Shania Twain & Taylor Swift, 'CMT Music Awards 2011'Twenty years later, 'Thelma & Louise' still resonates in our popular culture. Taylor Swift was one year old when the movie first came out, but she still took to a fun revamp of it with gusto for the opening of the 'CMT Music Awards 2011' (Wed., 8PM ET on CMT).

Shania Twain played Louise to Swift's Thelma as the girls headed out on a cross-country crime spree so impressive Donald Trump wanted to harness their power to control the world.

The bit also featured some other fun guest appearances along the way, including Chord Overstreet and Kenny Rogers as a crusty old pervert.

Hoda Gets a Little Too Into Shania Twain Karaoke on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Hoda Sings Shania Twain (Poorly) on 'Today'During a segment called "iHoda's Playlist" on the fourth hour of 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Hoda Kotb sang along to Shania Twain's 'Any Man of Mine' ... with only a moderate degree of accuracy.

Kotb seemed to forget most of the words to the song. So, she mumbled what little she could recall, danced in her seat and beat time on the desk instead. Eventually, she remembered a portion of the tune and belted it out with gusto.

Shania Twain Tears Up Remembering the Accident That Killed Her Parents (VIDEO)

'Why Not? with Shania Twain' series premiereEverybody else has their own reality show, so why not Shania Twain? Oprah Winfrey must have agreed, because now we have the premiere of 'Why Not? With Shania Twain' (Sun., 11PM ET on OWN). Maybe the name of her show was her response when she was approached about doing a reality series.

Twain proved very honest and open in front of the camera, talking about her divorce and her family's financial struggles growing up. She even became emotional at one point when talking about the death of her parents in a car accident in 1987.

Twain was 8-10 hours away when the accident happened. "They explained to me on the phone that they were dead. That they died in the car accident."

Shania Twain Won't Let Ex-Friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud See Her Son (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 3rd 2011 11:55PM
Shania Twain on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show'Singer Shania Twain has lived through a strange soap opera the past several years, one that saw her divorced from her producer husband, Robert "Mutt" Lange, over an alleged affair with Twain's friend and Lange's assistant, Marie-Anne Thiebaud. Though the affair has never been admitted to publicly, there are still plenty of hard feelings for Twain, who is now married to Thiebaud's ex-husband (Swiss business executive Frederic Thiebaud).

Twain was on Tuesday's 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated) and said that she has made a deal with Lange that Thiebaud will never come in contact with their son, Eja. "That's an agreement that we have,"Twain said. "I basically said that Eja will never be a part of her life and you'll just have to accept that now, or we'll all move so far away to the other end of the planet ... I did threaten there, I have to admit."

Twain's rationale was that she and Eja had had enough exposure to someone Twain feels took her happiness. The story already seems complicated enough without that kind of awkward family reunion.

'American Idol' Rumor Mill: J-Lo Still in the Running, But So Is Shania Twain

by Scott Harris, posted Aug 13th 2010 1:05PM
The nation's biggest tornado of backroom whispers and unsubstantiated rumors since Watergate continues to engulf Hollywood, as the search to fill the seats of outgoing 'American Idol' judges Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres has taken a new twist.

Despite reports just two days ago that rumored replacement Jennifer Lopez had talked herself out of the job due to excessive contract demands, don't count her out just yet. Today's rumors insist that yesterday's rumors were nonsense. The source of the last info, as told to Entertainment Weekly? The amazingly versatile and tremendously active unnamed 'American Idol' "insider."

"Don't believe everything you read," Hollywood's busiest anonymous source cautioned. "[The Lopez rumors] may simply be a case of one diva's rep slinging mud to make another potential candidate look like a diva. There are a million agendas swirling out there, and a lot of camps aren't above using rumor and speculation to advance their causes."

'American Idol' - 'Top Six Compete' Recap

American Idol, season 9, top 6 perform
There are six contestants left on 'American Idol,' and everyone did really well tonight, which means it's anyone's guess who will go home. After noting that a whopping $45 million was raised on 'Idol Gives Back' last week, Ryan Seacrest introduced this week's mentor, Shania Twain, and we got right into the performances.

Lee DeWyze, 'You're Still the One.' Per Shania's suggestion, Lee starts the song with just voice and piano, adding in guitar later. It sounds a little forced to me, but I like the ending. Randy Jackson says it's one of his favorite songs of all time, and Lee found a way to make it his own. Ellen DeGeneres agrees, saying "you couldn't look cuter" and "all aboard the Shania Twain!" Kara DioGuardi likes that Lee cracked a smile a few times, and Simon Cowell thinks it was "absolutely the perfect song" for Lee. Then Simon and Kara started arguing about whether Lee smiled or had some other weird facial thing going on. He was smiling! He's still just a little nervous!

Oprah Unveils New OWN Lineup Featuring Shania Twain

by Scott Harris, posted Apr 8th 2010 1:00PM
Hot on the heels of today's news that Oprah Winfrey would be following up 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' with a new prime time series titled 'Oprah's Next Chapter' comes word of an entire new lineup of shows from the media powerhouse. And headlining the list? None other than country sensation Shania Twain.

According to a press release issued by OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network), the network, which is scheduled to begin airing programming on Jan. 1, has lined up five new shows, including 'Why Not? With Shania Twain,' which will follow the country star's comeback attempt reality-show style.

That attempt is also apparently getting some more help from 'American Idol,' as TV Guide is reporting that the singer, who appeared as a guest judge during auditions earlier this season, will be returning to America's most popular TV show to mentor contestants in an upcoming episode.

Who Should Replace Kevin Eubanks On 'The Tonight Show'? Our 8 Choices

by Steve Baltin, posted Feb 17th 2010 1:30PM
Kevin EubanksJay Leno may have got his coveted 11:35PM 'Tonight Show' time slot back, but he'll be looking for a new band leader shortly after he goes back to late night on March 1. Kevin Eubanks, the jazz guitarist who's been with Leno since 1992 and took over over for Branford Marsalis as band leader in 1995, is expected to leave the show sometime in March to resume his recording and touring career.

Since Leno and Eubanks teamed up in 1992, the ante has been upped tremendously for late-night musicians, with Conan O'Brien first bringing in E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg to head his band. And then Jimmy Fallon found the best part of his show, convincing revered hip-hop group the Roots to be the house group.

Reviewcap: American Idol - Auditions #3: Chicago

(S03E09) We begin the show with Frank Sinatra's, "Chicago," which puts me in a good mood, but it's ruined by a bunch of never-weres sharing their heavily-bleeped opinions of American Idol and the judges. However, I am quickly buoyed by the woman waiting in line who says confidently to the camera, "I believe I have what it takes to become America's Next Top Model." God Bless you, ma'am. Thank you for being real and saying what no one else will: sometimes it's just about being on TV.

You would think that since it's the 3rd time Idol has held auditions in Chicago, that we would end up with a great group of talent, but you would be wrong. They may have used up most of the good ones the first two times, because Chicago doesn't actually turn out too many golden tickets.

Martina McBride mentors Top 7 Idol contestants during country week

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Apr 16th 2007 6:04PM
Martina McBrideThis week, Martina McBride will be coaching the remaining seven Idol finalists with their country music selections. McBride, considered the "Celine Dion of country music," will also perform her Top-5 single "Anyway" during Wednesday's live results show (April 18) on FOX.

Oh boy, this is going to be a rough week for me. I'm not much of a country music fan, so the songs aren't going to be familiar (unless they all perform Shania Twain or Faith Hill). The contestants already butchered Latin-themed music last week, under the guidance of Jennifer Lopez. But, I have a feeling that this week could be worse.
