'The Voice' Recap: Three Knockouts, Four Artists Move On
It's a short night for The Voice. With only a one-hour show Tuesday, the singing competition featured only three additional Knockouts, one of which was already shown early on the show's YouTube channel. At least one of the other two featured a steal by Gwen Stefani. Read on to find out which four artists moved on from the trio of matchups on Tuesday.

Team Gwen: Taylor John Williams, "Mad World" vs. Troy Ritchie, "Hey Ya"
This knockout were already posted to YouTube as another "sneak peek" clip, so there's not a ton of suspense here. It's the usual two artists are in one space and the coach...

'The Voice' Recap: Taylor Swift Joins For The Knockouts
Now that the Top 48 have been picked and cut in half (except for those eight steals), it's time to cut the field in half again (except for four more steals) on The Voice. Welcome to The Knockouts, which are back this season after having been replaced by a second cycle of Battles in season six. Apparently that change didn't go over well, because we're using the old formula: two artists each perform a song of their choice and only one moves on.

We can also say goodbye to the individual team advisors and hello to Taylor Swift, who becomes the go-to girl for all four coaches just as her new al...

5 Ways ‘Awkward’ Jenna Is Like Matty
I know what you’re thinking: 'Awkward's' Jenna and Matty couldn’t be any more different. You’d be right, but only when it comes to their rollercoaster of a relationship. A part (which is, sadly quite often this season) they’re more likely to rub off on each other. Jenna is certainly picking up on Matty’s dysfunctional relationship tips, and I highlight five of them below.

1. Secret Lovers- It’s almost like history repeating itself when junior cougar Jenna spurred a secret rendezvous relationship with sophomore Owen. Not unlike the one Matty initiated on Jenna seasons ago, and had her make ...

It was week 6 of the competition on "Dancing with the Stars" and time for some serious footwork. Sitting in for judge Len Goodman was Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull.

Team Pharrell: Taylor Phelan (4 chairs in blind auditions) vs. Jordy Searcy (3 chairs), "Breakeven"

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Week 5 'Switch Up' Swap Creates
"Dancing with the Stars" brought back their most controversial theme yet for the second year in a row, the "switch up" where for one week stars were paired with different professional partners. While last year's switch brought drama to the dance floor, this time around the pairs seemed invigorated by their new partners. Singer Jessie J sat in for Len Goodman, who is still in the U.K. working as a judge on "Strictly Come Dancing" with Bruno Tognoni. Joining Jessie for her debut as a judge was Tognoni, Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba. No eliminations this week, but scores from last week w...
