Glee Season 5 Premieres September 26; Tackles Cory Monteith's Death in Third Episode (Teaser)

Posted on August 17, 2013 | 12:18 PM

Phenomenal musical TV series Glee will return on its fifth season starting September 26. The first teaser for the upcoming season was released Friday, just over a month after the passing of Cory Monteith who plays Finn Hudson.

Glee Season 5 Premieres September 26; Tackles Cory Monteith's Death in Third Episode (Teaser)
According to reports, Glee will deal with Finn Hudson's death in the new season's third episode (scheduled October 10 before the show's hiatus for the baseball postseason) and will also pay tribute to the actor who played Finn, Cory Monteith, who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol last month.

Glee creator Ryan Murphy said in a recent interview that it was very difficult to work straight for the 5th season after Cory's tragic death, especially that they will have to tape for the first two episodes—tribute to legendary band The Beatles—which should be fun and optimistic as planned.

So how will the show tackle Finn Hudson's death?

He told Deadline: "There were a lot of things that we had to decide—how are we going to deal with his death? At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose—that was something we had considered."

"But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, 'This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.'" 

"We loved Cory and we loved Finn and it feels like a huge loss and a huge heartache not to have either of them around. We’re trying to craft an episode that’s not just about us grieving but about a lot of the young fans grieving," Murphy added.

"Once again with feeling, drama, passion... Are you ready to go once again," said the first teaser of Glee season 5 (watch below).

Charice came out as gay on national TV just recently and she appreciated how her fans stayed loyal to her. 

Charice is currently in Hollywood to honor some commitments. While in Los Angeles, she told her US management team that she would like to audition for Hollywood movies and TV shows.

"Yun 'yung unang-unang sinabi ko sa kanila na gusto kong gawin. Kasi parang nahihilig din ako sa acting. But this time I want to play weird na roles. Seryoso, lagi nila akong pinagtatawanan na gusto kong maging serial killer, ganyan," she explained.

Charice will return to the Philippines after finishing her engagements in the US to start promoting her "Chapter 10" album. The said album talks about the new chapter in her life. 

One of the songs in the album, Unexpected Love, which Charice co-wrote with The Voice US semi-finalist Cheesa Laureta, is dedicated to her girlfriend Alyssa Quijano.

The 26-year-old artist, who plays Santana Lopez in the hit Fox musical TV series Glee, thanked her supporters on Twitter after the hashtag #nayapower trended within hours of the release of the single on radio. "This was a good day for all of us and I can't thank you enough for your support," she tweeted.

"Sorry is an upbeat killer of an R&B song that makes you think about early 2000s jams from huge stars like Janet Jackson and Mary J. Blige. And there’s something about Naya singing that she’s not sorry about stealing another girl’s man that is so fun and cool," described Hollywood Life.com.

Naya Rivera and boyfriend Big Sean started dating in April. Listen to their first collaboration, Sorry (lyrics below).

Naya Rivera ft Big Sean Sorry lyrics

[Hook: Naya Rivera]
Sorry, I’m not sorry
Cause I’ve been rolling round, shut it down, lady
Bagged him up, now he’s my baby
Sorry, I’m not sorry
Yeah, you had your fun now it’s done, crazy
Lookin’ at his number one lady
S-O-R-R-Y, S-O-R-R-Y
Yeah you had your fun, now it’s done, crazy
Lookin’ at his number one lady

[Verse 1: Naya Rivera]
I don’t really know much about you
But it’s clear you know my name
So I guess all I can tell you
Is that I don’t have much to say
If you used to be the one
Well I don’t know s**t about it
I don’t know s**t about it
But I know you are mad about it
He loves the way I put it down
Starstruck on what he found
You wish that it played out different
Yeah I know it sucks, girl
I’m so…


[Verse 2: Naya Rivera]
Now you showing up at his house
Looking like a hot mess, honey
I think it’s time for you to cut it out
Tryna save you from looking funny
I guess until you find somebody
You’re a hashtag and pity party
Party, party, party, party
All I gotta say is, I’m so…


