Four acts made their way to the semi-finals while eight others said goodbye to ‘America’s Got Talent’ for good on the Aug. 7 elimination episode. Did your favorite(s) make it through?
Even though we’ve already been through three rounds of this elimination process, America’s Got Talent continues to shock us every week. Eight acts were once again sent home and four acts moved on to the semi-finals in the Aug. 7 results show. To cushion the blow, we were treated to an amazing performance of Jason Derulo‘s “The Other Side.”
Say Sayonara To Eight More Acts
The first elimination round consisted of snake wrangler David “The Cobra Kid” Weathers, the Aerosphere Aerial Balloon Show and illusionists Leon Etienne&Romy Lowe. It was no surprise that all three acts were sent packing.
Next up was the American Military Spouses Choir, brother-sister duo Brandon & Savannah, and the dog act Kelsey & Bailey. While Kelsey’s dog dancing wasn’t exactly the best act, both singing groups in this round definitely deserved a spot in the semi-finals. Unfortunately, only one could go on… and America chose American Military Spouses Choir!
No Pain, No Gain On ‘America’s Got Talent’
The following group was by far the most intense round of the results show: fan favorite Jonathan Allen, impressionist Jim Meskimen, and dance extraordinaire Kenichi Ebina. This is a tough one. All three were great in their first live performance.
Kenichi quickly moved on to the semi-finals, which wasn’t a surprise after Howie Mandel told him he should win the top prize after his incredible performance Aug. 6. So, does this mean Jonathan and Jim went home? Not so fast. Nick Cannontold the the two men to wait because one more was going through to the round. Whew!
Between Jonathan and Jim, well, we already knew the answer. America went with Jonathan.
The last group featured the Mitsi Dancing School, Deanna DellaCioppa and the Chicago Boyz. Despite her wonderful performance of “I Want To Know What Love Is,” Deanna was cut.
It was down to Mitsi Dancing School and the Chicago Boyz — and it was up to the judges to decide. While they praised the Mitsi girls for their precision and skill, the judges all went with the Chicago Boyz. (Good choice, judges. Good choice.)
Oh, and the guy from Chicago Boyz who looked like he hurt himself in his first performance at Radio City Music Hall was rushed to the hospital soon after his fall. It turns out he broke his tibia in three different places and will be cheering on his team from the sidelines. We wish him a speedy recovery!

Lady Gaga has shown us time and time again how comfortable she is with her body — but this is the controversial superstar’s most revealing video yet! We’ve seen her side boob, we’ve seen her butt, and now we’ve really seen it all!
Lady Gaga spent three days at a retreat in upstate New York learning the Abramovic Method, “a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment.” And what better way to be self-aware than by getting totally nude? Lady Gaga tries out various poses and outfits — most notably her birthday suit — in this bizarre video she filmed to promote a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the Marina Abramovic Institute. Read on for more details!
Lady Gaga Naked In New ’Abramovic Method’ Video
Lady Gaga strips down to … well, absolutely nothing in this latest NSFW video. The “Born This Way” singer took a brief hiatus after undergoing hip surgery, but in true Gaga fashion, the eccentric singer is back doing what she does best — dropping jaws and dropping trou.
The video shows Mama Monster — sometimes in the buff, sometimes not — letting out a few excessively long, guttural notes while bending over in a forest; standing in a lake with two yellow spikes covering her eyes; and — our favorite — cuddling up to a giant crystal while totally naked.
We’re not sure exactly what the take-away is, but hey — we’re always game for more Gaga!
Lady Gaga Raises Funds For The Marina Abramovic Institute
The Kickstarter campaign has already raised more than $220,000 from over 1,000 backers — and we’re sure many more of Lady Gaga’s little monsters will contribute once they see this video.
Lady Gaga has long been a fan of performance artist Marina Abramovic, who collaborated with the fame monster on her upcoming album, ARTPOP.
“I’m obsessed with this woman,” Gaga says of Marina in a 2010 interview. “She is so incredible.”
So are you, Lady Gaga. So are you.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Lady Gaga’s new video? Is it artsy or just plain weird?

