Carrie Underwood is no stranger to lighting up the ACM Awards, and on Sunday, she did it once again when she took the stage for a special performance. Clad in a sparkly gown, the singer performed a gorgeous medley of songs from her My Savior gospel album, including “Amazing Grace” and “How Great Thou Art.” She was also joined by CeCe Winans for a duet of their hit “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” and the way their voices melded together was almost, dare we say, heavenly? Last year, Underwood was named entertainer of the year at the ceremony, and this year, she’s nominated for video of the year for “Hallelujah” with John Legend.
Underwood’s big night at the ACM Awards comes just days after she attended the Latin American Music Awards, where she performed “Tears of Gold” with David Bisbal. Check out her ethereal performance with Winans ahead.
Chadwick Boseman’s legacy is unmatched. The late actor’s life and career is being remembered in Netflix’s latest documentary, Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist, which premiered on April 17. In the special, Boseman’s costars and friends pay homage to him by exploring his commitment to his craft and looking back at his transcending performances in past films, including Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Black Panther. “I am an artist. People call me an actor,” Boseman says in a voiceover. “I wouldn’t necessarily call myself an actor. I would call myself an artist.”
Boseman died of colon cancer at age 43 in August 2020. Most recently, Marvel confirmed that the actor would not be replaced in the upcoming Black Panther 2. “Chadwick Boseman was an immensely talented actor and an inspirational individual who affected all of our lives professionally and personally,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said during Disney’s Investor Day event. “His portrayal of T’Challa the Black Panther is iconic and transcends iteration of the character in any other medium from Marvel’s past.”
From Viola Davis to Denzel Washington and Taylour Paige, keep reading to see the most heartfelt quotes from Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist, which will be available to stream for a limited run of 30 days.
The Powerpuff Girls live-action reboot is in production, and newly released set photos have fans wondering what other classic characters we can expect to see from the original cartoon. Glamorous down to the tips of his thigh-high boots and lobster claws, His Infernal Majesty, aka HIM, is one of the most notable Powerpuff Girls characters yet to be cast for the show. So, we decided to take a deep dive into the demonic villain’s history with the superheroes to mentally prepare ourselves, just in case he chooses to dazzle us with his evil presence all over again.
So far, The CW has confirmed that the cast will feature Chloe Bennet as Blossom, Dove Cameron as Bubbles, Yana Perrault as Buttercup, Donald Faison as Professor Utonium, Robyn Lively as Miss Bellum, and Nicholas Podany as Mojo Jojo. There’s no word yet on whether HIM will make it into the live-action series, especially since the Powerpuff Girls have such a wide range of villains to choose from. But, we have to admit, the makeup and costume design potential alone are enough to make us cross our fingers that he’ll appear in the reboot. Relive your childhood and read through five reasons we need to see HIM in the live-action series ahead.
Lizzo is shooting her shot with Chris Evans. On April 17, the Grammy award-winning singer shared a TikTok video giving a glimpse into her Instagram messages with Captain America himself. “Don’t drink and DM, kids,” she captioned the clip.
As far as we know, Chris and Lizzo are both single, so perhaps this is the start of something new. He was last linked with actress Lily James in July 2020, but it appears she moved on later that same year. We hope we can count on Lizzo to continue keeping followers in the loop on this saga – and share his response. The first step is getting Chris to hit the “follow back” button. Let’s make it happen, Mr. Evans!
The Duke of Edinburgh’s death this month at the age of 99 brought an end to his remarkably long marriage to Queen Elizabeth II. Nearly 74 years ago, their royal wedding was a national event, a welcome break from the difficult years after World War II. The couple accepted that their big day would be public but hoped what followed – their honeymoon – would be just for them.
Philip and Elizabeth planned multiple weeks away in different parts of Britain and were looking forward to what would essentially be their first extended period alone together. (They did end up having time to themselves but traveled with help; Elizabeth’s dresser Bobo MacDonald went along, as did Philip’s valet John Dean.) The itinerary included a stay at Broadlands, the Hampshire estate owned by Philip’s aunt and uncle Louis and Edwina Mountbatten, followed by a visit to the royal family’s Scottish getaway Balmoral, where the newlyweds stayed in a house called Birkhall.
A special and secluded getaway wasn’t exactly what was in store for Elizabeth, then a princess, and her new husband, Philip, but their honeymoon did set the tone for what would be a very interesting 73 years together.
