And, well, that’s it. They all gave it their best shot, but in the end it was 4th Impact who leapt off this sinking ship while they still could. You haven’t seen the last of them, unless you’re planning to avoid their brief and cursory exit interview on tomorrow morning’s Good Morning Britain, in which case you definitely have. Anyway, thanks for reading. I’ll be back here next Saturday at 8pm for more of this. At this stage, I wouldn’t blame you for giving it a miss. Bye!
Poor 4th Impact. This means that, from now on, X Factor is about three brutally dull semi-crooners and Reggie N Bollie. Reggie N »

23 years ago today, Disney continued its renaissance with the release of “Aladdin,” and Abu, Aladdin, Jasmine, the magic carpet, and the Genie quickly found their way into Disney fans’ hearts. Part of an era for the House of Mouse that’s known as the Disney Renaissance, the movie that showed us a whole new world was released between 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” and 1994’s “The Lion King.” It was the film that started the trend that continues to this day: Celebrities dominating voice acting in animated films. Before the late Robin Williams lent his winning energy to the Genie, voice acting was almost exclusively in the realm of people specifically trained to provide voices for animated characters. Though our favorite street rat-turned-prince got his name in the title, the Genie is the character audiences really responded to, and that continues today: He’s the most memorable part of the »

Taylor Swift is going into Sunday night's American Music Awards with six nominations, more than any other artist this year. With 16 AMAs already on her mantel, Swift would accomplish another impressive feat if she sweeps: matching the late music legend Whitney Houston as the most honored female artist in Ama history with a total of 22 awards. -Break- Ama predictions: Taylor Swift will sweep with 6 wins, the Weeknd will take 3 This weekend Swift will compete for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year ("Blank Space"), Collaboration of the Year ("Bad Blood," with Kendrick Lamar), Pop/Rock Female Artist, Pop/Rock Album ("1989") and Adult Contemporary Artist. She currently leads our racetrack odds in all of those categories, which means most Gold Derby users think Swift will indeed tie Houston's record. Houston was a favorite at the AMAs from her first appearance in 1986 when she took home two awards. She racked »
Georgia May Foote topped the 'Strictly Come Dancing' leaderboard as the celebrities danced in Blackpool's iconic Tower Ballroom. The former 'Coronation Street' beauty wowed the crowds with a stunning American Smooth to Whitney Houston's 'I Have Nothing', earning herself the top mark of 38. Bruno Tonioli dubbed the performance - which saw Georgia descend to the stage sat in a sparkling crescent moon - ''pure ballroom bliss'' whilst head judge Len Goodman admitted he was ''blown away''. Just pipped to the post was Anita Rani, who scored 37 points for her fiery and passionate Paso Doble. Craig Revel Horwood praised the ''drama, character-driven, Spanish »
Four projects are seeking their perfect actors, including one casting out of Atlanta for the role of Whitney Houston! “The Whitney Houston Project”Atlanta is seeking its Whitney to bring a “unique portrayal” to the legendary musical icon. This paid project will rehearse and film out of Beverly Hills, Calif., in 2016. “This Vampire”Two leads are being sought for this short film about Chloe, a woman on the verge of a cocaine relapse, and Sam, a man in mourning on the one-year anniversary of his girlfriend’s death. This film will shoot in January in Rockaway, N.J., but submissions are being accepted throughout the tri-state area and Pennsylvania. “Untitled Wedding Comedy”There’s no comedic setting like a wedding setting. This feature film mockumentary follows the estranged members of a rock band who reunite for a nuptial celebration. Lead, supporting, and day player roles are being cast out of »
Director Carl Franklin followed the success of 1992’s break-out thriller One False Move with his most notable work to date, Devil in a Blue Dress (1995), a Los Angeles neo noir recuperating post-war racial tensions within the confines of the divisive city, filtered through a glop of familiar genre motifs and superb command of tone and mood. Starring Denzel Washington and based on a novel by Walter Mosley, the box office failings of the film curbed additional adaptations of the author’s work featuring reluctant private eye Easy Rawlins. Twenty years after its premiere, the film has maintained an unprecedented level of critical acclaim assisting its sterling reputation. As far as noir goes, we’ve seen this sort of narrative before, a beautiful woman with particularly damning information and labyrinthine connections involved in a dangerous mixture of sex and politics, but never from the perspective of a black private eye in a viciously segregated America. »

20 years ago today, “GoldenEye,” the 17th canon James Bond movie, opened in U.S. theaters. The film marked a new era in James Bond films: It was the first featuring Pierce Brosnan as the British spy, the first with Judi Dench in the role of M, and the first 007 movie made after the end of the Cold War. The fact that this was a new Bond for a new time was perhaps most apparent in the scene when we first see Dench’s M face-to-face with Brosnan’s Bond. She’s commanding, blunt, cold and — at this point — doesn’t like Bond. “I think you’re a sexist, misogynist dinosaur, a relic of the Cold War,” she tells him. Dench went on to play the head of MI6 in six more Bond films, plus a brief appearance in this year’s “Spectre.” Brosnan played Bond in four movies. If you »

