The world has fallen in love with a child prodigy named Jacob Velazquez who stole the show at a Harry Connick Jr. concert over the weekend by performing a complicated piano piece for his audience of around 3,500.
The 10-year-old was invited up on stage during Harry's show at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Sunday night (June 3rd 2018), where he stunned his audience with a jazz rendition of Chopin's 'Fantaisie Impromptu'. Jacob explained how he was autistic, but wasn't letting that stop him doing what he loves.

Hogarth Hughes is an intelligent young boy with a love of exploring. One day, his adventurous nature leads him to discover a colossal iron giant living in the forest having fallen from space. The robot appears to have the understanding of a child and thus finds himself vulnerable to the dangers of the earth and oblivious to his fate should the government find out about him. When Hogarth realises this and that the iron giant just wants to be his friend, he does everything within his power to keep him safe, even if that means lying to the government agents and army officials who come sniffing around for information. Hogarth is just 9-years-old, but he finds himself having to explain the way the world works to this confused creature, including mortality, sacrifice and the rules of right and wrong.

The contestants couldn't come to an agreement on this week's results night.
With five contestants left, it was time for a slight rule change. Did the producers lift that idea from The Hunger Games? We may never know. Anyway, the new rules stated that the five remaining contestants were allowed to either axe the finalist with the lowest votes or keep him/her, but face a tougher contest next week.
This week's lowest votes went to Sam Woolf.
Watch the emotional trailer below
Don’t expect anything new from the trailer for Dolphin Tale 2, but expect some heart-warming music, cute kids crying about animals, proud and determined parents and – of course – some plucky dolphins surviving against all odds. This family adventure is back for another round of dolphin tales, which are – again – based on a true story.
Winter the dolphin had his life-saved by Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Morgan Freeman) back in 2011. But now his elderly surrogate mother Panama has passed away, the determined non-fish needs a companion in order to comply with USDA regulations.
'Dolphin Tale' saw Sawyer Nelson and Dr. Clay Haskett save the life of a beached dolphin named Winter who was so badly injured, she needed a special prosthetic fin fitted in order to survive. She was thus housed in the Clearwater Marine Hospital with a motherly dolphin named Panama. However, following Panama's tragic passing, Winter's future could look very lonely indeed unless the staff at the hospital can find her a new friend to share her life with; an action that is stringently required lest she is moved to another aquarium. That's where Hope comes in; an incredibly tiny dolphin who the Clearwater staff have shipped over to join Winter. The question is, is Winter's heartbreak over Panama's death too much to deal with in spite of new company?

Don't cry out loud - Harry Connick Jr.'s opening words must have made the contestants quite anxious.
American Idol is just about to get good – this week finally ends the auditions round and the final 30 are revealed. First-time judge Harry Connick Jr. opened with a sobering message to the remaining constestants – don’t cry out loud. Connick told Idol hopefuls to stay calm, only he put it differently: "This is show business… suck it up," he told them.
Harry Connick Jr. began by giving contestants some harsh, but honest advice.
Then he and his fellow judges proceeded to whittle down the contestants to the final lineup, which includes the show’s very first openly gay participant in the outspoken MK Nobilette. Took them long enough. Anyway, here are some highlights from the night. Emily Piriz kicked things off behind the piano with "Stars" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, which earned her cheers from the audience, as well as judges Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez. Jillian Jensen, who might be familiar from her unsuccessful X Factor run, made it through auditions as well. Tuba player Malaya Watson provided some much needed quirkiness and also made the cut, as did Jess Meuse, beating Jesse Roach in a tense sing-off.
