Marie and Donny Osmond have canceled their “The Donny and Marie Show” at the Flamingo Las Vegas this week. Marie, whose18-year-old son Michael Blosil died last month, needs to spend more time with her family to heal the loss of her son. Michael committed suicide on February 26. A day after his funeral, Marie returned to the stage on March 9, saying she would be able to survive the difficult time by singing. Donny commended his sister for staying strong and committing to the show. However, it seems that the heartache is just too much for the 50-year-old “Paper Roses” hitmaker. She opted to put the Vegas show on hold until March 23 to spend more time with her family. Toxicology tests on Michael are pending.

Opening the event was Jay Sean with U.K.’s beat box champion MC Zani, performing Jay’s hit single “Down”.

As she strutted the stage in red pumps, she took a seat at her piano to vocalize “Doesn’t Mean Anything”. The night’s other performances included artists such as TLC, Ciara, Timbaland, Snoop Dog, and to cap off the evening, Justin himself, surprising the crowd with “Until the End of Time.”
A key component to Dancing with the Stars is that the celebrities should all be moderately recognizable. Heck, “star” is right there in the title. Every season there are always a handful of people I’ve never heard of, a few people I vaguely recognize, and some people I thought were too good to be on reality TV (I’m looking at you, Oscar winner Marlee Matlin). So who are this season’s most famous celebs, and which Continue reading →
