HOLLYWOOD, California (WJW) – Any singer will tell you, it’s not easy to take on Celine Dion or Andrea Bocelli.
But Marcelito Pomoy earned a standing ovation on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” by taking on both powerhouse singers.
Pomoy, 35, sang Bocelli’s tenor part and Dion’s soprano part of their hit duet “The Prayer.”
His performance brought the judges and the audience to their feet.
Hanks was crying. The audience was crying. We were all crying as the actor accepted the Cecil B. Demille Award.
Hanks accepted the award from presenter Charlize Theron after a clips package that began with his second career role in 1980 on the schlocky TV series “The Love Boat.”
“Most of the people in this room, I would pay to see them to get their cars washed,” Hanks said to open his speech, then asked the crowd of Hollywood luminaries for a show of hands. “Can I just say honestly, really, really, tell the truth now, how many people in this room have a clip package that includes ‘The Love Boat?’”
He turned back around with tears in his eyes.
“A man is blessed with a family sitting down front like that,” He said to wife Rita Wilson and his kids at the table with her. “I can’t tell you how much your love means to me.”
NEW YORK CITY — “Mrs. Doubtfire” will head to the Great White Way this spring, becoming the latest movie turned Broadway show.
The adaptation of the 1993 movie starring Robin Williams and Sally Field has already been a smash hit in Seattle, reportedly bringing in more than 4.7 million dollars over just 42 performances.
Rob McClure (“Beetlejuice,” “Something Rotten”) will lead the cast as Daniel Hillard, an actor who creates a female alter-ego to pose as his children’s nanny in order to spend time with them after losing custody in a divorce.
Gore! Blood! Nudity! Not for the faint hearted, this is how the makers of Dracula created *that* gruesome wolf scene.— BBC One (@BBCOne) January 1, 2020

Terrified Dracula viewers struggled to sleep after tonight’s first installment of mass murder, gruesome beheadings and incredibly creepy baby vamps.
The gory BBC series began this evening with English lawyer Jonathan Harker travelling to Transylvania to meet a new client, Count Dracula.
Jonny was later discovered by nuns and was a shell of a man as he explained what had happened to him.
Well #Dracula was brilliant ~ hilarious, horrific and scary in equal measure… and I absolutely LOVE Sister Agatha!— Amanda (@ajsaladine) January 1, 2020
Writers Stephen Moffatt and Mark Gattiss made sure the fanged villain’s presence was felt throughout, and actor Claes Bang certainly charmed viewers.
Having made the long journey from his castle in Eastern Europe to English shores to consume as many lives as his appetite desires, Dracula caused mayhem inside a convent.
As the convent’s Mother Superior tried to give a message of peace and calm, Dracula struck with a sword and lopped her head clean off, uttering: “She was clearing her throat but I think it’s fine now.”
The episode ended with Jonathan, or what viewers thought was Jonathan, standing before Mina.
Instead, it was Dracula, who gleefully ripped her lover’s face apart to expose his true identity, leaving her horrified.
Danish actor Claes Bang, 52, best known as The Affair’s Sasha Mann, plays the world’s most famous vampire in the BBC’s new three-part adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic.
- BBC’s three-part adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula premieres tonight at 9pm
- The series, from the creators of Sherlock, stars Claes Bang as the vampire
- Opening scene hints the Count might have had sex with his victims
- Bang, 52, also spends an ‘eyebrow-raising amount of time naked’ on screen
The show’s overtly sexual nature was also noted by Matthew Moore of The Times, who revealed the series includes a ‘sex scene between Dracula and Jonathan Harker (John Heffernan), the [British] solicitor dispatched to his Romanian lair’.
