CMAs 2010 Performances
Your hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley opened the night with Songs Like This, a standout track from Underwood's latest album Play On, with a little help from fellow Country superstar Keith Urban. They all did a fantastic job and got the night of to a very energetic start, methinks.
Brad & Carrie then opened with a monologue and everyone from Taylor Swift to Tiger Woods to BP (and the oil spill in the gulf) was mentioned. There were a few genius one liners in there and these two definitely have a lot of chemstry going on. HILARIOUS STUFF.
Underwood and Paisley then sang a little song for newly engaged Country stars Blake Shelton & Mranda Lambert. And of course, Brad reminds all of us that it's her four month wedding anniversary.
Of course, with all her success, a performance at the CMA Awards was in order. Country/pop megastar Taylor Swift performed Back to December with a string section behind her while she played the piano. It was hauntingly good and if you were wondering why Swift mouthed a big "WHAT?" at the end of the performance, it was because she was shocked that she received a standing ovation, at least that's what reports are saying..
Jason Aldean teamed up with pop/rock superstar Kelly Clarkson on his latest single Don't You Wanna Stay and delivered their first BIG performance of the duet. Together, the pair weren't as strong as they were individually, but Kelly was phenomenal, and she sounded as on point as ever.
Despite being totally snubbed for any awards, Underwood took to the stage to perform Mama's Song, her latest single. The props and everything looked wonderful.
We review the latest in 21st century. Mostly we do pop, but it doesn't really matter, along with new music premieres, video premieres, album premieres. If the links don't work, please notify me in the cbox right below and I will post a new link in the cbox. Thanks.
Artist Of The Month. (November 2011)
The Power Rangers of British pop, The Saturdays, are returning this year with a more mature sound and image, with the girlband taking a stab at the pop/dance wave with their fourth album On Your Radar's first single Notorious being a total flip in direction in their sound, and was noticeably more clubby compared to their previous singles and albums. They then took things a level further with the complete rave-tastic All Fired Up, which is without a doubt their best single release, not surprising since the track was produced by production powerhouse Xenomania, the machine behind pretty much all of Girls Aloud's discography. The pop five-piece are charging forward with the Christmassy ballad My Heart Takes Over before their album On Your Radar drops November 21st!
