Lili Meets a Man With Breast Cancer on Lifetime's Anthology Movie 'Five' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 11th 2011 3:00AM
Rosario Dawson, 'Five'There's a certain stigma that's been attached, and rightfully so in many dreadful cases, to Lifetime Original Movies. But the ambitious breast cancer anthology film 'Five' (Mon., 9PM ET on Lifetime), is looking to change all that. The film empowers women at one of their most difficult times through five interconnected stories of five women at five different stages of life and cancer.

The film is a true anthology, featuring five different stars and directors for each vignette. Directing were Jennifer Aniston, Patty Jenkins, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore and Penelope Spheeris, while their stories starred Jeanne Tripplehorn at the heart of all the stories as an oncologist whose mother died from breast cancer.

Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Alicia Keys Preview Breast Cancer Film 'Five' (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Oct 7th 2011 6:30PM
Lifetime's original movie 'Five,' which premieres Monday night at 9PM ET, looks at the effect breast cancer has on womens' lives in five short, interconnected films. Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys and Demi Moore, who each directed an installment, stopped by 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) to talk about the project.

None of the women are actually in 'Five,' and for Aniston, who also acted as a producer, that made it more appealing. "That was sort of what was exciting. It was also a year of taking off from acting," she said.

Demi Moore talked about directing 'Charlotte', the first of the five shorts about a girl in the '60s whose mother dies of breast cancer. "When I read it, it wasn't written from the little girl's point of view, but I felt it was essential that we bring it down to her level."

Alicia Keys Celebrates New York on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

Alicia Keys on 'Good Morning America'Alicia Keys sounded an optimistic note Tuesday morning on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC). Keys has every reason to be feeling good: she just released a reissue of her debut album, 'Songs In A Minor,' to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Keys is happily married, the mother of an 8-month-old son, and she's spreading her wings as a producer on Broadway with a play called 'Stick Fly.'

'GMA' host Robin Roberts asked Keys if all of that makes it into the music somehow. "That's what also the tenth anniversary is about, you know, the future," she said. "It's about celebrating where I've come from so we can really continue to go on into the future. Because it's going to be an incredible future."

Keys also performed her love letter to her home town, 'Empire State of Mind (Part II),' as the cabs and people passed behind her in Times Square. It made a perfect setting for a song about the city.

11-Year Old Anna Graceman Sings Her Heart Out on 'America's Got Talent' (VIDEO)

Anna Graceman, 'America's Got Talent'One of the things that never ceases to amaze us on 'America's Got Talent' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC) is how astonishingly talented some kids are. Eleven-year old Anna Graceman didn't look like a superstar when she walked out on stage, and she didn't even sound like one after her performance.

But when she sat behind that piano and belted out Alicia Keys' 'If I Ain't Got You,' it was a moment when you stand up and take notice. Like Jackie Evancho wowed people with the maturity of her opera voice, Graceman does it with a more contemporary pop sound.

So authentic and believable was her vocal performance, it was a little jarring when she came up to talk to the judges and there was just a little girl standing there. It's the kind of raw talent we don't want to wait until she's old enough for the likes of 'American Idol' to see. We want more now, and luckily so did the judges, sending her to Las Vegas and the next round.

'American Idol' - 'Seven Finalists Compete' Recap

american idol top 7 alicia keys
This season has actually gone by pretty quickly for me. Top 7? That's completely nuts, yet here we are. Plus, we get a bitchin' mentor this week: Alicia Keys. The theme this week is the nebulous, "songs of inspiration," which could either be completely ridiculous or pretty cool.

Unfortunately, it's a little bit more of the former instead of the latter. I don't know what it is, but when left to basically their own devices, these guys aren't very good at picking songs. Just about everybody gave pretty much a "take it or leave it" performance. Of course, it wouldn't be 'Idol' if there wasn't a standout or two in the crowd.

Alicia Keys Talks Success on 'Good Morning America' (VIDEO)

Alicia KeysAlicia Keys stopped by 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC) to reflect on how far she's come in the music industry in just a decade. The R&B artist, whose debut album sold 12 million records, has seen a lot of success in the entertainment industry, but don't call her ungrateful.

"I step out on that stage and all those people are out there and they're singing all the words at the top of their lungs and I cannot that ... I am constantly and perpetually in a state of shock," Keys said.

