Oscars 2019: The Queen is in the Building

The Oscar opened with Adam Lambert, American Idol alumni, singing a medley of Queen ’s hit songs from Bohemian Rhapsody. Adam Lambert and the Queen band will be touring this summer. Plus, Adam Lambert is a fantastic singer.

Since there was no host for the show, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph lighten up the mood, more like Bob Hope, and Johnny Carson would do make them laugh. Comedians make a good host. Next year, would you please get James Corden he is funny please check him out on CBS Late, Late Show with James Corden. Or Tina Fey?

The top winner for the night was Bohemian Rhapsody with four awards for sound mixing, sound editing, and film editing, While Rami Maleck got for best actor.

Roma got three awards, including best director, Best foreign film, and best cinematography.

Mahershala Ali

Green Book won for Best Picture and best supporting actor for Marhershala Ali.

Best Visual went to First Man

For the category for best costume, Melissa McCarthy and Tyree Henry strolled on to the stage wearing their costumes. Melissa McCarthy dressed in bunnies on her gown from the Favourite and her red hair from Mary Queen of Scots, while Henry dressed as Mary Poppins. The puppet rabbit was having difficulty opening the envelope. So the Oscar goes to Ruth E. Carter for Black Panther, and also Black Panther won for the best music score and production design.

Dana Carvey and Mike Myers present Bohemian Rhapsody. They reunite together on stage and present Bohemian Rhapsody as best picture nominee.

America Got Talent: Champion 2019 Sim Lim wins

If you have been watching America’s Got Talent for the past seven weeks on NBC. Simon claims to be “The best of the best of the best” meaning the best of America’s Got Talent and other shows around the world who have their Got Talent show in their country. Got Talent franchise over 184 countries across the globe showing off their talent to the whole new world – they should do this every year. Have a champion show and making their dreams come true, this is a platform for getting into show business.

The viewers were treated with encore performances from fan favorites contestants like The Clairvoyants, Jackie Evancho (My favorite) and many more.

Also, they had behind the scenes of how it got started, Simon Cowell looked younger. Judges included Piers Morgan, David Hasselhoff, Sharron Osborne, Brandy Norwood. The host includes Jerry Springer, Regis Phillman, Nick Cannon, Tyra Banks, and now Terry Crews. Mel B and Heidi Klum will not return as judges this summer they have Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough.

Deadly Games backed up with Cristina Ramos and Brain Justin Crow duetting a killer rendition of Queen’s “The Show Must Go On.” Brian Justin Crow and Cristina Ramos should do the soundtrack for 007 movies. They have incredible voices.

Shin Lim was joined with Crew’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-star Melissa Fumero for one last mind-blowing trick. Shin Lim is an incredible card magician. I hope he got his show in Las Vegas.

Darci Lynn Farmer and The Muppet’s Rowlf duetted with “Edna” for a unique ballad dedicated to Cowell. It was adorable.

Then the results came in, dim the lights, and here we go. What no love for Susan Boyle, they should have let her sing for one more time. In fifth place Preacher Lawson, fourth place Cristina Ramos, third place Kseniya Simmonova (Sand Art), Second place, Darci-Lynne Farmer and the winner is Shim Lim as America’s Got Talent Champion official winner.

They had the superfans who did the voting, and they were not part of the studio audience. They sat off stage and voted electronically by a secret ballot. But they could hear the comments by the judges and the host.

Do you think the right act won America’s Got Talent Champion?

Kim Possible Movie Review

This is Disney Channel first ever live action from animated successful show Kim Possible (2002- 2007).

In the movie, Kim Possible (Sadie Stanley) and her best friend Ron Stoppable (Sean Giambrone) embark on their freshman year of high school, all while saving the world from evil villains. While Kim and Ron have always been one step ahead of their opponents, navigating the social hierarchy of high school is more challenging than the action-heroes ever imagined. With Drakken (Todd Stashwick) and Shego (Taylor Ortega) lurking in the wings, Kim must rely on her family and friends on Team Possible — Ron, tech-genius Wade (Issac Ryan Brown), new friend Athena (Ciara Wilson), and Rufus, a naked mole-rat — to stop these super villains.

Sadie Stanley, this is her first movie, and she was fantastic playing the iconic role Kim Possible. She played the giggling girl on Game Shakers to superstardom on the Disney Channel. Remember her name, and she got fame! She’s from South Carolina. I hope she gets better roles in TV and movies.

