'Hollywood Game Night': Ranking the freakishly fascinating facial mashups

Screen Shot 2013-08-22 at 5.02.29 PM

On Thursday’s Hollywood Game Night, the teams (Max Greenfield, Ellie Kemper, Kal Penn, and plebian Jill vs. Kenan Thompson, Minnie Driver, Angela Kinsey and plebe Dipal) participated in a riveting round of Celebrity Fusion — in which two celebs with a common name had their faces smeared into each other and presented as art. (So basically, Conan’s “If They Mated,” but on a show with a different title.) I’m VERY ashamed of how long it took me to guess the above beauty, but at least I didn’t say “Boy George..Carlin?” like poor JIll.

Doesn’t take much to fascinate me on a summer Friday! I’m gonna rank these creatures from least horrifying to most:

Oscars 2013: Elton John, Bono, Jim Carrey, Heidi Klum with table-talk, sour notes, giant steps


A fresh rhythm, more big-stage flair and a classic songbook were among the promises that accompanied the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night and it’s hard to imagine a better hook to catch the attention of the Federation – no, not the Star Trek thing, this one is the new celebrity super-group that gathered Sunday near Table No. 18 at Elton John’s annual Oscar viewing party.

Lip-sync-gate continues: Inaugural official says Beyonce didn't sing anthem live

Well, that settles it (maybe, possibly, probably not): According to CNN, an unnamed inaugural official has confirmed that Beyoncé lip-synched while performing the “Star-Spangled Banner” on Monday.

“Because she didn’t have time to rehearse with the Marine Band, she decided to use her recording with the Marine Band,” the official said, noting that the singer didn’t arrive in Washington D.C. until late Sunday night. The official doesn’t know why Beyoncé elected not to sing live — by all accounts, “she was spot on” in her pre-recording session, and “she’s actually a very good live singer.” There’s apparently no word on why Bey ripped out her earpiece mid-song, either.

'Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together' telethon was a classy and inspiring hour

Whether or not you found NBC’s Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together benefit telethon as “enormously entertaining” as host Matt Lauer promised it would be, it was a celebrity-packed hour of television that effectively reminded everyone of how devastating the damage has been while calling for action. A lot more people now know to text REDCROSS to 90999 or go to iTunes.com/redcross to donate money to disaster relief — plus we got to see Jimmy Fallon rock out with music legends. “Jimmy Fallon is a bold man to take the lead vocals from Steven Tyler, Bruce Springsteen, and Billy Joel,” Jon Stewart said of the all-star performance of “Under the Boardwalk,” which brought a little levity to the show.

Who's on your dream 'American Idol' judging panel?

Steven Tyler announced yesterday that he would not be returning as a judge to American Idol next season, and just moments ago Jennifer Lopez followed suit, announcing that the past season of Idol would be her last.

With Randy Jackson’s spot up in the air, the judging panel for the 12th season of the singing show staple is wide open. PopWatch got to brainstorming who we’d love to see in the judges’ (non-spinny) chairs.

'American Idol': Pia Toscano drops in and other top moments you didn't see on TV

Tonight’s American Idol was the first night the public could vote, the first night in front of a live audience, and the first time on a brand new stage at the studio in Los Angeles, and wait — is that Pia Toscano?!

I’d never been to an Idol live show before, so it was all new to me, but the new stage included a snaking pit with more room for the performers to strut around, and a cityscape montage reminiscent of the L.A. Law intro from the 80s. The judges were spiffed up in their finest — most remarkably, of course, J. Lo, fresh off that whole Oscar nipple confusion, in sky-high sparkly Louboutin heels and a skin-tight white sequin dress.

Today’s show didn’t feature any crazy audience antics or falls off the stage, but there were quite a few fun things you didn’t see on TV: READ FULL STORY

Steven Tyler doesn't miss a thing, confirms J. Lo had no nip slip at the Oscars

It was a busy night for the American Idol gang at the Oscars on Sunday night: Ryan Seacrest found himself on the receiving end of a Sacha Baron Cohen stunt, Jennifer Lopez brought the dreaded “wardrobe malfunction” back into our lexicon thanks to an alleged nip slip, and Randy Jackson cheered on Uggie from the comfort of his own home. (“You’re a dog, dawg!”)

So their AI cohort Steven Tyler, a former Academy Awards attendee and performer himself, had plenty to talk about during his visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night, including his own experiences with Oscar, Oprah, and areolae. (Not at the same time, mind you.)

'The Star-Spangled Banner': A look back at some of the 'bombs bursting in air' before Steven Tyler's flub

Since Steven Tyler performed a cat-scratch rendition of the national anthem at yesterday’s AFC Championship game, the performance has gone viral and been met with an Internet response about as hospitable as New England Patriots’ coach Bill Belichick’s “What’s that smell?” face. Which brings to our attention for the trillionth time that, Man, that song is tricky. Since Francis Scott Key penned the rousing lyrics in 1814, many have been felled by its one-and-a-half-octave range and flummoxing verbiage (“O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming”? That’s old-time speak!). For fairness, I’ve mainly stuck with actual singers (or people who clearly think they can sing, ahem, Carl Lewis). Below, some of the biggest “Star-Spangled” screwups. (We’ve included video. You’re welcome!) READ FULL STORY

Steven Tyler's national anthem rendition booed on the Web

Steven Tyler’s hometown Patriots may be through to the Super Bowl, but his performance of the national anthem at the AFC championship game today was less than through-to-Hollywood worthy. The American Idol judge messed up a lyric (“as bomb bursting in air”) and screeched his way through the song. The rendition was slammed by several sports blogs as well as TMZ, not to mention hundreds of Twitter insults from fans. Check it out for yourself below and share your thoughts.
