Adam Levine May Have Killed Reagan Strange’s Chance At Winning ‘The Voice’

Adam Levine’s choice of Reagan Strange over fan-favorite DeAndre Nico as The Voice headed into its semifinals episode on December 10 could potentially backfire for the 16-year-old singer, who performed her semifinals songs to the tune of backlash from fans of the eliminated Nico.

Although her performances of both her solo and duet with Kennedy Holmes were solid, will it be enough for her fan base to push her through to the finals, and will that be enough for an overall win?

Strange, by no fault of her own, is suffering a backlash from fans of Nico, another one of Coach Adam Levine’s artists, who was booted from the show one week shy of the semifinals. Both Strange and Nico found themselves in the bottom three at the conclusion of the December 4 episode of the reality competition series, alongside Dave Fenley of Team Blake Shelton.

Normally all three singers would have performed one last time for America’s votes to win the show’s Instant Save. As Strange was allegedly too ill to sing again, Adam asked fans to rally around her to push her through to the semifinals, effectively eliminating Nico.

Voice fans were outraged, including Levine’s fellow coach Kelly Clarkson.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=tgolIxiiQuE%3Ffeature%3Doembed

Support for the departed Nico has grown since his elimination, leading Voice fans to wonder if any chance Reagan might have had has now been squashed heading into the show’s November 11 episode, where the season’s finalists will be announced.

Strange addressed the controversy on Twitter by stating, “I’m thankful for the opp my fans gave me to sing again. I love you all, even those who don’t want to be loved.” She then admitted, “I don’t expect some people to understand. they weren’t there.”

The news outlet 12NewsNow spoke to Nico after his elimination. The singer felt he was “sold out” by the Maroon 5 frontman.

You can tell these besties had a blast singing together! ????‍♀️ Did @imkennedyholmes & @imreaganstrange have you shakin’ your shoulders? #TheVoice

A post shared by NBC’s The Voice (@nbcthevoice) on

Nico shared his feelings about his former coach, who had promised to bring him “all the way to the finale.”

“It was just weird because I just felt like, not being rude, I just felt like he sold me out, you know? And I just don’t respect it, just being honest,” DeAndre admitted to the news outlet.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=9vHNYnwckHE%3Ffeature%3Doembed

He continued, “We did our job, sick or not. I just got over laryngitis, and when I came back, I still sang. It wasn’t any of that anxiety or none of that stuff. I know she’s a little kid, but it’s like man, you could have put in some words for me at all. Like something, something.”

Team Blake’s Dave Fenley, who also sang for the save and was eliminated, seemed to substantiate this theory when he replied to a concerned fan’s tweet saying Reagan had “no illness.”

There’s even an online petition requesting Nico’s return, and it’s received over 12,000 signatures thus far.

Levine addressed the controversy by claiming all was forgiven. “It was a strange week, but it’s over now,” he insisted. “DeAndre’s my boy. I love him. We talked.”

The Maroon 5 frontman continued to confuse fans by remarking to Strange after her semifinals performance, “Regardless of what happens tomorrow and next week, I think that you have a very bright future, and it’s been an honor being your coach no matter what happens.”

Fans will find out tonight if Strange will make it to the finals or if the backlash against her and Levine will be stronger than her vocal prowess and knock her out of the competition.

The Voice airs tonight on NBC.

Susanna Reid says she doesn't exercise and lost one-and-a-half stone without going to the gym

The 48-year-old presenter recently revealed she had lost over a stone after embarking on a new healthy eating regime.

Susanna has also cut out alcohol, but on today's Good Morning Britain, she declared she had also given up the gym.

It started with Piers Morgan giving her a healthy food hamper for her birthday and saying: "The worst thing about being alcohol-free, you're basically awake all the time, you obviously don't sleep.

"You don't do anything, you just exercise and eat kale."

But Susanna quickly corrected him, saying: "Actually I don't do any exercise at all.

"I stopped going to the gym, I found it made me too hungry."

Piers, 53, then asked how much more weight Susanna wanted to lose.

She replied: "I've levelled out, I lost a stone-and-a-half and that's enough, and I don't go to the gym."

Susanna previously thanked boxer Tyson Fury for giving her weight loss tips.

Susanna said during a chat with the sports star: "One of the things you have mentioned in the past couple of days is your weight, and it's something you and I have sparred over as well of course."

Piers interjected: "She's lost two stone Tyson. After your little pep talk, Susanna's wasting away!"

Susanna laughed and said: "You suggested that I eliminate, well take away, milk from my coffee so now it's black coffee only.

"Thank you very much for that tip! We can all learn from Tyson."

