As extreme skier Rory Bushfield (pictured, with Baywatch‘s Nicole Eggert) said, “I don’t think any skier would be impressed if I got beat by a couple of actors.” So who, in the hilarious words of Joey Lawrence’s cohost Charissa Thompson, was crowned “the greatest celebrity diver of all-time in our first-ever Splash grand finale?” READ FULL STORY »
Tag: Ouch! That Was My Ear! (1-10 of 168)
During Thursday’s Oklahoma City auditions episode (read my full recap here), colorful wackaloon Zoanette Johnson, “19,” brutally murdered the national anthem to the unfathomable delight of the American Idol judges, her pitchy runs eventually knocking featherweight pleasure hub Keith Urban onto the floor. At least she didn’t lip-sync it? READ FULL STORY »
Rumor has it that new American Idol judge Mariah Carey became infuriated and hung up the phone when producers called to tell her they were in talks with Nicki Minaj to join the season 12 judging panel. Considering a TMZ report is practically fiction, I thought I’d embellish this juicy, totally plausible storyline in the saga of No One Knows WTF Is Going On With Idol (And Do They Care?). It’s one of the summer’s most lukewarm reads!
Thanks to the video for Mimi and Nicki’s classic 2010 collaboration “Up Out My Face,” here’s how I picture this all going down…. READ FULL STORY »
Dear contestants of American Idol,
Why do you think singing an Adele song is a good idea, ever? I understand her music moves you and you trust that voters love her music, too, because her album 21 has now spent the most weeks at No. 1 since Prince’s Purple Rain. But this is a woman whose voice Beyoncé has described as GOD’S. Why isn’t she on the Do Not Touch list along with Whitney Houston and Celine Dion, at least while the album is still so hot? The surest way to show that you are not ready to win six Grammys in one night is to sing one of her tunes. (And if you think you are ready, then you’re too cocky for week 1 of the live shows.) Worst-case scenario, you’re heat-less Eben Franckewitz singing “Set Fire to the Rain.” Best-case scenario, you’re Elise Testone singing “One and Only” and we’re saying, “Okay, she pulled that off better than Jen Hirsch” (who sang it as well last night — really?), but we wouldn’t rush to buy it because, again, we already own Adele’s version and you didn’t top it.

The great Lana Del Rey debate rages on. While many have come to the defense of the singer since her much talked-about performances during this weekend’s Saturday Night Live (including host Daniel Radcliffe), others still maintain that the controversial music sensation is one of the worst guests in the show’s history, if not the very worst. (Juliette Lewis and Eliza Dushku seemed to think so. Heck, so did Brian Williams.)
Are people, like Radcliffe suggested, simply letting their personal feelings about Del Rey’s rise to fame cloud their judgment of her appearance? Or were her performances of “Video Games” and “Blue Jeans” quite simply that bad? I happen to be in the latter group of those who were downright flabbergasted by Del Rey’s warble-y, emotionless numbers and were left with burning questions, like: Who was this girl? Where did she come from? And why… why?! Watch her performance below and see what all the noise has been about: READ FULL STORY »
To be fair, Neil Patrick Harris already had a bit of an unfair advantage going in to today’s episode of The Price Is Right. Not only does the universally beloved star have daytime television experience (sorry, Snoop), but before his appearance for Celebrity Charity Week, NPH already got to hear those magic words “Come on down!” Well, technically, it was Barney Stinson who became the single greatest player in the history of the “original” Price Is Right after he won everything (including some sweet gifts for Marshall and Lily’s wedding) and met his “dad,” then-host Bob Barker. It was… well, you know.
So things were a little bit different this time around for the How I Met Your Mother actor. Though he did suit up for the occasion, Harris — who was playing for breast-cancer research organization the Noreen Fraser Foundation — served as something of a cohost to Drew Carey and helped his fellow contestants (a very un-Barney-like strategy) snag some most excellent prizes ($10,000!, a new car!), including the episode’s eventual champ Adam, by knowing things like the price for a cupcake maker and having an excellent strategy for the frustrating game Gas Money.
