Reza Farahan and his two favorite Persian Princesses, Asa Soltan Rahmati and Lilly Ghalichi, hit the red carpet with a slew of other reality TV stars on Monday. Yesterday was Day 2 of NBCUniversal's '2013 Winter TCA Tour', held at the Langham Hotel.
"This is The Voice!" I don't know what it is lately, but I can't help but get these awful theme songs stuck in my head. Don't get me wrong, I love the premise behind NBC's answer to American Idol (and watching Adam Levine and Blake Shelton isn't too shabby either!), but couldn't they have come up with a better hook? It is a music competition after all!
The show is gearing up yet again to premiere in March, and this time aroundCee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera are taking a break. Good riddance to Xtina and her witchy ways! Replacing the duo will be Usher and Shakira, and while I'll miss Cee Lo, I think these two will be a fun, easy mix with Adam and Blake.
In a recent interview, the four judges, old and new, discuss what we can expect from the upcoming season. Adam admits that he underestimated Shakira's spunk, and Usher, who is responsible for giving us The Biebs, reveals that finding new talent is more difficult than he expected. The blind auditions have all been taped, but the live portion of the show will resume taping in the spring.
"Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good. So many people witness atrocities and can't take their eyes away from them, but that doesn't mean they're good. That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That's. Ever. Happened."
"It's complete f–king ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F–k those people. You can put that in the magazine: F–k those idiots. They're just the worst. Sorry, I'm so sensitive to that — like, I don't know, man, it's upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, 'F–k those people!'"
Ouch. Things are not looking good for this season'sX Factor and all signs are pointing to Khloe Kardashian as the reason. It's no secret that pretty much everyone in the world is so sick of this overexposed family, but I would have thought this hosting gig would perhaps legitimize Khloe since it's not actually a mind numbing E! reality show that follows around her family as they get married do nothing…vapidly.
It seems that many X Factor viewers have expressed their disdain for Khloe getting the gig, and ratings have been Plummeting (yes, it's so bad I needed a capital P) since she joined the show. I know what you're thinking…she's only been on the two live episodes thus far. That's what makes it even worse!
Simon Cowell is being blamed for bamboozling Fox into thinking that Khole would be a fan favorite who would boost ratings. Little did he know that instead she would bring a boycott.
The Voice mentor Cee Lo Green stopped by the Rachael Ray Show to dish on his job, his pets and his co-stars. We have a sneak peek at the interview, which airs today, October 22nd.
CeeLo on his pets Perfect and Lady: “Perfect is at home in LA and I’m going to have to start working out travel provisions for the animals because wherever I’m at people are always asking about Perfect or Lady.”
CeeLo on leaving “The Voice": “We are going to take a hiatus for season 4, but we are going to be back. Some people don’t realize that it was something that’s agreed upon and amicable. We’ll be back.“
Reality shows are still big business and today's list of series renewals proves just that.
TLC announced today that they have ordered additional episodes of the surprise hit series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo"! The first half of season 1's finale is tonight, but TLC promises they will be back with several more episodes! In a statement they shared, "Alana and her family have become a pop culture phenomenon. What you see is what you get, and we are excited to share even more of their unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers."
Love it or hate it, Honey Boo Boo and her crew aren't going away anytime soon!
Old coaches are out and new coaches are in on The Voice… and we didn't have to endure months of speculation surrounding possible new coaches? Not even a single, "How about Charlie Sheen?" plea for attention! WOW.
We turn around our chairs and give The Voice a standing ovation.
It's true. Just like that, sources say the The Voice has secured Usher and Shakira as coaches for next season's spring cycle. They will step in for Cee Lo Greenand Christina Aguilera, who both need a break from the hit show to pursue other projects.
Demi, L.A., Britney and Simon also participated in a Handprint Ceremony before the premiere. Seems a little early to be cementing their "iconic" status when the show is only beginning its second season, no?
Simon is pulling out all the stops, making sure everyone knows that The X Factor starts this week!
