November 25th, 2013 9:56am EST
Kesha
Several stars walked the 41st Annual American Music Awards red carpet in their Sunday best last night.  Pop singer Ke$ha showed some leg in a black, one-shouldered gown with a thigh-high slit up the right leg.

She dyed her blonde hair pastel pink and turquoise. The singer performed "Timber" with Pitbull during the broadcast.

Taylor Swift took home four awards for "Artist of the Year," "Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist," "Favorite Country Female Artist" and "Favorite Country Album for 'Red'." The 5-foot-10-inch tall singer rocked a gold sequined mini skirt.

Christina Aguilera looked slim a...

Jenna Ushkowitz
In anticipation for the start of "Glee's" 4th season tonight, the cast hit the red carpet for the show's star studded premiere at Paramount Studios last night. Celebrity hairstylist Helen Jeffers reveals how she achieved Jenna Ushkowitz's sleek style for the celebration using White Sands Hair Care.

1. First, I sectioned the hair off and applied a generous amount of White Sands Liquid Texture Firm Hold Thermal Styling Spray to each section of damp hair. I use Liquid Texture when I am straightening or curling as it adds incredible control and shine. It also helps the hair strands to lay smoo...

'Glee' Recap: It's Mash-Up Week!

November 16th, 2011 9:50am EST
Glee 305
It seems like ‘Glee’ has just decided to pretend last week’s West Side Virgin Story never happened. Thank goodness! What a relief it is to jump right back into election season and age-inappropriate relationships! Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

The good news gets even better when Ms. Corcoran , who has nice scenes with just about every single character in this show, speaks to Mr. Schue about keeping their...

'Glee' Recap: Virgin Scorecard

November 9th, 2011 12:53pm EST
Glee Rachel and Blaine
Like Sandra Dee, this week’s ‘Glee’ was lousy with virginity. Expectations were high after promos showed Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Blaine all getting their sexy on… but as it happened, ‘The First Time’ was kind of disappointing.

Unfortunately, West Side Story just doesn’t lend itself to this theme the way Madonna does. The season one tribute to the Queen of Pop covered similar territory and featured “Like a Virgin,” the most perfect song for the occasion. More importantly, the subject of de-flowering came up naturally and organically. Conversely, this week’s sudden sexual awakening isn’t moti...

GLEE: Quinn (Dianna Agron, L) and Puck (Mark Salling, R)
After yielding its timeslot to Major League Baseball for the past few weeks, “Glee” returned last night with an hour of leprechauns, cougars, and congressional candidates. Picking up where the series left off, this reasonably focused episode advanced several plotlines and introduced some new talent, in the form of ‘Glee Project’ winner, Damian McGinty.

The second of four new cast members that will, at some point, be transplanted from the Oxygen Channel’s competitive reality show to the Fox flagship, McGinty was front and center in his inaugural appearance as foreign exchange student, Rory...

The Cast Of 'Glee' Talk About Becoming Movie Stars In 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie'

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
The last frontier for Glee to conquer is the movie theater. They’re already a hit show, a chart topping purveyor of albums and iTunes downloads and perform to sold out crowds on stage. Now they have a movie.

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie captures one of those live stage shows and uses Hollywood technology to make cinema audiences feel like they’re in the front row. The entire cast of Glee got together to discuss their concert movie, their advice to talented young hopefuls, the social impact of their show and what they know about the show’s third season.

If you watch Glee, you've been watching Harry Shum, Jr. for a while. His character Mike Chang has been somewhere in the background, offering facial expressions or simply filling a seat. During the second season his character began dating Jenna Ushkowitz' Tina, and last month it has been announced Harry's character will be joining the show as a regular!

Harry has been a professional dancer for years, wowing audiences at concerts for Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson. After being a cameo dancer in Stomp the Yard and You Got Served, he gained a role as Cable in Step Up...

'Glee' Cast To Be Replaced By New Actors Next Year

June 21st, 2011 11:24am EDT
Glee cast
The current cast of "Glee" including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be replaced in 2012.

The musical TV hit, set in a high school, has taken the world by storm since it first aired in 2009, and has made stars of castmembers including Michele, Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.

But to maintain the series' realism, creator Ryan Murphy has decided the current class should graduate in 2012 and leave the show for good.

In an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he says, "That is true. I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this ...

'Glee' Finale: Let's Hear It For 'New York'

May 25th, 2011 11:25am EDT
The glee club visits New York City for Regionals
We made it! ‘Glee’ is in NYC to compete at Nationals and conclude a chart-topping, show-stopping, star-studded, post-Super Bowl time-slot scoring second season.

