The night began with tons of amazing performances.
Robin Thicke was joined on stage by T.I. and Team Usher‘s mentor Pharrell took the stage to perform their new collaboration “Blurred Lines.” Kris Thomas from Shakira‘s team and Vedo from Usher’s team also joined in!
However, the hottest performances of the night were from the coaches and their teams! Blake Shelton and his team performed the fitting song, “Play Something Country,” while Adam and his girls took on “Love Song.”
America’s Shocking Votes Sends 2 Home
This week, America had to vote for their faves, and the two with the least amount of votes were sent home.
Adam was super excited, to keep all three of his singers – Judith Hill, Sarah Simmons and Amber Carrington.
Team Blake also kept all his country sweethearts!
However, the newbies weren’t as lucky.
Usher’s Josiah Hawley made us all fall even more in love with him after revealing his love for The Mighty Ducks. Lucky for us, he made it through to the top ten, along with Michelle Chamuel. Unfortunately, Vedo was sent home.
Team Shakira’s Kris Thomas and Sasha Allen were also saved, meaning that Garret Gardner was heading home.

Selena, you are such a great friend for publicly stating that Miley is beautiful! Not only are you a wonderful friend, but you’re also an awesome role model for all women to celebrate each other’s beauty.
Selena Gomez, when you were asked about coming in as number two on Maxim‘s Hot 100 List behind Miley Cyrus, you responded in the classiest way possible by complimenting Miley’s beauty. It’s obvious that the question was purposely asked in hopes that you’d make a negative comment about Miley, but you gracefully responded, “She's beautiful.”
Miley Is Going Through A Rough Time
Recently, Miley has been having a tough time with all the ups and downs in her relationship with Liam Hemsworth. From spending more time apart to post-poning their wedding twice, the couple is obviously having some problems.
Miley is currently facing her own personal struggles, and your compliment to Miley is an amazing way to support her during this rough time. You’ve been a great friend to Miley, so I know she values your opinion and appreciates your kinds words about her. Boosting another woman’s self-confidence is one of the best things you can do for a friend.
Women Should Celebrate Each Other
Coming in at number two on Maxim‘s Hot 100 List is quite an honor, but you modestly said you didn’t understand the need for a list that ranks people based on appearance. You are an amazing role model for all women because you’re celebrating your friend’s beauty.
Women should love and support each other, and promote confidence in each other’s beauty, inside and out. That’s exactly what you’ve done for Miley, and you’ve shown other women that they need to do that for their friends too.
Not only are you a wonderful friend to Miley, you are an inspiration to all women to come together and support each other.

Surprisingly, Kim wasn’t concerned about her mom getting banned from the biggest fashion party of the year, and there’s a reason why. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the pregnant reality star was more concerned about getting her own invite to the Met Ball!
Kris Jenner received a major snub when she didn’t receive an invitation to attend the star-studded Met gala in New York City on May 6. This didn’t seem to bother her daughter, Kim Kardashian, because she was more preoccupied with getting her own invite with the help of her boyfriend, Kanye West.
Kim Only Cared About Her Own Invitation To The Met Ball
A friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Kim wasn’t concerned about her mom being invited to the Met Ball. She was concerned about herself getting invited and knew that Kanye had to pull major strings.”
The friend adds, “She knows that there is no way she would have been invited to the Met gala if it hadn’t been for Kanye.”
Kim Was The Only Reality Star Invited To The Met Ball
According to RadarOnline, Vogue‘s Anna Wintour did not want to invite any reality stars to the biggest fashion party of the year. The source says when Kris asked about attending the gala, Anna said, “One Kardashian is enough!” Ouch!
"Anna approves every star who enters and although she finally relented on Kim, she drew the line at Kris, who was desperate to attend,” added the insider. "Anna wants a parade of stars at the gala, not a parade of reality stars!"
Do You Think Kanye Should Have Helped Kris Get Invited?
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, should Kanye have asked Anna to invite Kim’s mother? Do you think Kim was being insensitive not to care? Do you think Kris will be invited next year?

From partying with Angels at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to flirting with models on Twitter, Justin has had some pretty sexy former flames. Justin may have a thing for supermodels, but Selena doesn’t let it bother her! Find out why she doesn’t Google Justin’s exes!
When Selena appeared on The TJ Show on May 10, the show’s host asked her if she’s ever taken a peek online at some of Justin’s model flings and compared them to herself. ”No, I think that would be torturous to myself,” the “Come & Get It” singer replied.
She added, “That's so not worth my energy.” Justin’s models may be pretty, but they have nothing on Selena’s stunning beauty!
Why Selena Said She Was Single After Justin Reunion
Selena felt like a booty call after she came back, and then Justin went back to his old games by ignoring her calls, etc. She did that interview to remind him that she's a precious princess and he needs to respect her. Is she trying to make him jealous? Hell yeah. She needs to feel wanted or she will cool things off again. If they didn't have the history they do, she would not be putting up with all of this.

