Jimmy Kimmel is saying goodbye to his midnight time slot as his live show is moving to the 11:35 PM time slot tonight. As a farewell, ABC edited a highlight reel packed with the shows most memorable moments.
Funny moments included on the reel include a “nice off” with Ellen Degeneres, zip lining with Tom Cruise, fist bumping a virtual Obama, smooching with Charlie Sheen, and being told to mind his own business by comedy legend Mel Brooks. Justin Beiber fangirls might also want to watch (or not), as Kimmel shaves off his picture perfect hair.
This change in time slot will put this talk show host in competition with The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Show with David Letterman. Kimmel told ET’s Rocsi Diaz that he’s not nervous, and that the competition doesn’t put any added pressure on him.

The Friskies annual award show for Internet cat videos is streaming live from Los Angeles RIGHT NOW, brought to you by Friskies and The Pet Collective. The show is being hosted by the always “extra” Buck Hollywood’s Michael Buckley. The show honours all those brave men and women who have tackled directing their cats, despite the old adage “Never work with children or animals.”
We’re big cat lovers here at ANDPOP so anything that recognizes all those established felines of the Internet world is fine with us. The finalist also gets $15,000, which is pretty major.

Apart from seeing Britney Spears’
awesome expressions and hearing Emblem3′s heavenly voices echo over the TV there’s a whole NOTHER reason to watch The X-Factor this week called One Direction. The guys are performing “Live While We’re Young” and “Little Things” at the live results show this Thursday from their second album Take Me Home.
It makes sense considering the guys got their start on The X-Factor UK with mentor Simon Cowell. Their performance of the ridiculously sweet ballad “Little Things” (written by Ed Sheeran) will be the world-premiere live TV performance of the song. We heard Niall might be playing the guitar on stage!!
In honour of their performance, the top 12 contestants produced their very own One Direction music video for “Life While We’re Young.” Will you be watching?

It didn’t take long for Psy’s viral hit “Gangnam Style” to be hailed as the new “Macarena.” Practically everyone can identify his horse-riding dance move and at least chant along to the chorus — unless you’re South Korean and then (duh) you probably know the verses too.
While the music video for both the male and female versions of “Gangnam Style” have an epic LMFAO flare, Psy’s horse-riding dancers also trot along with him for his shows. He recently performed on the South Korean music television program Show! Music Core and pretty much everyone in the audience went insane.

I think I’m liking this bromance.
With Academy-award nominated actor Gary Oldman directing Jack White’s American Express UNSTAGED performance, that itself sounds epic and legendary enough.
But after watching the two get into a little play fight in this video, I think I’m sold on their bromance. White even accidentally makes Gary bleed :O!!! Luckily enough, he’s is forgiving.
I wish they would collaborate some more already! Perhaps they can do a song together?
We all know Jack can sing, but so can Gary!
Watch them play fight:
Ringing from the after-effect of girls’ screams, I mean.
little band called One Direction stopped by Kiss FM in Chicago and performed their hit “What Makes You Beautiful,” causing tweens around the world to combust from overload boy band-ness (it’s a real thing, I promise).
Anyway, the five guys answered a couple questions, including: Who has the best American accent? However, it’s hard to hear the answer as a couple girls continually shouted “NIALL!”
One only needs to read the YouTube comments to see the general reaction: “I’m like dying watching this, I wish I could get so close to them.” My fave is the girl who seems to keep track of the boys’ sock choices: “louis’ wearing socks… chicago has changed you!”
Daniel Radcliffe, who you may have heard of from the Harry Potter franchise, will be live on andPOP Thursday January 26 at 1:40pm EST. The interview will take place from a secret location, but Daniel will be talking about his new movie, The Woman in Black, and taking fan questions via phone , Tweets, and Facebook messages live.
Here’s a sneak peek at Daniel’s new film which opens February 3.
“There’s definitely musical elements that we’ve talked about,” frontman Mark Foster told MTV News. “You know, really leaning on the percussive nature of what our live show has turned into this year, and bringing that more out into the second record — just kind of experimenting, doing some different, weird studio tricks; just having fun with it. But you never really know until you get under the hood, so we’ll see what happens when we start.”
We figured the best way to kick off our first LIVE edition of Small Talk was to get one of our favorite bands and a bottle of expensive champagne. NeverShoutNever stopped by the andPOP studio to get a buzz on and talk about Time Travel (2011). You can see more live interviews at andPOP.tv (we’re also giving away a signed copy of the album tweet @andPOP to win)
We are super excited for our live interview with Never Shout Never. The guys will be coming down to andPOP’s studio where @jordans_life will be asking them a ton of questions! You can ask Never Shout Never some questions too by either tweeting @andPOP or posting on our Facebook page.
The interview goes live at 4pm EST this Thursday (October 27) on www.andpop.com. See you there!

Local charities in Barrie have been banned from using the upcoming Live 8 concert to collect donations, reports Canadian Press.
Live 8 organizers have reportedly said that letting relief organizations participate in the event would “dilute the focus” of the concert, which is bringing attention to the plight of Africa
“It’s about raising awareness for global poverty,” said Live 8 spokesperson Katherine Holmes. “Bob Geldof said it best: ‘It’s about opening your minds, not your wallets’.”
Geldof is the man responsible for the series of free concerts to be held July 2, which are aimed at pressuring world leaders to provide debt relief for African nations.
The Canadian Live 8 is to be held in Barrie’s Park Place.
Local charities say they are disappointed by the decision.
“It’s a free concert and we had hoped that we could get permission to run a food drive,” said Paula King, the head of the Elizabeth Fry Society. “We figured this would be the ideal time and spot to raise awareness about poverty in Barrie.”
King’s organization, which gives food to the needy and shelter to homeless women, was the one that originally proposed a food drive several weeks ago.
“We had everything in place,” said King. “We had volunteers, we had trucks, we had boxes. All we needed was permission to go.”
Live 8 organizers say they were approached by several charities, all of which were rebuffed.
According to a study by the Ontario government, the number of people using homeless shelters in Barrie rose by 1,235 per cent between 1994 and 1998, the largest increase of any city in the province.
