Strictly Come Dancing 2017: the launch night – as it happened

Glitter gang, unite! Strictly is back and there’s a whole new batch of ballroom stars waiting to be paired with their partners. You joined us for every sparkling second

8.41pm BST

So that was the first instalment. There might not have been any big stars, but there was charm, glitter and great moves by the bucketful. Thanks very much for joining me. Here’s a final thought from sojomo.

I had forgotten how long it goes on.

Legs crossed time.

Must remember for the coming weeks: really shouldn't have so much to drink.

8.36pm BST

So judging by the group dance to Kenny Loggins’s Footloose, Chizzy is a useful mover, Debbie McGee can dance, Charlotte Hawkins has all the animation of a fossil and the hip-thrusting Rev is this year’s Ed Balls.

8.34pm BST

So that’s it, everyone’s paired off and Strictly 2017 can commence. Bruno

Ballerina (aka Leap!) movie review: lowering the barre

MaryAnn’s quick take… Cheesy Euro ballerina-porn cartoon is full of dated animation, cringeworthy attempts at humor, bizarre anachronisms, and a terrible message for little kids. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about girls and women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Ballet. It’s not that difficult, Anyone can dance ballet — I’m talking world-class ballet, not gradeschoolers twirling in tutus — as long as they really really want to. Everyone knows this.

That’s why it’s so easy for Felicie (the voice of Elle Fanning: The Beguiled, Live by Night), a tween orphan in late 1880s France who runs away to a Disney-esque Parisland, to lie and cheat her way into a ballet school at the prestigious Paris Opera, get cast in a production of The Nutcracker, and perform without benefit of a single rehearsal.

Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder and More Pay Tribute to Tony Bennett for His 90th Birthday Celebration

Most people are barely able to blow out the candles on their cake when they turn 90, but that’s hardly the case with Tony Bennett, whose landmark birthday was celebrated in an all-star concert taped Sept. 15 at Radio City Music Hall. In this celebratory evening of music, the nonagenarian singer — whose career is still going strong — demonstrated his formidable lung power with a trademark rendition of “Fly Me to the Moon,” performed sans amplification. Considering the vastness of the venue, that’s no small feat. The show, called Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come,...

Watch a 14-Year-Old Liam Payne Flirt with His Now-Pregnant Girlfriend Cheryl During Their First Meeting

Watch a 14-Year-Old Liam Payne Flirt with His Now-Pregnant Girlfriend Cheryl During Their First Meeting
She’s pregnant with their first child, but when British singer Cheryl first met future boyfriend Liam Payne, romance was nowhere on their radar.

The year was 2008, and Payne was just 14 years old at the time — auditioning in front of Cheryl, Simon Cowell and Irish entertainment manager Louis Walsh for the U.K. version of The X-Factor.

He would be cut a few rounds later, but Payne told judges he was “here to win” during his first audition. He then launched into a smooth cover of Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” — even winking at Cheryl during his performance.

Timeless Bosses Talk Casting Abe Lincoln, Nixing Marilyn Monroe
Timeless is raising the dead — and famous.

The new NBC drama will time-travel to the day of Abraham Lincoln’s assassination during Monday’s episode (airing at 10/9c), before setting its sights on Sinatra, JFK and more — but not Marilyn Monroe — in future installments.

‘Star Trek’ 50th Anniversary: Cast, Creators, Fans Choose Favorite Episodes

‘Star Trek’ 50th Anniversary: Cast, Creators, Fans Choose Favorite Episodes
When “Star Trek” premiered 50 years ago today, its reception was colder than the weather outside the Klingon penal colony on Rura Penthe.

“And away we go to another planet for the sci-fi buffs to lick the plate clean,” Variety‘s Sept. 8, 1966 review of the premiere episode, “The Man Trap,” declared. “But there had better be a hefty cargo of them or the Nielsen samplers may come up short.” Predicting doom, it continued, “The opener won’t open up many new frequencies after this sampler.” So not exactly boffo.

The review was typical of the initial response to Gene Roddenberry’s science fiction drama. After a troubled development that saw the initial pilot scrapped and a new one with mostly new characters — the only holdover being Leonard Nimoy’s Spock — created from scratch, “Star Trek” hung on for a short while, renewed for a second, then a third season before being cancelled.

The 10 Best Concerts of 2015
This month Vulture will be publishing our critics’ year-end lists. So far we've covered TV, movies, albums, songs, books, theater, art, classical performances, and video games. Today we add podcasts and concerts*. 1. Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga at Radio City Music Hall (June 22)A stirring, stunning homecoming for two New York legends — one reigning and one rising. The night’s most goose-bump-inducing moment was a tie between an elegant, post-Oscar-performance-redemption Gaga slaying “La Vie en Rose” and the incomparable Tony belting out “Fly Me to the Moon,” dedicated to his old friend Frank. 2. Jenny Hval at Basilica Soundscape Hudson (September 12)Basilica Soundscape in Hudson is fast becoming one of my favorite music festivals, because unlike the sensory overload of larger gatherings, it's refreshingly chill. Readings and art exhibits mingle seamlessly with music, and Norwegian songwriter Jenny Hval’s wonderful performance felt like a combination of all those things. While reciting

Fathers & Daughters movie review: fit to be family tied

It’s all rather implausible and hugely melodramatic as it milks ham-fisted histrionics from high soap opera. A pitiable excuse for a movie. I’m “biast” (pro): really like Russell Crowe

I’m “biast” (con): …though he’s been trying my patience lately

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

In 1989 New York (or, well, Pittsburgh standing in, unconvincingly, for New York), Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jake Davis (Russell Crowe: The Water Diviner, Noah) and his young daughter (Kylie Rogers) stumble through their grief over losing his wife, her mother in a car accident. The crash has left Jake with a combination of manic depression, palsy, and seizures brought on, apparently, by guilt (he was driving and distracted) and brain injury. It’s rather implausible and hugely melodramatic, which is all this pitiable excuse for a movie is concerned with: milking ham-fisted histrionics from high soap opera.

Strictly Come Dancing: All the dances, judges' comments and scores from Week 4

Strictly Come Dancing is now into its fourth week and the competition is really hotting up, with an incredibly close leaderboard.

Digital Spy was watching along and have rounded up all of the scores and judges' comments below:

1. Anita Rani and Gleb Savchenko dancing the samba to 'Hips Don't Lie by Shakira: 6+7+7+7=27

Len: "Your hips certainly don't lie. A little bit long getting started but once you got into it… I thought you coped very well. I think it could have been better leg action, but I'm being pernickety."

Bruno: "That was warming up nicely. The samba has a carefree feel to it, but a couple of times there you got a little tangled and it kind of stopped it a little bit. The technique is actually very very hard. It was a bit on and off."

Romantic comedy “Heartbreaker” released in 2010 grossing over $47 million worldwide, including $31.9 million in France. It won five Cesar awards in 2011, including Best Film and Best First Film.

French director Pascal Chaumeil, best known for the 2010 romantic comedy hit Heartbreaker (L’Arnacoeur), has died aged 54.