Lea Michele is helping the show’s writers address Finn’s death, and she’s hoping to reflect the truth behind Cory’s untimely passing. WE
Lea Michele has been so poised during this trying time for the Glee cast, crew and Gleeks worldwide. She is proving her strength once more by helping to pen a tribute episode to Cory Monteith, where his character Finn passes in a way that will feel real and emotional.
Lea Michele: ‘Glee’ Tribute To Cory Monteith Will Focus On Drug Abuse
Lea is obviously heartbroken, but she is strong and brave enough to take her grief and turn it into something extremely positive. After Cory’s July 13 overdose, Lea has made sure to be very closely tied into the show’s handling of Finn’a death.
“Lea wants it to reflect the truth, to warn people what can happen,” Us Weekly reports.
It’s an amazing idea. Hopefully Glee fans who are dealing with substance abuse can get the help they need by seeing it portrayed in such a real manner on the show.
Lea Michele Is A Major Contributor To Cory Monteith's Tribute Episode
HollywoodLife.com also spoke EXCLUSIVELY with sources close to the set that said, "The producers are still going back and forth on what they want to do and clearing music for his tribute. But most of all, Glee's creative team is looking to Lea to give the final word on decisions that are being made for this season's third episode, which will be an emotional tribute to Cory. The meetings are lengthy and Lea is a part of them to make sure everything is just right.”
We think Lea will be an amazing source of inspiration for the show, and we applaud her turning tragedy into an opportunity to educate others. We are eagerly awaiting the October 10 episode to see how it all turns out.

Poor Khloe Kardashian: yet ANOTHER woman has claimed she had an affair with Lamar Odom! But HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that not only does Lamar refuse to cheat on his wife, but women only make up allegations because he’s such an easy target!
Lamar Odom Rumors: Not Cheating On Khloe Kardashian, Despite Rumors
Lamar, 33, would never cheat on Khloe, 29, and has remained a faithful and loving husband, a source close to him tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Lamar isn’t cheating,” says a source close to him. “He doesn’t have time to do that. I don’t doubt for a second that girls are after him, throwing themselves at him. But come on now, it’s Lamar. Everybody knows who he is and he wouldn’t put himself out there like that. Khloe is the love of his life and he wouldn’t do that to her. She gives him everything he wants and needs.
“These women see Lamar as an easy target,” the source continues. “He’s in the news because he’s in the NBA, and unfortunately a lot of those basketball stars cheat on the regular. But NOT Lamar. Plus, he’s married to a Kardashian.”
Lamar Odom’s Alleged Six-Week Affair
The newest allegation comes from Star, which reports that a woman named Polina Polonsky revealed a six-week rendezvous with Lamar. She also claims that she passed a polygraph test when asked on the issue.
Polina even tells the magazine that Khloe showed up to the room she was sharing with Lamar at the Vagabond Inn on July 13. Polina alleges that Khloe “investigated my loved ones, and she personally tried to attack me. I can't even go home, because I'm scared that something bad will happen. I want my story to be made public."
Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers: do YOU think that Lamar is remaining faithful to Khloe?
Much to the dismay of ladies (and lady-wolves) everywhere, ‘Teen Wolf’ hunk Tyler is off the market — and HollywoodLife.com has all the details about his romantic proposal to longtime love Seana Gorlick. Prepare to swoon!
So sweet! Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey asked his soulmate Seana Gorlick to marry him while on a romantic twelve-day getaway to Hawaii. Even though Tyler, 21, and Seana have been together since Tyler was 11, he was still super nervous to pop the question. Aww! Read on for all the dreamy details!
Tyler Posey’s Proposal To Seana Gorlick — How ‘Teen Wolf’ Star Popped The Q
Tyler sure picked an amazing way to celebrate he and Seana’s 10-year anniversary! The actor opened up to HollywoodLife.com about how he asked for his lady love’s hand in marriage:
We went to Hawaii for twelve days, and we'd never been there before. I had the ring on me, but I didn't know if I was going to do it — I didn't have a plan or anything. It was the first night there, we were just hanging out before dinner talking for like an hour, just like, she's my best friend. And I had it hidden in this drawer and I pulled it out one time, and I was so damn nervous I couldn't even smell anything. And I just asked her, and it was the coolest thing in the world. Her reactions was the sweetest — I can't even explain it. It was the best thing in the world!
