Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert have shared a beautiful friendship for decades, so when Carell stopped by The Late Show on Monday night, it wasn't at all surprising that the pair showed off their deep love for one another with one of the greatest duets of our time. "People still don't know you're a great singer," Colbert said, to which Carell responded, "Well, that's not really true." It is true, and although it's not nearly as glorious as their vintage, shirtless pose-off, you won't be able to finish watching Colbert and Carell's version of Orleans's "Dance With Me" without having a big smile plastered across your face. Check out the video above! »

Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell are old pals from their Second City days, and their fondness for each other runs deep. So deep that even a routine press stop for Carell on the Late Show can't be done without turning into a full-on lovefest. It starts, like all great romances, with some flattery: "People still don't know you're a great singer," Colbert gushes. "Well, that's not really true," Carell melts. They quickly take the relationship to the next level, consummating their love with a cover of the Orleans's "Dance With Me" beneath the disco-ball lights. The message is clear: "I want to be your partner, can't you see?" Oh we see, boys. We see. »

There are at least a dozen compelling storylines on which I could choose to focus my recap of So You Think You Can Dance‘s Season 12 performance finale.
We had Nigel Lythgoe’s oblivious (but nevertheless grotesque) attitudes about two guys dancing together — so deeply rooted in homophobia that even Kim Davis might roll her eyes and sigh, “Brit, please.” We had the judges working overtime to make sure that Hailee Payne’s dazzling display of artistry wouldn’t upend the long-supported Gaby-Jaja final two.

Benkert - who has actually worked as an Olly Murs tribute act - made it through to the next stage of the competition in Saturday's night show, but Simon Cowell gave him a no after noting how similar he was to Murs.
The 24-year-old later wrote on Facebook that the audition had been "badly edited" but he told Digital Spy today that he is "not annoyed" with the show.
"Obviously The X Factor's an amazing platform, it's such a platform that can really catapult a career, and I just really wanted people to just see me," he said. "I've always wanted to go on The X Factor - I've watched it for years - and it's like, 'I want to be on that stage! »
Jamie Benkert, a 24-year-old healthcare assistant, broke tradition and sang an original song called 'Dance All Night' for the judges, which Simon Cowell stopped quite rapidly.
The X Factor: Relive the 5 angriest auditions ever with this hilarious video
"It's like you've been watching Olly for years," Cowell told the performer as the other judges noted the track title's similarity with Murs' hit 'Dance With Me Tonight'.
Benkert was then asked to sing his second choice - a hybrid of Drake's 'Hold On We're Going Home' and Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars' 'Uptown Funk' - which went down much better with the audience and judges.
Cowell gave the performance a no, remarking: "We're going to have to un-Olly you. »
The X Factor was back with another huge auditions episode tonight, full of talent and... well, slightly odd moments. We'd expect nothing else... but what were the best bits?
1. Olly Murs has an admirer
Well, sure, Olly Murs has lots of admirers - but surely not many of them are as fervent as Jamie Benkert, who seems to have modelled his look and singing style on the 'Troublemaker' (however much he bizarrely tried to pretend people compare him to Ian Beale). His original song was called 'Dance All Night'... not too dissimilar from Olly's 'Dance With Me Tonight'. All Simon had to ask was: "Have you ever watched a movie called Single White Female?"
2. Cheryl's new rule
Hello! And welcome to our live blog for tonight's X Factor episode.

The Zappa Family Trust has given its approval to a new documentary about the original Mother of Invention, Frank Zappa. The film is in the early stages of development and will likely come out in 2017, according to Variety.
Director Alex Winter, whose early acting roles in the Bill and Ted movies and The Lost Boys have given way to directing tech-based documentaries (Deep Web, Downloaded), will helm the film based on his own script. "There has yet to be a definitive, authorized documentary on the extraordinary life and work of Frank Zappa, »
Londoners were treated to a surprise performance on Wednesday 17th June 2015 as more than 50 dancers descended across the capital to take part in the UK’s biggest Bollywood ‘flash mob’ its seen. Starting with just six dancers, the ‘flash mob’ group quickly grew, with the performers emerging from all corners of the crowd dancing to catchy Bollywood tunes, as bystanders looked both delighted and bemused.
Calling themselves BollyMobUK, the dancers, mainly students from the Shiamak Davar’s London Dance Academy, stated they were inspired when watching the popular Indian dance show Nach Baliye on Star Plus (literal translations “Dance with me my beloved”).
Gurjeev Singh Kapoor, President – Star International said: “We are extremely pleased that one of our ongoing dance shows Nach Baliye on Star Plus has inspired a group of dancers to take the joy of dancing to the streets of London. We would like to take this opportunity »

Meghan Trainor's cute music video for her song "Dear Future Husband" looks like the lovechild of Mad Men's Betty Draper and Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" video -- and not everyone is a fan of this combo.
Dressed in her most feminine outfits, Trainor struts around in the bright video spouting off the qualities she'd like her future spouse to have when they wed.

"Dear Future Husband" shows the 21-year-old pop star scrubbing floors and baking in the kitchen, while the men are showing up to her door with flowers and chocolates as well as attempting to win her prizes at the fair for her with their strength.
While some may just see this video as fun and cute, others believe it sets women back decades.

You can’t love ‘em all — or, wait, can you?
American Idol‘s Season 14 Hollywood Week kicked off with what the great philosopher Fergie refers to as “that boom-boom-pow.” Seriously, the one-hour installment featured so many triumphant vocal performances I felt like my TV set should’ve been perched atop Katy Perry’s mechanical lion and marching into wherever it was they held the Super Bowl on Sunday.
