Another season of So You Think You Dance premieres tomorrow. Can you believe it’s the tenth season? It just seems like yesterday when the dancing competition began. In its inaugural season, it was all about crowning America’s Best Dancer. Realizing it was just one big popularity contest, it quickly changed to America’s favorite dancer. For the purpose of this post, it’s all about crowning America’s hottest dancer. My kind of contest.
Over the years, FOX’s dancing competition has featured a bevy of flexible studs, dropping it like it’s hot while shirtless and sweaty. Every season there seems to be one or a couple male contestants that captivate the hearts and eyes of teenage girls and horny gay men everywhere. I decided to go back through all the seasons and pick the Top 15 hottest male dancers to ever compete on the show. Will recently-anointed winner Chehon Wespi-Teschopp make the cut? One particular season dominated my list, owning all Top 3 slots. Find out which one and my HOTTEST pick below.
Tonight, Jeff Probst reveals the winner of Survivor Caramoan: Fans vs Favorites II. I can’t believe he’s about to do this for the 26th time. The season started out slow, but is one of the more memorable iterations to date. With Brandon Hantz’s epic meltdown, Malcolm Freberg’s insane immunity idol stunt at tribal council and Brenda’s heartwrenching blindside, this season had it all. I thought it was a perfect time to rotate this post and squeeze in this season’s hottie, Eddie Fox, on the list. See where he falls in line.
While the purpose of the game is to Outwit, Outlast and Outplay everyone, there is a far greater prize to be won. Who’s the hottest Survivor guy ever? Since the pool of male hotness was so abundant, I had to split up my list- those who made the jury and those who didn’t. If you’re a regular reader of Homorazzi.com, you might’ve already read my The 10 Hottest Survivor Guys NOT To Make The Jury post, if not, check it out now.
It’s always interesting to see which of the guys end up being my Survivor Man Crush of the season. Sometimes, the ones I find hottest at the beginning, I lose interest in. While the ones who I’m not attracted too initially, only get sexier as each episode airs. Some guys just look hotter with a bit of scruff, more tanned and emaciated. I know you agree with me. The list hasn’t been updated with anyone from the current season…yet. So without further ado, let the countdown begin.
Not only is today Homorazzi.com’s Alex’s birthday but it’s the original American Idol winner’s as well. So Happy Birthday to both divas. Can you believe the OG Idol is turning 31 today? Where did the time go? It seems just like yesterday when Kelly Clarkson was belting out Celine Dion songs in front of Simon Cowell and starring in From Justin to Kelly. Memba that hot mess?
In honor of Kelly’s birthday, I thought I’d share my Top 5 Clarkson songs to date. With five studio albums and a greatest hits compilation to her credit and three Grammys, narrowing it down proved very difficult. Do I go with perky Kelly, angry Kelly, pop-urban Kelly or ballad Kelly. After casting your votes in our poll below, keep reading to find out which Clarkson tracks are my favorite.
Happy belated 50th birthday to my beloved Vanessa Williams. The gorgeous actress turned golden yesterday on March 18th. In honor of this milestone birthday, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane and highlight her singing career. Most people know her for playing the wickedly delicious Wilhelmina Slater. Before she landed that role on Ugly Betty, Williams was the first African-American Miss America and had a successful recording career.
When topless photos were sold to Penthouse Magazine and later published, Vanessa became embroiled in a huge controversy that overshadowed her reign. Shortly after the issue hit the stands, she stepped down due to pressure from the organization. Interesting fact, the photos were first offered to Hugh Hefner for Playboy Magazine but he turned them down for the following reason:
“Vanessa Williams is a beautiful woman. There was never any question of our interest in the photos. But they clearly weren’t authorized and because they would be the source of considerable embarrassment to her, we decided not to publish them. We were also mindful that she was the first black Miss America.” – Hugh Hefner
Who knew Hefner was a classy guy? Before facing the embarrassing unauthorized photos, Williams’ Miss America reign caused her major stress, due to the numerous death threats and hate mail she received because of the color of her skin. Can you believe this was just a little less than 30 years ago?
After stepping down, she took time out of the spotlight to regroup. Fast forward a few years later, she decided to pursue her passion for singing. She secured a record deal and released her debut album, The Right Stuff in 1988. The rest as they say, is history. Though Vanessa, nowadays, is mainly known for her acting career, she scored a few major hits on the Billboard charts in the late 80s and 90s. I narrowed down her discography to highlight, IMHO, her best five songs. Let me know if you agree.
