Season 10 of The Voice kicked off with some wonderful performances on Monday, including Victor Solomon’s rendition of “Glory.” For his blind audition, the singer made the bold choice to actually perform Voice coach John Legend‘s Oscar-winning song. While Legend has never turned for a person singing one of his songs before, there was just something about Solomon’s rendition that changed his mind. I mean, his voice sounds just like Legend’s, as Kelly Clarkson pointed out. In fact, Legend went as far as to say Solomon sang it better than him. As Nick Jonas and Blake Shelton tried to persuade Solomon to join their teams, Legend eventually won him over by performing his hit “Ordinary People” with him. Watch the incredible audition above.
Although March 2020 feels like it was just yesterday, Jimmy Fallon and John Legend confirm it’s been a full year of being “bored indoors.” During Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show, the pair heralded in the new month with a spoof of Beauty and the Beast‘s “Belle” titled “March Again.” Fallon begins the song with the all-too-relatable phrase, “It’s been a full year, of waking up to say . . . I’m bored, indoors.” From Fallon’s lamenting about his neighbor’s dog no longer being a puppy to Legend chilling with a full bottle of Rosé in the bath and not shaving his chest hair, the video hits a little too close to home. Did I awkwardly look at the other end of my couch when Fallon talked about moving from one end to the other when he was done for the day? Yes, but how else am I supposed to “commute” when I work from home? You can see just how scarily accurate the spoof is in the full video above.
When I first saw The Queen’s Gambit on Netflix last year, I knew Anya Taylor-Joy was bound to make a splash this award season, and that’s exactly what happened at the Golden Globes. On Sunday night, the 24-year-old actress took home her first Golden Globe, for best performance by an actress in a limited series or motion picture made for television. The show also won best limited series. In addition to making adorably flustered speeches, Anya stunned with not one but two incredible looks. Though she opted for a deep part and blond locks instead of her character’s fiery red bob, she was still a total queen as she posed for glamour shots on Instagram. May we all exude the confidence of Anya as she casually sits on her couch. I don’t know about you, but her big night made me want to watch the entire series all over again. See more pictures of her Golden Globes appearance ahead.

Among March’s highlights are a historical-fiction novel that will transport you to a ship known as the “Titanic of the South,” a nonfiction title to help you conquer self-doubt, and a stirring collection of poetry about identity — it truly is a bounty of literary goodness. And that’s just the beginning, from thoughtful sci-fi novels to sprawling family tales that span decades, the best books of March are enthralling, surprising, and captivating reads that will have you turning pages all spring long.
If anyone was having the night of their lives during the 2021 Golden Globes, it was probably Andra Day. After Andra made history as the second Black woman to ever win best actress in a motion picture drama, Regina King, along with Aldis Hodge and her dog Cornbread, crashed the 36-year-old’s Access Hollywood interview. Andra’s reaction to seeing Regina was priceless. I mean, how else would you react to being in her presence besides absolutely losing it? After exchanging hugs and fawning over each other, the pair sat down so Andra could continue her interview.
When asked how proud she was of the Golden Globe winner, Regina had this to say: “Oh my God, are you kidding me?!” Apparently, Regina and Aldis found out in real time that Andra was staying at their hotel, and they set out to find her. One of their cutest moments included Regina fixing Andra’s jewelry as Andra said, “This cost too much money. I’m not trying to get fined.” In a more serious moment from the interview, Andra discussed how important her history-making win was: “I just want to keep seeing this platform, keep expanding, where it’s not a conversation anymore.” You can watch Regina and Andra’s full exchange above.
