British boy band The Wanted performed a cover of Tori Kelly’s “Fill A Heart” on Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars. The proceeds of the band’s cover will go to the “Child Hunger Ends Here” campaign.
The Wanted’s Tom Parker later tweeted about their performance:
Loved performing on DWTS. And it was for a real worthy cause. Visit childhungerendshere.com to make a difference x

Missing from the group was Nathan Parker who is still recovering from throat surgery.
WATCH THE PERFORMANCE HERE
Selena Gomez revealed to her fans that she intends to focus on acting for a little while but she still took time to perform “Hit the Lights” with her band The Scene on Dancing with the Stars.
Selena looks GORG in her gold and black strapless dress and we love her bedazzled mic. However, the song doesn’t really showcase her voice. In fact, we can barely hear her! The music and her background singers are so loud her voice is nearly drowned out.
Watch the performance here:
Rob Kardashian says he was just joking around with the paparazzi after he was handcuffed for chasing down one down this past weekend. But Rob doesn’t look like he was joking in the TMZ video, nor should he have been. In the video, the paparazzi exclaimed to cops “He tried to kill me!”
Okay, hush, it wasn’t that bad…
The paparazzi was snooping on Rob while the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant was in a heated argument with a lady. Understandably, the guy didn’t welcome the fixed camera with open arms and say “hey, wanna get a better camera angle on this fight?” Instead, Rob took the Alpha male approach and chased the paparazzi all the way into a nearby shop where the police cuffed Rob.
On one hand, Rob makes his living off people watching his life unfold. His private and public life are seemingly indecipherable so he has to have some level of acceptance. However, the paparazzi also shouldn’t be surprised if their sleazy antics backfire.
Chasing the paparazzi wasn’t the best solution but do you think it was understandable?
In andPOP’s new “Hit and Miss” column, Portia Baladad, chronicles the best and worst in celebrity news. This week she tackles Hulk Hogan’s sex tape (gag) and gushes over Prince Harry.
Prince Harry goes on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Tour
He’s touring the Caribbean in the Queen’s place, looking dashing and acting very prince-like. Surprisingly, no controversy here.
Oprah lands an interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter
Oprah gets Bobbi Kristina Brown, 19, to open up on Houston’s death for her non-Oprah Show show. After all, Oprah may have “retired” but she’s still the almighty Queen of talk shows.
Hollywood heavyweights do a reading of “8”
Big names such as Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Jane Lynch did a reading of the gay-marriage play, 8. The reading was directed by Rob Reiner and penned by Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black. Black penned the play using the transcripts of the Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial which challenged the legality of Prop 8.
Latest Dancing with the Stars cast list is revealed
Esteemed “stars” include singer Gavin DeGraw, The View’s Sherri Shepard, and everyone’s favourite nerd
Steve Urkel Jaleel White. It’s depressing to think that every celebrity who’s been on the show believes it’s a great way to re-establish their relevancy when, in reality, it’s where careers come to die.
Rush Limbaugh calls Georgetown co-ed a slut after she advocates for insurance coverage for birth control
According to Rush Limbaugh, “she’s having so much sex that she can’t afford to pay for contraception.” Apparently, Limbaugh thinks you’re supposed to take the pill every time you have sex.
Hulk Hogan has a sex tape (gag)
Better yet, he has no idea who the brunette in the video is! According to TMZ, he apparently went on a four month alcohol-fueled sex binge and has no idea who he banged. The video’s being shopped around but really, no one wants to see a leathery and wrinkly Hulkmania in action.
Another star that’s spending too much time chattin’ bull on Twitter is living legend Cher.
Her transgendered son Chaz Bono was eliminated on Dancing With the Stars last night and Cher has some mean words to say on Twitter.
She tweeted: “Congratulations Chaz I’m SO PROUD OF U ! This was YOUR Quest & u Followed your Star but your mom “could cut a bitch!….
Thank u Carrie Ann 4 your Gentility u r beautiful inside & out! To the Gentleman? I didn’t know who u were b4 which I guess is a blessing!
Going Home is Fine but why insult him b4 he Goes! Maybe Rudeness & Flapping Arms take the place of TALENT ! As for the Older Gentleman ….every Show Needs A Grumpy Old Man!”
