‘The Voice’ Coaches on the ‘Chair-Turning’ Moments That Launched Their Careers (Watch)

18 September 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Although most fans know Jennifer Hudson from “American Idol,” the newest coach to join “The Voice” doesn’t consider performing on the Fox show the show to be her biggest “chair turning moment.”

“I was seventh place,” Hudson says in a video tease ahead of the show’s Sept. 25 premiere on NBC. “I consider that not a big break, but a great opportunity.” But going home, she confesses, wasn’t easy. “When you are eliminated you think it’s over,” adds Hudson. Not surprisingly, she considers her breakthrough moment to have come two years later when she was cast as Effie in the movie, “Dreamgirls.” She would go on to win an Academy Award for the role. “If that’s not the biggest break, I don’t know what is honey,” Hudson cracks.

Jessica Biel Loses Her High Heel in a Bathroom Floor Grate, Is All of Us

15 September 2017 1:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Wardrobe malfunctions happen to even the most A-list celebs. Whether it’s a major red carpet mishap or a Tmi moment that involves a long-suffering assistant, celebs aren’t immune to sometimes-embarassing fashion blunders. For further proof, just check Jessica Biel’s latest Instagram. One minute, the star was gracefully soaring through the air (in heels, no less) for a segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and the next, she was awkwardly grounded in a public restroom.

The actress made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show wearing a fitted Lbd which she paired with red and blue ankle-strap heels. »

Jessica Biel Re-Creates the Dirty Dancing Lift on Ellen and Damn, Girl

14 September 2017 2:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jessica Biel stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, and we have to say that she had one of the best talk-show entrances we've ever seen. After Ellen thought the Sinner actress would come out from backstage, she actually descended down the steps to the Dirty Dancing hit "(I've Had) the Time of My Life." But instead of just doing a little dance and sitting down, she re-created the iconic lift move with tWitch. Prepare to have your jaw drop to the floor. »

‘Don’t Talk to Irene’: Film Review | Tiff 2017

11 September 2017 6:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In an interview just before he began shooting his sophomore feature, filmmaker Pat Mills dubbed it “Dirty Dancing meets Cocoon for girls with low self-esteem.” As droll loglines go, that’s a pretty accurate capsule description of Don’t Talk to Irene, which brings together teen misfits and cast-off seniors for a nasty-wholesome empowerment romp. The knack for biting dialogue that Mills brought to Guidance is still evident, although his new effort can’t match the bracing sting of his wickedly funny debut, which revolved around the filmmaker’s delirious performance as a role model so bad he was good.

Theatre Review: Dirty Dancing (UK Tour 2017)

7 September 2017 5:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dirty Dancing review (UK Tour 2017): The time of your life in a night of dancing.

Dirty Dancing review by Katey Thompson, New Victoria Theatre, Woking.

Dirty Dancing has arrived in Woking and the enormous amount of passion and professionalism of the cast could not be doubted. The show is based on the film of the same name and set during the summer of 1963 at the Kellermans Hotel .

Baby, played by Katie Eccles is on holiday with her family when she finds herself torn between her love for her father (Julian Harries) and her lover boy Johnny Castle who is superbly played by Lewis Griffiths, whose physic and dancing skill drew wolf whistles from the audience. Katie Eccles depiction of Baby is brilliant and you certainly feel the passion between the two actors. Michael Kent and Sophie Mackay sung several solos and duets throughout the show and were fantastic to listen to. »

The Dirty Dancing Edition of He-Man and Skeletor

5 September 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

He-Man and Skeletor must have gone to counseling sometime in the past since re-enacting the final scene from Dirty Dancing was one of the last things I would have ever seen them doing together. It’s poetic in a way, but also kind of disturbing. The first disturbing part is that He-Man is walking around in his full, um, full, well…… Sorry, had to stop laughing long enough to really get this out. He-Man is walking around in his battle gear, let’s face it there’s nothing full about it, on the hunt for Skeletor. Once he enters the bar he finds

He-Man and Skeletor Go Dirty Dancing in Weird New Commercial

4 September 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It will be awhile before we get the Masters of the Universe movie reboot. But the Money Super Market TV spots featuring He-Man and Skeletor might just make that long-gestating fantasy adventure obsolete. He-Man and arch-nemesis Skeletor seem to have settled their differences in this latest commercial, as they can be seen recreating the romantic dance scene from Dirty Dancing.

