The Cute Ridhi Out There Is No Leads for Desi Twilight Yet

Ridhi Dogra for Audition
June 14 is the anticipated telecast date for Balaji Telefilms’ desi version of the popular series Twilight. Still, Balaji is yet to finds the main leading role Abhay and Pia.

Ekta Kapoor is having a hard time hunting for most characters. Interestingly, Balaji has been accomplishing auditions for the show since several months now. They had invited youngsters for auditions through different social networking sites.

“The problem is not about having a rookie or familiar actors; the difficulty has been that most of the people who we’ve auditioned are struggling to fit into the requisite characters. Abhay and Pia aren’t ordinary characters and it’s definitely not easy to find a character that falls in love with a vampire. Contrary to some reports, Ridhi Dogra didn’t audition for the lead role at all. I don’t think she’s doing the show now. The schedule is supposed to be launched on June 14. We’re hoping to find the leads in a week or so,” said a source.

Meanwhile, Ridhi Dogra says that she’s out of the show.

“I’m not doing that show. It’s been well over two months since I had auditioned for the protagonist’s role as well as for her two sisters. However, I haven’t got any call from them,” confirmed Dogra.

American Idol Auditions

American idol Auditions
It all came down to this finishing night of performances on "American Idol" when Lee DeWyze and Crystal Bowersox dueled in a sing-off for the "American Idol" title.

There were three rounds of contest: First, each contender sang their favorite song from the season, then they sanged a song selected by "Idol" executive producer Simon Fuller, and finally, they sang the song that will become their first single if they win the competition.

Crystal won the toss, and she chose to go second, so Lee started the night with "The Boxer," which he originally sang during inspirational week. Randy Jackson told him, "A great way to start it off. I think this night will be a contest to the finish. It was a nice song, but picks it up and gets more energy going." Ellen DeGeneres praised, "I couldn't be prouder if I birthed you myself. I think you did that better than the first time." Kara DioGuardi agreed with Randy, saying, "You have to punch harder. It is a meaningful song that tells your story, so you connected." Simon Cowell said, "I have to be frank with you, Lee. This is the big one, so I would expect a lot more passion and excitement. That was a kiss on the cheek when I want a kiss on the lips -- but not from you. It has to be a bit more than that."

Lee DeWyze

Crystal chose to perform the song she sang on Billboard No. 1 week: "Me and Bobby McGee." Randy pointed out, "It started a little slow for me. You picked it up in the middle. I hope you make a record like that, I thought it was dope." Ellen told her, "I have said it before. I think you are just so persuasive on stage." Kara praised, "I loved it when you first did it and I loved it tonight. You have fire in your belly tonight. Go for it." Simon declared, "This brought me back to the time when we fell in love with you. The last couple of weeks haven't been great, but tonight we have a competition."

Lee returned for the second round with Simon Fuller's pick: "Everybody Hurts." Randy told him, "That was definitely better. It started out pitchy, but you pulled it together. I liked that a lot better." Ellen agreed that he went off a couple of times, but added, "It is about the performance. You got really into it, but then you pulled back. I want to see more of that from you." Kara said, "What makes you great as a performer is you are accessible. It wasn't a perfect vocal, but I love that about you." Simon thought it was a brilliant choice of song, while concurring with Randy that Lee went off melody. "What I am feeling from you tonight is you are nervous," Simon said. "You have another song to come. You have to understand how this night can change your life. When you come out for your next performance, I want 10 out of 10."

Simon Fuller chose "Black Velvet" for Crystal's second song. Randy raved, "This is what I am talking about! This is what I fell in love with from day one. Mamasox is in it to win it." Ellen simply labeled the performance "fantastic," while Kara said, "Tonight is the night to give it your all … to kill yourself on that stage. You want it. You can tell." Simon explained, "I had a little bit of a problem because I am almost allergic to that song. I have heard it in auditions where people murdered it. I have to tell you … you took that song and you absolutely nailed it."

Crystal Bowersox

The third round began with Lee's performance of his potential single, "Beautiful Day." Randy commented, "Dude, once again it started out a little interesting, with you walking around the stage, because it is not what you do. But, by the middle of the song when you hit the high notes and the chords, you found your groove." Ellen told him, "Watching the process of [your growth] to where you are now … I was watching your eyes, you were fully present. I love that you were able to get to that place. You did a great job." Kara said, "I think you got swallowed up in that song. You had some good moments and some not good moments. You have grown the most on this show. You have one of the most commercial voices. You deserve to be here." Simon said, "You made the most of [the song]. This is my final time I am going to judge this show, so I want to say, 'You are what this competition was designed for: Someone who needs a break, who has a regular job working in a paint shop. You have remained a nice person. I wish the best for you."

