The Voice coach posted a side-by-side snap of herself and Brett to entice viewers to watch them spread some holiday cheer on the late-night talk show.

    Even dogs can get into the spirit of the season. Over the decades, Christmas carols have all been covered in a variety of styles. Songs like “White Christmas” have been adapted to rock 'n' roll, country, hip hop, classical and even techno. Now, “White Christmas” can add one more style to that list: dog. A Twitter account that usually shares recipes posted a video of a dog having a bizarre reaction to the famous Christmas tune. Based on the footage posted by Best Recipes UK, it’s unclear if the dog likes the song or not. Regardless of how he feels about the music, the dog definitely wants his voice to be heard. SMALL PUPPY RESCUED FROM CARPET PYTHON'S GRIP IN AUSTRALIAN BACKYARD In the video, footage of The Three Tenors performing White Christmas is playing on a TV screen. As the singers perform a classical version of the song, a dog runs into frame and sits in front of the TV. The pet then starts howling, seemingly along with the music. Unfortunately for the dog, he’s more than a bit...
    Millennials were very upset on social media after “Today” host Craig Melvin referred to the Goo Goo Dolls as a “classic rock group.”  The rock band, who rose to popularity in the 1990s, joined other immensely popular performers such as Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson at the 88th Annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center ceremony on Wednesday. Unfortunately for fans who regard the annual tree lighting as a major part of their holiday season, COVID-19 restrictions meant that the two-hour broadcast was conducted without a live audience.  However, the biggest bummer of the night for many fans had nothing to do with the pandemic, but rather the ravages of age.  When The Goo Goo Dolls were announced for their performance, Melvin referred to them as a “classic rock group,” the line almost immediately sent fan viewers to Twitter to collectively remark on how old the line made them feel.  DOLLY PARTON USING HER VOICE TO HELP CHILDREN AT NASHVILLE HOSPITAL: 'MAKES MY HEART HAPPY' Goo Goo Dolls rehearse for the 2020 Christmas in Rockefeller Center.

    The Hershey Company is learning that there is no end to the things Twitter will take offense to. This week, the confectionery brand has been forced to respond to backlash over its newest Hershey’s Kisses holiday ad, which is actually just a riff on its classic “Christmas Bells” commercial, wherein the Kisses are recast as a set of bells playing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” This year, however, Hershey’s introduced a new spin on the ad, which begins just like the old one, but is soon interrupted by a little girl who snatches away one of the Kisses to use in a holiday cookie recipe. From that point in the commercial, the familiar bell-chimed tune is replaced with the same song, played on horns. TIKTOK USER 'GRILLS' STEAK OVER AIRPLANE TOILET, DRAWS IRE FROM MAJOR AIRLINES Naturally, this seems to have upset the delicate balance of the Twitterverse, with some social media users even blaming the updated commercial for contributing to an increasingly awful 2020.

    Gov Cuomo sparked uproar on Twitter by playing classic Christmas music and singing during his coronavirus briefing on Monday where he declared: 'COVID is the Grinch' New York Governor Andrew Cuomo sparked uproar on Twitter by playing classic Christmas music and singing during his coronavirus briefing on Monday where he declared: 'COVID is the Grinch.'   An instrumental version of Sleigh Ride began playing over Cuomo's slideshow toward the beginning of the briefing as he listed off treasured holiday traditions - before a Grinch cartoon flashed up on the screen.   'This is the season of the COVID Grinch,' the governor said in a tone far less jolly than the bells and violins playing around him.  'The COVID Grinch is an opportunist and sees this as the season of viral transmission. When you hear that holiday music, think COVID Grinch and be on alert.' Cuomo even briefly sang along to the music to emphasize his message that holiday activities will worsen the spread of coronavirus.     Twitter users seized on the bizarre display within minutes, with some branding it hilariously quirky...

    Are you looking for an excuse to kick off your holiday movie watching early this year? On this day exactly 30 years ago, “Home Alone” opened nationwide on Nov. 16, 1990. Not only was it the highest grossing movie of the year at $285.7 million domestically, trouncing “Ghost,” “Dances with Wolves” and “Pretty Woman,” it remains No. 43 all time (adjusted for inflation), ahead of “Pinocchio,” “Beverly Hills Cop” and “Goldfinger.” To celebrate the 30th anniversary, we look back on what makes it a holiday classic. Imagine you’re a Hollywood producer setting out to make the ultimate holiday family entertainment. To start, you’ll need an original premise that’s never been done before. How about a crowded Chicago family rushes to Paris for the holidays but accidentally leaves its rebellious young son at home, allowing him to discover the importance of family? Who should write it? How about John Hughes, the voice of ’80s youth angst (“The Breakfast Club”), household gadgetry (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), family high jinks (“Christmas Vacation”) and the stress of holiday travel (“Planes, Trains and “Automobiles”). Imagine if Hughes...
    Carly Rae Jepsen has got a new anthem for the holiday season. It’s a equally catchy and cheeky synth-pop single called “It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries,” which takes a hopeful, yet realistic look at the most wonderful (yet often stressful) time of the year for many people. “I love the old fashioned movies and the family traditions and the excitement of gifting presents and decorating the tree and and and … my list is endless,” Jepsen says in a news release. “But each year the pressure to have the perfect Christmas always ends in tears. I call it Christmas versus expectation.” Still, the singer manages to sound cheerful throughout the peppy new track, as she addresses vegan boyfriends, political uncles, grandpas on edibles and other subjects. The sense of gratitude, even amid the difficulties, is palpable.

    cityofstpete/FLICKR For the last five months, Tampa Bay (and the rest of the world) has been scrambling to navigate this new way of life. As we mourn the imminent cancellation of Halloween festivities (although Busch Gardens still wants to scare the shit out of you while socially distancing during Howl-O-Scream), we can still look forward to Christmas festivities. Wanting to raise our spirits and get spark some excitement, "Miracle at Mezzo," a Christmas-themed pop-up hosted at Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails posted the iconic photo of Kevin McCallister from “Home Alone” along with the caption “100 DAYS UNTIL MIRACLE AT MEZZO.” This means we can expect the pop-up to return on November 27, aka Black Friday. For those unfamiliar with Miracle at Mezzo, it is a five-week Christmas celebration where the downtown St. Petersburg coffee, cocktail and oyster bar gets laced with lights, garlands, and ribbons accompanied by classic Christmas tunes. There’s even a Buddy The Elf cutout. Last year, the event poured up nine festival cocktails—including the classic “Christmapolitan” made up of vodka, elderflower, dry vermouth, spiced cranberry sauce,...

But camp Eighties sci-fi classic Flash Gordon has been revealed to have strong links to the other Queen – Her Majesty. The cosmic romp, featuring Brian Blessed as the winged extraterrestrial Prince Vultan, is said to be our monarch's favourite film.  Camp Eighties sci-fi classic Flash Gordon has been revealed to have strong links to the other Queen – Her Majesty. Brian Blessed is pictured above as Prince Vultan The claim has been made by the larger-than-life actor, who famously booms the line that has become his catchphrase: 'Gordon's alive!'