If I were Bruno (the grumpy old judge on the show who called Chaz a “little penguin”) I would apologize immediately. I’m trying to picture Cher “cutting a bitch” and it doesn’t look pretty!
Most divorced couples stay far, far away from each other. Courtney Cox and her ex, David Arquette are doing the complete opposite.
The couple recently separated after 11 years of marriage when rumours of David’s infidelity made headlines. The two have a daughter, Coco, who is now 7. To prove to Coco and everyone else they can still be model parents, they managed to stay friendly and respectful.
David is currently a contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and Courtney has been seen in the audience cheering him on. Cute! I can’t list that many broken-up couples that can still manage to be in the same room together, let alone go on to produce comedy shows.
The pair have sold a sitcom to NBC, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It’s called Ten Years and much like their own lives, it’s the telling of a modern couple going through marital problems. But the work doesn’t stop there!
They’re also in talks to sell another sitcom, Skinny Girl, to ABC. This show follows the life of a former fat girl who’s trying to maintain her weight while working at a greasy diner. It doesn’t sound as interesting or intelligent than Ten Years but if the two manage to sell both sitcoms to both networks, we can expect them to stay side by side for a long time. Maybe even rekindle lost love, later down the road. It’s all about staying together for the kids, right?
It must have been a simple miscommunication. Pauly D has been quoted as saying, ”I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.” But now he is saying he likes the show.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Pauly says, “I never said I was too famous for it,” said Pauly D. “I like the show. I think it’s great. But I just think I’d like to do it a little bit later. Right now I’m on tour with Britney, and I have a lot of other things going on, but it’s a great show, though.”
So you still may get to see Pauly bust a move.
We are sorry if we got your hopes up earlier, but Snooki and Queen Latifah will not be joining the next season of Dancing With the Stars.
Although there was a lot of speculation the two stars would join the cast, it turns out not to be true.
The new cast according to ABC is: Ricki Lake, 42, actress and talk show host; Ron Artest, 31, NBA star;Kristin Cavallari, 24, former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills, Chynna Phillips, 42, pop singer; David Arquette, 39, actor; Carson Kressley, 41, TV personality and style expert;Nancy Grace, 51, HLN host and legal commentator; J.R. Martinez, 28, Army vet and All My Children star; Hope Solo, U.S. soccer player; Rob Kardashian, 24, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star; Elisabetta Canalis, 32, Italian actress and George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend; and Chaz Bono, 42, author and star of Becoming Chaz, son of Cher and Sonny Bono.
ABC will be revealing the lineup today. Snooki and her manager have denied the report, saying Snooki is too busy.
Other rumored celebrities said to be joining the DWTS 13 lineup include fellow reality stars Rob Kardashian and Krisin Cavalleri, reports Examiner.com.
“I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips,” he confessed.
However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t support Snooki,
“I texted her congratulations about doing ‘Dancing,’ but she texted back ‘am I?’” Pauly tells The Huffington Post.
Be careful there Pauly – fame and fortune doesn’t last forever. If someone is offering you cash to appear on a show, we suggest you grab it.
For all you Dancing with the Stars fans Queen Latifah and Snooki have signed on for the next season, reports TMZ.
Rumors are also surfacing that Tiffani Thiessen will join.
We can’t wait for Snooki to fall flat on her ass during the competitions. She doesn’t look to be that coordinated. However she is amazing at keeping her balance when really drunk, so who knows…
US Weekly reports Snooki is in talks with ABC to appear in Season 13 of the show, and would be starting September 19. Here is what else is interesting. ABC is talking to a few other celebrities to join next season, including Mike Tyson.
Wouldn’t that be an amazing duo – Mike Tyson and Snooki? They would either love each other, or Tyson would end up knocking her out. That would be awesome television.
With many noticing her new ‘look,’ Bristol Palin is finally admitting that she had work done, E Online reports.
“I had corrective jaw surgery,” she tells ‘US Weekly,’ saying she went under the knife back in December 2010 shortly after her ’Dancing With The Stars’ exit.
“Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons…so my jaw and teeth could properly realign. I don’t obsess over my face,” she insists.
Palin says she’s happy with her new face. So are we.
