Red Granite Missing From 'Papillon' Poster

The recently concluded Cannes Film Festival marked the seven-year anniversary of Red Granite Pictures’ spectacular launch party, the near-legendary beach event where Kanye West sang "Gold Digger" with Jamie Foxx to an audience including the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jon Hamm and Adrien Brody, and Pharrell Williams boldly declared that the new production company — which had just announced The Wolf of Wall Street — was to change the film industry “forever.”

Much did indeed change since that starry launch, but perhaps not the way Red Granite’s founders had envisioned.

‘The Voice’ winners: Where are they now (Season 1 – 13 updates)?
The Voice” season 13 winner Chloe Kohanski returned to the show on Tuesday and sang her new single “Come This Far” just minutes before it was revealed that Brynn Cartelli had won season 14. While Cartelli was coached by rookie Kelly Clarkson, Kohanski was the sixth champion for Blake Shelton, who has been with the show since the start.

Kohanski won the season 13 title on Dec. 19 after delivering a soaring performance of her original song “Wish I Didn’t Love You” as well as a cover of the 1980s hit “Bette Davis Eyes” and a duet with Shelton on “You Got It.” However, the single of her new tune only made it to No. 69 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Is that a sign of things to come when Kohanski releases her first album later this year? That first track, “Come This Far,” certainly sounds promising. She has kept her harder edge and revealed

Billboard Awards: We're Drunk in Love With Camila Cabello's
Camila Cabello might have just started her tour with Taylor Swift, but that didn't stop her from showing up and showing out at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. The star teamed up with Pharrell Williams to perform their new duet, "Sangria Wine," for the first time. Cabello's dance moves were so contagious, you'll want to copy them in an instant. The 21-year-old didn't stop there, though, because she also performed her hit "Havana."

Shortly after finishing up her double performance, Cabello won the Billboard Chart Achievement Award and took a moment to thank her fans, the Camilizers, for sticking by her. "This is a really special moment because it's been a year now of me embarking on this journey," she said. Enjoy her working the stage as a solo artist in the video above!

Since the Instant Save made its debut in Season 6, no artist advancing to the finale by this method has ever won “The Voice.” In fact, they all finished in last place in their finales.

‘The Voice’: Where do Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson rank among all 12 coaches to date? [Poll]
With the news that Jennifer Hudson is returning to the coaches panel for the upcoming season 15 of “The Voice,” we want to know where you rank this Grammy winner among the dozen music superstars to serve as mentors on this reality competition series.

Hudson was a coach on season 13 of this Emmy-winning show and was unlucky in her debut, just missing out on a place in the final when Noah Mac was the last of the Top 8 to be eliminated. That season last fall marked the sixth win for country music superstar Blake Shelton who has been with the show from the start. One of his artists, Chloe Kohanksi, won the title while another, Red Marlowe, made it to fourth place.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, who has also been a coach since season 1, was denied his fourth win after Addison Agen had to settle for runner-up status. The fourth coach in season 13 was Miley Cyrus,

‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’: Here’s the lineup of semifinal dances and Ballroom Battles
The top six on “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” will battle on Monday for the three spots in the final — literally. The semifinalists will go toe-to-toe (heh) in three pairs of Ballroom Battles in addition to their individual dances before a triple elimination. Find out who’s dancing what — and who’s facing off against whom below.

Individual dances

Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson: contemporary (“O” by Coldplay) — This song selection is no accident. Rippon’s free skate the past two seasons was to a medley that included “O,” choreographed by “So You Think You Can Dance”’s Benji Schwimmer.

Chris Mazdzer and Witney Carson: foxtrot (“I Got Rhythm” by Ray Chew Live)

Jennie Finch Daigle and Keo Motsepe: Viennese waltz (“The Rest of Our Life” by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill) — She probably won’t have any issues with this song.

Should the Emmys bring back the award for Individual Performance in a Variety Program? [Poll]

Should the Emmys bring back the award for Individual Performance in a Variety Program? [Poll]
The award for Individual Performance in a Variety Program was once a staple of the Emmy telecast. Over the years the award recognized some of the greats of the comedy and music world, including Robin Williams and Whitney Houston. However, in the ever-changing Emmy landscape, this category was eliminated 10 years ago. Do You think this award should be reestablished? Let us know your thoughts by voting in our poll below.

Why the TV academy eliminated this category is a mystery, but it may be because the award started to become a bit redundant in its later years. The last few years the award was handed out, the nominees often started to mirror the Best Talk Show category with people like David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert receiving the bulk of the bids in addition to their shows being nominated.

Pharrell Williams Was Bummed by Seth Rogen's Singing in The Lion King

Pharrell Williams Was Bummed by Seth Rogen's Singing in The Lion King
Seth Rogen portrays Pumba in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King and admitted that his singing voice is really bad. The actor/comedian revealed that his singing was so bad that his coach, producer Pharrell Williams, became increasingly frustrated with his lack of ability while trying to squeeze some decent notes out of him. In turn, Williams' frustration turned into stress for Rogen, who seems like he may have been intimidated by having such a professional, well-known vocal coach.

In a new interview, Seth Rogen discussed his upcoming role in the live-action remake of The Lion King and talked about the difficulty that he had trying to sing on key under the watch of mega producer Pharrell Williams. Rogen admits that he's not a great singer, so Disney brought in Williams to help out with the Pumba performances. Rogen likened it to bringing Evel Knievel to teach