The wedding was in a Columbus, Oh hotel last month, and in this video you see Kendrick (in the green hat) hit the dance floor as Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" is blaring. It's pretty funny, »

A few weeks ago, Hologram USA announced that they would start nationwide concert tours featuring holograms of dead celebrities, such as Billie Holiday and Whitney Houston. Remember the Tupac holograms from Coachella a few years ago? Hologram USA is taking that idea, only with other popular dead musicians, and bringing it to millions of music fans. Now Hologram USA is planning to put on a concert featuring a Tammy Wynette hologram. The concert, which is due sometime in 2016, will stream on Filmon.com, which is ShockYa.com’s parent company. Hologram USA and FilmOn.com are both owned by Greek billionaire Alki David, who said. “It’s an honour to celebrate America’s musical heritage [ Read More ]

Even during its most serious episodes, The Good Wife has delivered moments as funny (if not funnier) than the majority of network comedies. Yet while that’s a major selling point for CBS’ most deliciously twisty drama (I’d present Season 6’s “Oppo Research” as Exhibit A), I’m a little worried creators Robert and Michelle King have started to become a little too fond of sitcommy devices — including, but not just limited to Eli’s closet office — these last few weeks.

Feast your ears on 13 new re-imagined versions of iconic Disney songs like “Colors of the Wind”, “Let It Go”, and “Zero to Hero”. These and more are all part of Disney's newest album titled “We Love Disney”, which features an array of current artists, ranging from pop star Ariana Grande to rockers Fall Out Boy. “We Love Disney” was released on October 30, 2015 and takes listeners on a journey down memory lane through some of Disney's most beloved songs. Some of them sound similar to the originals, but many have been remixed or done in radically new styles. The “We Love Disney” complete track list includes: 1. “Friend Like Me” from “Aladdin” - Performed by Ne-Yo This track brings the dazzling world of the Genie into the swigging jazz age. Ne-Yo sizzles with a crooning vocal that is complimented by a driving big band, muffled jazz trumpets, and an upbeat snapping tempo. »

The aunt of Bobbi Kristina Brown — the ill-fated daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown who died in July at age 22 — has spoken out for the first time since her niece’s death. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, set to air on Monday, Houston said that she knew Bobbi Kristina was troubled, but was “too late” in getting help for her. “When we really found out that Krissy was in trouble, we were really making plans to do something about it,” Houston said, “but it came too late.” Also Read: Nick Gordon Claims His Character Has Been 'Publicly Lynched'. »

Many a singer has tried and failed to re-create the magic that was Whitney Houston's "Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl Xxv. The best most can hope to do is to make it their own — and own it Demi Lovato did, singing the National Anthem to kick off Game 4 of the World Series at Citi Field on Saturday night. Just as she stunned on Saturday Night Live with "Stone Cold," she once again let her vocal acrobatics put on a helluva show. In the end, the Mets might've blown it, but Demi's mic-drop might go down as one of the only moments of this World Series that New Yorkers will want to remember. »

Based on the novel by John Niven, Kill Your Friends highlights the seedy underbelly of the nineties UK music scene. It stars Nicholas Hoult as our anti-hero Stelfox, a conniving and ambitious music exec who will do absolutely anything to get ahead, even if that means offing a co-worker or framing them for something really terrible.
Hoult has grown up on film; remember he was that boy that everything was about in About a Boy. He’s always managed to make clever career choices and seems to easily traverse between blockbusters such as X-Men: First Class and Mad Max: Fury Road, and smaller projects like Warm Bodies and now this. Kill Your Friends is much darker material to what we’ve seen Hoult do before, but he plays the part superbly. Stelfox doesn »

It’s been almost three months since Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away after months in a coma fighting to survive. And now her godmother and aunt, Pat Houston, is speaking out for the first time. In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the sister-in-law of Whitney Houston opened up about the troubling signs that appeared before Bobbi Kristina was found unconscious in her bathtub on Jan. 31. “When we really found out that Krissy was in trouble, we were really making plans to do something about it, but it [...] »
Her exuberance impressed all four judges, with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini saying: "Ever since we met you, you've wanted to sing Whitney. This felt like your dream come true and you know what? That's the most confident first live show perfomance I've seen, so well done."
"That was seriously fantastic, what an amazing, amazing vocal," said Simon Cowell.
"I think the so-called dancing was a bit clumsy, so that's something you're going to have to work on. Having said that, it is a singing competition... and it sounded like it was your record. It was a brilliant start. »
