World of Dance is something to dance about!
May 30th, 2017 under J-Lo, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

If you love dance, then you are going to love World of Dance that debuts at 10p on NBC tonight. The show pits dancers from all over the World against each other, and only one can win the grand prize of $1 million.

On tonight’s season premiere we see all types of dancers like Ballroom, Contemporary, Beat Boys and Jazz and each one of them will blow you away. So much so, you will want to take dance classes just so you can move just a tiny bit like them.

After each performer shows us why they are there, the judges, Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo, score them on 5 different criteria. Each category, Performance, Technique, Choreography, Creativity and Presentation, is worth 20 points for a total of 100 points from each judge and in order to move to the next round they need to score above an average of 80 points.

On tonight’s show, only one team won’t move on, but all the others will. I don’t agree with with which performer scored the highest score of the night because I thought they were pretty weak. But I did like the judges’ opinions for the most part. In fact, I really liked how the show wasn’t about them unlike Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance. Although, Derek Hough needs to tone it down a bit because he is almost as annoying as Nigel Lythgoe and Bruno Tonioli. Ne-Yo gives just enough and J-Lo is tolerable and I normally can’t stand her.

Also on the judges front and this is for the directors, stop showing their reactions during the routines. We want to see the dancers dance and not the judges’ faces. That is my biggest complaint and that says a lot that that is the only one.

Therefore, if you love dance, you will love this show. You will see things you have never seen before in dance and that is hard to do these days.


2017 says Bye Bye Birdie until 2018
May 25th, 2017 under J-Lo, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

In October, NBC announced that Bye Bye Birdie with Jennifer Lopez was going to be their 2017 live Christmastime musical and today they said they are postponing it until 2018. According to Variety, the delay is due J-Lo’s busy schedule. Which I find interesting because she has had six months to plan for the rehearsal schedule needed for the live Musical production. That makes me wonder what is the real reason? Like is it due to it being an older, not as well known production and the modern day one they did in December didn’t stick like Hairspray with the ratings? We don’t know.

What we do know is that there will be no live production this year, and the next time we will see one on NBC is this Easter with Jesus Christ Superstar. That live show is done by the same production team that is doing Bye Bye Birdie. Maybe 2 live performances was too much for them and too costly for the network to bomb like poop coming from birdie in a tree? Things that make you go hmmmm?


J-Lo is a vision in this shade of blue!
May 2nd, 2017 under J-Lo. [ Comments: none ]

We are used to seeing Jennifer Lopez wearing next to nothing, but yesterday for the Met Gala she covered herself up in a flowing, floor length, light blue Valentino gown that is like something old Hollywood would wear on the read carpet.

It is the most beautiful she has ever looked and I think she should cover up more often. She reminds me of a Water Goddess and not a Mistress of the Night like this. What do you think?


Jennifer Lopez leaves very little to the imagination
April 28th, 2017 under J-Lo. [ Comments: none ]

Jennifer Lopez wore a dress to the Latin Billboard Awards yesterday that reminds me of those Crochet Lace Doilies our grandmothers would put on their tables. Because of the crochet style of the gown, if you can call it a gown, it left very little to the imagination.

I get that her career was made on her wearing a very revealing dress at the Grammys in 2000, but isn’t about time the mom of two didn’t show off her body as much as she does. Not that she has a bad figure, but isn’t there more to her? I mean, I don’t like her music and I don’t think she can act, but still. Doesn’t she want to be known for that too? Or does she just want to be known for showing off her bod?


J-Lo and Ray Liotta Share 5 Things to Expect from Shades of Blue S2
March 12th, 2017 under J-Lo, NBC. [ Comments: none ]

Shades of Blue is back for a second season on NBC Sundays at 10p and the show is even more intense this year. Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta recently talked about what’s coming up on the good cop, very bad cop drama at NBC’s TCA Winter Press Day and you are not going to want to muss a single second this season.

