Celine Dion responds to viral 'All By Myself' video with an invitation -- VIDEO

When Richard Dunn found himself stuck in the Las Vegas airport overnight, he made a decision: to spend his time wisely by making a music video set to Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”

The lip-synching clip went viral, and eventually found its way to Dion — who recently decided to send Dunn a message of her own. Although she’s not lip-synching, it’s still pretty cool.

In the video, Dion calls Dunn’s piece “hilarious and very touching,” and invites him to her Vegas show if he ever finds himself stuck overnight again. Oh, and he’s more than welcome to use her bathroom. READ FULL STORY

Man makes it through a night at the airport with epic 'All By Myself' music video

Airports are pretty lonely places, and there’s only one way to get rid of loneliness: by singing power ballads.

When a man named Richard Dunn found himself stranded in Las Vegas at McCarran international airport, he decided to do just that. He recorded himself with his iPhone as he wandered throughout the empty airport, all while lip-synching  Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.” Following the tune of the song, Dunn occasionally embraces his freedom, twirling in place, before collapsing into crushing, airport-induced despair.

This reporter got Hugh Jackman and other A-list celebs to appear in his wedding video -- VIDEO

One of the perks of reporting on Hollywood: You get to meet some of the world’s biggest stars — and sometimes, you might be able to convince them to do you a favor. Okay, so they’re probably not going to help mow your lawn…but if you throw out the word “wedding” or “proposal,” well, even A-listers are suckers for love.

See, for example, reporter Joe Michalczuk, who asked a number of celebs to congratulate his soon-to-be wife for a video he premiered on their wedding day. From Zac Efron to Emma Stone, Michaelczuk was able to rack up an impressive number of celebs, though Samuel L. Jackson might win MVP for wishing the couple a happy wedding day from Laurence Fishburne. Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet also get props for reliving moments from some of their biggest films.

Actually, no – Hugh Jackman wins MVP. See why below: READ FULL STORY

Videogame of Thrones: Watch 'Game of Thrones' credits get a 'Super Mario' makeover

Mario-Video-Game-of-Thrones.jpg

All men must die — unless you’re Mario and you get all the way to the castle to save Princess Peach. But the only way to find her is to follow the pixelated map, which has been given a whole new look (and sound) thanks to YouTube user NicksplosionFX’s latest video: A Super Mario makeover of the cartographic Game of Thrones credits.

Complete with an 8-bit version of the GoT theme song, the video painstakingly re-creates the Super Mario map in the vein of the HBO hit. Below, find the video, along with a side-by-side comparison of the original credits and the videogame version: READ FULL STORY

Emma Stone's Spice Girls press tour needs to stop

Stop right now. Thank you very much.

Right now, Emma Stone is technically promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – and not, as it turns out, a reunion of the U.K.’s best girl group. But this weekend, the star went on The Graham Norton Show, explained her love of the fab five once again, and had a major freak-out when she thought the gals might be in the building (they weren’t).

“I feel like I’ve been talking about the Spice Girls more on this press tour than I have about the movie,” Stone explained. She’s not wrong: She teared up when Mel B recorded a message for her during an interview in Australia, and had another emotional meltdown when Mel C, a.k.a. Sporty Spice, hopped on FaceTime to say hello during another appearance. And that’s not even counting all of the smaller junket interviews in which Stone has once again talked about her lifelong devotion to Sporty, Scary, Baby, Ginger, and Posh. READ FULL STORY

Jeremy Jordan sings 'Let It Go' from 'Frozen' at Miscast gala honoring Allison Janney -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

On March 31, New York’s MCC Theater held its raucous Miscast gala, an annual fundraiser honoring one veteran theater artist — this year, the fearless Allison Janney — with a concert program line-up that features Broadway stars performing songs typically sung by the opposite gender. Last year, you might remember Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff stopping the show with Smash’s “Let Me Be Your Star.” This year was no different, but we’ll get to that. First, Janney. READ FULL STORY

Fake trailer for '30 for 30' film on former NBA player Brian Scalabrine goes viral -- VIDEO

ESPN’s documentary series 30 for 30 does a commendable job highlighting sports’ great underdog stories. And even though basketball player Brian Scalabrine may have been the NBA underdog story of the last decade, nobody expected to see an episode about him. Now, the Internet is clamoring for one.

A fan of the former NBA player has taken it upon himself to create a trailer for a hypothetical documentary on the basketball star, titled Brian. The video has gone viral.

A backup forward who played for the Nets, Celtics (where he won a championship) and Bulls, Scalabrine — nicknamed The White Mamba — never actually saw much time on the court. At the peak of his career, he averaged about six points per game. But he still managed to become a fan-favorite during his 11 years in the league.

A wolf in Sochi? Jimmy Kimmel could be the man behind the viral video

If we’ve learned anything from the Olympics, it’s that stray dogs are a common sighting in Sochi. But what about stray wolves?

On Wednesday, American luger Kate Hansen posted a video to her YouTube page with the caption, “I’m pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi.” However, it seems the video could be another one of Jimmy Kimmel’s YouTube hoaxes.

Not long ago, it was Kimmel who fooled us all with the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” video, in which he got a stunt woman to twerk her way into a candle and catch her leg on fire. The Internet erupted before Kimmel finally took ownership of the video. And now, the “#SochiFail: Wolf in my hall” video has garnered more than a million views. Could this be Kimmel’s latest?

According to Time, the United States Luge Association informed Inside Edition of the hoax and claimed that Hansen will Skype into Kimmel’s show tonight.

'Frozen': Impressions master Christina Bianco covers 'Let It Go' as Britney, Adele, and Idina Menzel -- VIDEO

Christina-Bianco.jpg

Back in August, the world was introduced to New York actress Christina Bianco, an Off Broadway staple who gained viral-video status with her incredible impressions of 19 different divas singing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” (5 million views and probably still counting).

Now Bianco is back with the same palette of divas singing a particularly different tune — one that you’ve probably not stopped singing since December. Performing “Let It Go” from Disney’s small indie arthouse drama Frozen, Bianco demonstrates once again why she is a truly distinguished maestra of impressions.

First, she offers a little Idina Menzel (the Tony-winning actress who served up a little slice of vibrato perfection on the original track). Next, she dives into Demi Lovato’s pop version, which is cool, I guess, if you’re the kind of person who prefers Disney Radio to Disney Theatricals. Then Bianco really delivers, running through the gamut of Britney Spears and Adele to Julie Andrews, Alanis Morissette, and the rest in her bag of tricks.

Promotional baby for 'Devil's Due' terrifies New Yorkers -- VIDEO

Devil-baby-stunt.jpg

Potential good samaritans were punished Monday when upon looking in an abandoned stroller, a demonic-looking baby popped up and screamed.

The gag was a publicity stunt for Devil’s Due, a horror movie about a pregnant woman who discovers her baby is actually Satan’s after she experiences some worse-than-usual side effects.

Devil’s Due, starring Zach Gilford, Allison Miller, and Sam Anderson, comes out Friday. To hold you over until then, watch the video below of the stunt: READ FULL STORY
