On The Voice Season 7 Episode 3, more aspiring singers left their hearts on the stage as they vied for spots on one of the four celebrity coaches’ rosters.

The Blind Auditions continued (as we were reminded constantly on screen with the random #BlindsContinue Twitter hashtag) on Monday, with a twist:

One of the contestants was actually blind!

Blessing Offor - Just the Two of Us (The Voice Audition)

Blessing Offor was a bit uneven through the first two-thirds of “Just the Two of Us,” but his charisma and raw talent got all four chairs to turn.

He was a Blessing to watch on TV, with his positivity as well as his take on the classic song, but he has work to do when he joins Team Pharrell.

Meanwhile Jessie Pitts’ rendition of “The Story” earned a spot on Team Gwen, although like Blessing, it’s unclear if this is flash in the pan or next level talent.

Ricky Manning, who sang “Love Me Again,” joins Blessing on Team Pharrell, which is quickly becoming the Island of Misfit Toys of aspiring vocalists.

Can he craft them into a winning roster? Very possibly, but it’ll take effort, because people like Mia Pfirrman, who hit some great notes on her audition.

Listening to her sing Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” left Adam swooning, although there’s a personality gap there that he might need to help her with.

Kelli Douglas, who performed “Danny’s Song,” made for an unexpected choice from an unexpected face, but she overcame stage fright and then some.

Not unlike Pharrell, Adam has his work cut out with these two if he wants to make them into contenders who can survive through public voting.

Team Blake, meanwhile, picked up John Martin, whose “Sweet Pea” was certainly very sweet, and Bree Fondacaro, who was great on “It Ain’t Me Babe.”

Bree’s tone was so gravely, Blake probably would have crawled across a bed of nails to get her based on that alone, but she had talent as well.

Later in the episode, we were introduced to Troy Ritchie, whose rendition of “Out of My League” made up for his Family Guy quotes and won over Gwen.

The best performer of the night was Anita Antoinette, with her rendition of “Turn Your Lights Down Low,” made up for lost time since her Season 3 failure.

Team Gwen scored a gem with this one. Think she has what it takes to win Battles, Knockouts and Votes from The Voice viewers? We will soon see.

Julianna Margulies In Lela Rose – New York Stage and Film 2013 Gala

Julianna Margulies In Lela Rose - New York Stage and Film 2013 Gala

Julianna Margulies attended the New York Stage and Film 2013 Gala held at the Plaza Hotel in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a dress from Lela Rose’s Spring 2014 collection.

While I associate this brand with younger Hollywood stars Nikki Reed, Miranda Cosgrove and Lea Michelle, this ivory dress with a black lace yoke doesn’t come across as too twee on the actress.

The black satin clutch works well with the look, complementing the lace; however, the nude Louboutins don’t really work with anything north of her ankles.

Do you agree?

Hilary Swank In Tory Burch -  Mariska Hargitay's Hollywood

Hilary Swank was on hand to celebrate her friend Mariska Hargitay’s Hollywood Walk of Fame unveiling in Los Angeles, California yesterday.

The actress donned the blush-hued ‘Liv’ frock from the Tory Burch Fall 2013 collection.

Her dress — which was modified to hit just below the knee — supplied a romantic 1940s vibe that we can aptly attribute to the soft silk-georgette pleats found throughout and the whimsical gold-sequined detailing on the collar and along the shoulders.

To finish, she accessorized with gold glitter pumps and a very casual hairstyle.

Cat Deeley In Diane von Furstenberg - Children In Need Gala Lunch

Cat Deeley and hubby Patrick Kielty were back in London for the Children in Need gala lunch held at The Savoy Hotel on Sunday.

Patrick looked very dapper in a navy blue two-piece suit with a black tee and black brogues.

Cat looked as beautiful as always wearing a chic black silk blouse with a Diane von Furstenberg ‘Mae’ pencil skirt from the Fall 2013 collection which featured a leopard print front, contrast stretch jersey black back.

Conservative, charity-luncheon-appropriate accessories included black pointy pumps and a classic Chanel quilted bag.

Trademark bouncy, glossy blonde locks and a glossier nude lip colour completed her look.

Shopbop.com, Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom.

Bethenny wore her long dark brown hair in a much more casual style — a ponytail — as she did the school run to pick up her daughter Bryn in Manhattan recently.

Sinbad: Bankrupt… Again!

Sinbad is legally broke once again.

The comedian – who hasn’t exactly been burning up the box office in recent years – filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy last month, TMZ has confirmed. He made the same financial move in 2009.

Sinbad on Stage

In official documents, the 56-year old entertainer says he owes $ 374,979 to American Express… $ 32,199 to Bank of America… and $ 2.3 million to the CA Franchise Tax Board.

He also owes tons more in state and federal taxes dating back over four years, all of which adds up to $ 10,991,715 in debt. The problem?

Sinbad only claims $ 131,000 in assets.

He does, however, own at least four vehicles; home office equipment; and 200 copies of “Sinbad’s Guide to Life”, which are on sale on Amazon for $ 6.25 apiece.

The last time Sinbad filed for bankruptcy, the case was dismissed due to improper paperwork. We wish him the best of luck digging out of this hole this time around.

Kirsten Dunst In Michael van der Ham – ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kirsten Dunst In Michael van der Ham  - 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Kirsten Dunst attended the ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ premiere during Cannes Film Festival this evening in support of her beau Garrett Hedlund.

I’m going to use this occasion to announce that I don’t really get the hoopla when it comes to Kirsten’s style.

She has had some great red carpet moments, but this should not count as one of them.

I think even Jane Fonda at 75-years-old would stay she’s too young to wear this black sheer Michael van der Ham Fall 2013 gown with black and purple velvet appliqués and white lace embroidery.

This is far too frumpy for my liking. Even for someone who is attending as a plus one.
