June 2011 - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


After last week’s bloodbath, Thursday’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE results show was relatively tame. However, it wasn’t any less heartbreaking as two dancers still needed to go home.

With arguably the strongest group of competitors ever, very few contestants are considered “safe” and indeed a few fan faves landed in the bottom 3 couples.

To find out who was eliminated, keep reading after the break…

Is anyone else watching the ABC summer show, ROOKIE BLUE?

I recently caught up on the entire series and I enjoyed it so much, I had to find out what was coming up in season two.

Thankfully, ROOKIE BLUE executive producer Tassie Cameron took time out of her busy day — she and the rest of the RB writers are currently in development of a potential season three, with the hopes that the show will get renewed — to chat with Give Me My Remote about tonight’s brand new episode, the increasingly complicated love lives of our rookies, and why the consequences of their job will play a bigger role this season…

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Highlight: Tadd and Jordan

Filed under So You Think You Can Dance

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE brought a little bit of sexy to primetime with Wednesday’s show — um, what was up with all the kissing after Melanie and Marko’s routine?! — but Tadd and Jordan’s number took things to a whole new level.

Given their state of undress when the dance started, it’s no surprise the number was fairly sensual. Heck, I don’t know how Tadd managed to put on jeans while dancing, but wow. They made great use of the bed, the blanket and their clothes as props.

Did you miss their routine during last night’s episode? Check it out now!

Back in the series premiere of THE VOICE, Adam Levine was so impressed with Javier Colon’s blind audition of “Time After Time” that he told Colon, “I want to win this s***…so I really, really need you to pick me [to be your coach].”

Sure enough, when the finale results were revealed Wednesday night, Colon was crowned the champion of THE VOICE’s first season.

Give Me My Remote caught up with Colon and Levine after their win, so take a look at the videos below to find out what Levine told Colon right after the results were announced, Colon’s thoughts on winning it all, singing with Stevie Nicks and more…

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Highlight: Melanie and Marko

Love was in the air during Wednesday’s episode of  SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE.

Melanie and Marko’s NappyTabs routine about best friends who realize they have feelings for each other set off a chain reaction: not only did the duo share a (scripted) smooch during the dance, but it inspired the judging panel — comprised of Kristin Chenoweth, Lil C, plus regulars Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy — to get in on the, um, action. (Props to host Cat Deely, whose reaction was priceless and proved once again why she’s one of the most underrated reality show hosts.)

Did you miss Melanie and Marko’s dance? Did you catch it and want to rewatch their routine?

Comments Off on THE VOICE Finals: Watch the Original Song Performances! Plus, Who Did You Vote For?

For THE VOICE finals, the contestants were given arguably their biggest challenge so far — perform an original song.

An original song is tricky, because not only are you hoping the audience (and your voters) can get behind whatever new song you perform, but there’s always the risk of the song veering into the “reality show cheesy” category.

How did THE VOICE contestants do? Check out their songs and vote in our polls below…

“I think it’s episode four, where all the guys — I go undercover, too — but the guys go undercover pretending to be millionaires,” Marsha Thomason (Diana) teased. “And it’s like a millionaire matchmaking service thing and that was very, very fun.”

As Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer try to keep their distance from each other, each girl looks to distractions to help fulfill the “separate time” request from their parents.

Not only does the class qualify as “separate time,” but it also gives her an excuse to see Ezra on campus, so there are benefits on both sides — that is until she finds out Jenna is also taking the class. Emily stays focused on her swimming career and how that could help her stay in Rosewood. When she doesn’t get the solid commitment from Danby University, Emily comes up with a way to fudge things to convince her mom to stay. But will goody-two-shoes Emily be able to go through with her sneaky plan? Feeling like the only one who doesn’t have a hobby, Hanna turns to Lucas to see if she can join the yearbook staff to fill her time. But with Lucas still hurting from their last encounter, Hanna’s new hobby might be trying to make amends.