Emmerdale spoilers: Matty Barton left for dead by ex-boyfriend Isaac after sickening attack at New Year’s party

The attack comes as Matty – played by Ash Palmisciano – leaves a New Year’s Eve party.

He’s jumped by Isaac and his friends who don’t take kindly to the fact that Hannah is now a man called Matty.

Feeling hurt and humiliated, Matty confides in step-dad Cain Dingle who then accidentally spills Matty’s secret to a horrified Moira and Faith leading to more humiliation for Matty as Moira grills him about the attack.

Later, Victoria Barton encourages Matty to report Isaac and his friends to the police.

He takes her words on board and soon arrives back at Butler’s Farm, telling Cain and Moira that he’s told the police.

Cain is horrified when PC Swirling arrives at the house, fearing he’ll crumble and reveal that he ‘killed’ Joe Tate.

Meanwhile feeling empowered, Matty asks Ellis Grant for some personal training session so he can bulk up and handle himself.

But it’s not long before it becomes clear that Matty is struggling with something – what is it?

Matty arrived back in the village in June and left mum Moira stunned when he revealed he’d transitioned.

He was last seen in 2012 when he was known as Hannah, before leaving to live in London with sister Holly.

But Moira was stunned to discover that Matty had only been a few miles away in Manchester the whole time as he began his new life as a man.

8 Highlights as 'Elseworlds' Crossover Invades 'Arrow': Batwoman, Green Lantern, Batman and More

A trip to Gotham City unleashes a horde of Arkham Asylum inmates, before reality shifts again and we learn this is all just prelude to the real “Crisis” to come.

The CW is going all out in their latest crossover event, and it looks like "Elseworlds" might just be a harbinger — pun intended — of even worse to come.

On Monday night, the action shifted over to "Arrow" and brought along even more DC Easter eggs than the "Flash" premiere Sunday night. Not only did we get the long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut of Ruby Rose as Batwoman, but we finally learned how Oliver and Barry pulled a "Freaky Friday" (or is that "Quantum Leap"?) and why the Monitor is mucking with reality like this.

On top of that, we got the return of Earth-90 Flash, a Green Lantern hint, and more nods to the Batman mythology that you can shake Mr. Freeze’s cold gun at. Seriously it was all we could do to keep track of it all as our intrepid trinity of heroes made their way through Arkham.

We’ve gathered all the highlights, Easter eggs and revelations that are still blowing our minds below … and there’s still one night left to go in this madness:

Earth-1 Batman Is MIA

For years, fans have wondered if Green Arrow was the CW’s analog for Batman, as they weren’t allowed to use the prestige DC property, but with the recent inclusion of Superman into their multiverse, it seems the powers-that-be have relaxed their stance on this. Now, we get our most direct acknowledgement yet that Batman exists in this universe.

However, this is the version of Batman that is more of an urban myth than an established superhero. And on top of that, we find out that he’s been missing for about three years, along with Bruce Wayne. The comics have removed Batman from Gotham for various reasons over the years, but it remains to be seen what the thought is here.

Diggle for Green Lantern

One of the throwaway lines savvy viewers picked up on was when the Earth-90 version of the Flash actually recognized John Diggle. What’s more he asked him why he wasn’t wearing his ring, which would appear to be a clear nod to the Green Lantern mythology and the fact that John Diggle is so very much like John Stewart, who is one of Earth’s Green Lanterns.

It’s already been established that Earth-90 Flash is part of the Justice League of America on his world, which means he’s fought side by side with the Green Lantern. Just as Batman has been a part of Earth-1 all this time, it’s safe to presume that the Green Lantern Corps is out there policing the universe; we just haven’t met them yet.

Well, this is our first clear indication that there may be a connection between Diggle and the Corps. Could it be a hint that he’ll become a Green Lantern in the future? With his military background, discipline and training, Diggle is already exactly who Stewart was before he was selected. So was this just an Easter egg, or a hint of exciting things to come?

Batwoman Is Not

In his absence, his cousin stepped up as Batwoman, taking the city under her wing and even hijacking the Wayne Enterprises building. It also looks like she may have taken over the Batcave, but it wasn’t completely clear what the case was there. As this episode also served as a sort of backdoor pilot for a possible "Batwoman" series, it’s worth unpacking her world.

With Batman gone, Gotham has grown even darker, and it appears that Batwoman is working alone. Nevertheless, she mentions at least one R&D guy, which could be her gadget-maker a la Lucius Fox for Batman. She’s got a Batmobile, all of Batman’s cool gadgets and more tattoos than Kara could see with her x-ray vision.

