Glee-Smash Crossover! Megan Hilty Smooches Cory Monteith at GLAAD Media Awards – Maybe they should change the name of the show from Smash to Smack! Show-tunes diehards hustling for a face-off between TV’s dueling musical series got a kiss-off instead when Smash’s Megan Hilty stepped onstage at Saturday night’s GLAAD Media Awards in New York City to plant a big wet one on Glee’s Cory Monteith. About halfway through the show, Monteith—who cohosted the evening with fellow Glee alum Naya Rivera—opened the floor to a kissing auction that put each of them up for grabs.

But as the winners were invited on stage, the audience roared with excitement when Hilty stepped up next to Monteith. – Read more at Eonline

  • ronnie

    Nigel did not tweet Dave Matthews so I don’t think Philip will do him, maybe too close to home.  I think he will do Led Zeppelin or maybe Daughtry’s “Home,” which is risky for anyone but him

  • chessguy99

    I doubt Dave Matthews would clear songs for Idol, especially with the selling of songs on iTunes. IIRC, he’s always been critical of how the music industry works, with Sony and UMG dominating. Since Idol is in bed with UMG, I can’t see him allowing his music to be used.

    No one with a ridiculous small range should be allowed to stay close to a Zeppellin’s song. But I can imagine P2 speaking/growling through the entire song and thursday Jimmy saying Robert Plant loved it (who probably has no idea about what AI is).

    I think Elise already said her idol is Robert Plant, so probably will be her.

  • getgetaway

    P2 singing Dave Matthews is too obvious. I think it’s between Lifehouse and Daughtry. Nigel tweeted 6 names. And by process of elimination, I can’t see Deandre, Josh, Heejun doing either Lifehouse or Daughtry.
     
    The PHILCO training is coming.  Each tweeted funny pics yesterday of one another in crazy make-up; Colton bald and Phil fat.

    Today we had a referendum in Slovenia. It was about our new family law that would update the current one and give children with gay parents equal rights. Polls before referendum showed that the voters supported the new law. But, the sad part is, they didn’t bother to go and vote. The new family law failed, homophobes and conservatives won. I feel so disgusted with my country I  just want to return my citizenship and move away.

    are you gonna post any clips from the uk voice?  I hear it premiered yesterday against simons bgt?  I wonder if it was a clone of the US version – can’t help but notice they also chose 3 male and 1 female coaches (with one group guy and 1 black guy)…I also read an interview where jessie j and will.i.am claimed that producers wanted them to up the banter/fighting between them in the blind auditions but they claim they refused but in the end , it happened naturally.  C’mon , these folks all know its a TV show and people watch for the judges banter as much as the talent…Theyre professionals and know what it takes to make a good TV show…I just keep thinking Idol vs the Voice and how I know the name of all the Idol contestants and more about their lives and t he Voice, I know nothing.  Im ready to give up on the Voice- I actually am finding it predictable and boring…still giving it a chance – dvr and then watch the 2 hour episode in 30 minutes to see if anything great performances.  Interesting also how will.i.am said he has 4 outstanding global stars in his 10 member team.  I don’t know if they’ve already taped the battle rounds, but if not, it does add credence to the battle rounds are really shams as the coaches (and producers) already know whom they want to pick to go to the live shows.  It makes the whole blind audition moot if they then still pick the more commercial artists, or the ones with the best backstory.  I think if I were a 20 year old aspiring singer, Id still have gone for Idol over the Voice…and if I were older, Id definitely have gone for XF…$5 million guaranteed is pretty insane…and its really $5 million – unlike AGT whose 1 million prize is spread out over 20 years or so and winners who take the cash upfront end up with only about $200,000…and whats the prize? a unpromoted record and some dates in Vegas?

    I wouldn’t take Nigel’s tweet too seriously. He could have just been rattling off some of the idols of the current idols and not necessarily giving a clue about what they are actually singing. Not doubting the idols won’t be that obvious about their choices, but I’m not sure if Nigel meant that to be spoilerific.

    Colton also tweeted a picture this morning of DeAndre in a Team Dixon shirt.  Kid looked like he just woke up too.

    Erika was also on a flight to NYC with Haley this morning. Unfortunately, I think there was a problem with the plane though so they might still be in LA. Erika tweeted a pic of them together.

    I’m NOT going to cover The Voice UK. I can barely stand the US version, so there’s NO WAY I’m going to wade through those videos every week.

    I just can’t take more television right now, to be honest.  And I promised myself I would take time off from blogging on the weekends. I’m already losing my mind as it is. lol.

    I’ll post a video or two, at poster’s suggestion though. I’m going to post one video today.

    Something just too cool about Erika and Haley hanging out in the Airport and on the flight chatting about music. I think Erika is hanging with the perfect person this weekend to counsel her on this weeks elimination, and probably having a blast doing it.