Well, Tyler we think your reaction to being engaged is the sweetest! It sounds like Tyler and Seana are both very down-to-earth and chill, so his simple, sweet and spontaneous proposal was probably exactly what Seana wanted! What girl could say no?
Tyler Posey: Being Engaged Is ‘Everything I Wanted It To Be’
Tyler is so over the moon about being engaged to Seana — in fact, we haven’t seen anyone this excited since Tom Cruise jumped (the couch) for joy about Katie Holmes on Oprah in 2005. But unlike Tomcat, we think Tyler and Seana’s relationship will definitely stand the test of time. So how does he feel about being engaged to the love of his life?
Dude! It's everything I wanted it to be — I finally feel like myself. I've been wanting to ask her to marry me for years now and I finally did it. And now that I've done it, whenever I get that moment again, I ask her. It's really cool. So honestly I love it, I love going through the motions with her and being engaged.
Tyler and Seana seem like a match made in heaven, and he is not shy about telling the world how much he loves her.
“I'm so inspired by her — I think she's absolutely the coolest, raddest person ever,” he says. “She's so nice, she's so cute, she likes to keep a quiet life like I do, we like everything the same.”
Tyler is such a romantic, and we are so happy for him and Seana. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Female fans are already lining up for a chance to winJuan Pablo Galavis‘ heart – but apparently the latest Bachelor already has a leading lady — his four-year-old daughter, Camila!
Juan Pablo Galavis’ Daughter Has An ‘Amazing’ Father, Cousin Says
Former professional soccer player Juan Pablo is an “amazing” father, his cousin, Rodolfo El Chamo, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“Camila is the love of his life,” he gushed.
Juan Pablo, who will be the third single parent to star on the show, after Jason Mesnick and Emily Maynard, is so devoted to his daughter that he decided to stop playing soccer so he could spend time with her after she was born in February 2009.
Juan Pablo Galavis’s Daughter Will Appear On ‘The Bachelor’
Juan Pablo, who was announced as the latest bachelor on the Aug. 5 finale of The Bachelorette, definitely wants his daughter to have a say in his love life.
“Juan Pablo would never pursue a serious relationship—much less ask for someone’s hand in marriage—without his daughter being completely OK with it,” a source tells E! News.
“For the most part, [Camila's] mother will be taking care of her while Juan Pablo is shooting,” adds the source. “But she will definitely appear on the show. He’s going to make sure to see her as often as he can and include her in the process—very much like what Emily Maynard did with her daughter when she was the bachelorette.”
How sweet! It’s great to know that Juan Pablo has a close, special relationship with his daughter — and Bachelor contestants will no doubt be thrilled to hear that, too. Marrying a man who will be a good father is very important to most women, and Juan Pablo definitely checks out there!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Does Juan Pablo being an amazing father make him even more appealing?
The Jonas Brothers singer and Miss Universe 2012 were spotted holding hands after dining together at Ovest Pizzoteca in New York City on August 1 — but are the two officially dating? Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details!
Nick Jonas is no stranger to dating beautiful women, and now he may be dating the most beautiful woman in the UNIVERSE: Olivia Culpo! An eyewitness says the couple looked “really happy” together on their date, but apparently they’re not official — yet — a source close to the couple tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Olivia Culpo & Nick Jonas Dating? — Are The Rumors True?
Sparks flew when Nick, 20, and Olivia, 21, met backstage at the 2013 Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas on June 16. Nick was a performer and co-presenter at the contest, and Olivia was there to announce the Miss USA contestant. It seemed like the stars aligned to bring these two young hotties together, but our source tells us, “They are not officially dating — not at all.”
“I’d be surprised if this worked out,” the source adds. “I just don’t see it working out — she just turned 21! She’s had nice dinners with other celebs, and the celeb thing just never works out.”
Before arriving for their date at Ovest Pizzotecha, Nick and Olivia were spotted leaving his apartment together.
“They were holding hands and there were fans standing outside,” a source tells E! News. “As soon as they saw the fans, they stopped holding hands.”
It sounds like Nick and Olivia really aren’t ready to commit, but there still could be something there.
