Two late, great performers come back to life on a new album compilation from Queen. Queen and Michael Jackson sing together on the song "There Must Be More to Life Than This," just one of three previously unreleased songs from Queen frontman Mercury on "Forever Queen," due on Nov. 11. Mercury's first solo hit "Love Kills" with Giorgio Moroder also gets an unheard ballad version on the set, as does unreleased "Let Me In Your Heart Again" from Queen's "The Works" sessions. The rest of the single and double-disc releases are "a definitive collection of Queen’s timeless love songs," cobbled together by surviving members Brian May and Roger Taylor. The tracklist is made up of "things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits,” said May in a release.

Before their untimely deaths, Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury recorded some songs together, as musicians often do. The songs were never released but became a popular bootleg for fans. (You used to be able to find them on YouTube, but now all those videos have been deleted!) The living members of Queen decided to clean the songs up and sell them as real music. Why leave money on the table? This one's called "There Must Be More to Life Than This," and the rest are coming soon. »

Hilter, a small dog and a Michael Jackson hologram. Hologram USA CEO Alki David has faced some strange lawsuits before, but this might beat them all. The feud between David and Pulse Evolution Chairman John Textor over the Michael Jackson hologram at this year's Billboard Music Awards heated up on Monday after Alki sought to dismiss a restraining order filed by Textor over David's Instagram photos. Textor claimed that a photo of Hitler and another of David pointing a firearm at a Pomeranian constituted a personal threat against him. The Hitler photo features David giving Hitler the finger. David tagged Textor on the picture. »

The fighting over who owns rights to resurrect deceased artists like Michael Jackson and Marilyn Monroe through holographic-like projection technology is far from over, but billionaire Alki David scored a legal success on Wednesday when he convinced a California federal judge to reject a false advertising claim that pertained to what the FIlmOn founder said during a CNN interview. David has bought Hologram USA and staked himself to the future of the technology, and around the time that the Billboard Music Awards featured a re-creation of Michael Jackson, he went on both a legal and publicity campaign.

The feud between Hologram USA CEO Alki David and Pulse Evolution chairman John Textor, former CEO of Digital Domain, over the Michael Jackson hologram at the Billboard Music Awards now involves a restraining order filed by Textor over Instagram photos of Hitler and dogs held at gunpoint. Alki filed a motion to dismiss on Monday, claiming that Textor only petitioned the court for a restraining order so he could use it as leverage in the “high stakes patent litigation pending between the parties in other states and in other courts.” See video: Michael Jackson Hologram Moonwalks Its Way to a Standing O. »

Saturday’s show opened with hosts Ranvir and Manish reminding the audience that there are just 7 days left for the grand finale of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa! It was then time to determine this weeks face-off. Mouni was one of the face-off contestants but as she has the Shakti Immunity ball, she used it to be safe. This meant that the face-off would be between Shakti and Akshat! Two of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’s strongest contestants.
The judges were very excited that Jhalak had reached the semi final stage. Host Manish reminded the audience that as Shakti did not perform last week due to ill health, she had received zero scores and so her outcome would also depend on the number of votes she received from her fans.
Then there was a special performance from choreographer Ganesh Hedge who was the special guest for the episode and had also choreographed the contestants acts this week. »

"Fresh Prince of Bel Air" alum Alfonso Ribeiro made his geeky dance move "The Carlton" famous on his '90s television show, but on Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" Season 19 premiere, he got to show America how serious he can be in the ballroom.
The television and Broadway star, who once danced toe-to-toe with Michael Jackson in a Pepsi commercial in the 1980s, hit the "DWTS" ballroom and, as judge Carrie Ann Inaba pointed out, brought some real style.
Alfonso and his pro partner, Witney Carson, were given the jive, and with their quick feet and smooth ...

Talk about a night to remember. Glee and 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson is still on Cloud 9 after tying the knot with boyfriend Jason Landau on Saturday evening. "There was so much love coming at us," Jackson, 39, tells People. "We're both just love hungover." Set atop the converted tennis court of a friend's lavish estate in Encino, California, the ceremony and reception scene melded nature with glam elements. "I grew up in the woods with no running water and outhouses, so I wanted the woodsy look. Jason wanted glitz," says Jackson. To outfit the space, 1540 Productions brought in 20 trees and 100 chandeliers. »

There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »

Stop-motion animation has been used for years to make some of film and TV's most iconic characters come to life.
A YouTube user has made a video called Stop Motion Animation: A History to celebrate some of the best animated films to have used this form of animation.
Stop-motion animation is a technique used to makes static objects appear as if they are moving, filmed one frame at a time.
It is commonly used with puppets and clay characters, such as Wallace & Gromit.
The video shows clips of classic stop-motion animated films, beginning with King Kong in 1933 and ending with this year's The Boxtrolls.
Mention "Baba O'Riley" in casual conversation, and most people won't have any idea what song you are talking about. But if you refer to The Who's track as "'that teenage wasteland' song," you'll get knowing nods. Same goes for Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth" (that "there's something happening here" song), Night Ranger's "Sister Christian" (that "motorin'!" song), and Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" (that "Annie, are you Ok?" song). We all know them; we might even know the lyrics. We certainly don't Shazam them, because they're so familiar. But what if you actually had to find them on Spotify? Don't worry: I've put together a playlist of my 20 favorite nonobvious song titles, or "that's what that song is called?!" songs, here for your listening pleasure. To listen to the playlist below, download the free Spotify software or app. Track List: "Baba O'Riley," The Who "For What It's Worth, »

No play ever celebrated arrested development quite so amusingly as Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth, a shambling off-Broadway hit from 1996 now revived starring Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and an ingenue named Tavi Gavinson, all making their Broadway debuts. The production is the latest transfer by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, and as staged by Anna D. Shapiro, it’s typical of that celebrated troupe in its physicality combined with thoughtfulness.
The time is the 1980s and the setting is the apartment of Dennis (Culkin), who passes the time selling weed and coke while waiting for his life to happen. When his equally vacant but much milder friend Warren (Cera, of Juno and Arrested Development) shows up with $15,000 stolen from his possibly mobbed-up father, the boys consider several options: using the money to score a major drug deal and make even more money; return it before Warren’s father discovers »

A few weeks ago, we were whisked away to the magical land of Portland, Oregon, for the sole purpose of visiting Laika, the animation studio whose dazzling new stop motion confection "The Boxtrolls," opens later this month. As you can imagine, it was downright magical and while we were there, for a few short hours, we tried to soak up all we could from the place - the sets, the people, the vibe - so we relay that special feeling to you. It was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime treat, to the point that we had to actively wonder if we had come down with some incurable disease and they were whisking us there as a dying wish.
While we tried to cram as many anecdotes and notes as we could into our trip, but we were also working (see our adorable interview with Isaac Hempstead-Wright, who voices Eggs, a small child »
