Lunchtime Poll: Does 'Nutcracker in 3D' need dancing?

Some elements of the trailer for Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky’s The Nutcracker in 3D make sense: Elle Fanning plays a blank slate/child, Nathan Lane is a kindly uncle, and John Turturro is a Rat King. Virtually everything else is jarring! Rat King’s rage blackout at 1:42, the Nutcracker’s nickname “NC” (-17?), a killer helicopter that can jog. What strikes me as the oddest thing — other than the fact that NC’s face is a dead ringer for the orange lady in the classic Sesame Street clip “Orange Sings Carmen,” — is the lack of dancing. Does it even matter? Does anything matter anymore? Watch the trailer and vote below. READ FULL STORY

'Real Housewives': Teresa hosting Delaware table-flipping contest

File this under Horrifying But Hypnotic (and Things That Are Classy): The cash-strapped Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is hosting a party at the Funkey Monkey — the self-proclaimed “hottest night club to hit Wilmington!” — on Saturday, Sept. 25. According to the club’s web site, she’ll be taking photographs and signing copies of her book, Skinny Italian. There will also be a table-flipping contest “for all the ladies!” with great prizes and giveaways. How does one win a table-flipping contest? Is it by the amount of destruction one does, like how many table settings you send crashing to the floor? Or is it all style points? In which case, we’d prepare to recreate the bleep-filled, Danielle-focused tirade that accompanied Teresa’s memorable table flip on the show. I want to say “good for her” for having a sense of humor, but even though that sort of behavior makes great TV, I don’t know that I’d want to celebrate it in real life… Which is why if I lived in Wilmington, I would just watch the contest and not enter.

UPDATE: Funkey Monkey owner Bill Stradley tells EW he has not decided on the criteria for the table-flipping contest, which is simply part of his “theme night,” but says he’ll have Giudice judge it. “It’s harmless,” Stradley stresses, noting that he was just having this conversation with Bravo. “She personally is not gonna flip a table. It’s not in any way demeaning or degrading.”

'Dancing at the Movies': What's your go-to movie dance routine?

You know that scene in a movie where everyone breaks out into a perfectly choreographed dance routine at a moment’s notice? (Ahem, the She’s All ThatFunk Soul Brother” prom scene, anyone? Why would anyone do that dance? More importantly, why was that song ever popular?) Now you can relive each one of those magical, yet confusing, moments thanks to this video, “Dancing at the Movies,” which includes some of the best cinematic dance moments of all time, cut to the soundtrack of Footloose. Go ahead and check out the clip below, and try not to cut loose. READ FULL STORY

Dancing Merengue Dog better than how many of the new 'DWTS' contestants?

The video of a dog (Carrie) dancing with a partner is making the rounds today, and if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and watch below. Carrie has apparently been dancing for years (as evidenced by this TV clip that shows Modern Family star Sofia Vergara witnessing a performance and this one), but I think the raw street performance embedded below is required viewing to truly appreciate the level of talent we’re talking about. It’s when Carrie tilts her head to spin under the man’s arm and her raised paw that gets me.  READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Britney Spears jazzed to find out dolphins are just gay sharks

“All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down.” –@britneyspears

Now that this Brit-on-Brit shot (Heather Morris vs. Britney Spears…”Glee Against The Music”?) is circling the Twitpic Ocean like a hungry gay shark, we are about a billion times more excited for Glee‘s Britney episode. Even though we can’t count.

'Dancing With the Stars': Let's brainstorm a dream cast for season 11!

In a stunning marriage of the skanky and the sparkly, ABC will announce the season 11 cast of Dancing With the Stars during Aug. 30′s episode of Bachelor Pad. (Skanky and sparkly are not mutually exclusive, of course.) It’ll be a creepy mass wedding co-sponsored in part by Macy’s and Valtrex. What a fun, sexy time for trashy reality TV!

As usual, ABC will not leak anything before the announcement, even if I lovingly prod the DWTS publicists through the Internet with my fringed magic wand. But here are some rumored season 11 hoofers anyway: READ FULL STORY

'So You Think You Can Dance' instant react: Season 7 champion revealed!


STOP! If you haven’t seen tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance finale stop reading now. I’m serious. After the jump, I’ll reveal the winner. Now I’ll pause and give you a second to find something else to read on EW.com. [Update: Read the full recap]

Okay, to the rest of you: Just like my colleague Adam B. Vary, I finished last night’s episode unsure of who was going to be crowned America’s favorite dancer.


Ellen DeGeneres to dance with tWitch on 'SYTYCD' finale

Ellen-Twitch-danceImage Credit: Kelsey McNeal/Fox; Andrew Eccles/jbgphoto.comYes, it’s happening: On tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance finale, Ellen DeGeneres will recreate injured contestant Alex Wong‘s hip-hop routine with tWitch. The surprise was first reported by Perez Hilton (and now confirmed by Fox and DeGeneres’ publicist). The routine, to “Outta Your Mind” by Lil Jon featuring LMFAO, is considered to be the finest hip-hop routine ever performed on the show, and featured Wong working with his shrink (tWitch) to overcome his ballet baggage so he could hit hard on the Tabitha and Napoleon-choreographed number.

DeGeneres responded to a fan’s prediction that she’d be Wong’s sub with the following Twitter tease last night: “I like it! I wonder if it WILL happen?” This afternoon she followed up with: “#SYTYCD finale tonight. Broke my heart when Alex had to drop out. Tonight, I do something and I hope it makes him smile.”

We can’t wait to see this. What about you?

Lunchtime Poll: Would you be caught dead singing Marc Anthony's 'I Need to Know' in 2010?

In an effort to post as many items related to the year 1999 as possible, I’ve decided today’s Lunchtime Poll should be about Marc Anthony.

Mandi came by as I was writing last night’s news brief that Anthony will guest-star as a love interest for Jada Pinkett Smith on TNT’s HawthoRNe, and we both immediately — without even agreeing to do this — launched into a snap ‘n’ sway singalong of Anthony’s 1999 single “I Need to Know.” We sang the first half of the chorus just fine, but after “Tell me baby girl, cause I need to know/I need to know…I need to know,” our once-hearty vocals softened to a gibberish mumbling, sort of an open-mouthed hum. We thought there were other lyrics to the chorus that we had forgotten. But no! The second half of the chorus for “I Need to Know” is exactly the same as the first half. We’re such idiots! That’s the last time we’ll overestimate Marc Anthony’s lyricism, promise. We’ve made a huge mistake. Still, any impromptu dance party is VERY worthwhile.

Now there’s something I need to know. Tell me, PopWatch-reading guuuurrrrl, ’cause I need to know. I need to know. I need to know. God, it just never ends.
