TWO celebrities have just reignited the popularity of the Grace Kelly challenge on TikTok.

The viral trend involves users performing the tricky harmonies from a famous song.

The challenge involves TikTok users posting their rendition of the famous lines from Mika's 2007 song - called Grace Kelly.

The trend sees users perform the harmonies from the song.

In different pitches, they sing the iconic chorus of the song with the lyrics - I could be brown, I could be blue, I could be violet sky, I could be hurtful, I could be purple, I could be anything you like.

The TikTokers then have their voices, in different pitches, overlapping as they move to even higher tones.

They go from the lowest note to the slightly less low part, then move to the high note, until they finally try to hit the extremely high vocal note.

In the end, they finally try to reach the famous high note Mika used in the tune.

Ryan Reynolds, 44, and Will Ferrell, 54, who have been working together on the Christmas musical film Spirited, hopped on the Grace Kelly challenge bandwagon.

At first, it seems like Ryan is the only one doing the challenge.

But as he tries to hit all the notes correctly, Will suddenly enters the picture from the right and hilariously sings the high note.

Will goes on to add more of his own harmonies as he hits higher notes while Ryan pretends to be annoyed.

In the caption, Ryan said: "Late to the Grace Kelly Tik Tok trend but WAY early for our Christmas movie musical."

Mika's song is titled after the Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly.

Grace was an American film actress.

She starred in several big films in the early to mid-1950s before becoming the Princess of Monaco by marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956.

The actress gained stardom from her performance in John Ford's romance Mogambo, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

She is listed 13th among the American Film Institute's 25 Greatest Female Stars of Classical Hollywood Cinema.

Her son, Prince Albert, helped establish the Princess Grace Awards in 1984 to recognize emerging performers in film, theatre, and dance.

Wrestling Inc. 14 September, 2021 - 08:53pm

Tommaso Ciampa is your new WWE NXT Champion.

The main event of tonight’s NXT 2.0 revamp episode saw Ciampa win a Fatal 4 Way to capture the vacant NXT Title. The other competitors in the match were Pete Dunne, LA Knight and newcomer Von Wagner (Cal Bloom, son of Wayne Bloom). Wagner was added to the match as Kyle O’Reilly’s replacement due to an earlier attack by Dunne and Ridge Holland.

This is Ciampa’s second run with the NXT Title. The belt was declared vacant this past weekend by Samoa Joe, who was forced to relinquish the strap due to an injury. Joe held the title for 20 days, winning it from Karrion Kross back at Takeover 36 on August 22.

Stay tuned for more. Below are several shots from tonight’s title change at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando:

Johnny Gargano's contract set to expire in December - Pro Wrestling Torch

PWTorch 13 September, 2021 - 08:38pm

Another big name NXT contract is expiring in the near future.

PWTorch has independently confirmed that Johnny Gargano’s contract with NXT expires in December. Gargano is a triple crown champion in NXT having held the NXT, North American, and Tag Team Championships duirng his time in the company. Outside of a brief run on the main roster, Gargano has spent all of his time in NXT since signing with WWE in 2016.

Negotiations between both sides have not begun according to a report from Fightful Select per sources from WWE, as they are expected to begin in the fall. Fightful also reported that Gargano’s contract status did not catch WWE by surprise as was the case with Adam Cole and Pete Dunne because WWE has been reviewing many of their contracts since the situation that happened earlier in the year with Alester Black and his 30 day non-compete.

According to Fightful, the exact date Gargano’s contract expires is Dec. 3.

WWE, probably the only billion dollar corporation that doesn’t realize when contracts expire
