Just after she reprised her Top 9 contemporary routine with Kiki, Jenna Johnson burst into tears, revealing to Cat Deeley between sobs, “I’m just so sad… because I love dancing with him!”

Suffice to say, Monday’s broadcast was packed with similar nostalgia, as the

Willa Ford Blames 9/11 Attacks for Why She's a One-Hit Wonder

Willa Ford Blames 9/11 Attacks for Why She's a One-Hit Wonder
Willa Ford has an interesting explanation for why her career struggled after her hit 2001 song, "I Wanna Be Bad."

Fans may remember the now 36-year-old singer when she was grouped in the pop category among her contemporaries at the time -- Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore -- though she failed to produce any more hits after her sultry debut. Ford opens up about her short-lived singing career in a new interview with Billboard and says that the release of her second single on 9/11 was the kiss of death for her.

"A lot of people don't realize this, but my second single was released on September 11, 2001," Ford says. "Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still, as it should have. My second single didn't do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned."

Emmys: It Takes a Village to Make Reality Competitions Pop
What do “The Voice,” “American Ninja Warrior,” “MasterChef Junior” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” have in common besides being in the reality competition race for an Emmy?

They rely heavily on the collaboration of artisans and craftspeople: Lighting designers working with choreographers, costume designers working with hair and makeup artists, and executive producers making sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

“This show is really collaborative,” says Casey Patterson, who executive produces “Lip Sync Battle” with Jay Peterson. “The minute someone is booked and confirmed, we gather the department heads — Jeanie Cheek, our wardrobe stylist; our set designer Keith Raywood; and our art directors Anthony Bishop and Natacha Aubier-Hatch; and our choreographer Danielle Flora — and get on the phone with the talent. We brainstorm ideas, then everyone is off and running in their own worlds, sometimes with just hours to pull it off.”

Commentary Commentary“There’s no number in this movie that we didn’t try cutting at some point.”

La La Land may not have won Best Picture at the Academy Awards, but it’s still a delightfully mesmerizing experience with one of last year’s best endings. It hits Blu-ray/DVD next week, and along with an 80 minute making-of documentary the disc features a commentary with the film’s award-winning writer/director and composer.
