September 19th, 2013 10:47am EDT
America's Got Talent
America has spoken, voting 38-year-old Japanese dancer Kenichi Ebina the winner of the eighth season of America's Got Talent Wednesday night.

The six finalists were whittled down to just two over the course of the two-hour finale, with angelic-voiced singer Cami Bradley, 25, the first to exit the show. She was followed by 16-year-old aspiring magician Collins Key, whose sleight-of-hand card tricks were some of the best ever; and Opera trio Forte, who often left nary a dry eye in the Radio City Music Hall audience during their final performances, finished fourth.

Then it was down to the fi...

Fashion Fails: Emma Watson, Chrissy Teigen, Rita Ora, More

Emma Watson
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Emma Watson has always been daring when it comes to fashion, but she's gone too far with this blouse dicky. I assume that's what it is, but it could also be one of those embarrassing harnesses you put on your kid to keep him on a leash.

I had to check to make sure Poppy Delevigne was not pregnant after seeing this outfit (I try not to make fun of maternity wear). By all accounts she's not expecting, which makes this shapeless a...

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

This is just about what we've come to expect from Snooki at this point: ugly stonewashed jeans tucked into garish high-top sneakers (with high heels?), a tasseled top, giant hoop earrings, and an oversized name-brand bag. Lorenzo looks hip, though.

Nick Cannon is trying to break up the monotony of black suits, but even in spring this collection of colors would be too much. It's the tie and shoes that kill this number and turn i...

I say, ‘I‘m going to put you through but you’ve got to keep stepping it up. Do you have children?’ He had t...
