Kelly Clarkson Is Back With “Love So Soft”!

Oh my god! Kelly Clarkson has come back to save the music industry and it is all I have ever needed!

This sounds more like Kelly’s earlier albums and I am totally here for it. She is one of my all time favorite female vocalists and I still think she is underrated. I mean nearly every song she puts out has been in the Top 10 but I guess people would like to forget about those stats.

She is the original American Idol, she deserves your respect.

Kelly Clarkson Joins Season 14 Of ‘The Voice’!

Image may contain: 1 person, closeup

If I was going to pick a team to be on for ‘The Voice‘ it would absolutely be Kelly Clarkson‘s team. There is zero question about that.

One thing that I hate is that I feel like Kelly is still underrated in most people’s eyes. She has had so many hits, she has taken breaks and been able to come back stronger than ever. Hell she even had her body image absolutely ripped apart but she still stood strong.

There were a lot of rumors that Kelly would actually be joining the ‘American Idol‘ reboot but it looks like she chose ‘The Voice’!

Team Kelly all the way.

The Grammy Nominations 2017 Have Been Revealed!

grammy-logo

Today the Grammy awards were announced and it looks like it is going to be a tough fight for the award this year in certain categories! This year is the first year in a while that I have actually been excited for the nominations because there are a lot of artists that I truly believe have been over looked by the academy of music for a while now. Okay, I am mostly talking about Demi, but whatever.

A lot of people were wondering by Lady Gaga wasn’t nominated and it is because her album was released after the submission date, but don’t worry she will be nominated for at least one category next year.  The submission dates for this year were Oct. 1st, 2015 – Sept. 30th, 2016.

As always I will put my predictions, I give myself two predictions, one for who I think will win and who I want to win. Who I want to win will be in italics and who I think will win will be in bold. I do this every year and I am usually wrong, so it’s fun. If I don’t know anyone in the category I will simply leave it blank!

Kelly Clarkson Cries During “It’s Quiet Uptown” On The Today Show

kelly-clarkson-today-show-xmas

So, Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite and in my opinion, one of the most underrated female vocalists of all time.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, Kelly Clarkson appeared on ‘The Today Show’ to perform “It’s Quiet Uptown” that is featured on The Hamilton Mixtape. It is probably my favorite song of the entire mixtape. No, all of the songs are great, this song is just so beautiful written and Kelly absolutely slays it.

Kelly ends up tearing up during the performance, and I can’t blame her. The song is extremely emotional but she still sounds incredible.

And this is why Kelly is one of my all time favorite singers.

Bow down to queen Clarkson.

Kelly Clarkson’s Song From The ‘Hamilton’ Mixtape Will Make You Really Emotional

Image result for kelly clarkson

Chills. That is really all that I can say. Kelly Clarkson is one of my favorite female vocalists of all time. Her voice is just so hauntingly beautiful and her cover of this song? Oh my God, it is absolute perfection. I love the original from the actual musical ‘Hamilton’, but I am so ready for this ‘Hamilton’ mixtape, you have no idea.

Take a moment and listen to this gorgeous cover, and get read to cry.

In case you aren’t familiar with the ‘Hamilton’ musical, this song takes place after Alexander and Eliza’s son dies, and they are both in mourning. You should listen to the original too, but this cover? Crying all the tears right now.

Lin-Manuel Is Releasing The Hamilton Mixtape Featuring Nas, Usher, Sia, & More!

Yes, I am one of those people who will always tell you to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack and then talk about how it changed my life while making me love musicals more. Yes, that’s me. Hello.

Well today, Lin-Manuel announced that he is releasing a mixtape featuring an incredible amount of talented singers.

Check out the track list.

So, I have listened to this album on repeat for the past five months or so, I know every line, and I am ready for this. Here I can listen to all of the incredible songs but with new vocalists? Count me in!

The only other place I can picture Ashanti, Kelly Clarkson, and Busta Rhymes being on the same album would be a “Now That’s What I Call Music” album, right?

It will be available for preorder tomorrow and will officially go on sale December 2nd.

I am willing to wait for it, are you?

The Top 25 Best ‘American Idol’ Contestants Of All Time

As most people are aware by now, ‘American Idol’ is finally saying goodbye for good. Yes, it is still on television an no I don’t know any winners since Phillip Phillips. On that note, it is probably for the best considering this show has ran much longer than it should have, but you have to respect where it is due. ‘American Idol’ changed the way that Americans do television. Before AI, there was no online voting, no calling in to vote, it was the first show to make the viewer feel as though they were a part of a show.

