After more than 60 years, Alvin and The Chipmunks are more successful than ever garnering more than two billion dollars across their number one songs, platinum selling albums, top television series, Prime Time Specials, Grammy awards, Emmy nominations, and four blockbuster motion pictures.

Ross Bagdasarian Sr. first introduced Alvin and The Chipmunks in 1958 on the novelty record “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late!),” which sold 4.5 million copies in seven weeks and has gone on to become one of the most popular Christmas songs of all time 

The Chipmunks first appeared on television in 1961 with “The Alvin Show”, which was one of the first Prime Time animated television series to air on national television. In 1981, The Chipmunks’ Prime Time television special, “A Chipmunk Christmas” aired on NBC and was seen by more than 35 million people, becoming a Holiday perennial. The success of the Christmas special led to a Saturday morning TV series, “Alvin & The Chipmunks”, which aired on NBC from 1983 to 1991, becoming one of the top rated shows in all of children’s programming. Not only did this series feature Alvin, Simon and Theodore, but also it introduced their female counterparts The Chipettes – Brittany, Eleanor and Jeanette.

The show was nominated for five Emmy Awards, was seen by more than 15 million people a week and has been broadcast in over 100 countries around the world.

Given the success of the franchise, The Chipmunks and Chipettes were redesigned for the brand new CG animated television series, ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks. Created, written, designed and directed by Janice Karman, the series launched Spring 2015 and continues to garner top ratings around the world, including on Nickelodeon in the U.S., attracting over 42 million viewers per week in the U.S. alone. The show has already received broadcast orders for five seasons comprising (260) 11-minute episodes.

Kelly Clarkson will be back to host the 2019 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, airing May 1, 2019.

Los Angeles, Calif. – Kelly Clarkson is back for some more BBMA action. The songstress will be returning to host the 2019 Billboard Music Awards for a second time, NBC announced Thursday (Feb. 28). 

Kelly Clarkson will be returning to host the 2019 Billboard Music Awards for a second time. The 2019 Billboard Music Awards will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will broadcast live on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 p.m. EST/PST. Photo/ NBC

“I had so much fun hosting the ‘Billboard Music Awards’ last year that I’m back for more,” Clarkson said in a statement. “We’re turning it up a notch this year and I can’t wait to celebrate all of my fellow amazing artists for another unforgettable night of live music.”  

Clarkson, who released her eighth studio album, Meaning of Life, in 2017, is no stranger to the Billboard charts. She has 27 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart so far, including 11 top 10s. Three of those top 10s grabbed the No. 1 spot, including “A Moment Like This,” “My Life Would Suck Without You” and “Stronger [What Doesn’t Kill You].” She also has three No. 1s on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with 10 entries total.

Still time to see ‘Pompeii: The Exhibition’ at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum now showing through April 21, 2019.

Simi Valley, Calif. – There is still time to see Pompeii: The Exhibition at Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, now through April 21, 2019. The incredible exhibit features over 150 authentic artifacts on loan from the renowned Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy.  These are not replicas, but rather original, 2,000-year-old objects that were preserved in the ash.  These artifacts include wall-sized frescos, marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, ancient Roman coins, and full body casts of the volcano’s victims.LEARN MORE

Around mid-morning on August 24, 79 A.D., Mount Vesuvius erupted.  Molten rock and pumice was expelled from Mt. Vesuvius at a rate of 1.5 million tons per second.  Rocks and volcanic ash filled the atmosphere, turning day into night.  Within 24 hours, the Roman city of Pompeii lay destroyed – and perfectly preserved – under 15 feet of ash and volcanic debris.  It is estimated that about 16,000 people died in the eruption.

In 1748 when explorers examined the site, they found that the volcanic ash had acted as a preservative, and many of the buildings and even the skeletons and remnants of city life were still intact. This city frozen in time provided historians with a glimpse into what life was like in ancient Rome.

Pompeii: The Exhibition, opening October 6, 2018 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, features over 150 authentic artifacts on loan from the renowned Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy.  These are not replicas, but rather original, 2,000-year-old objects that were preserved in the ash.  These artifacts include wall-sized frescos, marble and bronze sculptures, jewelry, ancient Roman coins, and full body casts of the volcano’s victims.

These artifacts, set in scenic depictions of their original surroundings, tell the tale of the bustling city of Pompeii, hidden from view and forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago. The catastrophic power of volcanoes is also illustrated through an immersive CGI experience of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The impact and devastation is evidenced by full body casts (plaster casts made from the hollows left in the ash that hardened around the now disintegrated bodies of the victims, found upon excavation), eerily preserved in their final moments.“5 stars for the Pompeii special exhibit – It was a fascinating peek into the lives of the people before Mt. Vesuvius erupted and the aftermath of the explosion.” – Karen W; Yelp Reviewer

EXHIBITION HIGHLIGHTS

The exhibition’s media-rich, immersive experience transports visitors back in time to 79 A.D. where they will embark on a journey through the ancient city, culminating with the fateful morning of the eruption. They will learn how Pompeii was a bustling commercial port and strategic military and trading center, while its neighbor Herculaneum, also buried by Vesuvius, was an exclusive Mediterranean resort. Artifacts bring this world to life as visitors discover how its people lived, loved, worked and worshipped.

Included among the more than 150 authentic artifacts are: mosaics and frescoes, gladiator armor, weapons, a ship’s anchor, ceramics, plates, furniture, jewelry, medical instruments and tools.

A simulated 4-D Eruption Theater experience allows visitors to experience the devastating impact Mount Vesuvius had on Pompeii, culminating in the reveal of full body casts of twisted human forms, asphyxiated by extreme heat and noxious gases.“This exhibit was the next best thing to a trip abroad. Fascinating artifacts with strong explanations as to the background of the items. Video to enhance the exhibits was professionally produced and educational. There was a 4-D movie experience that was phenomenal.” – Joanne F; TripAdvisor Reviewer

Additionally, archaeological details present a unique record of Pompeii’s daily life including roads, buildings, and municipal services.

This not-to-be-missed exhibition is thrilling for adults and appropriate for the whole family.

PARENTAL WARNING:

Although this exhibition is appropriate for people of all ages – and includes great history lessons for children – it’s important to remember that ancient Roman cities held a very different view of sexuality during that period, so a few of the sculptures feature era-specific depictions of men and women without clothing.  There is also one area of the exhibition with more mature content (there is a parental advisory notice outside the entrance to this gallery) and the gallery can be skipped if you prefer.  Our exhibit features a very realistic 4-D experience that simulates a volcanic eruption–complete with flashing lights, sounds, visuals and vibrations that may frighten some youngsters.
