Even a Magnificent Prince Can’t Save the Dreadful Lip Synch, I mean Billboard Music Awards

May 20, 2013

prince-billboard-music-awards-2013-performance-videoWhat the hell Billboard? You represent the most popular music, songs and acts in the nation and you honor them with a show full of lip synching pop tarts? (Yes, I’m talking bout you Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and the incredibly whiny Justin Bieber). Seriously, it was the worst Billboard Awards show in history. Only a handful of acts actually sang live~ thank you Kasey Musgraves, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheerhan. And only the magnificent one, Prince, had a true standout performance. The legend who received the Billboard Icon Award seriously schooled all of the other acts. For an indepth look at my reaction to the Billboard Music Awards, head to my hilarious Twitter feed here.
In terms of the awards, which honored the biggest selling artists, singles, albums and most played songs, the big winners were Swift, Bieber, One Direction, Adele, Rihanna, Maroon 5, Gotye, Nicki Minaj, and Madonna who took home 3 awards and made quite an entrance to accept the award….

My American Idol Quick Wrap~ 3/27/13~ Detroit City Rocks?

March 28, 2013

Amber-Holcomb-Lately-American-Idol-12-150x100Tonight American Idol brought back the incredibly overdone theme of the music of Motown. However, they gave it a tiny twist saying it was music of Motown and any artist from the Motor City (i.e.: Detroit). That’s how we got a Madonna duet to go along with a ton of Stevie Wonder. I have to say the show was pretty good for the most part and I enjoyed Smokey Robinson as a mentor…. However, it became even more painfully clear that one contestant must go home while another rose to the occasion and could land a place in the top three. So just who did what and where do they land on my rankings? Check out my quick wrap rankings for all the performances and my predictions below.

American Idol Rankings 3/27/13~

SOLOS:
1. Amber: with a glorious vocal on Stevie Wonder’s “Lately”, Amber took no prisoners and LET ME HAVE IT! She better be winning some new fans after that one. Simply brilliant.
2. Janelle: with a wonderful re-working of the Supremes’ classic “You Keep Me Hanging On”, Janelle arguably had the “moment” of the night. What on Earth Nicki was complaining about afterwards was beyond me. (Um, seriously Nicki is just annoying now, but that’s a side note.) Janelle’s angst-filled countrified version of the song was great and I may even have to get it on iTunes.
3. Candice: with another great performance, Candice just makes it look too easy. Her take on “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” had a nice contemporary feel and was lush and sexy. Well done!
4. Kree: taking on an Aretha Franklin song I’m only slightly familiar with (“Don’t Play that Song”), Kree did her usual exemplary job. She’s a consummate professional and I think the one who has the best chance to win it all. Another solid performance.
5. Devin: giving the usual best male vocal of the night, Devin did a lovely job on “The Tracks of My Tears”. He even loosened up a little and has some great style. Now if he can just connect emotionally a bit more, he might have a fighting chance in this race.
6. Burnell: um, Burnell’s take on “My Cherie Amour” was way better than I thought it was gonna be, but that’s not saying too much. He does have a great tone, but the whole thing was pretty boring.
7. Angie: I have no idea what the hell that stink bomb Angie just laid on stage was but it was pretty awful. I appreciate that she tried to rock out to “Shop Around” but it did not work at all. It felt forced, was off pitch, a bit desperate and just wrong. However, her hair looked fabulous!
8. Lazaro: um, this take on “For Once in My Life” was easily his best performance since the first week in the top 40. That said, it was still blah and pretty bad. Enough already.

Duos/Trios:
1. Amber/Angie/Candice “I’m Going to Make You Love Me”: um, that was pretty darn flawless~ especially for Candice and Amber.
2. Janelle/Kree “Like A Prayer”: this was just aight for me. Kree did outsing Janelle by a mile, but it was decent overall for both ladies.
3. Burnell/Devin/Lazaro “Sugar Pie Honey Bunch”: for once I agree with crazy Nicki. That was absolutely horrifyingly bad. And look at the boys throwing each other under the bus. Um, sorry it was all Lazaro’s fault and Burnell did no favors to the song either. At least Devin tried to save it and remembered his words, but damn that was terrible.

Overall Rankings~
1. Amber
2. Candice
3. Kree
4. Janelle2janelle--2254955599043086973
5. Devin
6. Burnell
7. Angie
8. Lazaro

Predictions~

Bottom 3: Angie, Devin, Lazaro (yes, I’m throwing Angie in there… that may be crazy, but hey will it really be all three guys?)
Bottom 2: Devin, Lazaro
Going Home: Devin (unfortunately, the pity party-excuse making-annoying contestant and resident Senjaya of the season, Lazaro, will probably make it one more week~ blargh!)

