Although a 25th anniversary-celebration had already been in the works prior to the earthquake in Haiti, the devastation in that country changed the scope of the plans.

It’s not yet known who will be involved in the new session, though artists including Usher, Natalie Cole, and John Legend have already been given invites.

The 2009 Academy Awards: Live Commentary

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Awards,

The Oscars

After a year away from live Oscars coverage, I’m thrilled to be back for the 2009 Academy Awards.

Even though Dark Knight‘s snub will probably keep a number of viewers away (how many can honestly say they’ve seen The Reader?), I’m eagerly anticipating several moments from this evening’s broadcast.

Will Heath Ledger’s family bring the house to tears? Is Mickey Rourke going to make the producers wince? Will the cameras pan to Brangelina after Jennifer Aniston’s presentation? Are Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron really (really?) going to do a song and dance number?

To find out if this will be the year of the Slumdog or the underdog, stay tuned here for the live results!

Laughs and Duets for Stephen Colbert’s Christmas

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Music, Specials, Cable, Editorial,


Last night, Comedy Central aired ’s Christmas special for the first time. Did you miss this medley of duets, special guests and conservative comedy? A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All airs again Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and probably many more times before December is through.

This celebration of spirit began with a song and a plea from the funny pundit himself, a new ditty he hopes will become a standard so that many holiday-time royalties will go to him. At one point, the song blatantly begs for money to feed Colbert’s children. Throughout the number, Colbert struts around in fur-covered boots and lots of red. It was, from beginning to end, totally hilarious.

Snoop DoggWhen did wrestling become so hip?

Okay - I admittedly am not a fan of the ‘sport’, so when I hear something related to the letters WWE, I usually flip the channel.  But when the topic starts invading shows like Project Runway, you kind of have to take notice.

While I don’t find it surprising that and Dancing with the Stars’ Floyd Mayweather have been linked to this year’s Wrestlemania event, others names seem a bit out of place.

First off, John Legend is scheduled to perform during the March 30 Wrestlemania XXIV spectacular in Orlando.  The R&B singer, yes R&B, will get the program started with his rendition of “America the Beautiful.”  Then there’s Raven-Symone.  The star will host a ‘wish-granting event’ during that same weekend.

Disney and wrestling?  When did I become so uncool?
