tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC November 12, 2014 11:35pm-12:37am PST
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- mike myers. from "beyond the light," gugu mbatha-raw. "do you have what it takes?" and music from tears for fears. with cleto and the cletones. and now, on top of all that, here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: hi there, everyone. i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the
show. thank you for watching. and thank you for coming. i'm glad you're here. i caught a piece of confetti on the way out. came in, a piece of confetti floating through the air and i seized it like kung-fu seizes a fly with chop sticks. very important things going on today. not the least of which is kim kardashian's butt. have you seen the cover of "p e "paper" magazine? i guess that's real. it says break the internet. the editor of the magazine said we gave ourselves one assignment. break the internet. they may not have broken the internet, but they definitely put a crack in it. [ laughter ] put that up again. i tell you something -- all i can think when i look at this picture is, great, now we're out of cocoa butter. [ laughter ] right? she doesn't have to send out a
christmas card now, right? that's enough. this is also notable. this morning, the european space agency landed a probe on a comet 317 million miles from earth, which is where we are right now. this is the culmination of a ten-year mission. this is a photograph of the members of the european space agency. you can see, they're overjoyed. he's smiling like that because not only was the mission accomplished, he finally got to touch a woman. [ laughter ] when you start to get discouraged by how much attention everyone pains to kim kardashian's buttocks, remember, there are also people out there that know how to land a spacecraft on aw fñ moving come7 million miles away. they're out there. [ applause ] yesterday was veterans day. there were a lot of celebrations across the country. there was a big concert on hbo called concert for valor. the local nbc affiliate in
washington, d.c. was on the ground. to give us a sense of what it was like to be there in person. >> just 30 minutes to go before a massive concert to honor our nation's veterans. wendy's been there all afternoon and will be there all night soaking in the music. wendy, how is it going right now? >> oh, it's starting to feel like a concert, door read. we just got our first whiff of marijuana. [ applause ] >> jimmy: i don't know about you, doreen, but i am high as a kite right now. [ laughter ] here's something i found interesting. this morning, "good morning america" had a story about a new study that looked into why some people are good dancers and some people are bad dancers. which is interesting, right? some people are just naturally good at it. but what i found most fascinating about the report is the specific examples they used to illustrate this research. >> from elaine on "seinfeld" to kevin james's character on
"hitch," some just dance to the beat 0 of their own drum. bad dancing may just be in the gene. the new study calls it beat duffness. some people were able to move in time to the beat, but couldn't sync up after a change in tempo. the study shows many beat deaf people don't even know how bad they are. ♪ all the single ladies >> they may think they're dancing like beyonce, but may actually look more like jimmy kimmel. ♪ and nobody wants that. >> jimmy: what do you mean nobody wants that? how dare you. [ cheers and applause ] how double dare you. i open myself to the beauty of dance and they slap me right across the face. thank you, "good morning america." unfortunately, my morning was not so good. more like bad morning america. thank you for your false concern. [ laughter ] this is very cute. i doubt the crew at "gma" will
attack this. this is a video of a 1-year-old girl who appears to be quite enchanted with her musical birthday card. ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: she's officially the only person who has ever liked one of those cards. [ laughter ] this is crazy. there was a bizarre incident here in hollywood on monday night during a screening at the afi film festival. according to the story, a woman in the theater right across the street from us was youring her phone during a movie. another movie goer politely asked her to stop. she refused to stop. she continued to text. the phone was bright, so the guy tapped her on the shoulder and asked her again to turn her phone off and after a standoff, during which she turned the
flashlight on the phone and shined it in his face, she then went through her purse, found some mace and sprayed him with it. she maced him. and then salt back dot back dow watched the movie as if nothing happened. what goes on -- she using her phone during a movie and then ma maces someone who asked her to stop? are we sure this wasn't the devil returning to the earth? and maybe the best part of all of it, the movie is called "mr. turner." it's a historical drama about a painter from the 1800s. not exactly "fast and furious 3." so, be careful. the lesson here is, just let people do whatever they want. sharon osbourne has announced that the one-time enormously popular reality show "the osbournes" is coming back to television. i don't know if it's coming back to mtv, but they are planning to do eight episodes. sharon said ozzie said he looked back on his life and he wished he could have done the show when he was clean and sober.