Sean Giambrone

Sean Giambrone

He plays Ron Stoppable. He’s from the ABC show “The Goldberg” if you haven’t seen the show. And he’s a very successful actor too.

Ciara Riley Wilson

She plays Athena an Android. She can mimic Kim Possible moves and make it better. She’s also actor herself.  She appeared on Speechless (ABC), Bizaardvark (Disney Channel), Henry Danger (Nick) and other popular TV shows.

Patton Oswalt who voice Professor Dementor in the animated series, plays Professor Dementor, the real-life villain in the movie. And Shego played by Taylor Ortego. And Nancy Cartwright who voices animated Rufus in the TV show does the voice.

Christy Carlson Romano makes a cameo appearance she plays a pop star Poppy Blue.

Todd Stashwick plays Dr. Draken, he has been in Gotham, and Teen Wolf.

Other stars such as Alyson Hannigan Dr. Ann Possible, Issac Ryan Brown as Wade

Erika Tham as Bonnie

I don’t care what people say about this movie, Disney Channel knows how to find good upcoming talent and the cast them to make them successful in the entertainment business. Sadie Stanely will become successful. Kim Possible movie is fantastic to watch with your children. Great film and a great cast.  You will enjoy this movie!

It’s playing throughout February on the Disney Channel, watch it with your kid!

Haunted Theaters Halls in North Carolina

When we see a traveling Broadway play that comes to our area, they need a place to put a show. Eventually, the owner will tell them it’s a beautiful place and the stage area is massively big, and the dressing rooms are actually they never seen before. Actually, the dressing room is the same as an ordinary dressing room in any theater — lights on the mirror, bathroom in the corner, and a sink with a mirror. And of course, a smelling trash can with a burrito.

One thing theater owner won’t tell you, the building is old and with that, it has a lot of history behind it, and it is haunted. 

McGlohan Theater

The McGlohan Theater in Charlotte, NC. It was named after a jazz pianist Loonis McGlohan. First, it was a Baptist Church in the early years and in the 1980’s it was converted into a performing arts building. The ghosts that inhabit the theatre are thought to be from the church days and have been heard roaming the halls and singing on the stage. It’s hard to be surprised considering the theatre is located in Spirit Square.

The Carolina Theater in Greensboro NC has two gruesome encounters of the paranormal. In 1927, the theater was open on Halloween night, and it was plagued by the death of a construction worker that fell to his death during the building construction.

In the 1980s a woman hid inside the theater after closing and was killed when a fire broke out. Her body was found in the stairwell, and since her presence in the building was unlawful, it is believed that she set the fire for attempting suicide.

Today, co-workers and visitors of the theater claim to have weird things to happen, like seats will be moving, lights flickering on stage during a rehearsal, and sometimes she will sit at the back of the auditorium watching the play and disappears.

The Old Courthouse Theater in Concord, NC. It was built in 1922 as a Baptist Church. In the 1970’s it was converted to a theater. The worst critic is “The Deacon” who is the apparition who stalks the premise of the building. He would flicker hall lights, rattling set pieces that he doesn’t know and messing with the stage lights. Whistling, singing voices, and jingling keys. It has been difficult with the new owners and recently there was a fire in 2018.

Mom Looks for Dates for Her Son

It’s Valentine’s Day, and it could be lonely for single people to find dates on Valentine’s day. Not this day, a mom in Maryland in her 50’s was showing a picture of her son and asking women or possible single women would they like to date her son – that would be embarrassing.

She was seen on two campuses in Towson, Maryland. The campus police issued an “incident advisory” meaning a link to pictures that she may have and the woman herself. Police say, “it may cause concern.”

University officials say the woman isn’t being sought for criminal investigation, but they do want her to stop.

When the son was found out, he did not say anything. He left the interview.

He was about to do movies which supposedly to come out in 2019, and they were “No Place Like Home” and “Wind of Heaven” if these movies were finished before his death. It would be his last appearances.

He lost son Julian who took his life in 2014 while getting treatment at a mental health facility. He left behind Paris and Lola. St. John’s fiancee, model Kseniya Mikhaleva, tweeted, “You were everything to me.”

In 2017, around the death of Julian suicide, Kristoff threatened to kill himself. He was placed under a 72-hour hold for a psychiatric evaluation.

The cause of death reported by TMZ was depression and alcohol.

He will be missed.

They may have two funerals a private one for the family and on the show. Or how will they write him off the show?
