Press: RuPaul, Drew Barrymore, Faith Hill and James Corden to judge new talent competition

RuPaul, Drew Barrymore, Faith Hill and James Corden are set to headline The World’s Best, a global talent competition.

The 10-episode series comes from reality TV veterans Mark Burnett (Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television) and Mike Darnell (MGM Television), who are best known for their involvement in The Voice and American Idol.

Set to premiere in 2019, the series will feature acts from every genre as they attempt to break through the “wall of the world”. Not only will they have to impress the judging panel, but they’ll have to win over 50 of the world’s most accomplished entertainment experts.

Sharon Vuong – CBS’ SVP, Alternative Programming for CBS – said: “It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best. James, Drew, Faith and RuPaul are all amazing talents who have excelled in their respective fields on a global scale. We can’t wait for them to bring their distinct voices to a show that’s unlike any other.”

“We feel incredibly lucky that James Corden agreed to be part of this groundbreaking global event competition,” commented Darnell. He’s an absolute force of nature, and his versatility, passion and showmanship are unrivaled.

“The very name of the show defined the caliber of judges we sought out and ultimately got. Drew, RuPaul and Faith are incredibly accomplished superstars whose talents encompass every area of entertainment. Along with James, The World’s Best will now be the gold standard of competition shows.”

Burnett also said: “James Corden is at the top of his game and there is no one better to host this ultimate international competition series. This groundbreaking series is like the Olympics of talent shows and needed the perfect talent combination.”

Press: Drew Barrymore’s New Fragrance Line Is Designed to Last All Day

Blame it on body chemistry, but fragrances—no matter how high-end—never seem to linger on me longer than an hour. If I really go crazy spritzing in the morning, I might get lucky and still catch a faint whiff around lunchtime. But sadly, I’ve never been one of those lucky, fragrance-friendly people who gets to spend the whole day enveloped in a cloud of scent. (I know, I know—cue a chorus of tiny violins.)

Leave it to Drew Barrymore to create the anecdote. The latest from her line, Flower Beauty, is a six-part fragrance collection called “Pretty Deadly.” It’s comprised of three spicy floral scents, all of which are rendered in both eau de parfum and body mist form. And here’s the magic part: I find that if double-up on a single fragrance by spraying on the body mist version post-shower, then applying the eau de parfum as normal, the scent lasts for the whole day. Yep, really.

Of course, you can also wear them each alone or mix-and-match perfumes and mists to create a unique combo. But if, like me, you need a little extra insurance, layering two forms of the same scent is a total game-changer.

Press/Video: Watch Norm Macdonald sit down with Drew Barrymore, Michael Keaton, and more on new Netflix show

Norm Macdonald’s new Netflix talk show is finally set to make its debut and the streaming service has unveiled a profanity-filled first look at the series.

In the preview for Norm Macdonald Has a Show the comedian sits down with a long list of stars, including Drew Barrymore, David Letterman, Jane Fonda, David Spade, Chevy Chase, M. Night Shyamalan, Michael Keaton, and Lorne Michaels.

Along with his sidekick Adam Eget, the Saturday Night Live alum asks such probing questions as “Do you miss cocaine?” to Barrymore and “Have you been thinking about your mortality a lot lately?” to Letterman. In between talking strip clubs with Judge Judy and Chase quipping that he “f—ed” Bob Dylan, there are plenty of clumsy on-set mishaps to enjoy.

First announced in March, series is based on his podcast/web series Norm Macdonald Live and is set to debut on Sept. 14.

Drew Barrymore to produce new cooking reality series

As we know how much Drew loves watching cooking shows I am excited by this fun news that Fox has shared.

Actress Drew Barrymore is stepping into the world of reality TV after signing up to produce a new cooking competition.

The Charlie’s Angels star has been brushing up on her culinary skills since wedding husband Will Kopelman and becoming a mum to daughter Olive last year, and she has become obsessed with watching cooks battle it out on TV.

She reveals she records “every food competition show” to watch while she’s at home, and now Barrymore has decided to step behind the scenes to create her own, titled Knife Fight, for America’s Esquire Network, according to Marie Claire magazine.

The actress also admits she has developed a fascination with all things Italian, and plans to one day travel to the European country to learn how to make hearty family meals from local chefs.

She says, “(I want) to live in Italy for a summer and go to cooking school while I’m there.”

A premiere date for Knife Fight has yet to be announced.

Drew Barrymore Lightens Her Locks

People.com shares Drew’s changing hair tones!

We’ve been so busy admiring Drew Barrymore‘s lipstick choices lately that we almost completely missed the fact that she’s been slowly lightening her hair for months.

From the deep chocolate hue she was wearing in December, the actress has seemed to go lighter almost from the tips up, getting progressively more ombré before landing on auburn.

Then at Saturday’s GLAAD Awards, she debuted an even blonder style, going for an allover honey color with hints of strawberry that looks amazing with her fair skin.

She’s not the only star who’s been lightening up for spring and we are loving this new, blonder crew.

(PS: Still dying to know which lipstick color she wore to GLAAD? We were too, so we found out: It’s her own FLOWER Kiss Stick Velvet lip color in Dahlia Dahling and Line & Shine lip liner in Red.)

Drew is on the list of People’s Most Beautiful for 2013.

“Happiness is the best makeup any woman can wear,” Barrymore, who recently launched a makeup line, told E!. “It’s all about the inside … that’s where the poison or the sunshine lays.” It’s probably all sunshine these days for the new mom, 38, who welcomed her “biggest crush,” daughter Olive, in October.

Drew Barrymore on Pal Jimmy Fallon Taking Over The Tonight Show: “I Sent Flowers This Morning!”

On Thursday NBC announced that Jimmy Fallon will be replacing Jay Leno as the host of the Tonight Show next spring. E!Online caught up with Drew at the FABB Conference and talked to about it.

Count Drew Barrymore among those who thinks Jimmy Fallon is the perfect choice to take over The Tonight Show next year.

The actress exclusively told E! News today at Lucky magazine’s FABB Conference in L.A. that she sent her Fever Pitch costar flowers this morning along with “the most loving card in the world” after the official announcement was made that he would be replacing Jay Leno next year.

“He has remained always classy through whatever goes on in late night,” Barrymore said of Fallon, who also happens to be married to her producing partner, Nancy Juvonen.

Further explaining why he totally deserves the earlier time slot, Barrymore raved about how her friend “has been so quintessentially authentic to himself” throughout his run as host of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

“And I think he has been so innovative with making viral videos, having people come on and play games. It’s fun for the guest and it’s fun to watch,” she added. “He’s really done it on his own terms and done it brilliantly. So I was like, ‘Yeah, I knew that was going to happen.'”
