Indian teen wows 'Britain's Got Talent' judges

Indian teenager Akshat Singh set the stage of popular reality television show "Britain's Got Talent" on fire with his dance moves and also proving his conviction about how "fat people can dance". Singh, 14, appeared on "Britain's Got Talent" on April 21. When one of the judges asked him why he is on the show, he replied that he has two mottos in life: "To make everyone happy and to show everyone that nothing is impossible in our life."

His words seemed to have impressed judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden.?

Singh started his performance with the song "Deva Shree Ganesha" from Agneepath and followed it with some fast-paced dance moves, twerks and 180 degree splits on rapper Nicki Minaj's song "Starships".

A Salman Khan fan, he concluded the dance with a box split and a message: "Fat people can dance". He received a standing ovation from all

Why ITV Is Hot for 'Love Island' And Plans to Take It Beyond the U.K.

"It is a really delightful show. I think it hits the mood of the times. It is romantic, positive, upbeat." Peter Bazalgette, executive chairman of ITV, couldn't stop gushing about the British TV giant's latest hit show on the company's quarterly earnings conference call at the end of July.

No, he wasn't talking about royal drama Victoria or talent show Britain's Got Talent on flagship channel ITV1. And no, he wasn't announcing a return of drama favorite Downton Abbey.

He was talking about ITV2 reality show Love Island, which had just finished its third season amid ...

Mel B Credits Simon Cowell for Helping Her Leave Marriage

Mel B credits Simon Cowell for helping her leave Stephen Belafonte.

The former Spice Girls signer filed for divorce from the TV producer last month and obtained a restraining order after accusing him of abusing her, getting their nanny pregnant and forcing her to take part in threesomes.

And it has now been claimed the 57-year-old music mogul - who has worked alongside Mel for several years on 'The X Factor' in the UK and 'America's Got Talent' - gave his friend the push she needed to walk away from the relationship.

According to TMZ, Simon and others working on the shows felt there was something "seriously wrong" with the marriage, but Mel, 41, would never admit to anything and made various excuses to explain away her bruises.

However, the Syco boss eventually "stepped up" to warn Mel her husband was a "bad guy" and "bad news" and encouraged her to leave.

Looking back at Funny Bones

Robin Bell Feb 2, 2017

Blackpool, Lee Evans, Jerry Lewis and Oliver Platt converge in Funny Bones. Here's why it's a film worth seeking out.

"Why do all the best things in life belong to the past?"

It seems a strange thing to be obsessed about, it wasn't a franchise, and didn't come with much buzz, but when Peter Chelsom's Funny Bones was released in 1995 I instantly latched on to it. It didn't even receive a general release in the cinemas around my area. It was released during that period when you had to check the local newspaper adverts to discover the cinema times. Disappointingly it didn't appear, not until a few weeks later when it had just one showing, on a Thursday night. I'd been talking about the film for ages to my brother, who was now at university, and once I found that it was screening I practically begged

Queen Of Katwe review

David Oyelowo, Lupita Nyong'o and Madina Nalwanga lead the cast of a real gem of a movie. Here's our review of Queen Of Katwe...

For a film that's competing with lots of big new releases in UK cinemas this week, there has been rather too much emphasis on how radical Queen Of Katwe is for a Disney film. Adapted from Tim Crothers' 2012 article The Queen Of Katwe: A Story Of Life, Chess and One Extraordinary Girl's Dream Of Becoming A Grandmaster, Mira Nair's winsome sports underdog movie just happens to be set entirely in Uganda.

In the titular Kampala slum, selfless youth ministry coach Robert Katende (David Oyelowo) introduces chess to the local kids by offering free food at his classes. One pupil in particular, Phiona Mutesi (Madina Nalwanga), proves to be a natural and Robert encourages her to pursue her passion to an international level over a number of years,

Watch Sexy Stormtroopers Dance at Star Wars 8 Wrap Party

Watch Sexy Stormtroopers Dance at Star Wars 8 Wrap Party
Earlier this month, Mark Hamill revealed that production wraps on Star Wars: Episode VIII on Friday, July 22, which coincidentally falls on Star Wars Day at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Unfortunately, there will be no Star Wars panel at Sdcc this year, most likely because Star Wars Celebration is taking place in London this weekend. While there are still a few days left of shooting, both Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley have confirmed on social media that they have both wrapped on this highly-anticipated sequel and the wrap party has already happened. With that, we get a video from Luke Skywalker himself that shows some very sexy Stormtroopers dancing for the crowd

Daisy Ridley announced that she had wrapped on Star Wars 8 by posting an image of her beloved character Rey holding a lightsaber on Instagram. The actress also revealed her "heart is brimming" in the post, but her co-star

'America's Got Talent' Premiere: Did 13-Year-Old Opera Singer Deserve Golden Buzzer?

Is Laura Bretan the Jackie Evancho of "America's Got Talent" Season 11? She's well on her way already.

The 2016 season started last night, featuring new judge Simon Cowell as Howard Stern's replacement, a bunch of wild auditions, and Laura Bretan earning the first Golden Buzzer of the season. The 13-year-old eighth-grader said she was nervous before singing "Nessun Dorma" for the audience (and Simon), but she didn't show it. Agt has a history of loving opera singers and now we have another to follow for (probably?) the whole season. Mel B. gave Bretan the coveted Golden Buzzer, sending her straight through to the live shows.

Was it the right call? Bretan is an amazing performer, with a strong voice and a dramatic, emotional interpretation. (She was also apparently on "Romania's Got Talent.") Bretan was probably going to get through no matter what, especially after that standing ovation and Simon Cowell

Richard Jones – new Britain's Got Talent winner, old tricks?

Magic experts suggest Richard Jones performed tricks similar to those made famous by past talent-show contestants

For many, the magician’s classics of rabbits pulled out of top hats, glamorous assistants sawn in half and the never-ending handkerchief are simply too predictable to stun the modern audience.

The ascendancy of Richard Jones, the soldier-turned-showman who won Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday after a series of magical performances, therefore came as something of a surprise to professional rivals, some of whom say there was a distinct sense of deja vu watching his final act.
