Watch more in iWant or TFC.tv He's already considered one of the best young Filipino dancers --a remarkable talent whose collaborations with popular LA-based choreographer Matt Steffanina has amassed millions of views. But Ken San Jose wants to be better. And for that reason, he joined "World of Dance Philippines." The promising dancer explained that competing with others forces him to push himself beyond what he's already capable of and "exceed" expectations that are already sky high to begin with. He charmed and wowed the audience and judges of the show with a hip-hop routine set to a song by James Reid. It's a glimpse of his immense talent for dancing, and it was enough to bring Billy Crawford to his feet. "It's really hard to get onstage in a competition. Iyong pressure kakaiba pero iyong ngiti mo, puso, pagsasayaw mo," Crawford said before cutting himself and standing up, "I really salute you." San Jose dedicated his performance to his father, who died from lung cancer last year. … [Read more...] about News ‘World of Dance PH’: Online sensation Ken San Jose wows Billy Crawford

Okay, so the final season of Game of Thrones is right around the corner and theories are running rampant, but one theory that seems to be gaining some credibility is one involving Sansa Stark. Actress Sophie Turner has gone on record saying that the ending of the series will not make everyone happy. Was she hinting at the fact that Sansa Stark may get the Iron Throne? That would definitely cheese off some fans. However, another theory that is gaining steam is that an unlikely allegiance could emerge between Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). For those who watch the show, Sansa has really grown over the course of seven seasons and has learned a lot from those around her to become a formidable woman and fearless leader. She is far from the naive young girl viewers were introduced to in season one, and it seems this could be bad news for Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Reportedly in a recent trailer for Game of Thrones, Sansa was seen welcoming … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Sansa to claim Iron Throne?
