The Pro Files: Makeup Artist Mario Dedivanovic on the Moment He Met Kim Kardashian - And How He Made His Break in Beauty

Now, a decade later, he’s created countless looks on Kardashian, which have set the beauty benchmark for many aspiring makeup artists, not to mention the thousands of people who travel the globe to learn his secrets at his Masterclass.

  • Bollyspice
On Season 13 of So You Think You Can Dance this past summer, choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan once again brought the magic of Bollywood to the stage. This season of the popular show had a format change with the contestants ranging from age 8 to 13 and could those kids dance!

Queen Sugar

September 6, 2016 on Own

What Is It? Ava DuVernay has teamed with Oprah for this series about a family reunited by tragedy in Louisiana, and she’s brought with her an entirely female director roster (a first).

I’ll Like It If I Like… Stories set in the South, stories that feature strong female characters and stories that aren’t afraid of taking on big issues head-on.

Why Should I Care? “Queen Sugar” has its flaws, but there’s some rich filmmaking on display and there’s potential for growth with these characters.

30 Best TV Series of 2014

2014 has been yet another fantastic year for television, one that continued the nichification of the medium, with highly specific and underrepresented voices breaking through in every genre. There was a comedy explosion, particularly on cable, with dozens of new series presenting confident first seasons and several returning shows reaching new heights. The dramas didn’t disappoint either, with visionary creators bringing new life to familiar settings and taking greater risks with their returning series, deepening their worlds. Throughout the year, directors and cinematographers brought lush visuals, composers pushed the auditory envelope, and an astonishing number of actors gave fantastic, memorable performances. More than a few shows delivered spectacle on a weekly basis, while others went small, deriving incredible power out of stillness and self-reflection. Some series swept the audience up, week in and week out, and others built subtly, only showing their hand in their season’s final episodes. There

'Drop Dead Diva' Season 6 premiere: Stephen 'tWitch' Boss says he was 'very nervous' to guest star

"Drop Dead Diva" is welcoming a face familiar for "So You Think You Can Dance" fans to its Season 6 premiere. Stephen "tWitch" Boss is guest-starring as Billy Donaldson, a man who hires Jane (Brooke Elliott) to help get his brother out of prison -- at any cost to himself.

"I'm hiring her to get my brother out of jail for a crime he did not commit," Boss tells Zap2it. "I feel that he's wrongfully accused and I end up selling my business and saving every penny and dime that I have to hire a big-time lawyer."

"My brother is played by Corbin Bleu, which is awesome," Boss continues, "because I've never worked with Corbin before, but small world, my wife [Allison Holker] actually did 'High School Musical' one and two with Corbin."

Boss is perhaps best known for when he burst onto the TV dancing scene in 2007 on "So You Think You Can Dance,

Last Night’s “So You Think You Can Dance”: Forever Your Gurgle

  • The Backlot
Before we get to this week’s dances, a necessary note: I am obsessed with guest-judge Paula Abdul and can’t help if my judgment last night was altered thanks to her presence. She’s Paula, y’all. Forever your girl in ’88, spellbinding you in ’91, and throttling you with sex appeal and bandleader jackets forever after. And get this, I also love this week’s other guest judge Erin Andrews — one of the underrated smart ladies of broadcasting. Hell yes to this unlikely duo of visitors. Cue up “Opposites Attract” and let these skat kats jam.

Amy and Fik-Shun: I Sense Frik-Shun

If you’re a longtime reader of my slobbering insightful Sytycd critiques, you’re aware that I was obsessed with last year’s self-proclaimed ninja Cole Horibe and his partner, miniature Maureen McCormick doll Lindsay Arnold. Their best routine as a red-lit, devious paso doble that transcended melodrama

The 2013 Tony Awards: How Was Neil Patrick Harris' Opening Number? (Take Our Poll!)
True confession time: I’m not much of a Broadway theater expert — unless you consider the fact that I recapped two seasons of Smash. (“Wait, that just makes you a masochist,” you say.)

But who can resist the charms of Neil Patrick Harris Hosting the 2013 Tony Awards? Certainly not me, especially when we’ll finally find out whether Bombshell or Hit List takes home the most statuettes. (I kid! I kid!)