Has Angelina’s brave revelation about her double mastectomy made you wonder if YOU are at risk of getting breast cancer? Here, top breast cancer experts explain what you need to know.
Angelina Jolie‘s courageous editorial in the New York Times about her decision to have a preventative double mastectomy has many women asking if they are also at risk of breast cancer. And asking themselves if they might be candidates for preventative mastectomies as well. Read on for the info you need.
Breast & Ovarian Cancer: The Scary Truth
Two hundred and thirty-two thousand women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. every year and sadly 40,000 still die. One in eight women in the U.S. will get breast cancer during their lives.
The good news is that more women are cured of breast cancer today than ever before, thanks to new treatments and preventative measures like the double mastectomy that Angelina elected to undergo.
However, as she pointed out in her editorial, only about five to ten percent of all breast cancers and one in seven cases of ovarian cancers, are caused by the “faulty” gene that Angelina inherited.
In fact, there are two faulty genes — BRCA1 (which Angelina has) and BRCA2, which can make you highly likely to get breast or ovarian cancer or both.
Both of these genes are tumor suppressors but when they are faulty, like the one that Angelina inherited, they don’t perform properly and therefore don’t suppress breast and ovarian cancer as they should, according to the National Cancer Institute.
That’s why Angelina said she had an 87 percent risk of developing breast cancer and a fifty per cent chance of developing ovarian cancer. If you are one of those women like Angelina, who carries a faulty gene, should you also get a double mastectomy? Here’s what you need to know, says the experts:
Do You Have A Faulty Breast/Ovarian Cancer Gene?
Jessica Heinzmann, a certified genetic counselor with the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center in New Jersey, tells HollywoodLife.com about the red flags for hereditary breast or ovarian cancer that you should look for:
Do you have female relatives who have had breast cancer?
Have any of these women contracted the disease at an early age, ie. under 50-years-old? Even if you have just one female relative who has contracted breast cancer at an early age, you could have inherited the faulty gene.
Have any of your female relatives had ovarian cancer?
Has any man in your family been diagnosed with breast cancer?
Is there a history of pancreatic cancer in your family?
Is your background Ashkenazi Jewish and you have female relatives who have had breast cancer?
If you have any of these red flags, it would make good sense to have a genetic test.
You can ask your doctor or gynecologist to arrange for you to be tested.
As for ovarian cancer, Jessica explains that it is harder to detect in preventative screenings, than breast cancer. It is also a more difficult cancer to treat successfully.
If you have one of the BRCA genes, the recommendation is to have your own ovaries and fallopian tubes removed between the ages of 35 and 40, or to have them removed when you have finished having children.
This will also reduce your risk of developing ovarian cancer to under five percent and Jessica guesses that Angelina will have this surgery too, since her mother died of ovarian cancer. “Our national guidelines from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, would advise her to do this,” she says.
If members of your family have already been tested for these genes, it should cost $475. If not, the cost could be $4,000 but there are programs you can access for financial assistance to cover the program.
FYI, both of Angelina’s biological daughters, Shiloh and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, will be candidates to be genetically tested for the BRCA1 gene when they are 18.
Will Insurance Cover The Cost Of Preventative Mastectomies & Reconstructive Surgery?
Yes, says Jessica. Most insurance companies will cover this cost.
If I don’t have the faulty gene, what’s my risk of having breast cancer?
One in eight women in the U.S. will be stricken with breast cancer at some point in their lives, and most do not have the faulty gene. But, there is good news!
Thanks to the efforts of organizations like The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, created by Evelyn Lauder, there are so many more excellent treatments for breast cancer.
“We want to put breast cancer out of the business,” explains Myra Biblowit, President of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The $440 million that has been raised by the foundation has been almost entirely spent on funding 197 researchers in thirteen countries, who are focused solely on treatments and cures for breast cancer. Ninety-one cents out of every dollar raised goes directly to research for treatments and cures.
“Doctors used to throw the same toxic cocktail at every woman with breast cancer. Now we know that treatments need to be personalized, and doctors use targeted therapies for every woman so they have a greater chance of curing their cancer or turning it into a manageable disease,” explains Myra.
Myra has great admiration for Angelina’s actions. “She will embolden women to be proactive if they have one of the BRCA genes. They can see that if she can do it, I can do it,” says Myra. “They can ask themselves if they would rather face breast cancer or face recovering from a surgery that has no risks. If they decide to have the preventative surgery ( at a time that is appropriate for them) they can remove this terror from hanging over their heads.”
So, HollywoodLifers – if you have any of the red flags for Angelina’s faulty gene, please discuss your situation with your doctor, and if you don’t, follow your doctor’s advice on breast self-examination and mammograms and know that breast cancer treatments are improving all the time, thanks to organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The famed porn star spoke out about his on-screen sex tape costar buying a pregnancy test — and he’s livid about the so-called ‘publicity stunt!’ Do YOU think James should be mad?
It appeared James Deen, 27 and former Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, 21, wanted nothing to do with each other after starring in Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom together, and later trading hateful jabs in the press. But the drama has come back to haunt James yet again after Farrah was spotted buying a pregnancy test at an LA drug store on May 7.
James Deen: Saying You’re Potentially Pregnant Is Not A Joke
James revealed to Celebuzz that Farrah picking up the test — which he called a “publicity stunt” — was way out of line.
"To say you're potentially pregnant is not something to joke about. When you knowingly involve another human being and a publicity stunt around that, a child is not something to be taken lightly,” he said to Celebuzz. “It's not a game anymore and it's really not cool.”
“This is a type of publicity I do not agree with and I do not want to participate in,” he added. “Joking or lying or using pregnancy to get attention and media is not cool. It involves three people’s lives including the potential unborn child. It is not a subject to just throw around.”
James Deen: Farrah Was On Birth Control For Our Porno
Farrah and James both got tested for STDs before their sex tape, and she even told HollywoodLife.com in a statement that she had used contraception before the sex tape. James says the adult film company also told him she was on the pill.
“I am more concerned about the fact that Vivid told me she was on birth control,” he says. “Had I known she was not taking preventive measures I would have never accepted the scene. When Vivid booked me for the scene I had two stipulations before I agreed – one, that she was tested in the exact same way as all the adult film stars and two, that she was on birth control," Deen said.
But he thinks the fame surrounding Farrah after her porn tape will die down — and in the mean time, he’s waiting for it to blow over.
“I keep trying to stay out of the drama and let it pass, but it just seems like it’s one thing after the next. I don’t like drama, I avoid it like the plague. I personally think it is more hype and in time it will disappear.”
Do YOU agree with James, HollyMoms? Do you think Farrah buying the test was a publicity stunt?

