The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Blood, Sweat and Especially Tears

The Voice Top 10 Performance Recap: Blood, Sweat and Especially Tears
Has Mark Isaiah become the Sanjaya Malakar of The Voice? Going into Monday’s performances by Season 12’s Top 10, it certainly seemed so. Though more than half of you who voted in our elimination poll last week would have sent the Austin Mahone wannabe packing, he remained in the contest, the recipient of a puzzling instant save. Did he finally hit upon a song that would allow him to win something more than Adam Levine’s admiration and fourth place in a high school talent show? Did Vanessa Ferguson Riri-cover from her “Diamonds” misstep? Did Chris Blue manage to top

Landline Review [Sundance 2017]

Jenny Slate and director Gillian Robespierre did some fantastic work together with 2014’s Obvious Child, a film that was a hit at that year’s Sundance Film Festival and launched Slate’s career into the mainstream. It captured the quirks, stigmas, alienation, if you will, of the millennial generation in both new and surprising ways.

If that film felt assured and confident in its delivery, then Landline feels like quite the opposite. It stars Slate, Edie Falco, John Turturro, Jay Duplass and Abby Quinn and is much more ambitious in scope to Child, as it tackles numerous New York City characters who are looking for some kind of existential meaning to their dreadfully meaningless existence by resorting to lying and infidelity. Here come the indie cliches.

Set in 1995 Manhattan, the film makes sure to hint at the fact that this was a time when there was no internet, no cellphones,

5 Other Times the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Has Split Up Famous Groups

5 Other Times the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Has Split Up Famous Groups
Nile Rodgers is being honored at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, despite the fact that the groundbreaking funk and disco act he fronted, Chic, will not be joining him. It’s a bit odd for one person to be inducted without their musical brethren, but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a habit of actually doing the opposite of what happened to poor Chic — inducting bands and ignoring the things that their respective members have gone on to do.

We begin tonight’s recap of The Voice by congratulating death and taxes on finding a new friend to travel with them down Life’s Certainties Blvd.

Dave Holmes Looks Back at the Fetch Hits of Summer 1986, When Lindsay Lohan Arrived in the World
Mean Girls was released ten years ago today, which is a thing that should make us all feel very, very old. And sure, I could get into my DeLorean Gif and fly back to that week in pop-music history, but I’ve already done hard time in 2004 for an earlier installment of my Somewhere in Time column, and I just don’t have a second thing to say about Usher’s “Yeah!” Instead, let’s head back to July 2, 1986, and check out what Billboard’s Top 40 songs were the week a couple of scrappy young dreamers named Dina and Michael Lohan welcomed a daughter named Lindsay into the world. Hey, anybody know what happened to those three guys?40. Steve Winwood, “Higher Love” There are so, so many middle-aged white guys on this chart. That’s who we supported, us record-buying teenagers of the ’80s, because we had no other choice.

The Voice: First Night of Battle Rounds Includes Strategic Steals

The Voice: First Night of Battle Rounds Includes Strategic Steals
The first night of battle rounds on The Voice exposed one thing about the Season 6 coaches. They are quickly looking to be strategic and showed it with their steals.

Blake Shelton went after an old-school soul singer with a trademark high kick, Biff Gore, a father of six, who lost his battle to soulful T.J. Wilkins on Team Usher.

Shakira picked up a Joe Cocker-esque blues man, Patrick Thomson, who fell in a tight contest against Kat Perkins from Team Adam.

And after Usher landed himself a baby-faced metal rocker in Stevie Jo, Adam Levine stole heartthrob Jake Barker.

'The Voice' Recap: Battle Rounds Part 1 Shakira Steals Patrick Thomson From Team Adam, Adam Saves Jake Barker

The Voice finally began the competition portion of the show with the first episode of Battle Rounds, with Shakira stealing Patrick Thomson and Adam Levine stealing Jake Barker.

Coaches Usher and Blake Shelton both had two battles on Monday night, meaning they let go of two of their artists, and Adam and Shakira only let go of one each.

First up in Team Usher were Biff Gore and Tj Wilkins. The R&B singers battled with The Temptations’ classic “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” and Usher instructs them to try to sing their hearts out to beg for Shakira’s attention. Both men went into the ring with their A game, dancing and delivering well-rounded entertainment. In the end, Usher decided to keep Tj on his team, leaving Biff free to steal or free to go home. Lucky for him, Blake pushed his button, using his first steal of

'The Voice' Season 6, episode 7: The battle rounds begin

On Monday (March 17), Season 6 of "The Voice" left the blind auditions behind and moved into the battle rounds, with coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher and Shakira -- alongside mentors Aloe Blacc, The Band Perry, Jill Scott and Miranda Lambert, respectively -- pairing up two of their team's artists for the next hurdle: Two artists enter the stage, one artist leaves. Unless, of course, the infamous steal comes into play. So who advanced, who went home and who was lucky enough to be stolen? Let's get to it.

