Yes! We finally made it to Radio City Music Hall! The best of the best performed amazing acts on the July 23 episode and got the first live show off to a great start.
America’s Got Talent found its way home to Radio City Music Hall on the July 23 (live!) episode. The competition is getting more intense, as it’s now up to viewers to vote for their favorites via phone, online or Twitter. HollywoodLife.com rounded up our top five performances — and who we think should move on to the next round!
Top 5 Performances From July 23
5. Alexanderia the Great
This mom blew our minds with her death-defying stunts! For her first performance in Radio City Music Hall, Alexanderia was wrapped in 25 feet of chain, in a straitjacket, and locked underwater. What?! She had us on the edge of our seats as she finagled herself out of this stunt. Howie Mandel called the act “thrilling” and Howard Stern praised her by saying her hero Houdini would be proud.
This adorable dance crew, based out of Hawaii, is a refreshing treat from all the wild acts and emotional singers we frequently see on America’s Got Talent. Their new number was a fun, movie-themed performance to Frank Sinatra’s “I Won’t Dance.” Sinatra may not want to dance, but this trio sure can! The boys are just fun to watch. Even though the judges weren’t too keen on their performance, we loved it!
3. Kristef Brothers
Who knew a strength act would have so much glitter involved? The Kristef Brothers once again wowed us with their acrobatic wonder. Only this time, there was lots and lots of glitter thrown around! The guys added a little bit of humor with their outrageous girly costumes, but it didn’t take away from their insane balancing act. Howie was amazed and called it the “best act of the night.” Let’s put it this way: At one point, one of the Brothers was balancing himself with one hand — on the other’s head! It was crazy!
2. Collins Key
We seriously cannot get enough of this adorable magician. We keep wondering how he will top his last trick and he continues to stun us every week. This week, the judges had to tweet out answers to questions he asked, and then Collins retrieved a paper from a box where it was revealed he accurately predicted the judges’ answers! Howie got it right when he said, “Collins, you continue to dazzle us and are the new face of magic.” Howard loved him, too, but told him to stop crying so much. Mel B said, “Not only are you amazing but you’re a nice guy.” She also said the ladies think he is “hot.” That is one very accurate statement, Mel B.
1. Brendan James
Seriously, anytime the Josh Groban song “You Raise Me Up” comes on, who doesn’t cry? And Brendan completely stunned us with his rendition of the song. He received a standing ovation from Howie, Heid Klumi, Mel B and the entire audience — and rightly so. We agree with Mel B and Howard that Brendan has “such grace when he sings” and “takes command of the stage like a pro.” Brendan, we applaud your emotional performance tonight and we just know you’ll make it far in the competition. Radio City Music Hall is the perfect place for you!

The actress and singer turns 44 today, July 24. Happy birthday, Jennifer!
Jennifer Lopez, you may be one year older, but you’re still just as flawless as ever! The actress and singer had quite the year and we have pictures to chronicle her fantastic 43rd year — from new music to becoming executive producer of a new show!
Jennifer Looks Sexier Than Ever
The singer looked positively amazing at the 2013 Premios Juventud Awards on July 18. Jennifer donned three drop dead gorgeous outfits, including a very sexy jumpsuit. She and fellow singer Pitbull performed three epic party anthems. JLo proves she still has some serious star power on stage and we love it!
Jennifer Gets A Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame
On June 20, Jennifer received the 2,500th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She was accompanied by her boyfriend Casper Smart and two children Emme and Maximilian. After more than 20 years in television, film, and music, Jennifer was more than due for a star.
Jennifer Becomes Executive Producer Of A New Show
Jennifer is currently serving as executive producer on the ABC Family show The Fosters, which chronicles the lives of a diverse set of foster children being raised under one roof. We applaud Jennifer’s work on this groundbreaking series, especially since foster care is an issue that is often overlooked.
“I think in every time we have to kind of push that envelope and really be a reflection of what’s going on in society and… this show does that and in a smart, edgy, funny, heartfelt way,” Lopez told Huffington Post.
Jennifer Begins Working On A New Album
The “Jenny from the Block” singer has currently been working on her eighth studio album. She released “Live It Up” on May 8, which featured Pitbull and the song serves as the lead single to her new album. The album is set to be released in November 2013.
