I talked with Jamie Jones from All 4 One this afternoon about their upcoming show as part of the 90's Dance Party 2.0 at the National Cherry Festival on the 4th of July. Plus we talked about what it has been like being together for nearly 25 years, and some crazy fans that they've had.
Will Ferrell was a guest on The Tonight Show last night and as always, Jimmy likes to play fun games. Watch below as Jimmy and Will play a game of "Think Fast" where they have to say the first thing that comes to their head when asked a question.
As a massive video game nerd, I always look forward to this week. We get to see what some of our favorite game developers and big studios have to offer in the coming months and years with announcements of new games! It kicked off this past weekend with EA doing their presentation on Saturday, and Microsoft and Bethesda both doing presentations yesterday.
I of course wanted to watch them, so with the roll of her eyes, my girlfriend allowed me to have some TV time to watch them on the big screen, haha.
Sony has their big presentation tonight, and Nintendo is tomorrow, and big things are expected as always. Then of course the show floor opens tomorrow where everyone can go in and check out all these new games and gear. It's always an exciting week, and I look forward to more big news to come.
It was one of the most hotly anticipated Carpool Karaoke episodes in quite some time, James Corden is doing his show live from London this week, and had Ed Sheeran on to do an episode of his most popular segment. Check it out.
If I were to tell you that a Deaf singer earned a golden buzzer on America's Got Talent from none other than Simon Cowell, you'd probably call me crazy, but it happened, and it was incredible. Mandy Harvey lost her hearing a decade ago, but has never given up. She wrote her own song, and performed it on America's Got Talent as she said "Trusting her pitch" to get the notes right. Watch and be amazed.
Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Judy Dench, Willem Defoe, Daisy Ridley, Penélope Cruz, Michelle Pfeiffer, and that's just naming HALF of them. This amazingly star-studded film will be the third adaptation of the 1934 Agatha Christie novel of the same name. Its due to release on November 10th.
