‘Hannah Montana’ Tour Outselling The Police, Springsteen

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Kids, Cable,

Hannah MontanaIt’s not uncommon for a movie to outperform its competition—so should we be surprised that the hottest concert tour this year is being headlined by a Disney Channel star?

The (a.k.a. ) tour is so successful, scalpers are already selling her concert tickets at five times the face value.  Seats for all 54 stops have already sold out—and in several cases, in near record fashion.  (It took only four minutes in the Atlanta-area and eight minutes in Memphis.)  According the Associated Press, her tour is outselling The Police, Bruce Springsteen and Justin Timberlake.

Okay, the Spice Girls did just sell out their London concert in only 38 seconds—but let’s remember:  Hannah/Miley’s only 14.

Dancing With the Stars Kicks Off Tonight

Cheryl Burke Don’t forget—the fourth season of Dancing With the Stars begins tonight. Place your bets… who’s going to go the distance, and will dancer Cheryl Burke add a third trophy to her case? Burke won the last two competitions with partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith, but doesn’t feel the pressure to win this time. Burke told People magazine, “It’s about who I’m dancing with and making my partner the best dancer he can possibly be.” Or maybe it’s because the trophy is a hunk of junk. She also told the magazine, “Both [trophies] are falling to pieces, by the way. The mirrors are slowly falling off.” Check out the competition tonight, when she and partner Ian Ziering take to the dance floor. Filling out the cast are Heather Mills, Billy Ray Cyrus, Joey Fatone, Apolo Anton Ohno, Laila Ali, Clyde Drexler, John Ratzenberger, Shandi Finnessey, Leeza Gibbons and Paulina Porizkova.

John Ratzenberger to Fill in on ‘Dancing’

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Prime Time, Reality, ABC, Rumors,

John RatzenbergerVincent Pastore bailed on Dancing With the Stars after he realized that it would require physical activity. Luckily, Dancing was able to fill the void left by Pastore by recruiting John Ratzenberger, famous for his role of Cliff Claven on Cheers, as well as a multitude of Pixar film voice work. Pastore left after just one week of rehearsals when he discovered that it was a bit more than what he signed on for. Ratzenberger, 59, was asked to appear on the dance competition before, but had to turn it down due to a scheduling conflict. It’s good that he was free this go-around, and able to slip in quickly at the last minute. Tune in on March 19 to see how Ratzenberger and fellow Dancing contestants Joey Fatone, Billy Ray Cyrus, Heather Mills, and others make out in the big dance-off.
