Melanie Amaro Releases Debut Single: What Do You Think?



It’s been nearly eight months since Melanie Amaro walked away with the inaugural X Factor title in America, but the talented singer has only first come out with her debut single this week.

It’s titled “Don’t Fail Me Now,” it’s written by Livvi Franc (who is responsible for hits by such artists as Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson) and it’s a message to Amaro’s hoofers, as these sample lyrics prove:

“I’ve paid my dues, I’ve paid the price, I’ve prayed for you almost every night. I’ve walked the longest road, so don’t fail me now, feet don’t fail me now.”

Give it a listen and then weigh in:

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

John Travolta Sex Allegations Contradicted By Flight Records?



A masseur’s sexual assault claim against John Travolta (the first one) could be unraveling after flight records suggest the actor was not in L.A. at the time.

On the morning of the alleged incident, Travolta, 58, arrived in New York from L.A. TMZ has photos and receipts that allegedly prove it, and there’s this:

He was also seen at a wardrobe fitting in NYC’s Greenwich Hotel. According to the lawsuit, the alleged sexual assault occurred at 10 a.m. in Beverly Hills.

John Travolta in a Tux

Travolta’s attorney, Marty Singer, previously provided a photograph and a Mr. Chow restaurant receipt as proof his client was in New York that day.

The flight can’t be independently verified via public flight tracking services because his plane’s flight records are blocked, but it’s a strong argument.

The attorney strongly denies all claims made by the L.A. masseur, as well as claims from a second John Travolta accuser in Atlanta, also a masseur.

Each accuser is seeking $2 million in damages.

Okorie Okorocha, the lawyer for both plaintiffs, claims other accusers may come forward as well. John Doe #1 issued a statement today, perhaps prompted by this alleged evidence, insinuating that it – not his story – could be fabricated.

Travolta’s attorney calls both accusations “absurd and fictional,” and suggested the second accuser based his made-up story on media reports.

Howard Stern on Britney Spears as X Factor Judge: Train Wreck to Come!



Now that it’s official, Howard Stern is excited for Britney Spears to serve as an X Factor judge. But not for the reasons Simon Cowell is likely hoping for.

Howard Stern in NYCBrit Sings

“I think it’s a wonderful decision,” Stern said today at a New York’s Friars Club press conference. “Britney still thinks the earth is flat… I think we’re going to tune in to see her, to see if she can function through the thing. As far as any real criticism, I think Simon and LA Reid will do that. As far as criticism, I think Britney will sit there and eat a lollipop and wear a sexy outfit…

“I’ll tune in to see what kind of train wreck she is, absolutely.”

Stern himself will enter the world of reality TV judging on Monday when he debuts as an America’s Got Talent panelist. Which of these new judges are you more excited about?

Patrice Wilson, Rebecca Black Producer, Releases "H.A.P.P.Y."



Follow along, THG readers:

Patrice Wilson is the man who wrote “Friday,” the infamous single that put Rebecca Black on the musical map. And, as you might imagine, he took a lot of flak for penning such a ridiculous anthem.

Now, in response to the feedback, Wilson has come out with his very own music video for some single titled “H.A.P.P.Y.”

“I figured I might as well kind of tell the story of what happened,” says Wilson. “When people see that it’s not getting to you, then maybe they can start liking you. With all the hate, I just wanted to make something that would make people smile.”

That’s what Wilson attempts to do here, kicking off the video by crying in front of a fake news report. Watch, react now and then listen to Black’s new track.

Dancing With the Stars Recap: William Levy Foxtrots to the Top



With the semifinals just one week away and a double elimination on tap tonight on Dancing with the Stars, the pressure was on Monday night.

Underdogs Melissa Gilbert and Roshon Fegan needed to step up big time in order to stay out of jeopardy tonight, and one just may have.

Neither could touch the Cuban Brad Pitt, however.

In the first round Monday, William Levy and Cheryl Burke landed atop the leader board with a high-energy foxtrot that earned a perfect score.

“You bring these performances to life,” Carrie Ann Inaba said. “There was care in technique and flare in the movement,” added Len Goodman.

In a close second were Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, who barely survived last week. Their foxtrot earned 29 points and had Bruno Tonioli gushing.

“The sweetest of sweethearts,” he called them.

After earning a perfect score last week, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough earned 28 points for what Bruno called an “amazing” Viennese waltz.

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd’s tango earned 27 points. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas picked up 26 points for their Viennese waltz.

At the bottom after round one were Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, whose foxtrot earned 24 points. Still, the judges were pleased.

For the second round of competition, the pairs added a third partner, choosing either an eliminated pro or a member of the DWTS dance troupe.

Despite a wardrobe malfunction (her pant leg stuck to her shoe), Katherine and Mark’s cha cha with Tristan MacManus was a hit with the judges.

They led round two with 29 points. Bruno called it “sexy and cool,” while Len said it was “clean and clever.” That and technically proficient.

Donald and Peta performed an energetic jive with Karina Smirnoff that earned 28 points – a low score, according to an unsatisfied audience.

Roshon and Chelsie tied with Cheryl and William in the second round. Both couples earned 27 for their paso dobles, keeping them in the hunt.

Val Chmerkovskiy joined his brother and Melissa for a sizzling samba that was deemed her best dance ever by Carrie Ann. They also earned 27.

Finally, Maria and Derek brought in troupe member Henry Byalikovat for a Bollywood-themed samba that caused a rift among the judges.

Here’s how the Dancing With the Stars leaderboard added up:

  • William Levy & Cheryl Burke: (30, 27) 57
  • Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower: (29, 27) 56
  • Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd: (27, 28) 55
  • Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas: (26, 29) 55
  • Maria Menounos & Derek Hough: (28, 25) 53
  • Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: (24, 27) 51

Two couples will be sent home Tuesday night. Who do you think is on the way out, and who do you think will win Dancing With the Stars? Vote below!
