"National Dog Show 2009," "Alton Brown Turkey," "Ziggy Marley" and "Katharine McPhee" are surging in Google Trends? We can shed some light on the mystery. Google Trends provides the hottest keywords of the hour. Though the results change frequently, at any given time the list offers a snapshot of what's hot in the world of entertainment news. Here's what's steamin' today...
Ziggy Marley – Bob Marley's oldest son performed at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade today. Though not as well known as Dora the Explorer, the Energizer Bunny, Ronald McDonald or Spider-Man, Ziggy may have stolen the show. He's also won several Grammys and is considered one of the finest reggae artists of the modern age.
Katharine McPhee – The 2006 'American Idol' runner-up also appeared at the 83rd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade today. She sang "Had it All" from her upcoming sophomore album 'Unbroken.' Other musical artists who performed at the parade this year include Andrea Bocelli, Carly Simon, Yo Gabba Gabba, Gloria Gaynor and Boys Like Girls.
National Dog Show 2009 – If you're not cooking, or eating, or cleaning, or watching football, or jumping in a pile of leaves with your cute-as-a-button nephew, then chances are you're watching The National Dog Show today. Broadcast on NBC following coverage of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the biggest pooch competition in the world will pit the most handsome, well-groomed four-legged creatures against each other in a beauty pageant for the ages. 'Seinfeld' and 'Dancing with the Stars' favorite John O'Hurley and canine specialist David Frei sit in the booth. You can watch the show online here.
Adam Lambert Controversy Video – A couple days ago you could drop by just about any entertainment news site and check out Adam Lambert's controversial American Music Awards performance. The past few days it hasn't been so easy. That's because ABC owns the video rights but is contractually bound to keep the footage under wraps. If you're a savvy web surfer, you'll find the riveting performance somewhere.
Alton Brown Turkey Recipe – You're in trouble if you're only now figuring out how to cook your Thanksgiving turkey. But if you're gonna be late, better late using a great recipe than late with a tacky turkey. Alton Brown of the Food Network's 'Good Eats' is the cooking world's resident mad scientist. He knows what works at the molecular level to make your mouth water and your taste buds explode. This year Alton's turkey recipe involves tossing a bird in a homemade mixture of brine for 2-3 days (we told you you'd be late), tucking apple, onion and cinnamon inside the thing, and then roasting her for a few hours.
Thanksgiving – OK, this term, in itself isn't on Google Trends today. But if it's not the term most frequently punched into keyboards this Thursday, we don't know what is. A few Thanksgiving terms that are on Google Trends today: Turkey Cook Time, Candied Yams Recipe, Deep Fried Turkey, Giblet Gravy Recipe, Dirty Thanksgiving Jokes, Turkey Thermometer Placement, Thanksgiving Football Schedule, and last but certainly not least important, Napkin Folding.
