Most people remember Travis Wall as the enviable contemporary dancer from Virginia who was a huge talent on the second season of So You Think You Can Dance (he placed second).

Since then, Travis has been doing some choreography and last week, for the first time since leaving the show, he came back to choreograph a piece for one of the top 10 couples.

His piece was danced by Jason and Jeanine, both contemporary dancers and I think they got his vision perfectly.

No Paula for next Season's Idol

Just a week after it was announced that Ryan Seacrest had scored a deal to make him the highest paid reality show host ever, there seems to be some debate on whether or not Paula Abdul will be returning for season 9 of the highly rated show.

However, fellow judge Simon Cowell told Extra,

"She'll be fine. She'll be on the show, I don't get a lot of say. I've just made it clear that I want Paula on the show."

Paula's manager David Sonenberg raised concern over the weekend, telling the Los Angeles Times that the singer-dancer hasn't been offered a contract yet.

"She's not a happy camper as a result of what's going on. She's hurt," he told the paper.

Mind you, sometimes I personally find Paula a bit over the top, I still can't imagine the show without her.

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson Back Together???

For the first time since former Newlyweds Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey divorced in 2006, the pair has found themselves single together and healing from their respective recent breakups.

So I guess it only obvious that the media would be quick to report a reconciliation for the pair who once shared their life to the world via their reality show which was known for Jessica's blonde, southern wit.

Nick however has been quick to dispel those rumours.

"I think it’s fun storytelling, but there's very little truth to any of it. I certainly have heard about her breakup and I wish her the best, as I’ve always done. Aside from that, there really is nothing to say."

The singer went on to say that he has not spoken to Jessica in two years but he wishes her happiness in all that she does.

He was also asked about his recent breakup with former MTV VJ Vanessa Minillo and he said:
"I'm in a good place. I've learned, through years of not only being in this business, but being in relationships, that you have to take it as it goes. With every experience, you learn something about your life, and you try to take that and move on and be a better person because of it. We'll see what happens."

Chris Brown Issues an Apology

Holy Smokes!!!!

After waiting 5 months since the incident occurred, Chris Brown has finally made a statement with regards to the Rihanna incident. He is blaming his delay in commenting on his lawyers who wanted him to have the legal aspect over before he made any form of a statement.

My question is, how genuine is this statement, it's obviously rehearsed and repeated so does it come from his heart or is this his way of making sure he still has any semblance of a fan base going forward?

Many persons still feel he got a slap on the wrist with his community service and no real jail time, but do we honestly believe that Chris is regretful that his anger and temper got the best of him or is he more upset that his anger and temper were exposed???

I guess we will never know.

The video can be watched over at TMZ.COM.

Could "Oh Yea" be the Song of the Summer

Barbadian artists have been rolling in opportunities since Rihanna shed the spotlight on the country and this year another artist is hitting the scene.

Meet Jaicko, the 17 year old who has been signed to Capitol Records and is being compared to Chris Brown.

Already known in his home country, Jaicko has been busy recording his debut album since signing with Capitol.

Listen to his first single off that album and tell me what you think.

Ryan Seacrest = Highest Paid Reality Host

Forget scripted shows, the real money is clearly in reality shows. Ryan Seacrest just signed on to host Idol for another 3 seasons for a whopping $45 Million!!!

I'm sure he never expected that little show would make him sooo bankable...

Wonder if he has a sidekick...

Channing Tatum Breaks the hearts of many girls...

...namely me....

Channing Tatum, who has been engaged to his Step Up sweetheart, Jenna Dewan since last year married the dancer/actress in a short ceremony witnessed by 200 of their closest friends and family.

"The stars said "I do" in a short, 15-minute ceremony on the grounds of Church Estates Vineyards, the same venue where Fergie and Josh Duhamel got married last January.

More than 200 guests attended the nuptials, which began at 3:45 p.m. PST. A source tells Us Dewan's maid of honor was Entourage star Emmanuelle Chriqui. Also in the bridal party was Tatum's sister Paige and Haylie Duff, who was accompanied by the groom's pal Nick Zano. The bridesmaids all wore light pink dresses."

The pair met on the set of Step Up in 2006.

Fitting Farewell for the Incomparable MJ

Yesterday was all about Michael.

And that's the way it should have been. (not that slap dash tribute BET attempted). The Los Angeles Staples Centre brought together the biggest of stars to memorialize the King of Pop.

From Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie, to Brooke Shields and Usher, celebrities and fans alike paid tribute to their idol before he was taken to his final resting place, which from all reports remains unknown.

Perhaps the most touching part of the memorial was when his daughter, Paris Katherine Michael spoke and for me that was the breaking point.

She said Michael was "the best father you could ever imagine" and in my heart of hearts I honestly believe her.

After seeing the kids interaction with the rest of the Jackson family, I think it would be a travesty to take these kids from their family. After all this is the only family they have known and in my opinion, paternity and familial ties were never disputed when Michael was alive so why argue it now. These kids have lost the only parent they have ever known...staying with his family would be there way of being with him - they are old enough to know the difference.

Here are some pictures from the star studded event.