The final song of the night was Crystal with "Up to the Mountain." Randy told her, "Culminating our ninth season on the show, with Simon's leaving, this is what the show is about: an amazing song by an amazing singer. This is one of your best performances at the perfect time. Incredible." Ellen pointed out, "You are always looking for someone unique. Someone we don't have. You are in a league of your own. You have a beautiful voice -- so clear and it pulls you in. If you make an album, I am going to buy it. You are just so good. I am so happy to be a part of witnessing the rise of your career." Kara said, "This was an important song tonight. My criticism has been that you had walls up. You were completely emotionally invested in that song, unlike any other night. You blossomed with that song." Simon joked, "This is becoming a bit of a love fest tonight. I thought that was the best performance and best song of the night. Since this is the last critique I am going to give, I just want to say that was outstanding."

"American Idol" returns Wednesday night at 8 p.m. with a two-hour finale during which the season nine winner will be named.

The Announcement by CLCT for Auditions for State Fair

State Fair Auditions
Auditions for the Canyon Lake Community Theatre’s fall production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “State Fair” will be held at the Lodge on June 1 from 4 to 8 p.m. Rodgers & Hammerstein’s only musical written directly for the screen is now a stage musical. Set against the colorful backdrop of an American heartland tradition, “State Fair” travels with the Frake family as they leave behind the routine of the farm for three days of adventure at the annual Iowa State Fair.

It’s a pleasant mid-summer in Iowa, where Abel and Melissa Frake are the parents of the teenage Margy and Wayne. Abel wants to enter his pig at the state fair and treats the porker like a king, lavishing more attention on the beast that his wife. Melissa is preparing her locally famous pickles and mincemeat, hoping to win a blue ribbon herself.

At the fair, Wayne falls for Emily, a dance-band singer, and Margy meets Pat, a newspaper reporter. After the obligatory romantic complications, Abel’s pig hogs the show, Melissa’s mincemeat is spiked with brandy and gets the judges tipsy enough to award her the prize, and the couples wind up happy. The story is as light as cotton candy, but everyone has such a good time and rural life seems so sweetly appealing that urbanites flocked to real state fairs after this movie was released.

Set to the magical strains of an Academy Award-winning score and augmented by other titles from the Rodgers and Hammerstein songbook, “State Fair” is the kind of warm-hearted family entertainment only Rodgers & Hammerstein could deliver!

Large singing-dancing ensemble consisting of barkers, vendors, judges and fairgoers, as well as many leads.

“We are extremely excited that Bo Linton is directing this wonderful show for our community,” says CLCT President Tish Doll. “Bo a newcomer to Canyon Lake but no stranger to showbiz.” Tish notes that Bo is an accomplished writer, director, actor and producer. He had a costarring part on the Hit NBC prime time series, “JAG.” Shortly after he portrayed Richard Carpenter on the acclaimed “E! True Hollywood Stories” series on “The Karen Carpenter Story.”

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Giraldi in the casting calls for the auditions

jake-and-vienna- red carpet auditions
Jake Pavelka may have laid his dancing shoes away but he’s still enjoying the perks Hollywood has to offer with his girl, Vienna Giraldi. Yesterday, Jake and Vienna be there for the red carpet premiere of “Letters to Juliet.” The Bachelor couple gave it two thumbs up and Jake chirruped afterward, that he thought his female fans would love the film.

Now that the couple has their whole life ahead of them, it’s reported they are taking a well needed holiday to Hawaii. Afterward, will they be headed back to Dallas to start their life together? Maybe.

If you follow the couple on Twitter, it seems Jake and Vienna has been bitten by the acting bug and they are both going out on casting calls. Vienna recently tweeted she did a photo shoot for Tyler Rose Swimwear and was going on an audition. Vienna, with her own star desires, would actually make a great pin up or bikini model. Would Jake mind? I think every guy has a Playboy or bikini model fantasy.

The next big step for the couple is wedding plans. Will they make it to the altar? They absolutely seem in love and since they both share Hollywood aspirations, they seem to be cosmically in refrain.

Astrologically, the next two years the stars will be shining bright for Jake an Aquarius and Vienna a Gemini. They need to take advantage of everything Hollywood has to offer now, otherwise their time could pass. If their smart, they will take ABC’s offer to get married on TV. What will they earn? If sources are correct, a cool million dollars. Not bad for the most important day in your life. Stay tuned.
