Arists nominated for best original song will not be performing at this year’s Oscars. One of the nominees is allegedly outraged by this revelation. This marks the second year in a row that the Oscars have messed with these performances. Last year the songs were shortened, causing Peter Gabriel to boycott his performance, because he didn’t want to ruin his song by chopping it down. This is such a bummer. It’s one of my favorite parts of the show. Listen to the nominated songs below.
Kevin Eubanks, the guy who laughs at all of Jay Leno’s jokes, will be leaving The Tonight Show to pursue other projects. Though he is expected to be there when The Tonight Show returns on March 1st, he won’t be there much longer after that. Is Eubanks really “stepping down” or was he pushed out to breathe new life into Leno’s show? Maybe I’ve become too cynical.
Speculation is running rampant since the announcement that Chuck and Blair are going to break up after Chuck does something despicable. So what does he do? The rumor is that he cheats on Blair with Jenny Humphrey! I’m so excited! Watch the new promo below.
In a recent episode of Family Guy, one of the characters has a date with a girl that has down syndrome, and the girl’s mother is the former governor of Alaska. Sarah Palin wasn’t pleased. I hate to say that I agree with Sarah Palin about anything, but I just didn’t find it too funny. Seth Macfarlane, the creator of Family Guy, released a statement saying “from its inception, ‘Family Guy’ has used biting satire as the foundation of its humor. The show is an “equal-opportunity offender.” Watch the clip below to see Sarah Palin’s comments. I also posted a second clip which……okay I laughed a little. Dammit!
Is this really a smart move given the success of Jersey Shore? We will see. Mtv is trying to launch more scripted programming, and the new film, Turn the Beat Around, is the first step in the transition. Hopefully Mtv has learned something since the days of Undressed. Remember that cheesy soap opera they had on the air in the late 90s?
David Letterman called out the Olympic official that blamed Nodar Kumaritashvili’s tragic death on his own mistake, rather than the poorly designed track. The luge champion was said to have been concerned about the safety of the track prior to his death. Letterman stated, “I just wonder if it had anything to do with those exposed steel girders. Don’t blame the kid, for god’s sake.”