Rose played it a little too gruff — especially when walking through the Batcave(?) — but there’s potential for her to find a compelling take on the character. Plus, the mystery of what’s happened to Bruce and Gotham in his absence would make a great opening arc. With "Gotham" wrapping this year, DC may be planning a quick return to Gotham with a new Bat-lead and we’re here for it.

Plus, with "Arrow" getting long in the tooth, should they decide to retire that show, the DCW Universe can continue with a new grim-and-gritty character who’s already sparked up some chemistry with her classic gender-swapped counterpart, Supergirl. They already payed tribute to the classic moniker for the pairing of their male counterparts when Batwoman suggested they could have been the "World’s Finest."

Earth-38 Has a Batman

Speaking of Supergirl, we’ve long suspected that her Earth has a Batman of its own, and now we get that confirmed. Even further, Kara told Batwoman that Batman and her Superman are close friends. Considering Earth-38 is closer to a Silver Age reality, with a little more light and optimism infused into its DNA than Earth-1, it’s easy to imagine that friendship.

Should "Batwoman" go to series, future crossovers could eventually introduce this version of Batman, adding to the complexity of Batwoman’s relationship with her cousin, and perhaps aiding in the mystery of where he’s gone. After all, it’s usually pretty out of character for Bruce to abandon Gotham, considering his obsessive drive to "save" it.

Arkham’s Infamous Villains

One of the reasons we love Batman so much is his incredible rogues gallery of villains, and we got hints at so many of them in this episode. We also got the suggestion that most of them are behind bars at Arkham Asylum, including Oswald Cobblepot (Penguin), Edward Nigma (Riddler), Pamela Isley (Poison Ivy), Basil Karlo (Clayface) and even the episode’s writer, Marc Guggenheim.

The most prominently featured villain was Nora Fries, wife to classic villain Mr. Freeze. In this continuity, though, it appears that she might suffer the same influction as her husband, as she was lamenting that she needs to keep her body temperature below freezing to survive.

In comics and "Batman: The Animated Series" continuity, it’s Victor Fries who suffers this infliction. His wife, Nora, is kept frozen to keep her in a form of stasis as she’s suffering a terminal ailment. Everything Victor does is toward the pursuit of finding a cure for her. It remains to be seen if this Mrs. Freeze’s husband is the one dying, or if she’s just a gender-bent take on the character.

And then there’s the spilled chemical compound labeled under the name J.Crane, an obvious nod to Jonathan Crane AKA the Scarecrow and his fear toxin, which explains why Oliver and Barry were fighting their arch-foes … though it doesn’t exactly make sense — considering their minds are swapped — that they would fight one another’s arch-foes. But hey, just roll with it.

No matter how you shake it, though, the villains make Batman, have made "Gotham," and could easily make "Batwoman" a show to watch. Maybe the brief prison break could be the catalyst that launches her series proper, as it certainly seems like almost all of the big ones are currently locked up.

Batman’s Legacy

But Batman’s legacy was all over this episode in so many different ways, some more subtle than a roster of his greatest villains. When Kara dropped by to visit Kate Kane (Batwoman) in Bruce’s old office that she’s occupied, Kara noticed a bust of Shakespeare in a box.

This was the infamous bust the dynamic duo of the 1960s "Batman" series used to open the entrance to their Batcave. Then, there’s the shape of the Bat-logo on the spotlight atop the GCPD building, shaped like the logo used in Christopher Nolan’s "Dark Knight" series of films.

And then, continuing a long-standing trend of giving shoutouts to past creators, one of the big fights of this episode took place on the corner of Nolan and Burton, a nod to Tim Burton’s 1989 "Batman" series of films. Of course, with Barry Allen from the 1990’s "Flash" series showing up, maybe all these different versions of Batman exist out there on other worlds.

Superman in Black

The episode ended with another reality shift, dropping Oliver and Barry into the identities of the Trigger Twins, a pair of lookalike bank robbers. This means neither of them have super-speed, nor Arrow’s meticulous training. They are, however, apparently good with guns.

Not that this will do much good when Superman drops in wearing a black suit. Sure, he looks like Kara’s Superman from Earth-39, but there’s a new menace to him and (SPOILER WARNING) the teaser for Tuesday night’s conclusion hints that this Superman has perhaps positioned himself as the law in this world.

There’s a history of black Superman suits in the comics, most prominently when Superman wore on as part of his recovery after his death at the hands of Doomsday. And then there’s the Superboy-Prime character (don’t even ask his backstory) who wore one and was more than a little unhinged.

