Mitt Romney gets support from Meat Loaf singing 'America the Beautiful' - poorly

26 October 2012 4:25 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

"Bat Out of Hell" rocker and "Celebrity Apprentice" alum Meat Loaf showed his support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Thursday (Oct. 25) the best way he knows how -- with his voice. However, some folks -- namely those who could hear him -- weren't too impressed with his performance.

Meat Loaf joined forces with country music stars Randy Owens, Big Kenny and John Rich, another "Celebrity Apprentice" vet, at a Romney rally in Defiance, Ohio, to serenade the presidential hopeful with their rendition of "America the Beautiful."  

As seen in the video below from NBC, Owens and Rich kept things traditional at first with the number. But there's nothing traditional about Meat Loaf -- unless it's on your dinner table -- who can't be held back by the likes of the song's pesky notes, lyrics and more than a hundred years of history.

"Aaah! Go ahead now brother!" Meat Loaf »

29 August 2012 3:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Clay Aiken and John Rich have clashed over the Republican convention on Twitter.

Joe Jonas Tells TV Fanatic What is "Next"

23 August 2012 11:26 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Joe Jonas, Gloria Estefan, Nelly and John Rich walk into a bar…

No, this isn't the beginning of a joke, although Jonas recognizes it could be.

"I've spent many late nights with those three," said the singer. "After a show we'll go out together and it's funny to see the faces on people. They must think we're the most bizarre group to be hanging out."

But the quartet has a good reason: Jonas, Estefan, Nelly and Rich are the judges/mentors on The Next, a singing competition on The CW that seeks to turn local acts into national favorites.

Each of the first six episodes finds the artists traveling to a different city - Orlando, Baltimore, New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles - and working with musicians that have a strong local following.

Each is assigned an act, spends 72 hours with it and then all four compete against each »

'Celebrity Apprentice': Lisa Lampanelli and Aubrey O'Day 'an odd couple but a good couple'

7 May 2012 11:20 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli and "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice both got the axe on "The Celebrity Apprentice" Sunday (May 6), leaving Arsenio Hall, Clay Aiken and Lisa's right-hand girl, Aubrey O'Day, to battle it out for the final two spots. And Lisa, for one, says she was expecting to be fired.

"I'm not gonna lie to you, I saw it coming," Lisa tells Zap2it. "The relief I think showed in my face. ... I can go home, take off my Spanx and let it all hang out."

Known for abrasive comedic roasts of celebrities like Donald Trump, Lisa showed a surprisingly sensitive side on "Celebrity Apprentice." But as previously eliminated contestant Penn Jillette pointed out, comedians can actually be a pretty delicate lot. And it proved to be the nail in the coffin for Lisa, as past "Celebrity Apprentice" winner John Rich and runner-up Marlee Matlin suggested Lisa »