'Idol Gives Back' Line-up Announced

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 2nd 2010 1:03PM
Idol Gives Back airs on April 21stI've never been a big fan of 'American Idol.' Mostly because the show rips up the FOX schedule to the point that viewers forget programs like 'Bones' and 'House' still exist on the network. And don't get me started on what it did to the 'Glee' schedule!

Still, the show does redeem itself once a year with 'Idol Gives Back,' which raises a good deal of money for various charities ($140 million to date). This year, the program will take up the entire FOX schedule on Wednesday, April 21st with performances by Alicia Keys, regular 'Gives Back' performer Carrie Underwood, The Black Eyed Peas, Annie Lennox, and Jeff Beck.

Donations raised from the show will benefit the Children's Health Fund, Feeding America, Malaria No More, Save the Children, and the United Nations Foundation. Donations can be made via phone during the broadcast as well as online, through text messaging, and via the primitive mail service.

Oh, to make sure viewers don't think the show is too charitable, the week's voting results will be revealed and a finalist will go home during the show. Hey, they have a reputation to keep!

Alicia Keys Dishes on 'Food, Inc.' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 5th 2010 7:06PM
Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, Food Inc.Alicia Keys confirmed what we already know -- 'Food, Inc.' is a great movie that can make a big difference in your life.

"I've always been conscious about how I eat, so that just made me eat even better," she said on 'Oprah Winfrey' (weekdays, syndicated). "I'm in a great space, and I feel really positive."

You can tell, too. Seriously, it would be really hard to make Alicia Keys look bad in any way, but when a person is happy, healthy and productive, it shows in their whole persona. And thus ends our public service announcement for today.

Review: Saturday Night Live - Charles Barkley/Alicia Keys

Charles Barkley isn't much of an actor. I knew that even as a little kid, when I saw him pop up in Space Jam for all of five minutes. If anyone was expecting to be blown out of the water by Barkley's performance, they really need to reconsider if their entire life is plagued by self-sabotage, as that was clearly a silly thing to hope for and a set-up for inevitable disappointment.

Going in with low expectations made this episode easier to watch. There were a few points here and there where Barkley seemed more comfortable, and some of his pre-taped segments were pretty funny. Overall though, this wasn't a particularly memorable episode, apart from the fact it was bumped by over thirty minutes, thanks to something called the NFL.

And yes, as a young person that isn't very well-versed in sports Space Jam is my go-to reference for Barkley.

Stephen Colbert Raps with Alicia Keys on 'Colbert Report' (VIDEO)

Stephen Colbert busted a rhyme during Alicia Keys' performance of 'Empire State of Mind' on last night's 'The Colbert Report,' replacing Jay-Z's rap with one that echoed his upper middle class lifestyle.

In stark contrast to Jay-Z's original rap on the single, Colbert got gangsta bourgeoisie with lyrics like, "Shopping mall is close. My community is gated. My shorties are all private school educated."

Review: Dancing with the Stars - Performance 9 Results

by Michael Pascua, posted Nov 18th 2009 1:29AM
The final four of Dancing with the Stars
(S09E19) It's been nine weeks on Dancing with the Stars and I didn't expect to see Joanna, Kelly, or Donny around this long. Unfortunately, one of them was eliminated.

For no reason, Melissa Rycroft showed up on this results show and slipped in the professional's performance. This was probably because her fans caused an uproar since she wasn't a candidate for the Design A Dance competition. Instead of "Sabrina was robbed" we got "Melissa was robbed," and ABC listened.

It was a busy show, but the elimination was not a shocker to me. By this point, fan support outweighs the judges scores.

American Idol: Hollywood Round #3

by Kona Gallagher, posted Feb 11th 2009 1:24AM

(S08E09) Seacrest begins the show with some cold, sexy numbers. We started this season with over 103,000 American Idol hopefuls, and now, going into the last night of Hollywood week, we're down to 72. Now that we're under the century mark, we get to be fancy: the contestants have backup singers, bands, and can play instruments if they want.

The way they're doing this is pretty hardcore: Each singer takes the stage, but receives no feedback afterward. Since this is their last chance, it kind of doesn't matter if Simon makes them cry, or Randy calls them Dawg. Either they're good enough or they're not. After they're finished singing, they have to wait until the end of the day, when the entire group is broken up into two groups: those who are going forward, and those who are not. Or, those who are immediately fading into obscurity and those who will fade more slowly, singing some goofy songs while hamming it up in some sort of Ford vehicle on the way.