Have a great birthday, Jennifer!
HollywoodLifers, what was your favorite Jennifer Lopez moment from the past year? Are you excited for her upcoming album?

With that kind of response, it’s no wonder Miley is having a hard time reaching Liam.
Miley Cyrus’ Relationship With Liam Hemsworth — He’s Being Unresponsive
Miley clearly feels her relationship with Liam is worth saving, but it seems like he’s not willing to put in the time and energy it takes to make a relationship work.
“Miley’s very committed to Liam and to making it work, but she has complained that she feels like it’s always her making the effort to keep them afloat,” the source reveals. “Notice how it’s always Miley visiting Liam wherever he’s working and not the other way around. Miley would love it if Liam would make the effort to fly out and surprise her or something romantic like that but she’s not going to fight over it.”
Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth Go To Couple’s Therapy
“Miley is a big believer in couple’s therapy,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She and Liam did it and it helped them, but they still have issues.”
“The time apart is taking a huge toll but what can they do?” the source says. “Their careers are both exploding right now and neither one of them want to give that up. Liam won’t and Miley sure as hell won’t either.”
Miley and Liam seem like they really do love each other and they are just going through a rough patch, which happens to every couple.
“At the end of the day she loves him and she knows he loves her,” the source says. “They’re just in a very difficult situation.”
We hope they find a way to make it work! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Will Miley and Liam be able to save their relationship?

His Royal Highness The Prince Is Born: Makes Public Debut At St. Mary’s Hospital
His Royal Highness the Prince was born on July 22 at 4:24 p.m. local time in the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London. He made his first public appearance outside on the steps of the same hospital on July 23 just after 7 p.m. local time.
Mother Kate Middleton went into labor early that morning and was driven to the hospital by husband Prince William before 6 a.m. local time — without a police escort. When the young family left the hospital, it was once again Prince William behind the wheel — he packed up the baby in a car seat and drove his wife and newborn home to Kensington Palace.
The Great Royal Baby Countdown
After reporters, news crews, and baby-watchers spent upwards of three weeks camped outside of St. Mary’s, waiting for news of the baby’s arrival. Even Prince William acknowledged the Great Kate Wait!:
I’ll remind him of his tardiness when he’s a bit older. I know how long you’ve all been sat out here, hopefully the hospital and you guys can all get back to normal now and we can look after him.
His candid remarks and the little prince’s smiling face made the wait worth it!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited for the new parents?
The men of Rosewood took matters into their own well-moisturized hands this week — but were they successful?
Apparently it was ‘accuse of everybody of stuff they probably didn’t do’ week on Pretty Little Liars, as Ashley (Laura Leighton) remained in prison on suspicion of Wilden’s murder — orange is so not the new black, unfortunately — and Mike (Cody Christian) essentially took the blame for going all Michael Jackson on that kid’s car. Fortunately, Ezra (Ian Harding) was able to come to one of their rescues! Spoiler alert: It wasn’t Ashley.
In his most casual t-shirt and flannel button-down, Ezra stood up to the fat school principal — I don’t know his name, Principal Fatty? — and got Mike off the hook. Mike celebrated by getting dinner at Sausage King, which I’m pretty sure was a reference to The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Remember that show? God, that ended terribly.
Aria (Lucy Hale) paid Fitzy a little visit to thank him, but just when you thought they were going to kiss and make up… they didn’t. I think Aria and Ezra needed some time apart, but now that time has passed and Jake (Ryan Guzman) is basically out of the picture, I’m ready to see them bumping uglies again. Just don’t tell the cops, though; it’s still illegal for them to do pretty much anything other than shake hands.
Toby & Caleb(‘s Hair) Play Detective
Meanwhile, Caleb (Tyler Blackburn) and Toby (Keegan Allen) teamed up to form the world’s handsomest super-duo — sorry, Batman and Robin — and track down Red Coat. Their handsome travels took them to a teeny tiny airport, where they nearly came to fisticuffs with an also-handsome airport employee who appeared to know more than he was letting on.
