Jordan Fisher Crowned Dancing with the Stars Season 25 Mirrorball Champion
Dancing with the Stars has crowned its season 25 winner!

On Tuesday night, Jordan Fisher, Lindsey Stirling and Frankie Muniz went head-to-head on the season finale of the reality dancing competition series, but it was Fisher who was victorious and took home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy after earning overall perfect scores for his final two dances. Stirling was runner-up and Muniz was second runner-up.

Speaking moments after his big win, Fisher was lost for words to describe what it felt like to win, but had plenty to say about his partner Lindsay Arnold.

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)

My 5: Corbin Bleu’s Favorite Modern, Holiday Classics (Exclusive)
Only 28 years old, Holiday Inn had been out for nearly 50 years by the time Corbin Bleu was born. But that didn’t stop the former High School Musical star and Dancing With the Stars contestant from stepping into the role made famous by Fred Astaire in Broadway’s musical adaptation of the film.

In fact, Bleu brought a modern flair to the character of Ted Hanover, a professional dancer who loses his partner to an oil tycoon and later sets his sights on friend Jim Hardy’s holidays-only hotel performer and love interest, Linda Mason. In one particular number from the Broadway show, “Let's Say It With Firecrackers,” Bleu performs a solo tap dance with the accompaniment of firecrackers with so much pizazz and style that even Astaire would have been impressed.

“We were really giving a new birth to the new number,” Bleu tells Et about working with choreographer Denis Jones to morph it for his body

Horrible Histories: the 15 greatest songs

Catherine Pearson Nov 20, 2017

With reports of a Horrible Histories feature film in development, we salute the genius songs of a magnificent show...

Ah, Horrible Histories. The show that brings all the slapstick humour and wordplay of Blackadder and Monty Python to a young audience. It’s a rare and marvellously British televisual feast (points for citing the reference, there): a bunch of hugely talented actors charging around in historical outfits, singing songs and starring in genius pop culture-inspired spoofs to deliver the darker side of history to school children.

Zac Efron Goes Back to His Dancing Roots in The Greatest Showman

Zac Efron Goes Back to His Dancing Roots in The Greatest Showman
By now, teases of High School Musical reunions, secrets and alternate endings are the oldest click bait in the book. There's never going to be another HSM—at least not in the form that its original fans know—so it's about time to let it go. But those who thrive on nostalgia and are still clinging to a long-gone version of Zac Efron can still find ways to hold on to that memory. Take next month's The Greatest Showman. Is it about teenagers? No. Are there basketball games? Definitely not. But by God, there'll be dancing. The musical, which also stars Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams and Zendaya, is inspired by the real-life tale of P.T. Barnum, who...

May the force be with you, Wildcats. TV series based on Stars Wars and High School Musical are in the work, Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed during a quarterly earnings call with reporters.

All New Marvel Series To Launch Via Disney; Will Daredevil And Co. Remain On Netflix?

The fallout from Disney’s earnings call continues.

Amid news that Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi) has been tasked with delivering an all-new Star Wars trilogy, not to mention the live-action series set in that galaxy far, far away, we’ve now received yet more evidence that Marvel‘s street-level heroes (see: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, et. al) may be pulled from Netflix and relocated to Disney’s new streaming platform in 2019.

It’s a subscription service that’s clearly being angled as a director competitor to Netflix – CEO Bob Iger confirmed today that it’ll be priced “substantially below” Netflix’s current $10.99 entry point in two years’ time – so we can’t imagine the Mouse House will want some of its most valuable assets on another platform.

Regardless of whether its current pool of content is shifted, The Wall Street Journal has confirmed that all new Marvel series will be

Live-Action Star Wars TV Show In The Works At Disney

In addition to a fourth trilogy of movies being hatched by The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson, Disney has confirmed plans to launch a new live-action Star Wars series in 2019.

The project was one of three major TV shows announced at the company’s earnings call today (via The Wall Street Journal), after it was confirmed that both Monsters Inc. and High School Musical are also headed to the small screen. It’s all part of Disney’s aggressive plan to stake a claim in the streaming market and, essentially, draw power away from Netflix, the undisputed king of digital content. And it seems the Mouse House is bringing its big guns.

Unlike Rebels and the newly-released Forces of Destiny, this all-new Star Wars series is the first sign of a live-action TV show since Disney announced Underworld back in 2005. Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and

Jordan Fisher and Corbin Bleu Are the Musical Duo We Never Knew We Needed on DWTS

  • BuzzSugar
Jordan Fisher has been dominating the competition on Dancing With the Stars, and on Monday night, he took things up a notch by teaming up with former contestant, Corbin Bleu. The talented musical stars certainly made hearts flutter when they performed a salsa with pro Lindsay Arnold for the show's special trio night. Aside from flaunting their bare chests in matching purple shirts, the two set the dance floor on fire with their incredible moves. Seriously, we need these two to do a musical together, Asap!
