The casual music fan who watched this season’s American Idol finale and saw Tony Bennett, who turns 85 next month, dueting with Haley Reinhart knows Bennett is still going strong, but you can’t really appreciate how amazing he sounds until you see him live. I caught a show recently, and he’s the first singer to ever make me tear up twice in the same song (“Maybe This Time”). After 60 years in the business, his voice is still powerful and he’s made holding a mic into an art form — he knows precisely how the distance from his mouth will affect not only the volume but the mood. I love it when he drops the mic by his side and the sound is faint, intimate, and pure. READ FULL STORY

We’re starting to write about Charlie Day so often, it might be time for him to get his own PopWatch category. Feel free to nominate a name for it in the comments section. Like Skarsgard Your Loins, our reader-suggested category for Alexander Skarsagard, it should have his name in it somehow. Today’s news: Variety reports that the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star (and Going the Distance and Horrible Bosses scene-stealer) is in talks to join Guillermo del Toro’s alien invasion flick Pacific Rim. Per the trade, Day would play a professor, and the filmmakers, who have already tapped Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam, are looking to cast more rising talent. There’s no word on whether Day is the comic relief, but I’m hoping for a Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day-vibe. You?

We’ve always liked Michael Buble, and now we know why: He announced to fans yesterday that he was rescheduling tonight’s concert at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun to Thursday night so he could attend Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in his hometown, Vancouver. Technically, the message on Bublé’s website says the change in date is to “accommodate all ‘Die-Hard’ hockey fans in the Northeast, so they can view game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals,” which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. It’s convenient for him that his beloved Canucks are facing off against the Boston Bruins so that sounds somewhat altruistic instead of entirely (and wonderfully) self-indulgent.
Bublé’s fans, at least the ones who know him well, will likely forgive him the inconvenience: READ FULL STORY
I came out of my TV cave yesterday and decided that three months was far too long to have gone without seeing a new movie. If you were on Twitter around 5 p.m., you might have even been one of the kind people who helped me pick which movie to go see. (Spoiler: Most people said Bridesmaids, so that won.) Only, my rare moviegoing experience took a turn for the unpleasant shortly after the flick began, when the person next to me decided it was a great opportunity to eat his cheeseburger.

We’re just hours away from tonight’s two-part, one-hour season finale of Parks and Recreation, and if you want a tease of what’s in store, cocreator Mike Schur gave EW’s Dan Snierson 10 of them. Naturally, the first hint is about Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ben (Adam Scott) trying to hide their new relationship from everyone so they don’t get in trouble with boss Chris (Rob Lowe). I cannot tell you how invested I am in these two staying together. Somewhere along the line — maybe in front of the wildflower mural on the second floor? — they became my favorite TV couple.
