Elton John, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Blake Shelton and Kobe Bryant are among more than 65 stars who have signed on for "The Red Nose Day Special."

The charity event, set to air Thursday, May 26 (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC, raises money for children in need in the United States and around the world.

They join previously announced participants like Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Black and Paul Rudd. The special will be hosted by Craig Ferguson.

The special will feature Roberts’ recent trip to Phoenix to visit projects that take care of children who are facing serious health issues without the means to afford basic medical treatment, according to a news release from NBCUniversal.

It will also feature rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges visiting a food bank in Atlanta at a school where 50 percent of the students are living below the poverty line.

There will be plenty of music during the special, with John and Shelton set to perform special songs. Paul Shaffer will be on hand as musical director of the Red Nose Orchestra. 

“The Red Nose Day Special” also will bring the laughs, with Tracy Morgan, Jay Pharaoh and Sarah Silverman among the many comedians scheduled to appear.

Red Nose Day has raised more than $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. It launched in the U.S. in 2015 as a special day to come together, have fun and make a difference for kids who are most in need.

In its inaugural year in America, more than $23 million was raised for the Red Nose Day Fund, with the money now at work in all 50 states across America and 15 countries through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated.

People are encouraged to get involved, have fun and raise money by buying red noses sold exclusively at Walgreens, organizing fundraising events and watching and donating during the television special.

<![CDATA[Surprise From 'Avengers' Stars]]> Tue, 24 May 2016 10:55:03 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/Ryan-Wilcox-Visit-IMG_2231.jpg

A San Diego teenager who is battling cancer welcomed Captain America, Iron Man and Pepper Potts into his home, just two weeks after his classmates stood behind him in support.

Ryan Wilcox, 18, is a Grossmont High School student who is also a die-hard "Captain America" and "Avengers" fan.

In a video played at the school May 6, Chris Evans offered Wilcox well wishes and told him to "stay strong."

The clip not only went viral but prompted "Avengers" co-star Gwyneth Paltrow to suggest a trip to San Diego.

The trip became a reality Monday when Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the "Avengers" movies; Evans, who portrays Captain America; and Robert Downey Jr., also known as Iron Man, showed up on the Wilcox family's doorstep.

"I saw this car pull up and I saw them walking. I was just like — what?" Ryan told NBC 7's Greg Bledsoe in an interview Monday.

The stars spent some time with Ryan in his room and even signed his wall. They left behind souveniers and a lot of memories.

"We're all a little numb. I knew for a couple days it was gonna happen but until you see them walk through that door, you don't know how you're going to feel. And they just were awesome. They didn't want cameras, they wanted to do it quietly," said Ryan's mom, Amy Wilcox. "They came into our home, sat on our couches and just visited with us."

She said the trio sat down with the family and just talked.

A Missouri teen just seriously raised the bar for prom fashion by re-creating Beyoncé’s famed Met Gala look on a high school budget.

India Ross, of St. Louis, told Cosmopolitan she’s "always loved" Beyoncé, and when she saw the superstar’s flesh-colored Givenchy gown, she knew that was the way she wanted to show up to her senior prom.

The 18-year-old took the idea to a local designer, Toi Hall, with what started as a simple request.

"When I gave my designer my money I said: Can you make me feel like I'm Beyoncé? And that's what she did," Ross said in a one-on-one interview with Cosmo.

The designer used mesh material to give the same see-through appearance and found jewels at cost-friendly Michaels Craft Store, Ross told the magazine.

But it wasn’t that simple, Ross warned, telling Cosmo that even her designer was at moments overwhelmed with the time-consuming project.

"You can't just place rhinestones anywhere because it would have looked a mess," she said in the interview with Cosmo. "Prom was the most stressful process ever."

But in the end it was worth it, because her prom photos quickly garnered national attention, spawning features on Huffington Post, Bravo TV, Mashable, "On-Air With Ryan Seacrest," Buzzfeed and UsWeekly, to name a few.

