Tag: Why Am I Crying? (91-100 of 366)

Johnny Keyser and Schyler Dixon's eliminations may have been sad, but they served 'American Idol' well

Last night’s Las Vegas episode of American Idol was easily the most entertaining one of this season, right? For the first time in the last six weeks, I’m legitimately excited about this season’s crop of contestants!

While season 11’s audition rounds felt sloppy and unremarkable — and featured almost no judging! — and Hollywood Week focused much more on group drama than vocal ability, last night’s two-hour show, which winnowed the group down from 70 contestants to just 42, struck a much-needed balance of rehearsal footage, singing, judging, and heartbreaking cuts.

'Parenthood' poll: Max made a friend! Who cried?

On last night’s Parenthood, we watched Max and classmate Micah bond while sitting out gym class. I cheered and got a little misty. When Max, who has Asperger’s, invited Micah¬†over to his house to play videogames, and Micah’s mother told Adam and Kristina that Micah, who has spina bifida, has never had a friend before, I teared up. Truly, it filled me with the amount of joy I usually get watching a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple finally get together after seasons of anticipation. I think I’m even happier for the parents than I am for the boys. I don’t have children, but on some level, having a late father who lost his ability to walk and communicate during a lengthy illness, I understand what it’s like to want so badly to bring joy into someone’s life and the power of the moment when you feel like it’s actually happening. Who else got misty? Poll below.¬† READ FULL STORY

'The Vow': I didn't cry, but I liked it when Channing Tatum did

What’s more shocking: The Vow‘s opening weekend exceeding expectations, or the fact that you didn’t cry watching it (or did you? poll below!)? I was fully prepared to tear up, but my eyes never got wet. I ended up seeing the film alone, so the only discussion I was privy to afterward was the one I eavesdropped on in the seats in front of me: One woman thought the film didn’t let you get to know the couple (Channing Tatum’s Leo and Rachel McAdams’s Paige) enough before she was thrown through the car windshield and lost her memory of him to get her emotional. Personally, I think I was just distracted thinking about their mutual stupidity: Did she honestly want to have sex in their car, at a stop sign, during a blizzard? That’s why she took off her seatbelt. It seems like she could have waited until he parked the somewhere. Why wouldn’t he have thought to bring in their wedding video as “proof” that she loved him before the accident — or any of the pictures an artist like her probably would have taken of them over the years? Why would he think inviting anyone over to their place on the night she comes home would be a good idea? Why did it take them so long to figure out they should go on a date to get to know each other again? READ FULL STORY

Watch 'American Idol' contestant Symone Black fall off the stage -- VIDEO

It’s a terrible headline and a terrible request for the use of your time. But if you’re as frustrated as I just was after Fox teased the heck out of one contestant’s impressive Hollywood Week stage-to-floor story arc — only to let our DVR recordings get brutally cut off by a bump for new series Mobbed — you can watch 16-year-old Symone Black fall off the stage here.

Don’t expect to find out whether she lives or dies! You’ll just have to tune in tomorrow.

I’m such a deeply loathsome creature right now, and yet I’m only trying to help. READ FULL STORY

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

It’s an important milestone in any doughy young boy or doll’s life. Watch American Idol season 10 standout Casey Abrams (have his dad) shave his beard after the jump.

'It's halftime, America.' How to top Eminem? Get Clint Eastwood to do a Super Bowl commercial

2011’s best Super Bowl commercial was Eminem for Chrysler. It’s only halftime, of course, but the greatest of 2012 so far has been Clint Eastwood for Dodge, Jeep and Chrysler in another all-American “Imported from Detroit” spot. Eastwood spoke of finding a way through tough times — if there’s not one, we’ll make one.

“Detroit’s showing it can be done,” he insisted. Then the actor-director’s voice that sounds like what Mount Rushmore is carved out of delivered a State of the Union closer for the ages: “This country can’t be knocked out with one punch. We’ll get back up again and when we do the world’s gonna hear the roar of our engines. Yeah. It’s halftime, America,” he promised. “And our second half’s about to begin.” Watch: READ FULL STORY

If They Mated: Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter

We’ve finally found him!

Congratulations to American Idol reject Ben Harrison for having such hilarious genes!

My recap of the Portland auditions will be up shortly. Conan and Andy’s twisted little lovechild was pretty much the high point of the episode for me.

Update: Here’s my recap. What did you think?

'The X Factor' poetry roundup: 12 most powerful lines from departing judge Nicole Scherzinger

Hot on the heels of a real tragedy, sources close to The X Factor say that judge Nicole Scherzinger will join host Steve Jones in their expulsion from the harsh, red galaxy. Nicole will not return for season 2, having received Simon Cowell’s blessing to go forth — far, far, away… no, no, a little farther… please, love, if you could just keep walking — and work on her music.

Since turning my “I love Steve Jones” post inside out and doing “10 Things I Won’t Miss About Nicole Scherzinger” seemed a bit cruel, here’s a benign roundup of some of Nicole’s most poignant and thought-provoking utterances in season 1. Print these out and let her wisdom guide you through life. You’re an inspiration for her.

Merely 12 of Nicole Scherzinger’s Most Powerful Lines of Poetry from ‘The X Factor’

“We’re nothing without the talent.” (during a confessional from her hotel suite in Seattle)

“If I were a teenager again, you’d be all over my walls.” (to the Brewer Boys) (ew?)
