‘American Idol‘ favorite Phillip Phillips had a bit of a health scare this week. While contestants fainted left and right during the audition rounds and during Group Week in Hollywood, Phillips’ medical malady was not due to stress from the show. He was hospitalized for a pre-existing condition: kidney stones. We’ve never had ‘em ourselves, but by all accounts, they are supposedly one of the most painful things a body can endure.
On tonight’s (March 7) episode of ‘American Idol,’ the Top 13 were asked to perform songs by Whitney Houston and Stevie Wonder. The girls performed Houston’s hits, while the boys tackled Wonder’s work.
Tonight (Feb. 29) marked the second live performance episode of ‘American Idol‘ Season 11. All the girls performed this evening, with only half able to go through to next week. It was another mixed bag of talent, with country gals and torch singers sharing the stage. We also tried to keep track of how many times Randy Jackson said “Yo” but it was futile. It’s like every other word.
Katy Perry is the cover star for the March issue of Interview and the mag has shared the striking image. Lots of early chatter about the shot claims that it barely looks like Perry, but we agree and disagree with that assertion.
There’s tacky and then there is just plain wrong. The latter is certainly the case for famed supermarket tabloid The National Enquirer, which published a photo of the late Whitney Houston laying in her open casket on the cover of this week’s issue.
The 42-contestant herd on ‘American Idol‘ is being thinned out to 24: 12 girls, 12 guys. The final 24 will perform for the first time at the live shows next week. Can you believe we are already at the live shows, ‘Idol’ watchers?
Whitney Houston may have had one of the most recognizable voices in pop music, which brought her great success, fame and fortune. Apparently, the singer’s financial resources may have dwindled down to almost nothing, since her family sold footage of her celebrity-attended funeral to a variety of global media outlets.
The coaches are eager to fill their teams with the required 12 singers, so spots filled up on Week 3 of the Blind Auditions of Season 2 of ‘The Voice.’ We see them still encouraging each other to push the button for singers they think are right for the other, with Christina Aguilera often encouraging Adam Levine and Cee Lo to push their giant buzzers, while Blake Shelton muses about contestants being good-looking.
Whitney Houston‘s three-hour funeral was aired on CNN and streamed online today (Feb. 18). While pop divas like Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige were in attendance and the likes of Alicia Keys, R. Kelly and Stevie Wonder performed, it was still a traditional Baptist worship service at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, N.J., where Houston was born.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the priest said, “We gonna have church today,” and that’s just what they had while celebrating the singer’s life and her immovable faith.
Lady Gaga tweeted that she is shooting her perfume campaign this weekend, posting: “Looking forward to this weekend. Shooting my parfum campaign and commercial with Steven Klein. Will be edited to a special song.” We already know the campaign ads will be visual spectacles, since this is Gaga we’re talking about. We can’t wait until she leaks photos from the big shoot. But the billion dollar question remains: What will her signature scent smell like? Turns out it will have notes of “expensive hooker” in the recipe.