First Battle: Biff Gore. vs T.J. Wilkins (Team Usher)

Song: "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" (The Temptations)

Ranking All 55 Grammy Winners For Record Of The Year

The Grammys! They’re this coming Sunday and I almost forgot! To celebrate, here are all 55 winners of the Record of the Year Grammy ranked for your consideration. Now beat it.

55. “Don’t Worry Be Happy,” Bobby McFerrin

Finger-snapping never sounded so un-snappy.

54. “Rosanna,” Toto

You know, a Grammy windfall was bound to happen one of those exactly 1982 bands (Air Supply, Foreigner, Reo Speedwagon, etc), and Toto was the big winner. “Rosanna” is fun, but Grammy-worthy?

53. “Sunny Came Home,” Shawn Colvin

You know, a Grammy windfall was bound to happen to one of those exactly 1998 female singer-songwriters (Meredith Brooks, Natalie Imbruglia, Paula Cole, etc.), and Shawn Colvin was the big winner. “Sunny Came Home” is contemplative, but Grammy-worthy?

52. “Change the World,” Eric Clapton

Sort of annoying when a legendary artist wins for his most palatable and forgettable material. “Change the World” is merely radio-friendly, not an artistic breakthrough.

51. “We are the World,

The Voice Names A Surprise Winner

The winner of this year’s Voice UK contest is Leanne Mitchell, the big-voiced crooner who was one of her team mentor Sir Tom Jones’ favourites from the start.

This was a surprise to everyone, not least the singer herself, after the joint favourites going into the weekend's show had been Bo Bruce and Tyler James.

But Leanne did her coach proud with It’s A Man’s World and then matched him octave for octave on their duet Mama Told Me Not To Come.

The Voice final: live blog

Join me from 7.20pm on Saturday as Leanne, Tyler, Bo and Vince sing it out for £100,000 and a record deal

Good evening, and welcome to The Voice final: the liveblog. These last three months have been a rollercoaster - albeit one of those rollercoasters where everyone jumps off halfway through because they're so incredibly bored - and it's all been leading up to this point. Tonight we'll discover who'll win The Voice and receive a record company contract. Given that nobody actually watches The Voice any more, it'll probably be a contract to clean windows, but beggars can't really be choosers at this point.

So who'll win tonight? Well, it won't be favourites Jaz Ellington, Ruth Brown or Becky Hill -  because they all got booted off on Sunday during a genuinely shocking results show. So it's either going to be Bo, Vince, Leanne or Tyler. It's anyone's game. Except for Tyler's.

The Voice first live show: live blog

Join Stuart Heritage as he liveblogs the first of the live shows – featuring coaches Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J, and Will.i.am

Welcome one and all to The Voice liveblog. What a journey we've been on so far. We've seen the blind auditions, where the contestants were picked on their vocal ability alone. We've had the battle round, where the coaches got to weed out the ugly ones. And now we're here - the live finals.

Over the next six weeks, the 20 remaining singers will be gradually whittled down to just one ultimate victor. Their reward is a recording contract. Although, judging by the awful noise they all made during last week's battle round, it might be a contract to record a new car alarm or the soundtrack to a legally dubious military torture session. We'll just have to wait and see.

Because there are so many acts left,

Dancing On Ice 2010: 14 February Show, Liveblogged

  • Unreality
Somehow, in a bid to make the Sunday-evening-eating monster that is Dancing On Ice even more unpalatable, ITV have chosen to hire Michael Ball to replace Robin Cousins.

Anyway, we’re covering Dancing On Ice live tonight – this post will have judge’s comments, a scoreboard and some of my own commentary on each act. Enjoy! And leave loads of comments!

Scoreboard

Judges scores for tonight’s show are as follows:

Hayley Tamaddon and Daniel Whiston – 26.0 Gary Lucy and Maria Filippov – 21.0 Daniella Westbrook and Matthew Gonzalez – 20.0 Kieron Richardson and Brianne Delcourt – 19.5 Mikey Graham and Melanie Lambert – 18.5 Danny Young and Frankie Poultney – 17.0 Sharron Davies and Pavel Aubrecht – 15.0 Emily Atack and Fred Palascak – 13.5 Hilary Jones and Alexandra Schauman – 12.0 Commentary

Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett Experience a Higher Love

Kendra Wilkinson and her husband-to-be Hank Baskett have been experiencing some serious hang time lately. The former Girls Next Door girl—who's marrying her Philadelphia Eagles beau at the Playboy Mansion in June—reveals on her official Web site how the couple's relationship took a big leap forward while the two were parasailing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico not too long ago. "The story behind hank's and my i love you's is definitely a good one!" Wilkinson recalls.
