The X Factor: 9 Halloween Week performances that gave us goosebumps

30 October 2015 5:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We're annoyed with The X Factor. No, not because of Mason Noise, or because Sinitta wasn't at Judges' Houses, or because of Simon Cowell's eye-wateringly high waistline. Nope, we're annoyed with The X Factor because we're not getting Halloween Week this year.

There's nothing scarier than a hopeful singer nervously belting out a classic while dressed in lycra and cobwebs, but we're going to be denied this pleasure as the contestants instead face the "this is me" theme for the first live show on Saturday. But that doesn't stop us from carving a pumpkin, popping on a witch's hat and reliving these best ever Halloween Week performances:

1. 'E.T.' - Little Mix (2011)

Not just one of the best ever Halloween Week performances, but one of the best ever X Factor performances. Ever. This is the moment when Little Mix made us stop and pay attention - not only »

Arnold Schwarzenegger To Host Us Celebrity Apprentice

14 September 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Donald Trump otherwise engaged with the small matter of his bid to become President of the United States, the Us version of Celebrity Apprentice was in need of a new host. And now it has one. It's Arnold Schwarzenegger. Everyone has already made the "You're Terminated" joke.The NBC show has been running for seven seasons with Trump. Like the Comic Relief and Sport Relief editions of the UK version, it involves celebrities working in teams to win challenges, with the lacklustre getting fired until there's only one person standing. Contestants have included Gary Busey, Andrew Dice Clay, Cyndi Lauper, Lou Ferrigno (shame that wasn't in an Arnie season), Steven Baldwin and Vivica Fox, with Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall and Poison's Brett Michaels among the winners. You don't win a job, obviously. It's all for charity.“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise, »

Lip Sync Battle: Watch Michael Strahan (and Special Guests) Serve Up 'Poison'

27 April 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

To quote the classic jam “Poison,” one should “never trust a big butt and a smile” … unless they both belong to Michael Strahan.

RelatedLip Sync Battle Renewed for Season 2

The host of Live With Kelly and Michael channels Bell Biv DeVoe, moves and all, on Thursday’s episode of Lip Sync Battle (Spike TV, 10/9c) for a killer rendition of the group’s 1990 hit. (Bonus: Strahan is joined on stage by three very special, and very familiar-looking, guests.)

To make the evening even more unforgettable, Strahan is going head-to-head with another big name in morning news: the Today show’s Hoda Kotb! »

David Lee Roth vs. Bret Michaels: Who Got Walloped Best Onstage? (Video)

1 April 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth is recovering after a decidedly un-rockstar-like moment during his band’s appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On Monday night, he was forced to exit the stage mid-song, after injuring his own nose with his microphone stand. Aside from whatever pain the boo-boo left him with, Roth shouldn’t feel too bad. Fans of aging glam-metal singers will recall that back in 2009, Poison belter Bret Michaels ate it in spectacular fashion at the end of his performance at the Tony Awards, taken down by a descending piece of scenery. So which music icon had the more impressive. »

If you wanna be my Dance Mom, you gotta get with(out) your friends… make it last forever, cause this show never ends. So given that … zigazig ahhhh, Dance Moms nation. It’s time for the Spice Girls/Poison Apples version of the Dance Moms recap.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Is a Tepid Sequel

17 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Five years ago, four losers passed out in a jacuzzi, boiled back to 1986, healed their past wounds, rocked out to Poison, and returned to their timeline as gods. Thusly, Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was hailed as a minor deity: He'd taken a dumber-than-huffing-hairspray premise and made the perfect trifle, a comedy with no greater aspiration than to be your first choice on an airplane. If I could bubble a time machine to 2010, I'd advise Pink, "Quit while you're ahead." Alas, with the tepid sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2, he and returning cast members Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke have stewed too long. Now the whole thing is pruned.

First, a recap of events. Nick (Robinson), Adam (John Cusack), and Adam's nephew Jacob (Duke) upended »

"His biggest mistake was just being Geraldo," Gibbons joked.

Rivera explained that he had been fighting an uphill battle the whole way.

"I was butting heads with my team from day one," Rivera said. "Kevin Jonas, Ian Ziering and Lorenzo Llamas -- they wanted to kill me from the first minute they met me. I had a big bull's eye on my back, so I was punching my way through it."