"I did not expect for it to blow up like this. It's been wild," Ross told Cosmo.

It should come as no surprise that the St. Louis native has her sight sets on working in the world of fashion, telling Cosmopolitan she is headed for Chicago’s Columbia College to double major in fashion business and fashion merchandising while minoring in public relations and marketing.

<![CDATA['Frozen' Star Responds to #GiveElsaAGirlfriend]]> Mon, 23 May 2016 13:49:49 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/idina_menzel.jpg

The voice behind Elsa in "Frozen" has weighed in on a recent social media campaign that seeks a girlfriend for the ice princess' second movie installment.

“I think it’s great,” Broadway actress Idina Menzel told Entertainment Tonight from the 2016 Billboard Music Awards red carpet. “Disney’s just gotta contend with that. I’ll let them figure that out.”

Alexis Isabel Moncada, 17, created #GiveElsaAGirlfriend to send a strong message. The Floridian used Twitter to encourage Disney to give Elsa a same-sex partner in the forthcoming 'Frozen' sequel. 

"We see princes and princesses, beasts and women, women and frogs ... yet no women who love other women? If we're going to displace a group of people because it's inappropriate — then so is seeing every other relationship," Moncada told NBC News. 

The debate is on whether Elsa should have a girlfriend or a boyfriend.

[[238904721, C]]

In response to the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign, a Citizen Go petition, #CharmingPrinceForElsa, was started to promote a perfect man for Elsa. The charming prince campaign has garnered 206,000 electronic signatures in just over a week. 

Menzel says playing the character was life changing and that she supports whatever Disney decides, according to ET.

"Frozen" is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. A release date has not been set for its sequel.

<![CDATA[Bob Dylan's Back Pages]]> Tue, 24 May 2016 10:51:26 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/213*120/dylan1.jpg

The 1992 concert celebrating Bob Dylan's 30th show business anniversary featured a star-filled rendition of "My Back Pages." The likes of Neil Young, Tom Petty and George Harrison traded verses and shared the classic chorus: "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."

The song, first recorded by Dylan at age 23, provided a perfect fit to mark the middle age of a music icon. It might seem like an equally appropriate soundtrack as the American troubadour turns 75 Tuesday.

But summing up a landmark birthday in a half-century-old song feels too pat for pop's poet of paradox. Dylan and his music are tangled up in contradictions, no easier to get a handle on now than when he was a young folk singer out of Minnesota making his mark in Greenwich Village. 

That's the way he apparently wants it. Dylan's forged a career upon defiance – from penning seminal protest songs to going electric to bucking traditional definitions of age. He thrives on upending expectations: The great anti-establishment voice of the 1960s now makes commercials (including a new take on "Forever Young" with will.i.am for Pepsi in 2009 and a more recent spot for IBM) and even released an album of songs associated with Frank Sinatra last year.

Dylan delights, perhaps most of all, in defying his own legacy, touring constantly and turning selection from his songbook into unrecognizable growls – all while producing new recordings, originals and covers alike. (His just-released album, “Fallen Angels,” offers another collection of primarily Sinatra-inspired standards. Check out Dylan’s sweet-and-smoky take on “All the Way.”)

Dylan, who lives by the credo of "don't look back" (even if he’s one memoir into a purportedly three-volume set), primarily focuses on the pages yet to be written.

Perhaps best was to commemorate his birthday is to forgo both over-analyzing and looking for easy answers – in the wind or elsewhere – and embrace the enigma that is Bob Dylan, who tries, by often inscrutable example, to get us to grow up without growing old.

<![CDATA['SNL': Larry David Returns for One Last Dance]]> Mon, 23 May 2016 07:58:53 -0500 http://media.nbcdfw.com/images/208*120/Clinton+Sanders+SNL+Waltz.png

Larry David returned to Studio 8H for one last waltz with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. 