    I’m sorry to hear the family law wasn’t voted in.  You have every right to feel disappointed, but please don’t move away.  Slovenia needs you!  It’s good people like you who will help make your country more tolerant.  This was just one referendum.  There will be others in the future.

     I threw a lot of votes Shiobans way season 9, a few of her performances blew me away. I meant to buy her album, but never got around to it until now after listening to her Moonbaby track. In my opinion the “moon baby” is much better off without the “Lunar Valve”. There are still some copies of her limited edition CD out there. At least I hope so, since that’s what I ordered rather than the digital download.

    I sort of hope P2 doesn’t do Dave Matthews. It seems to make a lot of DM fans angry that Phillip is so similar. I’m not really a Dave fan, so I wouldn’t know. None of the names Nigel tweeted are people P2 has listed as idols though. I agree with the person who said maybe he was just naming random people who may be covered. I know Colton likes Lifehouse and Daughtry, but I think he’ll do Lifehouse. As for Phillip, I wouldn’t be surprised if his idol is not included in Nigels tweet, although he has done a Beyonce cover…hmm…that could be interesting.

    Hee Jun seems to be hinting that he’ll sing A Song For You.

    Can see him having a winner with this. Ray Charles, Donny Hathaway, Michael Buble all have great covers and any of them could be his idol.

    Kris just tweeted that he’s on a flight to Vegas (after almost getting on the wrong plane and ended up on his way to St. Louis – lol).

    Wonder what he’s going to do there…something connected to the LITV performance next month? They have been having some LITV artists doing concerts in mid-air to promote it. Would be cool if Kris got to do that.

    But that’s just a guess. He could be going there for all kinds of reasons. Or he could be connecting through on his way to L.A. …

    Hmm :D

  • windmills

    I might be inferring wrong but from this Hollie tweet it sounds like she could possibly be singing a Carrie song this week? Or, maybe there’s some other reason she wants Carrie to watch Idol this week.

    http://twitter.com/#!/CavanaghAI11/status/184002617683357696

    @CavanaghAI11
    @carrieunderwood thank you so much for the necklace i wear it everyday And I almost cried reading the letter PS try to watch idol this week

    I don’t think Carrie’s Hollie’s idol per se but there’s youtubes out there of Hollie singing Temporary Home (here), I Told You So (here), and I Know You Won’t (here). And, Hollie sang Carrie’s Change at Sing For Your Life this year.

    IF (big if) Hollie’s singing a Carrie song, going back to Nigel’s tweet would that mean one of the guys is singing Mariah? Maybe H2 is singing Hero.

  • judes

    Yaaaay!! I just checked i-Tunes here in Australia & it Kris’s single was available from the 23rd.After last time with none of his music available here I am so pleased that I can purchase this from i-Tunes. I am now hopeful the album will also be available!!Thank you RCA- they seem to be doing a much better job making Kris’s music available in more places around the world!!

    Ohh-I also checked Casey James album & wohoo-that’s also available here.Also James Durbin’s is now available on i-Tunes although it wasn’t at first. Things are really looking up!!

  • Valentin432

    I think Nigel was just tweeting a few of the artists the current contestants admire.
    For instance Beyonce/Mariah could be refering to Jessica and Lifehouse/Daughtry to Colton.

    Hollie doing Carrie is a good idea, it’s different from the artists she’s covered so far and she could pick an uptempo.

     Yes in Malaysia as well as Moscow. I was more afraid of Moscow than Malaysia but as it turn out he seemed to be at least well received there even among some of the dj’s.  Even in US things have been changing although slowly but changing.  It will take time but maybe someday everyone will be treated the same.

    What a great shot of James and the band.  I read several tweets from those who were at the concert in Dallas today. Sounds like he made some new fans. The whole band was super excited to be together and plugged in!

    The platinum hair is growing on me a bit – he looks pretty good as a blonde. Didn’t like the orangy color before this stage.

  • happyhexer

     MJ, I appreciate that you cover The Voice USA.  Since the conversion from analog to digital TV, I can no longer get NBC (and I refuse to pay for cable to get a “free” station).  I “watch” The Voice here at MJs.  (Yes, I know The Voice has its own website, but I find it difficult to navigate.)  I enjoy the show, although I agree with the naysayers that the format does not allow viewers to get to know/get invested in the contestants.

    Elise answered a fan question by saying she plays:

    She played piano t24 week when she sang Adele’s One & Only. I’d wager Elise is actually the strongest musician out of the finalists.

    I am constantly amazed at Adam’s gift for rearranging a song for an acoustic performance. I mean, it has to be difficult to make such a successful change to acoustic, especially the upbeat songs. He manages to convey the meaning, energy and emotion of a song even almost bare of instrumentation, amazing.