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: The 5 Best Boston Auditions! (Vote for Your Faves!)
So You Think You Can Dance‘s Boston audition stop was a cause for celebration — and not just because it featured a gal with a lampshade on her head, a hunk willing to flash his torso upon request and Mary Murphy hollerating like a Red Sox fan with the score tied at the bottom of the ninth.

No sirree, the two-hour episode turned into party central thanks to a deep and ridiculously diverse pool of talent — with ballroom, hip-hop, ballet and contemporary all on brilliant display. And while it was a near impossible task to narrow it down to the five best auditions,

“Sytycd” Recap: Ah. My New Boyfriend Has Arrived.

  • The Backlot
Just found my date to prom!

Question about So You Think You Can Dance for the peanut gallery; Will it ever be bad? Because chiiiildren, it’s simply stunning every single week. I’m always overwhelmed by the amount of talent and sheer chutzpah on display, and last night was among the most consistently fantastic nights we’ve seen yet. I know I sound like your great aunt in Arizona right now, but God! The Boston auditions rendered me speechless (seriously, it took me forever to finish this recap), and now I’m supposed to pick the five greatest performances in a night teeming with supernatural, freakish, face-smackingly righteous talent. I quiver.

Though here’s a moment of cynicism we can all enjoy: I thought that returning wannabe E-Knock’s story about his tragically deceased cousin was uncomfortably exploitative — and not on the part of Sytycd. E-Knock was working overtime

'So You Think You Can Dance' recap: The final 14 perform Mia Michaels' top routines
The Olympics are over, so that means it's time for an all-new, all-live performance/elimination double header of "So You Think You Can Dance"! Cat is wearing Heidi hair to celebrate! Even better, the entire show is dedicated to the work of one choreographer: Mia Michaels. Oh, and four people (two guys, two gals) are going home. Yay. Not. Our judges will be Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and guest judges ballet superstars Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt. Michael and Billy are top ballet dancers who have a show which is not going to be named on "Sytycd" (psst, it's "Chance to Dance" on Ovation, and it debuts on Friday) but is produced...

5 Reasons to Love the New "So You Think You Can Dance" Format

After a groan-inducing two-week hiatus, the glorious So You Think You Can Dance returns tonight for its Top 14 week. This season, the terpsichorean series lost its Thursday night results show, forcing major format changes that include 1) performances and eliminations within the same episode, 2) new "bottom three" rules, and 3) a finale that will crown two winners, one male and one female. And you know what? I think it's working out great so far. Here are the five biggest perks of the new system.

1. Cat Deeley works best under this pressure.

Why is Cat Deeley the greatest host on TV (besides, perhaps, RuPaul)? Because she has that natural Dick Clark-ian awareness of pacing, timing, humor, seriousness, and contestant sympathy. In the old format, Cat was responsible for introducing a myriad of guest performances and reading tons more teleprompter feed. Now, she's forced into exhibiting only her finest traits: helping along repartee between contestants and judges,

In Conversation with So You Think You Can Dance Bollywood Choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan

  • Bollyspice
Before I came to write about the great world of Bollywood, I was a professional ballet dancer for many years. It was my first love. So when I discovered Bollywood, the dance sequences were one of the things that made me fall in love with the genre. Since I am a dancer, one of my all time favorite shows is the reality dance program, So You Think You Can Dance (Sytycd) on Fox network here in the Us. You can imagine how excited I was when I first saw a Bollywood number on the show in Season 4. I was ecstatic and so it seems was the audience. Since then the Bollywood numbers have thrilled audiences and I hear will be seen on the 9th season, which is airing now on Wednesday nights. A couple of weeks ago I got the amazing opportunity to chat with the choreographer behind those great Bollywood numbers,

Community Blabber: Fans Agree That Ellen Should Leave Idol

You're always vocal if you think someone should stay or go from your favorite TV shows, and this week was no exception. While many of you are ready to show Ellen DeGeneres and Betty Draper the door, you're still upset over the departure of Billy from So You Think You Can Dance. Check out this week's biggest hot-button topics! The general consensus: Ellen DeGeneres was right to quit American Idol "I really enjoy her show. But she is so terrible on American Idol. I don't think she has any knowledge about music at all. Her judging was all about the look, the clothes or the presentation...After one season, I think she feels that too. It's a right decision for both parties." - lizzieMNR "Sometimes it comes down to one simple thing - compatibility. She didn't fit the style of A.I. and always looked so uncomfortable.