What is coming up for Jennifer Lopez’s character Harlee this season?
I mean, the mess just becomes even bigger. And the moral lines and ethical lines are pushed even further, and the struggle becomes even more intense for her because of her daughter, because of who she is as a person and her beliefs. I think what people respond to in Harlee’s character is that, at the end of the day, she’s not, she may have been a cop who, you know, they went around the neighborhood and they collected money and stuff, but they weren’t, in their minds, bad cops. They were really holding the line to what it takes and pushing those areas of black and white and getting in the gray areas there of what it takes to maintain justice and to keep neighborhoods safe. But she was pushed into a further conundrum of what her moral and ethical lines were, and this year, I feel like it goes even further into what she believes is right and wrong. And why people like her is because I think my job is to always keep her truthful but, beyond that, that they feel like she’s still even though you are seeing her do the most outrageous, heinous things, that you still believe that she’s a good person. If I can do that, if I can show you that heart, if I can show you that humanity, then I’m doing my job as far as Harlee is concerned. And I think that we were able to do that this season even with all of the things that this one came up with for me to do that were awful, and for him, too.

Is this season more challenging?
It was a challenging season. You know, I thought the first season was so challenging because it was just emotionally taxing. I think our characters mostly take the brunt of that in this series, but for this one, I knew when I read the first page of the first scene of this season. I was, like, “Okay. That’s what we are doing. We are going there. Okay. We are burying the body. Okay. Here we go. Wrap him up in a curtain, and then knock his teeth out. Got it. I’m there.” So I knew that, emotionally, it wasn’t going to get any easier for her. I knew that it was going to be more of I call this like a storm is coming this season. …There’s this some story about Hurricane Sandy, and it really does feel like they get caught in a hurricane that they can’t get out of this season until there’s so much so many casualties and things that happen that she just it’s like sliding down a slippery slope, and she cannot get traction the whole time. She’s just looking to the side of her and hoping that it stops. And, like, she’s going to hit the bottom, and it just doesn’t stop.

What is happening between Harlee and Nava (Gino Anthony Pesi)?
I think Nava represents for Harlee, like, that life that she could have if she could get out of the mess that she’s in and that she’s kind of created for herself. He’s like the dream. Do you know what I mean? And he keeps coming back to help her. Instead of him kind of rescuing her, she somehow sucks him into her world unintentionally. He just gets caught up in the mess of what happens this season in a really bad way. And I think Harlee is just, you know, again, one of these characters that is so complicated in that she’s so pulled to Woz and she’s so pulled to the loyalty and the code of what they have and what they must do and, at the same time, struggling with her own moral compass as a mother and as a good person and wanting to be a good person after what she’s done, I think, at the beginning of this season, after having killed Miguel at the end of last season, which she felt that she had no choice, that she would never be free of him — to then, at the beginning of this season, say to her daughter, “I don’t want to do this anymore. I promise I’m going to make better choices,” and then to be sucked back in, again, because of the complexities of the relationship she has with Woz and the crew and her loyalty to them.

What about Woz’s (Liotta) love life?
: No. I think Woz is “tri-sexual.” He’ll try anything.
Yeah. They stayed away from that aspect this season, but the relationship that I have with Anna Gunn is not your everyday, you know, go on a date and with a movie. I mean, we have a scene where it turns into very rough S&M y kind of sex. So this is probably something that Jack is trying to exorcise from himself.

Finally, what about Harlee’s relationship with her daughter Cristina (Sarah Jeffery)?
Actually my scenes with Cristina are probably some of the easiest for me to do, and it’s because I am a mom and I do feel such an affinity and an affection toward her and I know our relationship is so clear. The way I feel about her is so untainted. It is what it is. It’s unconditional. It’s fierce. It’s deep. It’s what you have for a child. Everything we play together has that. She’s really the biggest joy in her life and the only joy in her life at the time, really, besides kind of getting to know Nava and following in love with him over this season and getting a little more serious with him. That’s her whole world. So for me, it makes it easy.
