• Video: Voice' Duo The Swon Brothers Talk Shelton

    July 22, 2014 11:56 AM ET

    Voice alums the Swon Brothers are preparing to release their full-length major-label debut, and their single "Later On" is already a bona fide country hit. (It racked up the most one-week adds of any debut single in Country Aircheck history when it was released this past March.) But despite hitting the big-time, the fun-loving Okies from Muskogee haven't changed one bit since they charmed their way into America's hearts, and the grand finale, on The Voice Season 4. They're as h...  | More »

  • Paula Abdul's Favorite Choreography Moments of Her Career

    July 18, 2014 12:10 PM ET
     |  Lyndsey Parker

    While some fans may think of Paula Abdul as a "Straight Up" pop starlet or original American Idol/X Factor judge, her true entertainment legacy lies in dance. After her humble start as a Laker Girl, she went on to win multiple Emmys and VMAs for her groundbreaking choreography, and her routines in music videos (for herself as well as other artists), film, and television have become iconic. Paula also been a guest judge on Dancing With the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance (and a regular j...  | More »

  • Video: Linda Perry Talks Reality TV vs. Reality

    July 14, 2014 11:40 AM ET

    Linda Perry — the superproducer and 4 Non Blondes founder who's worked with Pink, Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, the Dixie Chicks, and many other massive artists — is about to launch her own reality series on VH1, Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project. But she wants to make it clear that her show is totally different from American Idol and The Voice. In fact, in the cold open of the series' premiere episode, she snarkily remarks that the actual music business has not...  | More »

  • Video: Allison Iraheta + Halo Circus Perform

    July 11, 2014 11:30 AM ET

    Allison Iraheta's ties to Duran Duran are strong. While she sadly never covered the Fab Five when she competed on American Idol in 2009, she's since recorded music for the Skaist-Taylor fashion line (co-founded by John's wife, Gela Nash-Taylor); her husband and Halo Circus bandmate, Matthew Hager, has worked on recent Duran Duran albums; and Halo Circus's song "Something Special" was even co-written by John. So it makes sense that Manimal Vinyl would recruit Halo Circus f...  | More »

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    Actress Nikki Reed and American Idol alum Paul McDonald recently announced their separation, just a little more than three years after they met on an Idol episode and married after a whirlwind courtship. But over the course of their relationship, they worked on music together as a Civil Wars-like duo — and this week, their independently released full-length debut album is finally out. With a title like I'm Not Falling and tracks like "Misery," "Bouquet of Lies," "Don't Let Me...  | More »

  • 'Rising Star' Gets It About 70 Percent Right

    June 25, 2014 11:05 AM ET
     |  Lyndsey Parker

    On Sunday night, ABC premiered a new singing show called Rising Star. Yes, another music competition. Can this latest entry in a crowded (and some would say fading) market do what The Next, Platinum Hit, P. Diddy's Starmaker, Redemption Song, ABC's own Kelly Clarkson/Robin Thicke/John Legend/Jennifer Nettles-helmed Duets, and even to some extent The X Factor could not — and actually stake out a credible place alongside American Idol and The Voice? Well, maybe. It does have ex...  | More »

  • They Are the Champions: A Queen + Adam Lambert Timeline

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    Adam Lambert is joining Queen on the road this summer, and while it's one of the most anticipated tours of 2014, this trek has been a long time coming. Truly, from the moment Adam first entered America's living rooms and the American Idol audition room five (yes, FIVE) years ago, he seemed fit for a Queen and destined to one day front the legendary glam-rock group.

    American Idol Season 6 runner-up Blake Lewis just released his third album, Portrait of a Chameleon, but the hardest-working Idol in showbiz has found time to collaborate with buzzy rapper and fellow Seattle artist RA Scion on "Venus in Transit," the video for which is premiering right here on Yahoo Music.