“I am absolutely thrilled with the results,” she says. “I look older, more mature, and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”
If you look at the before and after pictures it’s so obvious she had surgery, so I’m glad she actually owned up to it. I don’t agree, however, that it was done for medical reasons. I mean, last time I checked, when doctors did jaw work they also didn’t remove chin fat and give you a prominent jaw line. But hey, I’m no doctor. She looks good though.
Bristol Palin, daughter to the infamous Sarah Palin, is set to star in a new reality series alongside her ‘Dancing With The Stars’ castmate Kyle Massey, reports Perez Hilton.
Palin and her son Tripp will be moving in with Massey and his brother Chris, from ‘That’s So Raven.’ The group will be filmed on the BIO show working for an unnamed charity.
“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to. Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her and son and her friends the Massey brothers,” says Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E and the BIO Channel David McKillop.
Okay. Well, at least they are doing it for charity, so it’s not completely useless. But I think the charitable think to do here, Bristol, is to stop appearing on my television set.
Despite the mediocre dance steps, less-than exemplary vocals, and cheesy end-poses following their performance, it was hard to not get excited as NKOTBSB (the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys collaboration name) poured their heart and souls into singing their new single, “Don’t Turn out the Lights,” during the results show of Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night.
Backstreet Boys also performed their song, “I Want it That Way,” back-to-back with the New Kids on the Block performance of the ever-loved “Step By Step.”
While the singing was strained and not all that exceptional, the bands stuck true to the typical boy-band performance, with the synchronized dancing and all, which made up for the lack of singing-talent that was expressed. It was definitely exciting to see these two bands perform together once again, albeit the fact that it might be their last attempt at some sort of come back (although the DDub himself, Donny Wahlberg, only has about 180,000 followers compared to the c.400,000 of Ryan Butler, who is famous for none other than being Justin Bieber’s best friend, let alone Bieber’s own over-9,000,000 followers; it seems boy bands are just not as valued as they used to be).
Along with their joint album which is to be released soon, NKOTBSB will also be hitting the road together on tour (which this performance gives a small preview of), kicking the festivities off at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL, on May 25, and going through until the last show on July 6 in Anaheim, CA.
Their album, which will be released on May 24, will be comprised of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys songs off their previous CDs, as well as three NKOTBSB singles; “Don’t Turn out the Lights,” “All in my Head”, and the “NKOTBSB Mash Up.”
Did you catch NKOTBSB’s performance on Dancing with the Stars? Watch the video below and let us know what you thought of the performance!
Despite all his …cough…display of anger…backstage and Good Morning America a couple days ago, Chris Brown’s new album, F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies) is doing really well! This just goes to show that good music will always be good music, no matter what.
Regardless of his GMA outburst, which ended in broken windows and Brown storming out shirtless after being questioned by Robin Roberts on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, ABC still wants the star to perform next Tuesday on Dancing with the Stars, reports Perez Hilton.
According to Perez, Roberts commented on Brown’s behaviour, saying:
“I wish him the absolute best. We extended the invitation to him [to come back], and sure hope he takes us up on it because I’d sure love to have another chat with him…Any time we have a guest, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter and the topics. And even right before the interview I let him know. I was shocked like everyone else, because we’ve had a wonderful relationship. I’ve been to his home, he’s very gracious, and we’ve had easy conversation…We’ve extended an invitation. We’d love to have him back. He’s seriously considering that.” Pretty reasonably handled on Robert’s part, in my opinion! We hope Chris “forgives all his enemies” and accepts, because that would be one interesting interview.
And now, Brown’s album (s released March 22) is already in the 250-275k range in terms of sales, falling just behind Adele’s 21 which sold 351k copies, according to Perez. Impressive! His album currently holds the #1 spot on iTunes’ Top Albums, along with ten out of the 17 singles of the deluxe album holding spots in the top 100 songs, the single Next 2 You featuring Justin Bieber leading the way at number four.
Not too shabby for someone who’s had some pretty bad press lately. Can’t wait to see what good fortune will follow Brown next!
Apparently people still watch this show! “Dancing with the Stars” is back yet again for a 12th season – this time around with a former Playboy model, a human Jenny Craig product placement, the original “Karate Kid”, and that blonde girl from the Jonas Brothers show that got cancelled after two terrible seasons. Yay!
