Michael Grimm, Americas’s Got Talent Winner, proposes to girlfriend live on TV

She answered “YES!”

Grimm, 30, revealed his plans to marry Lucy and that she was the inspiration for his performance of “When a Man Loves a Woman” during Tuesday’s finals.

“She’s been there for me,” Grimm tells DeGeneres during the show, which airs Friday. “Once you find that good woman you hang on to her.”

While interviewing him, DeGeneres called Lucy down from the audience, and Grimm got on one knee to pop the question.

Michael Grimm, a Mississippi blues singer who won $1 million, plans to use the money to buy his grandparents a house.

Ben Affleck: “I have the best family”

In a recent interview for Ellen DeGeneres, actor and film director Ben Affleck talked about living with three women in a house, those being his daughters Violet and Seraphina and also wife Jennifer Garner.

“I just know what it’s like to be a serf that just does things. When one of the vassals comes and points at something … I take orders from people that cannot speak. And yet still they are higher up on the food chain than I am.”

The actor loves his family so much and feels really happy: “I am madly in love. I have the best family.”

Affleck currently promotes his new film called “The Town” in which he stars and directs.

Ellen DeGeneres says Cowell is not as she believed to be

Lately, Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi (KEHR’-uh dee-oh-GWAR’-dee) and many other guest judges kicked off the ninth season of the Fox singing competition in January.

Moreover, Ellen DeGeneres , the newest judge, begins her stint Tuesday night.

It seems that Ellen describes Cowell in a video posted on the show’s web site as “actually meaner than I thought. It’s hard to listen to him tell people things and for me not to go, `You poor thing!'”

The show host, DeGeneres said that no one has given her advice on judging :”they’re just letting me do what I want to do.”

Is American Idol history?

Looking back into the past we saw that American Idol was unstoppable in ratings, thing that is not available for present time.
Taking into consideration that Paula Abdul is gone from the show and that Cowell might be the next one, the ratings have declined. Moreover, many fans did not appreciate the coming on the show of the fourth judge, Kara DioGuardi and also by the announcement that Ellen DeGeneres will take Abdula’s place. There is one question to answer : will American Idol be history?

According to TV critic Maureen Ryan : “Every show has a life cycle. “I think [‘Idol’] has reached that point in its maturity where it’s not necessarily guaranteed to end up on the top of the ratings heap every single night, every single week, every single year. I think it will certainly be high up there, but I don’t think it will be as huge a phenomenon as it has been.”
Consequently, the only thing that remains is to watch a new season of American Idol and to decide for ourselves if the show will still have success with the new changes.
