Phillip Phillips Worried His Career Was Over Because of American Idol Lawsuit — How His Wife Got Him Through the 'Scary' Time
Phillip Phillips holds the record for all-time best-selling song from an American Idol winner, but over the last several years the singer was worried his career was permanently stalled.

In early 2015, the star, 27, filed a lawsuit against Idol‘s production company 19 Entertainment, claiming they “manipulated” him into accepting jobs and were being “oppressive” about his career. Then more than a year later, 19 Entertainment hit back with a complaint alleging Phillips was holding on to as much as $1 million of their money.

“It was really tough,” Phillips — who wasn’t allowed to release new music until he reached a settlement

Nicolas Winding Refn’s Yakuza Action Feature ‘The Avenging Silence’ Gets Extensive Synopsis

With The Neon Demon now (almost completely) exorcised from Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn‘s system, he is already deep into preparing his next project. On the docket for the director is The Avenging Silence, which will apparently sate Refn’s desire to make a “big extravagant action film.” Refn also said over the summer it is loosely inspired by “Dr. No,” Ian Fleming‘s classic Bond novel, as well as William Burrough‘s “Nova Express.” An extended synopsis has now been released for the feature, which hopefully will make its way to screens by 2018.

While he has dipped into action in sections of Drive, Bronson and The Pusher Trilogy, The Avenging Silence sounds like a big step for Refn into pure spy/action genre fare. However, fans of Refn’s stylistic choices should rest assured as he has already stated his protagonist won’t say much. This time, that

Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert's Romantic Duet​ ​Will Ignite a Fire in Your Soul

Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert have shared a beautiful friendship for decades, so when Carell stopped by The Late Show on Monday night, it wasn't at all surprising that the pair showed off their deep love for one another with one of the greatest duets of our time. "People still don't know you're a great singer," Colbert said, to which Carell responded, "Well, that's not really true." It is true, and although it's not nearly as glorious as their vintage, shirtless pose-off, you won't be able to finish watching Colbert and Carell's version of Orleans's "Dance With Me" without having a big smile plastered across your face.

Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell Sang a Duet, Like Two Old Pals in Love
Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell are old pals from their Second City days, and their fondness for each other runs deep. So deep that even a routine press stop for Carell on the Late Show can't be done without turning into a full-on lovefest. It starts, like all great romances, with some flattery: "People still don't know you're a great singer," Colbert gushes. "Well, that's not really true," Carell melts. They quickly take the relationship to the next level, consummating their love with a cover of the Orleans's "Dance With Me" beneath the disco-ball lights. The message is clear: "I want to be your partner, can't you see?" Oh we see, boys. We see.

X Factor's Jamie Benkert: 'Olly Murs comparisons overshadowed my audition - but I'll take it as a positive'

The X Factor hopeful Jamie Benkert has admitted that his audition was "overshadowed" by comparisons to Olly Murs - but said that he is taking it all as a positive.

Benkert - who has actually worked as an Olly Murs tribute act - made it through to the next stage of the competition in Saturday's night show, but Simon Cowell gave him a no after noting how similar he was to Murs.

The 24-year-old later wrote on Facebook that the audition had been "badly edited" but he told Digital Spy today that he is "not annoyed" with the show.

"Obviously The X Factor's an amazing platform, it's such a platform that can really catapult a career, and I just really wanted people to just see me," he said. "I've always wanted to go on The X Factor - I've watched it for years - and it's like, 'I want to be on that stage!