The "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star made what perhaps could be his last appearance playing Bernie Sanders as "Saturday Night Live" breaks for the summer and the primary season draws to a close. 

As the real Clinton continues to lead in the race for the Democratic nomination, despite Sanders’ recent winning streak, the strained relationship between the candidates was lampooned in the show's cold open.

The sketch played out in a bar, where Kate McKinnon's Hillary Clinton engages in bar talk over beers with a defiant Sanders.

"I've done it! I've won the nomination!" McKinnon's Clinton said to the bartender, played by cast member Kenan Thompson. "I mean, no I haven't, and I keep losing states, but mathematically, I've done it!"

When the bartender announces "last call," David's Sanders refuses to leave, saying: "It’s not over 'til I say it’s over." 

"I didn’t see you sitting behind me, so far behind me you can never catch up,” Clinton quipped.

The Vermont senator joins Clinton at the bar and orders "something revolutionary...that people are flocking to.” Clinton chooses something "no one likes but will get the job done,” and the two begin to reminisce about the bitter campaign and reveal their deepest secrets.

"I dream about being a fancy millionaire or billionaire," Sanders says. "And I say fancy things like 'I'll have a tuna sandwich on a croissant.'"

"You know the presidency? I really, really want it," McKinnon's Clinton responds.

Clinton then asks him to dance, even offering up three superdelegates to a reluctant Sanders. The two waltz out the bar to the tune of Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flower" from "The Nutcracker," and through the "SNL" studio before Clinton says goodbye to Sanders by pushing him into an elevator.   

The show was hosted by "SNL" alum Fred Armisen who, presiding over the end of the 41st season, recalled his own beginnings on the show many years before.

"'SNL' is a very important place for me,” Armisen said, noting that his career began when he was cast for the show. “I owe everything to this place.”

He recalled his story by acting out his Long Island hometown denizens mocking his show business aspirations. But after a successful audition that included a Prince impression, his neighbors were proud of him. 

Armisen was joined in the season ender by several of his former castmates, including Andy Samberg, who starred in a new Lonely Island digital short about a sexual fetish involving Osama bin Laden. 

The show continued to echo current events on "Weekend Update" where Maya Rudolph made a special guest appearance as Brazil’s embattled President Dilma Rousseff. 

Rudolph’s Rousseff rejected the impeachment tag, calling it a "retirement" where she "make relax."

"I drink caipirinhas, enjoy Guaraná, moqueca de camarão, feijoada, brigadeiro,” Rousseff boasts.

Asked whether Brazil was ready to hold the 2016 Summer Olympics, Rousseff said, "No. But we just have to take 1 million poops out of waters and build all the buildings.”

With the Olympics set to begin in August, co-anchor Colin Jost seemed alarmed that the structures needed for the games weren’t ready.

“It’s fine. It's what you call B.Y.O.B – bring your own buildings,” Rudolph responded.

The show, and with it the season, concluded with Armisen and the "SNL" crew showing off their musical abilities with a honky-tonk about summertime in Fayetteville.

Superstar DJ and producer Calvin Harris was among two people injured following a head-on car crash in Studio City Friday night, Los Angeles police said.

Harris was a passenger in an SUV traveling in the 3500 block of Coldwater Canyon Boulevard around 11 p.m. when the collision occurred, according to the LAPD.

Police said a vehicle with three juveniles inside crossed over the center divider and crashed into the SUV.

Harris suffered a cut to his nose and was taken to a hospital. He was released shortly after.

The driver from the other vehicle involved was ejected from the car and suffered a broken pelvis, police said. 

The Scottish DJ, who is dating singer Taylor Swift, was headed to the airport for a flight to Las Vegas — where he was scheduled to perform Friday night at Omnia — when the collision occurred, according to a statement on his Facebook page. Harris was not able to perform as a result of the crash. 

No other injuries were reported.

Police said no drugs or alcohol were involved. The crash was under investigation.