They probably just really need the money right now as they, and all of us wait for the new Masters of the Universe movie to finally happen. It's been 30 years since the Masters of the Universe movie hit theaters and it tanked in spectacular fashion, so fans have been waiting for a proper He-Man movie since the cartoon debuted in 1983. Maybe this new commercial is a hint of things to come for the 2 sworn enemies.

What the Cast of Dirty Dancing Looks Like Today

28 August 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s a personal fantasy movie that never gets old but is well into its third decade since it’s release. There are talks of a reboot or a remake coming but one can only hope they’re just rumors, or that the new film would hold as true as possible to the original film. We can only hope. In the meantime many of the stars have moved on from that moment. Jennifer Gray-Baby She continues to act and has done a few voice-over roles. If you’re wondering why she looks so different it’s because she had a nose job at some point.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Dirty Dancing

23 August 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Dirty Dancing is one of the best-known and successful movies of all time. Released in 1987, this popular romantic drama dance film starred Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. It was written by Eleanor Bergstein and directed by Emile Ardolino. When this film was made, it was a low-budget film being created by a new studio and had few major stars. For these reasons, it was initially predicted to be a flop at the box office. Nobody realized just how successful this film would become with one generation after the next falling in love with the stars, the storyline, and the

How Well Do You Know 'Dirty Dancing'?

It was 30 years ago, on Aug. 21, that Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze first twirled into theaters in Dirty Dancing, a spicy summer romance.

Though three decades have passed, fans still remember the famous lift and Swayze’s character insisting that “nobody puts Baby in a corner.”

The young lovers meet at Kellerman’s, an upscale summer resort where Johnny Castle (Swayze) works as a dance instructor and Baby Houseman (Grey) is visiting with her family. Baby ends up at a party for the staff and Johnny catches her eye. As she swoons over him during the hot summer days, he »

Dirty Dancing Turns 30: Writer Talks Johnny & Baby's Future, a Possible Sequel & Why Patrick Swayze Was Her First & Only Choice

21 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

There aren't many movie references that people from multiple generations are quick to get. But if you say, "Nobody puts baby in a corner" to anyone in the 18 to 80 range, there's a good chance you'll be met with a knowing smirk. That's probably because while Dirty Dancing puts Johnny Castle and Baby Houseman's timeless romance front and center, it also has political undertones and societal themes that resonate with every era.  It was 30 years ago today that Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's sleeper hit opened in theaters. Writer Eleanor Bergstein, who based the movie in part on her own experience as a teenage Mambo queen, knew that Swayze and Grey brought something special to their roles »

Exclusive: Bill Medley On Vegas, The Righteous Brothers & Dirty Dancing At 30

21 August 2017 1:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Earlier this year, we were lucky enough to sit down with music legend Bill Medley in Las Vegas. Last year, Bill brought The Righteous Brothers back to Vegas at the Harrahs Hotel & Casino on the famous strip with singer Bucky Heard, who stepped in for the late Bobby Hatfield, who passed away in 2003.

Back stage at Harrahs, we spoke about the old Vegas, being friends and working with Elvis, bringing the new Righteous Brothers to town, and of course working on the soundtrack for the movie Dirty Dancing, which celebrates its 30th birthday today.

What are the origins of this current show here in Las Vegas and the ‘new’ Righteous Brothers?

Well, Bobby has been gone for thirteen years and I did get a lot of letters saying, ‘come on, keep it going’ and this and that, and I had one of my dear friends pushing me hard and then »
