The 6 Best Celebrity Britney Spears Impressions

4 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then Britney Spears should be very, very flattered. Impersonating Spears's voice, cadence and style is a tricky feat, but celebrities such as Ariana Grande, Nicole Scherzinger and more have pulled it off with surprising accuracy. The latest person to dare to imitate the princess of pop? Tinashe. The singer belted out a few lines of "… Baby One More Time" during Sunday night's MTV VMAs pre-show and sounded exactly like Spears. And apparently that's how she preps for performances. "Usually, for me, it comes with singing a little bit of Britney Spears, "she said. »

Saturday's best TV: The X Factor; The Good Terrorist

26 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Nicole Scherzinger is back on judging duties as the talent show returns, while a new film profiles the only person executed in the struggle against apartheid

8pm, ITV

At 38, Nicole Scherzinger is now the youngest panellist on a show nominally dedicated to pop’s future – in its 13th year, the pensionable talent contest reinstates trusted specialists in eccentric judging, as if to admit that the starmaking is secondary. The bewildered Louis Walsh bounces in his seat again, with Sharon Osbourne’s matronly sass also back. But if Scherzy can revive the glory days of 2012 – “You’ve found your balls!” – she’s the smartest rehire. Jack Seale

Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Adriana Floridia8/12/2016 12:53:00 Pm

This week was a big one for movie trailers.

First off, last night, the highly anticipated Rogue One trailer finally debuted. Many of us sat around on our computers all night waiting for the event, and the trailer did not disappoint. We're pretty spoiled to have another new Star Wars movie this year, and as much as we loved The Force Awakens, this one might look even better.

Besides Rogue One, we also saw new trailers for Disney's Moana, a new red-band trailer for Bad Santa 2, and new trailers for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, and Robert Zemeckis' Allied. Check out all of this week's new trailers below!

New Moana trailer sees Dwayne Johnson setting sail for a mythical islandNew Moana trailer sees Dwayne Johnson setting sail for a mythical islandAmanda Wood8/8/2016 4:14:00 Pm

New animated Disney movies will always get us excited, but we’re especially excited for Moana. Maybe it’s our love of tropical locales and Dwayne Johnson. Who knows.

A new trailer was just released for Moana, Disney’s latest animated flick about a young Hawaiian girl who sets out for a mythical island with the demigod Mau’i in tow. According to this trailer, she encounters lots of cool things on the way, including a lava monster, a sea-faring chicken, and dancing tattoos. Dwayne Johnson provides his unmistakable voice for the character of Mau’i, and Hawaiian native Auli’i Cravalho acts as our heroine Moana.

Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk, and Nicole Scherzinger round out the cast, which makes us want to join the adventure even more. »

It’s Maui Time in Extended Olympics TV Spot For Disney’s ‘Moana’

8 August 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you happened to be tuned into the Olympics last night, you saw a new extended TV spot for the Dwayne Johnson-led Moana, and now Disney Animation has released it online. Their newest venture after the colossal success of Zootopia follows the titular Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), who sails with her hero and companion, the demi-god Maui (Johnson) to a legendary island using her navigational skills. Dwayne looks to play the sweet, goofy, shape-shifting Maui well, hitting a nice counter-note to the brave, venturous Moana to make the perfect pairing.

It promises to be a touching, rousing adventure that should continue Disney Animation’s winning streak, especially in the hands of long-time Disney writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin). See the extended TV spot below, along with character photos, for the film that also stars Alan Tudyk, Jermaine Clement, and Nicole Scherzinger.

Introducing the Cast of Disney's Moana

26 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's Moana is just a few shorts months away!  Before the animated Hawaiian-themed film hits theaters, meet the rest of the characters that will help Moana and Maui in their quest!

We already know the Demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) who is half god, half mortal, all awesome! Although, we haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the rest of the characters in the gorgeous story of Disney's Moana!  Let's find out more about them!

Jemaine Clement (“The Bfg,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. The conceited crustacean wants to be more than a “bottom feeder” and overcompensates for this perceived shortcoming by covering himself in all things shiny.

Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, »
