American Idol pulled out all the stops during Wednesday night’s finale and brought in major stars to perform for the two hour special, including Janelle Monae, Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Ricky Martin. But it was one of the opening performances that left quite an impression … and for many, not in a good way.

Top five finalist, Tyanna Jones hit the stage with Marlon, Jackie and Tito Jackson and performed a melody of classic old school hits which included, “I Want You Back,” “ABC” and “Shake Your Body.”

But while Jones held her own against the famous Jackson family, it seemed to be a more of a struggle session for the brothers. Needless to say, fans took notice.

Despite some of the botched vocals, it was a moment to remember. After all, anytime the group gets together it’s sure to be nostalgic.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Sattelite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind; to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of back bone, a message about climate change and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the cautiousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “Integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying ‘here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