On that note, ‘American Idol’ has produced some serious talent, more talent than any other singing show. I mean ‘The Voice’ has a few big names from it, the short lived ‘X-Factor USA’ basically only had Fifth Harmony come from it. Without ‘American Idol’ though, none of that would have happened. There would be no singing shows to speak of. I guess you can’t really assume that, but ‘American Idol’ was the first to do it.

Here are a list of who I think were the top 25 of all time. You my think my list is jacked up which is absolutely fine but it is my list! Remember I haven’t watched it for a few seasons so I have no idea if there is anyone from the past probably three seasons that I have missed. I mean to be fair, I don’t think that most of America even knew that the show was still on.

25. Kimberly Locke
To be honest, I didn’t appreciate her much when I was younger. I mean I was 11 and only cared about pop music so someone belting out Whitney Houston, at that point in my life didn’t matter. Looking back on it though Kimberly’s voice was insane and her ‘Seven days’ or whatever her single was, that was fire.

24. Kellie Pickler
Surprisingly she didn’t do too bad for herself after the show. On the show she wasn’t my favorite but her stage presence was something that you just couldn’t ignore.

23. Scotty McCreery
Scotty is a hottie but also a snooze fest. Yes, his voice is incredible but at the time on the show he was so boring. I remember just wanting his songs to be over because he would barely move around on stage. I think once he ran around like a mad man, other than that not so much.

22. Kimberly Caldwell
I think Kimberly could qualify as my first girl crush. I was obsessed with her and pretty upset when she left. Luckily for a while she was on random red carpets just doing the damn thing, like interviewing celebrities.

21. Alex Preston
Alex was in the later seasons but I genuinely believe that if he was back on like season 4 or 5, when the show still had a lot of steam he would have been more popular and potentially  could have won.

20. Jason Castro
Oh Jason, the surfer dude with the voice of an angel. His version of ‘Hallelujah’ still gives me chills.

19. Haley Reinhart
The judges always gave Haley shit but she can sing, her voice is incredible. It has definitely gotten stronger since Idol, her voice is insane though, in the best possible way.

18. Ruben Studdard
The velvet teddy bear. I was more of a Clay girl myself but Ruben was entertaining that was for sure. Maybe he will make a comeback one day, maybe.

17. Kris Allen
Kris Allen is a great singer, he is handsome, and he is humble. Somehow he beat Adam Lambert but in the end it is all about showmanship and Adam kind of seemed like the winner out of the two of them. Wen you get a change listen to ‘The Truth’ by Kris though, pretty incredible song.

16. Angie Miller
I genuinely thought that Angie had a shot at winning but American didn’t agree with me. ‘You Set Me Free’ is an absolutely beautiful and haunting song, everyone go download it!

15. Colton Dixon
Colton was someone who I thought was going to stick around, again, I was wrong. I mean I guess I can’t get them all right but he got voted out much earlier than I expected. He is now a married man and has a fairly successful Christian music career.

14. Jordin Sparks
I liked Jordin a lot more after ‘Idol’ than when she was on it. Jordin you gave me songs like ‘Battlefield’ and ‘Tattoo’ thank you for those classics.

13. Phillip Phillips
I would say that Phillip is probably the last successful winner of ‘American Idol’. You couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing ‘Home’ since then we haven’t heard much. I am assuming that he will be back soon enough though.

12. Fantasia
Much like Kimberly Locke when I was younger I couldn’t appreciate the belting out of music, I didn’t understand it. I just thought she was screaming. Going back to it though Fantasia had crazy ass talent. I also believe she is the only ‘American Idol’ alum with a Lifetime movie that they also starred in.

11. Nikki McKibben
Way back in season 1 I wanted Nikki to win it all. I liked Kelly Clarkson enough but I thought that Nikki was going to take it home. It always bummed me out that she never made it big but she was on a VH1 reality show, which is close enough, right?

10. Elliot Yamin
Elliot reminded me of AJ McLean I have no idea why. Loved his voice though, I also thought that it was pretty awesome he could sing so well and he was deaf in one ear, he didn’t let anything stop him. He also had a hit single that I remember loving but can’t remember the name of it.

9. Chris Daughtry
Listen I know that Chris should be higher on the list, sit down and shut our mouth! There were other singers that I liked better than him. I understand his talent was on a different level and he is one of the most successful after the show but I don’t care. I can say though, Chris is a very talented musician, what more do you want?

