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.

Kim Kardashian is doing her part to help those affected by last week’s deadly typhoon in the Philippines.

Her pretty small part, that is.

The reality star announced on her blog Thursday that she’s auctioning off clothing on eBay, with the money raised being sent to a charity that benefits those in this ravaged area.

A very good idea and a very good cause, right? Absolutely.

But Kim fails to mention the fine print on the auction pages: only 10 percent of the final sales price will go to the International Medical Corps.

“The proceeds will go directly to the communities they’re serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives,” Kardashian writes on her Celebuzz blog.

“My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. Check out my eBay auction and support those who need out help in the Philippines.”

To learn more about the International Medical Corps, you can visit internationalmedicalcorps.org.

And you may wish to simply give directly to that charity instead of lining Kim’s pockets with 90% of your purchase from her auction.

Really. Hasn’t she made enough off the Kim Kardashian sex tape already?

Saturday Night Live Mocks Kim Kardashian & Kanye West, Presents “Waking Up with Kimye”
Celebrity News

Saturday Night Live took aim at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West this weekend.

In a skit titled “Waking Up with Kimye,” the show made fun of Kanye’s claim that he’s a genius, along with his belief that Kardashian actually possesses talent of any kind, let alone groundbreaking talent that ought to be admired in any way, shape or form.

We were also treated to a performance of triangles by The Kardashian 11, segments titled “Kim Wore It Better” and “What Kim Made” and Lady Gaga as an Apple store employee.

Hilarious stuff all around. Watch now:

The assault charge against Chris Brown, filed after his arrest early Sunday morning, has just been reduced from a felony offense to a misdemeanor.

Chris has been released from jail, where he had been for about 36 hours, with no bail. He is required to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim.

Chris Brown Singing Live

Brown will not be required to take a drug test, as often stipulated in such cases. His bodyguard’s charge was also reduced to a misdemeanor.

The controversial 24-year-old was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. after allegedly attacking a man outside a hotel and breaking his nose.

Brown had been in custody since, though it’s unclear who threw the first punch, and the reduced charge certainly indicates some of that uncertainty.

Law enforcement sources have indicated that the fight started when the man and his friend photobombed Chris, who was posing for a picture with two girls.

The victim says the same in his official statement, claiming he was trying to get a picture with Chris when Brown allegedly said, “I ain’t down wit that gay s–t.”

The victim says he responded by saying to Chris, “Why you hoing?”

Chris then said, “I feel like boxing” and hit him in the face. Then, he says, he went to square off with Chris when the bodyguard also hit him in the face.

According to the victim, who suffered a broken nose, after the bodyguard punched him, the R&B star got behind the bodyguard, screaming, “Yeah, walk away.”

Sources close to Chris insist it wasn’t over a photo, though, and that the guy tried to get on Chris’ tour bus, and Chris was just trying to stop a trespass.

In his witness statement, Chris DENIES punching the victim and says he was on the bus when the victim tried getting on and his bodyguard “handled it.”

Brown, who recently broke up with Karrueche Tran, faces certain jail time if found to be in violation of his probation for beating Rihanna back in 2009.

He could theoretically have his probation revoked without a conviction, but the more likely scenario is that probation officials will see how this plays out.

An artist’s rendition of what Barbie would look like without makeup is going viral online, and for good reason. The classic all-American girl doll looks natural!

Well, mostly. Ridiculous body proportions aside.

Take a look at Barbie with no make up below …

Barbie With No Makeup

While Barbie’s face is still freakishly out of proportion with your average young woman’s, she does look a bit more human without the blue eye shadow.

Take away that, the lipstick, the penciled-in eyebrows and the fake eyelashes and what do you have? A doll that looks a lot more like the girl next door, for sure.

This isn’t the first time someone has conceptualized a “normal Barbie.” Earlier this year, an artist illustrated what she’d look like with average measurements.

Barbie’s shorter, curvier look earned raves from Demi Lovato and others. Will the no makeup version making the rounds this week draw similar praise?

And would you be more inclined to buy this or the original model? Share your comments on the latest re-imagined, more natural Barbie doll below.

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.

Kim Kardashian is scheduled to give in July.

A few months later, Kanye West is scheduled to go on tour.

And while the dates/locations are yet to be announced, Kim has reportedly made up her mind: she and the baby are joining their man across the country, possibly even the globe.

Kim Kardashian: Very Pregnant!

The decision is being met with both praise (Way to keep the family together!) and skepticism (Who travels from city to city, hotel to hotel, with a newborn?!?)

Ellen Pompeo Spills “Grey’s” Scoop

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star opens up about the show’s upcoming crossover episode, the future of Cristina and Owen’s relationship and more. Listen in.

Carson Daly is still feeling the heat for comments he made yesterday morning on his radio show, and this time the source is the mother of a 9/11 hero.

Following Daly’s on-air joke that implied gay people were too weak to subdue an airline pilot – in this case, the JetBlue captain, Clayton Osbon, who simply lost control of his senses aboard a flight earlier in the week – Alice Hoagland has penned a letter to the host of The Voice.

Hoagland is the parent of Mark Bingham, one of the passengers on 9/11’s United Airlines Flight 93, who helped wrestle control from terrorists and crashed the plane in a Shanksville, Pennsylvania field, saving countless lives in the process.

“Yes, my gay son was known in our family for bringing me flowers on my birthday and Mother’s Day,” Hoagland writes. “He also was known for careening down the rugby pitch, and, on the morning of September 11, 2001, for charging unarmed down the aisle of a doomed Boeing 757 to face knife-wielding Islamist thugs in a hijacked cockpit.

“No one among his pick-up team of fellow passengers was asking ‘Are you straight? Are you gay?’ No one doubted that a guy who weighed 220 and stood 6’4” tall – who could run over a charging opponent on the field, and ran with the bulls in Pamplona earlier that summer – would be an asset to a desperate group trying to overcome a threat onboard an airliner.

“The world has its share of strong, heroic gay men. Gay men in sports uniforms and military uniforms have been winning America’s games and fighting America’s battles for a long time: quietly, humbly, and in the face of vicious bigotry.

“I hope you and I may have an opportunity to talk sometime. I prefer to believe you didn’t mean to offend. Good luck to you.”

Daly has since spoken to GLAAD and followed his Tweeted apology with the following statement:

We live in a time where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals find courage every day to overcome adversity, stand up to bullying and find equality. I’m truly saddened that my words today suggested otherwise. I’ve long been a supporter of Gay and Lesbian rights, and I’m saddened that my comments, however unintentional, offended anyone, specifically members of the LGBT community. The fact that I have hurt anyone is devastating. I’m not that guy. I’m proud to be an ally of the LGBT community and will continue to fight with them.