[Verse 3: Big Sean]
You’re now rolling with the all-time high, never satisfied
Forever getting paid off what money can’t buy
Oh, my girl so fine that you scared to tell her “hi”
She a all-around ten like a high five
And we ain’t fall in love, we skydive
I always get off when she’s on, she’s there
I’m gone, I call her “fine”, she call me “Sean”
And I love ‘em quarter G, quarter freak
Quarter Puerto Ric, quarter sweet
Honolu-lulu out on the beach
South of France me and my Mona Lis’
Bon appétit, mon ami


[Outro: Naya Rivera]
Amber, Brittany, Tiffany
Sorry he belongs to me
Heather, Ashley, Stephanie
Sorry it just wasn’t meant to be

Jennifer Hudson Signs as American Idol Judge: Report

Posted on May 25, 2013 | 10:57 AM

American Idol alumna Jennifer Hudson has reportedly signed a contract to be a judge in the upcoming 13th season of American Idol. 

Jennifer Hudson to judge American Idol Season 13

According to E! News, the 31-year-old Hudson has already finalized a deal to sit as one the judges in American Idol Season 13 which is set to start auditions in July. Jennifer Hudson is one of the most successful Idol alumni. Although only finished seventh in the show's 3rd season way back in 2004, Jennifer went on to win awards at the Grammy and Oscars both as a singer and as an actress.

Reports also said that American Idol plans to have an all-alumni three-person judging panel in season 13, a revamp which aims to highlight its capability to produce top-selling recording artists. The producers are considering seating its first ever winner Kelly Clarkson and another alum which may either be Season 8 runner up Adam Lambert or Season 2 runner up Clay Aiken.

Veteran judge Randy Jackson (who has been a judge since the very first season) already announced during the season 12 finale that he will be leaving the show. His season 12 co-judges, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Nicki Minaj are also reportedly not coming back for season 13.

According to E! News, The "superstar-alum" theme is aimed at reclaiming some of Idol's lost viewership. American Idol has suffered a serious competition from The Voice in the past two years and recent data showed that the Fox reality singing competition has hit its lowest viewership in the last season which crowned Candice Glover as winner in a historic all-girl Top 5.

Do you think American Idol will bring back some of its lost glory with an all alumni judging panel?

American Idol 2013 Top 8 Results Show: Devin Velez Eliminated

Posted on March 29, 2013 | 9:14 AM

Devin Velez gets the boot on  the Top 8 Elimination (Results Night) of American Idol Season 12, March 28 (March 29 in Manila). Devin, who sang his rendition of Tracks of My Tears on last night's performance show got the lowest number of votes and apparently, was not saved by the judges.

Devin Velez (second from left) is eliminated in American Idol 12 Top 8 results show, March 28

Devin, who has always been part of the bottom group was joined by Burnell Taylor and Lazaro Arbos in Ryan's stools tonight.

Before Devin was escorted out of the Idol stage, we were treated with the performances of returning American Idol alums Katherine McPhee (who sing with One Republic) and Colton Dixon. Idol judge Keith Urban also brought the house down.

Last night, the American Idol 2013 Top 8 gave us another spectacular, singing the Motown classics. With this theme being done almost every season, we of course would always expect Smokey Robinson being the guest mentor. 

Of last night's performances, it was Amber Holcomb, Candice Glover and Angie Miller's I'm Gonna Make You Love which stood out and then there's Amber's Lately performance which earned her a standing ovation from the judges. The boys' trio of Devin Velez, Burnell Taylor and Lazaro Arbos was just helpless after judge Nicki Minaj lash out on them for their very poor rendition of I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch).

Next week, the safe Idol contestants Kree Harrison, Candice Glover, Janelle Arthur, Angie Miller, Amber Holcomb along with Burnell Taylor and Lazaro Arbos will be back on the Idol stage to sing for your votes. Who will be eliminated next week? As this early, a girl to girl finale is almost 100% sure.

The 22-year-old actress received her very first Oscars trophy on Sunday, February 24 (Monday morning in Manila) after being nominated twice. Click here for the complete list of OSCARS 2013 winners.

Jennifer Lawrence, fondly called JLaw, is wearing a huge, white couture by Dior and her dress might be too long (or the stairs must be just slippery) for her to trip and fall. The star of The Hunger Games however managed to get up and give her acceptance speech with pride afterwards.

"You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing. But thank you," Jennifer told the Oscar crowd who just gave her a standing ovation.