True to form, our favorite fictional show choir is in a situation that is about as absurd as the Broadway-obsessed Rachel Berry thinking that CATS is still open for business. New Directions has come to Nationals without a song or a set list and now they need to write a couple of hits in as many overstuffed hotel rooms. Brittany, Artie, and Puck offer up the ditty, “My Cup,” and there are enough eyes rolling around the room for som...

'Glee' Recap: Love, Loss, And Pure Imagination

Glee Funeral
This week was a big one! ‘Glee’ is gearing up for Nationals in New York, but before they take Manhattan, Finn calls it quits with Quinn, Rachel and Jesse share a kiss, and all the plans to win get interrupted by a sad and surprising loss. It’s the penultimate episode of the season and as Mr. Schue puts it, the culmination of everything the glee club has worked towards for the past two years. They’ve got to be awesome and this week, they kind of were.

Like Kirsten Dunst hiring a jazz hands-obsessed choreographer in the movie, “Bring It On,” Mr. Schue has made the decision to recruit 4-time...

While most of the club is pretty psyched about the news, but our beloved Mercedes is hung up on the fact that she doesn’t have a date. She was really Jonesing for that Cinderella moment and damn it, new best friend to all, Rachel Berry, is going to give it to her. Sam is recruited and agrees that with a little financial aid, he’s up for the job of accompanying both divas to their big night.

Kurt asks Blaine to prom and with a bit of gentle open-minded prodding he agrees. The more important q...

This week is a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and all the plot points are built around a track list that includes “Dreams” , “Don’t Stop,” and “Go Your Own Way,” among others.

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!? Look no further than the train-wreck eras of Britney, Whitney, and Lindsay, or Saved By...

In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

Jenna Ushkowitz: 'We Are Celebrating The Year Anniversary Of The BP Oil Spill'

Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz will forgo gifts during her upcoming birthday celebrations as she is asking for charity donations instead of presents.

The actress is an enthusiastic supporter of Oceana, an organization which aims to help ocean conservation, especially in the aftermath of last year's Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Ushkowitz is set to turn 25 next week, and to mark her birthday she wants her friends, family and fans to donate $25 to Oceana.

GLEE: New Directions perform at Regionals in the Original Song
Gwyneth’s gone and ‘Glee’ has a brand new gimmick to trot out this week. The episode, aptly called ‘Original Song’ is designed to showcase just that – brand new never-before-heard tunes that are as irresistible as all the karaoke tracks that have come before.

The concept has been brewing for a while now. Rachel Berry will put her musical genius and emotional baggage on the line for the sake of the glee club and New Directions will perform a completely original ditty at Regionals. However, her current set list (My Headband and Only Child) leaves more than a little to be desired and Finn ta...

First, welcome back Guidance Counselor and Stamos Wife, Emma Pilsbury. Though she seldom felt compelled to step in and combat the bullying at McKinley, a Sue-icide note from the fallen cheer coach has reminded her of the office full of all-purpose pamphlets she has yet to hand out to students and teachers in need.

Don't Cry For 'Glee'... When It's This Good!

For sectionals this year, Will is determined to prove how self-aware ‘Glee’ can be. Critics concerned about how overexposed Lea Michele is and how underutilized Heather Morris is, Will has got your back. Folks, who would be happy listening to Lea Michele sing the phone book every week, Santana’s going to taunt you with “Yentl” references and torture Rachel with revelations on the true status of Finn’s virginity. (For those who missed it, Santana took it in the middle of a wonderfully entertaining tribute to Madonna.)

It’s a Glee wedding – Finn’s Mom and Kurt’s Dad. Sue and Herself. Quinn and Sam. Within the first few minutes all three “couples” are flirting with the idea of putting a ring on it.

Meanwhile, Kurt’s bully is continuing to terrorize him and there’s nothing Principal Sue can do…. Except change her nickname for Kurt from “Lady” to “Porcelain.” Rachel however, is not comfortable with that course of action and rallies the Glee girls to sic their football boyfriends on Karofsky. The only one absent from the unsuccessful beat down is Finn. NOT COOL.

'Glee' Recap: Rocking The Horror Show

Coming into “The Rocky Horror Glee Show,” my expectations were not particularly high. My familiarity with the source material began and ended with the iconic singing red lips and in general, I’m not a huge fan of “the Halloween episode.” I just don’t look forward to that week when shows decide to ignore every story arc they’ve set up just to put their characters into some stylized parody of a horror movie. Therefore, I was thrilled to see that this week’s installment of “Glee” actually felt more like an episode of “Glee” than an unintentionally rocky, well… horror show.
