The comments are the latest in a host of withering remarks she has made about her former colleague
Jennifer Hudson is coming to the All-Star Game to pay tribute to Kobe Bryant with her voice. The NBA has released a list of entertainers headed to All-Star weekend, the group headlined by Hudson — the two-time Grammy winner and Oscar winner — who, just before Sunday night’s player introductions, will perform a special tribute to Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the seven other victims of the helicopter crash that took their lives in Southern California on Jan. 26. Other additions the NBA revealed Thursday: DJ Khaled, Quavo and Lil Wayne will join the previously announced Grammy winner and Chicago native Chance the Rapper during Sunday night’s halftime show; Queen Latifah will be joined by Chicago youth to perform Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today” during Saturday’s events; and the Chicago Children’s Choir will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before the Rising Stars game on Friday night.
The Oscar winner's loved ones were killed by her sister's ex in 2008.
The couple are said to have been getting to this stage for a “number of months”, and the Dreamgirls star was granted a protective order against David, who she has eight-year-old son David Jr. with. “Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé.
It seems most of us were distracted by the outfits though: Will.i.am fresh off the set of A Clockwork Orange, Tom as Colonel Sanders and Jennifer as the coconut Quality Street. Money can’t buy you everything it seems, including a decent stylist.
Tom Jones is fine with it but I’m not alone in feeling distraught on the rejected constestants’ behalf. Rachel Rose – a versatile vocal in a good performance but maybe not original enough – and Jamie Greer, who bravely covered an All Saints song, which I thought would see him through, both earned standing ovations from the audience – not a bad response to take away, but how much more valuable would it have been if the judges had told them to their faces what their opinions were: great singers but not what they’re looking for. Jason Jones, a mild mannered, nice family man who works in a customer service call centre, knocked us all out with unexpected vocal greatness, a passionate and musical rocky-ish but contemporary one.
You’d think Tom Jones and Will.i.am could stretch to the odd steak bake on their seven figure salaries, wouldn’t you? One London bakery has roasted ITV bosses after receiving an email asking them to provide The Voice’s judging panel with a selection of FREE baked goods to munch on while filming the show. Vincent Ayres, who runs a bakery in Nunhead, South London told The Star he received a rather flaky email begging for his pastries with a promise of ‘influential’ celebs tasting his wares.
The Voice UK host Emma Willis has revealed that the revamped version of the talent show is moving to its new home on ITV with a particularly brutal twist. In addition to the new TV station and judging line-up, there will be a drastic shake-up at the blind auditions stage of the singing competition, where all four coaches have to judge a contestant based purely on their vocal abilities. Presenter Emma Willis opened up about the exciting new format change, explaining how she thinks it will help to refocus the coaches’ feedback and allow for far more honest critiques.
Kylie Minogue and Jennifer may be set to join will.i.am on the sixth series of The Voice. Minogue, below, proved hugely popular as a mentor during her first stint in 2014 and a source told the Daily Mirror: “They’ve pushed the boat out to get Will to stay and are very much hoping he’ll say yes. “We all know Kylie loves her spinning around and it would be just brilliant to have her back.
