Cee Lo, Aguilera, and Adam Levine: The Voice

Since American Idol isn't enough anymore, NBC thought they'd come up with there own vocal competition T.V. show: The Voice. Strikingly similar to American Idol, this show will feature three judges to critique those who dare audition. This evening, Rolling stone announced the lucky 3: Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, and Adam Levine. Cee Lo Green nailed the charts with his recent hit "Forget You" and has been on the path to success ever since. Augilera's latest apperance was at Superbowl XLV where she had a few issues with the National Anthem's lyrics. After a cancled tour and a P.I. charge, hopefully this appearance on this show will be just what she needs to get back on her feet. Adam Levine is the frontman for the band Maroon 5. Personally I love the band and I think he'll bring alot to the judges table. Can't wait to see the show, set to premiere on April 26th with Carson Daly as the host!! Weigh in Below! What 3 famous musicians would YOU like to see judge this show? and are you happy with the choices??

Bieber Announces New Favorite Candy On Conan

After becoming tired of being pelted on stage with packages of sour patch kids, Bieber was reluctant to tell Conan O' Brian his new favorite candy. After Conan coaxed him for a bit, Bieber revealed that his new favorite was none other than: PEEPS! Being from the Bethlehem/Allentown area, and having a relative that works at Just Born Inc. , it comes as a surprise that he would pick PEEPS of all things to be his favorite. As soon as he announced it, Conan dropped hundreds of real PEEPS on Bieber right on the set! The full interview is posted below! The "PEEP drop" comes at around the 11:15 time marker. Check it out!! And weigh in with comments! What's your favorite candy? and if Bieber switches again, what will his new favorite be??

Update 2-22-11

Hey Everyone,

I want to apologize about the lack of a post or two the past few days. I've been killed with work and then this weekend I got hit with a nasty sickness that had me in bed for two days. I'd just wanted to say I'm back now and post will resume normally from now on! Oh, and as I added in my Bio, I am a drummer. With my new purchase of Pro Tools 8 and some other recording gear, I will start posting videos of drumming covers on Youtube!! Let me know what songs you want to hear and I'll do my best to get to them!! Thanks everyone!!

Did Gaga copy Madonna?

Today while driving around I heard a song come on the radio and immediately assumed it was Madonna's "Express Yourself". After listening to the lryics for a little while, I realized it was Lady Gaga's newest single, "Born this way". As soon as I got home, I began to do some comparitive work. Both are around the same tempo with a strong driven 4/4 beat, both are in very similar keys, if not the same, both start out with a spoken intro, and in my opinion, they sound all-around similar. Odd coincidences? or is Lady  Gaga trying to revive the past for her own benefit? Weigh in below and check out the links to both songs! What do you think?

Madonna - Express Yourself
Lady Gaga- Born This Way

Superbowl XLV Halftime Show!

The Superbowl brings alot to America; The food, the friends, the wings, the football, and most of all the halftime show! This year, the increasingly popular  Black Eyed Peas were featured in the center of the field along with a few unsuspected guests. Kept under wraps very well, both Slash and Usher made guest apperances at the show! Many were surprised to hear Slash rock it out to Sweet Child o' Mine in the middle of the performance, and even more surprised to see Usher drop from the ceiling as Will.I.Am started to sing OMG. The entire time, hundreds of people dressed in light up outfits graced the field with organized routines to each song. The show opened and closed with Black Eyed Peas' "I Got a feelin'" and mainly consisted of a medely of other BEP songs in the middle. To see the show check out the Vid I posted above! Weigh in and tell me what you thought of the show!!