Bonnie Fuller, Charlotte Ronson, Leandra Medine and Elana Drell-Szyfer were the four lucky women honored by the UJA-Federation of New York's Professional Women's Philanthropy on May 7.

HollywoodLife.com was lucky enough to interview all four honorees at the event, and they revealed the key to building a successful career.
Bonnie Fuller’s Career Advice To Women
Bonnie changed the face of women’s magazines and shaped celebrity culture during her illustrious career. She was the launch editor of Marie Claire; she became editor of Cosmopolitan, where she raised newsstand sales 18 percent in her first year; and as editor-in-chief of Glamour, she lead the magazine to its highest-ever circulation and revenue levels.
At the UJA Event at Manhattan’s JW Marriott Essex House, Bonnie spoke about being honored by the UJA Federation:
The UJA Federation is a great organization for strong women. Strong women make up the organization and they want to honor other strong women. I hope we can inspire all the HollywoodLifers out there.
Bonnie firmly believes that determination and hard work is the key to career success:
Think big. You have to aim high and go for your dreams. If there is something you want to do, then you have to try.

Charlotte Ronson, Leandra Medine & Elana Szyfer Honored By The UJA Federation Of NYC

Silver faced her final — and most brutal — crisis on the show’s final episode. Worst ending ever?
It’s been less than 24 hours since 90210 aired its series finale, and while I’m tickled that Annie (Shenae Grimes) and Liam (Matt Lanter) finally got their heads out of their beautiful butts and became engaged, there’s one less-happy plot point in need of discussing: I can’t believe the show ended with Silver (Jessica Stroup) getting cancer!
No resolution, no silver lining. The girl just has cancer, and that’s it.
But then again, maybe it was the perfect way for Silver’s journey to end. I mean, hasn’t she been consistently dumped on from day one? I believe Silver might be the most unlucky character on television today, and like any good CW journalist, I gathered evidence.
So without further adieu, I present…
10 Reasons Why It Totally Sucks To Be Erin Silver
Reason #1: Silver’s crappy life actually starts on the original Beverly Hills, 90210. During a season four episode “Thicker Than Water,” her half-brother David falls asleep — this is during his meth/oxy-addiction period, mind you — and he loses her at the park.
Reason #2: Flash forward to high school — Silver eventually grows out of her awkward, anti-social phase… only to discover she’s, in fact, bipolar.
Reason #3: She finally reconnects with her estranged mother… who then dies of breast cancer.
Reason #4: Losing her mom is tough, but at least Silver has her sister to lean on, right? … Nope. Kelly suddenly disappears and is never heard from again.
Reason #5: Silver finds comfort in the arms of her loving boyfriend, Teddy. Oh, wait… he’s gay.
Reason #6: Her “best friend” Adrianna switches out her bipolar medication and tries to kill her.
Reason #7: Adrianna then sends a naked picture of Silver to everyone in school.
Reason #8: Thank God high school finally ends, so Silver can get a fresh start at college, right? … Nope. Silver does not get into college.
Reason #9: Flash forward a few years — Silver puts her only remaining embryo into a surrogate… and then the baby dies.
Reason #10: And then Silver finds out she has cancer.
