Christina Aguilera held a listening party recently to showcase her new album, “LOTUS.” It drops on November 13th and I personally can’t wait. Check out the previews below of some of Christina’s favorites on the album.
Christina talks about her inspiration for LOTUS.
BLANK PAGE is a power ballad worthy of Ms. Aguilera’s powerhouse vocals.
LET THEIR BE LOVE is the dance club mix you will be grooving to thanks to uber producer Max Martin.
ARMY OF ME is the song Christina calls “Fighter 2.0.” It’s this generation’s version of her hit song, “Fighter.” And just as powerful.
MAKE THE WORLD MOVE is Christina collaboration with Cee Lo.
JUST A FOOL is Christina’s duet with her “The Voice” co-judge Blake Shelton and it’s another ballad that is undeniably Christina.
Tuesday night NBC launched its latest reality-competition series called “The Voice.” I admit I was intreagued from the get go. I love me some Christina Aguilera. And I love me some Adam Levine. Cee Lo rocks and Blake Shelton has that sexy country thing going on. Still, no matter the star power, if the show concept isn’t there, it isn’t there. Fortunately for NBC, not only is the show concept there, it ROCKS!!!!
“The Voice” hooks you from the start. No wonder it was the top-rated series Tuesday night with more than 11 million viewers and more than 5 million of them in the coveted age 18-49 demo. The concept is simple… great voices show off their skills as vocalists and the judges compete to have them on their respective teams. The voices will be weeded out by competing against each other with their judges as their guides, until “The Voice” is crowned. Not only is the singing talent spectacular, but so are the judges and they are competitive as all get out. Adam and Christina have this flirtation thing going on. Cee Lo and Blake Shelton are so funny, but they all want to win. Adam Levine even tells one contestant in his hopes to whoo him, “I wanna win this f***er.
Check out episode one online at NBC.com and then make Tuesday nights on NBC a must for your DVR. It’s about time a new talent competition has come along that deserves you and your family’s time. “The Voice” very much does.
It’s a GLEE-ful Sunday as I catch up on all my TV scoop. GLEE EP Ryan Murphy confirms that Gwyneth Paltrow will be re-appearing in not just one, but two more episodes…and get this…she will be dating Will Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison. She’ll also be teaching sex ed. Gotta love it.
Speaking of Paltrow, she’s hosting Saturday Night Live on January 15th with musical guest Cee Lo Green. Paltrow sang his song, “F**k You,” on GLEE…although it was “Forget You” for the TV audience.
And shooting down a popular Internet rumor, Murphy says there will NOT be a Justin Bieber episode. He says those episodes are reserved for people with big music catalogs…(and I add, people who actually have talent).
So I was bored at work (slow time before my screening tomorrow) and I was randomly searching YouTube when I came across this guy. His name is Sam Northwood and he’s from London. OH MY GOD! The pipes on him. I picked two of his videos and posted them below (Cee Lo, Forget You, and a killer Christina Aguilera, Bound To You), but check out his YouTube page. He has loads more. THIS IS TALENT!!!
She tells Access Hollywood that she will be reprising her role as substitute teacher Holly Holiday, but she’s keeping quiet on the details.
Paltrow appeared on GLEE last month singing Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You” and joining the Glee cast for Rihanna’s “Umbrella” and “Singin’ in the Rain.”
