Joel, Shriver, Jackson in boomer doc

NEW YORK (AP) -- Billy Joel, Maria Shriver and Samuel L. Jackson -- baby boomers all -- will be among those featured in an upcoming PBS documentary about the post-World War II generation.

PBS announced Thursday that "American Masters: The Boomer List" will air Sept. 23 on member stations. The 90-minute production, directed by filmmaker-photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, will include 19 notable public figures. Their years of birth represent each of the years commonly associated with the baby boom era, 1946-64. The list also includes Rosie O'Donnell, Tommy Hilfiger and Steve Wozniak.

Portraits of the interviewees will be included in a coffee table book and in an exhibit at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. "The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders" from Sept. 26 through June 2015.

Top nominee Beyonce to perform at VMAs

NEW YORK (AP) -- Beyonce is set to have a "Flawless" night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The singer will perform at the Aug. 24 show at The Forum in Inglewood, California. She leads in nominations with eight, including video of the year for "Drunk in Love."

The 32-year-old will also receive the video vanguard award, a lifetime achievement honor also bestowed to Michael Jackson, Madonna and Britney Spears.

Beyonce caused a stir last weekend when she released a Nicki Minaj-assisted remix to her song "Flawless," where the singer raps and references the leaked elevator video of her sister Solange attacking Jay Z. Beyonce's collaborative tour with her husband wrapped its U.S. dates on Wednesday.

U.K. 'X Factor' coming to US on AXS TV

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The British edition of "The X Factor" is coming to U.S. television.

Music entertainment cable channel AXS TV said Wednesday it will begin airing the singing contest's 11th season on Labor Day weekend.

"X Factor" creator Simon Cowell is on the judging panel, which includes ex-Spice Girl Mel B and pop singer Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, formerly known as Cheryl Cole.

"The X Factor" is a hit in Britain and a success internationally, with the format produced in 48 TV markets.

The U.S. version was an exception: Fox's "The X Factor" was canceled after three seasons because of disappointing ratings. Even Cowell's popularity from "American Idol" didn't help.
