Kellie Pickler has been crowned the "DWTS" winner.
"This is amazing," Kellie said, before Jacoby put the "DWTS" winner on his shoulders as she held the Mirror Ball trophy with her partner Derek Hough.
Shortly after the results were announced, Kellie, who initially didn't hear co-host Tom Bergeron name her the "DWTS" winner, spoke with ABC News. "This has been an unbelievable night. I'm kind of lost for words," the "American Idol" alumna said.
"I'm very proud," a very poised Zendaya, who was the runner-up, told "DWTS" co-host Brooke Burke Charvet. "I get to leave here with an amazing experience so I'm happy."
After he found out he wasn't the "DWTS" winner shortly before the show ended, Jacoby joked that he'll be »

Is this the most lopsided dueling dresses ever?Miley Cyrus and Lena Dunham both showed off their tats in this Valentino jumpsuit.Miley wore the sexy suit at last week's Maxim Hot 100 party at Vanguard in Hollywood. Her black and white banded Yves Saint Laurent "Paloma" sandals were the perfect complement. A bright red lip added a much needed pop of color, but the pop star suffered an unfortunate makeup malfunction resulting in a two-toned face.Lena donned the same style at the "Girls" Season 2 premiere back in January. Bland black pumps completed the look.Despite her cosmetics catastrophe, we obviously have to give the nod to Miley. Lena's version is unflattering to her figure. Contrary to popular belief, Lena can look pretty on the red carpet -- in a strapless dress even (see here). She should opt for flared skirts to give her a hourglass shape (see here).Is Miley your clear winner, »

Amy Poehler was accompanied by Emma Roberts, Alexa Chung, Dianna Agron, Girls star Zosia Mamet, and more to perform both inspiring and hilarious personal essays ranging from sex and awkwardness to the hardships of growing up. Emma, who departed the event in the company of her boyfriend, Evan Peters, hit the stage to address her attempt to ditch Hollywood in pursuit of normal college life, revealing, "I was so busy pretending to experience everything [on screen], I forgot to experience real life." Amy was back for a second time after participating at the inaugural "These Ladies" show in October, when she was accompanied by Olivia Wilde, America Ferrera, Rashida Jones, and Aubrey Plaza.

Beyoncé's new single, "Grown Woman," has finally made its way online after weeks of teases. While fans have heard snippets of the song in the singer's recent Pepsi commercial, a full version was never released, until it leaked on the web today. In the song, which Beyoncé has performed on her Mrs. Carter Show tour, she sings about being "grown" and how she can "do whatever" she wants. The lyrics follow the same fiercely independent theme that Beyoncé is known for, but will it be as big of a hit as "Single Ladies" or "Who Run the World (Girls)"? Listen to the full version of Beyoncé's "Grown Woman" and sound off in our poll below. popsugar pollBeyoncé's "Grown Woman" Leaks - Summer Jam or Not a Fan? Summer jam - I already have it on replay!

"Grown Woman" has been floating around since Beyoncé's Pepsi ad launched, and it's become a staple of her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Now there's an alleged leak of the actual song, and listening to it is a lot more fun than watching shaky concert videos or soda commercials. Produced by Timbaland and co-written by The-Dream, "Grown Woman" is probably the lead single of Beyoncé's still-untitled, release date-less fifth album. Lyrically, it's a less grandiose continuation of "Run the World (Girls)" — it's also impossible to hear "bitches, I run this" without thinking of non-single "Bow Down" — but the beat certainly feels like new territory for Bey. While listening on repeat, feel free to imagine Beyoncé clicking "upload" right as she closes out of a pregnancy rumor post, looking over at Jay-z and slyly quoting Don Draper/Peggy Olson: "If you don't like what they're saying, change the conversation. »

Hannah Horvath's e-book editor is going to fight fellow Girls guy Ray next season, John Cameron Mitchell tells Vulture. "I actually have a fun scene where I beat the shit out of him," he said at the New York premiere of Before Midnight this week. "I have to kick his ass." When we point out that Alex Karpovsky, who plays Ray, has a bit of an advantage in that he's taller, Mitchell reveals another detail: "But he's very drunk and I was much more together." Karpovsky, who was also at the party, said, "It's like the mosquito versus a dinosaur. You ever hear that parable? Well, anyway, he's very quick, and I think quickness wins."As for what brings the characters to blows, Mitchell says, "I change the music on him. He's playing something that my character lived through as an adult, Smashing Pumpkins, and I can't stand it anymore, »

