The quality of the animation in this musical comedy may not be up to Pixar standards, but the story and characters are thoroughly endearing. And the music is fabulous. As it follows a group of likeable animals through a variety of plots and adventures, there's plenty for everyone in the audience to connect with. So even if the climactic action mayhem gets a bit ridiculous, the movie keeps us laughing. And it also makes us want to get up on that stage and belt out a few numbers.
It's set in a city populated by animals. Buster (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) is a koala who has been obsessed with musical theatre since he saw the diva Nana (Jennifer Hudson then Jennifer Saunders) perform when he was a child. So he grew up and bought the theatre. Now with audiences waning, he stages a musical competition to save the theatre. In the auditions, he selects his finalists: anarchist porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), jazzy mafioso mouse Mike (Seth MacFarlane) and silky voiced gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton). He also teams up two pigs as a double-act: frazzled housewife Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) and German dancer Gunter (Nick Kroll). There's also golden-voiced elephant Meena (Tori Kelly), who's too shy to face the audience so takes a role backstage. Of course, nothing goes as planned.
The key conflict comes from Buster's frantic efforts to avoid bankruptcy, plus rather half-hearted action subplots involving a gang of bears and Johnny's criminally minded relatives. These generate quite a bit of tension that erupts into rather outrageously destructive slapstick along the way. More interesting are the personal journeys of the various contestants, especially as Ash, Meena and Johnny all discover their voices and Rosita finds inventive ways to balance her long-lost career with her role as a mother to 25 rambunctious piglets. Yes, the film is rather crowded with characters and storylines, and the animation looks plasticky, but everything comes together cleverly,

Having been dropped for 2016's final series on the BBC, 'The Voice UK' is restoring the Welsh singing legend to the coaching panel when it moves to ITV.
Sir Tom Jones is set to return to the coaching panel of ‘The Voice UK’ for its first series on ITV, having been unceremoniously dumped by the BBC just over a year ago.
The 76 year old Welsh crooning legend will be one of the four coaches in the upcoming first series of the talent show at its new home on ITV, to which it’s moved after five seasons on the BBC where it enjoyed mixed fortunes.
“I’m looking forward to returning to my big red chair on ‘The Voice UK’,” Jones said in a statement. “I had some great times on the show and I can’t wait again to discover and help some brand new talent. And of course be back with my pal Will.i.am.”

Who posed competition for Bey on the red carpet?
It was the fashion Oscars last night (June 6th 2016) at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York; the CFDA Fashion Awards presented a host of the most glamorous women in showbusiness as it announced the designers and icons who have bagged prizes this year.
Jennifer Hudson gave some Red Queen glamour
Of course, it was Beyonce who landed the coveted Fashion Icon Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and indeed she showed off her talents in the wardrobe department by eschewing the traditional red carpet gown in favour of a striped pant-suit and an enormous brimmed hat (kind of like a cross between Beetlejuice and Winona Ryder in the same film). Bey-utiful. It's just as well she opted for something a little different given that her contemporaries were especially difficult to beat; Jennifer Hudson showed off her enviable curves in a black and red Prabal Gurung piece that was more reminiscent of the Red Queen.
The two popular former judges are said to be poised to return to the show when it moves to ITV.
Former ‘The Voice’ judges Kylie Minogue and Tom Jones could be set to return to the show, when it moves to ITV for it’s sixth season. According to The Mirror, the two former judges are set to join a revamped line-up which is also rumoured to include Jennifer Hudson and Will.i.am.
Kylie Minogue is rumoured to be making a return to ‘The Voice’.
A source told the newspaper that Black Eyed Peas star Will is the only current coach ITV are hoping to hang on to. “They’ve pushed the boat out to get Will to stay and are very much hoping he’ll say yes,” the source said. "He loves the show and he’s actually a bigger star here than he is in the US.”

And your Super Bowl performer this year is... Renee Fleming. Let's see what she's up against.
Opera soprano Renee Fleming has been announced to sing the “Star-Spangled Banner” at the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII in MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Feb. 2. Fleming’s appointment is a pretty big deal, considering that the Super Bowl is easily the most watched television event of the year in the US. Last year, 111 million people nationwide tuned into the game, the infamous Super Bowl ads and, of course, the half time show. Fleming is also a bit of an unusual choice, given that the anthem has been performed by mainstream pop stars every year for the past decade.
When it comes to performing live, Fleming is a trusted veteran.
Some of the performances have been stunning and unforgettable, like Aretha Franklin’s 2006 rendition, while others, like Christina Aguilera’s 2011 blunder might be better left forgotten. Hopefully, this year’s anthem performance will have patriots in tears (the good kind), but if not, there are always these historical renditions to look back on fondly.

