Jamie Dornan's Musical Moment in Fifty Shades Freed Isn't as Random as You Might Think

Let's be real: the Fifty Shades soundtracks are phenomenal. The movies may receive mixed responses, but the musical scores have often gone viral, from hits like Ellie Goulding's "Love Me Like You Do" - which was nominated for a Golden Globe back in 2016 - to the haunting, Grammy-nominated "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" by Taylor Swift and Zayn. The Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack is no different, featuring music from Hailee Steinfield, Julia Michaels, a collaboration by Rita Ora and Liam Payne, Sia, and - wait for it - Jamie Dornan. Dornan sings a cover of Paul McCartney's classic "Make Me Amazed," as he does in the film, and it will be a bonus track on the album. According to director James Foley, "He is an incredibly good singer – he sang a lot on set. He sings in three, but it's a surprise." And what a pleasant surprise at that!

Jamie Dornan's Dreamy Fifty Shades Freed Song Will Make You Melt Into a Puddle

Image Source: Getty / Axelle/ Bauer-Griffin The Fifty Shades franchise might be saving the best for last. While the Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack includes original songs from Ellie Goulding and Sia, as well as a catchy duet from Liam Payne and Rita Ora, there is one unexpected singer on the final track: Mr. Christian Grey himself. As a bonus track on the album, Jamie Dornan covers Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed," marking the first time the 35-year-old actor will appear on a soundtrack for the film trilogy. And let's just say, we're fanning ourselves just listening to it. That being said, Dornan does have a musical past; he used to sing in a band called Sons of Jim. Listen to his dreamy melody from the film below and prepare to melt into a puddle.

'Fifty Shades Freed' Review: Welcome to the Most Painful 'Shades' of All
What timing! In the era of #MeToo and #Time's Up, it hardly seems like the moment for a movie about a woman who does the sexual bidding of a powerful rich dude. (Though it might be just the ticket on whatever island Harvey Weinstein, Louis C.K., James Toback, Jeremy Piven and other accused male predators are hiding out on.) Audiences are in for two hours of cruel and unusual punishment, even as the third and blessedly final chapter in the film trilogy based on E.L. James' bestselling bucket of

‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Is An Unsatisfying Climax To The Series [Review]

The third film in the ‘Fifty Shades‘ trilogy thinks its most shocking moment is when a reluctant Ana (a reluctant Dakota Johnson) opens a drawer full of fancy butt plugs in her new husband’s glam sex dungeon, aka the “Red Room.” However, “Fifty Shades Freed” gets a far bigger Wtf when it punishes its audience by making them sit through minutes of Christian (Jamie Dornan, still physically present) playing the piano and singing “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney for no particular reason to the inexplicable awe of his wife and friends.

The 10 Best (and Two Worst) Super Bowl Halftime Performances (Watch)

The 10 Best (and Two Worst) Super Bowl Halftime Performances (Watch)
Not everyone watches the Super Bowl for the football: Last year, Lady Gaga’s halftime show on Fox was viewed by 117.5 million people, which is nearly six million more than watched the New England Patriots’ thrilling (or crushing) overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

The Super Bowl halftime show is a condensed stadium show that runs between 11 and 13 minutes and has featured headliners ranging from rock legends like Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and The Who to pop divas Madonna and Katy Perry to R&B-leaning artists Prince, Michael Jackson, Beyonce, Bruno Mars and this year’s headliner, Justin Timberlake.

The halftime show wasn’t always such a superstar-driven extravaganza. Before Michael Jackson upped the show’s game in 1993, previous years’ entertainment included Up with People, the Los Angeles Super Drill Team, assorted college marching bands, the Rockettes and Chubby Checker, salutes to Hollywood, the Big Band era and Duke Ellington. The 1995 show

Grammys 2018: Jay-z suffers one of the worst shutouts of all time with 8 nominations and 8 losses

Grammys 2018: Jay-z suffers one of the worst shutouts of all time with 8 nominations and 8 losses
With eight nominations, Jay-z was the most recognized artist at the 2018 Grammys, but he lost every single one of those nominations, which makes it one of the worst shutouts in the history of the awards. Check out the complete list of winners here.

But Jay-z is in good company. Two other artists went zero-for-eight just last year. Kanye West and Rihanna each had that many nominations at the 2017 awards but left empty-handed. That tied them as the second worst shut-out in history, right behind Paul McCartney, who lost all nine of his nominations back in 1966. Don’t cry for him, though — McCartney has gone on to accumulate 18 trophies from the recording academy.

Jay-z’s circumstances were similar to Indie.Arie‘s in 2002. Going into that year’s awards Alicia Keys was the biggest breakout star, so it was surprising when Arie picked up more nominations. Arie had seven bids to Keys’s six,

Grammys 2018: Kendrick Lamar predicted to win 6, more than any rap artist ever in a single year

Grammys 2018: Kendrick Lamar predicted to win 6, more than any rap artist ever in a single year
Since the 2018 Grammy nominations were announced last November we’ve had more than 1,900 users make their predictions in 32 categories here at Gold Derby, and according to our collective forecasts it’s going to be a big night for Kendrick Lamar when trophies are handed out on Sunday, January 28. Not just big — historic.

Lamar is the second most nominated artist of the year with seven, and he’s projected to win six of those. That would not only be the most awards won by a single artist this year, it would be one of the biggest hauls for any artist in a single year. He would tie for third place on the list of the most awarded artists in a single evening. Also with six trophies were Roger Miller (1966), Toto (1983), Quincy Jones (1991), Eric Clapton (1993), Beyonce (2010), and Adele (2012). That would put Lamar just two wins behind the all-time record-holders, Michael Jackson (1984) and