Justin Timberlake's good year got even better after Joel and Ethan Coen's new film "Inside Llewyn Davis" premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on Sunday. Timberlake has a supporting role in the drama, playing a 1960s singer whose wife (played by Carey Mulligan) has an affair with the title character (Oscar Isaac). During one particularly buzzy scene, Timberlake sings an entire folk song with Isaac and "Girls" star Adam Driver as his backup singers.
"The combination of Timberlake's reedy voice and Driver's basso profundo is so ... magical? Yes. Yes. It's magical," wrote Vulture's Kyle Buchanan of the "Inside Llewyn Davis" moment. "Anyway, it's so magical that when they finished the whole, uninterrupted number, the audience at the Salle Debussy burst out into delighted applause."
After the film debuted, Showbiz411 writer and editor Roger Friedman spoke with Timberlake about his career, which has pinged with what seems like little »

Cannes, France — The Coen brothers' resurrection of the pre-Dylan folk scene in Greenwich Village serenaded Cannes with its period music and melancholy tale of a self-destructive, feline-toting musician.
"Inside Llewyn Davis" was met rapturously at the Cannes Film Festival, where it premiered Sunday night. Joel and Ethan Coen said their primary interest was to recreate the atmosphere of the late 1950s, very early `60s folk revival amid the coffee shops of downtown New York.
"The movie doesn't really have a plot," Joel Coen told reporters at the festival. "That actually concerned us at a certain point. It's why we threw the cat in."
The film stars the relatively unknown Oscar Isaac as a talented but adrift singer-songwriter trying to attract attention after the suicide of his singing partner as he bounces from couch to couch. In tow is a cat – a kind of symbol for Llewyn's tenuous decency – that he »
Thirty-nine recipients of the 72nd Annual Peabody Awards will be honored May 20 at the Waldorf-Astoria in Gotham. The Peabodys, bestowed by the U. of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, cite the best in electronic media. Herewith are a few of the projects and people being honored.
The Smithsonian Channel’s “Mlk: The Assassination Tapes” couldn’t have been made if professors at Memphis State U., back in 1968, didn’t have the foresight to preserve the historic TV, radio and police-report tapes regarding the Martin Luther King assassination. Typically, those tapes were reused and hence lost.
“It was extraordinary to find this treasure trove,” says David Royle, exec VP of programming and production at the Smithsonian Channel. Equally extraordinary, filmmaker Tom Jennings “crafts a film from these tapes that is entirely dramatic and immediate, taking the reality that existed at the time and infusing it with drama and intensity. »

The Coen Brothers return with the 1960s-set Inside Llewyn Davis, a delightful tragicomedy about a musician just trying to get a break. Oscar Isaac plays the titular Llewyn and this is very much his show from beginning to end. That's a good thing, too, as the very talented Isaac imbues Llewyn with just the right amount of crassness to make him an interesting character without making him unlikeable. It's a virtual cavalcade of talented actors of whose life Llewyn floats in and out. The most notable is Carey Mulligan whose turn as a folk singer with plenty of attitude shows us a side of Mulligan we haven't often seen. Fans of Girls will also love Adam Driver's small but hilarious role. Those expecting a...

Joel and Ethan Coen have never made a movie that didn’t have at least a few big bubbles of perversity percolating through it. That said, one of the ways that I divide their work in my mind is that there are the Coen brothers films in which the perversity stays, for the most part, just below the surface (Blood Simple, Fargo, A Serious Man), which tend to be the Coen brothers movies that I love best. And there are the ones in which perversity stands up and pokes you in the eye (Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, O Brother, »

"The Coens have again taken a real time and place and freely made it their own, drawing on actual persons and events for inspiration, but binding themselves only to their own bountiful imaginations," wrote Scott Foundas of Variety in one of the film's first reviews posted online. "The result is a movie that neatly avoids the problems endemic to most period movies --and biopics in particular -- in favor of a playful, evocatively subjective reality."
Starring Oscar Isaac as the title folk singer and a cast of recognizable stars (ranging from Carey Mulligan to Justin Timberlake to John Goodman to "Girls" favorite Adam Driver), "Inside Llewyn Davis" follows a down-on-his-luck musician and his attempts to break through to stardom. »

There's a lot to say about Joel and Ethan Coen's new movie, the low-key folk music drama Inside Llewyn Davis, which screened for the first time just hours ago in Cannes. But would you like to know the most delightful element right away? You would? Good, because as you've probably gleaned from this headline, there is an early scene where the downtrodden Llewyn (Oscar Isaac) goes in for a studio session to add backup vocals to a song written by Jim (Justin Timberlake) — a square and steady singer who has no idea that Llewyn has knocked up his girl (Carey Mulligan) — and there, sitting in the studio next to Timberlake, is Adam Driver from Girls. In a cowboy hat. And then Timberlake and Driver sing a full-length song together. Is this holy, utterly unexpected musical union between Justin Timberlake and Adam Driver the most created-in-a-lab-for-Vulture moment of the »
