Super Duper Super Bowl 2011 Predictions

by Dr. Ryan Vaughan, PhD (no, seriously), posted Feb 6th 2011 11:45AM
Super Bowl XLVIt's one of the biggest TV weekends of the year. Outside of the big 'Say Yes to the Dress' finale, no other television events elicits more anticipation and preparation leading up to the actual show.

The hype builds for weeks and weeks. People and analysts alike are forced to stretch what should be a few minutes of discussion and analysis into a two week, soul-crushing marathon of overused cliches -- like "Give 110 percent," "We just need to play our game" and "Hey! Don't touch me there!" -- and washed up "experts" just trying to scrape together enough money to pay the minimum on their baby mama's credit card bill.

Advertisers clamor for this day like little girls (and writers of this article) do for even a glimpse of Justin Bieber's impish smile and signature hair-flip, dropping millions and millions of dollars to attempt to wow America with 30 seconds of cheeky anthropomorphic cartoon animals and a hollow, over-produced, lip-synced, celebrity half-time extravaganza that generally feels like some sort of cruel public mass-torture ploy to punish everyone.

Oh yeah... and there's a football game thrown in there somewhere too, and here are some of my predictions for the big day.

Erin Triumphs With Fergie Cover on 'The City' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted May 19th 2010 6:47PM
Olivia and Erin have very different ideas on how to dress Fergie for an Elle cover shoot, leaving creative director Joe Zee in the middle, in the latest episode of 'The City' (Tue., 10PM ET on MTV).

Everyone seems to support Olivia's cover, with Fergie in black bra, hot pants and jacket, and with jewelry. Erin prefers the more conservative approach, highlighting Fergie's natural beauty. But Joe thinks that the ensemble works, especially the jewelry. "You don't think the diamonds made the cover?" he asks Erin. "I think Fergie's body made the cover." In the end, Erin's cover wins out. Which do you prefer?

Black Eyed Peas Tackle Comedy, Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Saturday Night Live' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 16th 2009 10:37AM
Who knew the 'Black Eyed Peas' had it in them? In this clip from 'Saturday Night Live,' the Peas fly into a rage at Kathie Lee Gifford's poor singing and get some payback for ringing eardrums everywhere.

As part of a sketch parodying the fourth hour of 'Today', Kristen Wiig belted out a song as Gifford and profoundly irritated animals within hearing distance as well as the Peas who were standing nearby. Fergie delivered a vicious left-hook, and Will.i.am brought a diving elbow drop, but it still wasn't enough to silence Gifford.

American Idol: Idol Gives Back 2008

Miley Cyrus(S07E29) Well, this is what you've all been waiting for, right? What's that? Finale? Yeah, I guess that'll be cool, too. But if you've listened to Ryan all season then you know TONIGHT is really what it's all about! If you're looking to find out who got eliminated by vote last night you're going to have to wait until tomorrow. But if you're looking for two-and-a-half hours of entertainment chock full of celebrities and song and charity, then you're looking for "Idol Gives Back."

Last year's inaugural edition was very good, and Kristin's report of the Idol Gives Back taping from this past Sunday was also very positive. We don't have any pesky (non) eliminations to deal with like last year, so just kick back, donate and enjoy. And, if you want, join us online and chat about it in real-time with other giving Idol fans.

You can join the chat starting just before 7:30/6:30pm CDT by following this link. Look for the full episode review right here later tonight.

So You Think You Can Dance: Week 3 Results

by Brett Love, posted Jun 29th 2007 5:00AM
neil haskell - so you think you can dance(S03E11) After a crazy performance show it was only natural to expect that anything could happen on elimination night. Things started out normally enough with a group performance to "The Lion's Hunt" from the Lion King soundtrack, choreographed by Tyce Diorio.

It was not my favorite of the group performances, but it was fun. The thing I found interesting was that, like last week, this one also ended with the focus on Sabra. I'm taking that as a subliminal message for people to vote for her. She's quickly becoming my favorite in the competition.

