A source told the paper that the 54 year old singer’s revelation “sent the audience absolutely wild and forced producers to stop filming”.

The British edition of ‘The Voice’ has revealed its line-up of judges for the upcoming fifth season, with one surprise change in store. As has been widely tipped, Paloma Faith will be taking up the vacant seat left by Rita Ora, who defected to ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ earlier this year.

But, despite recently saying how much he was looking forward to coming back for another season, the legendary Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones has been axed from the BBC show to be replaced with Culture Club singer Boy George.

Will.i.am Celebrates 10th UK Number One With 'It's My Birthday'


Will.i.am

Will.i.am's actual birthday may not be until March but the rapper should be partying regardless after having earned his tenth UK number one single with 'It's My Birthday.' A cover of A.R Rahman's 'Urvashi,' the catchy party-starter has debuted at the top of the British charts, according to the Official Charts Company.

The song features 17 year-old singer Cody Wise, who is signed to Interscope records via Will.i.am's imprint. Both performers feature in the funny, vine-inspired music video which depicts hedonism and hilarity of a birthday celebration.

At the mid-week predictions last week, the duo were well on-track to claim the top spot, having sold over 42,000 copies, with just over 1% of that figure being accounted for by audio streams.

So, What's The Deal With Cheryl Cole And Will.I.Am?


Cheryl Cole Will.i.am

There was a time when “Promise This” singer Cheryl Cole and Black Eyed Peas rapper/The Voice UK judge Will.i.am were practically joined at the hip. Her first solo venture away from band Girls Aloud was as a featured vocalist on will.i.am’s 2008 single “Heartbreaker,” just the first of many projects the two would work on together, including her 2010 album “Messy Little Raindrops.”

When Cheryl decided to go a little more low key following the whole X Factor US sacking debacle, nobody really knew a huge amount about what was going on with her and whether the pair were still close or not. Well, it turns out that their friendship is as strong as ever, although Cheryl has revealed the reason why the two are not working together professionally any more (at least for the time being).

Rio 2 Review


Good

After the snappy, clever 2011 original, this sequel feels rather lazy by comparison: it's still visually colourful and sometimes witty, but the overcrowded story is all over the place, mixing wacky slapstick and corny satire with a political message. And none of this is edgy enough to make it memorable, except perhaps the addition of one new character, a deranged poisonous frog with delusions of romance, voiced by the riotously operatic Kristin Chenoweth.

At the centre again are the rare blue macaws Blu and Jewel (Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway), who now have three feisty kids at their bird sanctuary in Rio de Janeiro. Then their human keepers Tulio and Linda (Rodrigo Santoro and Leslie Mann) spot another blue macaw deep in the Amazon, so Blu and Jewel fly off to investigate with their children and buddies (including Will.i.am and Jamie Foxx). Sure enough, this turns out to be Jewel's long-lost family, overseen by her father (Andy Garcia) and guarded by her heartthrob ex Roberto (Bruno Mars). But there's an evil logger threatening the rainforest, and Blu's old nemesis Nigel the cockatoo (Jemaine Clement) is out for revenge.

After the oddly flat prologue in Rio, the film kicks up a gear when it arrives in the jungle, where the imagery becomes far more dense and colourful, leading to some wonderfully outrageous musical numbers and raucous action sequences. The level of detail is impressive, as is the range of creatures thrown into the story. But the script never quite rises to this level of invention, once again simplistically putting the city-bird Blu in an alien natural environment, with added in-laws and ex-boyfriends. Much more fun is Nigel's interaction with his poison-frog sidekick, even if his subplot never builds any steam.

Rio 2 - Alternative Trailer


Blu and Jewel believe that they are two of a kind as the only full grown blue macaws in existence as they make their home in a cosy Brazilian bird sanctuary with their fast-growing offspring. With Jewel developing itchy feet (or should that be talons?) and the 'babies' desperate to learn more about the world and their kind, the arrival of news of another flock of their kind deep in the Amazon rainforest sends Jewel reeling with excitement at the thought of vacating to the wild. Blu is less fond of the idea, now being comfortably accustomed to their artificial city lifestyle, but goes along on the adventure for the sake of Jewel. As they arrive in the jungle with their friends, they meet Jewel's formidable father and some old friends - and if that's not enough for Blu to worry about, Nigel the evil Sulphur-crested Cockatoo has also taken to the wild with revenge on his mind. But Nigel might not be the only thing to fear in the unpredictable Amazon wilderness.
