Dancing with the Stars 2014 Results Tonight - Check below for a live recap of who is voted off and sent home tonight as another elimination occurs after the third week of performances on Monday (Sept. 29, 2014). Last week, Tavis Smiley and Sharna Burgess were eliminated on Tuesday and this week a couple will be eliminated on Monday night. That means we will have to go back top the scores and dances for last week, so let's review the scores and dances from last week's competition. Michael Waltrip And Emma Slater danced the Samba to “Girls in Bikinis" by Lee Brice and the Judges’ Scores were a lll 6's - 6+6+6+6=24. Sadie Robertson And Mark Ballas danced Jazz to “She’s Country" by Jason Aldean and the Judges’ Scores were 8+7+8+8=31.

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show and will be blogging for People about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for season 19.There were a few things that didn't go according to plan in Week 2. We loved the song choice, "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," but the Otis Redding version took some of the edge needed for cha-cha away. It was something we didn't think through all the way. »

Get to know the sensational singers that the coaches fought over in the Season 7 premiere of 'The Voice'…
Pull up a chair, because The Voice is officially back for their seventh season!
The Voice veterans, (and founding members of TV’s best bromance) Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are back, and this time they've brought two new faced to the Emmy award-winning series: No Doubt's leading lady, Gwen Stefani, and the man who creates all the songs that get stuck in your head, producer Pharrell Williams.
To kick off the new season and celebrate the first night of blind auditions, the musically-inclined foursome took the stage to gift fans with a cover of Gwen and Pharrell’s 2001 hit, “Hella Good.” All in all it was a pretty good performance, but we wanted to rip our hair out when Gwen kept making the audience sing the obnoxious “Ooo! Ooo!” call-and-answer. Come on »
I’m too lazy to Google it, but I’m pretty sure Jim Carrey had movie maybe 10 years ago where his character said “yes” to everything, all the time, immediately.
Somehow, that same madcap spirit seems to have infiltrated Season 7 of The Voice — where Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and newcomers Pharrell Williams and Gwen Stefani were slapping their buttons and turning their chairs not just from the opening three notes, but in some instances from the first pre-performance throat-clearance.
This last weekend, there was a Johnny Ramone tribute at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery where Rob Zombie played, because apparently the two became friends that time The Ramones were touring around White Zombie (if all of this has been foreign to you, know there's one of your peers feeling really old for knowing exactly what I'm talking about). Anyway, Jeff Jampol, a man whose name you can quickly forget, co-manages the band's estate and with the recent death of Tommy, the last surviving Ramone, Jampol is ready to re-orient the brand around the entire band as a group (rather than honoring the individual members).
Jampol isn't any slouch, he also reps the estates of The Doors, Janis Joplin, Tupac (thank you for the hologram, Mr. Jampol), and Otis Redding, and has a grand plan for the future of the Ramones brand.

God Help the Girl is a tale of love and despair through the medium of song and dance, starring Emily Brown and Olly Alexander. Written and directed by Belle & Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch, the film in part follows Alexander’s bewitched James and his adoration of Eve (Browning,) a troubled, medicated songwriter.
To celebrate the film’s release we take a look at some of the best proclamations of love via the magical form of song in cinema.
Admittedly this sequence is mimed, but mimed to Otis Redding and with such panache that Jon Cryer’s Duckie is easily forgiven. Besotted with his best friend and sadly not as bold with his feelings as he is with his sense of fashion, Duckie’s extravagant routine is as a means of impressing his audience; a bewildered Andie (Molly Ringwald)and the quietly impressed Iona. »

Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Al Green, Box Tops, Carl Perkins, Big Bill Broonzy, Bobby Womack, Booker T. & The MGs. These soul artists created a body of work that to this day stands with distinction, so what better way to honor them than to team up some of those musicians with.....hip hop artists? That's the central premise of the upcoming documentary "Take Me To The River," that finds director Martin Shore chronicling the making of an album featuring veteran artists like Mavis Staples, Bobby Rush and Otis Clay, teaming with folks like Snoop Dogg, Lil' P-Nut and Yo Gotti. Uh...okay. "Take Me To The River" opens on September 12th, and if you need a little push to see it, the doc scored an Audience Award at SXSW this spring. Watch below. [EW] »

Do you know how Drunk History started? Seven years ago, series creator Derek Waters was having a conversation about Otis Redding, and his drunken friend drunkenly tried to explain how Redding "knew he was going to die in a plane crash before he got on it." Waters found this passionate tale to be very engaging and very funny, and the rest is drunk history. That friend — you obviously see where this is going, because no one reads the body of an article before the headline — was Jake Johnson! Lots of people are funny when they're drunk, but Johnson is downright inspirational. Because Jake Johnson is the greatest drunk actor of our time.To be clear, I'm not saying Johnson is the greatest at being drunk and acting (though he probably got close on Drinking Buddies). No, Johnson is greatest at playing drunk people. Drunkenness has been a major component of »

