  • Record companies are courting an 18-year-old British singer, whose virtual duet with Jessie J has gone viral.

    Tom Bleasby recorded his version of Jessie J’s song “Flashlight” from the “Pitch Perfect 2” soundtrack using the karaoke app Smule.

    Jessie J recorded the song on Smule, leaving gaps for fans to sing with her and to look like she was interacting with them.

     Bleasby posted his video on Facebook on May 23, and the singalong has already generated 8.5 million views.

    “The past week has been crazy,” Bleasby told the BBC. “My phone does not stop going off. The overwhelming outpour of support has been inspiring, thousands of messages from complete strangers telling me how amazed they were.”

    Bleasby, who insists that he has never had a singing lesson, has been approached by a record producer who has worked with Beyoncé.

    The teen says he is now being “bombarded” with requests from record companies. We hope there is a solo album in the works!

  • Wayman Gresham is calling out all of the parents who are publicly punishing and embarrassing their kids online.

    The Florida dad posted his own video last week, a parody of the “kid-shaming” videos. Like most of those videos circulating on the Web, Gresham starts out by saying he’s going to “teach his son a lesson” by giving his son a “bald head, messed up haircut.”

    But then Gresham turns the tables and asks his son to get up and hug him. Then Gresham calls out all the moms and dads who have publicly shamed their kids online.
    “Good parenting starts before he even gets to the point of being out of control. … Good parenting is letting your child know that you love them regardless of what they are and who they are and showing them the way by example,” Gresham says in the video.

    Gresham says parents who have resorted to public shaming are a bad example and that parenting doesn’t have to be so extreme.

    The video has gone viral, with more than 18 million views on Facebook to date.

  • Forget about #TheDress ... this girl’s hair seems to magically change colors as she walks around!

    Sabrina Abu-Obeid recently debuted her newly dyed violet hair to her boyfriend, DJ, but she didn’t believe him when he said her hair seemed to change color before his eyes.

    DJ documented Sabrina’s changing hair color, and overnight the video went viral!

    “He really wanted to show me what he saw, so he took out his phone and shot a quick video, which was initially intended for only me to see,” Sabrina told BuzzFeed. “We knew it would get some attention, but we definitely didn’t expect it to go as viral as it did.”

    So is her hair blue, purple, violet or pink? All of the above? You decide.

  • Four ducklings trapped inside a storm drain in Canada were rescued thanks to a quick-thinking dad, after Ceiligh Dodds, 15, saw four baby ducks fall into the sewer and rushed to her dad to help her rescue them.

    “I was terrified,” Ceiligh told CBC News. “It was one of the saddest things I've ever seen in my life.”

    “I felt so bad for them when they were cheep-cheep-cheeping,” Dennis said. “There was no way they were going to get out of that sewer.”

    He had the brilliant idea to attach a butterfly net to a hockey stick to lift the baby birds from the sewer below.

    “I didn't know whether we’d be able to scoop any of them up at all,” he said. “[I'm] relieved and very pleased with myself.”

    The successful rescue mission was a family affair, with all the kids taking part, from assisting in the rescue, to researching what to do with the rescued ducklings, to capturing the event on camera.

    Once retrieved from the storm drain, the ducklings were released back into the wild, where they were taken
