Here's some footage of Mya shooting the video for her new single "Love Is The Answer" recently in Washington D.C. If this godawful electro mess is what she has to resort to recording to find any ounce of success as an indie, then never has there been better evidence that she NEEDS to sign with a major again pronto!
Yesterday, Katharine McPhee's performance of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" off Christmas Is The Time To Say I Love You aired on The Early Show. It's a little late now, but she sounded lovely, so extend your holiday a little with Kat!
"Party All Night (Sleep All Day)" is the latest single lifted from Sean Kingston's as-yet-untitled third album. It's not a cover of a Black-Eyed Peas song... it's worse.
Keri Hilson performed her Ne-Yo-penned single "Pretty Girl Rock" at his VEVO concert recently & did a fine job! Her second album No Boys Allowed is out now.
Nicole Scherzinger returned to her place on the judges' table for the second season of The Sing-Off, which just ended, but not before she took the stage to sing with Jerry Lawson & Talk Of The Town. They didn't win, but it was still a pleasant performance. I do wish she could've snuck in a performance of "Poison" though... As for the show itself, I watched it last year when no one did, but didn't this year when everybody did... go figure, but I just couldn't bring myself to care enough to watch it.
43 days after hitting iTunes & 65 days since the video premiered, Ciara has FINALLY performed "Gimmie Dat", the latest single off her new album Basic Instinct, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Do you have any idea how long I've waited to type the title of this post? That's right, too friggin' long! And, I would like to point out, after ONE performance of the song, it went from obscurity to one of the top 200 songs on iTunes--& her vocals weren't even that good! I hate you, Jive. In related news, even though Ciara's done four shows so far this week & three of them have only been interviews, she took it upon her wonderful self to perform for us a little impromptu "Basic Instinct (U Got Me)" while visiting 106 & Park (She co-hosted for you guys for FOUR days a few weeks back & you STILL wouldn't let her perform?!), which you can check out during the first of the two-part interview below:
"Auld Lang Syne (The New Year's Anthem)" is the third single off Mariah Carey's new album Merry Christmas II You. Getting a head start on New Year's Eve, Mariah has premiered this mediocre video for my JAM--& I ain't afraid to say it! Reason #91697 why Mariah is my hero: She is the only person that can take this tired old song & make it a SGSHW!!
Christina Aguilera recently performed the Golden Globe-nominated "Bound To You", her big ballad from "Burlesque", at a recent promotional stop for the film. That's right: "Bound To You", which Christina co-wrote, was nominated for Best Original Song (alongside Cher's ballad "You Haven't Seen The Last Of Me"), while "Burlesque" itself received a nomination for Best Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical at the 68th Golden Globe Awards! Congrats to Christina & the whole cast on these well-deserved nominations!! Not to mention that this is Christina's best vocal showing this era!
