'The Voice' Recap: Blind Auditions Part 4 - Pharrell Gets Down On His Knees For Katriz Trinidad

30 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Pharrell got down on his knees to win over Katriz Trinidad in the third round of blind auditions on The Voice, beating out Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton while Adam Levine looked on.

Blind Auditions Part 4

Katriz Trinidad, 15, the daughter of immigrant parents, had her entire family backstage cheering her on for her audition – Etta James’ “At Last.” Katriz’s control and tone got Gwen, Pharrell and Blake to turn around before she got through with the first verse. At the end of her first run, Pharrell stood up for her, and he was clearly in love.

“I never thought that I would ever find something that I usually look for my own label. Like, I’ve been dreaming for an artist like you all my career,” Pharrell said. “I want you on my team, so bad, and I’ve never done this,” he said, getting on his knees. Pharrell’s pleading worked, »

Aretha Franklin Accused Of Using Auto-Tune On Cover Of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep"

29 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Aretha Franklin released her cover of Adele’s hit “Rolling in the Deep” on her new album Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics, and she performed the track live on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Aretha Franklin Auto-Tune In "Rolling In The Deep"?

Franklin’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” is the first single off her new album. And, while the cover has been well received, some fans are calling foul, suspecting Franklin of using auto-tune.

Aretha Franklin's cover has a world of autotune. They couldn't have made it more subtle?

— Kristine (@spel_teeny) September 30, 2014

Whoever put auto tune on Aretha Franklin's cover of Rolling In The Deep should be banished from the recording industry.

— Kastra (@KastraMusic) September 30, 2014

Over the past decade, auto-tune has become a staple of any studio music, but in 2006 Franklin gave an interview in which she claimed never to have heard of auto-tune. »

Listen to Aretha Franklin Cover Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' (Video)

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Aretha Franklin just gave Adele a huge compliment. Franklin's cover of "Rolling in the Deep" is that rare remake that gives the original a run for its money - but even the most protective Adele fans won't mind once they hear it. (It contains a mash-up of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough.") At 72, Franklin isn't afraid to take on a whole slew of hard-to-beat favorites for her upcoming album, Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics, out Oct. 21. The release will feature "At Last" by Etta James, "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor, »

As part of her new album, Aretha Franklin took on one of the biggest hits in recent memory: Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."

Rising Star Season 1 Finale Recap: And the 'Winner' Is…

25 August 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Mr. Groban, tear down this wall!”

Trust me, I’m as surprised as anybody that I’ve managed to rework a famous quote from President Ronald Reagan into an intro for a reality TV recap. But just as the Berlin Wall fueled The Gipper’s ire, so too has ABC’s Rising Star — with its cumbersome “interactive wall” setup, questionable casting and tiresome “experts” — threatened the sanctity of my love for singing competitions.

Lullaby Review

10 June 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the compelling, richly acted Lullaby, painter and sculptor Andrew Levitas writes and directs a debut film about a father’s impending death that manages to take the weight of the moment seriously and not as a simple plot tool for heightened drama. Based loosely off the events surrounding his own father’s death, Levitas takes advantage of a superb ensemble to offer a film that, while sometimes conventional and overlong, has the intimacy and intelligence of a stellar stage play. In fact, given how every other scene is in the dad’s hospital room, how the story takes place over an 18-hour period and how there are suspiciously few hospital staff around, it very well could have been staged.

Levitas’ father passed away more than a decade ago, which brought the artist time to reflect about the circumstances of his life and his father’s disease. Although he shares »

Christina Aguilera makes impression in New Orleans Jazz Fest debut

2 May 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans (AP) — Christina Aguilera gave her fans a little bit of jazz, a little bit of blues, and a lot of soul during her debut performance Friday at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. The very pregnant performer shimmied and danced her way through a litany of hits including "Lady Marmalade," the Labelle song she helped remake into a hit years ago; "Dirrty," ''Candyman," ''Ain't No Other Man," ''Beautiful," ''What a Girl Wants," and her final song of the night, "Fighter." Morgan Griffith of Dallas said she came to Jazz Fest so she could hear Aguilera's voice live. "I've seen her at the Super Bowl and in her movies, like 'Burlesque,' and she's just an amazing performer. "She doesn't just sing. It's everything on cue: the dancers, the setup ... just everything." "She has such a strong voice," added Griffith's friend, Courtney Vrij, also of Dallas. Aguilera »

The Other Woman Review

24 April 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even those who are not well-versed with the American cinema of the 1970s have probably heard of writer/director John Cassavetes. He is considered the godfather of independent film in America, a figure who influenced low-budget filmmaking more than any other person not named Robert Redford. His films, which include Seconds and A Woman Under the Influence, are raw, revealing, semi-improvised explorations of marital life, sex, music, romance, suburban ennui, infidelity, aging and death.

However, the apple falls very far from the tree. John’s son, director Nick Cassavetes, is known for making sap, his filmography full of emotionally-charged titles like The Notebook, John Q and My Sister’s Keeper. However, with his latest film, the female revenge comedy The Other Woman, Nick transplants some of the plot elements from his father’s films – notably, Faces, about a man’s infidelity with a much younger woman – into a dumb, pathetic mess of slapstick miscues. »
