ABC Is Developing a "Boy Band" Singing Competition Show 

Just when we thought America was cooling off on singing competition shows, ABC is developing a reality show called "Boy Band", which is going to assemble the next ONE DIRECTION, theoretically.

SIMON COWELL threw the guys in One Direction together while they were competing on Britain's "X Factor", and this will work in a similar way, with viewers voting individual singers into one final group.

There's no word on any judges or hosts, but they should be announced soon, because it's premiering sometime THIS summer. 


The Texas Rangers Sealed a New Deal with Their Second Baseman By Throwing in Two Horses 

Back in the Old West, every Texas Ranger needed a good horse, but does that also apply to the Texas Rangers BASEBALL TEAM in 2017?

Yesterday, the Rangers signed their second baseman ROUGNED ODOR to a new six-year, $49.5 million contract.  And to seal the deal, they threw in TWO HORSES. 

He has four horses back at home in Venezuela where he’s a full-on Venezuelan cowboy and rancher.  He loves animals, so clearly Texas is the IDEAL spot for him. 

The Rangers wanted to make sure he knew he was the ideal guy for them too, so they tossed in two "elite" horses for him to have here in the U.S. 

Would You Pay $2,000 to Tour Graceland and Watch an Acoustic Set by Joe Walsh? 

If you're a huge fan of ELVIS and JOE WALSH, it might be a dream weekend for you.

Joe is playing an intimate, acoustic set at Graceland during the weekend of May 6th.  Well, technically, he's playing the new hotel across the street, which is called the Guest House at Graceland. 

The concert includes a Q&A session, a photo op, an autographed photo of him, a tour of Graceland, an exclusive laminate and lanyard, and both a welcome and after party. 

How much would you pay for a 3-day, 2-night weekend at Graceland that included all this?  How about $2,000?  Yes, it's 2K for one person in a single occupancy room.  If you do double occupancy, it's $1,795 per person.
