"Hozier who?" That was likely the question on most Saturday Night Live viewers' minds when the Irish singer was first revealed as the October 12th musical guest for Bill Hader's return episode. However, the rising soul singer delivered a rousing performance that ensured people don't forget his name anytime soon. Hozier played a pair of tracks off his self-titled LP, his hit "Take Me to Church" and the harrowing "Angel of Small Death & the Codeine Scene."
Just seconds into "Take Me to Church," it seemed as though microphone troubles »
This past week I had the pleasure of interviewing Jacob Semahn, the writer on the upcoming supernatural mystery series Goners from Image Comics. Before working on Goners, Semahn was a producer on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance. He is currently working in animation for Man of Action and has written screenplays for Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Ultimate Spider-Man shows. The basic premise of Goners (from the Image Comics solicit) is a “bold new historical fantasy mystery about a very peculiar family, the Latimer Family, who have been humanity’s lone defense against paranormal assault throughout history”.
Sound on Sight: What got you interested in the comics medium? What was the first comic that you remember reading?
Jacob Semahn: The first comic I ever read was Infinity War #1. I picked it up at 7/11 when I was a kid. I think I might have been nine, »

For someone who craves constant approval from strangers, Selfie‘s Eliza Dooley sure can dance like no one’s watching.
On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC comedy (8/7c), Eliza tries to relate to her co-worker Joan by taking a dance class with her. In the exclusive sneak peek above, Eliza nails the pre-choreography small talk — and gives the actual dance moves her best shot — but something tells me we won’t see her on So You Think You Can Dance anytime soon.

The roll up of the three production entities has been in the works for months. The new entity will be a 50-50 joint venture of Fox and Apollo, the companies said. The impetus to bring the Fox’s Shine and Apollo’s production banners under one roof reflects the wave of consolidation among unscripted production-distribution companies during the past few years.
The partners have tapped former BSkyB chief Sophie Turner Laing to lead the new venture. That means the CEOs of Shine (Alex Mahon) and Endemol (Just Spee) will exit, as will Shine founder and non-exec chairman Elisabeth Murdoch. Marc Graboff, head of Core Media Group, exited his post last month.
“This partnership advances our strategy of accelerating 21st Century Fox’s growth in worldwide television production, »

Some experience has been added to the big cast of Magic Mike Xxl. Dancer and actor Stephen "tWitch" Boss revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that the film's writer, producer, and star Channing Tatum had offered him a role in the sequel. And from the sounds of it, tWitch is taking it off. “I have to get waxed,” Boss said. “I'm really nervous about that.” The talk show host said she would go with Boss to get the neck-to-toe procedure done for support and great television. A former finalist on So You Think You Can Dance, Boss went on to »

Boss added that there is only one aspect of Magic Mike Xxl that has left him concerned.
"There's this other element. I have to get waxed," he said of the stripper-themed film, adding: "I'm really nervous about that!"
Welcome to the gun show!Joe Manganiello, Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer put their buff bods on display on the set of "Magic Mike Xxl" in Savannah, Georgia on Tuesday.The hunky trio is currently filming the highly-anticipated (right!?) sequel to the 2012 exotic male dancer movie, inspired by Channing's real life past as a stripper. Sporting a gray tank top, baggy jeans and a baseball hat, Tatum proved he's ready to take it all off after gaining some weight between films. Back in May, the sexy star admitted he was 25-30 pounds over his ideal weight of 180 pounds, calling himself "fat and happy" and talking about his love of delicious desserts. "I just love cake," he told GQ. "Confetti cake, to be specific. It has little colored candies inside the cake, and then you get the confetti icing, which is really hard to find sometimes. It's not icing with sprinkles on top. »

Season 19 is dance pro Allison Holker’s first on Dancing With the Stars, but the contemporary dancer and Emmy-nominated choreographer appeared as a contestant on Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance and returned to the dance competition multiple times as an all-star, so she is used to high-stakes dancing. But nevertheless, she was surprised by her intense DWTS practice schedule: “I’m pulling 14-hour days, every day. I’m so exhausted, but I’m ecstatic about my life I am so energized because I love the work I’m doing,” she revealed. “But it’s a good feeling and I wouldn’t have … Continue reading →

Chalk it up to another win for Gold Derby user Denton (full name Denton Davidson). After we posted an item earlier this month about how Denton had already won two of our reality TV prediction contests -- "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 11 and "The Bachelorette" Season 10 -- this 33-year-old data specialist from Minneapolis has now won his third thanks to his success at predicting "Big Brother" Season 16.

Allison Holker is one of the new pros on Season 19 of Dancing With The Stars, but this isn’t the first time that she has performed on a major stage. The contemporary dancer was a Season 2 contestant on So You Think You Can Dance and finished in the top ten. Holker returned to the Fox dance competition several times as an all-star where she met her now husband, hip hop dancer, Steven “tWitch” Boss. On DWTS, Allison has been paired with Mean Girls star, actor Jonathan Bennett, and their first two dances have gone off well. In week 1, … Continue reading →

Ok, we know this season of Dancing With the Stars has already been cast, but just for future reference: The show needs Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The Modern Family funnyman was a guest on Ellen, and the two began talking about the popular competition reality show after Ellen DeGeneres brought up that the actor's mother has openly expressed her desire for her famous son to compete for the mirror-ball trophy. "She called me and told me this…I guest judge sometimes on So You Think You Can Dance and my mom also loves when I judge on the show," Ferguson explains. "And she thought because I'm a judge on So You Can Think You Can Dance, I should then, in turn, be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars. I »
Jesse Tyler Ferguson has all the right moves! The "Modern Family" star makes an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Tuesday, where he shows off his impressive skills after revealing his dancing dreams."I guest-judge sometimes on So You Think You Can Dance, and my mom loves when I judge on the show," he explained to Ellen DeGeneres. "She thought because I'm a judge on So You Think You Can Dance, I should then, in turn, be a contestant on Dancing With the Stars." "I don't know how the two correlate," he added. "I'm never dancing on So You Think You Can Dance. [My mom] really thinks I'm qualified to be on Dancing With the Stars."Ellen decided to put Jesse to the test to see if he would actually be qualified to be on the show. "I'm going to let you audition," she explained. "I'll call out styles of dance and put music on, »

Season 19 of Dancing With the Stars began (somewhat inexplicably) with images of Her Royal Majesty, the Queen of England, a woman who has never thrown her hands in the air (and waved ‘em round like she just don’t care).
But that wasn’t the only surprising incident during the two-hour premiere: designer Betsey Johnson dropped an old-fashioned F-bomb (and no, “F” does not stand for “fashion”); the fourth judge nobody asked for, Julianne Hough, openly flirted with at least three male contestants while somehow managing to stay one exhalation away from having her breasts explode out of her deeply »
There's no point of reviewing Sunday (September 14) night's The Simpsons Take The Bowl show from The Hollywood Bowl, at least not in a traditional way. Sunday's presentation was the third and final night for The Simpsons Take The Bowl and, alas, if you didn't catch one of the shows... That's it. Sorry. Timed to loosely synchronize with the classic comedy's 25th anniversary, the show's recent syndicated move to Fxx and Sunday, September 28 premiere for the new season, The Simpsons Take The Bowl was a terrific two hours of live music, singing and dancing, culminating in fireworks. The event featured an assortment of new animation tailored around the venue, but also included classic "Simpsons" bits including Homer's plummet down the Springfield Gorge, Homer's gambol through The Land of Chocolate and the transition from the Ajax Steel Mill into The Anvil. I'm not sure that all of my favorite "Simpsons" musical moments were acknowledged. »