The story of iconic soul label Stax Records is en route to stage and screen with Evergreen Media Holdings and Oscar-winning 20 Feet From Stardom director Morgan Neville. Neville will executive produce a feature adaptation of author Robert Gordon’s 2013 book Respect Yourself: Stax Records And The Soul Explosion, tracking the inception of the influential record label that created in 1960s Memphis by a white banker and a black radio DJ amid the civil rights movement.
Evergreen also has inked a separate deal with Rondor Music International, a Universal Music Group company, for rights to use the Stax music catalog that put out such soul classics as Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” Wilson Pickett’s “In the Midnight Hour,” the Staple Singers’ “I’ll Take You There” and tracks from the likes of Booker T. and the MGs, Sam and Dave, Isaac Hayes and more.

Just last month, Concord Music Group announced that it was developing a Broadway musical about the iconic music label Stax Records, which launched the careers of such soul artists as Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes and Booker T. & the Mg's amid the racial tension of the civil rights era. Stuart Benjamin, the Academy Award nominated producer of Ray, is co-developing the musical, and the plan is to launch by spring of 2016. Is it possible though that the producers lined up the wrong rights to make this happen? That's what a lawsuit filed by Tony DeRosa-Grund's Evergreen Media

Glee Season 6 News
Glee’s five new characters will all be high school sophomores, navigating the halls of McKinley, according to TVLine, which has the breakdown of the new characters.
The show’s new underdog will be a chubby introvert named Roderick, who has the vocal chops of Otis Redding. On the outside with Roderick is Jane, who possesses something of a type-a personality and joins New Directions after learning she can't join the Warblers.
“Football stud” Spencer has a voice to match his prowess on the football field and also happens to be gay, but “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their a--es if they do.” Also in the popular sphere are Cheerio twins Mason and Madison. »
Singer Michael Johns Dies
Johns’ death was apparently caused by a blood clot in his ankle, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Johns competed in American Idol’s seventh season in 2008. The judges gave him a ticket to Hollywood after hearing him sing Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.” Johns continued to pass through the rounds and made it to the singing competition’s live shows. He ended up finishing in eighth place. David Cook was the season’s winner.
Sometimes you just want to get drunk and talk history with your friends — or at least Derek Waters does. In anticipation of Tuesday night's Season 2 premiere on Comedy Central, the actor and co-creator of “Drunk History” spoke about the, err, history of his boozy-spoof show with TheWrap. Waters recalled the wasted night he shared with “New Girl” actor Jake Johnson, telling tall tales about Otis Redding and unintentionally kicking off what would become one of the most popular underground comedy shows among celebrities. He also praised the Michael Cera effect and shouted-out Jack Black for giving his silly idea »

Contrary to popular belief, Derek Waters – the mastermind behind the Comedy Central show Drunk History — does not always take his work home with him. "People usually think I'm drunk, but it's just how I talk," says the series host and co-creator in his friendly, languid Baltimore drawl (which does, indeed, share the slight slur of some of his more inebriated guests). "But I'm not drunk right now. This is iced coffee."

Sam Smith has already been declared the next big thing in his native U.K., where he has proved to be a superstar in the making. Will he similarly be able to conquer America with his debut full-length album, “In The Lonely Hour?” In a word, yes. While Adele works on a new album, there’s a hole for a torch-y singer who delivers emotional, gut wrenching ballads that are steeped in traditional song structure, but are produced in a thoroughly contemporary way and with enough of a hipness quotient to land on radio. Smith was very smartly introduced to many U.S. music fans as a guest on Naughty Boy’s “La La La” and Disclosure’s “Latch” (both are included here, “Disclosure” in an acoustic version), and then through his lauded appearance on “Saturday Night Live” this Spring. Those moves primed the pump for his first single, the gospel-tinged “Stay With Me, »

Nothing spices up a movie quite like an amazing dance scene. In honor of the rad moves on display in Think Like a Man Too, here are some of our favorite dance scenes from movies. Napoleon Dynamite Not everyone needs a dance partner, as Jon Heder proves at the end of this high school comedy about an awkward loner who definitely marches to the beat of his own drum. Pretty in Pink Jon Cryer attempts to impress his dream girl by sliding and gliding through a record shop to the tune of Otis Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness." Molly Ringwald wasn't all that impressed, but we were! Grease In a movie full of memorable dance numbers, it's this adorably sexy dance-off between John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John that...

A salsa dancing 80-year-old, judges throwing water at each other and a controversial Golden Buzzer act, this series of Britain's Got Talent has had it all.
