When Tom Bergeron merely mentioned her partner’s name, telenovela star William Levy, on the Dancing with the Stars season premiere, the crowd erupted in eardrum-bursting screams usually reserved for the likes of Justin Bieber — and they continued throughout their rehearsal package, their routine, critique and judges’ scores. “Oh my God! The screams were so insane!” Burke tells TVGuide.com. “I thought I was gonna go deaf.

How many of you wish that you, too, could throw the fake ashes of Kim Jung-Il in Ryan Seacrest’s face? – Seacrest can probably sue Baron Cohen for civil assault, which occurs when a defendant intentionally causes the plaintiff to be in fear of harmful or offensive contact.

The group’s fourth LP, Overexposed, will hit shelves on June 26th and offer ten new songs. “‘Moves Like Jagger’ [from 2010’s Hands All Over] was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record,” guitarist James Valentine said in a statement. “At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most ‘pop’ record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.” – Read more at Rollingstone
