Actor Liam Neeson has raised almost $400,000 to renovate a theater in his native Ireland. The "Love Actually" star threw a glitzy bash in New York earlier this month, on January 10, with stars including Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn turning out to raise funds to help rebuild Belfast's Lyric Theatre.

Irish performers Brian Kennedy and Conleth Hill entertained the guests, and Neeson, a longterm patron of the establishment, took to the stage to urge the audience to support the theater's fundraising campaign. The new venue will cost $27.2 million, and officials must raise 1.3 million pounds by June 2010 to receive further financial backing.

January 20, 2010 04:45:59 GMT


It was a tough "American Idol" audition in Chicago as only 13 golden tickets were issued out of thousands. Simon Cowell uttered some nasty words when a lot of the auditioners were either mediocre or plain bad. At one point he said, "Do you find that when you sing at home, a lot of animals turn up outside the house?" Nicer Shania Twain appeared as the guest judge.

The show however was kicked off with a successful audition from Katelyn Epperly. Singing "Syrup and Honey", the curly blonde impressed the judges and went through with unanimous vote. The next act, however, brought the tone down. 26-year-old Amy Lang has an inappropriate dream about Ryan Seacrest and when she entered the room, she butchered her audition by displaying a kind of "boob boxing".
