The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story Trailer Is Out – Watch It Now

Originally posted 08/08/2014 04:30PM

Hard-core Saved by the Bell fans have been waiting 20 years for this.

Lifetime has released the first glimpse from The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, but so far, there's nothing scandalous – the trailer depicts a normal group of teenagers dealing with hormones.

The clip shows the Elizabeth Berkley character (who played Jessie Spano) trying to de-escalate the competition between Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Tiffani Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski) for the attention of Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris), while Dustin Diamond (Screech Powers) tries to keep up with the physical prowess of Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater). And all the while, the six teens ignore adult direction – pretty much your average high school dynamic.

Diamond's 2009 book, Behind the Bell told of less-PG activities, like drug use and sex, but Lifetime claims their story is unrelated to the tell-all, and is instead based on new interviews with those associated with the show.

Somebody had to go home on Thursday's The X Factor results show, but it most certainly wasn't going to be Alex & Sierra.

America voted to send the pair – who wowed the judges Wednesday night with their flawless rendition of Sara Bareilles' "Gravity" – through to next week's finale.

"We just want to thank everybody that's voted. This is incredible," a humble Alex said upon hearing the news, while the group's mentor, Simon Cowell, gushed about the talented singers.

"I think they've been incredible to work with," he said. "They've gotten better every single week and the finale would not be the same without them."

The X Factor: A Bad Night for Demi Lovato and Her Team

Originally posted 12/06/2013 08:40AM

It's hard enough for The X Factor judges to say goodbye to one of their contestants during an elimination show, but on Thursday night Demi Lovato was devastated when her two remaining team members – Ellona Santiago and Rion Paige – were eliminated.

"I'm actually pretty speechless and disappointed," said an upset Lovato after learning that Santiago, 17, would be the first contestant going home. "She could've won this competition."

Lovato wasn't the only one who was shaken by Santiago's elimination. Fellow judge Kelly Rowland looked surprised, with her eyes and mouth opening wide and her hand placed on her heart as she stared at Santiago in disbelief.

Host Mario Lopez's voice also softened as he said it was "a real shock here on the stage and in the audience."

The X Factor: Shocking Double Elimination Proves No One Is Safe

Originally posted 11/29/2013 09:10AM

On Wednesday's episode of The X Factor, judges Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio all agreed that contestant Lillie McCloud's crowd-pleasing performance of "Summertime" was the best she'd ever done and gave the 54-year-old singer a standing ovation.

But the lone holdout – Simon Cowell – remained seated. "For me, it was just all a little bit too contained … too thought out," he complained. "It wasn't raw enough for me."

It seemed that viewers agreed with Cowell, as McCloud received the lowest number of votes and was the first act to leave the competition during Thursday's double elimination. And while host Mario Lopez noted there was "shock here in the audience," McCloud took the news well, expressing gratitude for the opportunity.
