SING YOUR FACE OFF: John Barrowman Previews His New ABC Singing Show With a Twist


Just when television audiences thought they had seen it all, ABC came up with a new kind of singing competition series — one where the contestants are celebrities who volunteered to be transformed to look just like one of their favorite icons. Anyone can give it their best shot at singing like someone they admire, but not everyone can pull off the feat of looking like their idols at the same time. So in an era where what you look like on stage is just as important as how you sound, this may be the ultimate challenge for performers looking to up their game.

In an exclusive interview, star John Barrowman (ARROW, DOCTOR WHO) talked about the fun of working on such an unusual entertainment show and who he would love to be transformed into if ever given the chance. [Read more...]

REVENGE: Get Thee To A Wedding!

Two years and nearly three seasons later, the long awaited wedding of Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) and Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman) has finally come. From all the spoiler-filled photos we can see that the bride and groom make it to the wedding cake part of the celebration, and from the fateful opening to the third season, we all watched with horror as Emily was shot and fell overboard from her honeymoon yacht.

So for faithful fans, they have watched with wonder as Emily plotted out every final detail to her big day – not just her wedding day, but the day her ultimate revenge is unleashed on the Graysons. She is just itching to put that final nail in the Grayson coffin and bury Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) and Conrad (Henry Czerny) once and for all for their willingness to sacrifice her father to save their own skins all those years before. Fortunately, Emily’s revengenda has allowed her to pick up a few friends and allies along the way; there’s Nolan (Gabriel Mann), Aiden (Barry Sloane) and now Jack (Nick Wechsler) all working to ensure that her wedding day trap goes off without a hitch.

Last week’s shocker revealed that Lydia (Amber Valletta) had also survived the plane bombing that was supposed to have claimed her and Victoria’s lives in the Season 1 finale. Unfortunately, with Lydia back, so are her nasty suspicions that Emily Thorne is not who she is claiming to be — if only she could find that photo that exposes Emily. [Read more...]

SCANDAL: Katie Lowes and Guillermo Diaz Talk the Huck/Quinn Relationship in the Torture Aftermath

Right smack in the middle of its third season, ABC’s political drama SCANDAL took a deeper look into the murky spy world that Olivia Pope’s father runs. B13 is not just creating, trapping, blackmailing and coercing people into doing its dirty work, it also keeps them locked up for decades if it suits their purposes. Watching Olivia’s mother Maya working with OPA to find the perfect escape out of the country was trepidatious and stomach-churching. But for long-time fans, the real story was what was going on with Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes).

With Huck discovering that Quinn was working with B13, he was not about to go easy on her to find out what she knew and what she was doing that could hurt those he loves. Not for one second did we ever believe that Huck could truly hurt Quinn, but within just a few minutes of the episode opening, we knew that presumption was wrong. Two teeth later, blood on the floor and Quinn a sobbing, terrified mess, our worlds were shattered. In the SCANDAL-world, this simply should not be happening. Even Charlie (George Newbern) was flabbergasted to find Quinn tied up, naked, and bleeding all from Huck’s hands. That episode was a turning point. We would never look at Huckleberry Quinn the same again. They were no longer mentor-mentee, BFF’s or even co-workers. A line had been crossed and trust and hearts everywhere was shattered.
