This past season of “Dancing with the Stars” was the most stressful yet for dancer Lindsay Arnold who won the coveted Mirror Ball trophy for the 25th season with her celebrity partner, singer and actor Jordan Fisher.
“It was different from any season I’ve had,” said Arnold who is dancing with Fisher and fellow DWTS dancers in the tour “Dancing with the Stars: Live! — Light Up The Night.” The cast performs at Altria Theater on Wednesday.
In addition to Arnold and Fisher, the show features actor and season 25 contestant Frankie Muniz and dancers Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsev, Keo Motsepe, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Hayley Erbert and Brandon Armstrong.
In seasons past many of Arnold’s celebrity partners had no dance experience unlike Fisher who knows his way around a dance floor.
“With Jordan from day one all the producers were saying he is going to be a great partner and that puts so much pressure on me,” Arnold says. “That ..

William Hung 'Idol' Without the Bad AuditionsIsn't REAL Idol!!! 1/10/2018 12:30 AM PST EXCLUSIVE
"American Idol" producers are making a HUGE mistake by cutting bad auditions from the new version of the show ... so says the king of bad auditions, William Hung!
We spoke to Hung shortly after news dropped of the new format ... to go with the all-new judges panel of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. While producers feel those ear-splitting, glass-cutting attempts at singing make the show seem fake ... William says it's AI's calling card.
In fact, he says 'Idol' lost one of the few things that makes it stand out from all the other singing talent shows -- and the proof will be in the ratings.
Hung. Still banging ... on TV producers.

'Big Sick' Star Kumail NanjianiHere's The PassAt the Heart of My Movie 1/8/2018 11:18 AM PST Kumail Nanjiani's movie, "The Big Sick," wasn't a Golden Globes winner, but he was still feeling sentimental about the project Monday morning ... thanks to one family memento.
Kumail shared a shot of his phone number scribbled on the back of a hospital visitor pass. It's the pass his mother-in-law used when Kumail's wife, Emily V. Gordon, was sick in the hospital. If you haven't seen the movie, it's essentially the premise of the entire thing since the hospitalization is a catalyst for them getting back together.
It also took place in Chicago ... hence the 773 area code.
The flick came out last year to critical acclaim, but Kumail says Emily's mom only just found the pass.
He also added, "Certain objects have the power to pull you back. Wow."

A team of robbers returns to their lair only to be held up by sexy ladies who take away their money in the music video. Charli XCX stages a heist in a newly-released music video for David Guetta's "Dirty Sexy Money". The "Nuclear Seasons" hitmaker joins a group of masked robbers, who also include French Montana, to rob the bank vault. Charli and her crew return to their lair and take away a bag of money each, but the guys are held up by scantily-clad ladies on their way out. In the end, it appears that Charli enjoys the money all for herself and her sexy female friends as she's seen throwing a bag of the cash from the rooftop.
"If you wanna pu-pu-pu-pu-put it on me/ You're not gonna ge-ge-ge-ge-get it for free/ Come on spend that dirty sexy money on me, on me, on me," she sings the chorus, before continuing in the second verse, "Put your skin on my skin, on my skin/ Love it when we touchin', love it when we f***in', my love/ Make you high in a heartbe..
The holidays are all but over (Saturday is the official 12th day of the 12 days of Christmas), and 2018’s First Friday is upon us, getting the New Year off to an artistic start with an exhibition by Dennis Applebee.
Just down the street from the Macon Arts Alliance, First Friday will be celebrated at The 567 Center with Heather McLaurin’s “Hazy Forms” (painting with smoke). Later in the month, Wesleyan College will present “Seizing Life,” a memorial exhibition of the photography of Fernando La Rosa.
Theater will be sparse until February, but we are not totally bereft, thanks to Gram Slaton and the Broadway series at the Grand Opera House. “The Sound of Music” rolls into Macon for performances Jan. 21-22. After the hills come alive, we won’t hear the sound of theater again until February, when Macon Little Theatre opens “Beau Jest” and Theatre Macon opens “Company.”
But that’s not to say the stage at the Grand will be vacant. One of the red letter events of the year will take place Jan..

After the fallout from the Hollywood sex scandal, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards are making next year's ceremony all about female empowerment.
The annual awards, which hand out 13 acting honours, will have a host for the first time - Kristen Bell - and all of the presenters will also be women.
"It's been the year of the woman," SAG Awards executive producer Kathy Connell told Hollywood Reporter.
The 24th annual SAG awards take place on 21 January.
The presenters have not been named yet, but it marks a change from tradition which dictates that a man and a woman present the prizes.
SAG Awards: Snubs, flubs and fashion disasters"This is a unifying salute to women who have been very brave and speaking up," Connell added.
"We don't want to slight the men who have given great performances this year - knowing our membership, I'm sure our men will embrace the opportunity to honour women.'
"It's still an awards show and a celebration. We're not here to ..
