Ever wish The Voice‘s Blind Auditions were shown in strict chronological order?

Ok, sure, a straightforward just-the-facts edit might rob producers of the ability to create narrative ebb and flow over the course of two-hour episodes, but there’d be undeniable advantages, too.

Tina Turner Museum Opens in Tennessee
Fans of Tina Turner know all about her quaint upbringing in a small Tennessee town called Nutbush. In fact, that small town is the inspiration for “Nutbush City Limits.” Now, that small upbringing has not only been immortalized in song, but also in the preservation Turner’s childhood schoolhouse. The one-room schoolhouse Turner grew up in has been restored and turned into the Tina Turner Museum at Flagg Grove School. According to ABC News, more than 100 people came to the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the museum, located on the grounds of Brownsville, Tn’s West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center.

Naya Rivera leaving 'Glee'? Here's why we'll miss Santana

Naya Rivera leaving 'Glee'? Here's why we'll miss Santana
Santana was just learning how to be a good friend, too.

News broke April 29 that Naya Rivera — who’s played Santana Lopez on Glee for the past five seasons — is leaving the show, and won’t even be in the fifth season finale. (For what it’s worth: Rivera’s rep said she wasn’t fired; a rep for the show declined to comment to EW). And in Tuesday’s finale, Santana was nowhere to be found. (The show’s explanation: She was “shooting a Yeast-i-Stat commercial in Iowa for a week.”) While fans will have to wait and see

Amanda Palmer, Sophia Loren and Oscar Winner ‘Helium’ Among Tribeca Film Festival’s 2014 Shorts
The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival has lined up a hefty slate of 58 short films that span everything from recent Oscar winner “Helium” to a documentary about musician Amanda Palmer to an adaptation of a Jean Cocteau play starring Sophia Loren.

The lineup, including 29 world premieres, is divided thematically into nine programs, separated into five narrative sections, three docu slates and one collection of experimental shorts.

Anders Walter’s “Helium,” which scored the Academy Award for live-action short, is part of Flight Delays, a seven-film category about thwarted expectations and the need to escape, while the Loren starrer, Edoardo Ponti’s “Human Voice,” makes its world premiere as part of the Soul Survivors lineup. (Ponti won Tribeca’s 2013 award for short.) The project about Palmer and her relationship with the music industry, Ondi Timoner’s “Amanda F***ing Palmer on the Rocks,” is part of a documentary subsection called Before Long.

Philippines-set crime thriller Metro Manila has scooped the top prize at the 16th Moet British Independent Film Awards in London, beating box office hit Philomena as well as The Selfish Giant, Starred Up and Le Week-end.

Metro Manila led the pack on the night with three wins including Best British Independent Film, Best Director for Sean Ellis and Best Achievement in Production.

Clearly stunned, Ellis thanked Bifa for supporting “our little holiday film” when accepting the Best Film prize and - holding back tears - dedicated the award to his mother.

The crime drama, shot in the Philippine capital in the Tagalog language with a local cast and crew, debuted at Sundance in January and is the UK’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film at the Oscars

Peter Richardson obituary

My friend Peter Richardson, who has died of cancer aged 51, was a graphic artist with a special talent for typography. Peter's designs were always elegant and considered, with a sensitive use of colour. His collage-based illustrations combined simple drawings, text and photographic elements. These varied design skills lent themselves well to animation, in particular the creation of TV titles and motion graphics, where Peter made his career.

He was born in Guiseley, West Yorkshire. After secondary school he started a degree in engineering at Manchester University, but then decided to transfer to an art foundation course at Bradford College, where he was encouraged by the tutors Grant Devine and Ian Taylor.

He went on to study illustration at Liverpool Polytechnic, where he developed his interest in drawing, collage, making handmade books, lino-cut printing and typography. While at Liverpool he played guitar for the Passmore Sisters, who released a number of

Arrow Delivers New Stripped-Down Season 2 Promo Posters

As if it isn’t enough that fans of Arrow occasionally get to see Stephen Amell (‘Oliver Queen’) engage in partial nudity, now they have three more scantily clad reasons to tune in.

The CW just released a second set of promo posters for season 2 of Arrow that feature pretty much the entire male cast looking very topless, and very ripped. I don’t remember hearing that it was a requirement for being cast on the show, but that definitely seems to be the case if we can consider these posters as evidence.

Amell, along with co-stars David Ramsey (‘Diggle’), Colton Haynes (‘Roy Harper’), and Manu Bennett (‘Slade Wilson’) are showing off a different kind of talent when they strip down for your enjoyment – and hopefully there are no complaints. Although fans of Arrow have other excuses for watching, it doesn’t hurt to add a few more in the off-season.

Exclusive: Watch Naya Rivera Sex Up Paula Abdul’s ‘Cold Hearted’ on Glee
One thing we can and should all agree on: Naya Rivera is the best part of Glee this season. Look what she did with “Nutbush City Limits.” And “Girl on Fire.” And “Mine.” And Santana is still the best bitch-slapper on the show. In Thursday’s new episode of Glee, she puts that bitch-slappery to song, dedicating Paula Abdul’s “Cold Hearted” to the talcumy hairless boy wonder Brody. Watch Vulture’s exclusive video of the performance below. It features fishnets and scaffolding, good for writhing around. You're welcome.

Glee Recap: Diva-ine Intervention [Updated]

Glee Recap: Diva-ine Intervention [Updated]
Don’t say “diva” like it’s a dirty word. I mean, if living legend Aretha Franklin was more than happy to be front and center for VH1′s “Divas Live” extravaganza, then who are the rest of us to treat it like a common four-letter word, right?

Okay, so diva-dom might also be about milquetoast Emma Pillsbury reducing Cheesecake Factory managers to tears, and Rachel Berry’s runaway ego stomping around New York City like King Kong after an expensive blowout at the salon. It could even prompt Tina Cohen-Chang to withhold her “soup” from an ailing Blaine Anderson.