8. Clay Aiken
This legend. Clay Aiken should have won, that’s all I will say!

7. Katie Stevens
I may be one of the only people to say this but Katie was one of my all time favorites. She was only like 15 or 16 at the time and homegirl could sing, well more than just sing, she SANG. Now she is on a sow on MTV, hopefully she will go back to singing eventually though, that would be awesome!

6. Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer got sent home too early, but I think that’s okay because she won an Oscar, that kind of makes up for everything. She also made a ton of money off of Weight Watchers. Jennifer as made a big comeback since the tragedy that hit her family a few years back, I am glad that she is so happy now.

5.Kathrine McPhee
It’s a shame that Taylor Hicks beat her on ‘American Idol’. Katherine is now on the hit show ‘Scorpion’ though so I think she is going to be okay.

4. Josh Gracin
Boy oh boy did I love Josh Gracin. He was by far my favorite male on the show ever. Now he may not have had the best voice but his looks, my Lord I loved him. After ‘Idol’ he had a fairly successful country career before he fell off a bit. Recently it was said he threatened to kill himself, so we can only hope that whatever he is going through he goes through it safely!

3. Adam Lambert
Adam just toured the world with Queen, need I say more? He was like the Lady Gaga of ‘American Idol’ if that makes any sense. He was the first to have elaborate outfits and stages, Adam changed the game.

2. Kelly Clarkson
Kelly is a Grammy winning artist who puts out hit after hit, you can’t go wrong there. She is the first winner ever, another thing that you can’t deny. Kelly Clarkson will always be the first ‘American Idol’, the most important one, and the star of ‘From Justin to Kelly’

1.Carrie Underwood
Honestly picking between Kelly and Carrie was like Sophie’s choice. Carrie is my girl though. She always has been. She has always come back to her roots on Idol too, something that you just have to respect in a person. I am also pretty sure she is an angel.

So there you have it. Thank you ‘American Idol’ for changing music and television. You will be missed,

Jimmy Kimmel Delivers A New Set Of Mean Tweets – Music Edition

Mean tweets is by far one of my favorite segments. People have actually said that Kimmel has a mean sense of humor, I think it is hilarious. It’s not like these celebrities actually give a shit. They make so much money, I am sure they don’t care too much what a troll on the internet says. If they do care, they can dry their tears with hundred dollar bills.

The One Direction one absolutely killed me, the Drake one was hilarious, and I love that Mumford and Sons laughed at their tweet. It’s always nice when people don’t take themselves too seriously!

The total list of musicians are Meghan Trainor, Ricky Martin, James Taylor, Little Big Town, Common, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson, Charlie Wilson, Blake Shelton, Wiz Khalifa, Josh Groban, Demi Lovato, The Killers, Drake, One Direction, Lionel Richie, Rita Ora and Mumford & Sons.

Ryan Seacrest is begging people to watch American Idol again!

Image

“I will say this to those who have watched the show throughout the years and maybe didn’t watch last year: I ask them to come back and give it another shot this year,” Seacrest told The Hollywood Reporter Friday on the red carpet at the Z100 Jingle Ball 2013 concert at Madison Square Garden. “The judges are so fun, and they are having such a good time, and they get along with each other so well that I think you will see your old American Idol back on the air.”

Please everyone watch American Idol so Ryan Seacrest can keep his job! He is going to be homeless if we don’t watch American Idol! Dude, give it up, please just hang up the microphone. Well, I like his radio show, can’t lie about that but the whole American Idol thing, give it up. That show has become just another punch line even though it is one of the most successful music shows ever. I think it actually is the most successful since it brought out mega stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson, and Phillip Phillips just to name a few of the successful people from the show. No one cares about it anymore though, people would rather watch The Voice than watch American Idol, it is a sad truth.

After the fiasco last year with Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and the dog Randy Jackson, it was a hot ass mess. It was just awkward to watch and that was why no one did. They really think that bringing back J.Lo is going to save this program? J.Lo is the biggest wannabe there is! I feel like she always uses how she is different because she is a Latina artist, bitch you aren’t any different. You are Jenny from the block and that is the biggest hit you will ever have, please stop trying.

So no Ryan Seacrest I will not give your American Idol another shot! I can’t do it! The tackiness of this show has hurt me for far too long! Not even the beautiful Keith Urban can make me watch it again! I am sorry to let you down. I will watch you on the Rockin New Years Eve special though!