The 32 year-old has lost a tremendous amount of weight, 80 pounds to be exact, since becoming a spokesperson for Weight Watchers in 2010.
But cutting down or giving up alcohol had nothing to do with her impressive feat.
Hudson helps explain the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to young people with some hilarious results.
With the launch of its new Affordable Care Act (ACA), AKA Obamacare, The White House needed a little help making the information of its new healthcare scheme accessible. Realising most youngsters spend their time of the internet these days, White House officials invited a group of celebrities to sit and discuss ways of communicating the aims and benefits of Obamacare through pop culture.
Jennifer Hudson Used Her Talents As Actress & Comedian To Help Educate People.
Jennifer Hudson, Amy Poehler, and representatives for both Alicia Keys and Oprah Winfrey headed to The White House to form strategies of introducing Obamacare to the younger generations without making it seem like a lecture.
The singer/actress lampooned Kerry Washington's character on the hit presidential-scandal drama for an Obamacare PSA
Jennifer Hudson and the online team over at Funny Or Die hooked up for a scandalous campaign promoting the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as it is more widely known.

With a heavy dose of tragedy and social commentary, this one probably won't leave anyone unaffected.
The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete looks like one of those stories that leave a bad taste in your mouth, precisely because of how well-made they are. Mister is a 13-year-old boy living in poverty in Brooklyn, taking care of his younger brother Pete and trying to help his convicted, substance-dependent mother find a job that doesn’t require a background check.
When his mother is once again jailed. However, Mister is forced to fend for himself. He also has to take care of 9-year-old Pete, while the two hide from social workers, the police and worst of all – the criminals his mother was involved with. Mister is often reduced to begging on the street to feed himself and little Pete. Gradually, the boy learns that his mother isn’t going to return, even after she is let free.
Mister is a 13-year-old boy living amongst the poverty stricken suburbs of Brooklyn, New York. Living with his substance-dependent and off-the-rails mother, he has developed an unusual level of maturity and independence and tries his hardest to help his family by trawling through the local newspapers for jobs for his mother that wouldn't run background checks. However, when she is arrested and jailed, Mister and 9-year-old Pete set out to take care of themselves - even if it means begging on the street - whilst hiding from police, child protection services and dangerous criminals his mother was involved with. As the weeks wear on, Mister starts to truly understand that he is on his own now when it becomes clear that his mother is not going to come back for him even when she's free.

John Fogerty has enlisted a number of musical luminaries for his new album.
Nobody can accuse John Fogerty of resting on his laurels. The former Creedence Clearwater Revival singer has teamed up with the likes of Foo Fighters, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Jennifer Hudson and Kid Rock for his new album 'Wrote A Song For Everyone' - featuring fresh takes on his classic hits.
Fogerty, who released the new record on his 68th birthday on Tuesday (May 28, 2013), revamped some of his Creedence work, along with solo hits and new songs. It was in fact Fogerty's wife who had the idea of a collaborative effort, "She suggested getting all my favorite artists to do various songs, and it seemed like a great idea - to do fresh arrangements and interpretations of them," Fogerty told Reuters.
"It's remarkably hard to get 14 different artists organized, as they're all busy with their own careers, touring and recording," Fogerty said. "Everyone wanted to do it but I had no idea it'd be so difficult."
Former 'American Idol' finalist Jennifer Hudson is rumoured to be on the judging panel for season 13.

Now she could be set to revisit the beginnings of her own career though, this time, on the other side of the table according to a source in TheWrap. She made an appearance on the show recently for the finale and is allegedly now in talks with the producers. 'She got the offer and her reps are currently negotiating with [production company] Fremantle', said the source, adding, 'The show's producers feel they've lost their core audience. And they want to bring back former contestants in order to tell their core audience, 'We love you.' They know they've made some major mistakes over the past few seasons and they want to make it right with their fans.'