So, did Detroit City rock for you? Or did it just make you roll… your eyes? … All I know is that Amber should finally be safe and Janelle is upping her game. But is it lights out for Devin or will people finally come to their senses and send the unprofessional whiner who can’t find a pitch if you paid him, Lazaro, home instead? Sound off below and tune into the American Idol results show tomorrow night on Fox.

Madonna and “Smash” Shine at the GLAAD Awards

March 17, 2013

Last night, Grammy winning Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame Icon and long time LGBT supporter Madonna honored Anderson Cooper with the “Vito Russo” Award at the New York GLAAD Media Awards. Her speech was funny, fierce and important as she took on the inequality, bullying, lack of tolerance and love in our world and how we need more people like the brave and admirable Cooper who work to change it. It was a wonderful speech as was Coopers when he accepted the award. Check out both inspirational, emotional and important speeches below. Then, head to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation website here for all the news on the show which also honored Smash as the Outstanding Drama Series, the amazing Oscar nominated film How to Survive a Plague for Outstanding Documentary and The Amazing Race as the Outstanding Reality Series of the year…. GLAAD will have more ceremonies in LA and San Francisco over the next few weeks honoring film, music and journalists as well.

GLAAD Award Winners:

– Outstanding Drama Series: Smash (NBC)

On a side note, GLAAD also gave its inaugural “Ally Award” to filmmaker Brett Ratner for launching the “Coming Out for Equality” PSA campaign. While that is great, it is way too soon to honor this homophobic and ignorant jerk just one year after he was fired from producing the Oscars for his behavior and speech about gay people. I’m happy he is trying to mend fences, but really? He needs to prove it other than saving his own face with this PSA campaign because I don’t believe for a second that he is completely reformed. It’s really a shame that they gave him this award. Maybe and hopefully he will truly deserved it in a few years, but for now I’m disappointed…. Ok, rant done…. Now, let’s concentrate on those great and meaningful speeches from Madge and Coop!

One Direction and Rihanna Shake Up the Charts

November 24, 2012

British boy band One Direction grab their second consecutive # 1 album in less than a year this week as they debut on top of the Billboard 200 Albums chart with their sophomore release Take Me Home. The set sells a big 540,000 copies for the third best debut this year after Mumford & Sons and Taylor Swift. Speaking of Swift, she’s the one who gets booted out of the top spot after three weeks at the summit. Other new albums debuting in the top ten this week include the final Twilight soundtrack and releases from The Weekend, Soundgarden, Green Day, Lana Del Rey and Christina Aguilera whose Lotus becomes her 6th top ten album but opens at a slightly disappointing # 7…. For more on the albums chart and One Direction’s big week, head to Billboard here and check out the new top ten below.

Top Ten Albums on the Billboard 200:

8. Now 44 Compilation- Various Artist (lw~ 2)

10. Paradise- Lana Del Rey (debut)

Over on the Hot 100, Rihanna makes waves as her single “Diamonds” finally unseats Maroon 5‘s “One More Night” after a surprisingly long 9 weeks on top. With her latest chart topper, Rihanna ties Madonna and The Supremes for the fourth most # 1’s in chart history with 12 apiece. (Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey and The Beatles are all ahead of them)… We’ll see how long Rihanna can rule as Bruno Mars and The Lumineers are climbing fast. Take a gander at the new top ten below and head to Billboard here for more on all the singles charts.

And one final note belongs to the late great Whitney Houston whose new hits package, I WIll Always Love You: The Best of Whitney Houston featuring her 11 # 1 songs and more, debuts at # 14 on the Billboard 200 and # 2 on the R&B Albums chart. It is one of several hits albums that should sell well this holiday season including Kelly Clarkson‘s first hits set that will debut next week…. For the moment, please enjoy this incredible live performance of Houston’s #1 smash from 1987 “Didn’t We Almost Have It All” below.

Bieber Wins Big but P!nk Steals the Show at the American Music Awards

November 19, 2012

Teen sensation Justin Bieber may have been the big winner at last night’s American Music Awards taking home 3 trophies, but the true victor from the show was P!nk with an astounding performance of her new single “Try”. In fact, pretty much everything from the show was a bit forgettable when compared with P!nk’s gorgeous moving and intense performance. With that said, take a look at my rankings of all the performances below. And can we please stop with all the lip synching? It was an atrocious lip synched mess for like 70% of the “singers” last night! .. As for the winners, a rather annoying Bieber took home Artist of the Year, Male Artist and Pop Album and he really needs to learn how to make an acceptance speech and get a sense of humor. A sense of humor would also help Taylor Swift, a winner for Country female, whose fake humility and incredibly irritating persona is grating on mine and a lot of other people’s nerves (and don’t get me started on that horrible performance)… Other big winners included Nicki Minaj with two awards and one apiece for Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, Adele, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Usher, Beyonce and Best New Artist Carly Rae Jepsen… For more on my take on the show and the winners, check out my twitter feed from last night here. (Yes, I live twatted the whole show!)…. And take a gander at all the winners below.

