    Last month, just a week before Thanksgiving, Season 10 American Idol Scotty McCreery gave a select group of lucky fans something to be extra thankful for: An intimate concert at Durham, N.C.'s historic Carolina Theatre. The Ram Country Live show was not only special due to its exclusivity; the North Carolina State U. junior also had surplus pep in his step, as he's from the Raleigh-Durham area himself!  Since we knew that everyone couldn't make it out to the concert, we ...  | More »

  • R. Kelly’s ‘Black Panties’: Tight And Fitting!

    As music fans coast into the last half of December—with the excitement of both the recent American Music Awards and the Grammy Awards concert behind us—one thing is obvious: Nothing new is any good! Well, maybe that’s an overstatement. Something probably is! Still, as I look at my carefully compiled list of the week’s most interesting album releases, it does strike me as odd than more than half are either reissues of older material—by artists who’ve alrea...  | More »

    As "American Idol's" Danny Noriega might say, this is almost TMTH (too much to handle). Yahoo's Reality Rocks can exclusively confirm rumors that the wild Season 7 Idol, famous for his perfectly purple-streaked emo hair, skinny ties, and sassing back to Simon Cowell, has just signed up for another, very different reality competition: "RuPaul's Drag Race"! And Danny is looking very different these days, too. Since leaving "Idol's" top 16 in 2008, Danny, now age 24, has rei...  | More »

  • Carrie Underwood's 'Sound of Music' Is All About the Sound

    Poor Carrie Underwood. The country superstar is really not getting a fair shake this week. Despite having a very limited formal acting résumé (2011's "Soul Surfer," plus a guest appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" in 2010), the former American Idol gamely accepted the challenge of taking on one whopper of a role: The recreation of one of the most beloved characters in film history, "The Sound of Music's" Maria Von Trapp. Oh yeah, and not just any redux. Underwood p...  | More »

  • Simon Cowell Jokes About Cutting…In Front of Demi Lovato

     |  Lyndsey Parker

    On Wednesday's "X Factor," judge Paulina Rubio told rocker contestant Jeff Gutt that she wanted to see him "show more blood" onstage. Yes, Paulina may suffer from a bit of a language barrier sometimes, but it was obvious she meant that metaphorically (as in the "blood, sweat, and tears" sense). Still, Simon Cowell took this as his opportunity to make a little joke. Except…it wasn't even a little funny, especially to one of the other judges at the table. "So, you want him to ...  | More »