Miss Universe: 'I'm Still Just Olivia!'
Olivia has reportedly been pursued by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane,Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and other celebs since receiving her title, but she wants her suitors to know she’s more than just a pretty face.
I think that when people see me they don’t see Miss Universe at first, and then there’s always that awkward moment when they find out, and you have to think, ‘This is a little uncomfortable.’ I don’t know if they like me or they just think it’s cool so they can tell their friends that they're talking to Miss Universe. But to me I'm still just Olivia, which I'm going to continue thinking that, instead of the title!
Well, the good thing about going out with Nick is that he already has his own claim to fame, so if he really does like Olivia, at least she’ll know it’s for the right reasons!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Nick and Olivia go on another date?

Khloe definitely wants a little one of her own — and HollywoodLife.com learns EXCLUSIVELY that Khloe is carefully considering the happiness of her sisters when thinking baby-planning.
Khloe Kardashianis surrounded by happy baby news — and is patiently waiting for her own with husband Lamar Odom. With her sister Kim Kardashian enjoying special moments with her newborn North, and oldest sister Kourtney Kardashian happily growing her own family, Khloe definitely has babies on the brain! A source close to the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Khloe is wishing for a baby now “more than ever.”
Khloe Kardashian Wants Baby With Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian is surrounded with her sisters’ kids right now, and it reminds her of her own baby dreams. A source close to the Kardashians tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that while “Khloe would never admit to” wanting kids of her own now more than ever, “she does want a family with Lamar.”
“She’s never going to come out and say that she wants a baby more than ever now that Kim has a baby girl,” our source explains. “That’s something she will take to her grave. But people in the family know that’s an issue and something I know that’s close to heart.”
Khloe Kardashian Won’t Take Away From Her Sisters’ Happiness With Her Own Baby
Our source adds that Khloe is “Of course, no doubt,” happy for her sisters’ happiness. It definitely would not be taking away from her sisters’ joy if she added another baby to the mix!
HollywoodLife.com learns EXCLUSIVELY from a source close to the family that Khloe is “in a weird spot,”:
Kim has a baby and is living her life with Kanye and they’re happy. Kourt and Scott are doing there thing. Man, if Kylie and Kendall start a family before Khloe that would really kill her. She’s happy for Kim and loves North and doesn’t want to take anything away from their joy and happiness. She’s infatuated with her whole family and would do anything to make sure all of them are happy — even at her own expense. She just wishes in her heart she could have her own family.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Khloe is right to consider her family’s feelings about her baby?
Lea is still finding it hard to sleep following the tragic death of her beloved boyfriend Cory. When she does sleep, she sees him in her dreams, HollywoodLife.com can exclusively reveal.
Lea Michele is still in a “dark” place following the death of her boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith, but she feels like he is still with her “all the time.” Lea, 26, is putting on a brave face at work during the day, but at night she struggles to deal with the quietness, a source close to the actress exclusively told HollywoodLife.com.
Lea Michele Dreams Of Cory Monteith After His Death
Lea was inconsolable when Cory, 31, suddenly died on July 13, and HollywoodLife.com previously reported that she was having trouble sleeping, even though she was spending so much time in bed. Now, she is dreaming about the late love of her life.
A source close to the star says:
Lea is moving forward. It’s still an extremely dark time for her but she’s incredibly strong and is clinging to the light. Her faith in God is helping her immensely. She has been dreaming of Cory a lot, and she says she feels him with her all the time. Lea has been praying for guidance and help to get through this, and she’s making major progress but it’s still a struggle — especially the nights.
Poor Lea. She is so brave and so strong, and it is not surprising that she feels Cory is always with her. Lea wears his necklace every day, and they had such a strong love.
The daytime is much easier for her because she can keep busy and not focus on her pain, but when night comes and things are quiet that’s the hardest time. That’s when she really counts on her prayers and her faith in God to help her. And her friends and family have been there a 110 percent for her. Lea hasn’t spent a night alone yet; she’s still not ready for that and who knows when she will be.
Lea is right to surround herself with friends and family following Cory’s death, and so far, she is doing so well with the grieving process. She is truly an inspiration.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do YOU think it’s sad or sweet that Lea dreams of Cory? Or both?