It’s week two of American Idol Season 12 and I thought this was a perfect time to post this article. Nothing makes me tune out more than when a contestant reveals they’ve chosen a song that’s been covered to death on Idol. Or even worse, a title so closely associated with another previous contestant, trying to match perfection would be a monumental task. “Alone” by Carrie Underwood, anyone?
Given the show’s long history, fans have been subjected to several songs so overused that the mere sight of them on paper, makes me vomit. You’d think with how much money the FOX singing competition rakes in, they could afford more songs and NOT limit Idol contestants to a rumored small selection list. Hopefully, this year’s crop of wannabe superstars have done their homework and discovered Idol fans don’t want to hear any of the following songs this season or the next.
Note to The X Factor and The Voice producers, this list applies to you as well. Picking fresher songs is one way to steal diehard Idol fans over. Without further ado, check out my Top 10 songs that have been so overplayed, I never want to hear them on Idol ever again. Be sure to post your comments afterward.
January is here and you know what that means. It’s time for ABC’s guilty pleasure dating show to return. That’s right, I’m talking about The Bachelor. Yup, I’m a glutton for punishment and enjoy this often cringe-worthy reality show. For me, it’s not so much about being a hopeless romantic and hoping true love is found. But rather, it’s the “journey” that’s exciting to watch. I’m not talking about the over-the-top dates either, but mostly the seemingly sane women go crazy. What possesses a woman to cry their eyes out over a guy they’ve known for just a couple of days and in some instances a couple of hours, is beyond me. It’s so silly, yet so riveting to watch.
While most of the guys aren’t worth shedding a tear for, there are a few that are definitely worth getting involved in a catfight over. I’ve gone through all sixteen seasons (can you believe there have been that many) and ranked the Top 10 Hottest Bachelors to ever give out roses on the ABC show. I will admit, I haven’t watched all the seasons but watched my fair share. Check out my updated rankings below and see if you agree with my choices. You might be surprised on a couple of omissions. See where new Bachelor Sean Lowe compares with the rest.
Rihanna hasn’t scored a No. 1 album yet on Billboard, but she just chalked up her 12th chart topper on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100. With “Diamonds” she now ties Madonna and the Supremes for the fourth-most No. 1s in the chart’s 54-year history. Holding the record for most No. 1′s are The Beatles with 20 chart leaders. Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12) and The Supremes (12) all trail John, Paul, George and Ringo. Rihanna previously tied with Whitney Houston with 11 before surpassing the “I Will Always Love You” singer with “Diamonds”.
While Rihanna doesn’t sell as many albums as a few of her compatriots, there is no denying she’s a hit-making machine. Rihanna is definitely the poster child of today’s music landscape. With digital downloads making singles both affordable and easy to purchase, it’s all about singles these days and not so much about the album. All you need is a couple of hit singles and fill up the rest of the album with filler.
Very few artists these days carefully put out well-thought albums with great concepts and attention to the fluidity from track to track. Enough of me sounding like an old man reminiscing about the good old days, let’s check out all of Rihanna’s chart toppers. Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of the post to see my ranking of all her hits.
It’s a good thing Mario Lopez scored a new hosting gig and Randy Jackson secured his seat on the American Idol judging panel. Otherwise they’d find themselves in the unemployment line like JC Chasez and Lil Mama. After seven seasons, MTV is pulling the plug on its dance competition show, America’s Best Dance Crew. In its hey day, the Jackson-produced reality show topped the 12-34 demo for the network, but eventually declined. With Jersey Shore, The Hills and ABDC all leaving the network in recent years, it’s definitely impressive The Real World is still kicking around. Shocking really.
“We are grateful to Randy Jackson and Warner Horizon for having brought our audience seven amazing seasons of dance with ABDC and look forward to more successful and dynamic entertaining collaborations in the future.” MTV
When it first premiered, I couldn’t get enough of the show, but lost interest. Truth be told, I had no idea it was still on. I definitely zoned out after Season 3. If you’re like me and enjoyed the glory days of ABDC, MTV aired The Top 10 Performances of All Time before the show’s fourth season premiere. Check out what they deemed the best of the best below.
