During these unprecedented times, it seems like there is a lot bad news all around us. Whether it be on the news or in the shows we watch, it has become increasingly difficult to find the good. That's why John Krasinski took matters into his own hands, when he decided to launch his youtube series Some Good News. The show highlights the many feel good stories that are so easy to miss in such chaotic times.
We captured the moment our colleagues' children learned about the gender pay and leadership gap. Their reactions are a reminder to never be complacent and that's why we've committed to closing the gap.

What Fans Can Expect<p>So, who is competing in the show this season? Standouts include hip hop dancer Amari Smith, urban dance duo Bailey and Kida, ballet dancer Maddy Penney, and jazz group Project 21.</p><p>However, there will be a few twists to the competition.</p><p>When performers walk in the room, they might think that they are performing one final audition for the panel of producers. It actually is the opposite. Hopeful acts will take the stage upon learning that the qualifiers have already begun and judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough, and Ne-Yo are there to see them perform. After that, they will then determine if the act has what it takes to move further into the competition.</p><p>Then there is the callback portion of the competition, in which judges are given the opportunity to each give either one of three choices: a yes vote, a no vote, or a callback vote. The callback vote allows acts to be given one last chance to perform and maybe earn a spot in the next qualifying round, which is the blind battle. The Blind Battle occurs when the judges decide which acts will be competing against each other in the Duels round (the acts won't know who they're competing against until they go on stage). Finally, there is the beloved and revamped redemption round, where a guest judge will have the power of deciding which acts in jeopardy of being eliminated will end up competing against each other again in order to secure the final spot in the semi-final portion of the competition.</p><p>Scott Evans is slated to host the series, along with Lopez, Hough and Ne-Yo as judges.</p>

On Spotify, Lady Gaga talks about what the song means to her:</p><blockquote>"Sometimes I've thought that I've cried so many tears that that's all I was anymore - a fountain for misery to cycle through. I'd rather that not be true, but at least I'm alive. I'm grateful for that. Tears can be teachers if we let them."</blockquote>
