Everyone loves a good wedding -- the booze, the food, the outfits, the awkward drunk uncle dance. But truth is, nuptials are even more fascinating when famous musicians are involved. (What do their drunk uncles look like doing "The Birdie Song" dance?!) Here are five musicians and singers who have p ... More >>
In a funny, personal, F-bomb-laden keynote address at Austin's South By Southwest music conference this morning, Dave Grohl proselytized for the power of the musician's voice -- and the importance of letting artists develop on their own.
Dressed in a plaid shirt, jeans, and wearing drug store readi ... More >>
As it's done all season, The Voice dragged out its results show to a degree that was at best arduous and at worst excruciating. So, after two hours of performances from bus-loads of people -- including Rihanna (who had actual clothes on, miraculously), Smokey Robinson, Kelly Clarkson, The Killers, P ... More >>
It's an unexpectedly somber start to the long-awaited finale of The Voice, with hosts, contestants and coaches all gathered for a heart-wrenching rendition of "Hallelujah." Each of them carries a card with the name and age of one of the victims of last Friday's horrific Newtown massacre. It's a sigh ... More >>
Alright, kids. The end is in sight. All of Christina Aguilera's and Adam Levine's team members have been eliminated at this point, so everything comes down to the picks of either Blake Shelton or Cee-Lo Green. We like Team Blake: Scottish rocker Terry McDermott and ex-Hey Monday vocalist Cassadee Po ... More >>
You won't be seeing a lot of Billie Joe Armstrong in person these days -- the Green Day singer is currently in rehab working on some substance abuse issues. But the Oakland rocker's pretaped appearances on NBC singing competition the Voice began airing last night, giving us a first look at how the p ... More >>
Remember when Christina Aguilera was all oily and gross and rolling around with her crotch out all the time? Talking about wanting to get "Dirrty" and stuff? And how depressing it was because she was so young? Well, new single "Your Body" proudly harks back to Xtina's days of filth -- it's as if Bac ... More >>
Well, we certainly didn't see this coming: Rolling Stone reports today (via AP) that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong will be a mentor on the upcoming season of NBC's hit TV music competition The Voice, helping the members of Christina Aguilera's team sing their best.
His primetime TV arriva ... More >>
Over two shows last night and Monday, The Voice finally concluded and crowned a winner. As already discussed, we're weren't thrilled with the choices for finalists this year, but loved one of them (Juliet Simms) so much, we were willing to watch four hours of this thing to see how things turned out. ...

Granted, the show is called The Voice, thus emphasizing contestants' ability to sing; and granted, Chris Mann can expertly render notes given to him on a sheet of music, which many others (probably including his coach, Christina Aguilera) can't do as well; and granted, Mann's Vanderbilt training and ...

Last night, the finalists for NBC's The Voice were finally decided upon, and it was an odd show from the beginning. This thing started on a... really, really low note actually, with finalist from last year, Dia Frampton (should've won -- *cough* -- should've won) performing a song titled "Don't Kick ... More >>
The last few weeks, we've been DVRing the shit out of the second season of The Voice to ensure we wouldn't miss a second. There is something thoroughly riveting about that show -- partly because of the concept (waiting to see if the judges will turn their chairs around for the contestants) is tot ... More >>
So last night was the grand finale of NBC's The Voice -- the first vaguely credible vocal talent show to find itself on American television. The night before, on Tuesday, the last four contestants each performed a duet with their coaches, as well as a song that had been written s ... More >>
We've not always been very kind to Christina Aguilera on this blog. Last time we mentioned her, we accused her of being "wasted out of [her] yodeling, gurning mind", for example. We may have also mentioned that, when Stripped came out, she looked more like Dee Snider from Twisted Sister than Dee Sni ... More >>
Bringing the exotic to the mundane -- and staying cool. How does Gaga do it?This week, Lady Gaga proved she could take any old rotten
lemons thrown at her and make delicious lemonade out of them, by appearing on
American Idol as a guest mentor. Which, frankly, we thought was a tad beneath
her. Es ... More >>
