana Grande’s ponytail. The Carey bit is the best, along with the Beyonce and Solange parts. Hall has another viral hit on his hands. Definitely check out “Cell Black Django” below.

After missing first place by just one point last year, the tension is on to see if Brooke Lynn can take the 2014 crown.  A list of contestants and all things pageant can be found at the website here.

So come hoot and holler with us if you’re in the Chicago area! It’s going to be a great time!

Adam Lambert doesn’t make his Glee debut for another week, but he’s already hanging out with one of its stars, Amber Riley aka Mercedes Jones. The 31-year-old singer kicks off Todrick Hall’s latest masterpiece, Spell Block Tango.

The YouTube sensation teamed up with Marlon Wayans’ new company “What The Funny” to produce a viral Halloween video. Not surprisingly, Disney characters are incorporated in the clip. Hall definitely has a hard-on for all things Mickey, doesn’t he? This time he allows a few of Disney’s most infamous villains to tell their side of their respective fairytale while set to the music of Chicago. It’s actually quite funny.

Along with Lambert and Riley, the clip features appearances by Blake McGrath, Pia Toscano, Cassie Scerbo, several hot shirtless models and Todrick himself. Check out Spell Block Tango below.

The newly-established National Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago just revealed its first round of inductees. The first-of-its-kind nonprofit’s mission is to preserve and highlight the history of gays and lesbians in sports on all levels, from Little League all the way up to the big leagues. With that being said, obviously the first few to make the cut are some high profile names in LGBT sports history. How else are you going to make headlines?

Not surprisingly, Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis made the cut. Also not shocking are the inclusions of tennis legend Martina Navratilova and Jason Collins who made headlines with his historic coming out in Sports Illustrated earlier this year. Somewhat eyebrow-raising is Ben Cohen’s addition. The former professional rugby player has been a longtime straight ally for gay rights. Do you think non-LGBT individuals should be added to the Hall of Fame? Be sure to sound off below after reading who else is being inducted in the Gay & Lesbian Sports Hall of Fame.

I realized that tomorrow, we hit our destination. It’s been a week. A full week in various cities and trapped in Beryl with two of my best friends and we still don’t hate each other. Last night I feel like we were all going through it a little, but like Steve said to me last night, it’s just so understandable for us to be absolutely exhausted at this point. You spend all day on the road, and then end up in a new city and feel the need to make the most of every minute, to do something as much as possible every second, and then you hit a wall and wonder why you’re such a crabby pants.

We did manage to have a hell of a lot of fun last night though. First stop in the Chicago scene in Lakeview was the ever popular Roscoe’s. Fantastic sprawling bar that felt like a cross of someone’s apartment and a modern saloon, the design of the place was fantastic from room to room, including a back dance floor and countless bars. The staff was phenomenal, and as I’m finding more and more with Chicago, the people are just effortlessly friendly.

Today we got the hell out of Omaha as soon as humanly possible. We all pretty much woke up in a foul mood, scowled at each other, and hugged it out later. But we got the car, packed up our luggage, and drove as far away from the Econolodge as we could in the shortest possible time we could.

Let me explain something about Bruce the cat. He is a lovely mild tempered angel of a feline, and his only fault is, he is a runner and a jumper. No windows are to be left open, no doors are to be left ajar. I just think Omaha really got to him, as it did with all of us, and as we drove across our first bridge out of the city, I think he must have peeked over Steve’s shoulder to see that the window locks weren’t on, and decided it a good idea to just end it all and lean his tiny paw on the back window button. Down it went. His father’s first reaction behind the wheel was to swerve to the right, in “save the cat” mode. Faye, frozen in fear of pushing a bag towards him, in turn knocking him out said window, yelled obscenities, and I gingerly, heart racing, turned around and squashed him down with my hand like a spider under a bar coaster, grabbing him by the scruff of his neck and throwing him into the front seat. I’m not gonna say we didn’t pull over, I’m not gonna say we didn’t have a good cry after the previous day we had, I’m also not going to say that we didn’t make ourselves feel better by belting Heart’s Greatest Hits at the top of our lungs until Des Moines. I will say Bruce is happy and purring on a window sill as we speak. And I am half a bottle deep.

2013 Oscars Will Honor Movie Musicals

In: Donovan, Movies

Typically, the musical numbers during the Oscar telecast are one big snoozefest. Even the producers think so and sometimes combine all the best nominated songs in one big medley to get them over with. Given the lame nominees in some years, I don’t blame them. That’s all about to change this year.

Craig Zadan and Neil Moran are producing the show and from the sounds of it, it’s going to be phenomenal. That is, if you’re a musical nut. They’ve already brought on Adele and Shirley Bassey as part of the tribute to James Bond’s 50th anniversary and enticed Barbra Streisand to perform at the Academy Awards after a 36 year absence. Now comes word a segment celebrating musicals from the past 10 years is on the program. That should come as no surprise given that Zadan produced the movie adaptations of Hairspray and Chicago, plus the classic Footloose and NBC’s Smash. Find out which musicals are being honored below.

While not as fantastic as last week’s Kiki Turkey Lurkey mashup, this musical number is pretty awesome in its own right. Kate Hudson is back with her deliciously bitter Cassandra July to show Rachel (Lea Michele) how it’s done. Not only did Cassandra seduce that insanely sexy Brody (Dean Geyer) from Rachel’s hands for a hot steamy session, but now she’s showing Rachel that she reigns supreme on the dance floor as well.

On the upcoming episode of Glee, titled “Swan Song“, Cassandra and Rachel perform “All That Jazz” from the hit musical Chicago. Dressed in their finest black dance attire, the ladies strut and shimmy their butts off while belting out the show-stopping number. As vocally superior Rachel is to Cassandra, I have to give the edge to the NYADA dance teacher. In this battle, the teacher definitely schools the pupil. Check out the jazzy battle below.
