Janel Parrish's DWTS Blog: You Pour Your Heart Out on the Dance Floor Every Week

Originally posted 11/17/2014 07:15AM

Janel Parrish is best known for playing Mona Vanderwaal on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars. She's been paired with pro Val Chmerkovskiy for season 19 of Dancing with the Stars, and she'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

The quickstep we performed last week was honestly one of my favorite dances we've done. I thought it was amazing. It was America's choice dance, so they chose everything down to our costumes and the song and the style, and at the end they wanted us to kiss, so we threw that in for America!

Even though Val had a little bit of a stumble during the dance, it didn’t throw us off at all. The poor thing, his patent leather shoes got stuck together, but we both just kept going and we were able to get back on track. I know Val felt really bad because of the slip, but I was like, "You're human! Sometimes humans slip. It's all good!"

Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern Is in a Band

Turns out, Cora Crawley can rock!

Though she plays the upper-crust aristocrat on Downton Abbey, in real life, Elizabeth McGovern spends her free time jamming with her folk/country band, Sadie and the Hotheads, and can be heard singing on the upcoming – wait for it – Christmas at Downton Abbey album, out Nov. 17. So what exactly does a Downton Abbey Christmas album sound like?

"It's just a really nice collection of Christmas songs done in a classical way, with the Budapest City orchestra and a beautiful choir," McGovern tells PEOPLE. And cast members singing! McGovern does a solo version of "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear," as well as a duet of "The First Noel" with fellow Downton cast mate Julian Ovenden who plays Charles Blake, one of Lady Mary's two new suitors. (Ovenden, a professional singer, has several other solo songs on the album.) Jim Carter, who plays Carson, does a spoken-word version of " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas."

It was a night of triumph and heartbreak on The Voice Wednesday, as 12 artists moved ahead and eight artists said goodbye during the first live elimination show of the seventh season.

America's votes saved the two top vote-getters on each team of five singers, which forced each of the four coaches to save just one of their three remaining artists.

The hour-long show moved along briskly and put Team Blake Shelton in the hot seat first.

The Voice: A Singer Brings the Coaches to Their Feet as Live Playoffs Continue

Originally posted 11/12/2014 08:15AM

Two weeks ago, scores of Voice viewers thought coach Pharrell Williams made a questionable choice when he shockingly decided to keep Elyjuh René over the highly praised Ricky Manning in the knockout rounds.

But on the second night of the live playoffs on Tuesday, the seeming wisdom of Williams's selection shone through when the California-based singer, 18, delivered an emotional rendition of "Latch" that had all four coaches on their feet.

"I can't believe what I just saw," gushed Adam Levine, whose team performed the previous night alongside Blake Shelton's five remaining artists. "Precisely perfect, soulful ... Pharrell has one of the strongest teams, and you just became the front-runner on one of the strongest teams."
