Related2018 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What’s Getting Cancelled? What’s on the Bubble?
Brooke Simpson (Team Miley), “Praying” — Grade: B | After
The 45-year-old rapper changed the format during his Saturday Night Live performance this weekend — rather than treating viewers to two separate songs, as is the norm for the show’s musical guests, he appeared only once and played a nearly nine-minute medley of three songs.
Backed by a string section and band, he started with new single “Walk on Water.” The Grammy-winner was accompanied by the song’s writer, Skylar Grey, who played piano and performed the vocals provided by Beyoncé on the official recording.
The Younger Now artist, joined by Adam Sandler on guitar, performed a moving rendition of Dido's "No Freedom," which Cyrus said was in remembrance of the victims of the attack.
Introducing Cyrus' performance, which kicked off her five-day "Miley Week" on the Tonight Show, Fallon addressed the tragic events that unfolded Sunday night at the Route 91 country musical festival, where 59 people were killed and over 520 people injured by a lone gunman with automatic weapons.
"This morning we woke up to the news of another senseless shooting -- this time in Las Vegas," Fallon said. "In the face of tragedies and acts of terror, we need to remember that good still exists in this world. We’re here to entertain you tonight and that’s what we’re going to do."
Now for the longer version, let’s take a careful look at the truly wild (but deceptively simple) phantasmagoria that exploded gorgeously across the world’s television screens on Sunday night:
In South Dakota | We started off in a very normal way (considering what was to come). Bad Coop and Ray have escaped prison, and are driving towards a place called “The Farm” (is it Big Ed’s Gas Farm? Doubtful). Bad Coop still wants that mysterious and vital information from Ray. But
Okay, you can put your hands down. (We can't see them.) But, we can see why you opened up your ears to the aforementioned artists -- they blessed us with two of the best teen TV show theme songs in the history of time.
From "Smallville's" apt "Save Me," to "I Don't Want to Wait" from "Dawson's Creek," we've assembled more memorable themes you shouldn't feel embarrassed adding to your Spotify.
7. "My So-Called Life Theme" From "My So-Called Life" (1994 - 1995)
If high-school angst and nostalgia had theme music, this would be it. No lyrics, just all the feels.
6. 'Where You Lead" From "Gilmore Girls" (2000 - 2007)
The Gilmores arguably have the most "fall as f**k" theme ever made. Which probably explains why we never fast-forward through it during our binge watching sessions.
Yes: The X Factor has given us some of the most heartbreaking moments on TV over the years. And from hysterics at Judges' Houses to Simon Cowell's own rare, salty tears, here are 6 moments that shattered us, ruined us and gave us every feeling possible.
1. Gamu Gate
The so-called 'Gamu Gate' has become a central part of X Factor lore. 18-year-old Zimbabwe-born Gamu Nhengu had given flawless performances throughout the whole show, right through to her rendition of 'Cry Me Out' for Cheryl and will.i.am at Judges' Houses. Surely she was a dead cert for a spot in
As Nat noted this weekend, that might be one of the better responses to an alleged Oscar snub in recent memory but as with all "snubs," we have the films and boy has Xavier Dolan's Mommy seared itself into my brain. And so I'm using it today to help me brave this icy, cold, rainy weather we're having in the North East today (anyone buried under lots of snow?)
One of the best scenes in Dolan's film is set to Céline Dion's "On Ne Change Pas" and that song has been in constant rotation on my Spotify ever since (actually all of the songs from that film have!) Dolan has quite the gift for pairing radio-stamped hits with transgressively appealing scenes that don't just work as stylistic juxtapositions but as helpful characterizations.
That’s why there’s a saving grace to VH1′s nostalgia-bait series, a 10-part anthology spread out over five days this week. It’s hugely entertaining to hear no-name comedians praise specific
I did a couple of times. Not raucously, but overall, the first showcase of American Idol‘s male contestant crop was much better than the distaff half’s debut on Tuesday night. Some areas of improvement over the ladies: less screaming; more looking-like-they-belong-on-a-stage; handsomeness; guitar antics; palpable sensuality; faces for gay men to enjoy. Maybe we didn’t get a tender, tearful moment in the vein of M.K. Nobilette‘s whispery triumph on Tuesday, but I think we clearly saw five dudes fulla feelings emerge as frontrunners. Which is convenient, considering only five are guaranteed to proceed.
I know this isn’t news to readers of TheBacklot, but it must be stated: Adam Lambert, who again appeared as a guest mentor alongside the world
Now Dido's most popular songs have been culled together for a Greatest Hits album. ETonline recently chatted with the Grammy and Oscar-nominated performer about the odd experience of compiling this collection, her favorite tracks ever and the most bizarre moment in her career.
ETonline: What was your reaction to being asked to compile a Greatest Hits album?
Dido: To be honest I was a bit taken aback [laughs]. I was in the middle of making another record when Sony suggested I put out
It's not yet known whether Sir Tom, Danny or will are back for series three, but the search is already on to find a female popstar to replace J-j-j-Jessie.
The bookmakers have already started listing the usual suspects (Cheryl, Kylie, Adele), but here at Digital Spy we've come up with a list of serious replacements, who we believe to be genuine possible contenders for series three.
If the BBC wants a like-for-like Jessie J replacement, personality-wise you couldn't get much closer than Miss Stone. She has a Marmite effect on the general public, she isn't afraid of speaking her mind and she's fond of an impromptu warble. We can easily imagine her dancing
"I was busy telling everyone there was an album on the way," Dido said. "And then I found out there was a baby on the way instead."
She and husband Rohan Gavin welcomed their first child, a son named Stanley, in July 2011. Dido packed up the recordings to focus on family.
But then late last year, the 41-year-old English singer reached out to her brother, producer Rollo Armstrong, to finally put the finishing touches on her fourth album, "Girl Who Got Away," released Tuesday.
Quick to laugh and full of self-deprecating asides, Dido recently sat down with The Associated Press to discuss her new songs, her son's musical tastes and her tendency to retreat from fame.
The singer's 2003 hit has been reworked many times on both the UK and Us versions of the show, including for Diana Vickers's 2008 farewell performance where she was embraced by Eoghan Quigg.
"I've seen a couple of them and quite liked them," Dido told Metro of the covers.
"The best one was Stars in Their Eyes - why isn't that still on TV? I sent the contestant my Brits outfit to wear."
She added: "I saw Howard Jones doing 'White Flag' on one of those shows where musicians do one of their own songs and a cover.
"I thought, 'Oh my God, this is the circle of life', because I was obsessed with Howard Jones during my teenage years. That was quite a moment."
Dido this month released comeback album Girl Who Got Away,