2012 American Music Award Winners:

Artist of the year: Justin Bieber
New artist of the year: Carly Rae Jepsen
Pop/rock female artist: Katy Perry
Pop/rock male artist: Justin Bieber
Pop/rock band, duo or group: Maroon 5
Pop/rock album: Justin Bieber, Believe
Country female artist: Taylor Swift
Country male artist: Luke Bryan
Country band, duo or group: Lady Antebellum
Country album: Carrie Underwood, Blown Away
Rap/hip-hop artist: Nicki Minaj
Rap/hip-hop album: Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded
Soul/R&B female artist: Beyonce
Soul/R&B male artist: Usher
Soul/R&B album: Rihanna, Talk That Talk
Alternative rock artist: Linkin Park
Adult contemporary artist: Adele
Latin artist: Shakira
Contemporary inspirational artist: tobyMac
Electronic dance music artist: David Guetta

Ranking the AMA Performances~

1. P!nk “Try”: this performance was simply stunning as P!nk married lyrical contemporary choreography and gorgeous emotional vocals to perfection in a duo with dancer Colt Prattes. It really defies words. Take a look below. Amazing. Grade: A+
2. Kelly Clarkson “Miss Independent/Since U Been Gone/Stronger/Catch My Breath”: with arguably the best vocal of the night, Clarkson paid homage to her American Idol roots and gave a flawless and fantastically fun performance. Now, that is how you sing LIVE people! Grade: A
3. Stevie Wonder “Dick Clark Tribute”: there’s a reason he’s a legend people and he proved it again… and he werrrrrked some serious purple to boot! Grade: A-
4. Linkin Park “Burn It Down”: giving you early 2000’s realness and a rocking good time, Linkin Park brought intense energy and precision to their industrial rap rock fusion hit. Grade: A-
5. No Doubt “Looking Hot”: they’ve still go it! Gwen is definitely still hot. Adrian is still crazy and Tony still looks stoned. Grade: B+
6. Carrie Underwood “Two Black Cadillacs”: despite a little pitchy start, Underwood nailed the rest of her delightfully dark and dramatic single. Grade: B+
7. Psy with Hammer “Gangnam Style/2 Legit 2 Quit”: there is no escaping the Korean Macarena and you know you loved it when Hammer showed up for a mashup of these dance hits… However, billing Hammer as an “international superstar” was a big much AMA’s… It’s not 1991. I’m just saying…. Grade: B
8. Justin Bieber “As Long As You Love Me”: I don’t know about you but I was shocked at how good and surprisingly authentic this acoustic performance was. It was easily the best thing I’ve ever seen him do. Grade: B
9. The Wanted “I Found You”: the hotter British boy band (sorry One Direction) actually sang live for most of the song and I’m kinda sucker for their rocking Ibiza dance party vibe. Grade: B
10. Christina Aguilera “Lotus/Army of Me/Let There Be Love”: Ok, the lip synched “Lotus” beginning was bad, but the let your freak fly positivity message was great. Plus she can wail like no other. It was just a bit of too much overall though. Grade: B-
11. Pitbull “Don’t Stop the Party: Ptibull is a fantastic performer and this generic but incredibly infectious song got everyone on their feet. However, did you really need to lip synch too Pit? Um, you’re rapping! Automatic point deduction. Grade: C+
12. Usher “Numb/Cant Stop Wont Stop/Medley”: it was a half sung/half lip synched vogueing laser show with a treadmill! He literally threw in everything but the kitchen sink. Grade: C+
13. Ke$ha “Die Young”: It was Game of Thrones meets Day of the Dead with a touch of Stomp at a gay circuit party. Oh, and another lip synched, but it was fun. Grade: C
14. Carly Rae Jepsen “This Kiss/Call Me Maybe”: it was fun but forgetful and this girl really needs to learn how to lip synch for her life. Grade: C-
15. Justin Bieber w/Nicki Minaj “Beauty and a Beat”: it was a second-rate wannabe NSYNC number, that was lip synced to boot. And Bieber looked rather tired. He is no JT people! Grade: C-
16. Nicki Minaj “Freedom”: here’s something I never thought I’d say about a Nicki Minaj performance~ that was BORING. Seriously boring and lip synched to boot. I had more fun staring at her Staypuff Marshmellow man meets Mariah Carey Christmas costume outfit. Grade: D+
17. Taylor Swift “I Knew You Were Trouble”: this was atrocious! It was a lip synched crapfest that stole from everyone including Madonna (“Vogue” at the VMAs), the Backstreet Boys (the “Everybody” video), Annie Lennox (the “Walking on Broken Glass” video) not to mention Gaga and Rihanna and more. Just belch. And Taylor would you please admit you’re not a country artist for once? That song is total pop meets dub step. Grade: D-
18. Swiss Beatz/douchebag Chris Brown/Ludacris performance: in a word, AWFUL. Grade: F

To end on a positive note, here are my two favorite performances. Enjoy the astounding P!nk and the fabulous Kelly Clarkson.