I knew that oversexualized gyration looked familiar... - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted May 21st 2007 7:01PM
Nicole ScherzingerFor a disturbingly long time now, I've been bothered by the Pussycat Dolls. Every time I pass a poster of the girls, a marquee boasting their name, or their extremely well-supported racks on the CD racks (sorry, I had to), I feel a sting of recognition in singer Nicole Scherzinger. Had I seen her in an ad for a late-night hotline or Olive Garden once upon a time? Or passed her in the street years ago? These moments of confusion were brief and fleeting, because I have bigger things to worry about and, well, I have a short attention span. It wasn't until I recently stumbled across Scherzinger's Wikipedia page that I remembered the WB and its reality show, Popstars.

The royal Fergie invited to dance with the stars

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 12th 2006 8:05PM
Sarah FergusonThe former Duchess of York and Weight Watchers spokeswoman Sarah Ferguson has publicly stated her love of ABC's Dancing with the Stars, the American version of Brit hit Strictly Come Dancing. In response, producer Conrad Green has offered the affable redhead a place in next season's line-up. Green has said that Fergie would add a "touch of class to the proceedings" and suggested that a romance might spark between the ex-royal and her dancing partner. Sounds like wishful thinking to me. A British accent does not "class" make except maybe on American television so, alright, she might "class" the joint up.

The implication of the announcement is that Fergie has accepted the invite, but royal watchers shouldn't get excited just yet. The word isn't official, and Fergie has a heavy schedule of waving politely and counting meal points.

Fergie sucks the life out of the Billboard Awards - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 6th 2006 1:32PM
fergieDid you watch the Billboard Awards on Monday night? Me neither. Thank goodness. There's a clip of Fergie performing her atrocious "Fergalicous" song with absolutely no energy whatsoever. After watching her lifeless performance of what should be a high energy song, I am convinced that she's nothing but eye candy. She can shake her ass and her boobs in the camera for music videos, but when it comes to stage presence, girl ain't got none. She walked out on the stage and stood there as dancers bounced and lights flashed all around her. The director couldn't even hide Fergie's performance with a bunch of zooming cameras. About two-thirds into her song, she seems to forget the words. I sure hope this chick's 15 minutes are up.

Now Paris has dropped out of the Billboard Awards

by Anna Johns, posted Dec 3rd 2006 9:46AM
paris hiltonParis Hilton has followed Britney Spears' lead by backing out of her hosting gig for Fox's Billboard Music Awards. Unlike Brit Brit, who didn't give a reason, Paris apparently quit the show because she didn't like the jokes that were written for her. She says that she didn't appreciate making jokes about people who are her friends. She couldn't come to an agreement with the producers about her scripts, so she quit.

This behavior pretty much goes along the lines of what Tina Fey told Howard Stern recently. She said that Paris takes herself way too seriously (oh, and she is stupid and sheds fake hair).

The hostless Billboard Music Awards air Monday on Fox at 8 pm. Musical guests include Janet Jackson, The Killers, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Mary J. Blige, Nickelback, and Ludacris featuring Pharrell and Young Jeezy.

Fergie headlines New Year's Rockin' Eve 2007

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 28th 2006 7:32PM
FergieMan, this year's going fast, isn't it? It seems like just yesterday we were all speculating on how well Dick Clark did on New Year's Rockin' Eve 2006, his first public appearance since his stroke. Now, ABC is announcing the lineup for New Year's Rockin' Eve 2007, which Clark will co-host with New Dick Clark, otherwise known as Ryan Seacrest.

The biggest name joining the lineup is Fergie, singer for the Black Eyed Peas, who currently has a hit solo album. Her song "Supersonic" (er, I mean "Fergalicious"... those songs sound so much alike, I get confused) is also burning up the Billboard charts. She'll perform as well as introduce performances by Meat Loaf, Natasha Bedingfield, and Latin sensation RBD.

The fact that I'm even aware that the song "Fergalicious" exists is proof of how it has permeated everyone's existence (I'm not a big hip-hop fan). Looks like Clark is playing the hot hand, as usual. Not bad for a seventy-seven year old guy who can barely speak anymore.

Who's that girl?

by Anna Johns, posted Sep 11th 2006 9:44AM

I was over at RetroJunk the other day, watching opening sequences to my favorite '80s cartoons, when I came across this little gal. I used to watch her on a certain Disney Channel program that had singing and dancing kids on it and, when I saw her again I instantly recognized her as someone who is pretty darn famous today.

Who is she?
