Was the ‘Shake It Up’ finale everything you hoped it would be? Read our review, then give us yours!
CeCe (Bella Thorne) and the rest of the crew danced off into the sunset on the Nov. 10 series finale of Disney Channel’s Shake It Up, and for an impromptu last episode — Zendaya recently told HollywoodLife.com she thought it “fits the finale mold” – it was a pretty satisfying send-off.
Here’s what went down: After CeCe took a tumble during a charity fashion show — oh, that girl, clumsy ’til the end! — she was stricken with amnesia, leaving her friends and family to jog her memory. There were a few bumps in the process, like when CeCe mistook Tinka (Caroline Sunshine) for her best friend, but everything turned out right in the end.
So, it was basically like the final episode of Full House, only CeCe didn’t need a translucent »

When I first read about ‘Shake It Up’ being canceled on HollywoodLife.com’s sister site Deadline, I was crushed. Disney sure is shaking things up and I don’t like it one bit!
It’s true: Shake It Up has been canceled after three seasons. As a faithful viewer since day one, it’s sad to know I won’t see Bella Thorne and Zendaya dancing on my TV screen once this fall’s final crop of episodes have aired. I adored my weekly Disney dance party!
5 Reasons To Love (And Miss) ‘Shake It Up’
1. First and foremost, the dancing! I’m not going to lie, I’ve picked up some serious moves from Bella and Zendaya. They are so fun and hip! There’s no doubt these super-talented teens can break it down like the pros.
2. I’ve seen a lot of successful singers pass through Disney Channel – Miley Cyrus, »

Deadline was first to report the news that the original series will end after its current third season, with the final round of "Shake It Up" episodes set to air this summer and fall. A rep for Disney Channel confirmed the news to The Huffington Post.
"Shake It Up," which debuted in 2010 to an impressive average of 6.2 million viewers, revolves around unlikely best friends -- the ditzy CeCe Jones (Thorne) and the overachieving Rocky Blue (Zendaya) -- who star on their local TV dance program "Shake It Up, Chicago!" Along with Rocky's brother, Ty (Roshon Fegan); his best friend, Deuce Martinez (Adam Irigoyen); CeCe's little brother, Flynn (Davis Cleveland); and CeCe and Rocky's co-stars Gunther and Tinka (Kenton Duty and Caroline Sunshine), the two get themselves »

Pop stars are getting younger and younger these days, but this is ridiculous!Sophia Grace Brownlee, the 10-year-old British rapper who rose to fame on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" with her cousin Rosie -- just released a music video.And like any duo where one half is more talented than the other, Sophia has become a solo star (poor Rosie isn't mentioned in the titlecard and is regulated to a featured extra role -- with no lines).Check out Sophia Grace's "Girls Just Gotta Have Fun" below. It may quite possibly be the most disturbing video that you'll see all day:Sure, it starts off innocent enough with Sophia Grace rolling around in her mini pink SUV. But then she starts flirting with a moppy-haired boy, rapping, "please don't get your feelings hurt because you'll get your turn."Roshon Fegan makes an appearance as the party's DJ, and Sophia Grace »

A new installment of the Disney Channel's "Stars on the Set" giving us a behind-the-scenes look at "Iron Man 3" has popped up online and in addition to a few new shots from the film and a healthy dose of on-set footage, the clip provides us with a character we have yet to see in any trailer. His name is Harley, he's a kid, and he's there to help Iron Man out.
"When Iron Man crash lands in the small town of Rose Hill," says host Roshon Fegan, "he finds an unlikely ally in a kid named Harley who helps him get back on his feet." Check out the whole clip below before it disappears.
Now, it's entirely possible that Harley's role is being hyped up here because this is for the Disney Channel and, well, kids would obviously get excited about seeing a kid hanging out with Iron Man. »

Zendaya continues to wow the judges and audience on "Dancing With the Stars," but she took some time out to talk about the experience on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The 16-year-old Disney Channel star has been at the top of the leaderboard for the first two weeks of the competition. But how does she handle the pressure?
"He told me that the best piece of advice was to blow my nose before I go out on stage and I was like, Ok, like, what does that have to do with anything?" Zendaya said. "He said, it’s live. There are HD cameras. Snot will fly."
Kimmel agreed that it was "good, practical advice." The way things are going, Zendaya is going to be blowing her nose »