Jennifer Aniston appears to have undergone some cupping treatment recently.
On the face of it, Jennifer Aniston looked pretty swell at the premiere of her new Lifetime movie Call Me Crazy in Los Angeles this week. Wearing a simple black romper and her hair tied back in a ponytail, the Wanderlust star, 44, managed to stand out from the crowd with subtle elegance. But then there were the cupping marks.
The actress failed to hide a pattern of circular marls on her back, which People magazine said were probably the result of cupping, a Chinese form of alternative medicine designed to promote circulation. 'Cupping' normally uses small glass bulbs that are heated and placed on the skin. Sounds terrible right? Well, it often leaves red marks on the skin for several days, though encourages better circulation of blood.
While the history of cupping dates back thousands of years, the first uses are found in the teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Other famous fans of the treatment are said to include Gwyneth Paltrow, which isn't exactly a surprise now is it?

Jennifer Aniston was the star attraction at the Call Me Crazy premiere in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Aniston stunned at the Los Angeles premiere of her upcoming television movie 'Call Me Crazy: A Five Film' this week. The former Friends star executive produced the movie - a compilation of short films about mental illness premiering April 20 on the Lifetime channel. At the premiere, Aniston joked that he's a total "pushover" when in charge.
For a television movie, Call Me Crazy boasts a pretty impressive looking cast, with Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Snow and Oscar winners Melissa Leo and Octavia Spencer. "We were lucky to get the cast that we got," Aniston told the BBC at Tuesday's premiere, "We want to our dream team and we just had all the star align, and people were just willing and excited to jump on board just because they wanted to be a part of this topic of mental illness. To remove the stigma to remove the shame."
Hudson gives a stirring performance in a particularly emotional role, saying, "I'm passionate about the things I do, and I felt that this was something that was worth doing. Mental illness is something that's there, that we don't realise it's there. I definitely wanted the chance to help raise awareness."

The Oscars stage will be graced by a host of stars this year as Musicals and James Bond are celebrated
Some big names have been added to the Oscar performers list this year – people like Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and the cast of Les Miserables will be joining already announced performers, including the cast of Les Miserables and some other massive names.
You might be sensing a pattern here. That’s right, this year’s Academy awards will be paying tribute to one of Hollywood’s most beloved format of the past decade – the good ol’ musical. The performances will highlight some of the most successful film musicals of the past ten years, including Dreamgirls, Chicago and of course Les Mis. That list of performers is beginning to make a whole lot more sense, right?
The show’s producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, made the announcement about the show’s theme last month and since then more and more performers have steadily been added to the list. We are pleased to have been able to amass so much talent to create the celebration of musicals of the last decade that we envisioned,” Zadan and Meron said in a joint statement.

The brand new X-Factor judge, Britney Spears, attended a 'solemn' emotional tribute to Whitney Houston entirely organised and funded by the Grammys entitled “We Will Always Love You: A Grammy Salute to Whitney Houston” held at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles this week. The esteemed guests all chose to not broach the darker sides of Houston's later life, instead opting for a celebratory slant, praising her career and achievements.
There were numerous musical tributes in the show. Usher sang 'I Believe In You and Me' and Cece Winans and Yolanda Adams gave a duet of 'Count on me'. According to NY Daily News, Houston's family broke down in tears at the gospel singers' rendition of the song. Jennifer Hudson opted for more up-beat song choices and went for a medly of How Will I Know, I'm Every Woman and I Wanna Dance With Somebody. Celine Dion was also meant to be performing but unfortunately couldn't make it. She has, however, recorded her own version of 'Greatest Love of All' but it will be included on the hour long show which will be aired on CBS in November.
Spears said that she “admired Whitney” and that it was a cover of Houston's 'I Have Nothing' that ended up winning her a record deal. Halle Berry was another guest at the event whose speech was particularly moving. She spoke of Houston's impact upon women: “She inspired a generation of little girls and women to believe in their own dream and to know that they had within themselves the greatest gift of all... I was one of those little girls who then became a woman who never ever, ever, stopped loving Whitney Houston."
The story starts as we watch Larry, Moe and Curly (Hayes, Diamantopoulos and Sasso) growing up in an orphanage, watched over by Mother Superior (Lynch) and several rather frazzled nuns (including Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David). But when the orphanage is threatened with closure, the clueless trio heads out to raise the cash needed to save it. They immediately run into the shamelessly wealthy Lydia (Vergara), who hires them to bump off her husband so she can run off with his business partner (Bierko). But of course everything goes crazily wrong.
