     |  Lyndsey Parker

    In an unprecedented and exciting move on American Idol's part, the potential coronation songs by just-announced Season 13 top two finalists Jena Irene and Caleb Johnson are out now on iTunes and Soundcloud, five whole days before they will be performed on live television. And really, both songs sound like winners. Just like Phillip Phillips's "Home" (the best-selling Idol single ever, in case you didn't know), Jena and Caleb's coronation songs sound like real songs. Cool ...  | More »

  • Video: Hunter Hayes on 'Storyline'

    May 14, 2014 5:50 PM ET | Yahoo Our Country

    Hunter Hayes is not an artist of few words...or few of anything, for that matter. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter is prolific in every area of his career, be it the number of instruments he plays, the vault of songs he's composed, or the interesting feats he's accomplished (most recently, for example, he broke the Guinness World Record for most concerts played in multiple cities in 24 hours). The young musician has just released his sophomore album, Storyline, and sat down w...  | More »

    Shakira just announced that she will not return to "The Voice" after Season 6 wraps up next week. Too bad. While I sometimes questioned her decisions as a coach during her bumpy first season, I immediately warmed to her — and in Season 6 she seemed to find her groove, picking great songs for Kristen Merlin, who went from underdog to America's sweetheart under Shakira's watch. Shakira will be missed, but of course, but Gwen Stefani and then returning coach Christina Aguilera w...  | More »

  • Black Keys = Bee’s Knees!

    May 13, 2014 5:01 PM ET | Yahoo New This Week
     |  Dave DiMartino

    The Black Keys: Turn Blue (Nonesuch) With its gleefully psychedelic cover and its dreamy, drifting opening track “Weight Of Love” coming in at close to 7 minutes, the eighth album by the Black Keys is really quite good. Part of that may simply be where the band now finds itself in its career arc: Past the point of having to prove much of anything to anybody, young enough to want to do things they or others haven’t simply because they have the opportunity, and as players, pre...  | More »

  • Video: Mary Lambert Talks 'Same Love'

    May 12, 2014 10:05 AM ET | Yahoo Maximum Performance

     Mary Lambert is best known for singing the hook on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's gay rights anthem "Same Love," which inspired the chorus for her own ballad, "She Keeps Me Warm." She's an outspoken advocate not only for LGBT rights but for self-love and body acceptance, but it took a long time for the Seattle songstress, spoken-word artist, and childhood abuse survivor to establish her voice, find success — and find inner peace. "My childhood sort of becomes a laundry l...  | More »
