    Neon Trees: Pop Psychology (Island/Mercury) There are certain records that seem to arrive at precisely the right time, offering music that resonates, fat-free and without excess, that are fascinating for their absolute purity. And that would be the case for this latest album by Provo, Utah’s Neon Trees, who with their flashy, multi-colored clothes and conspicuous flair for ‘80s-style pop seem slightly out of time—and deliberately so. With its healthy batch of aggressively ca...  | More »

    Although Jedward, aka "double divas of Dublin" John and Edward Grimes, were considered novelty contestants when they placed sixth on "The X Factor U.K." in 2009, they've managed to carve out quite a career for themselves since, with endorsement deals, several television shows, two competitive performances at Eurovision, and three albums to their credit.

  • Ex-Idol Danny Noriega Lip-Synchs Paula Abdul for Paula Abdul

    "American Idol" diehards surely recognize Danny Noriega as the hair-flipping, Simon-sass-talking Azusa teen from that show's Season 7.