well, maybe he does, but -- [ laughter ] we don't. we want a funny show. nobody wants to see oz see zie treadmill eating yogurt. another big reality tv show, randy jackson is leaving "american idol." randy jackson has been on>0hñ "american idol" for 13 seasons. he's the only original judge who is still on the show. and that's -- it's a big deal because in hollywood, usually the black guy is the first to go. [ laughter ] the dog will be sent to a farm in the country where he can run and play. at least that's what they're telling the kids. as a thank you for his many years of service, i thought this was nice. protus deucers gave him a beautiful gold watch ridiculous pair of nonprescription glasses to wear. [ laughter ] by the way, what's the long-term plan for a show? how many idols do we need? i think 20 is enough, right? "american idol" used to be a huge deal. but the show that's taking over is a show that i produced. we premiered the first
installment last week, it's called "do you have what it t e takes?" you know, there are so many -- [ cheers and applause ] thank you. the applause sign go on? all right. anyway, there's so many competition shows out there, some are for singing, some are for dancing. bull but my show doesn't involve singing or dancing. we just want to find someone who has what it takes. we put an ad on craigslist, inviting people to audition. this is how they do it, by the way. that's how they get these people for these shows. we got 100 responses. they had no idea what they were getting too. they just showed up to audition for me. all they knew, we were looking for people who have what it takes. last week was round one of the auditions. now, we ring the bell for round two of the new show everybody is buzzing about, "do you have what it takes?" we're looking for somebody who has hit. >> i have talent.
>> jimmy: that's not what we're looking for. >> give me some of your chocolate. >> it's not a singing competition. >> do you have what it takes? >> hell no. >> usually i like to do sauces for pastas. >> jimmy: you're going to the next round. ♪ do you have what it takes >> pretty dramatic, isn't it? i'm kenny mayne, your host at the lowe's hotel of hollywood, california. this is day two of the preliminary round. to advance, the remaining contenders would need to make a strong impression. up first -- >> hello, ladies. >> identical twins with an unbreakable bound. >> i know that we will always stick together in life. we'll always help each other any way we can. >> we're identical twins from indiana. just moved out to l.a.

stick together in life. >> it's okay. >> jimm >> we can't all have what it takes. here's another person who might or might not. >> wow. hello there. >> all right. hi. >> jimmy: hi. >> i'm tyler lord hamilton. >> jimmy: tyler lord hamilton. >> yes. and i'm creating emotional dialogue and lehealing for my o psyche. >> jimmy: i see, okay, all right, show us that you have what it takes. >> i need to plug this guy in. >> jimmy: okay, all right. ♪ i am your strength

and back and beyond again. >> jimmy: is that a yes or a no? >> no. >> jimmy: it's a no? i'm going to have to say no, too, tyler. i'm sorry. >> thanks for sharing, though, dude. >> is that the end? >> jimmy: that's the end. >> all right, great. >> jimmy: you do have to leave. >> okay. >> here comes carter now from canada. carter, seriously, what's your problem? >> no problem whatsoever. i'm stoked in every capacity. my strategy is to stop, look and listen. the entire time. it's a figure of speech i picked up as a young kid. but it has always stuck with me. i'm going to be the best me i can possibly be. that's the one thing that makes any person extraordinary to the core. >> jimmy: look at this. >> let me take the glasses off so you can see more. how's it going? >> good. >> jimmy: tell us about yourself. >> i love to walk backwards.