Just six months after the 11th season ended, the line-up of celebrity stars for the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars” has been released. The list includes:
Chris Jericho – A professional wrestler, credited as the first undisputed champion in the WWF
Kristie Alley – An actress, who is currently filming her own reality TV show “Kristie Alley’s Big Life” for A&E.
Mike Catherwood – A radio host, a.k.a. “Psycho Mike”, from KROQ-FM and the co-host of “Loveline”.
Romeo – A rapper and actor, formerly known as “Lil’ Romeo”.
Sugar Ray Leonard – A retired professional boxer, who won world titles in five weight divisions in his time.
Ralph Macchio – An actor, most famously known for his role as Daniel LaRusso in the “Karate Kid” series.
Chelsea Kane – Formerly known as Chelsea Staub, this actress is best known for her role as “Stella” on the Disney show “JONAS”.
Petra Nemcova – A Czechoslovakian supermodel, who was injured in the 2004 tsunami in Thailand and lost her fiancé-at-the-time to the disaster.
Hines Ward – An NFL football player who is currently the wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steeler’s.
Kendra Wilkinson – A model and reality-star, most commonly known from the E! series “The Girls Next Door.”
Wendy Williams –An author and host of the talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show”.
Honestly, does this line-up have what it takes to make people watch this upcoming season? After all the drama caused by the ever-entertaining Bristol Palin, one can only hope! As long as Kristie Alley doesn’t turn it into another Jenny Craig commercial or reality show about her oh-so-hard life, people might actually watch the first episode for kicks. And hey, at least on this show she’ll have a few viewers!
The real question is, with 11th-season-champion Jennifer Grey’s big shoes to fill, which of these celebrities will have what it takes to bring the trophy home?
Are you going to watch this season? Which star are you most excited to see ballroom dance?
Just when you think you’ve seen the last of the Palins, at least until 2012, 20-year-old Bristol churns out 304 pages of pure, uncensored memoir!
Yes, that’s right. The queen of all teen moms has officially signed a deal with publishing house William Morrow & Co. to release the “Untitled Bristol Palin Memoir,” a riveting tale of televised dancing competitions, evil exes posing in Playgirl, and having a child named after an uncommonly specific verb.
The book is listed on Amazon and can be preordered to ensure you get your very own copy for the June 21st release.
Memoirs are written for one of four reasons: to quell nostalgia, to boost egos, to stuff pockets, or to celebrate an important person’s life. We wonder what Bristol’s motivation was… hmm…
If you’ve ever thought to yourself “Poor Heidi Montag is just rolling downhill. Thank God she never did Dancing With the Stars!” you may want to think again.
It turns out Heidi was offered a guest spot on the hit reality show, but she was forced to turn it down due to her contractual obligations with MTV’s The Hills and NBC’S I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.
Dontcha hate it when your starring roles on two separate reality shows make it impossible to star on another reality show?
Now that both of Heidi’s contracts are up, it would be a perfect time for her to slip on her dancing shoes…if she hadn’t have gotten those TEN surgeries two years ago, that is!
“[The offer] was before her surgeries and so I’m not sure if she wants to risk it now,” a source explained. “She already took an elbow from a dancer on the set of her song, Overdosin’, and she’s scared of getting hurt.”
The moral of the story: if you want to dance on a hit reality program, DON’T get G-cup breasts because they WILL get in the way and make you crazy paranoid!
Oh Heidi. You never cease to amuse us.
Bristol Palin and her son Tripp have finally made the move to Arizona after much public discussion. Palin purchased a home in Maricopa, AZ, for about $172,000, half of what the house was worth 3 years ago. Palin paid cash for the 4,000 square foot five bedroom home.
Bristol will have to watch her step in her new neighborhood for a little while at least – she lives barely a hour’s drive from the mass shooting that took place in Tuscon on Saturday, a shooting that some fault her mother, Sarah, of being an indirect instigator.
Though it’s been rumored that Bristol will attend the state’s university, she’s already received a job offer from local radio station Mix 96.9. If Palin accepts, she’ll cohost the morning show with DJ Mathew Blades.
“I think Bristol’s outlook on life is probably different than mine, and that contrast could be interesting to listen to,” Blades commented.
Wasn’t Bristol boring enough on DWTS? There are probably way more talented and qualified people available to host the show!
What do you think of Palin’s move to AZ?