Upon a second visit, #Caloby discovered that the handsome airport employee had faked a flight report for CeCe Drake (Vanessa Ray), which led them to handsomely deduce that she may have started the fire! And killed Wilden!
Such a busy girl, that CeCe.
I can’t even make sense of so much else that happened this week, so let’s just do a little rundown:
2. Someone, presumably “A,” crashed a car into Emily’s (Shay Mitchell) living room.
3. That handsome gentlemen from the tiny airport was talking to a mysterious sunglass’d lady. Was it CeCe? Jenna? Victoria Beckham? Who knows.
HollywoodLifers, do you think CeCe started the fire? Did Mike bash in that kid’s car? Will Aria and Ezra ever get back together? And when will these girls ever find time to do their homework? Drop a comment with your latest theories!
Rob was spotted on a flight from Toronto to Los Angeles on July 23. Is he going to see Kristen? Read on for more details!
Robert Pattinson has been hard at work filming scenes for Maps To The Stars in Toronto, Canada, but he must be on a break because a fan spotted him on a plane to Los Angeles!
Robert Pattinson Flying To LA — Is Rob Visiting Kristen Stewart?
R-Patz is going back to Cali! The Twilight heartthrob hopped a flight from Toronto to L.A. on July 23, and a fan snapped photos of him boarding the plane and hanging out in the airport lounge. Rob looked first-class hot in jeans, a T-shirt, shades and his signature beanie. Whoever got to sit next to him on the flight sure was lucky!
Rob’s latest fling,Riley Keough, also lives in L.A., so he could be going to visit her too. Rob and Riley, 24, have been quietly dating since June, but Rob still considers himself single. A source close to the actor tells us:
Rob will probably be seen with other girls along with Riley. He generally considers himself both single to his friends and exclusive when he is with Riley. He wants his cake and eat it to kind of thing. It's getting very physical between him and Riley, but he still isn't ready to pull the trigger on a full relationship as he will be away filming soon and he doesn't want to ruin something that is blossoming by leaving. He is aware that something still might happen, but he is being cautious. But with a strongly physical relationship that is happening, he knows that can always lead to more, so his mind is everywhere.
It sounds like Rob is not going to commit to Riley any time soon. Maybe he’s not over Kristen and that’s what’s holding him back. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did Rob got to L.A. to visit Kristen?
Jimmy Fallon’s Baby Born — ‘Late Night’ Host Is A Dad!
Jimmy and his wife, Nancy Juvonen Fallon, welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday, July 23 at 6:21 a.m.
The new parents are "overjoyed about the arrival of their beautiful daughter," Jimmy’s rep told People magazine.
Jimmy, 38, and Nancy, 46, were married in December 2007 and this is their first child. We were so surprised by this news because we didn’t even know the couple was expecting!
Jimmy Fallon Will Be A Great Dad
Jimmy’s wife, Nancy, a producer, runs Flower Films with her friend Drew Barrymore. Maybe Drew will be the baby’s godmother! The Fallons also have a dog named Gary Frick, who frequently appears on Jimmy’s show. It’s just one big happy family for Jimmy now.
We wonder if Jimmy’s new baby girl will grow up to be just as funny as her dad. Maybe she will even make a late night appearance on his show sometime! Either way, we’re sure Jimmy will be a wonderful father.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Jimmy be a good dad?

Rob, you are only 27 years old and are in the prime of your life. For the first time in four years, you are a free man and don’t have to worry about Kristen Stewart, so you should flirt with, kiss and date as many women as you want!
Robert Pattinson, take my advice and play the field! Ever since news came out in early July that you were dating actress Riley Keough, it was clear that you were serious about your 2nd split from Kristen Stewart. There would be no going back and taking her back , like you did after her cheating incident with Rupert Sanders. Then you were spotted kissing a mystery brunette on July 22, so it appears that you’re ready to go one step further and just have some fun. Well Rob, I say, go for it! You just got out of a very serious relationship, so it’s time to sow your wild oats.
Robert Pattinson — You Are Young, Single & Hot
Rob, you’re just 27 and at the height of your career. Between filming Maps To The Stars now, and the upcoming release of The Rover, you are a hot Hollywood commodity. You have firmly said goodbye to The Twilight Saga and you are exercising your acting chops by taking on more serious roles, so why shouldn’t you shake up your personal life as well!