i walked 100 miles backwards in arizona once upon a time. >> can you show us? >> yeah, basically, hopefully i'm not running into anybody, but just watch random little backwards, just through town. >> jimmy: look at that. he is walking backwards. >> and talking. >> it was a blast. i wish you guys were there to see it. >> well, carter, we're looking for, you know, someone who has what it takes. what do you think three things you have that you share in common with a shooting star? >> oh, wow, a strong mind. a powerful personage. and an unforgettable aura. i believe i have those three. >> very cool. you have great energy. >> thank you. i put the pow in power and i stay nillic. >> jimmy: what does that mean? >> that's chillin spelled backyards. it's being the best you can post bl bly be. >> jimmy: malcolm? >> i think there is a line
between confidence and delusion, but i would like to see -- i would like to see him again. >> thank you. >> i love not only how you have what it takes, but i like how you use it. >> jimmy: chilli? >> definitely. >> appreciate you guys. that's awesome. >> jimmy: the judges have ruled and you're going through. you have what it takes. >> right on. awesome. thank you guys. appreciate you. >> jimmy: all right. at the very least, it means the entire universe and beyond to me. i love it here. >> and another person is one backwards step closer to his dream. >> jimmy: we have some big decisions ahead here. i have to say, for me, i don't note about you guys, but i feel like this is the biggest decision of my life. >> on the next "do you have what it takes?" >> jimmy: we're going to give you 30 seconds to prove to us that you've got what it takes.

[ applause ] that would be the strong move. so, how do you know oprah? >> well, it was actually, you know, i met her a few months ago. my movie which came out in the spring, she saw it and it was a crazy story, because i was actually -- she does this 21-day meditation series online with deepak chopra. you log in, you do 20 minutes of meditation each day. i had been doing this meditation series every day and so she introduces it, she's like, hi everyone, it's oprah, and you meditate for 20 minutes. i've been doing it on 21 days. on the 22 day, i get this call and it's like an unknown number on my phone. i was like, oh, not going to answer that. so, i ignored it. i listened to the voicemail and it's like, hi, gugu, it's oprah. and then there was like a pause,
for like three beats and then it was like -- winwinfrey. i missed this call from oprah, i freaked out. the weirdest thing is, i had been listening to her every morning. >> jimmy: you summoned her. your incantation -- >> i brought her into my life. i was so used to her, you know, i sort of listened to the voicemail for a little bit before i was like, oh, my god, this is personalized. >> jimmy: the machine calling you. wow. >> anyway, then i freaked out because i couldn't call her back because it was an unknown number. >> jimmy: she didn't leave her number, of course not. oprah's not going to leave her number. because it might not be you on the other line. >> exactly, exactly. i just melt met gayle king, i was like, oh, my god, oprah called me, get her to call me back. she called back and basically invited me to the best lunch i've ever had at her house. >> jimmy: really? the food was the best lunch or
the company was the best lunch? >> everything. i mean, you know, she lives in this gorgeous place -- >> jimmy: i don't believe that. [ laughter ] >> to give you a little clue. it's called the promised land. >> jimmy: it has a name. when your house has a name, that's a big thing. >> pretty cool. it was lovely. to celebrate the movie and she loved the film so much and i just think that she just wanted to kind of cheerlead for it. >> jimmy: wow. that is fantastic. that meditation really works. [ laughter ] so -- >> i recommend it. >> jimmy: now you play -- you play a singer and, very big, like a very pular singer. are you a singer and do you do this sort of thing? >> well, you know, i mean, my character in the movie, she's sort of part of the hip hop world, and i sort of grew up more on musical theater and ballet, so, it was a bit of a transition, kind of, going from that classical training to this more sort of sexually aggressive kind of hip hop world. but you know, it's been a great experience, you know, working with the dream, who is the music
producer. >> jimmy: oh, right. >> all the music for my character. >> jimmy: that's nice. >> yeah. working with him in the studio was kind of -- >> jimmy: a dream. >> well, you know what, it was kind of like a dream, because, you know, he's very much a night owl. i think music hours are much later than kind of film set hours and my first time in front of the microphone was at, like, 2:00 a.m. i was kind of trying to stay awake. >> jimmy: well, when you're with the dream, you have to come at night. that's when they come. >> exactly. i think that's the style. but it was incredible working with him and, i learned so much. and my character kind of goes on this huge transition from this very artificial kind of pop act, you know, to kind of learning to be more authentic and who she is really. >> jimmy: i see. very nice to meet you. and now i know one person named gugu, so, i'm going to -- not oprah but i'm on my way.
