Wow. This week’s elimination was an emotional roller coaster for us. Even though we knew six acts were going to be eliminated, that didn’t soften the blow of some of our favorite acts going home. So, did your favorite(s) make the finals?
America’s Got Talent toyed with our feelings in the Sept. 4 eliminations. We’ve grown attached to some of these acts and seeing them on stage for the last time is almost too much to take. Fall Out Boy also performed their hit single “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).”
‘America’s Got Talent’ Sept. 4 Results
American Military Spouses Choir, singer Branden James, and acrobat Timber Brown were the first acts up for elimination. It was no surprise that Branden moved on to the finals. Have you heard him sing? Yeah, there was no doubt about it.
Chicago Boyz and the Kristef Brothers were up next. If one of these two acts is eliminated then we’ll just quit everything. Thankfully, BOTH are in the finals. Whew, our emotions are still in check.
Country crooners Marty Brown and Jimmy Rose. Even though we have a soft spot for Marty, we ultimately knew it would be Jimmy who stayed in the competition.
Next up were Illusionist Leon Etienne & Romy Low, comedian John Wing, and Kenichi Ebina. This was just cruel to Leon & Romy and John. Kenichi was obviously going on to the finals.
This is where we get emotional. The final acts up for elimination are singing extraordinaire Anna Christine and dancers D’Angelo & Amanda. Seriously, they are just kids! Putting them against each other is just wrong. Nevertheless, it was up to the judges to decide. Heidi Klum went with D’Angelo & Amanda and Mel B went with Anna Christine. This is getting intense. Howard Stern goes with Anna Christine. Okay, we’re getting somewhere. Howie Mandel believes this is Sophie’s Choice of America’s Got Talent and he’s right. Yet, he doesn’t make it easier by choosing D’Angelo & Amanda.
So, it’s back to the votes and America chooses…
D’Angelo & Amanda! Poor Anna Christine. She was really coming into her own and to watch her go breaks our hearts.
So HollywoodLifers, how do YOU feel after tonight’s eliminations? Let us know!

Things just got heated! Passionate fans of ’50 Shades of Grey’ are refusing to accept the casting decisions for Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. It’s gotten so serious, a petition to recast the roles is now making the rounds on the Internet.
After Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam were chosen to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the screen adaptation of E.L. James popular erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, fans were quick to voice their hatred for the casting choices. In fact, the Greysessed masses are so upset that they created a petition calling for close contenders Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel to take on the roles instead. Read on for all the details!
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Petition — Fans Want Alexis Bledel & Matt Bomer Cast
The petition on Change.org argues that Matt and Alexis are perfect for the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Here’s why:
Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE. And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.
It seems as though they’re making quite a case! The petition reached almost 38,000 signatures as of the evening of Sept. 4.
These all the same die-hard fans who, when the movie was first announced, went so far as to create fake trailers for the film by mashing up old clips of Alexis and Matt. Both stars were flattered by fans’ reactions and extremely interested in playing the parts of Christian and Ana. We can’t help but wonder if they’d still be up for it!
‘Fifty Shades’ Author & Producers Fight Back
Author E.L. James wasn’t thrilled about her readers’ strong reactions. Neither were producers Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca, who firmly stand by their casting decisions — which, by the way, are not up for negotiation.
“There is a lot that goes into casting that isn’t just looks,” Brunetti tweeted on Monday. “Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc, so if your favorite wasn’t cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. Keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective.”
He does have a point! And who knows? Maybe these two Hollywood newbies will surprise us! After all, there was a time when Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were nobodies too.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would YOU sign the petition for Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer, or are you happy with Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey? Sound off below!

The Style Awards host and designer looked so clean yet edgy at the 2013 Style Awards on Sept. 4. Just one question — how do we get those lashes?
Nicole Richie, 31, walked a clean line on the red carpet of the 2013 Style Awards in New York City — and we mean that literally. Her hair and makeup were both natural and sharp — we love it!
Nicole Richie’s Makeup & Hair At 2013 Style Awards — Get Her Lashes
The Style Awards host’s peepers were the focal point of her look, with her eyes standing out amidst feathery, dark lashes framing her face. To get the same effect, use LANCÔME DÉFINICILS High Definition Mascara in Extra Black for an added pop. The thin wand defines and coats each lash so well that you won’t even need eyeliner — which is precisely why Nicole didn’t need to use any. Curling the ends with an eyelash curler will help lashes look more feathery, though.
She topped her eye makeup off with glimmering gold eye cream, making them stand out even more. A pale pink gloss and peachy cheeks topped off her look.
Nicole also looked chic and clean with a severely cut and straightened bob, just grazing the top of her shoulders.
Nicole Richie Getting Ready For The Style Awards
On Sept. 4, Nicole posted a photo to her Instagram of her getting ready for the Style Awards. She wrote “Good morning New York. Lets get started! #styleawards”
We love the end result, Nicole!

Kim let her natural beauty — and her pregnant belly! — shine for photographer Karl Lagerfeld, particularlyin the above photo where she is shown wearing a puffy-sleeved jacket that exposes her swelling belly. Kim did something many women would feel uncomfortable doing by revealing her pregnant body for the world to see. How inspiring!
“I think the message is embrace your curves and who you are,” Kim once told Harper’s Bazaar about posing naked. “I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, 'I'm curvy, and I'm proud of it now.'"
Kim appears prouder than ever in these stunning pics! We have to hand it to her for being bold. We think she looks totally gorgeous in these photographs!
Kim Kardashian To Pose For ‘Playboy’
As much as Kim loved being pregnant, she’s also looking forward to getting her signature figure back. The reality star revealed that she wants to celebrate her post-pregnancy curves by getting behind the camera again — this time for a steamy Playboy shoot! Even before she had her daughter, North, Kim was thinking about how to celebrate her post-pregnancy curves. In a new teaser clip for an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim explains that she wants to do another nude photo shoot to show off her body after she gives birth.
"As soon as I pop this thing out, I want to do Playboy or some nude shoot,” a still-pregnant Kim revealed on a teaser promo clip for Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kim gave birth to her daughter North on June 15 and is already on her way to reclaiming her famous figure. In fact, she can’t wait to show off her post-baby body. Good for her!

At the Style Awards, put on by Penske Media Corporation (PMC), SWW Creative, and IMG Fashion, it was a night full of glitz and glamour.

Her sleek brown hair was half up in her signature high ponytail, with the bottoms curled, framing her face perfectly. She paired the dress with a red lip, which was a perfect way to add a sexier look to the floral dress.