P!nk “Try” live at the AMA’s

Madonna Goes “Gangnam Style”

November 14, 2012

Madonna had a surprise in store for her New York concertgoers on Tuesday night as she welcomed Korean superstar Psy to the stage to sing his massive worldwide smash “Gangnam Style”. Take a look a the clip below. It looks the Queen of Pop is having a blast doing this fad dance… For more on Madonna head here and watch for her MDNA Tour all over the world this fall.

Jason Aldean Rides the “Train” to the Top

October 29, 2012

Country superstar Jason Aldean grabs his first # 1 Album on the Billboard 200 and his 3rd Country Album chart topper as his latest, Night Train, sells a big 409,000 copies in its debut. That’s the second biggest debut week this year behind Mumford & Sons and ahead of P!nk, Madonna and Justin Bieber. Aldean should relish his success because he and everyone else is bound to be trounced by Taylor Swift‘s new one next week… In the meantime, Aldean holds off debuts from Brandy, Scotty McCreery, and Jamey Johnson. Take a look at the new top ten below and head to Billboard here for more.

Top Ten Albums on the Billboard 200:
1. Night Train- Jason Aldean (debut)
2. Babel- Mumford & Sons (last week~ 1)
3. Two Eleven- Brandy (debut)

10. Metalocolypse: Deathalbum II- Dethklok

Over on the Hot 100 Singles Chart, Maroon 5 makes it six weeks on top with “One More Night” keeping Psy at bay yet again. Will he ever make it to the top? It’s looking less and less likely especially with hot new tracks from Ke$ha, Rihanna and NeYo making serious gains… We’ll see. For now, take a look at the new top ten below and head to Billboard here for all the charts.

Top Ten Singles on the Hot 100:
1. “One More Night”- Maroon 5 (lw~ 1)
2. “Gangam Style”- Psy (lw~ 2)
3. “Some Nights”- fun. (lw~ 4)

I’m seeing Madonna Tonight!!!

October 11, 2012

Ok, I don’t really have much to say, other than I’m seeing Madonna tonight at the Staples Center for her MDNA Tour!!!! I’m so excited. I mean look at the picture below and then the video of “Vogue” from the tour and you’ll understand why I’m so thrilled to see my favorite artist of all time!!! Long live the Queen!

Thirty Years Ago we met Madonna

October 6, 2012

It’s hard to believe but thirty years ago, we met Madonna. The pop icon has since conquered the world selling more than 300 million albums across the globe, won 7 Grammy Awards, been inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, had 8 # 1 albums, 12 # 1 singles, 38 Top Ten Hits (the most of all artists), 16 consecutive Top 5 Hits (a record) and an astonished 42 # 1 Dance Hits (another record). That is just the tip of the iceberg of her accomplishments. This amazing artist is currently on the road with her massively successful MDNA Tour which I am seeing on Thursday here in L.A., and I can’t wait. Watch for Madonna in a town near you this fall and take a look at the song that started it all below. Enjoy Madonna’s first single “Everybody” which was her first Top 5 Dance hit, originally released 30 years ago today. Congrats and all hail Madonna!

Madonna “Everybody”

First Listen~ Adele “Skyfall”

October 4, 2012

Multiple Grammy winning pop superstar Adele has owned the music world for the last two years with her massive smash album, 21, and its four hit singles. Three of those, “Rolling in the Deep”, “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire to the Rain” all hit # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 to boot. And now, after hearing her brand new single, “Skyfall”, she is likely to add another chart topper to her list. The new sexy and soaring anthem is the theme song she wrote for the latest James Bond film Skyfall starring Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Javier Bardem out Nov. 9th and it’s simply fantastic. It’s classic Bond and should go down in history alongside the best Bond anthems like “Goldfinger”, “For Your Eyes Only” and “Live and Let Die”. I’m also predicting it will become the second Bond theme song to hit # 1 following Duran Duran‘s “A View To a Kill” from A View to A Kill. The last Bond song to even hit the top ten was Madonna‘s “Die Another Day” from Die Another Day back in 2002 by the way. I’m also predicting the film will pick up Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for Best Song at the end of the year. Could Adele be an Oscar winner? It’s possible, but she’ll have to beat a host of contenders including “Suddenly”, the new song written for the filmed adaptation of the Tony winning smash musical Les Miserables…. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Instead, just enjoy Adele’s amazing new single below and get it on iTunes and other digital retailers tomorrow!
