If you haven’t already seen this, be warned that this is the BEST thing you will see all day. In a special segment on The Tonight Show, Adele, Jimmy Fallon, and The Roots got together to sing “Hello,” and it’s nothing like you’ve ever seen. Complete with a whole host of classroom instruments, this video took the show’s amusing musical bits to a whole new level! One day after playing Box of Lies with Jimmy, the singer came back to effortlessly sing her hit song with the band. Xylophones, banana-shaped shakers and tiny hand-clapping tools give the song an unforgettable makeover. Adele even gets in on the fun with a green toy cellphone! Watch their performance above — we promise it might just be your favorite version of the song!
Oh, Jimmy Kimmel, you’re so clever. In an effort to emphasize how the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens is not just for a male audience, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host introduced a new cut of the Force Awakens trailer that definitely takes a more romantic spin. The parody basically shows how Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) find each other in the most unexpected way. “No matter what stood in their way… or what older gentleman distracted her [cut to Harrison Ford as Han Solo]… sometimes the greatest Force of all is: Love.” Too funny, and I’d totally go for that angle. Watch above!
This will make your day!
Not only is Adele a record-breaking artist, but she’s a comedian too. Who knew she was THIS funny? It might have to do with the fact that she was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Fallon just brings that out of every celebrity. She was on the show to promote her new album, 25, but also got to talking about how much she misses Rihanna! We literally couldn’t agree more. In a perfect world, Adele and Rihanna are playing on the radio all day.
The wait is over!
I wish I could hashtag the hell out of this right now, but first I’m just going tease it a little in case you haven’t seen the episode. Unlike some shows (thanks, Game of Thrones), The Walking Dead did not keep us in suspension for long regarding sweet Glenn (Steven Yeun) and his fate. Probably one of the most talked about TV “deaths” in history, the fans were naturally verklempt (like me) when it looked like Glenn was torn apart by zombies a few weeks ago. Everyone and their mother has been speculating on how Glenn could have survived; there were clues and set pics and comic book storylines, and if he didn’t make it, what that would do our collective psyche. Well… the episode “Heads Up” explained it all and as if I have to say it, SPOILERS AHEAD, so stop reading if you don’t want to know yet. More »
Leave it creator Shonda Rhimes to keep things interesting on TV. The winter finale of her hit ABC show, Scandal, tackled women’s health issues, particularly the fate of Planned Parenthood, which is a continuing hot-bed topic in today’s political climate. Being that the series takes place in Washington D.C., it makes sense Rhimes and company would go there. And what better forum than a popular series with strong female characters and finally the freedom to discuss what was once taboo subjects on primetime TV. It also makes sense that the Internet would explode over it. [Note: Spoilers ahead!]
Shining A Light: A Concert For Progress On Race In America is the name of A&E’s concert special, which airs on November 20th, in hopes to spark dialogues to create change. Lots of awesome musicians will be in attendance, including Pharrell, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Bruce Springsteen, the amazing Jill Scott, and more. We got to see a special peek of the concert’s taping, where Nicki Minaj recited the powerful poem by Maya Angelou, entitled “Still I Rise.” I’m not gonna lie, I was having trouble keeping the tears at bay while watching this.

It’s time for Jennifer Lawrence to put aside the heavy dramas and do a balls-out comedy. Period. Preferably one with her new BFF Amy Schumer, but it doesn’t matter; this girl is funny. She proved it again last night on The Tonight Show when she joined host Jimmy Fallon in a skit, wearing a bad wig, weird futuristic duds and asked people to “Come Dance With Us!” In an infomercial “promoting a series of instructional dance videos,” Des (Fallon) and Dash (Jen Law) teach people dances like “Check the Door,” “Row the Boat, Check the Pulse,” “Slurp the Soup,” “Kick Waterfall,” “That Doesn’t Sound Anything Like Him,” and “Brow Brow Chicken Cow.” My personal favorite is “Bury the Nut.” Check out the hilarity above!
Sometimes you have to face facts. If it’s not working, then it’s time to cut it loose. That’s what creator Kurt Sutter has had to do with his fledgling new FX series The Bastard Executioner after just one season – but he did it his way. Bucking the usual press announcement about a show’s cancellation, Sutter instead placed an ad in various Hollywood trade publications and publicly acknowledged audiences were just not that into his show about a warrior trying to find peace in 14th Century Wales.
It’s as if Saturday Night Live read the world’s collective diary and said, “Yes world, we will give you the gift of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler together again on the SNL stage.” Or, more likely, they’ll be there promoting their new comedy, Sisters. But at this point, we’ll take Tina and Amy anyway we can get them! So mark your calendars for December 19th, because that’s when the duo will be hitting that stage with musical guest Bruce Springsteen. So basically, it’s going to be the best episode ever! More »
This video will definitely make your day a little brighter, if not sillier. Last night on The Late Show, hosted by the lovely Stephen Colbert, there was a live performance by The Amazing Acro-Cats. The act included six ladies decked out in purple cat ears, an elaborate cat obstacle course, and of course, about six catrobats…acrocats? Gosh, there’s just so many ways to say it. Well, I’m not sure the act really went as planned. At first, the cats were quite reluctant to get out of their carriers. It’s as if one cat said to the other, “Hey man, we’re on TV right now.” And the other was like, “So? I don’t watch The Late Show.” When the cats finally did emerge they weren’t too keen on doing their tricks. One simply ignored it’s trainer and just started scratching the floor. At one point Stephen actually ran across the stage distracting the audience, it was pretty great. The good news is, they’re cats, so they’re fun to watch regardless. Actually, the fact that this didn’t go super smoothly probably made it funnier and more entertaining in the long run! Enjoy!