We can see that you are really enjoying filming in Toronto, Canada. By bonding with your co-star MiaWasikowska and her boyfriend Jesse Eisenberg, bymaking new friends on set, and by kissing a sexy brunette after a cast dinner, it’s clear that you’ve really come out of your sometimes shy shell. You look so happy!
This is absolutely the right break up attitude, Rob! You’re not sitting around being miserable; this is the right time to kiss as many girls as possible, before you settle down with someone else.
Rob: It’s Too Soon To Get Serious With Riley Keough
Rob will probably be seen with other girls along with Riley. He generally considers himself both single to his friends and exclusive when he is with Riley. It's getting very physical between he and Riley, but he still isn't ready to pull the trigger on a full relationship, as he will be away filming soon and he doesn't want to ruin something that is blossoming by leaving. He is aware that something still might happen, but he is being cautious. But with a strongly physical relationship that is happening, he knows that can always lead to more, so his mind is everywhere.
Rob, it’s very thoughtful of you to not want to hurt Riley, when you know you aren’t ready to commit again. And Riley needs to understand that you just ended a romance of four years in May after a very intense personal and professional relationship. It’s way too soon for you to get serious with any girl.
You need to enjoy being single for once, Rob! There are plenty more fish in the sea, and there are millions of girls – literally-who would love to date you. You should enjoy at least a few months of being footloose and fancy free, even though you like being close and emotionally involved with the right woman. You are not a man who likes the life of one night stands. You grew up in a close family with parents who have been in a happy and very longterm marriage. Nevertheless, a relationship breather is a good idea so you can process what went wrong in your romance with Kristen and give thought to what’s important to you and what you need in a new relationship before becoming committed again.
Rob: You’ve Had A Difficult Year Emotionally
It was only 12 months ago that your whole world came crashing down in an instant, when Kristen’s affair with Rupert Sanders was revealed. You were totally blindsided – barely finding out about her straying and about the photographic evidence – before the public saw it on the cover of a magazine. You were so deeply in love with Kristen – you had never imagined that she would cheat on you. And to have it be exposed totally publicly was embarrassing and humiliating. You suffered months of pain until you and Kristen got back together around Halloween, only to break up TWO more times.
You’ve had enough heartache. We know you never recovered from the pain of Kristen’s betrayal, and that ultimately led to your final split. You still need to recover from that so when you do choose to enter another relationship, you will be ready to open your heart fully and trust again.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rob should date lots of girls? Or are you still holding out hope that he and Kristen will, once again, reunite? Cast your vote below, then drop a comment with more of your thoughts on Rob's new love life.
Although a new report suggests the photo above is the cover art for Chris' new single, 'Somebody Else Remix,’ a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the art is FAKE! Keep reading for more details!
Chris Brown Cover Art: Is Rihanna On ‘Somebody Else Remix’ Cover? — The Truth
We told you the photo above, posted by MediaTakeOut on July 23, might be the cover art for Chris’ new single, but a source close to the “Fine China” singer say it’s just a rumor.
“It’s fake,” the source reveals.
The image is of Chris, 24 and Rihanna, 25, with HUGE “X” over their faces. The photo, taken during the couple’s romantic getaway to Hawaii for RiRi's birthday, was originally posted on Instagram by Rihanna in February.
Chris Brown Is Enjoying The “Single” Life
On the track, Chris, 24, coos, "I never saw the day coming / That you would ever wanna leave me / Baby, you told me no matter what / Your heart would always be for me."
It certainly sounds like someone broke Chris' heart, but the singer opened up to HollywoodLife.com recently about his infamous love triangle with Rihanna and ex Karrueche Tran, saying he’s enjoying the single life.
“[Fans have] seen me on and off again with different girls, you know who they are, but right now, as a 24-year-old man, I just choose to be single!”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Has Chris moved on from Rihanna?

Kate looked radiant after leaving St. Mary’s hospital on July 23, but she definitely showed signs that she had just given birth! While revealing the royal baby on July 23, she revealed something else — a post-baby bump!
Like any other mom, Kate showed that she still has the baby bump she so elegantly sported for nine months before giving birth on July 22, and we thought it was so cute.
