Monday was President Barack Obama's Inauguration Day — but at one moment during the ceremony, it was President Bill Clinton who inadvertently stole the spotlight.

President Barack Obama was sworn in for a second term as 44th President of the United States Monday, in a star-studded ceremony that looked toward the country's future as much as it paid tribute to long-established ceremonies.
Well it's official. Allison Janney can do everything. Act. Sing. Ice skate with Smurfs. Hell, she even makes Mr. Sunshine watchable.

"It was the most surreal experience of my life," Allison Janney says of dueting with five-time Grammy winner James Taylor for Mr. Sunshine's March 16 episode. The singer guest stars on the ABC comedy as Billy, the ex-husband of Janney's Crystal. Turns out the exes had a lounge act and reunite to sing Leon Russell's "A Song For You," which Janney says "is probably one of the hardest songs to sing for someone who hadn't sung since stepping off the 9 to 5 stage over a year earlier."
According to Allison Janney, it only took one line of dialogue to convince her to return to series television after a four-year absence.
"'Have you seen a small white pill with some Spanish written on it?'" she said, quoting her Mr. Sunshine character. "I read the first line that Crystal said and I knew I was going to play it."
After playing White House press secretary (and later Chief of Staff) C.J. Cregg on The West Wing for six seasons, the 51-year-old actress says she was looking for a role as far from the morally upright C.J. as possible. Crystal is the pill-popping, narcissistic owner of an arena and the boss of Ben (Matthew Perry), who seems to be going through something of a...

American IdolI much prefer Gedeon's singing to his odd speaking voice. Once again he made the perfect song choice, as did Chris, who wasn't as impressive as last week but was still on top of the heap. I loved when Chris admitted that he used to have Ryan Seacrest-style hair but shaved it all off when he started going bald. The shrieking you heard was Ryan falling off the stage after facing his worst nightmare.
Kevin mentioned his love for Kanye West and then went on to perform one of the blandest, most milquetoast '70s songs ever created. Way to prove your street cred, Chicken Little. I always hum "Vincent" when I think of Kanye — doesn't everyone? Bucky remained in his country-song safety zone with
Question: Who sang the theme song for The Golden Girls?
Answer: Cynthia Fee sang an abbreviated version of Andrew Gold's "Thank You for Being a Friend" for the show, which, as you know, ran on NBC from 1985-92 and starred Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty as four seniors living in Miami.
The song was a Top 25 hit from Gold's 1978 album, All This and Heaven Too. The singer-songwriter (a term popularized when you needed to do at least one to have a career in the music business) had a previous Top 5 hit with "Lonely Boy" in 1976 and, putting in time as a producer, studio musician and songwriter for others, has worked with such notable talent as Linda Ronstadt, Karla Bonoff, James Taylor, Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, Jackson Browne, Don Henley, Dia
Question: I have two commercial-related questions. First, there is a MasterCard commercial I saw recently, with adults in a rather unique candy store. The song playing is the Willy Wonka tune "Pure Imagination," but it's performed by a modern group. Could you please tell me what group performs this version? The other question is about the ads for Dove cookies and ice cream. I say that the actress in the ads is Minnie Driver, but my wife thinks it is just someone who looks a lot like her. Could you please settle this? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Answer: Hey, as James Taylor once sang in an oh-so-mellow fashion, that's why I'm here, Patrick.
Don't know if you'll be happy with what I have to tell you, however. First off, the MasterCard ad you're referring to, "Candy Store," featured a version of the Wonka song specially commissioned for the commerc
She's chronicled her romantic angst in song since the '70s, but Carly Simon has always left a piece of her heart in the '30s and '40s. As proof, the 60-year-old singer and songwriter is releasing her fourth CD of standards, Moonlight Serenade, on July 19. We visited the Oscar and Grammy winner at her Greenwich Village duplex in a historic town house.
TV Guide: Moonlight Serenade has a very intimate, mellow feel.
Carly Simon: Our intention was an album that you could make out to. [Laughs]
TV Guide: You actually knew some legendary composers.
Simon: Yes. Arthur Schwartz ("Dancing in the Dark") was my parents' [Simon & Schuster publisher Richard Simon and his wife Andrea] best friend. Oscar Hammerstein was a close friend of theirs, too. I have a personal feeling about these songs.
TV Guide: Can you feel as passionate about these songs as you do about your own?
