Big News: American Idol releases new promo + New 'Sudden Death' round?
American Idol has been nailing every single one of the promotional videos lately, good thing. Because they might need it. After a lacklustre Season 9, following a huge mess regarding the judging panel, and Simon Cowell leaving the show and bringing his massive UK hit show The X Factor to the States, the future of American Idol was and still is rather uncertain. Nevertheless, Idol is pulling out all the stops to make sure Idol's Season 10 doesn't fall too hard. In the promo video above, you can see some pretty good auditionees (though only one singer was featured), and another hopeful that looks startingly similar to Charity Vance who auditioned last year but failed to breeze through Hollywood Week. I'm thinking it's her, because there are people buzzing online thhat it isn't.
Also, Idol's exec producer Nigel Lythgoe who returned to the show this year, has tweeted that "We’re rehearsing with the Idol contestants, the first time this year. I’m still very happy with the overall standard. Tough decisions ahead." This is the "rumoured" 'Sudden Death' round that surfaced online earlier where we'll see the Top 40 cut to the Top 20. Hmmmm.
Also, a report from Daily Mail has said that Simon Cowell has signed Will Smith as a judge. First off, don't think this one is true. Secondly, I laughed a bit because I read 'Willow Smith'.
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!
