  • Video: Pentatonix Perform Their Holiday Hit

    December 20, 2013 5:46 PM ET | Yahoo Maximum Performance

    During their run on the a cappella talent show "The Sing-Off" in 2011, Pentatonix (Mitch Grassi, Scott Hoying, Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado, and Kevin Olusola) placed no fewer than 11 songs in the top 10 Soundtracks chart on iTunes. After their win, their YouTube channel went on to rack up tens of millions of views and their debut CD, PTX Vol. 1, entered the Billboard 200 at number 14 and the iTunes Pop chart at number one. It's arguably Pentatonix's rampant popularity, along with ...  | More »

    Adam Lambert has had a crazy year, highlighted by a critically heralded headlining set with Queen at the iHeartRadio Festival, a recurring role on "Glee," and a co-write on Avicii's hit album…and marked by a split from his longtime record label, RCA. As 2013 comes to a close, Yahoo Music caught up with him in Yahoo's Purple Room lounge before his performance at the TrevorLIVE concert in Hollywood on Dec. 8, to talk about the year's highest highs and what's in store ...  | More »

  • The 8 Most-Robbed Contestants of ‘The Voice’ Season 5

    This has become an annual tradition (or, in the case of "The Voice," a biannual one): listing the robbed finalists and semifinalists from any given talent show. Not all of my favorites can make a show's top 10, and obviously, only one can win. So any singing-show season offers its unfair share of heartache. It's both a blessing and a curse on "The Voice" in particular that the talent level is so high and the talent pool so deep. This ensures that a lot of very worthy candidates get...  | More »

  • The 12 Most-Robbed Contestants of ‘The X Factor’ Season 3

    The "X Factor" Season 3 finale is right around the corner — which means soon Alex & Sierra, Jeff Gutt, or Carlito Olivero will win a record contract and go on to follow in the footsteps of, um, Melanie Amaro and Tate Stevens. All three contestants are very talented, but there are still a few others that I'm shocked didn't make it at least a bit closer to this year's finale. So, without further ado, here is my list of the most-robbed contestants of this "X Factor" sea...  | More »

  • Why are B-Real, Xzibit and Demrick Calling Themselves Serial Killers?

    December 13, 2013 6:15 PM ET | Yahoo Hip Hop
     |  Billy Johnson, Jr.

    It's not hard to take literally the title Serial Killers, the name of B-Real, Xzibit and Demrick's new super group. The trio that released its debut mixtape, "Serial Killers Vol. 1," on Halloween, lives up to its namesake for the video for its lead single, "The First 48." A play on A&E's homicide investigation series, the video gets graphic. In a bloody scene, Xzibit takes an officer hostage, sealing his mouth with duct tape, threatening him with a riffle and chopping off...  | More »