Having a post-baby bump makes Kate more relatable to all of the non-royal moms and moms-to-be in the world, and we love that she didn’t try to hide it when stepping out of the hospital for the first time. She proudly showed her belly to the world, and proved that she was proud of carrying her son for nine months!
Kate Middleton & Prince William Head Home From The Hospital
Just one day after Kate gave birth to her little prince on July 22, she and William headed home from St. Mary’s Hospital after revealing the baby on July 23.
While Kate came off as a refreshingly normal new mom by revealing her post-baby bump, William also did something refreshingly normal as a new dad and packed up his son in a carseat — and drove the whole family home from the hospital!
Scandal strikes again for Anthony. The New York City mayoral candidate was forced to admit he sent a woman sexual messages and lewd photos one year after he resigned following a previous sexting scandal.
Anthony Weiner, who shocked the world in 2011 after he was caught sexting with another woman, is back in the public’s bad graces after an unidentified woman came forward on July 23 to claim she had a virtual affair with the former Congressman from July 2012 to November 2012. Anthony confirmed the chats and photos she revealed were real in a statement released by his campaign on July 23. Read on for all the details.
Anthony Weiner Sexting Again — New Scandal, Featuring Carlos Danger
Anthony, who was forced to resign from Congress in June 2011 due to a sexting scandal, had been leading the polls in the race for mayor of New York City. His campaign was centered around the idea that he was a changed man, but it looks like that was all an act.
Although Anthony previously said he had other relationships that hadn’t yet been revealed at the time of his resignation, this alleged affair happened well after that. The 22-year-old woman, who claims she spoke to Anthony as recently as April 2013, says she frequently talked to Anthony online and they had phone sex daily.
The woman sent screenshots of conversations she had with Anthony to gossip site The Dirty, which published the chats and photos.
In the chats, a man believed to be Weiner was using the screen name Carlos Danger or Dangr33 to talk about his sexual fantasies with the unnamed woman.
Will Anthony Weiner’s Wife Stand By Him Through Another Sexting Scandal?
Anthony’s wife, Huma Abedin, stood by him through the last scandal. Huma, a close aid to Hilary Clinton, was revealed to be pregnant with the couple’s first child in the midst of the 2011 scandal. We can’t imagine how she must feel after this news.
Anthony released the following statement on July 23:
“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” he said. “As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress.”
“While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I’ve apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness.”
It’s hard to believe Anthony let this happen again. It seems like he has a real problem. Why would Huma give him yet another chance? What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Huma stick by his side through this new scandal?
Kate Middleton looked absolutely glowing when she emerged on the steps of the Lindo Wing with her brand new baby boy! We’ve found out how Kate gets her princess perfect skin. Keep reading to get a glow like Kate’s.
Kate Middleton, 31, and Prince William, 31, proudly shared their little prince with the world on July 23 in London at St. Mary’s Hospital, just one day after Kate gave birth to the new Prince of Cambridge. While all eyes were obviously focused on the newest addition to the royal family, we couldn’t help but notice how amazing Kate looked. Granted, her glow probably has something to do with how ecstatically happy she is, but we also think it might have something to do one of Kate’s favorite skincare ingredients.
Kate Middleton: Bee Venom Is One Of New Mom’s Beauty Secrets
Sure, we can’t all marry Prince William and become a Duchess and then give birth to an absolutely adorable royal baby — but hey, we can at least try to get skin like Kate’s!
As it turns out, Kate is a huge fan of using bee venom on her face. Yes, you read that correctly — bee venom. Now, we don’t recommend traipsing into your backyard and poking at the nearest beehive you find, mostly because it’s super easy to find skin care products that utilize the anti-bacterial properties found in bee venom.
To get skin like Kate’s, try the Manuka Doctor ApiClear line. We love the Foaming Facial Cleanser and Facial Moisturizing Lotion. The ApiClear line uses the bee venom to clean out our pores effectively, and the soothing properties of Manuka honey to gently repair and protect our skin. When we use it, we swear our skin gets a glow that rivals Kate’s!
So tell us what you think, HollywoodLifers? Do YOU want to get Kate’s glow? Tell us below!