In this case, it looks like this version of Superman may be Dr. Destiny nee Deegan, who was urged to "think bigger" when the Monitor gave the Book of Destiny back to him. Could he have positioned himself as the world’s most powerful superhero and rule the world?

There’s certainly precedent for this as well, most recently in the "Injustice" series of video games and comic books. Superman as despot is very difficult and dangerous to take down on a good day, which could explain why he depowered Barry and Oliver. As for Supergirl, it remains to be seen what happened to her as she just disappeared.

Coming Crisis

The biggest and most exciting reveal of the episode, though, came when the Monitor revealed that all of this is just a proving ground, a way for him to test parallel worlds in an attempt to find one worthy of taking on a threat bigger than him in the coming "crisis."

Well, that can only be the "Crisis on Infinite Earths," a multiverse-shattering event that wiped out the DC multiverse for a while, leaving only one surviving universe. In that story, the Monitor assembled heroes from a selection of surviving worlds to face the threat of the Anti-Monitor, his evil counterpart.

The coming of this crisis was preceded by red skies and storms, as have been following Barry and Oliver around Earth-1, and as appeared to have enveloped Earth-90 before that Flash escaped. Whether that’s the big crossover for next season or something further down the road this season, there is no bigger story in the entire DC Universe than the original "Crisis," so that one could break the DCW Universe as we know it forever.

"Elseworlds" concludes Tuesday night on "Supergirl" at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

Inside Ellen Pompeo's 'Sophisticated' Grey's Anatomy Trailer Designed by Pal Jeremiah Brent

It’s no surprise primetime TV’s highest-paid actress would have a trailer on set that’s fit for a queen. When it came to her latest renovation, Grey’s Anatomy‘s Ellen Pompeo tapped her friend, designer Jeremiah Brent (with Pompeo and his husband Nate Berkus), to bring her vision to life.

“Every few years Ellen likes to change up her trailer,” Brent tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It’s a home away from home where she spends a majority of her time.”

“The most important aspect was to play with different textures to create an environment that felt rooted in nature and serenity,” says the designer, who chose to wallpaper the ceiling with FJ Hakimian‘s dark raffia two-tone herringbone wave and floors by Urban Surfaces. “A curated color palette was crucial. We decided to introduce Venetian plasters in different tones of light grays and creams to create a relaxing and comforting atmosphere while giving the space warmth and texture.”

“Ellen was looking to create a multi-hyphenated space — a place to prepare for scenes, to conduct business, take lunch meetings, have her kids come to play, have dinner with mom, take naps and so on,” says Brent.

“My personal favorite is the organization and functionality,” says Brent about the trailer. “We were able to create a new daybed space, a new Murphy bed that not only introduces function but additional storage.”

“Ellen has an incredibly refined eye. Her taste is sophisticated but with an eye for comfort, and we wanted the space to reflect that while still having a well-traveled and warm look,” says Brent.

Brent chose a dining table by CB2 and dining chairs by France & Son to complete the space.

Brent — who brought in new sconces by Kelly Wearstler — also reimagined “the kitchen space in a way that was more organized and beautiful to look at,” he says. The updated space includes a built-in bar and quartz countertops.

“Ellen has an incredibly refined eye. Her taste is sophisticated but with an eye for comfort, and we wanted the space to reflect that while still having a well-traveled and warm look,” says Brent.

“Ellen is the type of person who you just love being around and soaking up her energy,” says Brent. “I hope the space reflects her depth and gives her a little taste of home wherever her work takes her.”

New ‘Carmen Sandiego’ Sets January Bow on Netflix

Netflix

We might not be able to answer where in the world is Carmen Sandiego, but we can say when Carmen Sandiego will be. Netflix announced today via Twitter that “Carmen Sandiego” will debut on January 18th, 2019. Start studying your geography now.
Unlike the earlier iterations of the character, “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?,” which aired on public television from 1991 to 1995 on public television, and “Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?,” which aired on public television from 1996 to 1997, this will not be a live action gameshow but a fully animated endeavor. That makes it closer to the fully animated Fox Saturday morning television show “Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?,” which ran from 1994 to 1999. (All of the series were based on a 1985 educational videogame that inspired a number of sequels, including one set in outer space.)
This new show will serve as something of an origin story for the character (voiced here by Gina Rodriguez), an international thief and raconteur, as well as her sidekick Player (voiced by Finn Wolfhard). According to the official release, “We will follow her escapades and get to determine not only where but WHO in the world is Carmen Sandiego?” Intriguing!
Hopefully the new series will utilize the same charming combination of education and entertainment that the original series did, since nobody minds learning stuff when it’s this fun.
