Normani Koredi Crowned “DWTS” Winner At Fifth Harmony’s Emotional Philly Concert

Normani Koredi Gets Crowned DWTS Winner At Fifth Harmony's ShowFifth Harmony performed in Philadelphia Friday night and emotions ran high in the wake of the Ariana Grande concert bombing. The ladies took multiple opportunities to acknowledge their love for their fans and as they left the stage, they waved a powerful banner that one concert goer brought to the show.

The rainbow-colored banner read “Let us love the world to peace” and Lauren Jauregui decided to chant the phrase as her bandmates waved it high.

“One of the highlights of the show tonight, thank you to whoever brought this and for every one in that room being so full of LOVE,” Lauren later tweeted out.

Earlier in the show, Ally Brooke addressed the tragedy with an emotional speech that brought her to tears. “We don’t understand it, but we must persevere,” Ally said, choking back tears.

On top of the inspirational environment curated at the hands of the crowd and the band, Normani Koredi also experienced a moment to remember. After a shocking third place finish on this season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Normani was still able to be crowned the winner in Philadelphia. A fan passed her very own trophy to the front of the stage after Normani, once again, thanked her fans for their support during her recent journey.

Check out a few videos from the show below.

Liam Payne Recalls Being Shoved By Jay Z’s Bodyguard Before Debut Performance Of His New Single

Liam Payne Got Shoved By Jay Z's BodyguardLiam Payne appeared on the most recent episode of “The Graham Norton Show.” The former One Direction member dished about fatherhood, Cheryl Cole and being shoved by Jay Z’s bodyguard.

“I went to lean in to speak to him, but you can’t lean in to speak to Jay Z,” Liam says. “His bodyguard just shoved me and I went flying across the room. I was like, ‘Right, I’m just going to sit over here. Thank you.'”

After detailing the first time he changed Bear’s diaper, Liam was forced to sit through his awkward first encounter with his baby mama while auditioning for “The X Factor.” As you recall, the former One Direction member winked at her and he is finally able to rub it in his friends’ faces.

“I was ribbed terribly by my friends at school for doing that,” he says of the wink aftermath. “Now I am 23 and with her and my friends stand mute in the corner of the room.”

Liam also had the chance to perform his debut solo single “Strip That Down” for the very first time on television.

Check out the interview and performance below.

Joe Jonas And Alessia Cara Tapped To Host Canada’s Much Music Video Awards

Joe Jonas And Alessia Cara Tapped To Host Canada's Much Music Video Awards featureJoe Jonas and Alessia Cara will be the unlikely duo hosting the 2017 Much Music Video Awards in Canada. It’s a return to the hosting gig for Joe, who hosted the same awards show in 2009. According to a report, he’s also set to bring DNCE along for a performance of “Kissing Strangers.”

“I’m looking forward to getting back on this stage, at one of my favorite events, to celebrate and to host the show with Alessia,” Joe told iHeartRadio. The measured responses from Joe was a stark contrast to Alessia’s nerd girl quote for iHeart.

“I grew up watching the MMVAs every year in my living room with my family,” she said. “I’m really excited to be a part of it and take the stage in a different way this year. Can’t wait to mess up every line, because I absolutely will!” Sounds like the duo could already be working out who’s going to be the funny one on the night of the show.

Alessia performed at last year’s MMVAs, which were hosted by Joe’s ex, Gigi Hadid. Hopefully, he’s a less controversial host than she was.

Kim Kardashian-West Is Getting Credit For Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit Sales

Kim Kardashian West Is Getting Credit For Kylie Jenner's Lip Kit Sales featureWhen Kylie Jenner teamed up with her big sis Kim Kardashian-West for a line of lip kits, she must’ve known it would be a big sales boost. She might not have expected Kim to literally be handing lip kits out, though. That’s exactly what Kim is ready to do in a new teaser for the next episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”

The quick trailer features Kim showing up to Kylie’s New York pop-up shop and handing out free lip kits. The shop in Soho drew over 2,000 people and Kim was happy “take 30 lip kits and just throw them everywhere.”

Kylie hasn’t had any problems selling the lip kits on her own. Her business is thriving despite frequent complaints and mistakes. But a little promo help from one of her famous sisters isn’t the kind of thing Kylie ever turns away.

See how Kim helps Kylie move some lip kits below.
