DAVID ARCHULETA’S CHRISTMAS GREETINGS 2012
Tim Urban on Taylor Swift Break-Up Song: Maybe It Will Get Me Back on ‘Ellen’ (Video) – “I think Simon would get the humor in it,” he says of the salty Brit, whose judging days on Idol came to an end after Urban’s season (which also featured talk show host Ellen DeGeneres as a judge). “Simon has a sneaky sense of humor. I think he would appreciate it.” The 23-year-old Texas native doesn’t think fans of either pop star are offended by his ditty — the video already has 1,000 likes and few dislikes — and he’s is hoping that Swift and Styles take a look at the video. If nothing else, Urban demures, “Maybe this is my way back on Ellen.” – Read more at The Hollywood Reporter

Interview: Movie role will keep Jennifer Hudson in holiday spirit – It’s a good thing Jennifer Hudson was already in the Christmas spirit Tuesday at her “A Hudson Holiday” party at the House of Blues, because the Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer will need it for the next few months. Hudson was recently cast alongside Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett in “Black Nativity,” based on Langston Hughes’ gospel musical of the same name and, according to blackfilm.com, will film January through March in New York City. The film revolves around a Baltimore teenager who is sent to Harlem by his single mother, played by Hudson, to spend Christmas with grandparents he’s never met. “It’s a musical and has kind of a Christmas feel to it,” Hudson said. “All of those things intrigued me and made me want to be a part of it.” – Read more at Chicago Tribune

‘X Factor’ UK Finale Hits Low; Simon Cowell On Deck For Revamped Season 10? – This Sunday night’s season finale hit a peak of 12.8M with delayed viewings. Overall, an average 11.1M viewers (with delayed viewings) watched the two-hour show that aired from 7:40pm to 9:40pm for a 39.6% share. That was a 2M down from last year’s finale and more than 6M off the 2010 finale, The Guardian reports. Figures for the semi-final show last weekend were down 40% compared to 2010 when Cowell was still a judge, according to The Independent. (That season launched boy band One Direction.) Advertising revenues are also said to be down. ITV will generate about £85M in advertising coin from this season, according to The Guardian, about £15M down from its peak. – Read more at Deadline
Nice to ‘Glee’ ya, Lea – Sexy “Glee” star Lea Michele clearly isn’t afraid to show off her backside — but it’s her breasts that she just can’t stop talking about. “These babies are great. They are my prizewinners,” she boasts in the latest issue of Marie Claire magazine (inset). “They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place,” joked the Bronx-born and Tenafly, NJ-raised Michele, who’s been burning up red carpets with her plunging necklines. “So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.” – Read more at New York Post
