Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman Want to Laugh at Your Crafts

23 minutes ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Will Hipsters Finally Get Their ‘American Idol’?

Reality-tv historians rightly remember Antiques Roadshow as one of the genre’s formative forebears. One of the earliest updates of the storied traveling freak show for the televisual medium, the venerable institution (the original British version dates to the very punk year of 1979) paved the way for cheap, glorious crap like the early rounds of American Idol, everything about Hoarders, and everything on Hgtv. But what if, instead of finding garbage in their attics, insufferable people made the garbage with their own two hands? What if NBC filmed it? That’s the question that hipster hero Amy Poehler and her production company, Paper Kite Productions, are asking in their sell of The Handmade Project, an “unscripted series” focused on competitive arts and crafts. To make things even more affable, she will be joined by Nick Offerman, her co-star on NBC’s hit Parks and Recreation. NBC »

The Voice Recap: Thinning of the Heard

27 March 2017 7:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A blazing Black Crowes redo. An overnight transformation. Rehearsal-room drama. Robyn unplugged. Hmm. Night 3 of The Voice’s Battle Rounds must’ve been pretty decent, especially for what you’ve mentioned is a subpar Season 12, because by the end of it, even Adam Levine’s Gwen Stefani-blond ‘do was starting to grow on me. Let’s review Monday’s performances, shall we, then you can play favorites in the comments.

Kanye West is not in discussions with NBC or anyone else about doing a re-boot of "American Idol" ... contrary to reports.

Move over, Biebs—there’s a sexy new crooner in town, and people are calling him the new Sam Smith.

Night 1 of The Voice’s Season 12 Battle Rounds was such a head-scratcher that it’s a wonder I still had a singular Homer Simpson hair left up there by the time it was over.

20 March 2017 1:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Jennifer Lopez is known as a triple threat. She acts, signs and dances. And after five seasons as a judge on American Idol, Lopez is adding judging back to her list of professions for her new show World of Dance, which she also executive produces. 

Out of all of her many hats, though, Lopez wears one the proudest. "I always consider myself as a dancer first. I became a singer and actress after dancing. For me, it's so part of who I am," Lopez told reporters Monday at NBC's summer press day.

Sheena Brooks’ Performance on ‘The Voice” Proves She’s Ready for the Spotlight

15 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

With shows like The Voice, America’s Got Talent, and of course their predecessor American Idol (which should make its way back to television on NBC), we’ve gotten used to hearing as much about the contestants as we actually hear them sing onstage.   The shows are equally about the stories of teenage prodigies, heartbreak, coaching drama, and anything else the show throws our way as the ability of the singers themselves. But last night when Sheena Brooks got up to perform a Sugarland cover of “Baby Girl” all attention was on the singing.   “I sing a lot of different genres. But

The Voice: Miss Me Blind

Going into the final Blind Auditions of The Voice Season 12 on Tuesday, Alicia Keys — with a team that includes Felicia Temple, Lilli Passero, Anatalia Villaranda and the competition’s youngest singer, Quizz Swanigan — was looking like she might be the one to beat this time around. Did any of the vocalists recruited in this last hour tip the scales (and arpeggios) in favor of Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani or Adam Levine? Or was the show too busy letting mentors John Legend and Celine Dion pimp Beauty and the Beast to focus on any real contenders? Read on for my reviews of the performances, »

Kick Off Your Sunday Shoes! Bacon Brothers Kevin and Michael Team Up to Fight Rare Cancer

When Kevin and Michael Bacon aren’t making films or composing for film and television, the brothers can be found making music with their six-piece band, The Bacon Brothers, formed more than 20 years. On Sunday, they traded entertainment for cycling, participating in fundraising for a cause near to them: beating cancer.

Nicki Minaj’s Beefs: A History of All of Her Celebrity Feuds

10 March 2017 1:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If there’s one vital lesson the music world has taught us over the years, it’s don’t mess with Nicki Minaj.

The 34-year-old rapper has cemented herself as a wig-loving, expletive-laden-lyric-delivering, no-nonsense force to be reckoned with. So, naturally, she’s had her fair share of feuds with other celebs.

The “Anaconda” rapper has sparred with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey and more.

However, last April, Minaj told Ellen DeGeneres that she regrets her past feuds with fellow stars, saying, “I’m a sweet person, and I don’t wanna be mean to people. »
